Stopped at Pentahotel for a night out in Birmingham, great hotel. We paid a bargain £34 for a twin room, and to be honest we've paid £100plus for similar standard hotels. It's location is in walking distance of New Street station, Broad St, Arcadian & O2 Academy. It's trendy approach will appeal to younger guests, the reception being in a... More

Stayed here for one night and was really impressed. The hotel was a modern chic hotel with amazing staff who were really helpful in everything you asked of them. The rooms were basic but clean and provided everything you require for a stay. The hotel offers free pool tables and also has a 24 hour bar. Breakfast was very good... More

Stayed there for a Saturday, and the hotel has pretty much all you need. Very good location, near to the train station, and also very central to see some of the atractions of the city. Best thing of the hotel is the loby and restaurant, with big TV screen perfect to watch a football game. The rooms are all right,... More

What a great location. The public areas are really nice the rooms are clean but basic. Breakfast is amazing. Only 5 minutes walk to the Bullring, the Chinese Centre, Theatreland and New Street Railway Station. For all you party animals only 10 minutes to Broad Street.

The hotel is conveniently located about a 10min walk from the Bullring shopping centre. 12 parking spaces under the hotel for £12 per 24 hours which is good. Plenty if other parking close by. Now, other reviewers have complained about the reception desk being part of the bar. What's the problem with this?! There isn't one. The decor of the... More

Stayed here for a Saturday night out on the town. Very close to the bull ring and about 5 mins walk to the mailbox. This hotel was perfect for our stay. The staff where very helpful and nothing seemed to much for them. All the staff took time to say hello and some had a laugh and a joke with... More

I stayed with friends so we could see a show at the NIA and do some shopping. There are some great features with this hotel but also some not-so-great features. Close to Bullring and Train Station but still a good walk to good restaurants and bars (over looking a couple of massage lounges). Taxi ride to Brindley Place. The bar,... More

Dear Traveller, Thanks for the review of your stay with us last weekend. I am sorry that we didnt quite manage to get everything perfect for you. As mentioned to other members, we are very close to starting work on our bedrooms which will include signature penta beds. Hopefully this will be enough for you to consider returning with your...

Clean, cheap, friendly staff and close to Birmingham city center. The breakfast was brilliant, the atmosphere was great inside the hotel bar areas, lovely vibe to chill out and play free pool in. Only downside was the bed was a little hard and the noise from other rooms came through the walls, but nothing too loud. Great place to stay... More

Stayed here last Saturday night was pleasantly surprised after my wife told me what she had paid. Nice central location, handy for Brinklow Place and Hippodrome Theatre. The room had what you needed, comfortable bed, nice shower & clean. The worst thing was the bottom of the door in the bathroom was showing bad signs of wear from water and... More

The hotel is in an ideal place- around 7 minutes to walk to the city centre. The hotel does not have the best scenery, next to a car wash and there are lots of derelict buildings in the area. The reception area is slightly odd. We thought we were entering the bar but it was actually the reception area. The... More
