A very pleasant hotel in a very vibrant part of Manchester. We booked a balcony room for ourselves and a king room for our daughter . The King room was roomy and tasteful and whilst the balcony room was a bit smaller I'd recommend it highly as the balcony was cleverly done and a very pleasant place to sit on a balmy evening. There's always the possibility of noise in such a vibrant part of town but we were never bothered by it and once all the doors were shut it was perfectly fine.
Staff were extremely helpful and the hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from Piccadilly Station. If you want to get away from the big corporate hotels you usually get in big cities then this should do the trick .
