Leven Hotel: Manchester's Award-Winning Oasis for the Budget-Conscious Traveller
We are delighted that one of our Canal St venues has won this award.
Leven, situated on the corner of Canal st and Chorlton Street, has been honoured as the world's best hotel for a budget break. This recognition comes from the National Geographic Traveller's UK edition. It's not just a feather in Manchester's cap; Leven has outclassed hotels from Greece to Hong Kong on an international stage.
Understanding the gravity of this award is crucial. The National Geographic Traveller (UK) Hotel Awards are a significant industry benchmark. Judged by a panel of experts from the magazine, the awards aim to spotlight the globe's "best new and improved hotels" across various categories. Leven's triumph in the Budget Break category speaks volumes about its exceptional quality and affordability.
So, what makes Leven so special? The hotel is housed in a building rich with Manchester's industrial history. This former cotton warehouse, previously the iconic Mash & Air bar, has been tastefully converted into a modern haven without erasing its historical essence. With a selection of 42 boutique bedrooms, from snug doubles to lavish New York loft-style penthouse suites, Leven seamlessly blends history with modern comfort.
The judges were captivated by this unique mix of industrial heritage and modern amenities. Leven's prime location near the vibrant Canal Street and its commitment to affordability were standout features. The hotel has smartly priced its rooms to offer great value, making it a top pick for budget-conscious digital nomads. The communal lounges and workspaces are an added bonus, and the preserved red-brick walls and steel-framed Crittall windows pay homage to the building's industrial past.
Leven's appeal goes beyond its physical structure. Whether you're in Manchester for business or leisure, the hotel's central location is a boon. For the business traveller, the city-centre locale and dedicated workspaces are invaluable. If you're here for some fun, you'll love being close to Manchester's bustling nightlife. Inside the hotel, you'll find stylish touches and original features like exposed brick walls and vaulted ceilings that add to its charm.
But the Leven experience doesn't stop at the room door. While the lively bars of Gay Village are just a stone's throw away, the hotel also offers its own peaceful retreat. The lobby bar and lounge are perfect spots for a relaxed evening drink. By morning, this area transforms into a breakfast nook where you can grab a quick coffee and a continental breakfast to start your day right.
It's also worth mentioning that Leven is no stranger to accolades. Last year, it was featured by The Sunday Times as one of the best places to stay in Britain for 2023. It has also been shortlisted for the Food and Travel Magazine 2023 Reader Awards, adding another accolade to its growing list.
If you're planning a trip to Manchester, Leven Hotel is more than just a place to stay—it's an experience waiting to be had. With its rich history, modern comforts, and unbeatable location, Leven is a destination in itself. Why not elevate your Manchester trip by being part of this award-winning experience? Let's make your stay truly unforgettable!
