A great find - TripAdvisor Extract

We stayed on a Saturday night and were given a huge 2 bed apartment. Wi-Fi is free, there’s a decent lounge bar, breakfast is very reasonable at £10, and its very close to Piccadilly, the Arndale, and all of the theatres. Staff were friendly and we would definitely stay again

A sparkling find - TripAdvisor Extract

A splendid find! Very close to Piccadilly Station and central shops, this magnificent old building has been stunningly transformed. High ceilings, huge glass partitions, sparkling lights all make the reception and restaurant area both trendy and welcoming. Our party of four was upgraded to a seventh floor penthouse apartment which we were loathe to leave! Accommodation could not be bettered; we plan to return.

Wonderful Conversion - TripAdvisor Extract

This is a great location. We had the reference point of nearby Piccadilly station. The accommodation is spacious and remarkably quiet. The public areas are also large and restful. Simply a very pleasant place to stay.

Daughters Graduation - TripAdvisor Extract

We needed two rooms as her sister was also attending. This Aparthotel worked out much cheaper than the neighbouring Premier Inn- and they rather nicely upgraded us to a Penthouse. We also appreciated an extended checkout time. Very comfortable, very modern. Fabulous view over Manchester city centre. Bed was comfortable, sheets high thread cotton. Heating easy to adjust. Lighting quite good for a hotel. Quiet. Staff were lovely-that Northern friendliness

“Better than ever” - TripAdvisor Extract

We have stated here many times over the past 10 years and always been happy. We stayed again yesterday with family in a two-bedroom apartment. The hotel looks like it has been upgraded recently and our apartment was spotlessly clean and spacious with a fully equipped kitchen and large lounge. The staff are very professional and friendly and the location is perfect. A bargain and highly recommended.

“THE PLACE to stay in Manchester” - TripAdvisor Extract

Just spent a lofifely 2 day break at the Place, we first stayed here last year when our son and daughter-in-law held their wedding reception that was amazing (if your looking for a wedding venue it Delivers), food/apartments/staff fantastic. So when we wanted somewhere to stay while browsing the Xmas markets it had to be The Place, and again it didn't disappoint, first class staff - excellent, the apartments lovely, food exceptional and within easy walking distance of the Xmas markets, shops and bars and Piccadilly rail station on the door step, give this PLACE a try, would definitely stay here again.

- December 2014

“Perfect” - TripAdvisor Extract

5 colleagues on a city/shopping break. Although the room wasnt ready as we arrived on 7am flight, they kept our bags. Same again when we checked out at 11am 3 days later. We thought the apartment was perfect for our needs. Spotless rooms & bedding. 2mins from Piccadilly train station which was perfect.

"Fantastic" - TripAdvisor Extract

Wow! A small group of us stayed here to go to a gig, see the Christmas market and partake in a small amount of shopping. It is a very short walk from Piccadilly train station. The reception area is busy, beautifully decorated with an air of elegance to it. The reception staff were very courteous and helpful with a swift check in. The apartment was great. Large entrance, lovely spacious king size room with en-suite. The beds were SO comfortable - one of the best hotel beds I've slept in. The lounge was a good size, with tv, dining table, Freeview box. IPod docking station and lamps for a choice of lighting. The kitchen was well equipped with a fridge, full size freezer, cooker, and plenty of crockery. Tea, coffee and a small bottle of milk was provided. Overall - a fab stay in a great apartment - we just wished we'd booked for longer. Would highly recommend and would definitely book again.

“Overnight Stay” - TripAdvisor

Just returned from an overnight stay to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We arrived early and left our bags with reception until our room was available. Once we returned we continued with check in which was quick and the receptionist was very friendly and informative. Bags brought through and we then went up to our room. We were on the 1st floor. The apartment was very spacious. Two double rooms one with en suite, open plan kitchen, dining and living area. The rooms were very clean and nice large towels supplied. Love the bare brick and metalwork. We have booked again for May next year. Would definitely recommend.

