This is the second time we have stayed here - both times for a crash pad after a gig - for which it is ideal.
Big bonus is the fact you can securely park your car (£10 for 24 hours) in a carpark underneath the hotel - and then just a 5 min walk into the centre of Birmingham.
This time we had supper at the pub next door (Shakespeare) which was very reasonable and just what we needed before a gig! There are other bars/restaurants just next door as well - and literally less than 5 mins All Bar One etc etc before you hit the city centre so really well located.
As with all Express by Holiday Inns the continental breakfast is free - and does the job - lots of it and fresh but nothing too thrilling.
We would always book this if we were at an event in Birmingham - highly recommended!
