We stayed here to be in Birmingham for Chinese New Year and chose this hotel because my wife works for IHG and we get a substantial discount.
Check in was not good - speaking too fast and not listening to my questions... The room was functionally clean but looked "cheap" and "tired". It was not a room you could feel comfortable in. Breakfast was terrible. Croissants that resembled "dwarf bread" (a hard weapon, not food) and the yoghurts were sour (not refrigerated properly?)
We paid 30% of rack rate, but I am afraid that was not good value and we will never stay in HI Express again.
And to the reviewer with the £700 bill? There is a car park, but you have to demand that reception staff tell you clearly and slowly where it is - and I am not surprised they blindly charged you for the TV. The whole feel of the place is one of blind rule following and charging. We were accused of trying to have 3 people in our room - and I had made sure our friend who was with us at check in stayed in view of reception while we took our 1 bag up to the room!!!!!
