Hi, was going to a party in Leeds Centre and didn’t want to spend a lot on a hotel and found a great rate here. Was really impressed with the room, it was really nicely decorated as well as very clean and it had everthing you would need. It also only cost us £3.50 to get into town which was cheaper than I expected. The grab and go Breakfast was great too!! Definately reccomend.

“My only choice for Manchester”
Reviewed 9 June 2012
Our first visit to Manchester and we booked Roomz based on tripadvisors’ reviews. One of the best decisions we made for this trip. The location was wonderful and the room/apartment was modern, well equipped and superbly comfortable. We stayed for 3 nights in a very nice room on the fourth floor and upon chatting with the wonderful Joanna at reception, we asked that upon our return in about 8 days time (we were taking a car and doing some travelling to lake District, etc) whether she could allocate us a bigger apartment in terms of floor space as we would be doing our packing for our departure. She took time to understand our needs and promised to do whatever she could.
When we returned for our second leg stay 8 days later and although she was on leave, she had left word that we be allocated another room (also on the fourth floor as we requested) and this turned out to be exactly what we wanted. All the rooms in the hotel are of different sizes and configurations but based on both of the rooms we had, they are of excellent standard. We had absolutely no problems with noise. The staff (including Joanna) were all friendly and helpful. The grab and go breakfast was good – pastries were of excellent standard and the coffee machine was good enough (not starbucks quality but hey .. its complimentary throughout the day) and there was a huge selection of different teas.
This on top of being what I considered a very reasonable rate – I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anybody and certainly, this will be my only choice when I visit Manchester next.
