The apartments we booked were going at a rate of 200 pounds a night with 2 rooms. With the extremely Mat Salleh sized couches you could fit in a max of 2 couples and 2 more in the place.
All apartments vary a little in size and layout but you get the picture. Comes with washer, dryer, full kitchen appliances and most surprisingly to Malaysians, a full set of cutlery that hadn't been nicked!
Wide enough ledges to sit at the window with a good bottle of wine and some Marvin Gaye in the background. Although the view will probably be a drunk Englishman trying to piss in the nondescript canal out back.
Its 7 minutes walk to Piccadilly Park and about 10 to Arndale Mall and about 15 minutes to the Hard Rock and the Eye of Manchester. I think I've found my base in Manchester the next time I hit town on business. Highly recommend.
Note - our bus driver warned us against walking right of the hotel entrance as there were some know troublemakers hanging around that area at nights.
