From Manchester Airport to Hotel and to Old Trafford

I am touching down Manchester Airport in the morning from Paris.

I am looking at hotels near to the Old Trafford stadium, so i presume I will be taking a cab from airport about 20 pounds 20-30mins.

However I found out this hotel (IBIS Manchester City Centre) at

96 Portland Street, Manchester, M1 4QX United Kingdom

How much would it be from airport to this hotel? and how do i travel from this hotel to Old trafford stadium? i want to avoid taking cab.

I am also confused with Metro and national rail

From Portland Street walk to Oxford Road and turn right until you get to St Peters Square. From there get the a Altrincham tram. Get off at old trafford. This stops at the Old Trafford cricket ground. Its a short walk to Old Trafford football ground from there, around 5-10 mins. Tickets for the tram can be bought on the platform.

Taxi from airport to city centre would be about £30- £40. You can get a train from airport to City centre for a few pounds only. They are quite frequent and only takes about 25 minutes. You can get a train from the airport to oxford road station in the city centre, which is near to the Ibis on Portland street.

Thank you for the reply. APpreciate.

Anyway I have reserved a hotel "Chesters Hotel & Restaurant" at 730 Chester Road Manchester, M32 0RS United Kingdom. which is just 2 mins walk away from Old Trafford Stadium.

I must depart from Paris early morning via budget airline and arrive manchester airport on 24th July. I have booked Manchester Museum tour at 3pm. Am i going to make it for the tour?

I am now worrying what time should my flight be at Paris.

what actual time are you due to arrive in Manchester?

It can take 20-30 minutes in a cab to the ground from the airport

If you leave Paris early in the morning then the flight won't be any longer than 1hr10 or something like that. When you get to the airport follow signs to the train station, get a train to Manchester Picadilly. Form there follow signs in the station to Metrolink 'tram' which is located in the station below the train platforms. Form here as suggested, get a tram to Altringham and get off at Old Trafford. The ground is a 5 mins walk from there and your hotel not much further. The journey will take you about 45 mins (including waiting for trains/trams) and will cost no more than £5. If you arrive at Manchester airport anytime before 12.30 do that, if you arrive later then maybe get the cab to be sure on time.

If your flight lands at 10am at Manchester airport you will have no problems in getting to your hotel for 2pm and then to Old trafford for your tour at 3pm. In fact you will probably have time to spare, even using public transport.
