“Good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

Having tried several aparthotels in Manchester, on balance maybe this one scores so highly by not making claims of 'luxury' furnishings or '5 star quality'. What I got was a well equipped and well laid out apartment, where all the appliances etc were functional, which is all I was after really. The bed / pillow / towel quality wasn't as good as others I've stayed at, but I'd sacrifice that for the general state of repair that I've had bad experiences with elsewhere.

Location is central but can be noisy. The apartment I was in had the living area facing the street, but the bedroom set back behind it which shielded a lot of the noise over night.

Central location and very good service. The main problem was that the location means it can be very noisy, which resulted in a poor night's sleep.

The rooms were of a very good size and reasonably clean, but overall maintenance was lacking creating a poor impression.

Reasonable prices for a serviced apartment.

Just back from an overnight stay here, having read some rather mixed reviews on here I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was excellent. Reception staff were friendly on check in, gave directions to room, and explained the main door entry code operation system.

I was given a top floor room facing the printworks. I've never stayed in an apartment before so had no expectations of what I would find but I was pleasantly surprised. There was a little entrance hall with a door off to the bathroom and a coat hanging space on the wall, also controls for the hot water and heating. Then through another door was a lovely open plan kitchen/ living space with a set of stairs leading up to the attic space bedroom.

Kitchen was well equipped, fridge/freezer cooker microwave, lots of utensils and pots, pans and plates. There was a nice dining table and chairs, plenty of seating, a sofa, sofa bed and chair and the TV worked well. Bedroom area had a little bedside table and a wardrobe with extra bedding if you needed it. bathroom was a good size and had towels, soap and shampoo.

Obviously with it being right across from the printworks it can get a little noisy at certain times, but what else do you expect? either you want to be in a good central location (with a little noise) or you go somewhere a bit further out of the city centre (and pay extra to get taxis/buses).
Being a solo female traveller I'd much rather be close to where I want to go than get taxis or public transport late at night. If your a light sleeper just take some ear plugs, sorted!

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, it was great value compared to most hotels in the surrounding area and you get so much more for your money.

Room Tip: If your a light sleeper, request a room on the side away from the printworks.

Although the apartments are looking a bit tired (wardrobes falling apart, skirting boards missing) they are clean, the staff are friendly and try and accommodate requests for early check in and the location is brilliant for Printworks/birdcage/arndale. Would recommend for groups not after luxury, but for convenience!!

Having stayed here previously in 2011 I don't think the apartments have been refurbished since. Had a very nice stay but simple little things missing like kitchen roll, washing up liquid,scourers. Having stayed in a few apart hotels previously these things make a stay more homely. Other than that loved my stay great comfy beds ! Would have liked a tv in bedroom. Staff great and check in check out very efficient.

Good location , very clean and spacious, comfy beds, the odd mark here and there but for £99.a night with 4 staying cannot fault it. A bit noisy but didn't expect anything else being next to the printworks definitely will return

Good location right by the print works, ideal for us after going to a concert. Apartment looking very tired, the lampshade in one bedroom was absolutely covered in dust, the bed covers on one of the beds was ripped. Mattresses all needed replacing. The bathroom had broken tiles, towels were tiny and one had a hole in. The shelf in the bathroom had peeling paint. Dents in walls from doors banging. Only one bathroom - thought there would have been an ensuite. Can imagine it would have been lovely a few years ago. Didn't sleep well, very noisy and the lights from the print works were coming into the bedroom even though the blinds were closed. Nicer places to stay in Manchester. Needs a good clean and a revamp.
