“OK at the price”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We stayed three nights at the Ibis Budget Manchester. This is a very low-priced hotel and was probably not suitable for more than one night. We had a twin-bedded room; there was no luggage rack or desk on which a suitcase could be placed, so both our cases had to go on the floor--not a good solution for older people with tricky knees. No tissues, toiletries, or anything of the kind. Wi-Fi spotty at best. Breakfast was extra and had we known there was a restaurant across the street with a breakfast special that offered more for less, we would not have prebooked the breakfast. Location is convenient for Salford Quays and Old Trafford, and not bad for central Manchester since there's a tram stop directly across the street. There are also several chain restaurants across the street, so meals are convenient. Given the very low price, it's difficult to be too critical, but we wouldn't stay there again.

Stayed at this hotel for one night whilst visiting a friend. The good points: the staff were very friendly, the hotel was very clean, and the location great. The bad points: the bed was very uncomfortable (like a brick) and the pillow was so thin it didn't provide any kind of support at all - we had to put clothes underneath it. The room had a sink, a separate shower and a separate toilet all of which worked perfectly fine but the door to the toilet could only be pushed open so it was rather noisy during the night and the shower door didn't have a handle, just a hole in it which let water out. We paid in advance for breakfast but when we went down to the breakfast room we were first told that our names & room number weren't on their list and then, when we'd been found on the list, we were told that we hadn't paid. Eventually this was sorted out and we were allowed to eat however the selection was very limited - toast, bread rolls with some jam and three choices of cereal. Had we paid the £28 paid that they were advertising when we arrived we would have been perfectly happy but we made the mistake of booking in advance and for this privilege we paid almost double the price!

Dear barnie72,

Many thanks for posting a review following your recent stay at the hotel. Please be assured we do take on board all guests comments and feedback to improve further the services and standards we offer.

Please note that the rate advertised in the totem outside the hotel clearly states "rates from £28" and is purely indicative of our lowest standard rate and do not indicate the rates charged on the day.

Our best available rates, which are pre-paid, can only be booked in advance from our hotel website ( "Advance saver" or "Summer Promotion" ).

Kind Regards,

Jordi Pena
General Manager

Stayed here when I travelled to Manchester of a concert. This hotel is a cheap budget hotel, but is clean and functional. This hotel was grand for our purposes and we would definitely use this budget hotel again.

Stayed at this hotel for the Great Northern Swim event. Had not visited Salford before so all info came from the hotel website which was both informative and helpful. Check in was the slickest I've ever experienced and the room was all that it should be - clean, comfortable and meeting our requirements. The Budget arm of Ibis provides what travellers need without frills but don't compromise on friendly and helpful staff who are extremely pleasant to guests. Car parking was also very economical. Many thanks to all for a great introduction and experience of a city which has risen from the ashes of post industrialisation to be a city with a regenerated dockland which is both impressive and enviable. Will definitely be back to hotel and area again.

Stopped here after flying into Manchester airport. Paid only £40. Hotel been refurbished since its etap days. A lot more modern looking. Parked on a street round the corner for free. Would recommend for a "head down" after a flight or night out in the city.

Small rooms but well organized (maybe another piece of furniture where to put the luggage and cloths would be appreciated). Lavabo and shower directly facing inside the room. Helpful staff.
Good hotel for the price, cheap in comparison to the others in the same position.
