Chose this hotel based on price and have never had bad experience with Ibis. Ibis offer excellent value for money, our room was lovely, very modern with a big bed and roomy shower. Perfect hotel for a night out in Manchester city Centre!

This was our second stay at Ibis Portland Street. We had liked it for its location and no-frills room. However this time we're sorry to say it hasn't lived up to our expectations, particularly on the day of checkout. We were disturbed by the maid knocking on our door at a little past 10 in the morning saying she wanted to clean the room. After telling her we weren't due to check out until noon, she insisted to return every 15 minutes to check on us. Whether this is an indication of a lack of training or the hotel's way of making sure we leave our rooms early is beyond me. Given its superb vicinity to the city centre and National Express station I would still recommend this to a budget-conscious traveller, but I would urge the hotel to make sure this doesn't happen again.

My brother and i stayed in this hotel for 2 nights while attending a gig in the M.E.N. The hotel is well placed in the city centre, a short walk from Piccadilly Rail station and close to bars, shops, restaurants and everything else you would need.

The room was adequate with a smallish bathroom but suited our needs and was quiet even though it faced the main road. The staff were friendly and helpful whenever we encountered them. After the gig, we sat in the lounge having a few drinks and eating the mountain of food the staff cooked for us.

Overall, we had a pleasant stay and would have no hesitation in staying again in the future.

Perfect for visiting the city centre, great location and usual Ibis branding. Clean rooms, resonable food and decent selection of tv channels. Not a place to stay if you want to spend a lot of time in your room but then that isn't what it's designed for!

This is a budget city centre hotel. The rooms and beds are small but functional. The bathroom is a plastic cubicle built into the side of the bedroom. So don't come here for luxury.
Saying that the location is excellent, the hotel is well looked after and the staff were considerate and helpful. Which is a serious bonus considering my experience in the Best Western Hotel across the road - see my other review.
There were stag and hen parties in residence when I stayed there, I saw them in the bar area, but couldn't here any disturbance in my room! So a quiet place to stay in the city centre.

Stayed here for 5 nights in May just after Man Utd won the league. Obviously there were still some guests staying there as a few doors along was a loud party going on and, for some reason, eaten up chicken wings on the floor next to my door. This put me off at first and I thought I would see what happens before requesting a room change. No worries - this was early evening and later when I went to bed not a sound. The rest of the stay was fine. Only really used the place for a room so no idea about the bar or food. There was an OK chinese all you can eat buffet for just a few pounds per person over the road and down the road was a very good Wetherspoons with excellent (and very cheap) real ale and good pub grub. All in all - a good location close to the Arndale, pubs, restaurants and bars
