One of Manchester‘s newest hotels has been voted one of Britain’s best just a year after it opened.

Leven, a canalside spot in the Gay Village, only opened for the first time last December and has already gained solid recognition.

The temperature published its list of The best places to stay in 2023and Leven was the only hotel in Manchester to be given the green light by the prestigious guide.

Leven last year took over a former 20th-century warehouse on the corner of Canal Street and Chorlton Street and transformed it into a stylish, luxurious hotel.

Each room includes a complimentary pair of limited-edition designer socks and a breakfast smoothie, as well as bespoke furnishings, natural mattresses, and fast WiFi.

Its penthouse suite extends over two floors, with a living room, large kitchen and dining area, as well as a terrace, two bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Just this week, Leven unveiled plans for a ambitious art deco restaurant on its ground floor.

Maya will occupy three floors, from a canal-side brasserie space serving modern European classics to an elegantly designed ground floor dining room that will revolve around a seasonal menu based on local ingredients.

In his review, The temperature said: “The Leven is housed in a beautiful old red brick cotton warehouse on Canal Street. It’s now a mix of intimate boutique hotel and aparthotel, with an industrial design that lends personality without the fuss.

“This is the perfect place for the kind of person who might book an Airbnb but wants the services, style and location of a hotel. Most of the rooms have convenient kitchens and are great value for money if you want an apartment without the price tag.

“Rooms are outfitted in tonal grays, Crittall black windows, exposed brickwork, green velvet sofas, and blue velvet bed frames.”

The newspaper was particularly impressed with Leven’s location, writing, “This is where the Leven really scores. It sits on Manchester’s pedestrianized Canal Street alongside the Rochdale Canal, lined with outdoor tables and chairs and accented with overhead light bulbs, perfect for a glass of wine and people-watching.

“The Gay Village has a thriving LGBTQ+ community, where Saturday night spills over into Sunday afternoon.

“The Leven overlooks the canal towards Kampus – a newly renovated cluster of warehouses on cobbled streets housing independent outlets such as Pollen Sourdough Bakery, Beeswing Wine Bar, Kampus General Store and Madre for tacos and tequila.”
