One bed, balcony, sleeps 4


Live like a local...

 A stylish one bedroom apartment, with private balcony, a short walk from Manchester city centre and especially close to Deansgate and Spinningfields.

This pad is one of a few luxury apartments located in this brand new prestigious development, Blackfriars, a residential community with first-class facilities, including a gym and private cinema room.  It is comprised of two striking towers and a Grade II-listed former public house – the Black Friar – which will shortly become a destination eatery.  The apartments and facilities are all centred around a substantial private internal garden, which is south-facing and flooded with sunlight to enjoy a BBQ, beer or glass of bubbles.

Urbana has a wing of apartments available to residents to house visiting family or friends, which is also open to members of the public who want a luxurious and comfortable setting to visit Manchester.  We cannot accept large group bookings for multiple apartments, stags or hen do’s at this venue, as we want to ensure these apartments provide a perfect home-from-home, a great nights sleep and access to all that Manchester has to offer.  Large groups should check out our Edge Street apartment in the quirky and bustling Northern Quarter.

In terms of the interior space, there is a contemporary open plan living area, featuring top of the range furniture, together with a luxury sofa bed.  It is accented by large windows and a balcony, framing either views of Manchester or overlooking the beautiful grounds.

The kitchen is fully equipped to meet your cooking needs, whether it be for a take away or three course meal, which you can relax and enjoy in the dining area.

In the beautiful separate bedroom we have a double bed and wardrobe space providing plenty of storage for your stay.

Our modern bathroom is luxurious and spacious in design, the perfect space to relax or freshen back up.

This apartment is perfect for two guests, although can sleep up to 4 when using the sofa bed.

The space is beautifully designed and provides a true opportunity for you to live like a local.  It has been created with U in mind.

    The property is brand new! Below are some reviews of our other property on Edge Street, Northern Quarter:


    "Never met the hosts but they (Emma and Claire) provided all the info to make it super easy to find the property and get in. - and provide contacts in case anything goes wrong - which it didn't!  Flat is really nice, clean and modern and balcony overlooking the northern quarter is good for a coffee in the morning.  Location is outstanding, right int he middle of Manchester's most exciting nightlight (try Matt and Phreds...) but the flat is also quiet (we were here for work) so it wasn't noisy inside the flat".  James 


    "Really modern, clean and airy apartment, great balcony, great nights sleep, will definitely stop again".  Richard

    "The place is so nice and fancy.  I found the apartment is very nice and clean.  They have two great room and bathroom, and the living room and the kitchen is just perfect.  Also I can enjoy the Manchester's skyline from the balcony besides the living room.  If I'm back to Manchester, I'd love to stay in this apartment".  Rininta
