“Good location, lacking in facilities.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

I stayed at the Comfort Inn just for one night and had booked a single room. The room was very clean and was on the 4th floor but the lift was not working (overhearing someone else at reception it sounds like this is not a new phenomenon). I was OK but for anyone with mobility issues this would a stay on any floor difficult. The main problem with my room was that it was doing its best to recreate the atmosphere of a sauna without any discernible heat source that I could find - radiator definitely off but room unbearably hot. Also a smaller issue was that Wi-fi was only free in reception but very expensive to pay for in the rooms - annoying even if the lift had been working. All in all this was a good central location and was a fair price.

Stayed June 2014, travelled solo

Stayed here for one night. Room on the 4th floor with no working lift. If I had a heavy bag the climb would have been uncomfortable. To be fare the receptionist offered to carry my bag up.

The room was quite small but ok for a short stay. The bed was comfortable.

TV remote had no batteries. I could find only one socket which was away from the bed. The room was quite warm even with radiator off.

Bathroom was functional with plenty of hot water. The ceiling slope. Having a shower could be awkward if very tall.

Location is good five minutes to New Street Station and near Bull Ring.

Very near Birmingham New Street and the main shopping area of Corporation St.

Polite and helpful staff - all the rooms I have had, have been clean

Things I see at home I cant complain about - my floorboards creek, near pubs there are often people who have been drinking.

Breakfast to look forward to - after a good nights rest - I have always slept well at this hotel.

Unacceptable that my heavily pregnant wife was allocated this dreadful substandard accommodation within half an hour she rang me in tears alone supposed to be preparing for a conference tomorrow ! Only resolution was me to pay £112 to get her moved into a premier inn urgently! Drunk people in reception and clearly soliciting occurring before staffs eyes! Shocking

At £40 a night, I wasn't complaining as I was going using the hotel for 1 night as I was staying over for friends birthday. The floor boards in the room made so much noise that I had to tip toe, the decor was dated and not very well looked after, the lift looks like something out of a horror movie and I woke up to a lot of slamming doors. As I was stopping over to sample Birmingham's night life it was bearable but if you are staying for more like 24 hours do not book this hotel!

The only real pro to this hotel is the parking, £6.50 for 24 hours is the cheapest Birmingham and you receive this price if you stay here.

In a nutshell, if you're wanting a cheap place to rest head and need cheap parking - stay here!

I received a pleasant welcome when I arrived, a little confusion over the pre payment, they hadnt actually taken it from my card, which left me a little dubious.

The room was clean, the bed very comfortable. It was dated but for the price I paid I couldnt expect anything else..

Genuinely this is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Miserable, faded, disinterested, tatty, noisy and most of all absolutely filthy. If I hadn't arrived so late I would've turned right round again. It's looks like it's not been touched since the early eighties and certainly not cleaned.
