“Basic but the price is right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is situated a quick 5/10 minute walk to Manchester City Centre via the canal. Car parking is off site and is £3 for 24 hours. This car park is not staffed & during my visit a car window had been smashed - so position your car where it can be seen.
The rooms are small but functional with plenty of storage space. TV with basic channel selection. Desk and plug socket by the bed which is excellent - many other hotels the socket is always at the other side of the room. Good shower with LED disco lights. The rooms can sleep 3 people but personally for me the matress was rock hard and creeked every time I moved.
I would probably stay again if I was in Manchester partying, as it's ideal for a group of friends.
Over all for the cheap price the hotel provides a place to get your head down, it's not luxury but the price isn't either.

Many thanks for reviewing your recent stay with us. It's unfortunate there had been damage to one of the cars in the nearby pay and display car park, although this is privately managed, we do refer all our guests here and believe this to be an extremely rare case.
I'm very pleased you were satisfied with the features in the rooms and felt your stay was value for money.
We hope to be able to welcome you back in the future.
Kind regards,
Frederic Dumont

We enjoyed our stay at the Ibis, it would have been better if there was a kettle in the room . The location was good, walking distance into town. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only complaint was that the mattress was hard.

Basic hotel 10 mins walk from city centre, not far from portland street. Stayed in a standard size double room, which was very quiet throughout the night and bathroom and shower were very clean. Friendly, helpful staff on reception and at breakfast. Overall good hotel for price range.

Lovely modern budget hotel. Decor, lighting and the multi coloured shower made for a very comfy stay. Had a triple room with sofa bed, loads of room. Cafe downstairs but no kettle in room which would have been nice. Very good value, tram stop right outside, only one stop to city centre if you don't fancy the walk.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

A variety of rooms are available and all seem reasonably priced. The check-in/out and breakfast staff were friendly and efficient, and the entire hotel appeared clean and well cared for as it should be being so new!

The rooms were small as expected but very well organised so appear bigger and are certainly good enough. The shower opens directly into the sleeping area so creating a better sense of space. With the window closed there is no traffic noise heard at all, despite the location on the busy inner ringroad. The bed was wonderfully comfortable.

There isn't even a kettle in the room (it's a budget Ibis so no frills at all) but there is a machine in the lobby, as well as a snack machine. I stayed one night and it wasn't an issue and I would happily return here, but if I were staying longer than a couple of nights or with children I would consider somewhere with a kettle and perhaps refrigeration facilities, maybe a more pricey hotel or a self catering apartment.

The area is good, very handy for the Northern Quarter and for Piccadilly and the city centre as a whole. It's a short and scenic walk along the Ashton canal to pretty much everywhere you may want to go. I thoroughly recommend the independent (and licensed) café on the next block - sitting on the canal with delicious cakes was bliss.
