Hotel ibis budget Birmingham Centre
Ranked #64 of 118 Hotels in Birmingham
Reviewed 1 June 2011

If you are just popping into Birmingham for a brief no frill stay...then etap serves that purpose perfectly well.

It provides you with a decent place to spend the night for minimal costs. The rooms aren't too bad and not noisy considering some of the rooms faces the main road which means you can get a decent night rest.

I stayed on a weekday and no doubt the story is different during the weekend when you get all the drunkeds coming back from broad street and could make for a less pleasant experience. Just bear that in mind.

Overall, the place wins on value and you get what you pay for. Just think Ryanair....

I have stayed in the hotel on 2 occasions recently- total of 4 nights. Very good value for money. excellent location for city centre and train/bus station but last stretch to hotel if walking somewhat undesirable area of the city. friendly, professional and helpful reception staff. on my first stay the bathroom had not been cleaned properly but I soon had an apology and another room. breakfast basic but in keeping with price.

I stay here quite a lot and for the price it can't be faulted. Clean basic rooms and friendly staff. My only criticism is that the website and posters say the rooms have flat screen tv's- they don't in brum!
Otherwise great.
There is also a really cheap car park about 2 mins walk away if u can't get in at the hotel, it's just £2.20 for 24 hours!
