We were a party of 4 in a 2 bedroom apartment above a similar suite. Unfortunately below us were a party of 6 or so (in a 2 bed apt) and they had music on VERY LOUDLY constantly throughout the night until approx 5 am. During this time reception was notified on several occasions but very unhelpful. The ppl below...

We booked a two bedroom apartment, the main bedroom had an ensuite which was great we had separate areas to get ready. Nice modern kitchen area, open plan with lounge. Large windows overlooking the canal. Very spacious and nice to have kitchen facilities. Only stopped for one night but definitely book again. Staff were average, not much customer service. A...

I’d like to start with some of the main issues for writing what should have been a reasonable review. This is only the second review I’ve ever done online however I spend around 150days a year in hotels and serviced apartments, sometime more. I’d booked very late via a booking agent and did receive what should have been quite a...

We have a 2 room apartment, for 2 nights for 222 USD. The apartment was very clean, functional well equipped kitchen. Very good and efficient heating in all rooms and bathroom. Location is very convenient. Facing the Arandal shopping center, 5 minutes walking from Market street, from Piccadilly gardens etc. Excellent transportation connection. WiFi is free but it was not...

Great size rooms, shame about there only being one lift as it can take some time getting to and from your room. Would definitely recommend a stay here. We used a euro car park to the rear a lot cheaper than the one on site!

I spent one night at this place and I cannot describe what happened there. I have been told that legal action I'll be taken if I state the facts of what happened on this website as apparently that's me threatening. Let's just say there are unsavoury people here and they were in the staff areas yet the hotel is saying...

We stayed here for the christmas markets, the location was brilliant walking distance to pretty much everything really. Upon entering you automatically think this is nice & then the cracks begin to appear literally!! There was a strange smell upon entering to the living area, the floor was uneven which was covered by a rug, it's in a real need...

Stopped for 1 night with the family. Literally 2 mins from Deansgate train station. Very small foyer and checking in at 3, but you can drop off your bags so you can enjoy Manchester. 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, kitchen diner with TV. More spacious than a Premier Inn particularly when you have kids. A great price. Would use again.

These apartments were a great find, we stayed with friends the night before our wedding and the fact that we could all be together in a spacious apartment after a night out was great. They are fairly clean, and have everything you could need, I would definitely recommend a stay here if there are a few of you.
