Where Should I Stay for budget friendly accommodation ?


Depending on how close you want to be to the indoor arena will often have an influence on the price. City centre places to stay are especially luxurious in the Deansgate area and will situate you within ten minutes walk of the ground. Slightly away from the crowds are several 3 and 4 star cheap hotels which are still located within a third of a mile.

The inner city area of Salford also offers an excellent selection of cheap properties and from here, you will be within walking distance. Popular in the city of Manchester is renting a self catering apartment for a night or the weekend.

>> Book the Cheapest Deals

However most hotels have a direct line to a reputable taxi service and the public transport links from here to the city centre are fantastic too. If you need to cater for any special requirements, it is advisable to contact the hotel you are considering in advance to discuss arrangements.

One of the largest arena’s in Britain


The Manchester Arena is one of the largest indoor arena’s in Britain and also Europe. It was opened in 1995 and was formally the Manchester Evening News (MEN) and Phones4U. It is one of the busiest venues across the globe and attracts headline acts like Pharrell Williams, U2, Madonna, Oasis and Simply Red.

This venue also broke records in the 2010/11 season thanks to the residency of Bolton born comedian Peter Kay. More than 1 million visitors are drawn to this entertainment complex annually and it has previously been the recipient of the International Venue of the Year award. Transportation here is excellent, therefore securing accommodation in this city will give you the chance to visit the countless other attractions further afield.

The 21,000 capacity Phones 4u arena has also hosted a number of prestigious sporting events in the past including Commonwealth Games events and boxing matches with stars such as David Haye and Mike Tyson. Another popular venue with plenty of accommodation nearby is the Manchester Academy, close to the University campus.

Some of the most exciting attractions nearby include Chill Factore, Band on the Wall, Cornerhouse, Old Trafford football stadium of Man Utd, Heaton park and the People’s History Museum.

Although securing rooms at a bed and breakfast will entitle you to one meal a day, there is a fine assortment or restaurants in this cultural city too. The Mongolian Grill for example in the Northern Quarter is highly recommended as the food is delicious. This all you can eat is worth every penny and offers convenient access to the high street and the best record shops in the city.

Chinatown needs no introduction and by choosing well priced b&b’s, hotels or apartments to rent in this area, you will also enjoy close access to many of the best nightclubs in the city.
