My girlfriend and I just returned from a last minute break in Birmingham. After reading some really bad reviews on the hotels under £50/night, we decided to splash out and paid £89 to stay a night in the Spires serviced apartments. This was half the normal price as we booked through Laterooms.com.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly receptionist and were quickly shown to our suite. Having seen the photos on their website, we knew that it would be something special, but we were amazed at the standard of all the rooms. The bedroom was very comfortable, and the bathroom very clean. The living area/kitchen was furnished to a very high standard. The suite was clearly designed to accomodate guests for longer periods of time (it had a fully equiped kitchen, for example), and I imagine anyone doing so would feel at home here.
The apartment building has only recently been built (work was still being done, but we were not disturbed at all) and is ideally situated in the heart of Birmingham, right behind the Mailbox (a brand new complex of shops restaurants, and bars) and a 5 minute walk from New Street station. The location could not be more perfect, as it was not on a busy main road. The only downside is that the apartment was directly opposite a busy office block- the view left a lot to be desired, and would not be suited to someone wanting to get away from the work environment!
Overall, we would highly recommend this apartment. For the price of one mediocre hotel room in the city centre, or a slightly better one on the outskirts, you can have a fantastic suite in this apartment block, right in the centre of Birmingham. It would also suit families or larger groups perfectly, as there are 2 bedroom apartments available.
