We stayed at this Travelodge on 23rd December for a gig at the Rainbow Warehouse in Digbeth.
We travelled by train to Birmingham New Street Station and the hotel is just a 10 min walk from the station, situated at the back of the Bull ring, head for the outdoor markets and it's a stones throw from them. Also in close proximity to the hotel is the Hippodrome, the theatre, the Arcadin, which is a lovely collection of eateries & bars, the O2 Academy is a bit further away but only a short walk, so too is the Mailbox which is full of eateries around the canal. We got a taxi to the Rainbow warehouse where our gig was, which was £5, as we weren't sure where exactly it was, but we walked back and it took about 15 mins, straight road really we just aimed for Birmingham Coach Station and pretty soon after that we saw the Bull ring and our hotel.
On arrival to the hotel at 3pm for check-in I asked for a high floor as it was so central in the city it was obvious there was going to be outside noise. We were given room 822 right at the end of the corridor and yes there was outside noise, but it was ok with earplugs (a must!). Luckily no internal noise though from usual noisey cleaners and other guests, so that was good.
This hotel has had the recent Travelodge refurb, which meant it had the new comfy bed & pillows, brilliant! Nice clean room, basic, but fine, and with tea & coffee making facilities.
My only grumble would be that there's no mirror at the desk & chair for putting make up on etc, there's a long mirror on the wall but no plug close by, so if you want to dry your hair you have a choice of a desk & chair with plug socket and no mirror, or a mirror far away on a wall with no plug socket near by, bad room design really. I tried sitting down on the floor to put my make up on at the tall mirror on the wall but my head was then below the mirror, bit of a pain!
But we paid £21 for the night, an absolute bargain for a clean hotel with a comfy bed in the middle of everything you could want in Birmingham - would definitely stay there again.
