Actually the location is ideal if you are visiting St Andrews, as we were!
For the price the hotel is good value and the room we had was fine, if a little tired in places, with a nice view across to the city.
Being born and raised just down the road from this place it was pretty handy for a trip down the Coventry Rd to see just how much the place has changed. Some nice asian shops and cafe/restaurants heading towards Small Heath and in the other direction a few ok (if studenty - including the obligatory drug snorting in the loos) pubs.
If staying here I recommend visiting the Irish Centre towards the city - very welcoming with live music and a great atmosphere. Also the Railway Cafe next to Bordesley Station do a great bumper breakfast in true greasy spoon style.
As others have said, the security check when returning at night was not particularly courteous, but I guess they have to be careful. Some noise from younger guests in the night (it is pretty close to the Bordesley student clubbing district) but wisely came equipped with earplugs.
Free parking is a bonus - left the car there while at the footy with no complaints.
Would stay again as long as the prices stay low.
