We read some of the reviews for this hotel and almost didn't book but we were looking to minimise the amount we spent on a hotel and have money left for meals etc. In the end we only paid £35 a night and we felt that the hotel was good value for this price. Yes the hotel is basic and... More

After reading 2013 reviews I was expecting an improvement on the comments left but it appears there hasn't been any.. Our room reeked of damp, the bath had mould around the rim, the sink was falling off the wall, the hot tap in the bath wouldn't come on & then it wouldn't turn off properly. The shower rail had paint... More

Damp, smelly, crappy bed, tv doesn't work, flee bitten, the bath water is bright orange. The area is a pure delight, featuring rat infested dumps, a kebab house with what I can only say must be pictures of vomit in the window. There's as much chance of me sampling their breakfast as a DFS sale ending. It's so dirty, even... More

Stayed here for one night, upon arrival i noticed lots of people just sitting around the reception area, checked in, got given my key, used the stairs to first floor to find people sitting on the stairs with their phones plugged in, walked down a poorly lit corridor, heard various noises coming from other rooms, eventually found my room, opened...

They say, you get what you pay for but this place is on a different level! The room was small, basic, needs refurbishing, shower was pathetic and leaked everywhere, had mould on the walls, was noisy outside and inside the hotel. However, the bed was comfortable. The lobby area was filled with 25-30 foreign nationals playing music on their phones,... More

Stayed at this 'hotel' for the first and last time over this weekend. Should never be advertised as a hotel like on its website when it is clearly a hostel. Not in the most desirable of surroundings, when we arrived we could see from the outside what a tip it was but hoped for the best once inside. The reception... More

I stayed here with my partner in February, understanding the refurbishment plans and not expecting a great deal for a budget hotel. However, based on the website, and third party images, was expecting more of the hotel to have been refurbished. Receptionist was fine. Pretty standard process of customer service and answered all queries well. The room: We must have... More

One of the worst hotels I've ever had the misfortune to stay in. Located in a run down part of Birmingham the approach to the place wasn't the best of starts. The welcome at reception was lukewarm to say the least. Walking to our room we felt we had booked into a hostel for the homeless. Peeling paintwork, yellow and... More

Receptionist was a little cold and unwelcoming on arrival, the room was clean but more than a little dated, it was freezing cold when we arrived because there is no electric in the room until you place your key card in the slot, the establishment is 3 stars self classified but i would give the hotel 2 stars and thats...
