“Good Value”
Reviewed 5 December 2009

I was very surprised at the hotel since it was so cheap yet the rooms were spotless and everything was well maintained. Only downside was the the breakfast and quality of the juice. They should have a full buffet breakfast available. i would mind paying extra for that.

Stayed here for one night on business-very nice rooms and good reception area with a small but perfectly functional bar. It is 5 mins from all the main stuff in Birmingham city centre.Some people complained about noise but I never heard a thing.Continental breakfast in the morning sets you up for the day.
If your looking for a good hotel, in the middle of Brum, for a good price, you wont go far wrong with this one.

I have a Priority Club credit card which gets you points for staying at Intercontinetal Hotels of which Holiday Inn is a part.

Apart from the points, I had never previously experienced any 'priority' at these hotels before, but this time I was welcomed and taken in ahead of other guests who were already waiting to check in (which was slightly embarrassing but welcome nonetheless!). In fact this hotel has a special check in desk for Priority Club members (I didn't use this but was treated as if I had when my name came up, which actually made me feel great. The staff have obviously been properly trained to actually deliver what the hotel advertises).

Another advantage of having the card is that it gets you a cheaper breakfast but I wouldn't have known about this if I hadn't asked about the tariff.

However it also gets you a refurbished Executive Room at the (quiet) back of the hotel which was great.

The room had an easy-operation safe directly available at waist height instead of being hidden away at the back and bottom of the wardrobe. Excellent.

Two things I would criticise - there were no drawers! OK if like us you are only there for one night and don't mind keeping your clothes in a bag. But if you are staying longer, that would a problem. Also the climate control/air conditioning in the room had a mind of its own and the instructions did nothing to help with this.

Bathroom and shower plus accessories were all excellent and we got a free copy of the Sunday newspaper (Independent).

Reception was excellent at all times. Check out was very efficient.

We will always stay there again for events at the Hippodrome and Alexandra.

Solo female, last minute booking so it was relatively expensive for a HE express (£95). However the room was very nicely done and the staff were excellent, as I had several things I needed them to get/do. Comfy bed with a choice of pillows - I couldnt work out the shower but thats probably just me.....breakfast was HI ex fare and was fine. You could eat lots if you wanted. I noticed it was significantly better in terms of a spread than when I was last in one (about 4 years ago). Overall, I would certainly recommend the hotel if you need to be in central Brum.

Good Hotel. Clean and comfortable and modern rooms. Central location. Staff helpful. Not expensive however, parking £10 per night in the Hotel car park. Breakfast included which is adequate but nothing special.

We stayued one night at this hotel with a special internet rate. The room was very cleaned with a very comfortable bed and a newly built bathroom with shower. The breakfast was complete and with lot of different foods. Great place near streets with pubs and restaurants. I will come back there.

The hotel is well positioned in the middle of the city, less than 5 minutes walk from New Street Station and the Bullring.

The rooms in the hotel were nice with flat screen TV's and plenty space, my room was at the back of hotel which looked onto a large multi storey car park, on the Saturday night there was quite a lot of noise from people waiting to pay at the parking station.

Overall given the price paid (£90 for two nights) and the location I would recommend this hotel.
