Leven offers a base from which you can easily walk to all of Manchester's hot spots, and is nice enough you'll be delighted to return to it after a day and night exploring. Perfect for a couple or friends on a weekend getaway or a solo traveller wanting a solid launchpad from which to explore. The building itself is an early 20th-century red brick building sitting pretty on the corner of Chorlton and Canal Street in Manchester's colourful Village area. The walls give off an air of history reflecting this building's rich past from serving as a cotton warehouse, brewery, comedy club and now a handsome hotel. While there isn't a private car park, there are plenty of places to park nearby and you're a short walk from the station.

The Living Space is a home from home, with a slick kitchen, stylish living space, bedroom and bathroom - all gloriously flooded with natural light. We loved the freestanding bathtub in the bedroom; it's deep enough to have a long soak in style.
