Northern Quarter, Arena, stations etc all close by.
Please use the "contact host" button if you want to check out a date or have any questions. Also If you get in touch about possibly staying could you let me know approximately what time you are likely to arrive as I have a part time job and need to make sure I'll be there for you. An Informal breakfast is included. If I'm around I'll make it for you but if not, the kitchen is available and there will always be a decent breakfast to be found! Clean towels provided. Iron, ironing board and hair dryer too. The "Street View" loaded on this listing is a little inaccurate! It's nicer than that, see pic above!
The apartment is situated very conveniently for everything you may want to do in central Manchester. Within 5 minute walk you can reach the vibrant Northern Quarter, Manchester Arena, Band on The Wall, Shudehill coach and bus station, Victoria Station, the Printworks, the National Football Museum, Arndale Centre, the Cathedral.

Interaction with Guests
May or may not be around, will give as much privacy as possible but happy to chat and socialise if you want to. No obligation though!
Please message me before trying to book as things change so quickly sometimes I can't always keep my calendar super accurate. Also please don't be put off if you see "unavailable". Sometimes these are provisional arrangements and , especially if it is a short stay, it may still be possible...just ask, thanks.
If you want a comfortable,quiet, good night's sleep but still want to roll out of bed in the morning and be in the thick of everything Manchester has to offer then this is the place!
Couldn't be much better placed. Main bus, coach and metrolink station 5 minutes walk away, as is Victoria railway station. Piccadilly train sation 20 minutes walk or short tram ride away. The 3 free city centre bus services also help get you around.
Other Things to Note
Whe you enquire please let me know what time you are likely to arrive and leave and the reason why you are coming to Manchester. It helps me to let you know if this is the right place for you. I also feel more comfortable talking to people whose photo I can see on their profile.
I like to be as flexible as possible with check in and check out but that is always dependent on who is staying just before and after you. If you want to arrive before noon or check out after noon it can only happen if it does not affect other guests. Thanks.
You will be very welcome and it's very relaxed here but just to say this is Airbnb so please don't expect a hotel. It's my home! I'm easygoing about most things but if you are coming back late please be very quiet after midnight. And it is no smoking. Thanks.
Nice apartment, very central, spacious and comfortable. The bed is very comfortable. Good place to stay and John is a nice host.
It was already my second stay at John's place and it was as wonderful as my first stay. John was very welcoming and is a really excellent and friendly host.
His apartment is located close to the Arndale Centre and even to Picadilly it's just a walk of about 15-20 minutes whereas you can also take the nearby public transportation. :)
I can only recommend him and will definitely stay here again whenever I'll be in Manchester again.
John was very welcoming and his instructions on how to find his flat were very good. The accommodation was excellent, lovely bedroom with ensuite bathroom and breakfast provided in the morning.
The flat is ideally situated for the Manchester Arena, The Arndale Centre and lots of restaurants at The Printworks, all only a 10 minute safe walk away.
Would definitely recommend this accommodation, thank you John for a very pleasant stay.
Really nice place and very close to the Arena and Arndale shops which was perfect. John our host was very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend!
John was an incredible host who was very friendly and welcoming. He provided everything we needed and was very relaxed and easy to talk to. Showed us how to get to places around Manchester and made the experience one of the best out of all airbnb experiences so far. Would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again if I'm ever in Manchester again.
I booked the room for a colleague of mine, who was very happy with the accommodation, spoke kindly of the host, and was pleased with the central location.
John is like that good friend you never knew you had. Staying with him at his apartment was amazing, and everything was lovelier than we expected. The rooms are as big as the photos suggest, and John is really lovely and hospitable. If I were going to stay at a bnb in Manchester, I would never stay anywhere else. Ridiculously easy walk to city center, and all of the transportation areas.
Easygoing guy just happy to let you get on with your own thing. However I've lived locally for most of my life and have years of experience of life in the city centre and if you're a stranger to this wonderful vibrant city of ours I would be more than happy to advise. I also have a particular interest in the local theatre scene. Anything you want to ask about anything... just ask!
