“Clean but not comfortable!”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. Throughout it is very basic but it is cheap to stay so this is expected. The hotel is ideally located for the Warehouse Project (walkable) and for this reason it was quite a young crowd.

When it comes to hotels I am very easily pleased however I must add that whilst I appreciated the cleanliness, location and price the beds were unbelievably uncomfortable. I kept waking up throughout my two night stay in pain. My boyfriend experienced the same. I have actually booked an Ibis Budget in Bruges for December but if the beds are the same I am going to have to change my reservation. A real shame as everything else was grand but I find the comfort of a bed in a hotel to be crucial!

Its Basic, its not the ritz, it has what you need for a stay. rooms are clean, reception are friendly, parking on site was easy and cheap - few quid for the night.
we never ate breakfast there but don't expect much, there ios a pub over the road 'hungry horse'.
It is an ideal hotel if you are going to the warehouse project (easy one road five min walk max), and Old trafford for the mighty reds, is is just a few minutes past warehouse project (Victoria warehouse).
remember its basic - and budget is in title but its financially practical overnight.

Stayed here on a Friday night as we was attending warehouse project.
Paid 30 pounds for the night and found this to be the ideal hotel, cheap and cheerful, rooms clean and tidy and 5 mins walk from the venue.
When we returned around 4am we was greated by security who checked we was staying there and made sure we wasn't making too much noise which we thought was good.
Check out was noon so perfect if your getting in late.

This Ikea budget hotel in Salford is exactly right for an overnight business stay just outside central Manchester.
Accommodation is clean, quiet, cheap and accessible by public transport. In addition some great design features really make this hotel feel more like a space station designed by Ikea than the drab budget box room often on offer in this price range.
Really thoughtful design and lighting crams in large double bed, bunk (in some rooms) WC closet, very welcome power shower, desk, flat screen TV and dressing area in a way that feels spacious and relaxing.
I commuted by bus and went out in the evening by tram (£2:50 ish return to Manchester off peak). Both were within a 3 minute walk and felt safe at night for a lone female traveller.
I paid £30 for the room via Laterooms & £4.95 for optional breakfast and felt this was good value. Breakfast was a good continental selection in a clean well designed dining room. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed on a Friday night and didn't get a wink's sleep. Slamming doors all night, people screaming and running around the corridors, all that you can hear from your room. Fire alarm went off three times during the night, eventually had to gather in reception, only to be told by the fire brigade that there was no fire. Ridiculous organisation, heard several people complaining to reception, asking for any sort of information. We were told nothing - pretty frightening when you're staying on the 7th floor, you can't just pop back to your room. And we didn't even get an apology the next morning when we checked out.

The rooms were clean, if a little hospital-like, but to be honest, If I were you, I'd spend a little more and get a safe, quiet hotel. Unless of course, you are 16, and you want to run around the corridors getting pissed.

We have learnt our lesson!

Room Tip: One of the lifts was broken so I wouldn't go too high up!

Stayed for one night for a Manchester United game with my twelve year old son. Hotel is about a ten minute walk to the ground. Check in was quick and easy. Room was clean and perfect for our needs. We had our evening meal across the road at The Matchstick Man pub which was very good. I paid less than £24 for the hotel room and would recommend.
