Are you mad for it? Then the Manchester Ancoats Travelodge hotel, located next to the city's Northern Quarter, is the right choice for you. This area is famed for its alternative bars, cool restaurants and rocking music venues, with Affleck's Palace a highlight.
You're also just a short walk from the centre's Piccadilly Gardens, a great place to take a break from the many shops. Or head for a night of comedy at the nearby Manchester Apollo.
