I didnt want to spend a lot of money to put my head down for a few hours - I had been to the Races at Aintree on a Thursday and needed to be in Manchester for work at 9am on the Friday morning :-(
I paid £50 for a clean room with fairly modern, if basic amenities. The room was on the first floor at the back of the hotel ...so it back onto a small alley way.
6am i was woken to a rubbish wagon collecting bottles! To be fair this is standard in Manchester - its happened to me at the Arora on Princess Street ---- thats they price you pay for a central location!
If I was a tourist - why would I stay here:
1. Near Oxford Road for Palace Theatre & Cornerhouse Cinema
2. 10mins walk from The Opera House Theatre
3. Clean and value for Money in city centre
4. 3 mins walk to Canal Street and China Town
You are not to close to the shops - I would say 10-15mins walk through the safest and busiest parts of Manchester.
