The Penthouse Apartment Hotel
Ranked #93 of 121 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed 10 May 2009

Stayed here simply as somewhere to sleep as it was offered on laterooms for about 60 quid - would have been absolutely gutted if I'd paid full whack!! Views over Manchester were fantastic (think we were on 22 or 23rd floor) but the windows were filthy and what you could see was a bit sketchy. Had to meet bloke with key which proved a bit of a pain having to wait around when we were already late (admittedly our fault!) but bloke, Darryl, was pleasant and happy to stay to show us how everything in apartment worked and tell us where things where which we thought nice.

Apartment itself was okay - had it's own secure parking which was great - but a bit dated and grubby. Smelt of an ex smokers pad which put me off a bit. Bedding seemed clean enough. Kitchen floor tiles were cracked and the sofas in the lounge have definitely seen better days!

Okay as a crash pad if you're hammered and going into city centre (right next to the MEN arena which is exactly where we wanted to be) but really wouldn't venture for a romantic weekend there!

If you are going to book this hotel please be aware that it looks nothing like the pictures on the website! also there is no reception area to check which is slightly off putting. the apartment we were given was slightly dated and the tiles on the kitchen floor were mostly cracked.
we were assured by the owner we had hot water to then discover that we had none and were expected to fill the boiler system by our selves and the window kept blowing open all night and we had to keep trying to close it which meant us climbing on a window ledge 23 story's high!
finally we cancelled another apartment to move to this one BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!

Pros & Cons! Firstly don't be thrown by the photos on the website or the word 'hotel'. After twice requesting by telephone one of the contemporary apartments pictured on the website, as oppose to the more traditional style, I was told all apartments were decorated similarly, then on arrival I was disappointed to find that although the apartment was fine, fairly modern but basic, it was nothing like either of those pictured and I would now consider this false advertising. We also found it alittle inconvenient that as this is not actually a hotel there is no reception or anywhere to leave bags, so we had to kill a few hours whilst carting bags around until we were able to be let in. On the up side the location is fantastic for shopping or MEN etc, very central, and the views over Manchester are great (22nd Floor). I would therefore recommend these apartments for location/view/value for money but to avoid disappointment don't view the website photos first.
