“great stay”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

We stayed at Abode for 4 nights. Our room was large with a huge bed, 3 comfortable chairs and the bathroom was roomy too. The whole placed was clean and the room was attended to every day. There is ample storage, well we found it so. Air con is used as the windows cant be opened but again this didn't prove inconvenient. Ample tea/coffee facilities in the room this is a must for me along with the body/hair shampoo.
The hotel has managed to keep some of the original features which work well along with the modern
The hotel reception staff were friendly, helpful and willing to chat (if not to busy). We had a drink in the bar and again the bar staff were happy to help and engage in conversation.
We ate in Michael Caines restaurant on our last eve, this was an experience that I suggest you treat yourselves to.
It is situated within 5 mins of Piccadilly station and again within minutes of the centre of Piccadilly, perfect in my eyes.

Room Tip: We upgraded and our room was on the 3rd floor, no noise from lift and spacious room.

I stayed at the Abode for one night for work. I was very impressed at the spacious room & bathroom. The room was well equipped & I loved the idea of the ruck box although I did resist temptation.

The breakfast the morning was excellent, can highly recommend the eggs benedict. All hot food us made fresh & good selection of pastries, cereal, juice etc.

Location us excellent, 2 minutes from picadilly station. However this does mean it can be quite noisy late into the night with sirens etc so if you are a light sleeper id request a rio on 4th floor or at the back of the hotel.

Room is already booked for next year.

Stayed here for a night in June. We got there well before check in time, so completed all the paperwork and we’re able to leave our baggage behind until we returned later in the day. from advice put on trip advisor i requested a room away from the lifts and stairs, and indeed our room was well away from both.
Initially i upon arrival at our room i was a little disappointed as it looked a bit like a converted store room and was a bit dark.
However you soon realize that this is an Old building and they have done their best to convert it to a descent hotel. the ceilings are very high and the storage, again initially looks weird but is very functional, the bathroom was huge, as was the bed ! The bed is one of, if not the biggest bed I’ve ever slept in, and we both found it very comfortable.
The location of the Abode is very good if you want to be in the center of everything in town, and our room was very quiet given where it is.
There was only one problem while we were there, this was to do with a problem with the shower in that it had had a "quick" repair using insulation tape but this has given up and is now leaking, which is bad enough however i tried to move the shower head and the whole unit came propelling out of the fitting, which isn’t ideal. I did report this to the front of house staff when we checked out and they did look genuinely horrified and apologized. That said i would happily stay at the Abode again, should the need arise.

Room Tip: as others have said, the quieter rooms are awy from the lifts / stairs

Abode is everything a hotel should be. Warm, friendly staff, rooms full of character (and delicious Lancashire snacks to boot) and decent restaurants. We stayed the night with friends and as we live abroad, it was fantastic to find such a great hotel nice and close to Manchester Piccadilly station, at the heart of Manchester's diverse nightlife. As Michael Caine's restaurant was closed (apparently it always is on a Monday) we opted for a night at his more informal spot also in the hotel, MC Café Bar and Grill. Food was delicious, the menu well thought-through and perfectly presented, and the cocktails both inventive and moreish. As it happens, we all went to sunny Manchester for a night out and Abode was so cosy in every way, it turned into the perfect night in.

Room Tip: If you get an offer to upgrade, take it. We were facing the main road and noise really wasnt a probl...

Unfortunatelly did not stay here but have to say something after a quick visit. The gentleman (Alan or Alex, sorry did not catch the name) at reception is a real gentleman!!! I was wandering around busy manchester all day to find myself a room but everywhere fully booked. Popped in abode, they were full as well but this super helpful gentleman at reception found a room for me in hotel just around the corner within minutes!!! Now I'm going to checkin and will definitely come back to abode for a pint! And if all staff are ao nice and professionals like this gentleman i am surely booking the room there for my holiday in august! Excellent customer service!!!

A wonderfully large superior double with the most comfortable (not too firm) bed, parquet floors, relaxing decor. Room service arrived within minutes and was delicious. The tuck box in the room was unusual and tempting and every member of staff i came across was very friendly. Manchester at it's best! Interestingly i was also in room 314 which another reviewer has called 'small'. Different expectations I guess, but it was very reasonably priced.

We stayed for two nights visiting family, and needed somewhere near the station. Location was excellent. Staff very friendly and quick check in and out.
We had a comfortable room, ideal for us and was clean and tidy.
The downstairs cocktail bar is worth a visit, good atmosphere, also the upstairs bar was fine.
