We booked room late to see show at nia. For £55 b&b so close to complex and still handy for shopping cannot be faulted. They should advertise parking better though. Cost £10 for 24hrs and on description was a yard out the back. It was actually a secure well lit basement to the hotel with lift to reception. The 24hrs... More

A very pleasant one night's stay. Staff friendly and helpful at all times, room very clean, comfortable, and quiet. Secure parking at a fair rate for a city hotel. Complimentary breakfast good in quantity and quality. Will certainly return.

What you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Standard reasonably sized room, clean with friendly staff. Parking and internet usage is extra on-top of your bill and no restaurant which I believe is standard in all Holiday Inn Express hotels.

Friendly staff on arrival. Room clean and confortable, although didn't like the pillows even though there was a choice of soft or hard (personal preference, others might find them OK). TV picture a bit fuzzy. bathroom clean and good shower. Breakfast OK nothing special, but efficient staff topping up and clearing away. For the price could have included a few... More

Good location for the centre (walk to Broad St/canals 5 mins one way, business/shopping districts 5 mins the other) on a quiet street. Acceptable room for the night, clean, good shower and bed, spacious for the price, small TV with only 5 channels + Sky News and very bad reception. Continental buffet breakfast included (with undrinkable coffee). Robotically efficient receptionists... More

I stayed in this hotel after leaving the other hotel i was originally booked into after seeing how dirty it was (Britannia Birmingham). The staff at reception were exceptionally polite, friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, tidy and spacious with good modern facilities. There is no restaurant in the hotel, however there is a complimentary breakfast. The food... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night in July and it was great. The staff at check-in were very friendly and informative and the room was clean and comfortable. Location is great, just a 5 minute walk to Broad Street and not much further from New Street and the Bullring shopping centre. Have to say that the shower was... More

Although I have given it a great deal of thought there was not a single thing that I could find wrong with this hotel. The car parking is safe and secure, the welcome on the reception was lovely, the room was spotlessly clean, the bed was lovely and comfortable and the buffett breakfast had enough variety to please everyone.

The hotel is one of the nearest to the main New St. train station, which attracted us to it. It had pleasant rooms and a nice breakfast.
