Ibis Manchester Centre Portland Street
Ranked #48 of 120 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed 29 July 2014

The hotel is in a good location but to be honest it is like staying in halls of residence at uni. The corridors are grim and the rooms are ok but simple. Our biggest complaint was the noise in the night from drunk people running up and down the corridors screaming and nothing got done about it. This led to pretty much no sleep. The staff on the desk on arrival were great but that was about all. I won't be going back especially not for £79!

Room Tip: Don't stay there if you want a good night's sleep.

Thank you for taking the time to write your comments.
I am really sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay due to other inconsiderate noisy guests. During busy nights, we do have 2 Team members on duty. They do regular walks around the corridors to stop any high level of noise coming from people returning back late at night. I am sorry that this wasn't sufficient during your stay. Please note that if such issues happen, do not hesitate to contact Reception which is open 24 hours. A member of the Team will be happy to help as quickly as possible following our 15' guarantee brand standard.
We hope you will give us another chance and to welcome you again in the future.
Regards
Frederic Dumont
General Manager

My family and I travelled up for my graduation and I rang beforehand to ask if we could check in early as my 88yr old grandmother would struggle with the 3hour journey and no chance to rest before the event. The staff were fantastic, very polite and helpful. They allowed us early check in and even got our party rooms next to each other Our rooms were great, no noise inspite of the reviews of noise in rooms at the front of the building. Easy solution: air con on, window shut. Can not praise this conveniently located hotel for price and staff. It's basic, but that's all you need. The rooms are plenty big enough and are perfect for location to Chinatown, Oxford road station, Canal street and other areas of interest. 2 blocks down Oxford road there's a carpark that charges £15 for 24hours! Great value and no hassle. Would stay here again and recommend it to anyone venturing up to Manchester

Strayed here for one night. Hotel is in a great location being very close to the centre of Manchester. This is a clean, no frills hotel and with polite staff. The street noise was fairly loud, but it is worth considering if you want a reliable and uniform hotel.

Thank you very much for posting your comments.
I’m glad you enjoyed your visit in Manchester.
I am sorry to hear that you found the street noise too loud. We do have double glazing windows to minimize the noise. For your next visit, I would advise you to request a room facing the back of the hotel which you could find less noisy.
We look forward to welcoming you back.

Excellent, centrally located for all Manchester city sites. The rooms are the usual Ibis set out and are very clean. Appreciated the air conditioning. There is a car park to the rear of the hotel and the hotel does a deal on the price. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lots of restaurants nearby especially china town. Ours was a mid week stay so the hotel at night was nice and quiet, don't know about week ends though. Would definitely recommend this hotel for short breaks.

Good central spot for the stag party. Rooms were clean, we had twin rooms, plenty space, showeroom/toilet was clean, tv had maany channels. Staff at the reception were very good and patient dealing with 10 lads checking in under 1 booking and arranging rooms etc.

Didnt have the breakfast because it was a bit expensive approx £10, but there was a decent place up the street when you head left out the door, up the street about 2 blocks and turn left. Place on the left hand side of the street with 2 shrubs in pots out front, that was £5 for full english, plenty extra toast and free tea or coffee if you ask for it when you order it (cant remember the name of the place though).

The residents bar was poor, you could stay in the reception for as long as you wanted but the bar at reception closes early! the beer there wasnt that good but at 3-4am it was ok!

There were loads of cross dressers staying at the hotel, they were funny enough!

We chose to stay at this hotel as they allow pets which is a must for us. The rooms are well laid out with a kingsize bed and a pod like area, where the toilet and shower are located. As we stayed in July and the weather was good the air con was essential and kept our room cool. Our room was ready early which was a bonus a I only expected to leave the luggage when we arrived. Will stay here again friendly staff and good value.
