I'm not a fussy person and I hardly ever complain... but this place was just HORRENDOUS. It was supposed to be just a cheap overnight stay before heading to the airport. We had the room on the first floor with a disabled access (not required). We walked in to the room and the first thing which we have noticed was...

This hotel is situated on the busy Trafford Road in Salford, and is conveniently placed for Old Trafford Football Ground and Salford Quays. The hotel itself was basic, you get what you pay for, but it had very good facilities, with tea and coffee available 24 hours, in the dining room area next to the foyer, and snacks (including pizza)...

We booked it as we didn't want something too expensive, and although it clearly says ibis 'budget'.. It definitely was budget, and we still paid £91 which is not on for the disgusting rooms you get. It is like something out of a hospital room. Very basic and not worth the money, if it was around £50 maybe fair enough...

New, clean and basic. Perfect locale to see media city and Manchester United football grounds. Easily accessed by tram from downtown manchester and to all sights. Lobby has basic food for sale along with beverages. Excellent location to overnight.

Although a budget option the rooms were tiny and really basic. You have to be good friends to share a twin room and if you have long legs you probably won't be able to close the toilet door! The shower cubicle is accessed directly from the room too, so no privacy

The rooms were basic as expected but very comfortable for a nights stay. However, the night we stayed there seemed to be some sort of local festival and the amount of noise other people in the hotel were making was horrendous. We returned to our room about 10pm after having watched the man united game and were tired. The noise...

No checking room before handover. Bad smell found in toilet. And wrong room provided (I booked a large bad and they gaved us a 1 double bed with 1 upper decker small bed. One thing is good, staff were patient on my complaint.

Me and my partner have been to lots of Ibis Budget Hotels through-out Eastern Europe, Ireland and the UK and this was by far the worst one. Ibis is usually not a luxury hotel but very reasonably priced good rooms with good service and we've recommended them to friends and family many times. This one was not good though! Our...

Very decent budget hotel, ideal for a cheap night away. We used it for media city, metro station outside hotel for a quick ride to the centre which was about 10mins. It is budget but for £40 for the night it's more than what we expected, everything you need for 1 or 2 nights.

Good location as it's right next to the metro but on a main road so quite loud when trying to sleep. Wouldn't recommend if you're in early stages of a relationship as rooms are very small and the shower is a door right next to the bed.

Thank Sara L
