IF you have to stay on the Campus

Posted 19-Sep-2017
Pros: Free Wi-Fi, coffee stations, location on campus
Cons: Mattress are very basic and not so comfortable (old foamy thin ones) as well as pillows (thin, not so comfortable). More variety for the breakfast.
Location: On Campus of Aston University. 10 minutes walk from City Center. Taxis around the corner. Parking available.
This is a basic hotel, very convenient if you want to stay on campus. Have a nice coffee station with capuccino machine and some fruits/small snacks for free. Tends to be trendy for the decoration and atmosphere. REstaurant is offering a breakfast that is ok (we miss cheese however) but very basic as well. Room are outdated, not so comfortable, heating is not constant and either it is too hot or too cold. This looks like student's room transformed into hotel rooms. Hotel Latour nearby may be a better alternative if you want to upgrade your stay.

Nice enough hotel and fair value.

Posted 01-Sep-2017
The hotel was nice enough and for the price paid, we would stay again. About 15min walk to city centre area. My only issue is that the information on expedia for parking was lacking. Contact the hotel directly to pre-book parking and get directions to their nearby site before travel as the entire area immediately outside is no parking* and the car park, whilst close, has a different access route which is not explained sufficiently on expedia. * I was caught out by this and had to briefly park in a no park zone outside the hotel as I popped in to the hotel to get directions. If I am fined (as the signs suggest could happen) then I will be complaining to expedia as they should make this clearer.....

Good room size

Posted 18-Aug-2017
The room was ok but couldn't open the windows much to refresh. We checked in on a Saturday night quite late as we arrived late in Birmingham, and there were plenty of party students around and in the hotel. Smelled weed all over the corridors and lifts, my little niece was scared because of their behaviour and being loud. They continued their party in a room close to ours for hours and reception would not do a thing. As a plus though, free private parking and good size room and bathroom.

Hotel Hassle

Posted 17-Jul-2017
Pros: -
Cons: IT systems, air con in rooms
Location: Aston university - not bad location in relation to city centre and the bullring. But being based at a uni campus ruins the experience.
Upon arrival was told they were having IT issues and would not be able to check me in till later in the day or potentially be out sourced to another hotel. There was no update until around 6pm that we could check in and this in turn affected our plans for travelling around birmingham.
