Ibis Styles Birmingham Airport NEC
Ranked #60 of 118 Hotels in Birmingham
Reviewed 15 June 2014

As others have said, good location, but a bit overpriced for what you get. Basic rooms, but the lighting is very poor, could be made better. We stayed 2 nights for the Eagles concert and little to do except go into Birmingham. The breakfast was very basic as well, one day a bowl of fresh fruit, the next nothing. Decided to eat there the first night as we have stayed previously, ordered a steak this time but it was cooked very poorly with no taste at all, so next night we eat at the Wetherspoons in the NEC. But a clean place and staff good.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with family

The hotel room was quiet, clean and in working order. My only issues were when I untucked the quilt from the end of the bed it wasn't fastened up and the quilt itself had a big brown stain on it. The other was the lack of lighting. There wasn't a main light in the room which made getting ready a challenge. Overall good though, the staff were fabulous on reception and lounge area.

I hope you enjoyed the Good Food show this year. Thank you for spending the time to review our hotel.

I apologise for the mark on the duvet, this is unacceptable and will address this with the head housekeeper.

It was great to hear that the staff gave excellent service throughout the hotel, I will relay your review to them.

Best regards

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry we didn't live up to your expectations on this occasion. Our rooms are clean cut in design which is the Encore theme.

I hope you enjoyed the concert, after speaking to guests who returned I believe it was a very good night.

Cheap, clean and a good nights sleep. Spent a night stopover em route to an interview. Arrived late and left early which was no problem as someone always on desk. Room clean and bed comfortable. Good value for what I needed

This is probably the best place to stay when visiting the area for concerts at the LG Arena
A short walk from the hotel to the arena is great &the bar was open when we returned from concert.
The parking charge is a bit of a downer & the parking area is limited although we were told that there was an overspill area fairly close by
Rooms were basic but very clean & suitable for our needs although the bed was quite small
Very good breakfast with loads of choice
We will be using this hotel again when ever we return to the NEC. or the LG Arena

Room Tip: A room on the car park side is probably better for outside road noise

Very convenient for the airport, this hotel is comfortable and good value. Paid to leave the car there while I was on holiday and everything was fine.

Just a five minute walk from the hotel is the train station and the monorail to the airport.

I'd recommend the Rasa Indian restaurant in Milton Earnest if you're looking for a good local place to eat.

Booked a midweek value overnight stay as we were attending a concert at the LG Arena and paying a visit to Villa Park.Checking in was quick and easy and found our room to be clean and well equipped. Location is excellent for both NEC and airport. We also took advantage of the two evening meals for £30 deal and the food was excellent. On site parking also a bonus. If I'm being honest I probably would not pay the full price but for the price we paid I was very happy.
