Hotel ibis budget Birmingham Centre

Reviewed 15 August 2010

We just wanted somewhere cheap to stay in Birmingham that was close to town and decided to stay at Etap and try it out. For a functional place to sleep its fine and I would stay again - the only gripe I have with the rooms is the cupboard like toilet and the perspex toilet door with a hole in it - make sure you are close to the people you decide to stay with or it could be a bit awkward!!!

Most people staying in the hotel seemed to be groups of fairly young people in large groups obviously out on the town in Birmingham!!!!

I have stayed in this hotel several times and, whilst I don't love it, I really like it a lot !! It is fantastic value for money and I have to say that I always have the best night's sleep I ever have in a hotel (and I stay in a lot of hotels of varying qualities). The staff are very efficient, friendly and welcoming, the car park is good and only £3 for 24 hours and the rooms are basic, but quirky and comfortable. The shower is fantastic aswell. The location isn't the best part of town but I've walked around the area, often quite late, and had no problems. Recommended.

Stayed here for business and was really impressed with the place. The rooms are quite small and sparse but have everything you need, the shower is incredible and the breakfast is enough to keep you going till lunch.
And there's certainly some characters staying there.
A really goos stay.

We have stayed here at least twice before as 2 of our family have been at Uni in the city and this time saw no reason to change our overnight choice-such great value on the summer offer with breakfast included. Asked for a quiet room at the back on our arrival which was quickly arranged. Great nights sleep and more than adequate choice of continental breakfast and cereal.Great shower too! Parked free on the street nearby. Well done, keep it up to all at this Etap!

great place to stay if all you need is a bed, shower and toilet! There's a tv in the room also but i never used it and i never experienced any noise. The room felt quite spacious and the shower was clean. I have no complaints if all you need is a place to stay for £38 a night!

Also i might add i chose this hotel because its only TEN minutes walk if even a little less to new street station and pretty easy to get to. i wasn't sure though if i wanted to walk under a subway on my own being a girl as i've encountered problems before (in birmingham under a subway near broad st) but considering this is in the centre of Birmingham in broad daylight and surrounded by traffic and people it was fine.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing an affordable place to stay even at last minute

i should also add that there isn't much parking space and can get full at night, we had to park outside of the hotel as we went out to star city around ten o clock for some food.
