“Good budget hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for one night on a brief leisure visit to Manchester and was very happy with this hotel I booked through late rooms so was happy with the £42 I paid. Its not the hight of luxury but who would expect that at the price, reception staff were welcoming and I thought that ringing before hand to check if I wanted my room heating was a very nice touch! Rooms were clean bed was comfy and it was in easy walkin distance from the town and its attractions.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Good value for money, great location, especially for the Palace Theatre. We previously stayed on the Ibis on Portland Street, more expensive, but not necessarily any better. The room was clean, and the hotel telephoned me earlier on the morning of check-in to ask if we would like the heating turned up for our arrival as Manchester was particularly cold! Liked the fact that we could check in at whatever time and were not restricted to after 2 pm. We were also able to leave our bags on check-out which some other budget hotel chains don't!
The only downside was our room looked over a Student nightclub and was a bit noisy on the Thursday night.
Would definately book this hotel again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Charles Street to avoid nightclub noise

Great location and very clean.Basic yet was fit for purpose and pleasant staff.The only downside is the noise from the clubs.The windows let a lot noise through maybe an idea to be glazed like in Carlisle one but othewise a great place to stay .

Pretty much faultless, Ibis are a budget chain, but unlike Travelodge their hotels are habitable! £50 odd plus £10 to park in the middle of a vibrant city centre isn't a bad price, but everything was great, the hotel reception phoned us mid morning of our arrival day asking what temperature we would like the room pre-warmed(!) Cynics might say it's to potentially keep their heating bills at a minimum but it's a nice touch nonetheless.

There is a bar in the lobby with a relaxing modern ambience, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff, 2 glasses and a pitcher of ice? No problem.

Rooms very clean, nothing broken, soap, towels, tea and coffee in room all good.

Great location, a 10 minute walk to the very heart of the city. As a bonus, The Lass o' Gowrie, one of Manchester's very finest pubs, is about 50 paces from the hotel front door.

The only thing I would advise is that the multi-storey car park opposite has a height limit of 1.8 metres, so if you're a Land Rover or 4 x 4 owner you'll have to park at the NCP Euro Car park down the side of the Lass o Gowrie, but it's only £3 more for 24 hours (£13) and the car park is manned by security 24/7.

Room Tip: height restriction 1.8 metres in University Multi Storey car park opposite the hotel, beware!

Booked in for two nights for an interview at the University. Not the Ibis standard we are used to on the continent, but clean and comfortable. Tea, coffee and a kettler are available in the room. I would definitely stay again there and recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room at a higher level. Ours was at the 1st and we could hear the street noise.

Stayed here for one night during half term...only 36quid for the room!!! Bargain! We received a phone call from the hotel just to check we were coming as we arrived after check in, we thought this was a really good idea. The lobby has recently been renovated, it looks very professional and creates a good first impression. The bar is ok but we found it quite expensive.

The staff at the reception were very friendly and courteous. The explained everything clearly and were happy to ring us a taxi.

Rooms - big bed, clean and had what you would expect! Shower very good.

Location- we walked to bars in the centre but did get a taxi to spinning fields.

Overall - enjoyable stay, great staff and brill value!
