Stayed here for a hen night and what a great space! 2 minute walk from the train station, check in was swift and the receptionist very helpful. We sat in the bar for a while and noticed an incredible number of staff.

The apartment was spacious and well kept, nice big kitchen and good living room space to hold us all. We had a double room and a family room, all lovely and comfortable, good lighting, just could have done with a few more towels.

My only criticism is that the bedrooms in particular get incredibly hot and given our window looked out onto the atrium we didn’t feel it was safe to be left open. Hindsight is wonderful and we should have asked for a fan but given we got back late and were all tired it wasn’t the end of the world, just something to consider if you are staying for a few days.

When I stayed here in March I loved it, what I didn't realise was that we were then given an upgraded two room apartment, this time we were not and I have to say the difference was noticeable, the main problem was the lack of privacy. Two of the rooms faced onto an inner atrium, the living room facing this would not be our choice but the bedroom was unpleasant. Light shone through the blind and it was not possible in the intense heat to securely open the windows as they opened straight onto the atrium and had no limiting device. This would be a deal breaker for us another time, so we would price the deluxe rooms against competitors. If this doesn't matter to you then no problem the apartment is still roomy and well equipped including free wi-fi.

Last time we noticed the cleaning was a bit underpar, the same could be said this time, bins not emptied (on arrival), crockery dirty but it's a big task to clean these apartments and the staff were responsive when we left a note requesting missing dishwasher tablets, coffee etc. Reception staff were generally excellent. When we enquired about a different room the man who spoke to us wasn't so convincing, he simply said no they were full, his tone conveyed we were lucky to have a different room last time and he was of course right. Parking is well priced and secure for central Manchester.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment away from the main road and if you care about privacy then opt fo a de-luxe roo...

On arrival due to it being a very busy day for the Hotel, the receptionist wasnt very helpful and confused the group regarding how we were to pay for our rooms.
We had been given an upgraded room, this on the whole was lovely but lacking in some areas, the tables were marked with pink marker pen and the dressing table in one of the rooms had a lovely mirror but no light so was near impossible to be used as I couldn't see what I was doing.
The bed was very uncomfortable, lumpy and hard, the shower in the en-suite had no temp controls and therefore unusable as we could not work out how to get it hotter. One of the plates was chipped in the Kitchen, also all the wiring in the lounge was all showing and lose.

I spent 2 days at Place apartments with a group of friends for a girls weekend in Manchester. It was absoluetly ideal for what we needed, and equally would work well for a family. We had a HUGE 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, with all facilities you'd expect and decorated very nicely. It is perfectly located around the corner from Piccadilly station and a 10 minute walk to the central shopping area, Bars, restaurants etc.

This was a top spot to spend a few days - big roomy apartment with enormous bedrooms. Kitchen had everything you needed and there are lots of food places nearby. It is very close to the main train station (Manchester Piccadilly) and also not far to trams and buses. There are lots of internal doors that you can't leave open so a few door stops would be good. It was also incredibly hot when we were there and there were two fans which we used constantly. The living area was very hot and to get air in you had to open the blind and a big window on to the walkway (so that is a big strange when people walked past). The staff were all friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend the Place and stay there again if in Manchester.

Absolutely stunning place. Gorgeous venue with original brickwork walls and iron girders throughout. Modern, bright and with great facilities, ie. gym, reception and bar. Plus large conference rooms (not used) but looked great for wedding and conferences. Our apartment had 2 great sized bedrooms (one ensuite) + dining/lounge/kitchen area and one other bathroom and a great big hall. Lovely fluffy towels provided with shower gel, shampoo, soap and moisturiser. Bathrobes for all 4 of us. Lovely crisp white bedlinen. Furnished beautifully throughout. Even had milk in the fridge, teabags, coffee and sugar in canisters - then found dishcloth, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets - then tablets for the washing machine/dryer too. Better than anything I have stayed in!! Centrally located right near the main Manchester Piccadilly Station, yet a stonesthrow from shopping centre and bars/restaurants. Fabulous, will definitely return!!

Room Tip: Our friends had the penthouse and it was fab if you can afford!
