The hotel is out of the way, with no decent restaurants nearby. It has a nasty "wrong side of the tracks" feel to it, a bit of a Warsaw pact barrack block. It does admit pets, which is the main thing to its credit. The room is most unpleasant. Instead of a separate bathroom, only the toilet is behind a door (A tiny, claustrophobic space it is too). The shower cubicle is next to the bed, and the washbasin is in the room. It reminds me of a dodgy lorry driver's B&B from the 1970s. Toiletries were confined to a single wall mounted bottle of universal soap. There was only one towel per person, and that was not particularly good - it resembled cardboard more than terry. No hand towels at all. The toilet had no light switch, only a motion detector. Whilst sat in there for one's daily function the light would go off after a short interval. I found myself opening the door to make room to move about enough to get the light back on. There was nowhere next to the bed to plug in a phone charger. The LED "mood lighting" under the wainscot rail was rather tatty already, with irregular spacing. There was no decent chair - I could not sit at the inadequate desk to finish the day's reporting. The bed was adequate, but the pillows poor. The TV worked, at least. Wifi was reasonable. The food offered to the weary traveller in the evening was a series of microwaved snacks, of low originality and even less attraction. The breakfast was a bit sad, but not as bad as the booking had led me to expect. No hot food was available at all. I asked the reception staff to book me a taxi which never turned up, and they would not approach a different taxi company. I imagine there is some exclusivity deal which badly needs reviewing. The promised email receipt never turned up, and the Accor web page to ask for a replacement is badly written. When I did eventually get an acknowledgement that the message had been sent to the hotel it still did not generate the required paperwork. I am still waiting a week on. A year after the introduction of the city tourist tax this is still not amortised into the room rate - I had to pay it at reception on arrival, a most peculiar and slapdash practice. I don't know who this hotel is aimed at, perhaps football supporters coming to the Etiahad for an away game. I think even they would be disappointed. I know it calls itself "Budget" but you can take economy a bit too far. I have seen better Doss Houses. I felt exploited, especially as the price was within a couple of pounds of the nearby Ibis Styles, which is as far downmarket as I would normally be prepared to go. I strongly suggest you find a better place to stay.

Basic hotel with no empathy

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

Journey07727152073 TripAdvisor review

Arrived at the hotel upon check in and explained that my husbands father had passed away and that we couldn't stay a second night. We were on a "pay at the hotel deal" with free cancellation. The hotel said that we would have to put our request in writing through Agodo. They took the full amount of money for our trip and when we contacted Agodo they referred us back to the hotel. Not a very good experience. Hotel is very basic. We only stayed in our room for a couple of hours, can't comment on the breakfast as we could not stay to fulfil our trip. Not very accommodating!!!

Dear Journey07727152073, We are truly sorry to hear about your loss and the challenges you faced during your recent stay with us. Please accept our sincerest condolences. We understand the importance of flexibility during such difficult times and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. Our policy regarding cancellations is to handle them directly with the booking platform used, in this case, Agoda. We will review the situation internally to ensure such miscommunications do not occur in the future. While we regret that your experience did not meet your expectations, we appreciate your feedback and will strive to improve our service. Should you consider giving us another opportunity, we would be grateful to welcome you back and provide a more positive experience. Warm regards, ibis budget Manchester Centre Pollard Street

Shame the beds aren't more comfy! Otherwise adequate for a short stay.

Dear Grace G., Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. I am surprised you found the bed uncomfortable, most guests rave about how comfy the "Sweetbed" by Ibis is but I understand that beds and bedding are down to personal preference. We hope the overall adequate experience will bring you back for another stay. Best regards, ibis budget Manchester Centre Pollard Street
