Best Value Hotels in Manchester City Centre
Manchester City Centre has it all in one compact city center. There’s little need for public transport, though stops on the efficient Metrolink tram service abound and there is no shortage of taxis for those late night rides home from the bars and clubs of the world-famous Gay Village on Canal Street. Directly adjacent is another renwoned attraction, Chinatown, a fixture of the city since the late 19th century and is one of the best places for an affordable and tasty evening meal. On your daytime adventures, use a Metrolink day ticket and get off at Victoria for the Football Museum, an essential guide to this city’s enduring love of the game, expressed in its two rival teams, Manchester City and Manchester United. Just make sure you don’t get your reds and pale blues mixed up. Exchange Square is home to the city’s main shopping centre, the Arndale, boasting its own branch of Knightsbridge favourite Harvey Nichols. There’s so much more: from the Cathedral to its wide range of art galleries. Manchester really does have it all, just a short stroll from your hotels.
