A very desent hotel within Manchester City limits. Just 5 mins walk from Arndale Centre, and 10 min from Picadilly Gardens, Aflecks centre and Printworks.
All within walking distance from the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Very new, chic and modern hotel.
Quick check in.
Room medium sized with 2 twin raised beds, lots of pillows, bathroom with a bathtub and a shower, bathroom amenities, hair dryer etc. A big LCD screen with few local and UK channels. No international selection but with paid satellite on demand and pay movies.
No free wifi in room as advertised, and not sure if any free wifi in whole hotel. Wired internet cost 5 quid for 24hr connection.
Free bottled water and coffee making equipment, but only depending who will be servicing your room. Some days we wouldnt get even toilet paper. So take care on cleaning service.
In room safe, mini bar (automatically charging) iron with iron board, airconditioning, 2 telephones, and non opening windows overlooking the city. Overall desent and modern rooms keeping ichotels standards.
There is also room service until 11pm with fair prices.
Hotel gets full of aircrews so always busy. Has a bar and a restaurant, some conference facilities and a very well maintained and with state of the art equiment gym. It is available 24hr therefore I give a big positive on the hotel!
Breakfast is fair. Typically English with some cooked and some raw meats, eggs and cereals and coffee or tea. Very limited selection of bread though, sliced bread and some bread rolls. Could be really improved.
Overall happy and satisfied with the hotel. Specially with gym and location. And new modern facilities.
Unhappy because I wanted to rent a movie and I couldnt because I had to run downstairs to the reception so they could get pre-approval on my credit card so they could open the pay movies (did not like that). No free in room wifi as was advertised.
