“Excellent Place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

I have put friends up in Saco @ Livingbase many times and never received anything but a multitude of thanks and praise for offering such an inspired alternative to a Hotel. The girls who look after the place are just so brilliant, can't do enough to help out. The value is top, the accommodation is where you would easily expect a Premiership footy player to live, so fantastic and neat. The least expensive accommodation does not even compare to a hotel room, these are top quality apartments that would cost quarter of a million up if they where on the open market. I just don't know where they buy the beds from but they are not anything like I have slept on before. The apartment, whole building and the setting in the beautiful Brindleyplace must be one of the top spots in the English Midlands, just excellent.

Can't praise it enough, I want to live there ...!!!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are the best they give you such marvellous view of the City

I stayed here with my partner for 6 weeks whilst we waited for our new build house to be completed. We had spent 1 week prior at the Spires apartments near the mailbox which wasn't a patch on this.
The apartment was very modern, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to make it home for the month and a half we spent there.
The location of this apartment meant getting around Birmingham was very convienient and eating out meant just nipping downstairs to brindley place.
The staff here are what makes it so great...everyone on reception is so friendly and welcoming, they always welcome you when you come in after a long day and check if everything is ok and ask if you need anything.
We had one slightly noisy group next door for a night but the reception staff quickly dealt with it and ensured we didnt have any groups next to us for the rest of our stay.
Considering the cost of this apartment is only what you would pay in a standard hotel it is definitely better staying here as you have plenty of space, all the amenities of an apartment and the nicest staff you could wish for!
I highly recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate to stay again should I ever need a home from home!

Room Tip: The 2 beds are the only ones with washing machines but if you ask reception they will happily let yo...

We stayed in the duplex apartment shown in the photo above for one night whilst visiting Birmingham for the Dancing on Ice Show at the NIA. The apartment was clean comfortable and well specified. Great location in the City centre. Brindley Place is very pleasant with lots of good places to eat and canals to stroll by. The NiA is 5 minutes walk away. You will need to park in the big NCP 5 mins walk from the apartments so unload by the entrance to the apartments then park the car.

Had to stay in Birmingham for business, all the usual hotels were booked up for an event which was taking place. Came across SACO apartments next door to Brindley place.
The accommodation is excellent, very spacious and home from home amenities. The two bedroom apartment had a bathroom each and a lovely sitting area on the mezzanine level.
Whilst I was only there for two nights I can honestly say I could have stayed longer.
Once outside the apartments the choice of bars and restaurants would appeal no matter what your taste.
A great find will definately use again.

Not stayed in a serviced apartment before but will definitely be opting for this in the future. Miles ahead of a lot of 'cheap and cheerful' hotel options, these spacious apartments were ideal for a recent business trip. Brilliant location in B'ham, great layout with lots of space for two colleagues that need a bit of head space after a busy day, plus nice touches and stylsih finishes. Enjoying a beer on the balcony, next to a big tele and iPod in the docking stereo....this is the life!
Great value for money! Consider this before going down the usual hotel routes.
