It’s always most encouraging to receive such feedback and it does give that little extra incentive to do it even better the next time.

Good points:
~ central location
~ 5 minute walk to New Street Station, Bullring, Victoria Square, Mailbox
~ Very close to Chinatown and the entertainment, theatre and gay area
~ relatively affordable
~ decent, modern, nicely designed rooms
~ modern bathroom
~ free wifi
~ breakfast costs only GBP 10.50 if ordered the night before
~ nice buffet breakfast has pretty well everything, except luxury items
~ 10 min walk to The Gym
~ kettle in room, with lots of free tea and coffee, and cookies
~ safe in room
~ comfortable bed; lots of pillows
~ friendly, efficient service from reception and cleaning staff
~ wall of windows in some rooms
~ flat screen TV (with only English channels)
~ windows can be opened

There's always a danger in listing the no-so-good points, because people tend to take these out of proportion. However, no hotel is perfect.
~ double rooms are small, but we changed to a twin and these are bigger
~ smallish bathroom; small tub
~ extraordinary noise from rooms facing the street, at least on Friday and Saturday night (including cars, horn blowing, party-goers, screaming)
~ guests can turn up the heat, but it makes a noise
~ shower/bath water is fine, but you can’t make it truly hot if that's what you like

This hotel is recommended if you get a twin room facing away from the street. I would have given it a rating of 4/5, except for the noise on Friday and Saturday night for rooms facing the street.

Room Tip: Get a twin room facing away from the main street

Efficient check in, clean room, comfy bed. For city centre hotel, it was not too noisy (a few sirens heard outside during the night). £10.50 standard charge for breakfast was high for small bowl of cereal and a piece of toast.

Reviewed 28 February 2012

Check in was very quick and efficient. Stayed in a very large exec room on the 8th floor. Only woken once in the middle of the night by a lot of bottles being put into a wheelie bin or it could have been refuse collectors. Considering the room size, it would benefit from a larger tv and the bathroom was small (again considering the size of the bedroom. We were room only so cant comment about breakfast. Very well located for the Bullring and New Street Station.

Reviewed 28 February 2012

This is quite an old hotel, recently refurbished, in the centre of Birmingham just around the corner from the main train station. Some bargain rates to be found.

As a PC Platinum member, they looked after me well - upgraded my room and offered some free drinks. The bar on the 1st floor is also pleasant.

Free WiFi in my room. Only complaint was the road noise, despite the double glazing. Suggest that you ask for a room that faces out back.
