“A bit disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2007

Have stayed in this hotel before and had been happy with it so I booked it again for my most recent trip to the UK. I actually had two bookings, with one night in another city in between. I was disappointed to find that when I asked to store my suitcase for the night I was away, the answer was no. Management would not allow it. This will affect my choice of hotels next time I am in Manchester and I will probably not choose the IBIS again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2007

On the many occasions we go to Manchester this is the hotel of choice, only stopping elsewhere on special events or if this one is booked up. Brilliant location for Chinatown and the Village, only a 10 minute walk from the city centre or Piccadilly station. The rooms are basic but clean and functional and the hotel has a bar and restaurant/snack facility available. A good choice if all you want to do is get your head down after a night out.

  • Liked — Functional at the right price
  • Disliked — Gets booked up well in advance.
