“Comfortable and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

Stayed for one night to join a family celebration and found the briar rose to be very handily placed right in the centre of town. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was surprisingly quiet. The room itself was well equipped with flat screen tv tea and coffee biscuits and bottled water.
My only criticism would be the state of the windows which could do with a good cleaning.

A colleague introduced me to the Briar Rose - I'm really grateful. I ended up staying there for some weeks earlier in the year.

Rooms are of 3-4 star quality at a 1 star price. The design of the hotel in a converted bank reflects the Burne Jones theme (he was born in a building opposite) and provides individually designed rooms that are nothing like a budget chain.

Beds are comfortable, bathrooms functional and in some cases luxurious.

Well done!

Room Tip: If they're available try to get one of the luxury rooms, the sofa / armchairs is useful if you...

Only stayed here for 1night to go to a concert at LG Arena. Room was ok a little on the small size and extremely hot but you can't do anything about that with such a hot summer we've had. For what we paid was a really good price and great location, would recommend!

Stayed here during July on a business trip.
Hotel was ideally located for me, less than a 5 minute walk to New Street station. Chose this hotel as it was one of the only hotels in Central Birmingham that offered free wifi.
Service was good, friendly receptionist. Nicely sized room with comfy bed, only let down was the lack of air con - didn't think that one through when booking a hotel in one of the hottest weeks of the year. Luckily was on the 4th floor & able to open my window without getting any noise from the street below.
Breakfast is served at the attached Wetherspoons pub, and is as you would expect for a Wetherspoons - incredibly cheap & not bad quality either.
Overall, would return in the winter.. not so sure about the middle of summer though.

Have always used the Briar Rose as a base when we visit Birmingham. The food is typical Wetherspoons, the booze is cheap ( for a city centre) and the location is great for Broad Street. Parking is a pain as its not free till after 6pm, the multi-storey will charge you an arm and leg for 24 hours. We have stayed in both feature rooms which are better than the standard ones.
I would stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a lovely 5* review.

Parking in Birmingham city centre can be tricky for a low price, but our receptionist are always more than happy to direct you to close cark parks and quote the prices.

We hope to see you again in the future.

Got a refurbished room which was smart, clean and comfortable, no view but was advised was quieter than street view option (hmmm..?) check in staff friendly, offered me a free standing fan as no a/c in room.

Location is good very close to New St Station, is located above a JD Weatherspoons (English pub chain) which is not really very nice pub typical plastic fit-out. No room service. Decor good and feels individual/budget boutique even though it's part of the pub group

But I have to say at €60 it was great value for money. Will use again

Room Tip: make sure you get a refurbished room. No a/c. No room service.
