“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

Nice hotel, very clean and reasonable sized rooms with comfortable beds. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and value for money like everything in this Ibis Hotel. Location is central and everything is within walking distance, City Centre, University, Station, restaurants, bars etc. A taxi from the airport is between 20-30£ depending on traffic. For a short stay in Manchester we clearly recommend this hotel.

Despite being on the 7th floor, the noise from below (with our windows shut) kept us awake most of the night. Bed wasn't very comfortable either. We had breakfast the following morning and the coffee machine wasn't working properly, the orange juice machine had run out of juice and had not been replaced and we had to wait for cutlery. The food was pretty poor in my opinion as well.
Staff were helpful and friendly on a positive note. Probably wouldn't stay again.

We stayed while watching a band, good location near to Piccadilly or Oxford Road, very cheap parking if required, and astonishingly quiet for a city centre hotel. Room was basic, but clean, apart from a big stain on the cushion on one of the seating areas. The bed was ok, but the staff brought us extra pillows when requested. Bathroom was big enough and lots of hot water in the shower. Simple check-in, 24 hour food and drinks, and we only paid £42 so it was a bargain. Great for a stopover.

First time Ibis,in a large group over the rugby weekend mostly couples. several of us noticed bad smells coming from the bathrooms, good job we werent in the rooms that long as the smell was bad, we thought ours was the only one till we talked to the others. room very basic but that's what you get at budget hotels. didnt like how the breakfast room was immediately in front of the lifts so decided not to eat there.service not very good at bar or reception it was like we were bothering them for being there.they have a nice bar but proper glasses for the beers would have been better and not that expensive either. i think they try too much to make the staff look 4 star to hide the cheapness of everything else. wont be going back here and it has put me off ibis hotels full stop.use premier, ramada, novotel often- much better

Room Tip: check the room when you check in for bad smells

Very warm welcome from staff, hotel is very basic but clean and comfortable. Seems expensive but maybe just Manchester centre prices. Breakfast was quite poor considering it was so simple. Keep away from the scrambled eggs....
