My partner and I spent two nights at the Hotel La Tour whilst on a visit to Birmingham. We chose it because it's central and is a comtempoary hotel which is what we normally choose. The first problem with this hotel is the car parking. Although this is explained on their website it's not until you arrive that you appreciate... More

This hotel perhaps tries to be of a quality that it's not quite achieving. The décor is modern although a little cold in the public areas, minimal in bedrooms with as little furniture as possible to get away with (the wardrobe is fine for one night but not much longer!). The bed was large and incredibly comfortable! The room was... More

I stayed at Hotel La Tour, after a night out in Birmingham. The staff was friendly, helpful & professional. The room was comfortable & clean, with LCD flat screen TV, air conditioning, & tea & coffee making facilities. Had a lovely stay, although was a little expensive for the room.

stayed for 2 nights. Clean, spacious, close to the train and the shopping mall. Great breakfast but a bit expensive. A nice clean room but cold impersonal style. all in all the atmosphere is super urban, cold and a bit alienating and mechanic. Reception is a small desk and you are mainly directed to use the automatic machines on the... More

I will never stay here again. I had heard good things about this place so I thought I would try it..complete disaster. The wifi didn't work and when we asked about it a very rude person said they were dealing with it, they couldn't care less. In the evening we ate in the restaurant, all the staff just stood around...

On a whim, we decided to have Afternoon Tea at Hotel La Tour as a late Valentine's outing. After tweeting the team at La Tour to check details, I phoned and booked for Saturday afternoon.

Our room was nice but let down by the disabled facilities in the bathroom. We were not informed of this when checking in and when we mentioned it at check out the staff did'nt really care. Shame really seemed like a nice hotel.

The wifi did not work in the hotel, for our entire stay. We complained numerous times. They said they were looking into it, but it never worked. We travelled from Ireland, and part of the reason we chose this hotel was for the wifi. Also, the shower leaked and the room smelled of damp. We complained to the duty manager... More
