I took my partner to Rotunda for a 3 night stay for her birthday. What can I say, it was just breathtakingly beautiful. It was such an amazingly comfortable stay and we would definitely return. Prior to booking, I did request for the highest view (Club Man, 19th Floor, just below the penthouse) which is exactly what we got, so... More

Clean efficient stunning :) Had a great stay here and it is the only place we will book now should we want to stay in the centre. Dont book anywhere else, book here it will not let you down. We booked a clubman room and they are big enough and despite all the modern interior (which is sometimes uncomfortable), it... More

Fabulous views, all conveniences in the rooms and lovely staff. I travel a lot and wish that all cities had a version of the Rotunda. I was on a mixed business/weekend stay, this was a perfect location and the kitchen was a real boon, although the choice of eateries within 100m is huge. Staff were friendly and chatty without being... More

These apartments are INCREDIBLE! I booked 2 apartments (one Maxi and the penthouse) for a hen party and everyone was blown away. Not only is the location perfect, so was the service. The staff couldn't do enough to help on the ;ead up to the booking or during our stay. The apartments were spotless with everything you could need included... More

Hi Becky N Thanks for such a great review of the two apartments you booked, we all so pleased you like the layout of both the Maxi and the Penthouse.

We were expecting a mac but didn't get that. One of the rooms main lights weren't working. And some channels were locked...couldn't access them even after putting password through. Didn't have a scourer or anything to wash dishes/kitchen supplies with (basic but still) Other than that, was an enjoyable experience and a fantastic view especially at night. A prime location...

Hi SohilPatel28 Many thanks for such a fab review, the team and I are so pleased you enjoyed the apartment. Apologies you were expecting a Mac, we took them out around 18 months ago and invested in upgrading our broadband. We ran a guest survey and learned the majority of our guests wanted better broadband for their own tech rather... More

I used Staying Cool for a last minute short stay with a work colleague. Cheaper than a hotel as there were two of us in one large apartment. The space was vast and the view/lighting meant that the apartment seemed fresh and spacious all throughout the day. Oh, and they had Sky TV - full channel pack - which was... More

Lucky enough to have stayed a couple of times here and despite trying other (slightly) cheaper options, the saying "you get what you pay for" is so true. Just that little extra in money gives you so much extra in luxury, location and with the most amazing view - I have vowed not to stay anywhere else in Birmingham, looking... More

Central, well located, great views, good space, well appointed - this is a really good place to stay. Reception / concierge (Simon) couldn't be friendlier. Fresh looking room where the view gets better and better as the evening falls. Great bed. Nice kitchen. Loads of local shops to get stocks in to provide all meals plus lots of local restaurants...

The sheer convenience, luxury, and convenience of these apartments is irresistible. Arriving at a fully equipped private apartment with food & drink delivered in advance to await your arrival on Friday night after work is just wonderful. The views are of course spectacular.

Had a great experience on free and reliable Wi-Fi, and the best views of the city! People there are friendly and so awesome, they also serves the best coffees and fresh milks! Truly a not your usual box-shaped hotel because They provide far more space than most hotel rooms. BEST PLACE TO RELAX, TRULY PERFECT PLACE TO STAY!
