              spoiled aircond, phone, charged GBP50 / room deposit... etc.”

              I travelled with a group and booked 4 rooms for 8 person. Here are the feedbacks. - out of 4 rooms, only 1 room is equipped with 2 towels. The rest comes with 1. We have to request from the counter. - The room has a telephone but no phone port is available and the phone cable is connected to a wall that has no phone port. It is clearly there without a purpose. - i booked 4 rooms and they charge deposit of GBP50/room which is GBP200 deposit in total whereas hilton in london only took GBP30 for all 4 rooms. - breakfast was good. - Only certain staffs were friendly. - I booked on Agoda and they claimed that they received payment for 3 rooms and not the 4th. The hotel manager forced us to pay for the rooms (GBP500+ 3 nights) and demanded us to talk to Agoda if we want them to void the payment. Finally we called agoda and one friendly agoda helpdesk helped us to settle it. All in all, this is the worst holiday inn express i'd ever stay and i will not recommend it to anyone.

              Hotel is in a great location on Oxford road just a few steps from The Palace theatre and a short walk to the main shopping area ,The hotel staff were all very nice and checkin was a breeze, Now for the not so good , The breakfast area in the morning is a shambles ,Not enough seating and the tables are not cleaned often enough so plates ,Cups and utensils pile up on the tables , When I checked in my room was like an oven and after several attempts to adjust the Air con it was obvious the air con was not working so I asked the receptionist to have it serviced however because it was a Saturday there was no maitinence service, The receptionist checked in the office behind reception and explained that the aircon on the floor (10th)was not switched on and that she had rectified the problem but it never cooled down so I spent two very uncomfortable nights trying to sleep in a room that was a virtual Sauna I ended up requesting a top sheet and slept on top of the douve ,Not very Happy

              Good Location, Small Rooms and OK service.”

              The location of the hotel is excellent for anyone visiting Manchester. Breakfast was typical British food. Some of the staff are friendly but some are rather less helpful. A couple of them seems like they couldn't be bothered with us, slow responding time. One staff seems very irritated when we ask to her to hold our luggage. We had 3 double bedrooms, all were fine but we asked to change one as the room did not have working phone, and it took the staff quite long to do so. Maybe it is just a British thing. The thing I love the most is the location, everything else is... OK.

              Staff were not exactly all friendly but i do meet a couple that were okay. breakfast was ok and since it was inclusive in the price i paid, so it was convenient that i didn’t have to hunt for breakfast in the morning. Housekeeping staff were quite anxious to clear out customers’ room as i had them knocking on the doors early in the morning asking when we are checking out. They were not exactly nice when they ask though and i don’t think that’s professional for a hotel chain either. they were knocking on our doors at 8 although checking out is not til 11. so when we said we were not going yet, she rolled her eyes at us. I don’t know if that’s the norm but even so, don’t think that was nice to tourists.

              our booking came with free breakfast, not very fantastic but it wasn’t bad either. i like that the fruit juices machine and coffee making machine are available throughout the day. i requested for a double bed and got a room that’s catered for handicaps so the sink for washing is lower. there was no safe box inside the hotel room too. location is within walking distance to manchester oxford station (5min) and piccadilly station(10-15min).

              Hey, stayed three days in hotel and on third day i got food poisoning from breakfast. Vomited and had terrible diarhea for 3 hours straight. Then had 20mins without vomiting and called to hotel lobby if they could help me out a little by bringing me water bottle and white bread (from breakfast) and i would pay or something since i was really feeling terrible, laying on the floor. They said that it couldnt be done that i should walk to the shop. Well, so i did and vomited on the shop and when i came back to the hotel and it all started all over again with fever.. Also because of the food poisoning they didnt let me in the plane because i was in such a bad shape. (Had to buy new tickets, and cant get any money back) Also there was no information about check in or check out in the hotel booking. Room itself was quite decent for the price of it, but there was no fridge. That is quite a big minus from me, basic thing to have. Hotel location is nice, close to everything.

              Sorry to tell...”

