We stayed for two nights for leisure purposes. I chose this hotel because of its price, its location and its relatively cheap parking. At such good value I was expecting basic budget accommodation much like Travelodge. In most areas it just exceeded Travelodge but not by a great deal. Nevertheless it suited our purpose. Whilst I have some negative points they were not major issues during the stay and shouldn't affect my decision to return in the future but they are issues which I think the manager should bear in mind to improve the experience for guests. The hotel is more like a motel where the doors to each room go straight out onto an outdoor balcony. This may not suit everyone but I liked not having to go in an out via a reception everytime.

Positives:
- Good location close to city centre. You can walk to the canal and Bullring in under 10 minutes.
- Relatively quite for city centre. On a quiet street with the occasional car passing.
- Good secure parking facilities and cheap. Parking cost £3 per day and you can leave your care until 5.30pm on day of checkout.
- Staff were very friendly and helpful - sorted out a few isses very quickly and politely.
- Clean room
- Bed was very comfortable and I had a good night's sleep
- Nice hot water with a non-fixed shower head plus shower gel

Negatives:
- shower water pressure a bit low
- kettle did not fully boil so had to ask for a replacement which was done immediately
- The bathroom extractor fan ran continuously. It wasn't too loud but light sleepers may want to take ear plugs. I am a very light sleeper but luckily I was so tired that on this occasion it was not a problem.
- key cards did not work on the second night so had to ask reception to resolve

Room Tip: Irving Street is relatively quiet but for extra quiet, you may prefer a room facing the car park instead.

Stayed overnight at this hotel again, Would still recommend for a clean cheap and cheerful hotel, but they still have not remedied the lights outside the rooms, though they did turn the one outside my room off this time.

Room Tip: Do not go on the road side

Dear Guest,

Thanks in advance for the confidence in our hotel again for your stay in Birmingham and for you new vauable review.

As due to our motel style hotel it is not beeing an easy task to find to right choice for the lighting as we still have to keep in mind the minimum lumens recommended for safety reasons on an outside environment.

Stayed here on the 10/10/13 as we had tickets for a gig at the O2 which is literally at the end of the road from the hotel, the bullring is a 10 minute walk. The reception staff are very friendly and an assest to this hotel, the rooms are a bit dated but the bed is very comfortably and the bathroom is very clean. The room smelt musty but that might be due to the old carpet in the room, our room heater didn't work but all in all for £41 I would use this hotel again. Thanks to all at the hotel.
