This bright and colourful hostel offers the basics for cheap in Manchester’s laid-back Castlefield area. Accommodation options comprise a mix of private rooms and dorms, while modern shared-spaces and a lively bar give the hostel a friendly, social vibe. Perhaps most importantly for a hostel, free wi-fi is included.
Motel One Manchester-Royal Exchange
Sleek, modern and minimal, Motel One offers style on a budget. Besides its trendy bar, which boasts a wide range of cocktails and craft beer, and stately façade, the hotel’s biggest plus is its central location right next to Manchester’s huge Arndale shopping centre. Facilities include free wi-fi, in-room TVs and tea and coffee facilities.
SACO Manchester - Piccadilly
SACO serviced apartments offer an affordable option for families seeking a few home comforts in a central Manchester location. With internet access, a fully-equipped kitchen, living areas and TVs, the apartments have everything you’ll need to cater for and entertain the whole family.
If you’re heading to Manchester for a special occasion, Hotel Gotham will set an impressive scene. As well as being surrounded by bars and restaurants, the hotel comes with its own private members’ club (open to hotel guests and members only) with a trendy rooftop terrace. The nearby Northern Quarter is also packed with yet more bars, pubs and places to eat.
The Lowry Hotel, Manchester
With its onsite spa, 24-hour room service and gourmet restaurant, Manchester’s “first five-star hotel” ticks all the luxury boxes. Yet its practical location, just a walk from the city centre’s main attractions, is perhaps one of the hotel’s best features. Stylish, modern rooms benefit from a mini-bar, fridge and TV.
King Street Townhouse
If you’re looking to splash out, however, the King Street Townhouse, one of Manchester’s swankiest hotels, is the place to be seen. Its infinity spa pool looks directly onto the iconic clock tower of Manchester’s neo-Gothic Town Hall.
You’ll also find some of the city’s most impressive hotels converted from Victorian townhouses, stern former banks and even an old school house in Manchester city centre. The Midland and the Radisson Blu, both housed in Edwardian landmarks, and the Premier Inn Manchester Central, are all an easy walk away from two of the city’s finest music venues, the Manchester Opera House and the Albert Hall.
Just 8 kilometres (5 miles) from Manchester city centre, Trafford is where you’ll find the mighty Theatre of Dreams, a place to live out your footie fantasies on a stadium tour before dribbling your way to Hotel Football.
A goal kick away from the stadium, this footy-focused hotel has a pitch on the rooftop and unrivalled views of Old Trafford stadium, so even if you can’t make the match, you’ll be able to hear it from your room. And if football isn’t your thing, tackle the 200-plus shops at the Trafford Centre instead.
Just across the water from Trafford you’ll find Salford Quays. This new home for the BBC has no shortage of hotels to rest your head after a day spent exploring the sites of Manchester – and Salford itself.
Local activities include heading over to MediaCityUK and joining a fascinating BBC Tour to see behind the scenes of TV favourites such as BBC Breakfast, A Question Of Sport, and Mastermind. Alternatively, have a wander through The Lowry, an art gallery and theatre dedicated to the famous matchstick man painter.
Cheap Manchester accommodation options in this area include Travelodge and Holiday Inn, while you can also enjoy a luxury stay in the five-star Lowry Hotel. Just be sure to book in advance to bag the cheapest deals in Manchester.
