me and my boyfriend stayed here for just one night in April (thank god)
We went at twelve to see if we could check in, they said come back at two. We came back at two and the room still wasn't ready, so they said come back in half an hour.
When we eventually got the key, we checked into the darkest room I've ever been in.
Just a few of the delights on offer were:
the metal off the lift peeling off (i know)
and a beautiful curly pube in the bathtub.
The film Ice Age was on the tele before we went out for the night, which was ironic, seeing as thats where the TV looked like it came from.
I think the pictures on the walls had been there since the building had been built.
The walls are also really thin and we got woke up at four in the morning by our neighbours laughing and shouting, and running up and down the corridor outside.
On the plus side, the location is fab - very handy.
Birmingham is a brilliant city for a weekend break with loads to do, great shopping, nightlife and culture.
