Conveniently located, with friendly staff and nice rooms. Lots of restaurants and shopping venues nearby.
Always a frist choice when staying in Manchester.
Also try the "German Weihnachtsmarkt" during winter time.

We stayed on a friday night and picked the hotel as it was near the university campus ( where we were watching a band)and the shops.
Parking is directly behind the hotel but beware our directions didnt mention the one way system. The reception staff were welcoming, the room was spotless and a good size.
We enjoyed cocktails before we went out and the bar staff were very friendly and helpfull with providing us information regarding taxis, and bars etc. Our room overlooked the car park and we had a good nights sleep in a very large comfortable bed. The buffet breakfast was excellant and the service of extra pots of tea. I would deffinatly recomend this hotel and I would return again.

Room Tip: Probably higher rooms and looking at the car park as front of hotel is a busy main road

Recently visited Manchester for 40th birthday weekend with the girls. Arora hotel could not do enough for us, birthday balloon, card, confetti and prosecco. Perfect! The hotel is really clean with large rooms and lovely spacious bathrooms. Hotel bar is a definite must with great priced cocktails. The staff were very helpful and friendly and made our weekend really special. Thank you so much Arora hotel

Room Tip: Twin rooms have two double beds great for friends sharing.

We had 2 nights here, the beds were the most comfy I have ever slept in (hotels) and we asked for extra pillows and they , too, were very good, good nights sleeps :) everything was good, position great for stay, Sadly , one big down side, we came back to hotel well after 1pm to put our shopping in and have a coffee, the room agent been touched, not even clean cups, and tho I rang housekeeping, who said they'd send someone straight away, we ended up not waiting any longer, going out for a coffee. But on the plus side , requested extra coffee and tea arrived well before the clean cups did. We would stay again and try breakfast and the restaurant , which menu looked very good .

I had begun to despair at finding reasonably priced central Manchester hotels but this was very good for a three day stay and excellent value for money. The bedroom was large, clean and with a good bathroom. Air Conditioning was easy to use and worked well.

The food was excellent. I ate the 3 course dinner for £20 (including a glass of wine, a pint of beer or a soft drink) and it was far above the usual hotel standard. Fresh, well thought through menu and efficient service.

Not a particularly good reception area but in all other respects very good find and a very good price and with an excellent meal

The Arora is located right in the centre of manchester near China Town, around a 10 minute walk from Manchester Oxford road train station. We stayed as a couple in the middle of July on a city break. It's a lovely clean hotel with spacious rooms and very nice breakfasts! The highlight of our stay however was the wonderful Susan on reception, she was so friendly and made us feel like we were regular guests even though it was our first stay, so nice to meet a down to earth receptionist rather than the robotic type we've experienced in other hotels, she even shared a polo mint with me! Thanks Susan, hope to see you again on our next visit to Manchester!! Highly recommended.

Stayed for one night and was very impressed. Hotel looks brand new, although 10 years old. Nice big rooms, excellent reception and service staff. Next to China Town and right in the middle of the city. Will come back.

Room Tip: Go for breakfast and the poached eggs!!!
