We stayed in a 2bed penthouse apartment. The accommodation has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Quality kitchen fittings, neff, poggen pohl etc. The bedrooms had quality bedding and the en-suites were clean and fresh with lovely toiletries and hair dryers. Everything was thoughtfully considered for the comfort of guests.

Was lovely and relaxing, we enjoyed the complimentary wine whilst looking out over the city. Very comfortable bed, sky TV and good WiFi. Staff were friendly and helpful, check in...

Stopped in the Rotunda on the 16th floor for the weekend of the Good Food Show with another couple of friends . Fabulous apartment and much preferable to a hotel room . Access from the car park with luggage can be a bit of a pain struggling past all the shoppers and try not to arrive in Birmingham at 4-30...

HI 606neilr48 Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We are so please you enjoyed your experience overall. I just wanted to let you know we have spoken to our milk supplier to report the issue. Sorry about the parking, being so central and in the pedestrian area means Bullring is our closest place to...

Stayed here in May when we got upgraded. No such luck this time but we did get a free bottle of wine and even better views. But we were only here for one night and at £96 it's a bargain. The free parking would cost £20, and the free oranges, juicer, coffee, muesli and granola saves buying breakfast out. It...

I stayed here for one night with my partner, as we wanted to visit the Christmas markets which were literally on our doorstep. We were welcomed by smiley and friendly reception staff as we entered the building. The apartment was beautiful, well presented, cleaned to a good standard and the views were amazing. I would 100% recommend friends and family...

We stayed over for a big night out with friends. The "mini' apartment we had on the 18th floor was very spacious and funky looking - fabulous views over the City, the fresh orange juice (with oranges in the fridge!) was a welcome cure for the mild hangovers. Very stylish place, very helpful front desk (thanks Alex!), highly recommended. I...

Just had a weekend break with my friend at the Rotunda and left feeling somewhat underwhelmed. The view and location really are 5 star, couldn't ask for more dramatic or closer to shopping and nightlife which gave a really good vibe and made going out in the evening really safe and easy. I'm not an overly fussy person but thought...
