            Very disappointed with the location as it states it is in the northern quarter , actually over 7 miles away and cost us over £100 in taxis back and forth, this is very misleading and was the only reason we booked as thought it was in the northern quarter, couldn’t cancel as they still take full payment even 4 days before. The hotel did say they would have excepted a cancellation but it was Agoda who wouldn’t. False advertising very disappointing. The hotel was ok, abit dated and no staff, at to wait around for a table at breakfast then cleaned it ourselves.

            Breakfast was the best part of my stay. The hotel is an old building with a maze of corridors and steps. No porter to carry suitcase. I got my room key at reception and was told to go through the doors, down the steps, up the stairs and follow the signs.....along the corridor through doors, through more doors, steps etc. It was cold weather at the time of my stay and the heating was turned off at night. It's hard to sleep when you're freezing cold. I won't stay again.

            Just come to the reception, I give vouchers to the girl who tells me that I have to pay (instead I had already paid via the internet), I try to open the room with the key ... but the room is already open and you can not close with the key , I try to open the tv ... but the tv remote is missing, I call the front desk and after several attempts with a universal remote control, I give up watching television with the understanding that the next day the problem would have been solved ... .. even the next day the problem was not solved. I try to take a shower .... but open water it takes the strength of Hercules !!!  Sunday afternoon I go out for a couple of hours ... but on my return at 15.30 ..... the room had not been cleaned yet (I had to wait until 17.00 and to be able to re-enter the room. At 8.00 pm I go down to reception to be able to buy something to drink .... but the door was locked and ... there was none. The location is far from manchester, and the bus stop is far ... need to do more than one kilometer walk. Sorry for my poor english ... I hope you can understand