- December 2014

“Great apartment hotel with parking” - TripAdvisor Extract

This 1867 former warehouse has retained many of the original features such as the vaulted ceilings and cast iron columns; this gives the apartments that extra style. Well-appointed and very spacious (2 bedroom apartment) this apartment gives all you need for a weekend or longer. Underground car parking for a reasonable charge (£9/day) is an added advantage especially given the fairly central location and if you are travelling by train it's a 5 min walk from Piccadilly Station. The airy open design means the building is not cramped.

- December 2014

"What a Fabulous Find" - TripAdvisor Extract

We stayed in a 2-bedroomed apartment, which had 2 large double bedrooms, one en-suite and one bathroom. A huge hall, a large dining/living area and a fully equipped kitchen. Windows looking out toward Piccadilly Station. The place is so handy for so many reasons. Very close to Piccadilly station within a 3-4 minute walk, but at the same time there is on-site parking. The reception presents as a fresh, contemporary hotel. Well-decorated, welcoming and very professional staff. There's also a bistro. Handy for shopping and particularly the Northern Quarter bars. A small bottle of milk and teabags/sugar sachets are provided. Fluffy towels, large comfortable beds, very clean, loads of space, great to get-together with friends. Try it!

“An overall wonderful place to stay!” - TripAdvisor Extract

“Best weekend in Manchester ever!” - TripAdvisor Extract

Myself and a group of friends make an annual trip to Manchester every year and have stayed in various apartments. I can honestly say this has been the best stay ever! Lovely clean spacious apartments, but our stay was made complete by the wonderful service and hospitality

“Lovely Apartmement” - TripAdvisor Extract

I stayed here in November and had a 2 bedroom apartment. The location is perfect for city centre and shopping. Upon arrival there is a manned reception with friendly and helpful staff who explained everything we needed to know. There is a bar and a restaurant. I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend these apartments. Bright, clean and comfortable and perfect city centre location.

- November 2014

“Fabulous Aparthotel” - TripAdvisor Extract

Just returned from a 3 night/4 day city break 2 Adults & 3 Children. From the moment we arrived until our departure I cannot speak highly enough about this aparthotel. Firstly location is superb - right beside Piccadilly Train Station which is also the pickup point for the free Metro bus service which operates around the city. Staff - superb SO friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Food - excellent. Cleanliness - very clean and everything required was available in the apartment. Well done The Place and hope to return soon.

- November 2014

“Great for Lunch” - Guest Review

We had a family lunch here after a morning of shopping and it's great if you want a quieter place of the main stretch to sit back. The staff were really helpful. Also good is the location being very close to the station so not far to saunter after a couple of glasses of wine.

- October 2014

“Meeting Room” - Guest Review

If you're looking to hold a meeting in Manchester I would highly recommend The Place Aparthotel. Our meeting was held in one of their deluxe apartments which gave us a very private and welcoming atmosphere for our clients. Everything we asked for was set up and ready for us and anything else we required the staff were very accommodating and supportive. Lunch was excellent. All we had to do was concentrate on the subject of the meeting, the staff had taken care of everything else. The price was very competitive and we will certainly be using the Place Aparthotel for any future meetings.

- October 2014

“Super Accommodation” - Guest Review

Great location for Piccadilly station and shopping. Lovely apartment with great kitchen facilities if you wanted to stay in and eat. Got this for a really good deal and would love to go back. Breakfast super, really nice restaurant with great service - can certainly recommend these apartments

“Great Stay” - Guest Review

Pleasantly surprised by this gorgeous aparthotel at a very central location, just next to Piccadilly. Very friendly staff, contemporary decor and lovely spacious apartments. Breakfast was very good at a very attractive price. Certainly can recommend this place.

“Awesome Aparthotel” - Guest Review

By far the nicest hotel I have stayed at in England. The staff were helpful, the rooms were spotless and I really do mean spotless. One of the best nights sleeps away from home, and breakfast I have to say was faultless. I wouldn't hesitate in booking here again, I like everything about this hotel.

