If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Birmingham that has friendly, helpful & efficient staff, excellent location for shopping, a hop, skip and a jump from the train station, amazing space with awesome panoramic views and quirky little touches then this is the place for you. I promise you, you won't be disappointed. We WILL be back!

Stayed in the smallest apartment. Would definitely stay again, perfect central location. Close parking discounted to £10 per night. Fantastic views. Quiet. Apartment has everything you need, except a dishwasher, which I believe they are looking into. Sky TV has intermittent signal. Got a good rate with Agoda for £87

We stayed in the Penthouse and Maxi suite which were both amazing rooms. They were very clean and provided great facilities. Iv'e stayed somewhere similar and this was the best place I've stayed in. All the guest invited for the birthday/hen weekend could not critique it as it was great.

I stay away from home very frequently (most weeks) and therefore feel like I know what's good and what's bad in mid-range hotels right across the UK. I arrived on a baking August day. Check-in was easy. Headed right up to one of the upper floors. Opened the door to my room and it was like a sauna. Immediately called... More

The apartments available to stay in here are just gorgeous. Immaculately presented in minimalist style, which might not be to everyone's taste but is very well done indeed. The bathrooms are a brilliant size, the beds very comfortable, and the floor to ceiling windows are just amazing at night. You can be all snug in your bed and look down... More

My wife and I decided to come to Birmingham for a short city break. Actually one of the things that make it attractive was this accommodation and the promise of views of Birmingham. It didn't disappoint. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The room felt surprisingly spacious considering that it was actually quite a small space. One of the... More

I was actually born in Birmigham, but every time I go back these days I'm amazed at how much its changed - for the better! I've travelled to some amazing cities and stayed in some of the coolest apartments and staying cool ranks amongst the best of them.
