I'm staying here until Thursday, arrived today and I love the place. 3 nights for under £300 and I'm very impressed so far. Kristian at reception had assisted me in advance via email and was really helpful. The welcome / check in was excellent. I'm staying on the 10th floor in suite 65 and although my view isn't picturesque from...

We stay here for my mother-in-laws 60th. On arrival we had been upgraded for free to a penthouse suite and found they had decorated the door with a happy birthday banner, and left balloons and a card inside - lovely touch. The room was spectacular as were the views of manchester. The stereo speaker allowed us to play music from...

Booked for a night away for my partners birthday. We were called the night before and offered a free upgrade to a two bed family apartment! Obviously we accepted.

Really impressed at the Light Aparthotel - our room was upgraded upon arrival which was a nice touch. Apartment was spacious, clean and homely, and the complementary breakfast was delicious. We had a very peaceful sleep on the 11th floor, and the staff were all lovely. Couldn't fault anything about our stay, would recommend the Light Aparthotel for anyone visiting...

My wife and i decided to go to Manchester for a random night out. We found this place on a late bookings app and it was brilliant. Great location and great value for money. Only issue is that there was very little hot water. something to fix!
