... stumbled around afterwards dizzy and laughing on the other adventurous obstacles that lied ahead. There was a tunnel phone box that started at one end of the playground and underground to the other end. I was attracted to it like a fly to a bug zapper and by the time my ear hit the box Nicolette was already speaking repulsive words into the tube telephone on the other end (that's my story anyhow :P). I couldn’t imagine such bad things being said. My ears needed to ...

... outcomes come to mind) Every day i caffeinate myself enough that I don't get tired until about 5 or 6pm. Then I take a nap and usually wake up by 1 and can't fall back asleep. Dan has tried to keep me up and not let me nap but eventually there's only so much he can do before I'm asleep. I'm so exhausted all the time that I can barely make a decision about anything. It's like the decision making portion of my brain ...

... at home with anyone else in the room. This time it was my niece and her boyfriend and his son. The only downside for them was to suffer through a long tutorial on bike racing tactics, ethics and history according to the Gavin brothers. The main event of the day was the ride up to Holme Moss that evening. He will stay there overnight to organize the bike storage at party ...

... GPS and farm tractors slowed us down a bit, but we did see some of the more well-known villages that Rick Steves raves about. There wasn't too much parking available, because in June, most everyone apparently goes to the Cotswolds. After a few photos taken out the window, I conceded it was better to get back on the M-something or other and get going to Manchester.

We hit some rain and delays with construction and accidents, and descended with ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Manchester Centre Portland Street

    Avoid if possible

    from

    Ok, it's only £56 per night, but please, if you can afford more, stay elsewhere.

    Good experience

    from

    Didn't expect much of this hotel but was pleasantly surprised - very clean, great location. Asked for a quiet room and got one facing the rear of the building. Room was spotless. No frills but at 53.95 we weren't expecting any. Bathroom is tiny but shower is lovely and very clean. Extra towels and pillows given on request with no hassle. Great snack service and internet access in foyer. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would defintely recommend - walking distance from train station and city centre.

    Very pleased

    from

    I've stayed at this Ibis and the other Ibis in Manchester, on Charles Street, and they seem identical, so choose by location. This one is a bit closer to the city centre and is within a minute's walk to Chinatown and many restaurants and shops. The room had air conditioning, and the round-ish bathroom others have mentioned, which is very modern and clean. The staff was very helpful. I had to leave at 4am to catch an early flight, and they arranged to have a taxi waiting. I confused their computers a bit by leaving so early, but they checked me out and mailed a final bill to me, which arrived promptly and all in order. Excellent service and value.

    Great location, not so great room

    from

    A friend and I stayed at the Ibis in May 2004. The location is good - close to almost everything we wanted to see and with good restaurants nearby. The room itself was not very good for the price. It was so smoky and they don't have non-smoking rooms. Even after staying there 2 days the room still reeked of smoke so our clothes did too. The staff was helpful in finding an Internet Cafe nearby and the restaurant was good but the room itself was not so great.

    Fantastic

    from

    Stayed at the Ibis Portland Street for one night.

    The hotel is very new, modern and clean. The rooms are very light and airy and are furnished to a high standard.

    The staff are very good. All very polite, helpful and friendly.

    The hotel is located right in the centre of Manchester and is very handy for shops etc.

    A superb hotel!!

    Great Budget hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Ibis for two nights & were really impressed. I was a little apprehensive of what to expect due to the cheap price but we weren't disappointed. The staff were really nice & really helpful, the girls couldn't have been nicer. The bathroom was great & the room was clean. The only problem was the bed, it wasn't soft enough for me. The food was also nice & not expensive. The location is also great.

    Ibis Portland St, Manchester is a great hotel

    from

    This was a very nice hotel with an unusual bathroom. Some have described it as being like a space capsule. The hotel is in the city center so almost everything is within walking distance. The room rate had gone up between the time I booked the hotel and our stay. They did give me the lower rate but only after I showed my reservation confirmation print out. And they did say that they did not have to honor that rate and pointed to a sign on the wall saying so. I found this a bit disconcerting as my paper did not say that. Breakfast is not included (no problem) but you are given vouchers for each person for each morning. If you use them or lose them you will be charged for those breakfasts. If you return them to the reception desk you're not.

    Great value hotel

    from

    I Stayed at the Ibis hotel on portland street Manchester recently.

    Great modern hotel, friendly staff, and you really must check out the toilet, space age indeed.

    For under 40 per room i cant fault it.

    If i had to find a criticism, the owners seem to have a golfing fixation, see the bar restuarant area.

    Would definatley stay there next time i need a hotel.

    The IBIS hotel in Portland Street, Manchester is good value for money and offers clean and relatively simple accomodation. The bar at the front of the hotel is large and spacious although not especially comfortable for a long drinking session, but perhaps this the idea. The rooms well equiped with beds that are surprisingly comfortable despite their hardness. The bathroom is the best part. It contains all the usual equipment for servicing human beings but is contained in a giant white plastic pod which reminds one of the film 2001 with it's stark efficiency. I should imagine that it can for be hosed out for cleaning or perhaps even jettisoned into space in the event of really terrible contaminations.

    All in all good value and I would stay there again

    The lovely breakfast

    from

    the lovely breakfast i had three mornings in a row was so good i will most certainly go back to the hotel. also, i was able to walk into the city centre and do lots of shopping, get a bus over the road to the trafford centre and get dropped off at the door on the way back, and then on an evening i was spoilt for choice for restaurants within the vicinity. i went back home a stone heavier. mind you, i wish there had been a couple of biscuits in the room to accompany my cup of tea. it wasn't too important though because i had brought my own, it having been my birthday the previous day, i had some leftover. the fact that i felt like a goldfish due to there being no blinds in the room was a bit of a shame but i am sure some lusty 40somethings had a good look.
