Thank you for your review AnuRo. We are very sorry to learn that you were unhappy with your room. Unfortunately, not all of our hotels have air conditioning, however a number of fans are available from reception on a first come first serve basis. Furthermore, our staff are required to ensure that all areas of the hotel remain clean and smell free so it is regrettable to learn of the smells you encountered during your stay. Regrettably, it is also not always possible to fully reduce the noise that our guests might experience in their room. However, we make every effort to minimise the noise that might be heard from outside the hotel by having insulated walls and double glazed windows. We would like to provide a resolution for the issues you have raised. Please could you visit our website and select the Contact Us button to provide us with more details and when doing so please specify you have left a TripAdvisor review.

We stayed for 3 nights, and had a brilliant time in Manchester.The room was large,modern and very clean,with everything you would expect.The bed was amazing! I have never slept in such comfort. The only fault we had was the traffic noise.Our room was at the front facing a very busy road and because of the hot weather,we had to leave the windows open,which meant we could hear the traffic most of the night.

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor so maybe a room higher up or facing the side,cverlooking the canal.

Pleasant hotel close to a wide selection of bars and entertainment all within easy walking distance. Hotel itself had a very good bar and a good selection of food was on offer but regrettably didn't try but may do on my next visit.

Overall not a disastrous stay but I've stayed in better travelodge hotels!

+ perfect location - close to city centre, Transport, restaurants and bars
+ decent breakfast
+ decent size room
+ friendly reception staff

- room was way too hot. Asked for a fan and was given this by the reception staff.
- view was of car park.. Didn't mind this too much but it did get noisy
- although room was clean, the bathroom floor could have done with a clean

Overall nice stay. Staff were nice, room was nice and clean. I had a recently refurbished room, and the new matress was very impressive. The location is also excellent, just of Deansgate.

The only downside to this hotel is the carpark. I personally didnt have an issue, as i luckily arrived and left when it was relatively empty, however, I witnessed someone trying to get into the car park for about 10 minutes. As it is below road level, there are pillars all over the place, and it's already tiny to begin with. if the car park is busy (unless you drive a motorbike) you might struggle.

Overall impressed, and would stay again if I was in the area

Room Tip: Ask for as high a floor as possible, and request the side looking over the river. Get a good view of...

Excellent location, coupe of minutes walk to arndale shopping centre. Very friendly staff. Rooms are massive. Breakfast was nice, just could do with speeding up the topping up of the buffet items.The lady topping up was very apologetic and friendly. Sausages were excellent quality. Quite lot of noise outside our hotel from road and people but nothing I wouldn't expect from a city center hotel

Good location for Central Manchester, staff were friendly, room was clean, bed was really comfy which after a long day was what i needed!! Breakfast was as expected for a Travelodge Hotel, decent enough to pay for again but i wouldnt choose to eat there given an option.

The one thing to look out for is the outside noise, if you are overlooking the inside square/parking area there were bins and wagons making a racket from as early as 7am, not helpful when your room is quite warm and you need the fresh air.

Overall i would stay here again for an overnight trip.
