“A very recommendable City centre Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2010

A very pleasant one night's stay. Staff friendly and helpful at all times, room very clean, comfortable, and quiet. Secure parking at a fair rate for a city hotel. Complimentary
breakfast good in quantity and quality. Will certainly return.

What you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Standard reasonably sized room, clean with friendly staff. Parking and internet usage is extra on-top of your bill and no restaurant which I believe is standard in all Holiday Inn Express hotels.

Friendly staff on arrival. Room clean and confortable, although didn't like the pillows even though there was a choice of soft or hard (personal preference, others might find them OK). TV picture a bit fuzzy. bathroom clean and good shower.
Breakfast OK nothing special, but efficient staff topping up and clearing away.
For the price could have included a few biscuits and hot choc in the room rather than having to pay from the vending machine.
Very good location.

Good location for the centre (walk to Broad St/canals 5 mins one way, business/shopping districts 5 mins the other) on a quiet street. Acceptable room for the night, clean, good shower and bed, spacious for the price, small TV with only 5 channels + Sky News and very bad reception. Continental buffet breakfast included (with undrinkable coffee). Robotically efficient receptionists - no eye contact, very bored demeanour.

I stayed in this hotel after leaving the other hotel i was originally booked into after seeing how dirty it was (Britannia Birmingham).

The staff at reception were exceptionally polite, friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, tidy and spacious with good modern facilities.

There is no restaurant in the hotel, however there is a complimentary breakfast. The food was nice with a good range to choose from. Cooked breakfast, toast, fruit, croissants, muffins, cereal. You can take your breakfast up to your room too if you want to eat away from the small dining area. There is a small bar area too, but if you are looking for full facilities then book in to the full service Holiday Inn near New Street station. It is just as nice and clean.

Thoroughly enjoyed my two nights in the hotel, slept great, beds were lovely and hotel was very quiet even though it was fully booked. The staff clearly have a passion for service.

I also have to mention that the location is great, 5 minute walk away from everything, and there are a couple of pubs and bars round the corner from the hotel. I have to say that the steak house is really lovely - best food i've had in a long time!

We stayed at this hotel for one night in July and it was great. The staff at check-in were very friendly and informative and the room was clean and comfortable. Location is great, just a 5 minute walk to Broad Street and not much further from New Street and the Bullring shopping centre. Have to say that the shower was absolutely amazing :) Would definately recommend to anyone who needs a hotel in Birmingham for a few nights.

Although I have given it a great deal of thought there was not a single thing that I could find wrong with this hotel. The car parking is safe and secure, the welcome on the reception was lovely, the room was spotlessly clean, the bed was lovely and comfortable and the buffett breakfast had enough variety to please everyone. The central location is perfect for bars, restaurants and shops. Also, there is a brilliant pub, right next door to the hotel, called the William Shakespeare, which does very reasonably price exellent food. what more could anyone ask for. We will certainly stay at this hotel again when we next visit Birmingham.
