Ibis Manchester Centre Portland Street
Ranked #48 of 120 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed 1 October 2013

I stayed here for a one night stop-over. It is about a 20 minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly train station so quite convenient.
The rooms are a bit strange in that the shower is actually in the room so if you are staying with a friend/someone you're not naked in front of usually then that should be taken into account! The beds are comfortable enough, slightly hard but would have been fine if it hadn't creaked every time I took a deep breath!
The TV's are good and have a wide range of channels to choose from and there is good free WiFi which is fast and reliable.
I didn't have the breakfast but I saw it when I checked out and it looked good.

All in all I would stay here again and it's worth it for the amount it costs.

form to fill in on arrival / check in, unsure why this information isnt available from booking, simple sign off would be adequate. reception area well kept, halls of hotel could do with upgrade, bedrooms are clean and modern, main issue was with air conditioning, could only blow heat, unable to act as a cooling system. lots of noise coming from busy street below so opening window not an option when sleeping. no complaints with toilet or bed. breakfast in the morning was standard.

The worst run hotel I have stayed at anywhere in the world. Staff ratio of experienced to trainees was way out of whack! Some staff couldn't even pour a beer. The dining area felt like it had the heater turned up to maximum and it was uncomfortable when having breakfast. It was like they didn't want you to be relaxed and enjoy your food.

Room Tip: Stay at the Novotel next door

Stayed here before but this was first time since Ibis started free WiFi but its not as good as it seems only ok for emails and basic browsing at a very slow speed to do any thing more like watching vidios you need to spend 3 pounds every 24 hours and that speed could be a lot better,apart from that the hotel provides what it promises at a reasonable price. I came in to contact with the two managers who could not have been more helpful and they promised to take up the matter of the WiFi.Just a couple of points on breakfast the toaster did not toast in one pass and over toasted if put through again also one one morning the food was on the cold side not made any better by the plates being stone cold

I like the Ibis chain and find the rooms simple and functional. It all looks a bit like IKEA and the beds were very comfortable. The location on Portland Street is convenient to Oxford St train Station and Piccadilly too. The breakfast is not particularly tempting, a bit over priced and you can find better in the bakery down the street. We had no wifi in our rooms and even had trouble getting it to work for us while sitting in the lobby.

Thank you very much for your kind review, and I am glad you have enjoyed your stay in ibis Manchester Portland Street. I am very happy you had the chance to experience such a good night sleep due to our new innovative bedding designed by the ibis Research Dept.

However, I was very dissapointed to read that you experienced issues to connect to our Wi-Fi. I have instructed our Maintenance Engineer to check the connectivity in all rooms.
