I stayed at this hotel as I attended the Radiohead gig at the MEN Arena. For this purpose the hotel was great as the Arena is only two minutes walk away and the hotel is easily spotted as it is large and black. Obviously the location is good for the Manchester Victoria station, but I arrived at Piccadilly which was only around 10-15 minutes walk away, so it's really easy to get to the shopping centre of the city too.
I stayed in a twin room on the first floor and it was clean and comfortable. However, since the building is relatively new I was surprised at the way that some things were designed - for example, there were no plugs by the bedside, which made it harder to charge my phone. As I already had plans I didn't use any of the other facilities of the hotel, although the restaurant menu in my room looked a bit pricey. The air con in the room worked very well and despite being near the road, the room was quiet.
I generally slept well, but unfortunately on my floor there was a large group that decided to charge through the corridors shouting at around 4am, which woke me. I don't know what the hotel can do about raucous guests - but as a lone, female traveller I felt quite intimidated by them. It's a pity as apart from that incident I enjoyed my stay.
Breakfast was included in the room rate that I chose. It was a buffet style breakfast with a large variety of pastries, yoghurts, juices and breads etc alongside the English breakfast options. Although the food was self-serve, tea and coffee was brought to you and the staff were very attentive.
This hotel isn't romantic or special but if you want a reasonably priced base to stay when you're visiting the MEN Arena or shopping this is perfect.
