Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Draiggoch Convenient and reasonable value
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beata Thank you Holiday Inn Express Manchester!
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.

Was so impressed, I stayed here at the beginning and end of my UK trip. Can safely say that it was the best accommodation on my whole time there. Really pleased that I could end my trip to the UK there.

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.

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

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Westwood Great location
A good hotel well positioned for exploring Manchester. Plenty of nice bars and restaurants nearby. Parking is a bit of a pain, but cheap enough and current construction work outside of the hotel made it difficult to temporarily park up safely whilst getting parking details and ticket from reception. I would certainly consider this hotel if returning to Manchester.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alison9463 Comfortable Bed and a good tea and coffee machine
Was a good stay in Manchester. The hotel was located near manchester city centre, which is very handy if you want to go down to the centre. The coffee and tea machine are very use for making a cup of drink. the bath room was clean all the time and bed is always made when we are out. Only disappointment is that i found the pillows a bit uncomfortable. But overall, it was a great stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AAL1970 Excellent hotel
I am very satisfied with almost all aspects of the hotel - from room to staff to breakfast. I would highly recommend it.
Just a couple of notes: 1) "Free internet everywhere" is basically not true. The connection quality is very poor when you choose the "free" option, which forces you to pay 4.50 pounds a day. 2) The compact fluorescent lamps in the bathroom take ages to reach maximum capacity - and even when they do, they are not too bright. They could isntead use either better quality CFL or use LEDs, as long as they are "warm white/ 2700-3000K, anything else is too "cold".3) It would be nice to have a minibar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beebusy Relaxing even when on business
Holiday Inn Express at Manchester City Centre is situated in the Northern Quarter.
The location is ideal if you are working as it is a short walking distance to Piccadilly Gardens. Also it is surprisingly quiet surrounded by cafes and apartments.
You can enjoy a drink sitting outside on the raised patio area relaxing after a day at the office.
Staff are welcoming and friendly; checking in and out carried out in a highly effecient manner.
Rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet with free wi-fi provided in the room and all parts of the hotel. Room service was excellent.
If you are visiting Manchester, I suggest you stay here . You will be sure to want to return; that's what I shall be doing.

A great place to stay if you going to a concert in Manchester. Its right in the heart of the nightlife. Great value. Staff were fantastic. Only slight issue was that mattress was poor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Boycie Suited our needs
If you expect this to be next to the Arena, it's not. A good 15min walk. Very clean hotel, seems to be quite new, bar expensive, breakfast very basic, nothing for Gluten free guests.
I paid the advance saver rate, only to check the night prior to arriving that it was cheaper if you booked then. To be fair, they discounted me to the cheaper rate, but it took some phoning around.
Loads of restaurants near by, also a Spar shop opposite and a cash machine. No on site parking, but some available within 100mtrs for £4.50/24hrs. Not secure parking though.
Left at 6.15am on the Monday, the reception guy wasn't really interested in assisting with us getting some breakfast to take away with us. (Something we were advised about by another guy the previous night)
Overall, we enjoyed the stay, great for a central location, but there are hotels closer to the indoor arena.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Julia555 Well located hotel
Stayed here with my mum as we had tickets for a gig at the Phones 4 U arena.
The hotel is fantastically located if you're going to an event there. Only 10 min easy walk. It's also ideally located to go shopping in town and the Arndale centre, being 5-10 mins walk away.
There are lots of restaurants within a couple of mins walk. Lots of variety and choice.
Hotel was good, great staff service and rooms clean and comfortable.
Note the arrangements for parking before hand, as you need to pick up a voucher to display in your car for the nearby car park. Great value at £4.50 for 24 hours.
