The Light ApartHotel, Manchester
Clean, spacious, great view apartment and service
Stayed one day and night only but loved this hotel for its location being central to town, spaciousness, great view and cleanliness. Their front desk staff were all helpful and their small bar was open late and gym was easily accessible too. Small breakfast; coffee served in lobby. Overall enjoyed our short stay here and will return and/or highly recommend to future travelers.

Nice Views and Roomy
Got upgraded for free to a 2 bedroom suite so that was nice. Was on the 10th floor so the views from the balcony were cool. Place is pretty big for the price. You get a living room with full kitchen, fridge and washing machine for clothes. I would definitely stay here again. Plus it's really walkable to other areas such as the Northern Quarter and Castlefields.

Like to go back there again with daily service
Love the building & it's really in the center . The price is reasonable. But we spent 9 nights there & they didn't change the sheets . 2 lifts for 19 floors is not enough

WOW! What an amazing property! An actual place I said multiple times to my friends, "I could live here"! The apartment stayed in was an Executive Apartment, it was amazing, looked and smelled like new, the furnishings were great, beds were comfortable, bathrooms (yes, plural). The views of the city were very amazing. A light continental breakfast was also included, which was an added bonus! Highly recommend this as your place away from home for a stay in Manchester.

Would highly recommend. Only criticism is that the bathroom off the first room had a terrible sulfur and mold smell. Room 56 (I think). Other than that, great stay.
