HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

I've been staying at Staying Cool at the Rotunda while working on a client assignment in B'ham. It made the perfect base. My mini apartment was comfortable and spacious with a great, well-equipped kitchen. A completely superior experience to staying in a hotel. Fantastic location right in the centre of the city, a few minutes walk from the station. Plus,...

This was my fourth stay at the Rotunda and as always it was a good un!  It's a 6 minute walk from Birmingham New Street Station, right next to the Bullring. Check in was smooth and staff very pleasant. My room was on the 19th floor and despite being in the centre of town it was quiet. The kitchen area...

Location! Location! Location! We stayed for two nights in the two bedroom penthouse on the 11th floor in this iconic building in Birmingham, with a view to die for! The apartment was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean! The beds were extremely comfortable. All the staff was totally professional and attentive. Many thanks to Alex Mee! We shall definitely return!

We were booked on the 19th floor. Got in and the apartment was stunning, amazing views of Birmingham and the mini studio apartment was...

from the concierge, through to the room amenities this place is top for Birmingham. While Brum will never be top of a dream city break, this place is top drawer for any destination. Rooms spacy, kitchen well equipped, very clean and stunning views - try it, you'll love it!

The best place I've ever stayed. I work away a lot, and whilst this was a leisure trip, it still stands out. From the friendly concierge to the slick apartments and stunning view, this place just delivers. Believe the Sunday Broadsheet hype. It's sensational. Book direct for incentives (I didn't :( )

The location is amazing, the decoration of the rooms are very nice and modern. I would definitely try to book there every time I come to Birmingham. The view is very nice. You will find everything you need inside the apartment. You can cook your meal and enjoy the time with the spectacular view.

Stayed one night here after a theatre visit. Excellent service. Rooms spotless and I was very impressed with the amenities within the room. Various coffee machines and juicers. Fruit and milk in the fridge, even ice cubes in the freezer. Views from 16th floor were spectacular as it was a clear day. Definitely worth the visit, look forward to staying...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay at the top of the city's iconic Rotunda and enjoy amazing views of the city from your very own beautifully designed apartment right in the heart of the city centre (Selfridges will be your corner shop). Each apartment has floor-to-ceiling glass windows that open fully and the Penthouses have their own outdoor balconies. These stylish apartments have been designed with your maximum comfort in mind. Each comes with bespoke designer furniture, a very well-equipped Poggenpohl kitchen, espresso maker with complimentary locally sourced milk and Illy or Fairtrade coffee, oranges for the juicer, iPod dock, plus a king size bed with pocket sprung/memory foam mattress for the very best night's sleep. There's a 24 hour reception plus daytime/evening concierge offering Staying Cool's renowned service. Choose from Minis (studios), Clubmans (one beds), Maxis (two beds) and Roadsters (two bed Penthouses). And if you don't like heights, we have two apartments on level two (the Olympian and Cabriolet). In short, stay in the best location, in an award winning Grade II listed building and experience life like a local. If you book via Staying Cool's website then you will get a complimentary bottle of wine or free parking and the guaranteed cheapest rate. ... more   less
