Some reviews mention that the breakfast was lacking however I found it to be quite pleasant with fresh and tasty items including hot foods like sausage, bacon, and eggs. I do think the addition of a small gym would be nice however for the price I think it’s fair that there isn’t one. Overall a great choice for exploring Manchester :)

                Good location, price and great value for money”

                Questions I typically ask myself before booking a stay: 1. What’s the purpose of the visit and the budget for this leg of the stay? 2. Facilities I look for- functional lift, blow dryer, clean room and especially very clean toilet 3. Location of the stay and options around based on my purpose. 4. Brekkie options within and around the property. **** Purpose-chuck bags in, get out and get some beers and some more beers , basically pub crawl. Peaceful sleep is a MUST as I’m traveling from the land down under. Facilities-Excellent for what I was looking for! Location- Near perfect. I’d only complain about paying for the parking at Q, rip-off is the right word. Brekkie options- After a night of drinks, those over cooked eggs were still delicious. As a light sleeper, I slept like a log of wood. As a person who loves 5* hotels and facilities, I thoroughly recommend Ibis especially should your purpose of stay be the same/similar to that of mine.

                Location ”

                Pros - the location walking distance to the St Peters Square Tram station that allows you to go anywhere. Close enough to Tesco express or Sainsbury’s local. Next to cafe. Piazza Parking is right behind the hotel. You get a 30% discount if you stay at Ibis. We could grab some ice from the bar downstairs. But the staff wouldn’t allow us to heat any food / use the microwave oven.

                Surprisingly good choice”

                Well that was unexpected. I booked a couple of renovated rooms for myself and friends to go enjoy manchester. Expected a typical ibis with all the fun they tend to bring in a central location however the room was clean and fresh looking , had a decent bed, tea and coffee facilities and ear plugs just in case but the windows did their job and there wasn’t any issues with noisy guests, the bar was quite handy too given it was 24hrs. All in all probably one of my favourite budget hotel rooms.

                Good to stay in for a night. The only problems we had would be the bathroom and aircon. I would prefer the shower door to not have a gap in between and I dont understand why the aircon would turn off by itself.

                Closely located to fast food, good local restaurant, attractions like the town hall, University, picadilly garden and shopping areas. With just 2 mins walk, you are at a tram and bus station that connects you to everywhere else in Manchester!

                Lovely clean room. It had everything needed for an overnight stay. The buffet breakfast was great, with a choice of continental breakfast and full English. The staff were really friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

                Convenient location.”

                The hotel's location is pretty good considering the price. It is 5mins away from St Peter's Square tram station, providing access to many parts of Manchester City, which is really convenient. There are many restaurants (casual dining and posh places too) nearby especially chinese/asian food as Chinatown is just round the corner. Double Room is pretty small but we were out exploring the city so it didn't really bothered us too much. The decoration is nice and modern. Toilet is clean and working well. Room housekeeping is okay too, except the towels were missing on the 2nd day but the staff promptly delivered to us after notifying them (which is great!). Staff response is friendly and prompt. Wifi is okay for web surfing and mobile texting. Overall, a good stay and location for a really good price.

                I have been staying at this property for the last two months during the week. I was appalled last week to discover that the fire exit(s) were unsafe and that the place was lethal. I advised the manager personally and they refused to take any remedial action. I then called the Fire Safety service in Manchester who were on-site within two hours - late at night - and put an enforcement order on the property to clear the stairwells. This they did, but without any comment or apology. Avoid anywhere that puts its redecoration work above the safety of its guests.

                Staff, price, location

                For the price I had a comfort stay. Was neither luxurious or basic just exactly what you need. Rooms could use better socket locations more of them. In Italy I have usb connection sockets SOS buttons and overall facilities are better and cheaper. But for Manchester it was located very near to Picadilly station so great for late night stops. Would use again.

                The checkin staff we quick, friendly & efficient. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The Pod bathroom was great! The pretty much 24/7 food and drink availibility was great after a night out.

                We had a great time. As said previously, friendly and efficient staff who were also knowledgeable about the area. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The overheating hair dryer was swapped within minutes of bringing it to the attention of the young lady, Lisa I think, a member of your room maintenance team. The room was spotlessly ran, the aircon worked well, though the room we requested at the rear was quiet enough most of the time to have the window open at night without the need of the aircon. After our night outs we availed ourselves of the 24/7 bar for a night cap. Though we ate out each evening, we noticed that a lot of people, particularly late arrivals, used the food service in the reception lounge, which also seemed to be 24/7. Unusual in my travel experience but a great idea. Checkout was also swift and efficient. In summary, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a far superior offering to some of the so called 4 Star Hotels we have experienced in our travels do far this year. Well done to Ibis and well done to the staff at Ibis, Portland Street, Manchester. We will return.

                Friendly, helpful staff. Clean room. Free WIFI.

                There is free shuttle bus from Piccadily station stop right in front of the hotel. The hotel is located by the main road, very noisy at night, not recommended to stay in the room facing the main road. We did not have good sleep as very noisy throughout the night. There are cars, buses passing by and people talking loudly. The hotel is nearby Chinatown and walking distance to shopping area. The staff are friendly and helpful, took initiative to tell us the direction. There is WIFI access at the lobby and also in the room.
