After taking over the Ramada Encore, I was keen to stay and see what Penta was all about. I booked a surprise stay for my partners birthday as a treat - and that's exactly what our stay was! Less than a few minutes walk away from the Mailbox, Bullring, and other City attractions, location wise I couldn't have asked for... More

Everything about the hotel is trending and clearly designed to be a hip and cool place to be. If you don't have a young bone in your body then this is not the place for you. There is no formal reception ,it's the corner of the great bar that together with the pool table takes up thr ground floor. A... More

This is by far my favourite hotel I've ever stayed in, ever! I stayed here with a couple of friends for a joint birthday celebration, we don't live that far away from the city centre but the price is such good value for money (it was basically the equivalent of getting a taxi home) so we couldn't resist! The staff... More

Stayed here on a Friday on a celebratory night out with colleagues... Following the rebranding and fit out to the new Penta style, the hotel seems more welcoming. In particular, the bar area adjacent to the restaurant is most pleasant with large TVs, comfortable seating and it smells great! Rooms are good, modern, clean. The hotel is perfectly located for...

I spent only one night with my girlfriend on the 27th of June. I have to say: very wellcoming from the staff, we could do early check-in (12.00) because the room was ready, stunning decoration of the lounge, the room was amazing (decent size, bathroom refurbished recently, stunning tv screen...), very clean, modern hotel. I didn't use the parking, so... More

Only down side of this hotel is the location. As others have said if the car park is full ( not many spaces available in the hotel car park) its parking on the road in a location you wouldn't want to visit other than in broad daylight. It's a short walk to the Mailbox where there is a good choice... More

I am a little torn because whilst the hotel in itself is fine, my stay did not get off to the best start. I have to warn anyone travelling here that the car parking situation is awful.
