Can't Complain at £30
The hotel is located in the city centre, a stone's throw from New St Station and the Bull Ring Shopping Centre. The staff on reception were friendly, and it was an efficient check in. I guess it's hey day was the 1970's when it was newly built, and it would seem very little money has been spent on it since. The decor was dated and unusual. (Who in their right mind would decide to paint all the woodwork in black gloss paint?) The room was at first appearance clean, but areas, such as the wall under the sink in the bathroom hadn't been cleaned for a long time. The water was hot, and the bath filled in about 2 minutes. Walls a little thin as I could hear conversations of guests in the next room. I did not sample any of the food. Would I go again? If I needed a cheap overnight stay, with a decent bed, and that's all I wanted, yes. If I wanted something smarter and I was willing to pay more, then best choose one of the many other hotels near by. But at £30 I'm not complaining.
