Really enjoyed staying at the Rotunda, and would do so again. Why not perfect? Old razor left in the shower soap holder and the cover to it was in the shower tray. Bathroom mirror smeared and not clean. Some of the furniture had small stains on - not sure what? Car park was an issue as reading the welcome email... More

We stayed here for 1 Saturday night as a treat for our wedding anniversary. Had booked a clubman room as this was bigger and had a bath, but on check in was told that our room had had a boiler failure resulting in no heating or hot water! No fault of anyones and we were given another room, a mini... More

Hi jane b Please accept my sincere apologies for the last-minute change to your apartment type on Saturday, we really did try everything to get the boiler repaired. Thank you for being understanding and accepting the smaller apartment. If you come back in the future, we'll absolutely reverse the situation for you. You book a Mini apartment and we'll upgrade...

We stayed at Staying Cool for one night (a Thursday) in December, with plans to go shopping, enjoy the Christmas market, and maybe go for dinner for my birthday. We arrived at Staying Cool a few hours before check-in, but the concierge very kindly took our bags and ensured that they were delivered to our room ahead of our arrival.... More

Just got back from my stay at one of the 20th floor penthouses (room #2001), I had a little get together for my 22nd birthday and I can honestly say I could not have wished for a better venue!

Just got back from another stay at the Rotunda in Brum which we use every year on our xmas shopping trip. As usual everything was first class. Staff couldnt be more helpful, rooms are first class, extremely clean. Dont really know why people go anywhere else. We will be booking again for next year.

Fantastic location, 5 minutes from New Street Station and bang in the middle of shopping central (and the start of the German markets whilst we were there). Despite being only 1pm, our room was ready on arrival and we were 'wow'ed by the view on entry to room 1801 - overlooking amazing city views and main shopping streets. Fantastic funky... More

Amazing views, amazing location, amazing room, amazing staff! A must stay! Enough said. A fantastic alternative to the normal boring hotel chains, fairly priced and had so much modern character! Will definitely be returning regularly to this lovely hotel.

What a great place - we came here for a Saturday night to go to the Christmas Markets and a night out for a girls reunion. There were 4 of us, so we booked a "MAXI" room. We were on the 17th floor (I think there are either 20 or 21 floors so we were up high!) and WHAT a... More
