“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

Absolutely stunning place. Gorgeous venue with original brickwork walls and iron girders throughout. Modern, bright and with great facilities, ie. gym, reception and bar. Plus large conference rooms (not used) but looked great for wedding and conferences. Our apartment had 2 great sized bedrooms (one ensuite) + dining/lounge/kitchen area and one other bathroom and a great big hall. Lovely fluffy towels provided with shower gel, shampoo, soap and moisturiser. Bathrobes for all 4 of us. Lovely crisp white bedlinen. Furnished beautifully throughout. Even had milk in the fridge, teabags, coffee and sugar in canisters - then found dishcloth, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets - then tablets for the washing machine/dryer too. Better than anything I have stayed in!! Centrally located right near the main Manchester Piccadilly Station, yet a stonesthrow from shopping centre and bars/restaurants. Fabulous, will definitely return!!

Room Tip: Our friends had the penthouse and it was fab if you can afford!

We booked here while trying to escape from the Blue Rainbow Aparthotel.
So happy that we did. The Place is most definitely THE Place.
We stayed in a two bedroom deluxe apartment which truly is spacious. The living space is beautiful, open plan with family friendly furniture.
The bedrooms are just beautiful, spacious and comfortable at the same time. Amenities are amazing.
Staff are just wonderful. The reception staff, housekeeping and maintenance were all wonderful during our stay.
Location is perfect. Minutes from Piccadilly Station, Gardens and the main shopping area.

We were so happy that have booked to go back.

Little one keeps asking when we can go back to the hotel where we can play hide and seek.

Love it!

Room Tip: If you have kids the deluxe two bed rooms are brilliant. Couples would enjoy the penthouse.

Stayed here a few years ago for me mates wedding so decided to stay here again as it was ace. Top rooms, friendly staff, cheap & central, right next to the train station. The rooms are more of an apartment & in the morning we just went & got food from the spar and cooked breakfast ourselves. 4 of us shared an apartment but you could fit more if you wanted. Top night out in Manny, top hotel.

Room Tip: try laterooms, top deals there.

Thank you for your great review. Why not try our unlimited breakfast for £8.95 each next time to save on the trips to the Spar.

Great checkin- the lady at check-in was great, friendly and helpful. The apartment well equipped for a couple of days, high quality linen and towels. The Bedrooms are great as it is a converted industrial building. Great central location, would use again.

First time staying at the The Place Apartment hotel but would definitely go back. Stayed with my partner on 16th July and we had a one bedroom apartment on the 5th floor.
An excellent place to stop in the City Centre with a bit of twist, as an old converted warehouse which they have kept the old girders and brick work in place which makes it totally original. I thought was a really reasonable price for a city centre stay in a 4 star hotel. Location was excellent. 5 min walk to Piccadilly gardens and 15 min walk to MEN arena which suited as stopped in town to see Rihanna at the MEN arena. Although next to Piccadilly station, must say I didn't not really notice the noise of the trains. Parking onsite, with a charge of £9 and we was able to leave the car there for a few hours after we checked out, which really helped us as had a little more shopping to do. Rooms had everything you would need and even down to the little touches such a fan (as went during the hot spell) and milk in the fridge which I thought was a really nice extra touch.

Would definitely re-visit when back in Manchester!

First time staying at The Place but probably not the last. Really good apartments in a very convenient location, a minutes walk from Piccadilly station and a few minutes from all the city centre amenities. Apartments are very spacious - we had a 2 bedroom and it has bags of space including 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchen and hallway. Free wi-fi works well, lots of kit in the kitchen. Only downside was that there is no air-con and it was a very hot couple of nights. Secured parking is very good although costs quite a lot. restaurant and bar in the foyer area which, although we didn't get around to sampling, looked good.

After a shaky start at check in when I was not very impressed with welcome at all our visit to Manchester got better. Front desk staff certainly need some customer service ups killing in human resources management skills and courtesy. I certainly could not fault the staff in the dining room for breakfast headed by the fabulous and extremely welcoming Darlene what a gem she is to the place apartments!!! After three separate calls to maintenance in regards to our drier in room we still managed to have wet clothes maintenance personnel certainly need some skills and personality! The cleaning lady was full of smiles and willing to assist us more than front desk staff!!! The lovely Girl front desk with gorgeous dark curly hair always smiled and the blonde girl who cut her finger was also helpful but they would be the only two!!I would stay here again given the great rooms despite the problems as it is most central to our needs in Manchester.

Room Tip: Apartment was very spacious!!!

Thank you for your kind review I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and have passed on your comments to Darlene. I have spoken to my reception manager regarding the service you received and as it fell short of our normally high standards, retraining will now take place to remedy this.
