“Good value and close to central Birmingham”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Nice size room with separate bathroom, the shower is really really weak and no pressure, on site parking but you have to pay for it at an extra £3 per day, only about a ten minute walk to the Bullring shopping centre but via a dodgy underpass, although their is a surface crossing point a little bit further along the road, basic but quite clean.

Nice little hotel very well located not right in the middle of the centre but well within walking distance to and from the centre. Freindly staff and tidy rooms and certainly not overpriced. Stayed there a few times now and would certainly stay again.

Typical motel style hotel but in the city close to all amenities especially hurst st and theatre district. It's a bed for the night no facilities. Food options are poor so would opt to eat in nearby restaurants or cafe. Car park is a bit like Tetris. Be warned if you don't get there early you will struggle for a space. Some of the staff were pleasant a couple of reception team were quite aggressive and almost rude. But it's a basic budget so you get get what you pay for.

Cabin style rooms, very spacious. Went with my sister for two nights, it is very close to center walk-able from the new street station. Rooms are like cabins, it was quite cheap and it was comfy. I booked from the website.

Decent hotel, located few minutes from the bullring. Very cheap compared to other city centre hotels and no problems with parking as it is on site. The beds are comfy and the rooms are cleaned each day, the rooms are warm and cosy. I would recommend the hotel to couples, I am not sure if its good for families as the walls aren't sound proof, so if someone is talking etc you can hear it.. There is a smoke detector in the room with the bed, so I think some people have a cigarette in the bathroom the smokes seeps through, in the morning I could smell cigarettes in the bathroom, it's not the hotels fault, but some people don't care. Only other minor negative is there is no bin in the room only a small bin in the bathroom, it's only a problem if you stay a few nights. Overall I would book again with ibis. It's very good value for money, I prefer it to premier inn.

This is more like a traditional motel than a hotel, but the rooms are clean, it is very close to the city centre and the staff are very helpful. Breakfast was good, wide choice of cereal, fruit and cooked food. Good value for money.

Stopped in this hotel for one night end of March 13, the hotel cost us £56 for a one night stay in a double room (no breakfast included). Check in was simple and fast, reception girl seemed polite. The room itself was very average; it had one single plug socket in, yes one single plug socket, which was next to the TV so if you wanted a cup of tea you had to take the kettle over next to the TV, which disappointed me to be honest. The walls are paper thin, can hear everything next door!

Parking is £3 for 24 hours, which isn't bad at all and the car park is secure. (If it is snowing or has any snow on the ground, avoid this place like the plague, as the car park is not gritted and is like an ice rink getting off it, as it is on a slope to get out.)

Overall, I don't think I will stay at this Ibis again, but like I say, it is not a bad hotel in all.
