“Very clean and great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This hotel is very clean and very professional - but to be honest there is not much character or any uniqueness about it - it's great for business - we stayed for one night and it was for vacation but it was last night of our vacation and we had been all over and a nice and quite night was nice and needed! The english breakfast is amazing and very complete! Th location is good - right by china town and all the chinese restaurants - we walked extra 10 min and found more great restaurants, Italian, English, lounges ...

One night stay in July. The hotel is nice and modern. Friendly staff and ok sized rooms. Very central location by Portland Street.

One negative thing is that the aircondition could be better. Hot summers like this and you will sweat the night through, even with the temperature at its lowest.

But value for money.

I loved staying at the Novotel. The room was incredibly comfortable, the bed was the best of any hotel I have stayed in. The staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the bathrobe and Nespresso machine, and the free wifi. I was sorry to leave.

Stayed here on the 24th July while in Manchester on business, great loaction for Manchester Piccadilly station (10 minute walk) and close to all the bars and restaurants.

Check in very quick and as always informative, room good and breakfast spot on.

Only gripe was the bitter was off again as was the case last time i stayed here and not a lot of atmosphere , however another great stay and faultless service

Room Tip: Book early for best rates

Stayed with my wife at Novotel, Dickenson Street, Manchester for one night.

This hotel is hidden away in a back street but don't be fooled. The entrance, once you have found it, is bright, modern and welcoming, as are the staff on reception.
Guessing this was a "businessman's" hotel, I did not expect much, but I was wrong.
We had room 104, not the greatest of views, (I would guess that none of the rooms have good views) but for a standard room it was excellent. King size bed, full sized sofa, (which is a king size bed) plenty of draw and storage space, free wi-fi, computer TV (the computer is chargeable and will appear on your bill). A modern bathroom and walk in shower, separate WC, a safe and fridge.
Breakfast and dinner are available in the restaurant and there is a modern bar.
I could not have got this for this price at any other hotel in Manchester Centre.
The one downside is the breakfast, I can't comment on the quality as we did not have one, but at £16.95 each for a cooked breakfast, it's a bit steep as most other hotels charge around £10 (and you can get one at KRO Piccadilly for £7.95).
However, all in all this hotel is good value and an excellent choice for anyone wishing to stay near to the City Centre. Go on line and check it out.

Room Tip: Judging by our room I would think there is not much difference, (apart from the suites)

This hotel only takes 2 mins walk to the Chinatown. The hotel was clean, close to some good restaurants and right in the city center of Manchester. The reception always had only one person but the staff was very nice. We stayed for one night. We parked our car inside a public parking lot, which was at the back of the hotel. The parking was valid for 24 hours. It doesn't like New York, its parking only valid for one time entry. Don't forget to ask the hotel reception staff to get the parking discount voucher. The staff will give the voucher to you when you check out. If you show the voucher in the car park, you will get the discount. It is an indoor parking.
