Looks great from outside but that's it, rooms dated and unfit for purpose. Stayed in a lot of places and this is down there with the worst. Iron and fag burns on carpets beds broken shower warm at best and weak

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in and I have travelled cattle class in developing nations. The stench, the grime, the dilapidation are akin to to a war zone. This place is a headline waiting to happen and you just might as well snuggle down under some cardboard with the tramps on New Street.

I wish I didn't have to rate this place with even 1 star. It was quite easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It was dirty, it was smelly and I never felt safe from the minute I got there. Someone also tried getting in our room during the night. If it hadn't been for the case that... More

Sadly my title doesn't even to it justice. How The Birmingham Hotel is still in business is amazing, having a large free car park really is the only good point. I booked here as I needed a last minute triple room for me and some work colleagues that could also fit a van onto the car park, and this was... More

Very surprised, turned up after a night out and surpassed what was expected. Booked it for a shag and stayed for two! 10/10 Aside from that the tv was a Nice size 34" and the beds weren't half bad. Showers could've done with work but got the job done ;) Walls were very thin almost knocked our lass through it

Unfortunately TripAdvisor does not do negatives and requires me to "rate" this hovel, which is why i was forced to give it one spot. Dirty, shabby, room stank of stale cigarette smoke and was stained brown with further stains of I know not what across the walls, net curtains were black and frayed, cigarette burn holes in the mattress. No... More

Stayed here for one night before an early flight from Birmingham airport, a convenient 15 minute drive away and hotel is right by train station, one stop from city centre so should be a little gold mine particularly as there is plenty of on site parking. On arrival the building looks fairly modern and well kept and check in was... More

The room was paid for by my work who try to find low price accommodation so I'm used to staying in places that can be rough around the edges. This however was just too rough. Polite receptionist. The reception area and staircase smelled strongly of some kind of air freshener with a potent undernote of stale tobacco smoke. I noticed... More

On arriving at the Birmingham Hotel with my Mum, Auntie and Cousin for a Girly weekend there appeared to be nothing wrong with it. The service on the front desk was fine although the reception area a bit smelly and they offered us a local Chinese menu to order some food in, lovely! Once we got to our rooms we... More
