Very well located near to New Street station. However my room overlooked a roundabout with not only loads of streetlights but also an incredibly bright illuminated hoarding on it (one of those electronic ones whch flash different adverts) and the light shone over the top of the blinds, keeping me awake. There are no curtains as such, just a net and the blind, which didn't do the job properly (and bear in mind we are talking floor-to-ceiling windows, so lots of light does come in.) I would suggest requesting a room round the back of the hotel if you are as sensitive to light as I am. And I would suggest to the hotel management that they fit curtains in addition to the blinds, to assist in keeping the rooms dark.
Otherwise, a very nice room with all mod cons and a comfy bed. It was quiet and the bathroom was good, though the taps in the bath take some getting used to. Relaxing ambience in the rooms and corridors. I had a meal there which was delicious, though inevitably expensive. The welcome at reception was extremely good, too. All in all I would recommend it, but the issue with light would make me cautious about which rooms I get in the future.
