“Great location but very noisy!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

We stayed at the REM hotel on a wednesday night as we were going to the arena and out on canal street afterwards, if you want a hotel on canal street the location is amazing, literally on the street above REM (men only gay bar). Our room was small but nice with really comfy bed and shower but shared toilet between 6 rooms put us off a bit!if you book this hotel you should expect a lot of noise, we came back to hotel at about 1 but noise outside went on until 5am (and this was on a Wednesday!!)also we were next door to the boiler room in bedroom 6 and the noise was horrendous, really loud noise from the boiler kept us awake all night. Breakfast was ok, I found it a bit weird that the bedrooms had a code to get in rather than a key, this felt a bit unsafe to me. All in all would only recommend this hotel if you are going out on the lash for a big night and not planning on getting much sleep!

i had the pleasure of staying here before , as all hotels were fully booked and thought it was ok untill i go into the room . Think i should of gone to strange ways for the night for sure prison would be much nicer place to stay . and you get your own toilet aswell .
very dirty also the bathroom i had to share was awfull aswell. I do not understand both gay hotels in manchester this place and the new union are just a disgrace

I have stayed before and the place was terrible. It has been bought over and the new owners have cleaned the place up , refurbished it and it is now brilliant. for the location it is well worth the money and the rooms are spotless

beds are all new with comfy covers etc. even the noice from the bar downstairs is not thatr bad! lerts face it your booking this hotel to be close to nightlife!!!

breakfast are out of this world!!!

welcome back rem - the scene has been missing you!

I really felt that paying £50 for this room was a total waste of money. Who do you think you are? It's an insult to charge for such a disgusting room. AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE

Nothing speacial at all, booked this hotel last minute as were going to a concert at the MEN in Manchester. We stayed mid week.

The location of the hotel is above a pub so you check in there and go up to your room.

The rooms are old and in need of renovation, the safe did not work. The beds were on their last legs.

It was very basic and just a place to rest our heads for the travel the next day. The bedding and towels were clean but over starched so were a little rough.

The bathroom is shared so you have to come out of your room to use the toilet and shower however you have a basin sink in your room with tea making facilities.

The location of the hotel is great as there were plenty of bars and clubs in the area.

It wasn't so bad that I would never go there again if I had to but it would not be a first choice.

The breakfast the next day was nice.
