The Place Apartment Hotel is located 5 minutes walk from Piccadilly main line station and also has secure parking facilities.
We stayed there for a function. The function room was great - the food was wonderful and the service was excellent with very friendly staff.
The apartment/rooms surround a very spacious and relaxing atrium and the whole aspect of the place was perfect. The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed - 2 bedrooms (one en-suite and one with a separate bathroom), fully equipped galley kitchen (w/machine. d/washer, freezer, fridge etc) & a sitting room.
Breakfasts were excellent value with a varied hot & cold buffet but with an a la carte menu too. Again staff were very friendly and obliging. Reception staff again were friendly and efficient. There is also a gym but didn't use it.
Great place to stay, we'll certainly go there again!

We searched for a place to stay close to train travel on a trip through England, and The Place couldn't be closer to Picadilly station. After seeing the pictures of the exposed brick and spacious accommodations, I have to say the apartment was even better than expected. When (not if) we return to Manchester (for United's 25th title, maybe?), we will stay here, and will be sending all our friends as well. Bar was smaller but well apportioned.

Booked this hotel after reading reviews on tripadvisor wanting somewhere to have a few days away with our brother and sister-in-law..
The rooms/apartments are wonderful big, very clean wonderful to have a sitting room and a kitchen set apart from the bedrooms.
The staff are very welcoming and helpful, especially Lauren on reception and Rob who served us with food. Breakfast was excellent as well as the lunch we had.
The Place has a very relaxed friendly feel but is quietly efficient.
I have stayed in many hotels around the world and was very impressed to have this great hotel nearly on our doorstep.
I highly recommend this hotel it's setting is good just a few hundred yards away from Piccadilly station.

I had the experience of staying at the Place with my daughter sister and neice. We were there to see Beyonce.............Our overall stay was fabulous. We were so impressed with the layout, the space, the decor and the fact that care had been taken to ensure that all the customers needs had been catered for, down to something as simple as providing, tea coffee and milk. The service at reception was very accomodating, we arrived an hour earlier than the normal check in, and this was not a problem, we were given our apartment straight away which gave us the opportunity to freshen up prior to going for a pre booked meal before the Concert.............Would we stay there again? You bet.........................

We had booked a deluxe double apartment as were in Manchester for beyonce! Firstly the location is excellent..literally a 2 minute walk from Piccadilly station! When we arrived the girl at reception was very friendly and checked us in. We had also requested at 12pm check out which they accommodated. We went up to our room only to walk in on a bunch of guys...confusion occurred! They had sent us to a room people were already in! However when we went back they quickly rectified this and upgraded us to a penthouse! We really didn't mind the mistake when it was fixed so effectively!

The rooms themselves are spacious, nicely decorated and have all the necessary facilities. There is the expected 'wear and tear' and some things looked a little distressed but this is to be expected with any apartments.

The penthouse was lovely and also has a rooftop balcony which would have been fabulous had it been sunny.

When we came in at 2am our other friend wasn't with us and had the room key so the fact it is a 24 hour reception is also very helpful as the guy was able to give us a replacement key.

I would definitely recommend these apartments and would definitely stay again!

We held our wedding reception at The Place in April 2013 and from our first meeting with Jade, the service that we experienced was outstanding. We were organising our wedding from abroad and Jade's prompt and comprehensive replies to emails and willingness to meet when we were in Manchester made the organisation process much smoother!

Several of our (foreign) wedding guests booked apartments in The Place too and the staff were very accommodating of our many awkward requests, providing extra glasses, crockery and cutlery for family reunions. Even when I (the groom) caught Jade 2 days before the wedding in the lobby on her way home, she was happy to stop and chat with a smile.

The day went exactly to plan thanks to Jade and Alfie's help and all our guests agreed that the food was excellent. We chose The Place for its character and fantastic location which made logistics easier, and everyone was impressed by the great architecture inside. The wedding package which we booked was very flexible too which was exactly what we were looking for.

We also stayed in one of the penthouse suites on the top floor and were delighted to find a thoughtful surprise in the room on the wedding night. The views from the penthouses are really amazing too. The other apartments that our family stayed in were also great and the couple of maintenance issues that they reported were dealt with very promptly.

Breakfast the next morning was also very good and good value, and when we had a query over our bill on check-out it was well-managed by the reception staff.

The overall experience was just perfect and we cannot recommend The Place highly enough as a wedding venue or as a place to stay in Manchester. The staff, and Jade in particular, really made our wedding a day to remember in this special venue. Thank you!

Room Tip: If you can push your budget, the views and comfort of the penthouses are well worth it!

4 of us booked to stay here as we wanted somewhere cheap, nice and near the centre of Manchester. We first looked at staying at a travel inn or premier inn but then came across The Place- and are we glad we did!! It was cheaper and you literally have an apartment to yourself. We arrived to what looked like an old mill house, as we entered the staff were friendly and first impressions of the decoration and interior was impressive- we were really excited to get to our room.

As we approached our room the entrance was impressive it was like being on holiday- with fountains inside it was really cool. As we opened the tall door to our apartment we couldn't believe it! We ran straight in very excited- each room was more impressive then the next- SO BIG!

2 double bedrooms, huge living room, contemporary kitchen and 2 bathrooms including an en suite. We didn't want to leave!

So pleased with the stay. If your looking for a long weekend or a quick getways this is perfect and the location is amazing.. right next to Piccadilly station.

They provided us with parking- which you do have to pay which is a bit annoying but worth it as it is secure underground parking in which they let us leave our car there the next day so we could venture into manchester.

Room Tip: We stayed in number 14- AMAZING and in the corner of the layout.
