I recently stayed the weekend at the apartments. We booked a 2 bed and we were pleasantly surprised to have the penthouse. Thank you to the city view team.

The bedrooms were spacious however the beds were rock solid but I must say I slept well but my friends found it uncomfortable. 2 beds 2 bathrooms of which one was an ensuite.

The open plan living room and kitchen was spacious and had a flat screen tv, DVD and a dining table. All utencils and towels are provided.

However the wifi was very very poor something they need to sort out.

Overall great apartment located in an ideal location with a 10min walk to Broad Street.

Would come back and stay here.

I've stayed at the City Nites apartments a few times over the years, twice in 2013. It is extremely well priced compared to booking a hotel for a night but with the added benefit of having your own space. The apartments are always very clean and the service is excellent. There is parking onsite and wireless internet available.

The rooms are spacious and there are plenty of windows, so whether you're staying in summer or winter it's perfect all year round.

A great place to stay if you're travelling with a few friends for a weekend or even with kids as there really is lots of space in the apartments.

It's directly opposite the National Indoor Arena (NIA) so makes it ideal if you're travelling for an event.

A short walk and you're in the town with plenty of places to eat both during the day and a night.

Self catering means you can eat what you like, when you like and the kitchen is full with utensils so it's like being at home, you'll have everything you need.

I can't recommend the City Nites apartments high enough and they're my first choice for any time I'm going to Birmingham.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up will minimise the occasional noise from the street in the evening but the apartments...

Arrived to city nites on valentines day for a romantic night for me and my partner. The lady that checked me in was very friendly and professonal explained everything to me. When i checked into my apartment the room did smell of canabis which was a let down. The reception offered me sented candles which was nice. But luckily enough i brought my own. Another unfortunate thing that kept happening was the Tv kept turning itself off every few hours which was anoying. The rooms where very clean and over rall me and my partner had a fab time. When i read reviews i was skeptical about this place specially with my deposit. But to me the business seems nothing but fair if you brake somthing you pay. I will certainly return to city nites as it had everything to make you feel at home.

Room Tip: Look for deals ........

Dear Kate,

Many thanks for taking time to write this review! Our apologies for the above-mentioned inconvenience, our policy with regards to smoking of any kind is very strict and results in the immediate loss of deposit. The authorities are always contacted when we suspect disruptive or illegal behaviours.
The TV was probably on an idle-timer, meaning that after a set amount of time, it turns itself off. This feature is typically disabled, so please accept our apologies for not checking the settings prior to your arrival.
We hope to see you soon, and yes, we always have deals that you can find on our website! :)

Best of luck,
The City Nites Team

Brilliant place to stay of you are away for a few days with work or leisure... Really central for NIA or IET ( a minutes walk). Lovely to have my own space and ideal for a woman if away on your own... Plenty of room, nice apartment with everything you need.

We had a girlie weekend in Birmingham and chose to stay at city nites. A little apprehensive having read other reviews on trip advisor. We had nothing to worry about! Apartment great, clean, comfortable and staff were helpful and friendly! Would not hesitate to book again or recommend to others! Thank you :)

We were staying here for one night for a friends 40th Birthday celebration. We had booked the penthouse suite on the top floor.

The Suite was very large, on two levels, two very big modern room with huge beds in them that would probably sleep 3-4 people. Two bathrooms (1x en-suite) 3 balconys. Upstairs we then had a large open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area which was great for us to have some pre dinner drinks before we went out.

The apartment is kitted out with all the stuff you would need in the kitchen etc. The views around the apartment from all balconies are just fab.

There is parking underneath the apartment block with a secure gate system and then a lift to take you up to the different floors.

I would definitely recommend this to others and will hopefully get to return again in the future.

Stayed for two nights for a short break. Apartment was very spacious and clean. We bought our 14 month old baby with us so asked for a cot which was in the room for us. Although we were grateful for this it wasn't the best quality and had no mattress just a folded up duvet in the bottom. The kitchen had everything we required. Reception was friendly. Yes you have to pay for parking which we did and yes you have to pay a deposit but this is clearly advertised so I can't see why people complain about it. The apartments are in an excellent location and are a really good alternative to a hotel. The only negative we had was we couldn't connect to the Wifi at all no matter where we stood in the apartment, this wasn't a problem for us but if you were here on business it wouldn't be good. All in all we had a great time and would definitely stay here again.
