Reviewed 8 April 2010

I have stayed at the Etap hotel on several occasions in the past when all you need is a room to stay in. It is cheap and cheerful and you get exactly what you pay for. In fact there are other hotels in Birmingham which claim to be 3stars and 4 stars which are more expensive but are not as nice to stay in.

This hotel was brilliant value for money! Stayed for one night before an early flight to Tenerife. Arrived at 8pm and were given a choice of room - floor and smoking / non-smoking. Receptionist really helpful and polite, checked in within 3 minutes. System of swiping key card for access to lift is very good - helps you to feel safe.

Room is bright and clean and reasonably spacious. Strange that the shower is in the main part of the bedroom, but just added a bit of spice to the stay! Bed was a nice double but a bit hard. Had a lovely view of the runway but windows blocked out the noise exceptionally well .

For the money spent (£35) this really was exceptional and I would not hesitate to return there! Much better value for money than the Ibis next door!

Then this is it. The perfect spot for an early morning flight back to the US. Drop the rental car off the night before, have an acceptable dinner next door at the IBIS or a slightly more upscale and expensive meal at the Novotel, then walk across the drive to the terminal for your flight the next morning. Don’t expect anything in the way of amenities, either at check in (dismal attitude) or in the room (basically a white box), but it is clean, the shower is great, and the airport location can’t be beat.

I slipped up here, I thought that this hotel was near NEC but it is in fact right on the airport. If you need a hotel for a flight the next day it is perfect, a short walk to the terminals. If you are just staying because you need to be in the area this is no good for you. Parking is a pain, you might get the hotel for thirty odd quid but you pay £14 to park your car in the airport car park - and get this, to get your car out (and get the hotel discount) you have to walk to the airport to get NCP to verify your hotel ticket. Not a quick getaway in the morning.
The hotel itself is a great example of the budget chains, comfortable, just enough room, the design of the room is very clever for low maintenance and quick turnaround for cleaning staff. It's fine.
You need to bring your own shower gel/shampoo - I forgot mine and you have to buy it!
Also, no tea/coffee making facilities.

If you are wanting value budget accommodation near the airport (200m from terminal) then look no further. Rooms start at 35 pound and while the rooms are small the hotel is very well designed and is the perfect stop before you fly out or in of Birmingham. We also found the staff very helpful and professional. We had an early morning flight therefore did not eat at the hotel although you can get a continental breakfast for 3.50. The hotel is very new and was spotlessly clean. You can also pay in any currency as well which we thought was a great option.
