The location of this apartment was actually excellent, being hidden away behind the Arndale Centre along Edge Street. So it is really a walk away to the centre of Manchester. Downstairs there are lots of pubs and diners, if you're feeling lazy. However, there is also the problem of excessive noise coming up from all the drinking happening. The apartment is not really designed to sleep six adults at all. The sofa bed in the living area can handle probably 2 children no taller than 4 feet, so please change the advert to say 'Two-bed, sleeps 4 plus 2 children' because it was really misleading. One of my sons had to sleep on the the other 2-seater sofa which doesnt double as a sofa bed so you can imagine the neck pain he had to endure the day after. Kitchen amenities was o.k. except that there was a shortage of pots - there was only one pot so if you wanted to make soup and make spaghetti, you have to really take it easy and wait. You can tell that the people who furnished the kitchen dont really cook because the thoughtfulness to detail wasn't there. Bathroom was a nice with good supplies stocked up. The only catch was the heater needed some boosting if six adults was sharing this apartment, the last man in the shower would definitely be greeted by cold water.
If i would return to this place again, i would still give this place a thumbs up if i was coming with a bunch of lads. Thanks Urbana, i hope you will make up for the shortfall and improve.
Really clean, nicely decorated and well equipped appartments. We were a group of 10 girls so we stayed in 2 apartments on the same floor. We were only 5 mins walk from everywhere we wanted to go in the Northern Quarter. Brilliant!
Stayed at this apartment with friends whilst visiting Manchester for a concert, great place to stay, apartment lovely, location good and Claire the owner was really helpful. Will definitely book again the next time we come to Manchester.
Fantastic property - great location, modern and clean. Close enough to walk everywhere yet quiet enough to enjoy peace and quiet - loved it - we will be back
The apartments are perfect for staying in Manchester - modern, funky, spacious, very clean, right in the centre. They were great for a large group.
Plus Emma & Claire were superb and really great at staying in touch!
I would highly recommend.
