      Historical Traveler Reviews ibis Manchester Centre Princess Street Hotel

      Excellent value

      from

      Excellent hotel, exceeded my expectations for a budget hotel. Room had air conditioning, was a nice size, and had a very clean bathroom. No tub, but the shower was roomy, glass doors, and great water pressure. Good location, I walked from the Oxford Road station with a bag with no trouble. Had a slight problem with the bathroom, called the front desk and someone was up to the room within three minutes, problem was fixed within two more. Front desk staff were all very helpful with walking directions and taxis. Good job!

      Room for improvement

      from

      Shunted from the other Ibis hotel on arrival without an explanation. Nevertheless, the staff were pleasant and helpful. The cafe is basic but the food is decent. Although the waitress was truly hopeless... Cold buffet for breakfast a little overpriced.

      The rooms are a fair size with a compact bathroom. Very clean but with dreadful views over a building site. Location is excellent and the nightly rate is very good.

      Overall a safe bet and good value for money.

      Easily walkable to men arena

      from

      we stayed at Ibis charles street on a saturday evening as we had tickets to see Rod stewart at the MEN arena,concerned about location to MEN i was surprised at how near it was .

      Rooms ok good basic hotel for 51.95 a night for a double room

      bathrooms rather groovy ,showers very powerful but toilets made awful and very loud noise just like aeroplanes .

      reception area doubles as bar ,greeting area and breakfast room

      bar remained open until very early hours of the morning as there were several hen parties staying but we didn't hear any disturbances whilst we were there .

      no full cooked english breakfast only continental choices but very good value for 4.95

      plenty of eating places around hotel

      Car parking opposite hotel 9.00 for 24 hours

      girls on reception were very helpful we were over charged by 5 per room which was swiftly refunded and many apologies.

      all in all a good place to stay for concerts etc

      Adequate value

      from

      We stayed for two nights in April 2005. Location is convenient to University of Manchester, but is a lengthy walk to the city center. Room was small but clean, and bathroom is tiny. You get what you pay for. Service at times is nonexistent (often only one person behind desk who is responsible for phones, people checking in and out and concierge duties) and bathroom has flimsy towels and does not offer shampoo or conditioner (stall only has a pump with lotion that is labeled as dual purpose shower gel/shampoo). Value is acceptable at about 50 GBP, although we were charged (without notification) 2 more GBP than we were quoted in our reservation made directly with the hotel over the Internet. Hotel, however, is within walking distance from the train station which connects conveniently to the Manchester airport.

      Good Deal - Nice location

      from

      Stayed at the Ibis last year, I found it a bit difficult to locate, actually walked right by it once and ended up in back of it. The room was large, clean and quiet. I think it was worth the price ... location in China town is good and not that far from the Piccadilly Train station. I would stay here again. The people were friendly enough, but a bit rushed.

      Good for the money

      from

      Chose this hotel on the basis of location and the reviews on this site. It met my expectations and then some. Location is great - near the train station, Chinatown, museums and was within the core of Manchester. We had a room facing the courtyard and it was quiet. Especially nice, was that we were able to check in at 10 AM after a long flight from the US and didn't have to wait until the afternoon. Bathrooms were truly novel and the water pressure in the shower was great. Breakfast was adequate and OK for the price.

      Potpourri on the bed was a nice touch, if only because it was unexpected, given the sterility of the rest of the place. Only beef is that all the rooms only have double beds. We could have used two twins and these are not available.

      Good place to stay

      from

      We spent a weekend in the IBIS Manchester. Great location with shopping facilities, public transport and a lot of pubs and clubs within walking distance. We had a really large and absolutely clean room, coffee and tea for free. Nice bar with little restaurant in the lobby and friendly, helpful staff. Great value for the money, would definitely go there again.

      I would stay there again

      from

      Not exactly central but easy walk to train station, shops, restaurants, etc. University area nearby so lively buzz to area. Rooms and rest of hotel nice and clean, extremely neat bathroom appears to be factory-made in one piece then lowered in by helicopter. Hotel staff a bit stuck-up but polite enough. Didn't eat in restaurant/bar but looks nothing to write home about.Strange that the previous reviewer mentions 05:00 fire alarm, I had one too at 03:00. Either their alarm system really needs fixing or the night staff get bored easy <-:

      More like 3*

      from

      I have stayed at the IBIS UMIST twice and would definately go again.

      The maid service is excellent : rooms really clean, extra laundry, toiletries, coffee, tea etc. left outside if you have a do not disturb sign displayed. The receptionists are also very helpful and friendly.

      The only negative aspects is that the food ain't great (but didn't really expect it to be good) and the 5am fire alarm I experienced during my first stay : not very pleasant especially after a heavy night out! ... but, to be fair to IBIS they were not to blame, rather a dizzy resident.

      Excellent value for money.

      Great Value

      from

      Modern hotel very close to Canal Street and the University. Oxford Street nearby and walking distance to the center - maybe a mile or so.

      Identical rooms with kingsize beds (no twins), built in furniture and terrific modular bathrooms. Modern elevators, good housekeeping.

      Combination cafe and bar on the ground floor was spartan but pleasant with fairly good buffet continental breakfast for 2 pounds. Didn't try the cooked breakfast at 5 pounds. No lobby to speak of. Perfuntory but efficient desk staff. We paid 45 pounds a night per room for 2 and were very pleased.

Their paintings often followed Biblical, Arthurian or Medieval themes, and were noted for their brilliance of colour, attention to detail and almost photographic precision. They strove to portray an idealised vision of classical beauty ...