- October 2014

“Loved it! Great location” - Guest Review

It was great. A lovely apartment, very well appointed. Plenty of room (huge actually). The kitchen was lovely. The parking at £9 per day was well worth it. It is under the property and it is programmed onto your swipe card so you can come and go as often as you like. The location is really good, just near Piccadilly Station.

- October 2014

“A Civil Partnership Beyond Perfection!” - Guest Review

We chose The Place mainly because this is the hotel where we always stay during our regular trips to Manchester. The building is very beautiful and the apartments are decorated very well, containing everything one could possibly need for a short city break away. The day itself was beyond perfect, Many guests commented how wonderful the staff had been, especially those serving the evening meal. The whole event really did run like clockwork. And as for the food itself... amazing! There really is no way you could be disappointed by choosing The Place Aparthotel as the venue for your wedding or civil partnership. Thank you so much. Our day was beyond perfect!

“One of the best Manchester hotels” - Guest Review

I've been working on assignment in Manchester for the past 2.5 years. Over that time I've have stayed in most of Manchester's hotel's and serviced apartments. Through experience, The Place is without doubt my favourite. I have stayed there now for a total of 3 months over the past few years. The rooms are excellent as are the staff and the food. Great location, great quality and best of all, excellent value for money. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

- September 2014

“Fabulous Place!” - Guest Review

Fabulous hotel in a great location. Busy city hotel that was just perfect. Very impressed with these apartments, spacious and well equipped. We had booked a one bedroom but ended up with a two bedroom. I would definitely stay here again. The car park was also a plus.

- September 2014

“Great location” - Guest Review

Myself and 4 girlfriends stayed here for 2 nights for a city break. The accommodation is perfectly positioned a short walk from the station and the city centre is easily accessible on foot. The apartments themselves are spacious and clean. And I slept on the comfiest mattress I've ever encountered in a hotel.

- September 2014

“Great apartments & location!” - Guest Review

A group of 11 of my friends recently spent 2 nights in the Place for a city break. We booked 2 apartments one sleeping 5 and the other sleeping 6. The apartments are really well equipped plenty of room for all 11 to have drinks before our evening out. We found the beds to be really comfortable, bathrooms great with loads of clean towels provided for all guests. Check in and out was quick & efficient all reception staff really helpful calling taxis or providing directions when required. The hotel is perfectly situated right next to the train station and close to the city centre shops, restaurants and bars. Thanks for a great stay.

“Wonderful Wedding Experience” - “Wonderful Wedding Experience”

Stayed 13/9/14 as part of a wedding party and had a wonderful experience. The staff, food and apartment were first rate and this was the best wedding I have attended. We stayed in a penthouse apartment which was well worth the price; the penthouses being serviced by an exterior exclusive 7th floor glass lift. Will definitely visit this establishment again.

- September 2014

A truly unique venue - wonderful” - Guest Review

My wife and I got married at The Place on 23rd August this year. The biggest compliment we can pay is to say we would recommend this hotel to anybody. From start to finish the whole day was superb and we will be forever grateful. The beds are comfortable and there is a homely feel once inside. The Penthouses offer fantastic views of the Manchester area. All the staff are attentive and every guest left with a smile on their faces commenting on a fantastic day at a fantastic venue. In terms of food, the portion sizes are brilliant and well-presented given the mass catering they have to do and the mini burgers are a must when choosing from the canapé selection. This is a truly amazing place.

- August 2014

“Birthday Treat” - “Birthday Treat”

We stayed at The Place for birthdays as a treat. We booked a double bed apartment & got an upgrade to the Penthouse. It was very spacious. 2 terraces one shared & the other was a private one from the bedrooms. All staff were friendly & polite. Will definitely be booking again. Highly recommended.

