****Sachas hotel- Manchester****
I booked this hotel last minute as i had a job interview in Manchester and needed somewhere quite cheap ,that was also near the centre.
**Location/Getting there** This hotel is located in Tibb street which is a 2 minute walk from Piccadily Gardens or 10 minutes away from Chorlton street bus station.The Train station is a little bit further away say maybe a twenty minute walk but i don't think that this is that bad .You can also get a tram from Piccadily gardens and this goes to quite a few places.You could also get a taxi to the hotel but i am not sure what parking is like if you were to take your own car.
**Reception/staff** Since i had never been to Manchester before i phoned and asked the staff for directions -they were very nice and helped me out.When i got there i think i got the same women(was a few days later).Staff member was lovely ,you felt like she actually liked her job/was being genuine.Checking in didn't take very long,it started to get busy so another member of staff came out and helped.
**Hotel/Room** One problem with the hotel was that the lift was broken and the signs to the service one weren't that clear,so i ended up dragging my suitcase up four flights of stairs and my suitcase aint light!!!. The other thing i didn't like was that the room i had didn't have a window,which i thought was weird.I like looking out the window for the view/to check what the weather is like before i decide what to wear.The room itself was very neat and tidy and came with tea/coffee facilities .The shower was reasonable ,not great but good enough for a hotel.My room didn't have a mini bar but i don't know if this is the case in them all.
**Other** The room service was very quick and they had a good selection of food-Prices are what you expect for room service. Breakfast-They offer a buffet breakfast in one of the bars downstairs for around £10 depending on which option you get. I paid £5 for mine and i am glad i did as i would say it isn't worth any more than that. I went for breakfast at about 10am and it looked like some of the items had been on the hotplate since they started serving breakfast at 7!!!The staff also seem busy so it can take them a while to get you a pot of tea or coffee. They have a swimming pool which can be used for £2.50 a day or £5 a week.
**Price** I paid £100 for 2 nights through hotelclub.com(if anyone wants referred feel free to ask :-)).Prices seem to start from £55 depending on what time of the week or the month you book.Also if you do it through the club i have mentioned they also give you *member dollars* which can be used for money off future hotel bookings.
I would say this is a great hotel as it is cheap ,the staff are nice and is in a wonderful location.
