Staybridge Suites Birmingham
Hotel : very new, kind of aparthotel, tasteful minimal style decor, everything was very well thought of, very functional.
Location : Just easy 5 minute-walk from New Street station. It's great for people who visits Birmingham without car. There're also a lot of restaurants, pubs, supermarkets around.
Reception : on the second floor, check-in and check-out was quite straight forward and fast.
Room : studio : ok size for 1, kitchen area was a bit too big while sleeping and sitting area was a bit too small, bath room was a bit small but functional, great shower gel, shampoo and lotion. Bed and pillows were very comfortable, bed was a bit short though. Lots of cupboard space. Free safe.
Breakfast : great, they also organized free social gatherings (didn't attend)
Facilities : good lifts, free gym and laundry (didn't use)
Wifi : free but slow
Staff : great, the lady who check me in was very kind and let me have the room at 10.00 because I had a 12 hour-flight.
Rate : a bit high but worth it

Room Tip: Tip : This is something between a hotel and an apartment. I would highly recommend this hotel, espec...

Stayed here with friends over the weekend of Birmingham Pride.

Great location, really central, but the current roadworks for the new trams keep taxis at a distance - be prepared for a little walk. The hotel is situation in a building that was previously offices, so the ground floor entrance is a little unconventional, with the reception on the second floor.

Great check-in, the staff, especially Stacey were helpful, friendly and attentive. There is a great 'shop' in reception, selling a wide range of food and drink - very much better than an over-priced mini-bar. Reception has a huge comfortable lounge with complementary newspapers.

Our room was exceptional, although only a studio, it was larger than a regular hotel room. The kitchen included a full-size fridge and dishwasher and all the utensils you could possibly require. The bed was huge and comfortable and the shower a full walk-in affair. The whole hotel was beautifully designed, there was nothing I wouldn't choose to have in my own home, every piece of furniture, wall covering and soft-furnishing has been given some thought.

A complimentary all you can eat breakfast buffet is served in a relaxed area behind reception, it is a huge self service affair with toasters and coffee machines - you just help yourself to as much as you like. A great choice of continental breakfast options is available along with some hot English options. It was great to have access to unlimited tea, coffee and toast without having to ask for it.

We stayed here on a friend's recommendation. Now I'll hunt down a Staybridge Suites hotel every time I travel.

A really lovely, quiet, relaxed city-centre stay - As good as it gets!

Excellent location if you arrive to Birmingham by train as it is only a few minutes walk from New Street station.
Breakfast was great with plenty of variety. Rooms spacious and had everything needed.
Didn't use the gym but it had a good variety of equipment.

Stayed here one night when in Birmingham on business.
Great location - in the centre of town so close to everything.
Staff at hotel - fantastic they couldn't do enough to help - Stacey particularly deserves a mention for going the extra mile and coming up in the lift with me.
Cleanliness - excellent, everywhere, everything was spotlessly clean.
Room size, just right with the most amazing fully equipped kitchen - only negative - there was a nice glass cookie jar on the work top in the kitchen area, but it was empty! But that's the only negative!
The bed was soooo comfortable - I had a great nights sleep.
Good size TV with all the channels.
Free WiFi which worked well - easy fast connection.
Good buffet breakfast including bacon.
All in all a great experience and when I'm next in Birmingham this is where I'll be staying.
Only question - will the staff be able to maintain such a great standard - they have set the bar (quite rightly) high?

We had an enjoyable overnight stay at Staybridge Suites. We were impressed with the helpful and friendly staff who were excellent throughout the hotel. Everyone was very polite and willing to assist.

Our room was very comfortable with good facilities. There was a comfy bed, good & spacious shower and a very well equipped kitchen area in the suite. We liked the cute dish washer. There was plenty of storage space in the kitchen and bedroom with a good sized fridge and ample wardrobe and various drawers around the room. Thank you for having normal hangers in the wardrobe - not the mad ones where you have to slot the hanger into a ring on the rail. The air conditioning was simple to use to obtain the desired temperature. Everything was squeaky clean. We had a panoramic view of Birmingham with its twinkling evening lights.

The reception area has very smart and comfortable seating areas. We were there for a break but we think other guests were staying for a conference and you could see that they felt very relaxed in the setting - as we did too. There was a good array of TV screens and so it would be a great spot to stay on top of the world cup.

Breakfast was disappointing in that there was a comparatively limited choice especially for the hot food, the one egg option - scrambled egg - was dry. Quirkily, the Hotel does not offer plates other than side plates. We asked for bigger plates and were advised they do not have them. Also milk and juice had to be obtained from those big plastic cartons in a fridge. It would have been nice to have had a more user friendly system for these which will be very unwieldy for some and felt rather industrial in a hotel context. Coffee was from machines rather than in pots / cafetieres.

The hotel is very well placed, a few minutes walk from New Street station. We went to see a show at Symphony Hall and it was a lovely walk there and back from the hotel passing ''The Floozy in the Jacuzzi'' and the Historic City Centre which was especially beautiful at night. We also visited Winterbourne House & Gardens. We took the train from New Street to University Station and then had a ten minute walk to the house and gardens which are marvelous.

Many thanks to Staybridge for providing us with a very friendly and comfortable base for our short trip to Birmingham.

Room Tip: Ask for high up for panoramic views of the City and low noise.

Thank you for your review. It's great to hear you've booked again for July! The Staybridge Suites brand limits us to three hot items, but it's good to hear you enjoyed the cold/continental selection too. See you in July!

I stayed here on a one night business trip last weekend. The hotel is immaculate with modern decor throughout. My room 1012 was great, very clean and cosy. Great range of TV Chanel's and a new modern kitchen in the room too. A real home from home and 5 minutes walk to all the shops and bullring so a great location!
