Wake up in one of the best apartments in The Quays and Media City!
* Premium room with river and city views, large en suite bathroom, living area and balcony -- with internet access *
Better than any 5* hotel, this apartment is situated in the very heart of Salford Quays and Media City.
The NV Buildings host the most prestigious apartments in the area, located immediately opposite The Lowry Outlet and Lowry theatre, just a one minute walk from the new BBC and ITV bases, 10 minutes to Manchester United, and a few tram stops from Manchester city centre.
With its unique design, green-lit fascia, and gated security, including 24-hour concierge, the NV Buildings is one of the most photographed and filmed locations in Manchester.
You will be staying in a private, key-secured bedroom, with en suite bathroom, in one of the very best apartments within the NV Buildings.
Your large, 15th floor room offers you complete privacy and amazing city views, from the immediate river (officially a basin) below, to skyline views of Manchester city and mountain peaks in the distance. Relax in style: the room includes a large double bed, 32" HD TV with DVD player and movies, CD player with a selection of music, and plenty of storage space.
Your large, private bathroom includes a toilet, sink, large bath and shower, full-wall mirror -- and is stocked with a selection of toiletries to ensure you're never left short.
And that's just your own private area!
In addition, you also have full access to the kitchen area, just down the hallway.
This includes a massive, white six-seat leather sofa and chais lounge, six person dining area, a huge fully-stocked kitchen - and all of the entertainment you would expect of a premium apartment, including a massive 52" television, digital reception, DVD player, and more. You also have full access to use the fridge and washer/dryer as required. Your stay also includes wireless internet access.
Looking to chill out and unwind? Head out onto the spacious 18 foot balcony with a glass of wine, to soak up the nearby atmosphere and appreciate some of the best views in the city.
Or if you don't feel like stopping in, just head out! The Lowry Outlet and Lowry theatre are immediately opposite, with a host of restaurants open into the night, and a blissfully quiet ten screen Vue cinema, just waiting for your presence. In the day, you might wish to take the beautiful walk direct to Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United -- or discover the glorious Imperial Museum North, all within a few minutes by foot.
But it doesn't stop there. Manchester city itself holds a myriad of excitements, ranging from the Manchester Wheel, Chinatown, Museum of Science & Industry, Manchester Cathedral, the Printworks, and the UK's most famous gay village, Canal Street. For retail therapy, check out the High Street, the Arndale Centre, or head off to the fantastic Trafford Centre.
You can head straight into Manchester city centre by taxi (takes 10 minutes, around £7) or by tram (every 12 minutes, immediately outside the apartment, just £2).
If you're looking for a central yet tranquil location... If you're looking for somewhere with all of the quality and none of the sacrifice... If you're looking for somewhere you can feel genuinely comfortable, safe and happy... Then THIS is the place for you.

7 stars is not enough, it's worth even more! Thanks a lot Karl!
Karl's apartment is beautiful, modern, clean and has great views from the large balcony. It is in such a nice area (3-4 min walk to the tram station) and within walking distance (about 20 mins) to Old Trafford as we were there on the weekend to watch an EPL game. Unfortunately, Karl was away at the time so we did not get to meet him - however, Karl left thorough instructions for us on how to get to the apartment as well as a welcome instruction pack which proved to be very helpful.
I do not have any negative things to say about the whole experience at all - everything was just perfect. I would definitely stay here again if we are in Manchester.
My husband and I just had the most wonderful experience at Karl's place! The apartment is absolutely beautiful and convenient!! And Karl has been such a wonderful host to us. He's thoughtful in what he provides for his guests and he goes an extra mile to make sure we have a wonderful and comfortable stay. We are greeted buy chocolate bowl in our room and the apartment is so neat and clean. We were thinking that it might be awkward staying with the owner, but Karl's friendliness has proved us wrong! He created a cozy environment for us. If we are to come back to Manchester again we would definitely want to stay at his apartment again!
Karls place is amazing and exceptionally well looked after, tidy and very neat. Room was great =, very presentable and exactly as pictured. The place is 10min away on tram to manchester pic, and walking distance to old trafford manchester united stadium. I thouroughly enjoyed my stay with Karl and highly recommend him!
This was my first Airbnb experience and it was brilliant. Karl was a great host and his appartment is stunning - from breakfast on the balcony looking over the whole of Manchester to the little touches in the room. A really special spot and I'd definitely recommend it - thanks Karl.
Beautifully and conveniently situated, gorgeous apartment, lovely room with spectacular private bath, and Karl a gracious but completely discreet host. If I'm ever back in Manchester this is where I'll be and I've already recommended it and him to friends.
This was a dream Airbnb experience. Karl was an absolutely fantastic host. Extremely thoughtful with little touches all over the place. (bowl of chocs, file of travel info, bottle of water, cereal etc) Absolute pleasure to deal with in prior communication and even better when face to face.
His apartment was perfect.The room and ensuite left us wanting for nothing. I've also got to mention the stunning view from his balcony especially at night.
Location was a little out of the city centre but well connected by tram and buses. Tram stop is literally 2 mins walk. Area is safe and quiet.
For Man U fans, one can get a great view of Old Trafford from Karl's balcony and is located a pleasant 10min walk away.
I would certainly not hesitate to stay at Karl's apartment anytime i am in Manchester.
Thanks for everything Karl and do remember to give us a shout when you're in our part of the world.
What can I say about Karl? Absolutely top bloke! From a cuppa on arrival to a 'please just feel at home' attitude. Not a bad word to be said, he's thought of everything and it feels like a top hotel experience. The apartment is gorgeous and I'd look forward to my next stay. : )
If you are reading this DON'T THINK IT TWICE!, just see if you can book it now. Karl is not only the best, but put so much effort so you can get a 5 stars experience in his house that at this point, stars are not even enough to rate his place. Is a most to go place in Manchester. The view is unbelievable, the room... amazing, the hole apartment is gorgeous. Location, location, location, especially if you are a Manchester United fan. Definitely the ONLY place I will stay in Manchester.
We've had a wonderful time at Karl's place. It is superbly furnished, absolutely spotlessly clean and there's everything you might possibly need. and the panoramic view is just stunning. regarding getting into town: tram is just outside, could not be easier!
Karl was always helpful with everything and superbly caring although he was not even in town! 5-star-rating is almost not enough!!
