Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 280 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brill Just came back from a Christmas shopping trip from the centre of Manchester. This hotel is in a fantastic spot which is so near to many restaurants and all the shops you ever need or want. Has been opened for around 2 years now but everything is all spotlessly clean and well looked after. Several car parks within walking distance and well priced compared to other city centres. If just organising a social night out again an ideal spot with several pubs nearby. Breakfast is included within the price but would say not the best quality but is adequate and plenty of it. Bed was a little on the soft side for my liking and did not sleep to well but was not disturbed by any noise from the outside. We usually visit different cities to go Christmas shopping every year but myself and my wife both agreed that this was one of the best visits by far and will certainly consider this hotel again for next year based on this experience. keep up the good work December 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great hotel had an excellent stay at this very comfortable and well located hotel.the staff were very friendly and helpful,the quality and comfort are 1st class . November 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 First time visitor I booked at the Holiday Inn express for an overnight stay with my teenage son as part of his 16th birthday present. It's perfectly located for the M.E.N Arena, which was our destination for a gig. And also for a shopping trip, night out in Central Manchester. I was pleasantly surprised when we turned up. I hadn't expected too much but found the hotel to be great. My son was amazed that we were staying somewhere like this. He had thoughts in his head of a grotty bnb. Check in was simple, the staff were lovely and our room was perfect. Spotlessly clean, kitted out with all we could need, comfy beds and air con for heating. Breakfast was adequate although I had to do without soya milk but again, instead of my morning coffee I was able to have juice. There was plenty of choice. We will be booking again with this hotel for our next visit to Manchester and would highly recommend the hotel. Great value for money too. November 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for MEN arena. Stayed here recently after watching 30SecondstoMars @ MEN. Great location. Very comfortable room. Love the glass lift. Ample b/fast. What more can I say. Would not hesitate to book again next time. November 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, nice clean rooms, lovely shower. The hotel was really easy to get to from the north east, it was in a perfect location in the centre of Manchester for shopping and the MEN arena. Hotel was clean, nice fixtures in bathrooms, staff were friendly. Where the breakfast items were set up was a bit cramped and could have been organised slightly better, but overall we had a great stay. November 28, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good location but can be noisy I've stayed at the Holiday in MEN Arena twice before. Location is excellent for Manchester City Centre and staff always friendly and helpful. However, on my stay on 23rd November the hotel was fully booked with a large number of sports fans who were very noisy coming back to their rooms and disrupted the sleep of other guests. As a lone female guest it was quite intimidating. Think there should be additional security on reception when the hotel is fully booked to deal with drunk and rowdy guests. November 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MEN Event 1 night stay 12 mins walk from MEN loads of bars around the hotel. comfy beds breakfast was only warm sausage egg beans and toast plus usuall cereals but did the job for us. the location and cost was what we where after and to be fair this hotel ticked all the boxes. We will book this hotel again if we go to the MEN arena November 26, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Simple Enough Located a bit of hidden corner but close distance of city center, shopping center within walking distance. November 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very enjoyable stay The staff at reception were very efficient and friendly. The room was large with double bed, sofa, quality TV and bathroom. Location is very good, just a few minuets walk to the centre of Manchester. There is a small supermarket oposit and many places to eat just down the road. Recommended. November 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Hotel I chose to stay at this hotel with a friend who was visiting Manchester. I had stayed in the Crowne Plaza next door, numerous times, so I was intrigued to see what the level of quality would be like, as I had a benchmark to relate. We arrived right on the time for check in and were correctly greeted as a Gold Priority Club member. We were whisked through the check in process and advised we were situated on the top floor of the hotel. We arrived in the room and it was pleasantly spacious. I wasn't expecting it to be so. There was enough room to move about in, the bathroom was spacious, the shower was exceptionally large and the amenities in the bathroom were of a good standard. The breakfast the following morning was excellent. There was plenty of space to sit, plenty of choice to choose from, on both continental and full english options. The staff were friendly, attentive and gave off an aura of being extremely helpful. Overall, for the price I paid and the level of service I received, I would, without hesitation, recommend this hotel to anyone. November 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very friendly and helpful staff Thought this hotel would be impersonal since it is part of a huge chain but I couldn't be more wrong. Staff were so friendly and helpful, room was spotless and peaceful. Very comfy bed and lovely big bathroom. November 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Experience We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Manchester-City Centre Men Arena, during our recent trip to Manchester and can only say what a pleasant experience it was. Lovely clean modern room , a comfortable quiet night , friendly, helpful staff We will definitely use again in the near future. Our first choice of stay in Manchester. November 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great location and good service Excellent location-central and within walking distance of shops, men arena, xmas markets, bars and restaurants. Hotel clean and comfortable and staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Room a little on the chilly side for me even with air