Hotel ibis budget Birmingham Airport
Ranked #57 of 118 Hotels in Birmingham
Reviewed 17 December 2013

Clean and warm, airport on the doorstep and only £30 booked in advance - works for me every time.

Only issue was that I was told on production of my room card I was entitled to eat at the nearby Novotel at 10% discount. The waiter/bar manager denied that this was true but gave me the discount as a "favour" - communication breakdown not understood by reception staff when I returned to Ibis Budget

Nothing wrong with the hotel, it is the standard E-tap format. What aggrieves me are that the car parking charge of £14 a night that were not identified with the headline room rate on the booking page. There was a hint in the small print if I had taken the time (reduced NCP rates) but in my opinion this is close to deception. To cap it off when I arrived on my first night I spent 1/2 hour trying to work out were I could park.

I am sorry that you feel deceived about the car parking. I am currently reviewing the information on our website to see if we can improve the visibility of the external parking charge.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel!!! Staff are friendly and helpful. Stayed two nights for the clothes show live NEC and a spot of Xmas shopping and market. There's is a shuttle from the hotel on the airport side to NEC which is also Birmingham Int'l. To get to NEC is a walk of 20mins. Bham new street is 10mins via train. Bed comfy and best power shower. No tea facilities however you can buy drinks and snacks downstairs in reception. Hotel does now charge £2 per keep your suitcase for you to pick up later (previously no charge) but still reasonably and the norm. Please bear in mind to book early as prices can vary due to events.

The hotel is ideal if your flying out or just staying over night. There is no tea/coffee facilities in bedroom plastic cups are in room & tv. The bed was very hard only gave us 1 pillow each so had to ask for more the toilet is more like a cupboard with no lock on door. Staff were OK. We stayed on the 3rd December 13. I would not stay again in this hotel I would not rate this as a 1* or 2 * hotel

This hotel is extremely basic but is definitely sufficient to rest your head for a night. The rooms feature a double bed with a single bunk bed above them & the sink & shower are in the bedroom. The toilet is in a small room on its own. Luckily, this wasn’t a problem for my friend & I, however, it would be tricky to maneuver if you were sharing with someone who you weren’t entirely comfortable being naked in front of!
There was just one plug socket & one set of towels for a room designed for three to share, but having been forewarned of this, we were fully prepared with our own towels & a plug extension. This worked absolutely fine for us & we had no problems at all.
The shower, sink & toilet were all clean, as was the bedroom & the shower was surprisingly hot & powerful. We were both very impressed.
My friend & I shared the double bed rather than utilise the bunk bed & we both had a comfortable & undisturbed night’s sleep.
We were staying as part of a larger party of schoolchildren & teachers on a residential trip to the Clothes Show at the NEC, so because of this it was essential that cost was kept to a minimum.
If you are on a budget, this hotel is great, however, I would not recommend it for people who are looking for a luxurious experience. Our experience was entirely positive & I would not hesitate to stay here again in similar circumstances.
