better options available

Posted 28-Jan-2016
Pros: the positives were the room was clean. ironing board in the room all the channels on telly. thats about it really.
Cons: the halls need a lick of paint for a start. check the radiators work. and maybe get reception staff that smile once in a while.
Location: 10 min walk from the bullring.
conference hotel is what it is. purely business! not something im used to. for eg. you had to park the car about a 5minute walk away (thats if you ever found it) and got charged £8 per night. We had gale force winds to deal with walking from the car park to the hotel. The walk from the reception to the lift and then on the floor to the rooms is another mini marathon. gym, pool facilities are not on site. the floors are like university digs. dont go on a friday or sat night as its packed out with students and noisy ones too. my room was facing away from the courtyard and sat, mon and tues night i could hear the base line from the club across the road even when i put the telly on. And the radiator in my room did not work (however I did not inform them about this as i could not be bothered to have to move after having unpacked everything for a 4 night stay) room service finishes at 10 by the way!

Quiet Birmingham alternative option

Posted 18-Dec-2015
Pros: Location, quiet, shower
Cons: Parking fees, kettle !
Location: Quiet campus, just off A38 M - good for M6; close to shopping
5 mins walk from the start of Birmingham shopping centre (Corporation Rd, Colmore Row), obviously further for Bullring / Broad St - no bad thing), quiet area as on a campus, nice room, powerful shower - hot water with good pressure; room well equipped if a little snug with no outside traffic. Downsides were kettle doesn't click off automatically - think before switching on and then going for a shower; and, more frustratingly, the car park daily rate finishes at 08.00 or so but checkout isn't until 11.00 - good way to get you to have to pay for 2 days when you leave at 11.00 the following morning (£8 a day). Reception reasonably efficient, room very clean. Would use again

Good hotel

Posted 05-Oct-2015
Overall good, except no air conditioning. The staff were helpful. Noisy during early hours and we were already on 5th floor. Got 10% off from expedia. Ice and water dispenser on the corridor was nice.

Pleasant stay at a low cost

Posted 05-Oct-2015
Pros: Our room was very clean, ok size for one nights stay, bathroom was clean and modern. Facilities were good.
Cons: If I could request 1 thing, being able to control the room temperature.
Hotel was very clean, staff friendly and welcoming. Booking was straight forward, as long as you have a SAT NAV hotel was easy to find. No noise from outside, I had read a previous review saying there stay was not a good one, due to noise. We didn't stay for breakfast, but as we left eating area was busy. Our room only has 1 pillow each, we asked at the desk for another 2 and they were brought to our room pretty much straight away.

Easy walking access to the bullring.

Posted 21-Sep-2015
Hotel is clean and had good facilities in the room. The rooms are small, this wasn't a problem for us especially as we were only there 1 night but may be if you were there for a few days. Very easy walking access to the ma in centre, around a 5 minute walk at an average pace.

This felt like the university where 'playing hotel' Seemed a bit like a building site- not quiet finished in parts. No warning that it was actually on campus and a walk to parking - this made actually finding the hotel a nightmare late at night when all you want to do is check in and go to bed. Breakfast was poor. Nice enough but won't go back again.
