3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I wasn't massively impressed by the Ibis Styles. The location is good - near to Broad Street - though car parking is £12 compared to the Hampton by Hilton on Broad St at £10. I tried to get the lift to reception to find that it wasn't working, but no signs advised me of this. A call to reception was made and I was advised to speak to a security guard, though none were around. I was advised to walk out of the car park, around the block, and up to reception which was not ideal with luggage. The room itself was fine, though a few items were broken (including the lock to the door). I had a comfortable night, but overall was expecting more from my visit - a vending machine would have been useful, for example. I'd stay again if needs be, but will try elsewhere before I do so.

I stayed for 4 nights from the 9th September. The room was lovely, the bed very comfortable - liked the touch of a chocolate as a treat. Breakfast was good too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is great for the city centre and was excellent for the training course I was on as the venue was on Lionel Street. All in all and excellent stay for a good price.

I was in Birmingham to attend a conference at the ICC and booked in this hotel because of it's low cost. The hotel was a 10 minute walk (at most) from the conference centre, and was an amazing value for money. The rooms were large, the bed comfortable, and breakfast was much better than anticipated - cereals, toast, yoghurt, sausage, eggs, and beans. I think the hotel is undergoing a re-branding of some sort to an Ibis Styles. It felt like my room was recent redecorated as it was very trendy. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I was in Birmingham - it was great.

We stayed in the Lionel Street Hotel last weekend of August.

It was the Holiday Inn Express , and is soon to become an Ibis hotel.

Great location, close distance to shops and nightlife.

Rooms very comfortable, Breakfast a bit hit and miss but adequate for the cost of the hotel stay.

Will certainly stay again.

Stayed here with my wife and 2 children and was very impressed. Clean, tidy, helpful professional staff, great rooms, nice bathroom, what more could you ask for ? (maybe bacon with the breakfast but hey, small sacrifice). Would definitely stay here again, and with the Shakespeare pub next door for superb food and real ales, heaven !!!!!

Stayed one night as part as the cadburys deal. Had an interconnecting bedroom which was very big. Large and very clean bathrooms. Breakfast was lovely just help yourself to anything which the kids were happy about. Just a short walk into centre where we had a lovely meal in the evening down by the canals. Reception staff very helpful. Giving us a map on how to get to cadburys world. The staff made a fuss of the kids which the kids loved. Would definately stay again and have already recommended this hotel to friends. Thanks again for a very enjoyable stay