- August 2014

“Our Perfect Wedding” - Guest Review

My now husband, Rob and I chose to have our wedding at The Place after we viewed it for the first time. The day went perfectly and was organised to perfection, we couldn't of wished for a more perfect day. if you want a wedding venue that's truly unique in Manchester with a perfect day and staff that are highly skilled, real attention to detail and professional yet personal and caring about your big day then don't hesitate to book this as your venue. Thank you again to every single member of staff that worked on our perfect wedding, we'll never forget the parts you all played.

- August 2014

“Fantastic Wedding Venue” - Guest Review

Our daughter got married at The Place and we were really delighted with how well it all went. Every member of staff was polite, helpful and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is spotlessly clean, well looked after and the staff all work hard to maintain it. The Bistro is a stunning room and the food at the reception was very good and many of our guests commented on how much they had enjoyed it, the breakfast menu is also very good. We would certainly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue or just as somewhere to stay if you're visiting the city.

- August 2014

“Very Good for What we Wanted” - TripAdvisor Extract

Apartment had plenty of space, high ceilings, it was clean and well furnished, everything we needed for a short stay. Good car parking on site. Good breakfast buffet, bistro looked nice but we didn't try it. Excellent central location I'm pretty fussy and this place was very good for me and my grown-up family. - July 2014

“Love our Room” - TripAdvisor Extract

Me and my family visited Manchester last week and we decided to stay in The Place. We loved the apartment; we had a large living room, kitchen and 2 bedrooms. The Wi-Fi was great and we love the facilities in the hotel.    - July 2014

“Lovely Place to Stay” - TripAdvisor

Was not disappointed. Myself and 3 friends had a 1 night stay in The Place. On arrival, the desk staff were very helpful. The apartment was better than expected, plenty of room, the kitchen was stocked with complimentary tea, coffee, sugar, milk. The bedrooms were very spacious and clean. Overall an excellent place to stay and very local to the heart of Manchester. - July 2014

“This is the Future” - TripAdvisor

The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, their cheerful approach was uplifting. Rooms fantastic, a great innovation that has been well thought out. The heat was stifling but fans were available on request. We will be back. - July 2014

“Fab Stay” - TripAdvisor Extract

We stayed in a 5 bedroom apartment last week and was very impressed by the spacious comfort and design of this fab aparthotel. It was tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. It had everything you could possibly need although we only stayed the one night so never really needed to use the facilities. However, it is ideally situated round the corner from the train station and very central for the city centre for all the shops bars and restaurants.  We've booked to stay here again later in the year. - July 2014

“Fantastic Oasis” - TripAdvisor

I have stayed in many so called Aparthotels whilst on business and this one is by far the best. In fact, for the money it is quite amazing. It may look like an old factory from the outside but inside has been revamped to a high standard. The service is also very good compared to other big budget hotels in the city centre. If you are looking for a place near the train and the city then this is ideal.

- June 2014

“Best Wedding Venue in Manchester” - TripAdvisor Extract

As soon as we viewed The Place Aparthotel we knew it was the venue for us. We felt that The Place Hotel really is value for money but does not compromise on the service or quality it delivers. On the day, the service and the professionalism of the staff was faultless. The food was wonderful and plentiful. Jade and Lyndsey were both very professional and helpful leading up to the wedding day and the gentleman who took over for the wedding breakfast/evening was extremely professional and kind. Family and friends have all expressed how lovely and unusual the venue was and I cannot recommend The Place enough both as a venue and a hotel. The pictures we have from the rooftop are amazing!  We have many happy memories and photos and look forward to visiting again soon. - May 2014

“Brilliant Stay with Friends” - TripAdvisor Extract

5 friends stayed at the apartments on Sunday and we were more than impressed with our stay which was much more than expected for what we paid. Clean, tidy, comfy beds with thick white towels. Plenty room with a big kitchen which was accommodating for pre-drinks before going out into town. The bar area is also really nice. One thing that we noticed and should be complimented on is helpful and friendly staff. The girls were lovely on check-in. The same service on check-out. Andrew, Mohammed and Antonio were also very helpful and friendly after our night. All in all a brilliant stay. Have recommended to others already and looking forward to staying with friends again. - April 2014
