“Budget Hotel, reasonably priced”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

For the city centre location and price,you can't really complain. Not brilliant by any means, merely average, but the price reflects this. Not impressed with the plastic-pod style bathrooms. We much preferred the Ibis budget at Salford Keys, better value and more modern, cleaner rooms. Still good value if you're on a budget.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. I'm glad you felt the hotel was reasonably priced and in a good location for the city centre.
I'm surprised you felt Salford Quays was the more modern of the two, as we are the new purpose built hotel, showcasing the revised design features and fittings of the Ibis Budget brand.
I hope you will consider us again in future.
Kind regards,
Frederic Dumont

We stayed at the Pollard street Ibis Hotel as part of a visit to Manchester for a family wedding, It was very convenient to Picadiily station, and the welcome was efficient and friendly. We were offered an upgrade to a larger room in a quiet corner of the top floor for a very modest additional price, which we took up, since the City/United derby was playing that weekend! As it was the hotel had a quiet and relaxed atmosphere throughout our stay.
The staff were very welcoming and most helpful and the room was very clean and tidy, The breakfast was more than adequate, very keenly priced and in a pleasant and spotless dining area. All in all, I could not fault this hotel and everyone involved in its management and upkeep seemed to be busy making their customers as comfortable as possible. At the price we were paying I was expecting a 'torpedo tube' set up, but the room was very spacious and the bed comfortable and clean. Just bring a travel kettle if you want a morning cuppa.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and use their facilities again when in Manchester.

Room Tip: Top floor corner room was spacious and had a double and a bunk bed. Probably least noisy but all wer...

I stayed here for the 2nd time this year and I will definitely come back whenever I'm in Manchester! The hotel staff are always really good and helpful for our never ending requests for a mini bus to get us to the M.E.N arena, ordering pizza from their 24 hour service, extra towels & pillows and shampoo! The rooms are clean and spacious, the shower was in the room but is warm and powerful with different coloured lights on the shower head. The hotel is also walking distance from most places such as piccadilly station (about 10 minutes) and about 20 minutes to the arndale shopping centre in the city centre! Overall I look forward to returning here for the 3rd time someday as it really great value for money.

This is one of the Accor Hotel chain's new budget hotels.

They describe their rooms as 'pods', which seems to mean that rather than a separate en suite, the shower and sink are integrated into the bedroom space - although the toilet is in its own cubicle!

The furnishings are spartan but you have everything you need: bed, desk, TV, good lighting, mirrors and space for hanging your clothes. The bed wasn't all that comfortable so I probably wouldn't recommend the hotel for a long stay. But if you are in Manchester overnight for business or clubbing, it would serve its purpose.

I was offered a quiet room, on the top floor so it was away from the noise of the busy road that runs by. Staff also try to ensure the clubbers and the business people are suitably spaced out to minimise possible disturbance, and that courtesy was really appreciated.

On the plus side, a room booked in advance was just pennies over £30 with breakfast. It was also impressively clean and the staff were very friendly. On the down side, the lack of carpet and a single slim duvet doesn't make for a cosy room in a rainy city like Manchester.

Hopefully the hotel will think about addressing that. Then I would have no problem rating this hotel 5-star.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a quiet room as the hotel is on a busy main road.

Many thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review of your stay. I'm very pleased you were happy with your room allocation and you found everything you needed.
The bedding and flooring is standard within all new Ibis Budgets and something beyond my control unfortunately. However I always endeavour to pass on any feedback to the relevant departments.
I'm really glad you felt your overall stay was value for money and hopefully you will consider us again for future visits.

Kind regards,
