Have just arrived back from having a weekend in Birmingham with friends. Didn't want to be constrained by hotel times, so decided to stay in the Burne Jones House. I was unsure of what to expect as a result of the mixed reviews on this site, but it was only for a weekend so we thought it would be ok. I had asked if we could have adjoining or adjacent rooms so that we could be close to each other and that was provided. Both apartments were lovely and didn't dissapoint. They were spacious, bright, modern and clean and having a small balcony to get some fresh air was great too. We were at the back of the building, which was nice as it got a little roudy outside at kicking out time from the pub opposite - not too loud though and not for very long (and we couldn't complain too much, we'd been in there too). The kitchen was modern and well equiped with everything that would be needed for a longer stay - including a dishwasher and an air con unit. A nice touch was that we had ice in the freezer - great for those 'getting ready' drinks! Very close (5 mins walk) to the Bullring for shopping and to New Street Station. Overall: great location, very modern, spacious and the roof terrace was fantastic - especially in the glorous weather of this weekend.
