“A good location close to entertainment but quiet enough for a good nights sleep”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

The hotel staff were friendly and efficient made us feel very welcome.
Excellent well equipped rooms.
Liked the fact that this hotel is a peaceful sanctuary inside particularly as it is on the very busy Broad Street, this was a real positive as we could walk into the city centre and visit a large variety of bars and restaurants without actually being in the middle of it all.
Only one small negative, we were charged £17.00 to park for 26 hours in an empty car park at the hotel.

I attend an annual conference at the ICC and the Novotel has become my preferred place to stay.

The ICC is very near and easy to get to. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The food is good and the service excellent. The staff team are a really friendly and helpful and it is great value for money.

Like every other hotel on Broad Street, it can be noisy especially on weekend nights. However this is only to be expected given the number of bars and clubs- if you want peace and quiet, don't stay in the busiest street!

What I like most about the Novotel is that despite being a large and busy city hotel, it still manages to be personal and treats you as an individual.

Highly recommended

Hotel itself was a standard Novotel, but the people were very pleasant and helpful and the location was great - right in the centre of the city. The restaurant was closing early that night for a special function, but still managed to put on a very good dinner, served by a very helpful young waiter, who made some very good suggestions.
The room was pretty standard, but spotlessly clean as was the bathroom - I was very comfortable and got a good night's sleep!
The coffee in the room wa most welcome in the morning, as I am not a 'breakfast' person too much! The staff on checking out were extremely helpful, providng very rapid service, calling a taxi for me (which came almost before I could get to the door!) and giving me some helpful suggestions for later travel that day!
For people with a little more time, just down Broad Street, there is the revitalised canal area of the city, where a number of good restaurants abound. Sadly I did not have a chance to visit them on this occasion.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side street, as Broad Street itself was both busy and rather noisy!

Just used this hotel as a base during an over night stay in Birmingham. Used it for its central location.
Staff were very helpful and service was quick and efficant.
Room was very modern and clean. Had no noise issues at all which I was surprised about given its location.
Big minus point for me was the separate toilet and bathroom, the bathroom was very nice, but the toilet was awful. It was like using someones outside toilet in an old two up two down terrace house.
Breakfast was quiet good.
Would I stay again?
Yes, because its position outways the poor toilet room.

Room Tip: Come by train. Very dear topark in this area.
