Disappointing
Leaving the hotel. The bed was ok, but nothing to write home about.
I arrived at the hotel . The entrance was a door down what seemed to be a back alley way. I rang the door bell A gentleman came down and told me I could only book in after 6pm after requesting 2pm. I received a e-mail after I had left about this. Why this could not have been done the day before travel I do not know. The room was small with a very small shower with hardly any water pressure and no towels. You had to pay a £1 for each towel you wanted. The reception was a little room in a corner.

The bed sheets were clean. TV signal was decent
Where to start - I travel on a weekly basis for work and this is literally the WORST hotel I have ever stayed in. Piccadilly Gardens is central but a quick google search I llustrates how grim and rough the area is. Attracts all the homeless drug addicts blatantly smoking spice in the street. Not safe. People p*ssing in the alleyway entrance. Hotel itself - filthy. Literally could not see out of the bedroom windows. Not a single towel provided. Zero hot water. Cheap hotel - but avoid at all costs.

Bed was comfy, the rest was so bad.
Room had no Wifi, Shower was broken. Didn't provide any towels or shampoo/body wash, no toothbrush no toothpaste. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. There are much better hotels in the city centre but thought I would give it a try but I regretted it, would have refunded but it was non-refundable.

Clean bedding & bathroom. Budget hotel therefore cheap price. Central location in Manchester close to public transport & shops.
It’s budget accommodation therefore may not suit everyone’s taste.

The place is amazing for the price, I needed a get away and it was quite, rustic, simple. I can say I’ll be staying again. Extra bonus, discreetly out of the way but still centred in the Manchester Piccadilly area.
The water took a long time to warm up which was the only bad thing. I kept thinking that it was never going to warm and I’d be running down but there was no issue after the wait.
