Avoid this place at all costs. Reception is not manned staff next door at Tea 42 try to help but make it clear it's not their main job. Apartments are dirty smell of urine in bathrooms overpowering and in some apartments we viewed had a terrible smell of smoke and cannibis. We refused to stay due to the condition of... More

Myself and my daughter are staying here now and I can honestly say we have found it really pleasurable. Smooth check in with a really pleasant guy and offered the top apartment which was lovely and quiet and through a little corridor of our own. Having read the reviews on here after booking I was pleasantly surprised at the place... More

We spent 4 nights at the Blue Rainbow Aparthotel in July. When we arrived around noon, there was a notice on the door asking clients to check in at the restaurant next door (??). However, even without checking his computer, the restaurant manager (who obviously had other things to do, especially around lunchtime...) told us that NOT a single room... More

I really do wish we had checked trip advisor prior to our stay. We booked a premium room on Saturday 16th July 16' for a special occasion for 3 people. Upon arrival to this establishment, the first thing we were greeted with was a notice outside on the door to call a mobile number, as the receptionist was away from... More

We were in Room 101 !!! We booked an apartment for 2 nights whilst we were in Manchester for my daughter's graduation. We've stayed in other Manchester aparthotels before and been very happy BUT not with Blue Rainbow. There was no receptionist upon arrival, we had to stand on the street as the door was locked - he came sauntering... More

On paper (or rather, on their website) this looked like a great hotel. Clean, modern apartments with great amenities in a great location. The location was genuinely great, and having a separate lounge/dining area and bedroom was wonderful. But unfortunately, that's about all the positive things I have to say. On arrival, I was given a key to a room... More

The room was dirty, not maintained. The bathroom was mouldy, staff unhelpful. When we arrived to check in, the woman on the desk basically complained about having to do her job. They didn't turn the lights on, so we were left to wander around in the dark to find the lift and the room. The website claims there is a... More

Booked the blue rainbow appt for us to stay the night before my friends wedding. It was a bit hard to find as it was tucked away in a corner and not very well sign posted. So would advise them to sign post it better. Once we got there we checked in was pleasantly surprised as it was as it... More
