“Super value at Budget cost”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

After being bitterly dissapointed with another hotel in Birmingham the Ibis Budget Hotel was recommended to my wife & I by Mr Ian Alexander of the "War Research Society" of Birmingham, whom we were privalleged to go on tour with.

We recently stayed there last week and again on Monday night and can highly recommend it to anyone seeking a hotel central to the city centre which is clean, with a very frendly staff who are
eager to help. In my opinion this hotel is great value for money.

Stayed here recently for one night. The hotel is located around a 15 minute walk from the central area just off the A38. I paid £6 for a cab from Moor Street station.

Whilst the room was quite basic, it was clean and functional and I had a good night's sleep.

Breakfast was continental, with ham, packaged cheese, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, juices and hot beverages available.

The staff were pleasant and the cost, at under £26 for the night, was outstanding.

Booked this hotel as it is very central to the city centre. It was clean, comfortable and good value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would book this hotel again as I did not have enough time to see all of the sights on offer. I did visit The Mailbox for entertainment and eating out and it was fantastic.

Room Tip: Room location on first floor was good, although the hotel is near a main road I did not experience m...

stayed here in April, chosen as it is very close to the O2 Acadamy. Its got "budget" in the name but dont let that fool you - for the same price you can get in the Travelodge or Premier inn.
Room was TINY, matress was TINY, no kettle, the shower comes straight out into the room, the toilet is TINY (you need to reverse in as no room to turn around). Only 2 TINY, thin pillows and when we asked for extras they didnt have any (as "they were full!")
Give it a miss!

I stayed her for work on a last minute trip and the hotel is very basic but priced accordingly. The room was clean, well appointed, the parking reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

My only complaint is the area, during my stay there were a lot of drunk people on the street at all times of day approaching you for money whenever you left the hotel and walked towards the town.

Room Tip: Aim for a room with an even number otherwise you endure a lot of traffic noise.

The location of this hotel could be a little better but its a budget hotel so cant really complain about that. I have stayed in a few Ibis budgets and Etap hotels this one lets the side down. Firstly when we arrived we paid 10 pounds to check in 2 hours early. Travelodge chargers similar so that was fine. We got to our room and when I turned over the duvet i found blood on the bed side of it.... It wasnt fresh blood as it was a darker color that put me off. We had to flip the duvet over to sleep in clean sheets and we hoped housekeeping would come and change it the next day. We were wrong they just made the bed back up and gave us fresh towels. Other than that the place was clean but the elevator button on floor 2 was stuck together with sticky tape.

If you are on business or need Internet connection this is not the hotel for you. We could barely connect to it and trying to book theater tickets was a real pain. I had to give up and go direct to a ticketmaster outlet. The wifi speed is that of ISDN around .3 of a mb if it works at all. We even tried to use it in the lobby no joy either. Ibis budget sort this out all your other hotels have good wifi expect this one.

Room Tip: Get one not facing the road
