Stayed here with my husband and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. The staff were so helpful throughout our stay which made our trip all the more special. The rooms are basic but the lounge and bar are really cool with check in at the bar which is different but looks great. Breakfast was amazing even had prosecco for... More

Had a brilliant time at pentahotel birmingham at our works Christmas party. Staff were very helpful, especially Sabrina Walsh. We also stayed there for 1 night and thought the rooms were spacious and lovely and the breakfast was amazing. Couldn't fault this hotel at all .

This hotel has a initial impact on you as being different. But once you get past that you can't fault the place. I work in hospitality (in training) and all I can say is wow! Food and drink is incredible

I stayed over the festive holidays while visiting family in Birmingham. It was my first stay at Pentahotel and I will be returning. The staff were super friendly, chatty and helpful. The rooms were clean modern and cosy too. The food was great with a lovely atmosphere! I would recommend to anyone, great hotel in a great city

Great hotel, first stay with penta and enjoyed my experience. You check in at the bar which is cool, the staff at both reception and in the restaurant couldn't do enough for you. Rooms are basic but staff in the restaurant were explaining the refurbishment. The pool tables are free to use which is great as well as the pinball... More

I understand that there is a refurb in progress and that the style is meant to be quirky, however don't think they have it quite right for lady business visitors. Even the gents travelling with us thought that the atmosphere, decor and facilities were very 'blokey' and other ladies in our group said that they would not stay here if... More

This hotel is in a reasonable location in that it is close to the large NEC shopping centre. However, the standard of the hotel itself is a let down. I have stayed in the pentahotel in Reading and it thrashes this one hands down. The room sin this hotel are not very nice overall. Our toilet blocked with about three... More

Stayed at the pentahotel for 2 nights. From looking at it on website, perception very different. Bedrooms very small, ceiling damp in room, beds not very comfortable. Had breakfast on arrival to hotel which cost €30 for 2 people and breakfast was cold. Not acceptable at all. Would not recommend this hotel at all.
