“Night before flight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Easy to find, Parker at short/medium stay as flying early morning. Arrive at hotel at 8.30 pm. Check in quick and easy. Helpful staff.
Had a snack at the bar, very nicely presented.

Room clean and comfortable great for one night.

Room Tip: Great value

My husband and I stayed here for the night before going on holiday. We paid £29 for the room. The bed linen was fresh and so clean and white, as were the towels. The bed was very comfortable. The room was basic but we didn't need anymore. The staff were helpful and booking in was easy. We look forward to our next holiday and staying here again. Would recommend it.

If you have an early flight or just fancy not rushing in the morning this is a great hotel. Right next to the terminal building, restaurant has a reasonable selection and as ever with Ibis you get what you expect; comfort, plain but fit for purpose rooms....can't complain. No radio 4 on the tv/radio channels....but all in all perfectly acceptable.

Room Tip: High up was perhaps less noisey

The ibis is just a few hundred metres from the airport terminal,so very convenient for fliers.
Reception clean,friendly staff,we generally stay after a Tenerife flight,which lands after midnight,if you fancy a drink before bed its not a problem,no matter how late.
Rooms are clean,tea and coffee making facilities,TV with films should you wish to pay for them,toilet and shower,very clean,with soap and towels.very comfy bed.
Breakfast starts at 4.00 am for the early riser(continental style) then eight till twelve hot buffet breakfast ,sampled many of these :). Consists of quality bacon,very nice sausage (not the cheapo kind) scrambled egg and beans+brown,white bread,baguettes,cereal ,yoghurt,meats ,cheese,actimel,teas and coffees,pretty good value
Things I don't like,Internet is not free,prices rise and fall greatly,paid £80.00 one week for room and 8 days parking,couple of months later,they wanted £220 same deal. ????
All in all good hotel when the price is right.

Thank you for choosing Ibis Birmingham Airport for your recent stay in Birmingham. We have read your comments about the hotel and we greatly appreciate that you took the time to write them, as our guests’ satisfaction is our main priority. However at the same time I was very disappointed to hear about your issue with the internet usage fees and our pricing policy.
As with most budget hotels, the hotel does indeed charge for extra services such as laundry, car park, broadband and etc. Therefore, we offer rates with the internet inclusive which can help you to save some money.
In regards to the price fluctuation, hotel operates a flexible pricing policy, as with low cost airlines, the price depends very much on levels demands. This Policy allows us to promote very attractive prices on some days, but prices are higher on days when there is higher demand. This usually revolves around specific events in the area. As ever from a commercial perspective, price is always subject to supply and demand.
Thank you for taking the time to bring this matter to our attention as guest feedback is invaluable to our efforts to continually improve the quality of our services. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Ibis Birmingham Airport again in the future.

Kind regards,

Carlos Vieira

Clean. Efficient, friendly service. Large rooms (that are the same as most other Ibis hotels). Tea and Coffee in the room.

Nice looking bar, resturant and not horrendously over priced. About 5 mins walk from the terminal. We only heard the airport very quietly in the morning - it did not disturb us in the slightest.

And only £43 if you buy in advance! This surely is the king of the budget hotels.

Also, we called the hotel first to discuss parking. They have a deal with the NCP car park across the road - drive up and take the ticket in the machine at Car Park 3 then the staff at the hotel will give you an exit pass that costs £16 / 24hrs. Or book ahead at a long stay airport car park and take the shuttle. Your choice...

Stayed one night before an early morning flight.
Check in a little slow but that was due to people not knowing how to queue.
Room was found clean. We did not eat at the hotel we just walked over to the M&S shop in the airport and got some eats and drinks.
Requested early morning call which we received.
All in all woke up fresh as we both had a great nights sleep.

The Ibis Birmingham Airport is a functional airport hotel which is conveniently located directly on the airport site. Therefore, even through window isolation, some minor noise can be heard, however it is not significant. The rooms are small but functional, the shower is a plastic unit, which seemed to be clean
