Delighted with my stay here, was at dinner at Hilton and conference at NEC, and handy for both (5 mins away). Glenys on front desk very helpful for information. Room perfect for overnight crash, new - clean and everything in good order. Internet for only £3 a good add on service. Would definetly use again.

Etap hotel Birmingham

Our flight came in at 1.20am on a Sunday morning, meaning there were no trains back until 9am. Originally we had planned to stay at the airport until nearer 9am but the flight was so tiring, my partner persuaded me in my grumpy tired mood to book a room for the night. There are a couple near the airport but we chose Etap. I've never stayed at an Etap before but was pleasantly surprised by it. The room cost £37 for one night and it was the best £37 I've ever spent!

The room was just your average budget room, with a double bed but with a single bed above (bunk bed) which id never seen before. It had a TV a small sink, shower and toilet. The beds were a little hard but i usually prefer this and slept like a dream! There was some noise from the window which at first we thought was the monorail thing but on further inspection the window wasn't completely shut so the air was producing a whirling noise, as soon as it was shut proper there wasn't a peep! The shower was hot and powerful and the TV had good reception. In all i couldn't fault it for a one night stop off and I'm glad i did it because i hadn't quite realised how much i needed the sleep.

Heres my review on the Etap Birmingham Airport

We paid £18 for this hotel and the location is great its just a few steps away from the check in desks and we suggest that you check in to youre flight and then go back to the Hotel for breakfast its alot cheaper than paying the Airport prices

The Hotel is a standard Etap Hotel nothing special though the Staff are friendly,The Rooms are comftable and have a fairly large Television for a budget hotel,Though the beds are not the most comftable in the world they are ok for a one night stay.

So if youre looking for a decent nights sleep for a very small amount of money which is 2 seconds away from the terminal go for this Hotel!

Room Tip: ask for a room on a higher floor

There was only 2 things I can find at fault and one of those is nothing to do with the actual hotel, one is the monorail being slightly noisy which meant I couldnt leave the hotel room window open due to the noise. The only thing I can comment on is the bed/mattress, it was extremely uncomfortable. Apart from that I would definitely stay again.

Please note that some tests are being done in order to improve the bed comfort. It should hopefully been roll out to all Etap UK in the near future.

We stayed at this hotel while visiting the NEC BBC Good Food Show. The staff are wonderful, there was 3 of us in our room and we paid £6 each per night. I have stayed in 5 star hotels which have not been as good!! The rooms are basic but clean, and we had no noise from the airport.

Room Tip: Breakfast good but very cramped space
