The hotel is easy to get to from Piccadilly Station just jump on the purple route no 3 free metroshuttle it stops opposite the hotel.
I arrived late afternoon was checked in quickly and given all the information that I needed about the hotel. I have only ever stayed at the Ibis economy in Birmingham and this hotel was a pleasant surprise.
Room big and bright and quiet despite facing a busy street, lots of storage space. Was also quite comfortable despite lack of armchair.
Location wise was perfect was attending an event in Manchester's gay village which is a 5/10 minute walk, its around the corner from China Town and slightly further on the city's art gallery and Albert Square.
Has a Subway sandwich shop on the ground floor as well as an Indian restaurant and countless Chinese all you can eat buffets and restaurants also a very nice and hectic kebab shop perfect food after several pints.
The breakfast was good and filling didn't need to eat anything else till late afternoon.
Would stay there again.
The staff seemed to be genuinely friendly and were helpful
