We had a long weekend in Birmingham and stayed on the sixth floor overlooking the back of the hotel. Very quiet and peaceful. Breakfast is the usual Holiday Inn Express standard, now with hot food, and despite the hotel appearing to be full was never too busy. Parking is extra but very secure, the only problem was the size of parking spaces, but if you have a Hummer you will probably be somewhere upmarket.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street and on a top floor.

Thank you for the feedback on your recent stay, I am delighted it was an enjoyable one.

The hotel is perfectly located for any visit to Birmingham, as despite being in the city centre, the location just of the main street can be very quiet.

I am glad the car parking was useful, and just in case you bring a Hummer next time -we do have some bigger spaces!

I hope we can welcome you back to the hotel in the near future

Kind regards

Stayed over for one night as we were eating at the college of food which is based opposite the hotel.
Rooms are basic and do need a refurb, did request a quiet room and was allocated one facing the city centre, but saying that slept well enough until around 8.30, then unfortuately in the morning we were subject to one of the cleaners using a vaccumm either in the corridor or next door, could have done with out to be honest.

Breakfast is okay, but they need to change the oranje juice and espiecally the sausages as neither had any sort of taste < still mystified how a nice looking sausage can be so tasteless >

Staff are quite friendly and generally quite clean in all areas. It is a very good location for the city centre and broad street plus a nice walk to the mail box.

Okay for a night or two.

Nothing to complain about when it comes to cleaniness, but the furniture and decor definitely need urgent refurbishing. Also, don't expect too much of a view. Breakfast - terrible, the worst coffee I have ever drank in any hotel.

The hotel is in a great location for exploring the city centre.

The underground carpark was very handy with a lift taking you straight to reception, there is a charge though of £10 per 24 hours.

We received a friendly welcome on our arrival, the receptionist even gave us a map of the city and pointed out key places.

Our rooms were very clean and a good size, only thing missing unfortunately was a mini bar. Considering we were in the city centre they were also very quiet.

The bathroom was a little basic and a couple of the shower tiles had some black mould which could have easily been cleaned but overall was ok.

There was a fairly good standard selection for breakfast which was kept well stocked.

As mentioned in previous reviews the bar area is small but there is a decent pub/restaurant next door which is worth a visit.

Was the first time I have stayed in Holiday Inn Express and would definitely stay in one again after staying here.

Friendly, helpful staff. Basic accommodation but clean, quiet, and excellent value for money. Continental breakfast fine - don't even think about sampling the hot cooked food - it looks terrible !

Stayed here one night on a business trip and can't fall the hotel. From the genuinely warm welcome from reception staff, comfortable room, central location and excellent price. The breakfast was not the greatest I have ever had and no bacon available! Would recommend the Shakespeare pub just around the corner. Really nice ambience, excellent range of beers including Sharp's Doom Bar from Cornwall. It travels well.
