"Too noisy to sleep"
The hotel itself is clean and the staff are courteous but it is let down by the noise, cities are noisy but the 2nd floor room I was in overlooked the traffic junction on the street outside and the noise was unbearable (I think I only managed to sleep a few hours per night), it's not only the traffic though you can actually hear people talking on the street as they leave the bars (no chance of an early night).
"Nice hotel, not so nice location"
Situated right next to Gay Village and popular party venues, the outside of the hotel and nearby streets, tend to be littered. Apart from this, the location was actually quite nice for us, as we enjoyed a little stroll to the other parts of Manchester, which enabled us to stop by various pubs along the way. Definitely visit "The Old Monkey" which is right nearby.
"pity about the noise"
The hotel was conveniently located for the station, shops and the opera house which is why we chose it.Unfortunately it was very noisy at night which made sleeping almost impossible!! We had lunch when we arrived which was advertised as being free if you did not receive it within 20 minutes. It arrived over 30 minutes later so we did not pay, which was good as the sandwich was dry and the soup was full of raw vegetables . At breakfast we started to eat a yoghurt which we noticed was 2 days out of date. No apology was given but they did remove all the remaining yoghurts!!
The decor was lovely, the room looked great, but there was a constant mechanical hum all night that kept me awake. A real disappointment. Pleasant enough breakfast, and staff were all friendly and helpful
"It's a no"
Rooms are okay and clean, good location but.....Windows don't open, night club next door, and street noise. However, what really got me was a note the hotel left on a harmless, out of the way bicycle when right across the street, directly in front of the hotel entrance were piles and piles of garbage. The rats were very evident late at night and early morning. The garbage remained there the 4 days we were at the hotel. Seems the hotel was more concerned by a harmless bike than filth and rats at their front door.