con turned up. Cool elevator with views of city. November 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel, nice staff I liked this hotel, ok the rooms are small but decor is nice, tv is good, bathroom has a nice large shower. Breakfast could do with a litlle bit extra on the hot side Would I come back - yes i would November 19, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Scott's Stay 04-11-2013 Was greeted at reception as an elite member, however, the booking was incorrect. The hotel had me in a twin room when my booking clearly stated a double room with single occupancy. They had no double rooms left so they put me in a room for people with disabilities. I showed the gentleman behind the reception desk my booking and he said he would go and check but after wating for around 15 minutes he did not return so I went out for the night. I have used this hotel several times in the past hence why I rebooked, however, the service was not as good as previous stays. Since this stay I have stayed in hotels on two different occasions and not chosen IHG hotels and tried a different hotel chain which has been a great experience. Previouly I have always opted for IHG and I am booked inot this hotel in December but am thinking of changing my booking November 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Close to Tram & Perfection Best shower I have experienced and friend front desk staff. Only area for improvement is car parking (options are nearby) and breakfast. November 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great hotel well placed for central Manchester Great hotel good value well presented bedrooms,near to central Manchester November 6, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Really good stay, great location. I wasn't sure what to expect as some Holiday Inns in the UK aren't great, but was very pleasantly surprised. Fast, friendly check-in with a free drink and snack offered because of platinum status. Late check-out was very easy to arrange. The location was perfect for me ( a few minutes from Victoria and about 10 minutes walk from Piccadilly). Room was better than some considerably more expensive and supposedly better brands I've stayed at recently. Seemed quite new, quiet, extremely clean, large bathroom, good view of Manchester from the 6th floor as well - especially at night! The only slight downside I can think of is that the bed was a bit soft for my taste, but that's just personal preference. Would thoroughly recommend the place to anyone who wants to be in the city centre! November 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Modern Hotel We stayed overnight here while attending a business event and were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff were friendly and keen to help. Breakfast next morning was basic but very nice. Would come back next time for leisure, this hotel is great for access to all things Manchester! November 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good location for the Arena Excellent location for the Arena and shopping / resturants October 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great facilitys We stayed here to go to the Arena for a concert. It was within walking distance which was fantastic. The room was excellent, roomy, clean, large walk in shower (big enough for 2) . The staff were very friendly and recommended a nearby restaurant which gave you 10% off for staying at the Holiday Inn which was great. Overall i couldnt fault it and would definatly stay here again. October 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT! The bedroom, breakfast, services ... everything is great. October 22, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Almost perfect Everything was great...apart from free wireless. The speed and/or capacity was so poor that I couldn't even pick up e-mails. Bit poor to advertise "free wi-fi". A real shame as everything else was great, clean, efficient, friendly. October 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fabulous Stayed for 1 night with my boyfriend whilst going to the manchester arena to watch Jay-z. Room had all amenities you could want, the bed was very comfortable, free wifi and breakfast with air con all nice extra touches. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks xx October 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything was great! Couldn't fault the hotel or the staff, fantastic!! October 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Clean and friendly We stayed at this hotel as we were seeing jay z at the men arena. Great room, very clean and friendly staff. The breakfast was great value and plenty on offer to eat. Great value and only a 15min walk from the arena October 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looking for somewhere comfy in Manchester If your going to a gig at the phones 4u arena this hotel is ideal 10 minute walk from the venue. Comfortable decent sized room, ample space in large shower can wash your hair without banging your elbows on the shower. Excellent help and service from all staff we came into contact with. Only down side don't expect to much from the breakfast. If I go to another gig at the arena this will be my first choice for a stop over. September 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by really curteous staff! Stayed for one night while daughter and friends went to MEN, felt very safe on my own while they were out. We had double room with sofa bed (for me!) which was surprisingly comfy, staff very helpful and curteous when I asked for an extra cup etc as room was only set up for a double. Would have liked more tea and coffee (only one teabag each) without having to ask. Breakfast was standard but plenty of choice, booked online a couple of months ago so got a good deal for room. Very good value for city centre hotel, will stay there again. Room and bathroom REALLY clean. September 24, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by terrible bed thought we would try this as an alternative to premier inn will not make that mistake again, the bed was awful worst nights sleep in a hotel in a long time, breakfast was poo,r coffee undrinkable really lots of people in a small area trying to go backwards and forwards totally ignoring the in and out signs for the food, the tables were for 4 struggled to get a seat had to ask someone if we could share not everyone wants to do this. great bathroom and location. September 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Close to city centre Excellent hotel,just a very short walk to the city centre, great for shopping! Very clean and comfortable. Great breakfast and very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. September 10, 2013
