Fantastic location

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Jenny Couples - 16/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great location, friendly staff, lovely hotel as a whole. Room could have been slightly cleaner (hairs in the toilet and makeup on the door). The pillows were awful, had neck strain for the next two days. Other than that the rooms were a decent size and nice to stay in.

I was allocated a room on the 4th floor - definitely a good idea because Portland Street is busy on a Friday night! Friendly reception staff. Nice and bright room, I liked the decor. Everything was clean. Only thing, the heating wasn't working in the room.

Well located bad stay

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Jack Couples - 09/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel itself is lovely and in a brilliant location, but there was some bad points. The beds and pillows were so uncomfortable, the mattress was rock hard. The couple above us was screaming and shouting at 3am, the group of girls at the end of the corridor were shouting at 2am and the most horrendous screams coming from outside the hotel at 3am were just abysmal.

Very well located, friendly staff. Room comfortable but poorly soundproofed

Loic C. Families - 01/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff is very helpful. The hotel is located in the city center. 10min walking to all places. The room are comfortable with all the stuff necessary for a short stay. Bed is nice too. The only problem is the poor quality of the windows that are not soundproof. Fortunately for us the street was not too busy during our stay but it’s to be taken into account if you are looking for quite nights.

Good location but freezing cold room!

Steven Solo - 30/12/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room had air conditioning which would have been great in summer but in winter I needed heating and there was no way I could see to get the unit to blow warm air rather than cold. I asked at reception and they couldn't offer any advice as to how it worked which was really poor. The room never got above 17 degrees according to my digital thermometer.

sunilanwar 26/12/2021 TripAdvisor review

I stayed in this hotel only for day, just on the last day of my 10 days trip in United Kingdom. In fact i have stayed in Ibis Styles for four nights during this trip. The hotel was exceptional and the service offered for the money I paid, I should say the stay was exceptionally good. The check-in was very easy and the checking staff was very friendly and we were allowed to store our two pieces of luggage overnight. The room was bigger than most of the Ibis hotel I've stayed with enough storage and larger than expected toilets. The ironing room adjacent to our room (310) was very convenient and when I checked out early morning the reception staff arranged a taxi to the airport and he ensured that the taxi arrived on time. I should stay this will be first preference for my future trips to Manchester and recommend this hotel whole heartedly to all types of travelers, solo or family. I fell sad that I could stay more days in this hotel and also I forget to note the names of the staff members; all i have had interaction were beyond the expected level. A great stay on the best location in Manchester, with access to shops, restaurants, bust station, etc.

Friendly festive break

Our stay was good but our room wasn't ready for early check in as planned. Parking fee was a lot more than we were lead to believe, which was very disappointing and not a good end to our stay. Staff were very friendly, helpful and nice. I would have liked an extra blanket on my bed if I'm being picky about our room

John_Conakry 11/12/2021 TripAdvisor review

I felt this was above average for a British Ibis. Clean and comfortable, though I found the street noise a bit of problem. We had a fire alarm in the middle of the night. Alarm rang for about a minute and people on my floor decided it must be a false alarm and went back to their rooms. I felt there should an official announcement that it was safe.

Handy Location and Good Value

Freedom303084 31/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

This was a repeat visit as the previous visit worked out well. It's a refreshed Ibis - downstairs is very informal with a good size bar and sitting area. You can order from a limited range of pizzas but there's loads of places to eat in the area. Chinatown is right behind the hotel. The room was fine. Very quite and I slept in! This time I had a car with me which I parked in Q-Park behind the hotel. The hotel offers a discount but it doesn't work if you pre-book the car park. But I found a 10% off coupon online. Checkout and check in were quick and friendly. Will happily use again.

Very good hotels and location

Jitendra P 14/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Travelled to Manchester to participate in Marathon event, though I booked a budget hotel for my stay, but seeing the review of that hotel, I thought of changing, which was difficult given the marathon weekend, everything was booked and prices were very high, somehow I got to know about ibis hotel and it fits into my budget (with family), I quickly booked this and cancelled earlier. In all honesty, I was not disappointed, room was big enough for 2 adult and a kid, clear, good bathroom. Only thing is we wanted extra cot but it's not hotels fault, didn't added that to my request. Though they offered next day but we managed as bed was big enough. Reception is excellent, all other amenities are very near. We checked out early morning 4 am, a gentleman was at reception, it was very quick, no haasal. Will return again whenever I plan for Manchester again.

Very good, reasonably-priced hotel in ideal location.

dariusastell 03/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Very pleasant rooms in a hotel literally around the corner from Chinatown, with excellent Thai and Vietnamese restaurants also within a 3-minute walk. Good selection of nearby pubs (three just along Portland Street) and only a 10-minute walk from either Oxford Road or Picadilly Stations. Very reasonably-priced given its venue.
