This is my 2nd review of accommodation in Manchester this year, I briefly visited back in February for a day trip and now, like then, me and my partner got an 'apartment'/hotel room.
Roomzzz is pretty much round the corner from the last place I stayed at, it was a few streets away from Oxford Road rail station, which is where we arrived. So its not hard to find.
The property is adjacent the Chinatown area, where you can see the Chinese gate up the street. Its a fantastic location to be. Straight roads lead you to good tourists spots. A straight walk from the entrance along Princes Street will take you to St Peters Square where you can catch a tram, see the Manchester Central Library or the Manchester town hall. Go a straight walk up Portland road and you can reach Piccadilly Gardens. There are plenty of pubs, bars, shops and attractions within a 15min walk in almost all directions, so its a cracking area to stay in.
1st impressions of the property were great, pretty modern. We were greeted at the front reception by smiles and helpful information, and actually arrived very early so we kept our bags there and headed out for some exploring. On return around 3ish we were able to go into our room.
The room was massive!, 'a Liberty Suite' is what we went for, plenty of storage space around. Before we booked I wanted a room with alot more natural light, so this room we had was great. We had a view from the window, up Faulkner Street towards the Chinese Gate. The traffic wasn't a problem and we didn't have any disruptions any night (although we didn't stay over a weekend), and had a great sleep in very comfortable beds. There was plenty of amenities in the room, iron/iron board, rain shower, dishwasher, cutlery, kettle, microwave& oven hobs, so you could buy things (from many nearby shops) and cook in your room if you prefer, although saying that, there is a small selection of snacks available on the ground floor to buy and coffee was free anytime at the coffee machine. The windows in the room were not able to be opened, but the air conditioning was brilliant for when it was to warm.
We did have a breakfast included but it wasn't like a usual hotel, you just head to the ground floor& help yourself to pastries, coffee, milk, fruit etc. I only had cereal which was 50p, but I'm sure everything else was included in a breakfast price.
We found this a great place to stay, and got it at a great price. Overall I would definitely return here. Its such a central location to what Manchester has to offer, and if you go for a Liberty Suite then you won't be disappointed.
