I always choose to stay in Cobden Hotel when I visit Birmingham. So convenient to get into Birmingham Central, Bull Ring for shopping and the service from the staff are 5 stars. Especially Julie and Monica.....the friendly service are fab. Always try their best to accommodate staying guests needs. Thank you and keep up with the good work!! xx

We chose the Cobden Hotel in December for 1 night as it was within walking distance of the Barclaycard Arena and in fact the city centre in general (15-20 minute walk) The hotel is in dire need of refurbishment as it is very run-down. We arrived at 2pm when check-in opened, but they were running late so we were asked...

Really needs a makeover, the halls, furniture, fittings and fixtures were in a right state. Holes in doors covered with a sign, toilet completely loose, half lightbulbs out. Receptionists were not particularly friendly and it was difficult getting more than a yes or no out of them. Security is an issue, lots of drunk people in the bar and reception,...

Cheap, nasty and tired. Rooms are basic in the extreme, bed old and bedding thin. Bathroom was grubby. Breakfast is a nightmare; Food tepid, bacon floating in a mystery fluid, sausage was beige, scrambled egg was solid. All self service. Coffee and juice removed All in all - AVOID

As soon as we entered the room we knew we had problems it was like an oven, the radiator thermostat was broken and could only be used on full. There were no towels, soap shower gel in the bathroom, when it was reported to reception, we were only given 2 very inferior bath towels and soap, still no hand towels...
