“good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

Stayed 2 nights on a business trip. Huge apartment with good facilities, making this good value per sq ft. Service was a bit patchy eg room service breakfast failed both mornings. First had bullet hard boiled eggs and cold coffee. After complaining, second had warm poached eggs and toast, hot coffee but warm orange juice and no salt and pepper...attention to detail, please!

Room Tip: Ask for lounge with external view.

The Place is wonderfully situated and is a beautiful building. The staff were great - very welcoming. We stayed in a Delux apartment up in the loft ( 6th floor) and had an amazing ceiling of glass and iron structures. The apartment was huge and just what we needed - comfy beds, comfy sofas , tea, coffee etc. It was amazingly quiet.
However the condition of the apartment let it down somewhat and this would have been a five star rating had i felt that it was completely clean and as equiped as it should have been. Due to the 'loft' space being fairly inaccesible the iron structures were absolutely covered in dust and cobwebs - even the kitchen lights where covered - this was not nice to sit under! ( the rest of the apartment was spotless ) Also the kitchen only had three spoons, limited crockery etc - certainly not enough for four people had we wanted to cook a meal. Some of the crockery in the cupboard was even dirty. We also only had one bathrope ( promised four!) and two pairs of slippers. Not big things i know but we had paid for a delux apartment and these are advertised as part of the deal. Having said all this we did love the apartment and the whole concept and would definately choose to stay here again.

Room Tip: Our delux on the 6th floor was great.

Just got back from staying at this hotel/appartments. The building really is as nice as other reviews suggest. Well appointed, lovely large rooms, and well equipped.
However, sorry about this but i would have given 5 stars had it not been for the noise level coming from the lobby area. I dont know if the windows are tripple glazed but if not perhaps they should be. Im assuming there are appartments which dont face the lobby area which i would imagine would be better though. One other small point is the blinds, particularly the bedroom blinds. They should be blackout blinds. Again, perhaps because our appartment was placed where it was we had a lot of light thrown up from the reception area, also beside each appartment there was a large outside light which unfortunayely was next to the bedroom window. So the room could have done with being a little darker. Unless the lights were knocked off after say 12?? These are just small niggles which, especially in the case of blackout blinds could be easily rectified. But it doesn't detract from the easy access to the hotel via the railway station, and the short walk into the city centre.
I would definately stay here again but would perhaps ask for either a higher room, then hopefully the noise coming from late night revellers, (one night it was 6am) wouldn't be such an issue, or a room not facing the lobby.Also, hopefully if enough people commented, the bedroom blinds at least could be blackout??

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT facing the lobby area, or one higher up so hopefully lobby noise wouldnt travel u...

Just got back from an overnight stay at the Place and what a 'place' it is.
There were 5 of us on a girly weekend to do Christmas Market and watch Wicked .
We were completely 'wowed'by the hotel. The apartment was massive with three of the biggest beds ive ever seen. It was stunning to look at , full of character especially with the beams and brickwork, and contained everything you could possibly need (if you couldnt find what you needed then they brought it up for you)
It was spotlessly clean with 2 bathrooms a fully fitted and equipped kitchen and plenty of tea, coffee and milk.
The only tiny fault we could find was that it was a bit short on teaspoons and mugs but as I said this was rectified easily.
Location wise its about 2mins from picadilly station and 5 mins from shops so absolutely perfect you could easily walk to the palace theatre too. And despite the closeness to everything there was minimum noise at night.
The staff were friendly and helpful and you can leave your luggage until you're ready to check in or go home.
All in all we had a great time and would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Stayed here on Wednesday 23rd November for a business trip and due to stay again on Wednesday 4 December.

It is definitely a unique hotel/apartment. I was allocated room 615 which was huge and had lovely ceiling feature and 3 double beds (I was travelling alone). The apartment was huge and would be great for a family or group. It has everything you would need a good supply of kitchen utensils as well as washing machine and dish washer. I did find the living area a bit open as it had huge windows but I just closed the blinds.

The apartment I was in could have done with some upgrading in places - handles falling off the wardrobe doors and burnt marks on kitchen worktop.

I also used the car park which is very secure.

Overall, staff very welcoming and friendly and recommended.

Everything about this apartment hotel was excellent. Very friendly reception with an upgrade to a suite. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, an enormous lounge with an open plan kitchen [very well equipped with large fridge and freezer, dishwasher, stove top and microwave] and dining area. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the apartment was very clean with nice furniture and comfy beds. Lots of hot water and good water pressure in shower. The location as a visitor is perfect. Just down the ramp from Piccadilly Station and the Metrolink. Free bus shuttle to all over the centre just around the corner. Lots of supermarkets a few minutes walk. I would certainly stay here again.
