Our stay was a very good experience. We will definitely stay again in this hotel as our son is now at Manchester Uni. I would recommend the hotel to family and friends. Hopefully will book again soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Finding my way around Manchester
I didn't know how to find the location of the wedding and staff at reception helped me. They provided me with a map so I could walk as it was not very far away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AlanWSW New(ish) hotel poor breakfast
Rooms are new and comfortable but hotel let down by usual Holiday Inn uninspiring breakfast. Cheap ingredients, unpleasant, overly sweet yoghurt etc... No evening meals on site but very reasonable, good quality set menu available next door at the Crowne Plaza.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kipcol A good HI Express
Do not be put off by the entrance way - a squeeze next to the boarding up of the luxury apartments still being built.
Staff were welcoming and I appreciate getting room at 11:30
Hotel is well designed with the lifts set away from the rooms. These lifts are also between the neighbouring building works so I did not notice any noise.
Room and bathroom was spotless
Free wifi was pathetic - to access anything I had to upgrade to high speed which at 4.50 GBP per device for 24 hours is not badly priced more an annoyance.
Simple tablet device in reception for ordering a taxi was useful.
If you know Manchester then location is convenient for Arndale centre and not far to walk to the Arena (MEN, NYNEX or whatever it is called now). Hidden behind the Crowne Plaza
If you do not know Manchester then it is hidden away

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Abi69 Great place if your haveing a short stay.
staff : when we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful but the staff that where on late at night where not so helpful.
Rooms: the only rooms with a good view where on the 8th floor and with the large windows as this floor take you just over the tops of the other buildings.
The other rooms had small windows and you would have been looking at the side of a building .
Food: not much to choose from but they had all the basic breakfast things, make sure your there early if you want to get a table as the later you leave it the more people are down there.
over all , I will be using this hotel again because it is in a very central area with a shopping centre for the day time and the clubs for the night.
I would recommend this hotel for people going to Manchester for the night life.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by zzhong the reward points are very confusing
i have stayed there for 26 nights in total and all i got is 1000 points and it takes very very long time to show up in my account. I was hoping to use it book another hotel but i can't right now. I'm on business trip and the reason i stayed in this hotel is to earn some points. If i knew i would only get 1000 points, i would not choose this hotel at all.

I stayed at the hotel for the first time and found my experience perfect, the hotel, room & staff were second to none. The beds were very comfortable, rooms extremely clean as was the rest of the hotel. All staff were extremely helpful especially the breakfast staff who were so accommodating. I will have no hesitation is recommending your hotel to family & friends. Thank you again for helping us to have a great stay.

great location for downtown Manchester, OK if you are not spending too much time in hotel, nor if you do not eat here. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance and lots of shopping nearby as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mazkazdaz great staff and location
From the moment we arrived we were embraced by the traditional friendliness of mancunians; as we were warmly welcomed by the staff. They are a credit to the hotel and make the hotel feel more than a chain of hotels.
Great location in a fantastic city.
Fantastic modern, comfortable rooms. Great value for money!

Once the parking was sorted which was only a 100 metres away it was all plain sailing. Staff we're very helpful as was the little machine for booking taxis. Great room and great location for the centre of Manchester.

I've stayed at this hotel on a weekly basis for the last 18 months due to work in Manchester. The staff are excellent. Nothing us too much trouble for them and they are very knowledgeable.
The rooms are comfortable and offer great value for money.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Thank you very much to make my stay brilliant. I enjoyed it a lot. Customer service was excellent and staff was very friendly too.
You have great new hotel, cosy rooms. If you would improve your breakfast quality, staying with you could be just perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MOK27 warm welcome, happy stay
I stayed in a twin room recently. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is near everything but is away from city noise so we had peace and quiet. All staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate but the galley area where the buffet was laid out was too small for the number of people wanting breakfast. Staff flagged this with us and if you were up early then it wasn't too busy. Would recommend this hotel and would gladly stay again on a future trip to Manchester.

Very modern and clean enviroment, it was in general very relaxed atmosphere, and not rushed, convenient location, easy access to order taxis, the only down side was no wardrobe and cupboard space. on the whole a good holiday base to use. Cleaners do a good job in making the rooms, clean, tidy and smell nice.

Brilliant hotel in central Manchester - easy to walk to main areas. The breakfast that is included is very good. Probably the best shower I have ever seen in a hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dickiedido Well worth consideration
This is a new hotel ( less than 5 yrs old), that offers clean, comfortable accommodation with efficient friendly staff. It was cheaper than Premier Inn and offered better facilities. We would thoroughly recommend it. Only gripe - the way the tables are laid out in the eating area means you have to find a way of weaving between the seats to get to the self-service area, but that's a small criticism. The rest was very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by litsa very clean hotel at an excellent location
the hotel is situated in the center of the city and it has very easy access to every where. rooms are big and absolutely clean.
i stayed in a room in the 6th floor and the view is amazing.
the only draw back is the breakfast. although is is ' free' i believe it is very poor. i have seen other quests bringing their own things, like cheese, ham and fruit. personally i stayed for 5 days and the last two days we have breakfast outside the hotel. if the management improves this aspect , i believe that the hotel will be rated as a 5 star hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gabrielle10 Great value stay
The receptionist was so helpful and even printed off a map for me and talked me through the route to the restaurant I was due to visit that evening. Great service - thank you!
Parking is a bit of a walk away and driving up to the hotel is difficult while road works and construction work is under way.
But all in all a good overnight stay at a great price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nonigyrl Great value for money
I and my husband really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Manchester City Centre - Arena. Very clean room with comfortable bed and A/C which was lovely as it was quite hot outside, great customer service, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast and just a relaxing atmosphere. Although there was contruction going on beside the hotel, we didn't hear any noise at all. Also a walking distance to shopping centre and other areas of interest. My husband and I will definitely be staying at this hotel on our next visit to Manchester City Centre. Keep up the good work. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stevie B1971 Nice Hotel, No natural air and broken air con
Having looked at the pictures of the rooms on the website, i thought they looked very modern, however the window is one big piece of glass and on arrival we noticed there was no way of opening them, the room was stifling hot, there is air con in the room but you have to call reception every time you want it put on so you have no real control of it. I would guess this is a cost cutting exercise due to the intense heat while we were there rather than an 'issue with the control panel as suggested by the staff, this resulted in either a very restless uncomfortable night or a very noisy restless night when the air con was on.
other than that the staff were nice enough and the hotel looks good and is well placed for most things in Manchester, just don't expect a good nights sleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Clean hotel, relatively new
Good room, but was smaller then I expected. A/C unit was a little noisy.
Parking was complicated, pay machine is either coins or pay by phone, and access to the front of the hotel is down cobbled lane, and due to construction work all around the hotel it is hard to see in the dark. (I didn't have any noise from the building site).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by clareboo1978 Nice Hotel - Shame about the bar prices
Overall our stay was good, but we were very disappointed with the bar prices - even with 25% off for Happy Hour the drinks were still extortionately priced.
Check in was a bit chaotic as my booking seemed to have been processed incorrectly online and they wanted more money from me which I refused to pay as my booking confirmation was correct for the number of people I had booked for, and the receptionist was very helpful in sorting this out.
The look and feel of the hotel was lovely and it is in a good location - the décor
