Was here on business for one night. The hotel was clean and so was the room, and it was...functional! Ticked all the boxes without being pretentious. It's difficult to say any more than that. Served a purpose. Well located for transport and in the heart of things.

This hotel was excellent from start to finish. At reception, having already checked in online, we had a slight delay but a perfect time for a coffee. The rooms are functional, a little on the small size but has removed all the tat you usually get for no reason. The room came up to the usual high standard expected of...

Not a patch on the old hotel. Writing this at 02:34 as cannot get to sleep because of wonky air conditioning, noise outside and hearing every move of the moron in the room next door. I asked for a quiet room. Room small, no storage, cheap and tacky and a wash basin that has no plug. Total rubbish. Will never...

Having stayed here before on a number of occasions, I was excited to see how it had changed now that it has been re-branded Ibis Styles. It took me a while to work out that the 'style' of this particular hotel is the weather. My first disappointment was the reception - replaced by a very plain table and receptionists using...

Excellent contemporary hotel. Top notch customer service, very welcoming and easy going/helpful. They even refused a tip! Couldn't fault if I wanted to! We didn't get a room with a view but only there one night so it didn't matter. For mid Man City centre, it was very quiet, loved the metal strips around the blinds blocking out light and...

We were on the 5th floor. Room decor was lovely, bathroom good . Easy check in and early check in which was a bonus. However, window in room needed replacing/ very cold. And the bar downstairs stopped serving at 10.45pm-even for Hotel guests, which we found astoundingly bad; considering it is a City centre hotel! Breakfast was free but was...

Overnight stay for a gig at the MEN. Reception area is lovely, airey and clean! That's where the good review ends! Our room was dated and tired. It looked like somebody had broken into it too, as lock was loose and you could see evidence of a forced entry. I'd say in major need of renovation. Unfortunately, this seems to...

The bathroom was dirty, the bedroom walls were shabby and we were woken up by building work that was being carried out in the next room. Horrible horrible place. Expensive price...
