The Rotunda in Birmingham is well known to anyone who has been a regular visitor to Brum. It's that big round building that used to stand over The Bull Ring and can be seen from miles around. Formerly an office block, this Birmingham icon had a revamp several years ago and, through the Staying Cool group several apartments are available to rent.
The apartments are modernly furnished and comfortable and all mod cons are available. There is an apple mac and good modern fixtures and fittings with a small number of provisions provided for your stay. Staff at reception are friendly and helpful. I think the only down sides are that parking is in the nearby Bullring shopping carpark and a bit of a trek- worse if you arrive when it is busy and have to find somewhere else to park! Also the provisions aren't restocked and if you weren't a local it might take a while to find the local supermarket.
Regardless of these minor failings, this makes for a comfortable home from home with fantastic views over the city. It is certainly worth the stay- if you have friends from Birmingham, invite them up: they will love it!More
