Meet Alan

The Alan welcomes you to experience the true spirit of Manchester. A space where we reject the pretentious, embrace the cities industrial past and its creative present.

A former cotton warehouse, we expose the building’s modest beginnings; the historic brickwork, the pitted stonework and honest craftsmen marks. We transform it into a curated venue where stories are energised, new friendships are ever-lasting and where the realness of our city; the grit, the rawness, the impassioned characters are brought to life in one multi-faceted space. 

The Alan is the Princess St. hotel reinvented. Reinvented to share and ever instil our uniquely Mancunian soul. 


Our Rooms

Many of our rooms are still TBC (to be converted). We are giving our guests early access to The Alan for a price that’s easier on the wallet. We invite you to stay, to take part in the happenings on the ground floor and enjoy our neighbourhood. 

Experience what The Alan has to offer and have a sneak peek of our rooms opening in early 2022.

Our Location

The Alan is nestled right in the middle of it all. Right across the street from Manchester Art Gallery, beside the neon lights of Chinatown, minutes from the train station for easy access and a stone’s throw away from the cobbled streets of the Northern Quarter, home of the independents.

Most importantly, The Alan is located in Manchester, the capital of the North and one of the UK’s most vibrant cities. A place that George Orwell once described as the “belly and guts of the nation.”
