Found on 1st night no hot water and heating not running properly. Breakfast in the morning was dissappointing. Didn t find out about hot options till too late.

« nice hotel for the price »

Helpful staff, redecorated lobby and rooms, fast wifi Open for improvement: floors are really cold due to heating coming from the AC above the door, poor water pressure, real bread not just toast for breakfast

« fair Ibis room as ever, but 'Chill 96' catering disappoints »

I have stayed at this hotel several times before, but this as my first sampling of the new 'Chill 96' bar/café arrangement. I regret I have to record my disappointment with the food service available - the evening meal was reduced to the base 24-hours menu owing to 'chef still being trained - a Management failure.

« I paid for a one night sleep and did not sleep at all. »

I could not sleep at all thanks to having been given a room next to the main street that had not sound insulation whatsoever. Sirens of emergency services, general traffic and people in the street would keep me awake most of the night.

« Nice room »

I thought the room was good, really clean and the decor was nice. The bathroom was like a cabin on board a ship! Having said that, it was perfectly nice. The breakfast area was confusing with things all over different surfaces. I didn’t realise you could order a hot breakfast so I missed out on that.

« Excelent hotel shame about the breakfast »

This hotel is perfectly located in the center of manchester. Ideal for transport links, shopping and entertainment. Downside was the breakfast. Very poor compared to other ibis hotels I have stayed in.

Dear peterfA9670AO, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your experience. I am happy to see that you enjoyed your stay with us in our hotel and that you liked our central location. However I am disappointed that the breakfast took the shine of your entire stay. I hope that you will give us a second chance and that we will be welcoming you very soon. Best Regards, Paula Borkowska Front Office Manager

« Disapointing »

Room clean and tidy, bed comfortable as ever. Step at the entrance to the bathroom was dangerous especially at night time. The girl on the check in appeared not to understand the purpose of a pre authorisation and insisted on taking an addtional amount for the breakfast. This was rectified the following morning by the young man on check out when our amount spent was taken and the balance returned to my card. The choices at breakfast, both continental and English, were poor and in no way stood comparison with a rival hotel chain where we stayed some two weeks ago or even the Ibis Budget hotel in Bradford where we were offered a superb choice in the continental breakfast! The presentation of the full English breakfast was really unacceptable. Surely it should have been on a larger plate which had been warmed first! The menu was disappointing and had we not been in a hurry would no way have eaten in your hotel. The fact that there was no dedicated cook resulted in extremely poor bar service in the evening. Must do better or we certainly shall not be back.

« Upgraded Hotel. Downgraded Breakfast »

The new look hotel is great, Rooms are what you expect from a ibis clean and comfortable unfortunately the carpet in the bedroom had what I can only describe as a circluar bleach mark outside the bathroom that aside it was comfortable, We decided to opt for the £6.95 breakfast thinking that this would be the same as usual but alas not!, you now have to pay an extra £2 for an English breakfast there is no explanation of what you get for the uplift, When the breakfast arrives its on what can only be descibed as a side plate and to be honest the breakfast wasn't worth the hefty £8:95 per person when there is a weatherspoons around the corner that does a full size plate full of breakfast with a coffee for £5 per person, Would I stay again?..Yes, Would I eat there again..NO!

« Great hotel, shame about the guests »

The room was immaculate, the bed was the most comfortable I have slept on - however we were woken very late at night by intoxicated guests shouting in the corridoor.

« great »

I like all, except: 1) your new "reception desk" system general: the "desk" is located just in very narrow passage on a way from entrance door to lift with a lot of traffic - there are no place to stay with luggage without disturbing other passing guest; 2) The low sofa and small low tables are good for drinks, but it is not comfortable place to eat breakfast (there are few "normal" tables, but they have been occupied usually); 3) Every time the quests have to go between front door and elevator through noise "pub" atmosphere - is not a great idea. Lobby bar is fine when it is located on side or when it is more quiet. 3) there are no any hooks for outerwear in the room next to entree - only a wardrobe on another side of the room; 4) the carpet covering is not the best option for floors at the rooms, yes - it is new, but it has already some spots on it; 5) the ventilation in bathroom could be more powerful; 6) Quite limited selection of international TV-programs ( f.ex. non-one in Russian) What is perfect: location, staff, cleaning, breakfast, shower head with led-light, beds, the size of blanket

« Great Customer Service »

There was an obscure technical problem with my WiFi connection halfway through the stay. Both the receptionist and then the manager went out of their way to resolve the problem, eventually calling Accor technical and brokering a solution. I was grateful and impressed, again, by the service standards at ibis.

« Good Ibis room, but poor new catering arrangements »

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 3 or 4 years. As ever the bedroom was fine, but the new catering arrangements need some urgent management attention to get them functioning properly.
