Decent hotel stay for the price. Convenient location for the centre of Manchester. Room on the smaller side with a "Pod" bathroom. Nice shower, comfortable bed. Pillows were hard for my liking and noise from main road outside our room. Earplugs are provided though. We also had the breakfast which was varied, not enough room as everyone came together.

Nice modern room, on the small side; cabin bathroom, very clean. Nice friendly and helpful staff, great location, limited food menu but plenty of restaurants nearby. Great varied breakfast though. Only issue was dirty plates left on trays outside of a room all night making a corridor smell of ripe onions but the guest probably didn't tell anyone it was...

Excellent location for the centre of Manchester, walking distance of museums and art gallery and the tram stop in St Peter's square was just around the corner. Double bedroom was clean and tidy and the bed comfy. We loved the shower as the shower head lit up! We didn't have breakfast but there are plenty of places nearby to find...

Many thanks for posting your comments after your recent stay. I'm pleased to hear you liked our modern facilities, especially the "disco" shower. I'm also very happy that our city centre location was convenient for your visit. It is such an asset to be so well situated in the heart of Manchester, just a few steps away from all must-see...

I stay in Manchester for work weekly and every now and then the Ibis is the best value. It's pretty close to Piccadilly Station (10 mins walk max) and in the middle of the hubbub of town, so it's pretty convenient if you're on foot. Check in is pretty quick, although the reception staff don't seem to be particularly jolly...

My boyfriend and I, we stayed at this hotel on 12th of January, just for a night but we wish we had stayed longer. First of all, I want to thank the lady working at the reception, as I accidentally booked a twin room rather than double. It was sorted within the seconds after request. The room was spotlessly clean,...

Stayed here for two nights on business - my preferred hotel had hiked its rates beyond the budget! Close to NCP Sackville Street car park and a short walk from Deansgate. The reception area, bar and dining area are stark, Spartan and brightly lit - not the place for a lengthy evening meal. The menu is very very limited and...

We've just spent a night at the Ibis after attending a show at the arena. It's location is perfect for shopping, nothing is more than a 10 minute walk away. Plenty of eateries near by open late. The reception reminds me of an apple shop - very informal but that doesn't take away from the fact it's a lovely lobby....
