I stayed here for one night prior to attending a conference at the ICC.
The hotel is very conveniently located for the ICC, being a couple of minutes walk away and it’s also very close to the new library, the bars and restaurants by the Canal and not too far a walk from New Street.
From previous visits to Birmingham I know that this hotel used to belong to another, rival, chain before being converted to a Ibis Styles some point in the last year or so.
The room was of a good size and well equipped, though with a slightly oddly designed bathroom
Breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, with all the bread products clearly a little overcooked (well, burnt if I’m brutally honest in places)
For a hotel located so close to a major conference centre I was slightly concerned that it took over 10 minutes to check out as there was just one member of staff on reception, and she was away dealing with another customer for much of that time.
Comfortable Room and Bed
Very slow checkout
