Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn Manchester City Centre (Arena/Printworks)
la localización del hotel es estupenda. se encuentra a 5 min. del centro caminando y si vas a acudir a algun evento en el MEN ARENA no creo que haya otro hotel mas cerca!!!!!
las instalaciones son muy confortables y la relación calidad-precio es inmejorable. El personal del hotel es muy agradable. OS LO RECOMIENDO SINCERAMENTE.
This is a great central hotel. I agree with the previous post in that it can get a bit loud during football matches. It was fairly quiet until our last night which was Roy Keanes testimonial. We headed away from the ground early as we had an early flight the next day. Turns out it didnt really matter as the Celtic fans kept us awake most of the night. It was all good spirited so was not bad at all.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was typical of travel inn's. I will be staying here in the future when I visit Manchester.
Great location - avoid if football matches are scheduled!!
Just returned from a weekend stay at this hotel with my boyfriend. Was very impressed by the location, being only about a 2 mins walk from the Arndale Centre, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges and about a 10 mins taxi ride from Old Trafford - the reason for our trip to Manchester. Staff appeared pleasant and friendly and the bar was ok. Can't comment on breakfast/restaurant as never ate in there. Hotel was a little noisy but can be excused because of it's central location.
We weren't so impressed though when we were woken at 1.30am by the fire alarm and had to evacuate the hotel. Turned out to be a prankster and we were let back in after 30 mins. But loe and behold, the same thing happened again on the Saturday night and again we had to evacuate the hotel at 4.30am! Again turned out to be a prankster. Would recommend not staying here when any big footie matches are being played!!!!
Great Hotel with friendly staff and clean rooms. Again, like another reviewer, got one of the free spaces which, being in the City is very handy.
Location was perfect. About 3mins walk to the Arndale Centre and Printoworks nightspots and seconds away from the M.E.N Arena.
The room we had was a family room (for just the 2 of us). The space in the room was fantastic. Shower was broke on arrival but was soon fixed. Their was a small amount of noise in the eveings (Fri and Sat night) from a small pub/club over the road but nothing that i could call loud.
Staff seem very happy to help. The only problem we had here was the "Express Check In" or Not so express. Arrived at 2.05pm and finally got our keys at 2.48. We were first in the queue. Felt sorry for the people behind us.
Would come here again for deffinate.
Lovely hotel in a fantastic city
Stayed at this hotel with my fiancee and we both loved it, just a short walk from the printworks and the bars and the fantastic shopping centres.
The rooms are very spacious and very comfortable.
The Tower of Manchester
As usual the premier Travel Inn provided some of the best tourist class rooms in the city. Add to this you get a mega view from the top floors of the hotel right over to the Pennines and beyond. The Arndale Centre is next door along with loads of other shops to look at. Ask for the 10th floor to get the best view.
All the rooms were spotless as the bed is huge. Loads of hot water in the bathroom and plenty of towels that are the nice thick ones.
The only moan was that the air con isn't that good and you can only open the windows slighly.
It's not The Ritz but it does provide a good base for travelling around the city and the local area. Useful infomation in the lobby and staff who try to sort out any problem you have. They also have seccure parking.
Breakfast is a case of eat as much as you want to off the hot and cold shelf.
No need for taxis or buses as the hotel is right in the middle of the big stations.
Very Very Very Not Bad
Arrived early in the afternoon so had no trouble getting one of the 70 free parking spaces. For those arriving too late (car park appeared full by about 18:00), a discount voucher for the nearby NCP is provided, which apparently lets you park overnight for £6.
The hotel is located in the lower half of an impressively tall building, a stone's throw from the posh end of the shopping district.
One of the few gripes was the fact that you have to swipe your room key-card before being able to summon the lifts. This is presumably to stop misuse by non-guests, but is a bit of a pain. Especially when, like me, you try to stop the lift door closing only to have it trap your fingers. I've never previously encountered a lift which didnt have a sensor to detect people or things in the way, but this one didn't so beware - especially if you take kids.
Room was impressively large with enormous windows & just the occasional stain or cigarette damage to soft furnishings, but all looked as if it had been well laundered since.
Unlike a certain previous guest (see earlier reviews) we didn't have to struggle especially hard to escape from the bed linen in the morning!
Great Location, Awful Rooms
I'm a big fan of Premier Travel Inns however this proved to be an ugly duckling. The location was great (bang opposite Harvey Nichols) however the rooms were somewhat uncomfortable. The duvet was tucked under the matress as the duvet cover was loose-if you don't like to be squashed in to bed you will hate it as you will end up inside the duvet cover!! Take your earplugs if you stay a Saturday night as the Church bells next door will give you a loud awakening at 8am on a Sunday morning. The lifts rarely worked and the bar was hardly open so I won't be in a hurry to return...
Great value for money
This hotel is excellent value for money. Town centre 5 minutes walk away as is the MEN Arena. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Breakfast was a help yourself buffet with plenty available. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Definitely would stay here again and have been recommending it to everyone since our return.
Good position,comfortable and clean
As name suggests very good for the men arena and central manchester with free parking. Nice size room with king size bed, comfortable and clean. Quick check in with friendly staff. Good room rate but does not include breakfast. We had breakfast toward the end of the opening time and the self service was quite sparse so not good value. Would stay here again.

... s and drank beer while watching Paul cook his version of paella. It was excellent. While the kids played on their Kindles and petted Bob T. Dog, the adults talked and caught up. Four hours and many beers, bottles of wine and a bottle of Angelica port later, we got on the train back to Manchester. The trip was not without an additional member though, Paul and Carole let us borrow a suitcase as we were in deep trouble with all of the things we had to take. ...

For the first time this week we woke to rain – but it didn't matter too much as we were leaving to go home. The coach came to collect us on time and after fetching other travellers from local hotels, we arrived at Luqa Airport in good time for our flight home. With a departure time of 12.30, I’d booked lunch for us on the plane and it was very tasty. This time ...
