Positive Reviews

Ideal central location

The Merchants hotel is ideal for visiting Manchester It’s in the heart of the city, walking distance to lots of attractions and not far from Manchester Arena! It’s right by the main shopping street and tons of bars and restaurants Also walking distance are two railway stations, and parking if you need it.

Super friendly staff

The staff goes out of the way to make you feel welcome They can provide recommendations to restaurants and helpful info about the city as well as directions The check-in and check-out process is quick and easy.

Good value for a quick stay

This is a budget hotel, so your expectations need to reflect this For an overnight visit to Manchester, if you aren’t fussy it will meet your needs The location couldn’t be better The staff is excellent and exceeds expectations Breakfast is fine and the rooms are clean and warm.

Negative Reviews

No in-room Wi-Fi

There isn’t in-room Wi-Fi and the Wi-Fi in the common areas isn’t reliable I suppose this isn’t surprising at a budget hotel like this but it certainly would be nice!

Extremely basic rooms

The rooms are very barebones You don’t get Wi-Fi, the TVs are very small (if your room has one) and there are no towels on hand or toiletries Apparently the rooms are going through a refurbishment so some of these details may improve with time. For the price, you’d expect a little more upkeep even at this budget.

Noisy location and hard to sleep

The Merchants is not a quiet hotel, they need to find a way to soundproof it better First thing in the morning you hear the dustbins being emptied and shop deliveries All through the night, especially weekends, you hear people outside partying However, it’s hard to avoid in this central spot.
