“Don’t hesitate – book!” – I don’t think we could put it better ourselves! It’s what clmswallow wrote about our Manchester city centre hotel on Tripadvisor…
5 of 5 stars 
Reviewed 13 February 2012
I travel to Manchester 4-5 times a year for work and I will always stay at Roomzzz and not bother looking at other accommodation options because it meets all of my requirements – central, secure parking very nearby, value for money and great customer service provided by the lovely reception staff.

Because work are usually paying I tend to book the cheapest rooms but they are by no means basic. I don’t know of any other hotel where you can stay in such luxurious surroundings at such a low price.

This weekend however I was in Manchester with my boyfriend so we booked The Maxima Suite. If you’re thinking about treating a loved one to a romantic weekend away or just like a bit of extra space then this is the room for you.

Down stairs you’ll find:

A kitchen area complete with dish washer, cutlery, hob, pans, plates – basically everything you would need if you were planning to cook and eat in. The hotel have a pantry in reception so you can buy pizzas, curry sauces, soft drinks etc
A large living space with a couple of sofa’s, a desk, iMac, iPod docking station and a large flat screen TV mounted on the wall
A down stairs bathroom with a rain fall shower and a decent sized bath tub with a TV built into the wall (a great touch!)

And then up a spiral staircase you’ll find your bedroom:

A huge bed
Another toilet so you don’t have to navigate the stairs at night
And a third TV

The rooms at Roomzzz are modern, light and clean.

The grab and go breakfast is great – coffee’s, juices, fruit and freshly baked pastries.

My only small gripe is the outside noise but that comes with staying at any City centre hotel. My boyfriend slept through it but the odd siren or loud groups of people have disturbed my sleep when staying here but not enough for me not to book again but I think it’s something the light sleepers amongst you may want to know about.

Make a reservation, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Leeds City on Trip Advisor!

Skarch from Bangalor stayed with us at Leeds City...

5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 November 2011

My wife and I stayed here for 10 days in October 2011. The location, the room (smart studio) and the staff are all excellent.

One could not ask for a better location in Leeds city centre. It is close to the train station, bus stops, the best shopping and top rated restaurants and pubs.

The smart studio has a king size bed, excellent bathroom, a small sitting area with a view of the city, a very well equipped kitchenette, washing machine & dryer and a Mac Mini which doubles as a TV. The TV swivels 180 degrees to face the bed or the sitting area.

The staff are very friendly and helpful without exception. The housekeeping crew made up our room, bath and kitchenette spic and span everyday!

The property is built on a small lot and therefore the corridors are narrow for large luggage. The fire doors make your task of moving in and out a bit difficult along the narrow halls. The room doors close with a rather loud bang: so a neighbour returning late can wake you up. The wood flooring in our room (301) creaked a lot, probably due to faulty laying. These were minor irritations in an otherwise perfect stay.

Overall, we had an excellent stay and would not hesitate to go back next time.

Back by popular demand!

My wife and I stayed for one night on a city weekend break while dropping our daughter at University. We loved the city centre (very upmarket shopping and nicely priced restaurants) and this aparthotel blew us away. A large modern room with excellent facilities inc fridge, wasing machine and dishwasher. As it happens, we didnt need them but the room was very clean with modern furnishings. There is no breakfast but good coffee, pastries and fruit juice are available in the lobby. We would definitely stay again.

5 of 5 starsReviewed 14 September 2011 
This is our 3rd stay in a year and it was great to be welcomed by Keith again who has always made our stay special. My 13 year old daughter and I stayed on Friday 9 September for a birthday treat to go to The Royal Exchange. She loved everything about the Liberty Suite which had a fantastic bank of large windows around the corner of the building. The view was brilliant and they were all shuttered with black out blinds and sound proofing. There was no noise from the street below. Nearby are loads of mini supermarkets so we made use of the kitchen facilities and it was a bit of a call whether to go to the theatre we were enjoying the room so much. Then of course the hot chocolate machine in the lobby was truly a 13year old’s dream.

On returning we watched a film and there was no noise from other rooms so I wonder about the reviews mentioning noise as the hotel was very busy. Thank you to Keith who made us feel again like valued regular customers. We will be ringing this Friday hoping for a cancellation on Saturday 17th. Fingers crossed.

 
Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous but if your want views of the city ask for a room on the 2nd 3rd or 4th floors. The fifth floor rooms are still great and have loads of velux windows.

PS Don’t forget our Royalty Club… you can sign up for free and get a minimum 10% discount off each stay!
