easyHotel Manchester is now open
Just as easyJet transformed air travel, easyHotel is set to bring a new budget option for tourists visiting Manchester.
Here’s what you need to know about easyHotel Manchester:
- EasyHotel Manchester is the brainchild of easyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou. Most things he touches take off!
- Sitting alongside The legendary Hatters backpackers hostel in the Northern Quarter – a place which has been proving the budget model for decades – the new hotel is perfectly situated for tourists wishing to take advantage of a partially gentrified location offering loads of character.
- The Bradley building was built in 1880/1881 as a warehouse on the site of a late 18th century cotton mill. The mill had been taken over in the 1830s by machine manufacturer Wren & Bennetts. According to a plan of the area from the 1800s, the building was in use as the Kessler & Co Shipping warehouse.
- The main entrance to easyHotel Manchester is on Dale Street and is only a stone’s thrown away from Picadilly Railway station, a little further from Victoria Railway station. It’s a central location from which to explore Manchester, or you could choose to stay “local” and tour the art and soul of the Northern Quarter, go in search of Manchester’s Banksy, or visit the Greater Manchester police museum.
- The easyHotel in Manchester is within the shell of the listed Bradley House. Built in the 1800s, Bradley House, is known locally known as “The Flatiron” building because of its unique shape. Much of the hotel’s historic interior is hidden by the design of the easyHotel.
- The easyHotel Manchester has 114 bedrooms and has been converted at a cost of £6m, including cost of purchase. The rooms on the fourth floor were planned as sleeping pods, while the rooms on other floors are fully fledged rooms sleeping up to two people in either single or double beds (a window is optional); with a family room sleeping two adults and two children.
- easyHotel is the owner, developer, operator and franchisor of branded hotels across the country. Its strategy is to target the “super budget” segment of the hotel industry by marketing “clean, comfortable and safe” hotel rooms to its customers. easyHotel currently has three owned hotels comprising 390 rooms, and a further 17 franchised hotels with approximately 1,400 rooms.
- Rooms are available from £19.99 per night. But book early as the price increases the closer you get to the night of your intended stay. Highest price is in the region of £36. Bookings can only be made online. Check-in is no earlier than 3pm and you have to be out by 10am.
