Expert review of The Place Apartment Hotel

Around the corner from Piccadilly station, this aparthotel flaunts its Victorian features.

Exposed brickwork, towering iron columns and a light-drenched central glass atrium make this aparthotel memorable. I enjoyed looking out over the canal from my room’s window seat and the flexibility that staying in an apartment offers.

Location: 

On a road just off the approach to Piccadilly train station and just a few minutes’ walk to Piccadilly bus station, the aparthotel is conveniently located for transport links. Manchester’s central shops and restaurants are within walking distance too.

Bedrooms: 

All bedrooms have a well-equipped kitchen and a lounge as standard as well as stunning original features – high exposed brick ceilings, deep recessed windows and supporting iron beams. As the rooms go up in standard, they also go up in size and, if you are planning on spending a lot of time in your room, I would recommend upgrading to a deluxe apartment as they have a large open plan living area. If you choose a deluxe or two bed apartment, ask if you can have one on the sixth floor with a glass ceiling. For a treat, the - currently being refurbished - duplex penthouses are also impressive and have roof terraces. I hope that this refurbishment extends across the whole hotel as some of the bathrooms and bits of paintwork are starting to look a little tired.

Public areas: 

The large sleek reception area with lime green and red seats, and the central glass atrium with palm trees are impressive spaces.

Eating and drinking: 

The vast banqueting suite is where guests eat breakfast but for the rest of the day it is geared up for functions and events so I would cook in your room or venture into the centre of Manchester. The VIP bar next to the central atrium is a good spot for a quick drink but with so many restaurants and bars nearby, I wouldn’t stay for more than one.

Service: 

Friendly and efficient.

Who stays there: 

Groups enjoy sharing apartments and splitting the cost as well as the hotel’s central location. During the week, 10-20% of the apartments are rented to guests staying for business on long-term letting deals

Price advice: 

Breakfast is charged at £5 per person extra if you pre-book it, £12 if you pay for it on the day - I would buy provisions in to eat in the room. The hotel offers 60 parking spaces which cost £9 for 24 hours.

Pros: 
Lovely original Victorian features
The flexibility of having a kitchen and living area
Cons: 
Some rooms are looking tired
