“Great location!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Just stayed in this hotel Saturday 14th June 2014. The rooms were lovely and clean but a little on the small size (compact) you had a fan in our room but still very warm,could of done with air con. On arrival check in was quick and the staff friendly, polite and approachable. The location was brilliant very close to all the best bits about Manchester ( Northern quarter, canal street). The breakfast was lovely and plenty to choose from. We booked in March and only paid £66 !!! We will definitely be returning for our next visit to Manchester.

We stayed here for one night just looking for a basic room to sleep in. The location of the hotel is excellent being very close to the station and city centre, the room was small but very clean and well equipped and had everything we needed. This is a great place to stay on a budget as a base to explore Manchester.

We stayed at the Days hotel on the 28th-30th May. We found the hotel very central for Piccadilly railway station and the city. The rooms were compact but had everything you needed. The staff were very polite and helpful. If I visit Manchester again I would definitely stay in this hotel.

I have been staying in this hotel on a weekly basis for the last 12 months or so. All that I can say is that they looked after me and made my visits feel like a home from home, with all staff being friendly and knowing who I was, by name.

the booking of rooms was simple in that i had my 6 month block booking, but was able to change this easily either by phone or email with a prompt reply to all my requests.

the rooms themselves are what you would expect for this standard of hotel and were always clean and well presented.Being in the City Centre were surprsingly quiet which ensured a good nights sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the inner court yard...very quiet

If you are visiting Manchester on a budget, this is a great hotel. Cheap, clean, relatively comfortable. Don't expect a view or palatial suites for the price you pay, but it is as good if not better than many equally priced hotels. Another bonus is that it is 5 minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly station.

The layout is bizarre, with corridors stretching out in seemingly random directions. Room 309 is opposite room 329, for example, and it is handy to use the force when trying to locate the reasonably priced for a hotel, but not for Manchester, bar. Of course, once the very polite check-in staff have handed you your key, you're on your own, so be prepared to explore like a Jodi.

What lets the hotel down is breakfast, or rather, breakfast service. Like most hotels, a chunk of their profit comes from charging a bit too much for breakfast. However, with rooms at under £50, another tenner is not too bad. I was particularly interested, as it offered veggie alternatives if I wanted them. I'm not completely veggie, but I do often go for that option as otherwise I stuff myself silly when presented with a buffet.

On entering the buffet breakfast room, staff who clearly didn't want to be up that early ushered me to a table and I ordered, as you must, a couple of veggie sausages. After getting and eating the rest of my breakfast there was no sign of them. I got a coffee refill and reminded the waitress who apologised and said she'd look into it. Coffee, orange juice, small pain au chocolat, my plates cleared away, and 20 minutes later still no sausage. By this point I was full, and decided to go back to my room. When the breakfast menu says 'have it your way' it should add 'if we remember'.

But all in all, cheap, clean, polite, and in a good position. But skip breakfast; there are better, cheaper cafes down the road, inuding veggie ones!
