big, big fans of Manchester, being Northern and all, which is why we frequently head to the city for a weekend break. This time we gathered up the girls and decided to stay in an apartment rather than hotel. After hours of research we came across the Staycity Serviced Apartments, a block of apartments located just 5 minutes walk from the train station and 10 – 15 from the town centre.

The apartments start from just £69 a night for a one-bed which sleeps 3 people, the biggest is a three-bed which sleeps 8 and starts at £125 – that’s around £15 a night each – bloody bargain. We stayed in one of the Tower Block apartments with 2 beds, 2 bathrooms, a huge living room and kitchen area with dining table, floor to ceiling windows and a small balcony with cracking views over the city.

The apartments are spacious, modern and come with everything you need to stay for a weekend or a couple of weeks. The kitchen has a kettle, teabags, coffee, milk and cooking utensils in case you feel the need to cook. There’s free WiFi throughout, a widescreen TV, car parking and vending machines in the corridors in case you get the midnight munchies.

If you’re in a group we’d seriously recommend checking out these pads, as well as Manchester they have blocks in Birmingham,  Birmingham, Dublin, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London and Paris.
