The next day involved a 10am breakfast and then Dan, Flo and I headed off to Old Trafford to try and buy some tickets off scalpers out the front of the stadium. Just after the game started we finally got our tickets for £25 each but when I paid the guy he claimed he didnt have £5 change so just kept the £30 I paid him...

Historical Traveler Reviews Arora Hotel Manchester
The rooms in this hotel was very spacious and the bathroom was nicely decorated. The receptionist was very helpful, getting me information on certain sights I was interested in. The only drawback is that there is no parking and we had a bit of trouble finding it since Manchester has so many one-way streets.
I had almost given up on finding a hotel in central manchester which was clean, comfortable and sensibly priced------and then after reading reviews on this page I tried out the Arora last weekend.
Have stayed a few times over the summer and the rooms are extremely comfortable and a good size. Where it falls down for me is "downstairs". The reception area is very functional but it feels very sterile. Not really the sort of place to hang out. And beware of the seating. Once down you may never get up again. There is a lounge area with more comfortable seats but it is just that, a room with seats. The bar is on the lower ground floor, except it's not a bar but a cocktail lounge. A word of warning, there is NO draft beer. Sometimes after a hard day in the office you need a decent pint to help relax you. They do stock a number of bottles but at £3.50 for a 330ml bottle of Guinness (served in a flute glass) it's not cheap. Haven't eaten there in the evening but the breakfast is more limited than many.
Cheap and Chic
This hotel is great value for a small boutique hotel, centrally located. Immaculate,spacious room with all mod cons and the bed was a dream. Staff were great and all really helpful and friendly. The hotel bar and restaurant are fantastic and the cocktails are a must.
Stayed here in August this year - was brilliant. Gorgeous rooms, really clean. Really central to all the amenities of manchester city centre. Great helpful staff. Can't recommend it enough - AND - it's cheap!
I've recently been in Manchester every week for about the last 6. So I have been trying out various places.
I recently stayed in the Arora with a friend, and the accommodation was wonderful! I got a very good deal through activehotels which I use for most of my hotel bookings. We had a double/double room and even with the two double beds it was still very spacious, with seating area. The decor was modern, smart, and clean. The bathroom was a great size with plenty of space for toiletries and a lovely big bath, with power-shower overhead. The beds and pillows were incredibly comfortable, you just sank into them! There is absolutely nothing I can fault with the room, I really enjoyed staying there. The only problem you may find is parking, as the hotel doesn't have its own car-park. Plus the bar/restaurant in the lower ground of the hotel is seperately run so does not have late-night opening for hotel residents, which was a bit of a disappointment but that's just a minor point. The location of the hotel is great, amidst all the Chinatown restaurants etc. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, and am planning on going back there very soon! Hmm mind you, if I recommend it more people may go, and the prices may then go up, and the hotel may then start to lose its new clean sheen....on second thoughts, NOBODY GO! :)
A hidden gem of a hotel!
Just stayed at the Arora based on the reviews on this website. It was fantastic. Because it is new everything is spotless, the staff are extremely friendly, the rooms stylish, large and with lovely comfy beds. The cocktail lounge looked amazing. If you want a chic boutique hotel at really reasonable rates (I got a room at £59 a night on the web) in the centre of town, I really couldn't recommend this more. Cliff Richard part owns it too! I will definately stay here again.
Top class service
I stayed at the recently opened Arora International last week and I was very impressed not only by the standard of the hotel but also by the friendly service and well appointed rooms. The location of the hotel is also excellent for both the travel links, shopping and the nightlife. I was in Manchester on business but I stayed into the weekend take full advantage of the attractions which Manchester has to offer and I was not disappointed. The restaurant in the Arora is FANTASTIC and the bar staff make cocktails to match anything I have ever tried in London. If I am in Manchester I will definitely be staying here - top marks all round!
Top marks all round
The rooms are large and have great decor, with spacious well-appointed bathrooms. Everything is spotless as the hotel is new. The restaurant/bar has a modern design and the breakfast was nicely done to order. The location is central to everything, and the helpful staff were quick to offer an umbrella when it started to rain. I would definitely stay there again.
