We stayed here for a conference in October over 4 nights. The location is good right next to Piccadilly station and about a 10-15min walk to Manchester Central (depending on whether you are wearing heels or not!) It is a lovely converted building with exposed brickwork and the old steel columns add real character. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which 3 of us shared. Yes the layout is a little unusual with a large atrium in the centre and the apartments around the edge, which means that only one bedroom has a window to the outside. The other bedroom and the lounge area have large windows to this atrium area. However we did not find this a problem. There are blinds you can pull down over these large windows and you are generally not spending enough time in the rooms for it to be an issue. Plus there are hardly ever people walking past the window anyway.
All the rooms are spacious and the kitchen is one of the better equipped I have come across in these kind of apartments. The service was excellent, all the staff we came across were very helpful and the daily maid service was fantastic - they even cleared our plates etc away and put the dishwasher on every day. The furnishings in the lounge are not the best you would ever experience, but nothing worse than you would expect in this kind of setup.
The real bonus you get here are the 'hotel' services of a bar and dining area that you do not get in a lot of serviced apartments. We had no problem getting a drink late a night - the person covering the reception desk served us and breakfast was excellent with very good service - our drinks were served to us almost as soon as we sat down every day.
I would definitely recommend especially if you like the benefits of an apartment but would also like some of the benefits of a hotel.
