For the amazing price you get everything that you would expect from a budget hotel. If you accept that then you should have no need to compare it to a higher priced hotel. Staff were all chipper and friendly, the lobby has nailed it with the alcohol fridge, snacks and pizzas offered round the clock at a very reasonable price... More

Stayed in the Ibis for one night whilst in Birmingham for a gig. Small, basic, clean room with free wifi. We had a room which slept three which aren't always easy to find. For £20 a person it was excellently priced and perfectly located for the 02 academy that we were visiting. Only downside was that the room had a... More

Fantastic value hotel. Room was clean and comfortable and staff we're friendly and helpful. Perfect for the 02 Academy, 2 minute walk away! Will be returning next time we have a gig at the 02. Only one very slight criticism is breakfast is a little limited, toast, croissants and cereal but it's an easy option for sore heads or it's... More

The Hotel is cheap alright but it's unreasonably small, the toilets in a airplane are bigger for crying out loud. If traveling with suitcases, finding a place to open them is difficult. We were three, but the third person had to sleep on a bunk bed that was unreasonably small, not even the standard one person size bed! Other than... More

At first I though Jesus what is this! But then when you read the hotels own ad, it is what it says on the tin. Clean, close to Bull Ring and offers simple breakfast option. You want more, simple, pay more and choose a different hotel. Ideal if your just looking for a clean room to crash in.

I stayed here on business for one night and thought it was a brilliant hotel. For less than £35 for a double room I couldn't have asked for anything more. The room was bijou but had everything I needed. The shower was powerful and hot, the room perfectly clean, and it was fully equipped with TV. Snacks are available 24/7... More

I usually stay at 4 or 5 star hotels when going away with my wife but going with a mate to see a band at the nearby O2 Academy (2 mins walk), we opted for this cheap but cheerful option. At roughly £30 for a night you get a spotlessly clean room, very compact toilet & shower cubicle, but decent... More

on 1st impressions, everything seemed fine, good central location, less then 10mins walk from new st train station. But on entering our double room, we were shocked at the lack of storage places, eg no shelves or drawers. apart from one small table type area for your computer. it gets worse, the toilet, shower +wash hand basin were all seperated!!...

As always, if you just need a crash-bed or tourist base, the Ibis hits the spot. One night in almost central Brum, for less than £50 including breakfast and car parking. Great staff, good sleep and morning shower, decent breakfast, and ready for the day ! It's not 5• but if you like value, this is the place.

one night or a couple of days this hotel is brilliant. Rooms are small and cute exactly what you need if you need to visit Birmingham for a night out. Staff are brilliant with a relaxed attitude and the breakfast is very good.
