“Good central location”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

This new Holiday Inn Express is central located and easy to walk to the restaurants, markets and shops. Enjoyed the Christmas Markets throughout the city. Good standard bedrooms and good views over the city and surrounding hills. Self-service breakfast and late night bar.

Room Tip: All rooms offered by Holiday In Express are of equal quality.

We stayed here for two nights in January and it was faultless. As regulars in Manchester we have a wide frame of reference for local hotels and, in terms of value for money, this hotel is right up there.

Location - perfect for the Northern Quarter, The Arndale, Market Street etc etc. Everywhere is walkable and there's lots of cheap parking close by.

Staff - friendly, welcoming , helpful and seem to genuinely want you to enjoy your stay.

Rooms - clean, modern and have everything you need. We asked for one at the back of the hotel which gave us floor to ceiling views out over the city.

General - unlike many other hotels, wifi is free everywhere (including rooms which also have tea and coffee facilities) and a good, full breakfast is included in the rate.

All in all, this was a great stay aided by this hotel providing the perfect base.

Couldn't fault this hotel,clean friendly staff we even checked in at 12.30.Rooms are spacious,light and very well set out. Alright the views are probably not the best, but situated in the heart of the city.Brilliant location. Breakfast buffet style but you would definitely find something to eat. but beware it closes dead on time. Would recommend to anyone and definitely go back.

I'm not sure how IHG choose their staff in the Crowne Plaza or other Holiday Inn Express locations, but we've never have a bad stay in any of the locations. I could praise each aspect of the stay at the MEN, or simply say that it's as great as the HIE Oxford Road.

It's five minutes walk from the station and has a supermarket just outside the front door. If you are a tourist, business traveller or just seeking a refuge after a party night - this will be perfect for you!

Reviewed 16 December 2013

Stayed here after going to a concert at the nearby arena. This is a lovely modern hotel although we had a room overlooking the building site. I wasn't impressed being woken up at 8.00am to the sounds on hamering and drilling. The room was spacious and very clean, bathroom was great with a huge walk-in shower. Breakfast was complimentary which was a bonus. Staff were polite and nothing was to much trouble.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms above the main entrance side of the hotel, which overlooks the building work!
