Ibis Manchester Centre Portland Street
Ranked #48 of 120 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Great location close to the city centre. The first impression is of a modern slick design without a lot of space and that carries through to the rooms. The ensuite shower room is like a circular pod in the room which gives it a feeling of being a bit institutional. There's not a lot of room to manoeuvre in the pod. But it was clean and the bed was comfortable.
The breakfast area gets filled up very quickly. The choice is adequate.
The service was friendly and efficient. The use of the local car park for a discounted rate is a real boon. Personally, I found the high level of security (having to use keycards to access lifts and to even get into the hotel at night) I found quite off putting. Other Manchester hotels don't impose these measures.

Stayed overnight on Saturday 31st while taking my two girls to see 1 Direction. Apart from the air cooling not working and too few parking spaces under the hotel everything else was absolutely perfect. Ibis know their market and have the design, the service, and the food spot on!

Room Tip: Get directions first as finding anywhere in Manchester at the moment is a nightmare!

Our booking was through lastminute.com, 3 hours before arrival. upon entry we were greeted quickly and politely and had our keycard 2 minutes and one signature later.
the room was clean, having stayed in a lot of travelodges i was surprised by the quality and care that had gone into the bathrooms especially but also the thought that had gone into the layout for the entire room.
our stay was quiet and comfortable.
It was very hot in the room and the "air circulator" only worked for about 5 minutes, but i rang reception and a gentleman brought us a fan within about 5 minutes, and was very polite about it too!
Would definitely recommend for anyone wishing to stay somewhere a little bit nicer than budget.

Room Tip: the rooms on the back are a lot quieter.
