Now we’ve been telling you about our current long stay deal here at Roomzzz and as you know we don’t like to blow our own trumpet…. so here’s a review from one of our guests…
IdWicked from Dehli who stayed at Leeds City West wrote:-
“I stayed in this hotel for more than 4 months on a business trip. From day 1 i felt like it was home away from home. The rooms were brilliant and clean (Bigger than any other hotel) , every room had a kitchenette (No other Hotel provides) and it was way economical than any other hotel i looked for in Leeds.
The best part of the hotel was the staff. They are always there to make sure that i was comfortable and had no issues what so ever. They even upgraded me from a Standard room to a Superior room for no extra cost.
I would like to record my thanks and appreciation for all the employees of Roomzzz Apart hotel starting from David, Guntars, Zuzanna , Haidee, Innocent, Vikas, Angad, Susanne , Travis and Shine . Thanks Guys…”

You see good things really do come in threes…..
Boasting quality accommodation in Manchester, and the same unique combination of serviced apartments and boutique hotels in Leeds, our doors have had their fair share of celebrity names walk through them. But last week our attention was focused on the stars lining up at the National Television Awards in London.
This year saw the BBC’s Waterloo Road pick up Best Drama. It’s set in Rochdale, a few miles from Roomzzz Aparthotel – Manchester City, making us more than a little proud. And, although somewhat further away, Ant & Dec continued to represent the North on a big scale, collecting the coveted Best Entertainment Presenter award for a tenth time.
Past victors have included esteemed Yorkshire-men, such as Michael Parkinson, Manchester-born icons like John Thaw, and Ricky Tomlinson, a latter-day Lancastrian legend. And, programme wise, the historic Shires have taken home silverware thanks to Last of the Summer Wine, Coronation Street and Cold Feet to name but three.
Leeds, Manchester, and their surrounding areas all have established histories when it comes to filming. The latter has given us small screen memories in the shape of This Life, with Looking For Eric, Alfie, 24 Hour Party People and Marvel’s forthcoming Captain America amongst the recent feature films to use its streets. And, as for the former, mentioning Spooks, Five Days, The Damned United and the acclaimed Red Riding trilogy proves it rivals that neighbour over the hills.
So, next time you’re thinking of these fair towns, don’t leave it at shopping, clubs, food and sport. You could run into a host of personalities when perusing a boutique, or queuing at the bar, so why not give yourself a little more time by booking an overnight stay. Our centrally located sites offer unrivalled access to all the amenities you, and countless familiar faces want to make the most of, so you never know who the person in the Roomzzz next door could be.
