Getting a Bed for the Night in Manchester
Manchester in the United Kingdom is known for many things. To many, it is best known as the home of the Manchester United soccer team, but the city has much more to offer than just sports. It is a vibrant locale featuring a Piccadilly Grand Showflat dazzling array of dining, drinking and entertainment options. You might say Manchester has something for everybody.
The same can be said for its vast choice of accommodation to meet every need and budget. There are many excellent places to stay that are close to Manchester’s most popular tourist attractions as well as ideal venues on the city outskirts, in suburbs such as Bolton, Altrincham and Stockport, should you prefer a hotel closer to the countryside. These suburbs are near Manchester International Airport.
The city centre has lots of excellent value pub accommodation such as the Burton Arms Hotel near the Victoria Station, The Crown Inn on Deansgate and Castlefield and The New Union on Canal Street, a loud and boisterous place that is a favourite haunt of the gay community.
Monroe’s Hotel near Piccadilly Station is a good, affordable choice if you are looking for a more traditional, family-oriented hotel. The Mitre Hotel right beside Manchester Cathedral is another excellent option that will not strain your budget too much. Meanwhile, in central Manchester, you will find a flagship YHA with affordable prices which is a short walk from the hip and trendy Castlefield Basin, which hosts several of Manchester’s best nightspots.
There are many inexpensive hotels of good quality in the outskirts of Manchester, particularly in Chorlton and Didsbury in the south and Harpurhey and Blackley in the north. Just 15 minutes from the city centre, Barlow Moor Road in Didsbury features several good family hotels with friendly prices, including Bourneville Hotel and Green Gables Guest House. Harpers Hotel in Harpurhey, about a mile or so from the city centre, is another good choice.
