With a captivating contrast, the white walls and large windows of this apartment serve as ideal background to its sophisticated black furnishings. The living and kitchen spaces illustrate a modern approach to the overall design through the black leather sofa and cabinetries, while in the two bedrooms, a subdued and fresh style is the inspiration. The plush king-size beds take an inviting mood with their immaculate, hotel-like linens. The two bathrooms with bathtubs equally speak of a light ambiance.

The contemporary property is tucked in a gorgeous four-story building that features original wood, stone, and metal decor. Aside from being a standout in the area in terms of architecture, the building is just a three-minute walk from Piccadilly Train Station.

14. Luxury apartment

This entire property rental is perfect for a family holiday or a group of friends that wants to explore the heart of Northern Quarter, one of the things Manchester is famous for. It is just a 3-minute walk from the train station. Not only is this location and property in excellent condition but the hosts also welcome longer term stays - perfect for those of you who have more time flexibility.

Sleeping arrangements include one double bedroom with rain-shower ensuite, another double bedroom and then a double-sized sofa bed, so in total the property can comfortably fit up to six guests.

Moving into the bright lounge, where the sofa bed is set, you’ll probably first notice the luxurious leather armchair and flatscreen television that comes with Netflix and LoveFilm. The kitchen is of ample size and well-equipped with a small dining bench.

It is worth noting that wifi is available throughout the property but that it must be requested, so we would recommend mentioning this to the hosts at the point of booking. There is free parking available on the weekends, but it is worth checking ahead, otherwise, the nearby Dale Street carpark can be utilized for £12 a day (24 hours).

17. Stylish loft apartment

We fell a little bit in love with the stylish and modern yet warming decor of this property; the pinewood colored furnishings perfectly match the range of greenery inside making this a relaxing spot for your vacation.

The building was originally a 19th-century warehouse but was converted in the late 1990’s and then has also received a further refurbish. Everyone involved has done their best to keep a number of original features from the double-height ceilings to the exposed oak beams and iron pillars throughout the property.

This one bedroom rental is perfect for couples who want a stylish central location with plenty of space and charm. Nestled into the core of Manchester City Centre between Chinatown and Canal Street means that you can enjoy plenty of romantic date nights in the local bars, restaurants and entertainment facilities.

Want to stay in a luxurious penthouse with all the mod-cons, including a DJ deck and an inbuilt surround system? Well then, like magic, your wish is our command. This penthouse rental is primarily decorated in white, making the room naturally bright and spacious. The creative design features in this property really make the best use of space, we particularly like the box-feature shelving and exposed white brickwork.

The double-sized ceiling also gives a spacious ambiance, whilst the plants and greenery in the common areas give the property a cozy feeling so that it doesn’t get too cold. Each rental is for a private double-bedroom in this warehouse, so be sure to contact the host before booking to ensure that the rental meets your requirements. We love the workstation in each room, this warehouse space really does get your creativity flowing.

19. Long-term vacation rental

Finally on our list, something a bit different, this time offering a long-term vacation rental. Although a central location, this property is still quiet and we love the balcony which overlooks a traffic-free square; its the perfect place to enjoy breakfast or a cup of tea. I’m sure we could be tempted to a glass of wine on the balcony in the evening. There is parking on site but it is not free for guests, a small charge applies. This apartment is only available for long-term rental with Assured Shorthold Tenancy.

23. Warehouse conversion

This luxurious and unique spacious warehouse conversion is in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Manchester City Centre. The property is the home of the hosts but they have prepared a beautifully decorated king-sized bedroom which feels like a boutique hotel.

We love a few features about this property; first, the time and effort that the owners have put in, from the art-deco style tiling to the large artwork throughout the property. Secondly, the view, which takes in the canal and surrounding areas.

You’ll also have access to the comfortable shared kitchen, bathroom and lounge area where a light breakfast is prepared for you each morning. Due to the excellent location, all of the main tourist attractions are within walking distance, whilst the airport is just 17 minutes away.

The beating heart of Manchester

Any of these locations will mean that you are literally in the beating heart of Manchester’s city center. Everything, you could need is at your doorstep and these properties are all fantastic, making this the ideal formula for a perfect holiday. We’d recommend visiting the John Rylands Library, one of the world’s finest collections of rare books. If you’re a football fan then you can’t miss the Old Trafford stadium, or perhaps you like theatre and the arts in which case we’d recommend The Lowry Theatre and then stroll along to the Whitworth Art Gallery for some fine art viewing. Sounds perfect!
