If you want homogenous anonymous hotels then this is not the place for you. That said, we've now stayed in 4 of the 9 rooms and all of them have been decorated to the same decent standards- the website isn't pulling any fast ones- but at least they've been put together by a real person and they've taken the trouble...

The double room I booked was very stylish with a very modern wet room en-suite. The location is great for a night out in the gay village and the Bull Ring is only about 15 minutes walk. Lots of parking just over the road at £2.50 for 24 hours. Rates are competitive compared to city centre chain hotels and I...

This accommodation is located above The Fountain Inn and as it was located above a bar I didn't have high expectations.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small independent gay run hotel centrally located in Birmingham City Centre. We are situated above the Fountain Inn bar in Birmingham's gay village just a stone's throw from the rest of the bars and nightclubs. The hotel offers clean, comfortable, modern rooms with 24 hour private access. All rooms have an en-suite wet room. Double bed, king size in most. Clean linen and towels, a Freeview TV and an alarm clock. Ironing facilities are also available as well as a complimentary coffee station offering fresh fruit, biscuits and hot drinks. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout. Owing to the hotel being above a bar please be aware that some noise will be heard during the bar operating hours especially at weekends. However the bar does not operate until the small hours and closes during the week at 11pm and at weekends around 2am. ... more   less
