Cheap and cheerful (and drunks)!

Having stayed at the London Heathrow StayCity for several months during the weekdays, I decided to choose the Manchester branch to stay for a couple of days. Arrival to the automatic underground carpark was a pain, save yourself some time and use the carpark next to the hotel. Staff are no use, well that's if they turn up. Staff generally gather round and chat and each time a non-drunk guest walks past they all stare. Very rude indeed. Majority of the guest are there to get drunk and sleep it off. For that purpose the hotel is perfect. For anyone else choose another hotel. The actual apartment was well equipped, and also had a washer/dryer. So in terms of facilities it was great. Its a shame the hotel doesn't do enough to control the drunks littering the hotel corridors and reception areas. Also they need to give training to their staff on hospitality.

Pros: Location.
Location: Close to Northern quarter and bars.
Three of us stayed three nights, location perfect for nightlife, train station and city centre. The only thing I would fault was the size of room and we had to pay for a luggage locker as we got there before 3pm check in time. Also no toilets until you got to your apartment.

Great place - awful location

Pros: Everything internally
Cons: Greater reception/entrance security.
Location: Awful location. Everything was a 5-10 min walk away - through desolation. Fine if you are young and fit. Not great for families or business stays
Great place but awful location. Doesn't feel safe and approach from the station is dreadful: rough potholed pavements are cruel to wheeled suitcases! Nighttime punctuated with shouting and sounds of bottles being thrown. Made sure I was never outside after dark in a business suit!

Internet did not work and it is quite embarrassing when you have work to do... Bed was not good. Very basic kitchen. Bathrooms were quite spacious and modern but one of the light did not work. During the weekend this place is noisy. But staff is nice and helpful.

Check in was chaotic due to large amount of guests trying to check in at same time with only one member of staff on desk. Otherwise, apartment was clean and tidy and in a great location within walking distance of city centre.

Fine for the price but wifi needs to be better.

Cons: Wifi / broadband bandwidth needs improving.
Location: Located a main road in an older industrial area. Somewhat rundown with boarded up buildings next door, but it was only 10 min walk to city centre.
I booked a 1 bed serviced apartment for a single night business trip. I was upgraded to a larger 2 bed serviced apartment (free) upon arrival which was gratefully received. Some noise during the night from air con units of nearby commercial properties, but overall the apartment was pleasant, largely clean, comfortable bed, generally spacious. Friendly reception staff. They do however need to improve the wifi capability. It was patchy and frequently 'dropped out' especially during Skype & FaceTime meetings. Having superior broadband bandwidth is very important these days, especially for business trips where I need reliable connectivity. I will probably try the other serviced apartments in the area, next time, and compare the experience.