              I will never again choose this hotel. Sincerely I suggest any one going to choose it think twice. This is a cold rainy Manchester in May(4–8C), and I live in an express hotel without any heating. I just got cold. I thought taking medicine will cure it. But the air con seems not that easy to fix, it make strange blowing sounds once nearly half an hour while I have made sure it was fully switched off. Washroom was noise enough even I can not tell where the windy or buzzer sounds came. Downstairs the Oxford street is very noisy. Especially mid night till 3am. Both the street and air con sounds waked me up continuously 3 nights. This is the third room I have changed to, with paying extra money in the front desk. I double checked my booking confirmation that I booked STANDARD double room. First they arrange a disable friendly room(903) to us. When we entering the room sells really uncomfortable. Thank to holiday inn this is my first time to ask changing a hotel room. Staff quickly arrange another room(103) which is the same room type, disable friendly, but very dark inside. What’s more, there are construction outside the window. I go downstairs again to ask room change again. Why not calling from room instead of going downstairs again and again? Because the phone in 903 and 103 are both broken. They said no other rooms for me at this moment. It is strange. I have booked STANDARD double room which is you have not yet provided me any up to this moment. They said they do not have normal double room for my booking. Or I can pay extra money. O great, this solved. Finally I am in 312. A normal standard room type, you can see it in each floor plan on the back of room door from time to time. Besides, staff is professional and response quick. Hotel is geometrically near Manchester oxford station but you need to walk from station with bulky items for more than 15mins to get to the hotel. This good experience makes me feel good to Manchester and decidi

              We loved this hotel. We came to Manchester from London via train. We walked to this hotel (took us about 20 minutes) from Piccadilly station. I'll recommend taking taxi or Uber if your luggage is too much hassle. Hotel is at a very good location (next to Manchester Metropolitan Uni) so the place is always buzzing with people. It's about 15 minutes walk to Arndale or you can take a bus there too if you don't fancy walking (bus stop is just a few steps away from hotel entrance). There's a bus stop opp the hotel to take you straight to Old Trafford if you are planning to go there (buy the Day Trip bus tics to save money). Halal food is aplenty (takeaway Archies a few doors down) or about 5 to 6 more dine-in just opp the hotel nearer to the Uni. There's a big Tesco too around that area. Hotel stay comes with complimentary breakfast (just egg, bacon, bread) but it's not halal but we do come down every morning to drink coffee/tea/hot choc (there's a machine) and eat bread.

Waiting for 30 minutes and called, they say on the way. Another 30 minutes i called they said no tehnician and offered me a standing fan. Can’t move me to another room because it was fully booked. On the same day my friends also got problem with the Ac in her room, she went down to reception and ask for another room and they said fully booked, but when my friend ask for the refund they finally give another room. I was really dissapointed with the service and they dont event appologizes for that. The worst hospitality experience ever. But hotel locations was nice, 3 mins walk to train station, room was spacious, and many variety for breakfast.

              No shampoo and shower gel was available in the room. Not even a bar soap. I have never stayed in a hotel that doesn't provide these basics.

              My mom and I stayed here for 2 nights. The space of the twin room is bigger than the most hotel rooms I stayed in London or Edinburgh. So the price is reasonable and includes 2 breakfast. I only spent 3 minutes walk to Oxford road station. The staff here were friendly and helpful, one of which helped us book a taxi. The hotel is clean and tidy overall. I will recommend it to my friends who want to stay in Manchester.

              The toilet was clogged with a lot of hair and black particles,as if sand. The service was bad as the luggage was not brought to our hotel room for us and we had to bring it up ourselves. However, they do serve free breakfast.

              The staffs here are really nice!!! Always with a big smile, and help whatever you want!!! The room here is clean, and surprisingly saw a welcome message on the memo, that's really warm!!! The design is quite modern and quiet, small but obviously big enough for two person~! All in all! A nice place to stay in Manchester! I will definitely choose to stay here if I'm coming to Manchester again!

              Best Location. Nearest to the Univ and Foods”

              Location, Very Clean, Value for Money

              I stay for one week and very happy with the cleanliness of the room and bathroom. The staffs are also very helpful. I wanted to extend my stay for another two weeks, but the hotel was fully booked. The best location. A walk away from the Manchester Metropolitan City Univ, and Univ of Manchester is very close in 5 minutes walk distance. The Manchester Museum is a very close, and it's free. A convenient store is just right down at the corner, to get anything you need from mineral water, milk and snacks. Foods are very near: kebab, chinese foods, Archie's burger, Turkish cuisine, A walk away from the Corner House and Theatre at the Whitworth street. Those who travel by train from the Airport, the Oxford Railroad station is also in a 5 minutes walk distance. I will definitely return to this hotel when i visit Manchester again.
