I've been staying at The Arora for about fifteen years and I love it. It is unpretentious, solidly comfortable, centrally located, efficient, friendly without being obsequious and excellent value for money - in short, everything that the traveller requires. It may not have a swimming pool or luxury spa, but it is a charming hotel which delivers a great night's sleep in a tasteful room where everything works, from the air-conditioning to the power shower. I have stayed all over Manchester in both 4 and 5 star hotels, but The Arora provides the very best value for money without sacrificing quality.

Stayed here with friends and had a lovely time, the rooms were very clean, beds were very comfortable and was well furnished and the air conditioning was very welcome. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay here again. Location was ideal, right in the city centre, couldn't have asked for more.

Stayed here as part of a hen group last weekend and was very impressed with everything about the hotel ! Rooms were spotlessly clean with everything we needed and were a very large size (which was great for 4 girls sharing a room !). Beds were sooooo comfy, and there was very little noise from outside which was surprising given its location! We all slept really well (which wasnt just down to the drinks ;-) )
Staff were so friendly, especially the cleaners who always said hello :-) George on the door was incredibly helpful with luggage and advice on where to go in the city.
We didn't eat in the restaurant but did try the cocktails which were delicious and I would highly recommend going down for at least one ! The bar is very nicely decorated with a great ambience , and again friendly and efficient staff !
The hotel itself is in a perfect location to get to EVERYWHERE in the city centre ! Within a 5 min walk there is the Arndale shopping centre, market street, canal street, deansgate locks, China town and most other places you'd want to visit to be honest :)

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone as the most important things I need from a hotel is cleanliness, efficiency, and a good location and this hotel had it all ! I would also try looking at their own website for prices as I got it cheaper than the other booking websites :-)

Hotel Arora is very conveniently placed in Chinatown, so it's easy to get to most locations in the city centre. The reception staff are very efficient, ehlpful and friendly. Parking is quite reasonable at £16 for 24 hours, just a couple of minutes' walk away. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable.

Would recommend this hotel to couples and business people.

Chose this hotel because of location and reviews on tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed. We stayed there as a family of 4 with older children as we were attending a football match. A lovely building in a very pleasant area in easy walking distance to station, shops and metro. Reception staff were extremely polite and friendly, room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was good and again staff were very friendly and helpful. Our only disappointment was that we only stayed one night. Excellent value and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Stayed here while on a course in the city centre.

Room was very clean, well furnished and had all the extras I would expect. Lighting left a little to be desired, as it was rather gloomy over by the desk. The reception team were friendly, helpful, and well informed.

I would certainly consider staying there again.
