Only a few minutes walk from all main City centre attractions but has an amazingly quiet bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Access to spacious lounge, kitchen and balcony in a safe, modern apartment.
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. I have a 2 night minimum stay set but this is not always the case so please feel free to ask about single nights. Occasionally I can do this. 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, European adaptor plug 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.
Within 10 minutes walk: The Royal Exchange Theatre, Deansgate, John Rylands Library, Spinningfields.
Within 15 minutes walk: Piccadilly train station ( or a short metrolink ride) Manchester Airport is 18 to 24 minutes away from Piccadilly dependent on which train. If you have luggage and want a lift I can sometimes do this if I'm available dependent on arrival time ( but I only have a little car so 2 people and many large bags may be tricky!)
Manchester City's Etihad Stadium is 1.7 miles away. Manchester United's Old Trafford is 3.7 miles away. ( Metrolink connections from Shudehill)
Time limited free parking outside the building. Message for full details.
There are also 3 different free city centre bus services which run until 7pm each evening helping you get virtually anywhere in the City centre without too much walking.
Despite all this once you are in the bedroom it is usually an oasis of calm and silence.
Whole flat apart from owner's bedroom of course! kitchen, dining area, TV, music and free wifi.
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.
Staying with John was my first AirBnB experience, and it was a good one. The room was clean, tidy and spacious, as was the flat itself. It's in a great location if you're new to Manchester, and I got a great sense of the area while flat hunting with the help of John's wonderful local knowledge.
John is a pleasant and laid back chap who was always happy to make conversation with me and would make the effort to answer any queries I had. Also, I highly recommend you visit John's local pub, called The Angel. There are spontaneous sing-a-longs and fine beers on tap.
Thank you John for being both informative and easy-going. It was a pleasure staying with you.
John was a super host. He was very welcoming and gave us loads of advice about Manchesters and the area. The house was a great stay, the location is really good. It's only a few minutes walk from the northern quarter. If I'm back in Manchester I'd definately try and stay again.
A nice and comfortable stay, John being a friendly and welcoming host. Will use again!
John's has an amazing place in Manchester. Although we didn't get to meet face to face he was super nice and very attentive to us via email/text. He left very detailed instructions/maps with everything we needed to know and even had one of his friends meet us at the place to get us settled in (she was fantastic)! The apartment was very centrally located (super close to shops, restaurants, metro). We felt very much at home in this apartment. Thank you John for a wonderful stay in Manchester!
John is very nice and friendly! The position is very convenient and the room decoration is so romantic. He really impress me with his considerate. I arrive when he is not at home and he give me very detailed step by step instruction about how to get to the place and enter the flat. He really makes me feel at home and I am feeling at my apartment that I brought John's key with me to Leeds by mistake. The key was returned to John the next day. Really sorry about the mistake and I will certainly recommend to stay with him. :)
I was made to feel very welcome but also given a great deal of respect and privacy. Wonderful apartment - the bedroom was very comfortable and with generous space - and it's own en-suite (great surprise!). Excellent location for Northern Quarter, Victoria and Market Street. Highly recommended.
John's prompt responses to texts made it easy to find him. He was there to receive us. The apartment was just as described. There were many unexpected and welcome touches, like bedside coffee-tea making equipment. Good location, quiet with easy walk to town.
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!
