Hotel ibis budget Birmingham Airport
Ranked #59 of 118 Hotels in Birmingham
Reviewed 7 October 2012

We stayed here over a weekend to attend an event at the NEC. Our room was a standard double, which is very small and basic but it is very clean, comfortable and functional. The rate we paid was £75 p/night which was the "event rate" but we saw that the same room went for £18 p/night on "non-event" nights. I don't think we got £75's worth but I booked months in advance and it was the cheapest hotel I could find at the airport on the particular weekend, so I think it was fine. There is no hairdryer in the room but one can be obtained from reception for a refundable deposit. The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are ample restaurants at the airport (only 2 minutes walk) and at the adjacent hotels (Ibis and Novotel). We had the hotel's continental buffet breakfast in the morning, which cost £4.25pp. It included croissants, toast, butter & jam, fruit salad, yoghurt, juice, tea, coffee, muffins, cheeses. It wasn't out of this world but it was nice enough. The only two things which I thought was a bit annoying was the fact that the room didn't have tea/ coffee making facilities and wi-fi was only available in the hotel lobby. Fair enough that we had to pay for it (only £3 for 3 hours which wasn't much) but then we couldn't use it in our room. All in all though the hotel was great for access to the airport and NEC (1.5 minutes on the monorail from the airport). I would definitely stay here again if I had an early morning flight or event at the NEC.

We have stayed here on numerous occasions we usually book our car into long stay 1 car park and stay at the etap if we have an early flight from Birmingham the next morning.. The airport terminal is a 2 minute walk from the hotel so perfect if you have an early flight. The rooms are small but comfortable. We usually pay between £18 and £25 to stay here. You should book at least 6 weeks before you are due to stay to get the best prices.

This place was absolutely ideal for our 2-man trip to The Cycle Show at the NEC nearby. A special price on parking opposite, and a clean, comfortable room with an extra bunk was exactly what we needed. 10% off the restaurant at the Ibos next door (20 seconds' walk away) helped too!
In particular, Glelys, our first-day receptionist, was amazingly helpful. There was no real need to be so helpful as nothing was wrong, but the level of information she gave (about parking, eating, travelling to the NEC and so on) saved us lots of time and a little money, too.
Great place. Ideal for doing business or travelling in this part of Birmingham.

We had previously stayed twice in the slightly more 'upmarket' Ibis Hotel right next door. The Etap was more basic but very comfortable and clean offering great value for maney at £31 for the night. Where else could you get a hotel that close to the Airport Terminal for the price? We would happily return to either the Ibis or the Etap next time we fly from Birmingham.

I liked it. It had all that you needed for a one night stay before flying from the airport. The room was well looked after, basic but very clean and with decent toiletries in the bathroom. The beauty of the place is its location and it represents great value for money and I have to say much better than I was expecting never having stayed in an Etap hotel before. I would certainly stay here again when flying from Birmingham.

Had an early morning flight from the airport and this hotel was perfect for a stay the night before. Clean, modern and cheap, it is right next door to the departures terminal. Just remove the plastic mattress protector and you will sleep comfortably.
