It had all the attributes of a good hotel (safe reception area, friendly staff, good location) with the added advantage of the ability to cook in the room. It suited me as a lone traveller down to the ground and I think it would be even better for – say – a lone female traveller not wanting to venture around the City Centre in the evening alone.
Furthermore, I stayed in a room right on the street and once the blinds were closed I had absolutely no problem with noise or disturbance.
The (free) WiFi reception was poor but having a Mac to play with sort of made up for that!
Looking forward to a return visit when I next have to stay.

Yesterday we asked our Manchester Facebook fans, ‘which insect is connected to Manchester?’ Someone suggested the Museum Mummy! But no the symbol of Manchester is the bee!
The Manchester bee symbol was adopted during the industrial revolution, a revolution that Manchester was at the heart of. The bee denotes Mancunians hard work and graft during this era and Manchester being a hive of activity in the 19th century. A mosaic hive of bees is depicted on flooring in the Manchester Town Hall.
Bees are known are hard workers with a vital role to play in the ecosystem and the ability for humans and life forms to survive by pollinating crops. The allegorical link to bees relates that during this era, Manchester was a vital economic centre for Britain and many Mancunians were employed in a range of jobs in the city.
Although it is unverifiable, the idiom busy bee may have originated or at least been popularised as a result of Manchester’s adoption of the bee symbol.
The architecture of our Manchester Roomzzz is testament to this era, see photograph below!
