Three of us stayed here in one room for two nights in January. We had a 6am flight into Birmingham so were up all night and when we were finally able to check in at 2pm I had to make my own bed - on a bunk bed, after being awake 30+ hours straight. The room was uncomfortably warm, even... More

Room offered had a sweet tobacco smell in the corridor – the pungent mellow smell of weed was wafting throughout, and into the bedroom. Complained to reception, raised some giggles with the staff and fellow residents checking in – they were happy to give me a room on another floor. Which was thankfully weed free. I slept like a log,... More

Stayed here for a lads night away and although all we cared for was a bed we had a room with a double bed and bunk bed! Having booked a room with 2 twins only to be told they had none left. The smell in the 3 different rooms was terrible from smoke to paint, the toilet did not flush... More

I often stay here for nights out in Birmingham. The hotel is great value especially if you book early. Rooms are clean but basic as expected. Beds are comfortable although showers are a bit of a squeeze but if you've stayed at Ibis before you may know this and it isn't a problem. The hotel is in walking distance from... More

I stayed here for one night whilst going to a gig. That's the first plus with this hotel, it's literally next to the O2 academy. A very short walk will take you into the shopping area. Very comfortable hotel with a great minimalist style but done in a stylish way. I love the rooms where they've made the best of... More

I know this is called a budget hotel, but for £70 a night for a double you expect more than an up market prison cell. Beds uncomfortable, and toilets that don't flush properly. Had to fill the small waste bin with water to flush the toilet

Me and my partner stayed here, it was a last minute trip for business. When we arrived there were so many things to complain about but it wasn't due to the staff so I kept quiet. I felt like I was in a prison, the awful smell in the corridors to the thin, pathetic excuse for a mattress. I know... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Generally a no frills experience. Room provided with bare minimal essentials and sparsely furnished. Some white powder/chalk around the bed but other than this generally clean and tidy. I can see this being a perfect place to stay on a night out with friends but as a couple it wasn't quite the right setting for... More

Stayed 25th and26th January for NEC exhibition.Room is clean with good shower and surprisingly comfortable bed.No toiletries or hairdryer with hard flooring not carpets.However if you want accommodation right next to the airport and a monorail ride to the NEC this hotel is ideal.Was not prepared to pay 150 pounds a night for the Novotel so the Ibis Budget was...

Of all the budget hotels I've stayed in this was the first where from the moment I walked in I really felt it. The rooms are efficiently designed so they can be small but there is nothing wrong with them. If you are just looking for a place to simply lay your head down at night you won't go wrong... More
