I stayed at Staying Cool many times while working near Birmingham and always felt welcome and at home. The rooms feel very elegant and clean and I always enjoyed the selection of coffees and cereals available in the room. There are lovely touches that really go the extra mile, from board games to oranges for making your own orange juice!... More

Me and my fiancé had a brilliant one night stay at the rotunda. The staff were brilliant, right from booking up until departure. They are very polite and helpful. The hotel itself is in a perfect location, bang in the centre of the main shopping area. It is a 30 second walk to a cinema, 5 minutes to the train... More

The Rotunda has the perfect location, right in the heart of City Center. Close to shopping and restaurants and right by the market if you want to cook your own meals.. The views are magnificent the higher up you go, I would highly recommend staying at Rotunda.

The first thing you see on entering the apartment is the panoramic view over Birmingham through the wall to wall window. The studio apartment was well appointed. There is everything you need to make expresso coffee as well as the normal drinks sachets. Breakfast is not included, but fresh oranges and a juicer are provided as well as mini packets... More

If I could give a 3 and a half then I would. I will start with the positives. You can't complain about the location, smack bang next to the bullring and a short distance to two major railway stations. Check in went seamlessly and the man on reception was friendly and helpful. We stayed in 1807 and the view from... More

Hi Nicky Thank you for reviewing your stay in February, we were sorry to read that your stay although enjoyable, was less than perfect in some areas. We have since your stay, installed fans in all of our apartments to circulate cool air. As you stayed in February when the weather was cooler, we can only assume the heating may... More

My husband and I live in Brum and the Rotunda is one of those places that you pass daily but never actually get to go in. We were not disappointed. Everything from booking, to staying to leaving was perfect. The apartment had everything you could wish for and the views were amazing. We will deffinitely be going back.

Being from Birmingham, but not having lived there for over 20years, the Rotunda has always been an icon of my childhood and getting the chance to stay there was a bit of a dream come true!

Location is great, right between the two major train stations so you can effortlessly walk to either. Also smack dab in the center of the pedestrian mall filled with shops, restaurants, etc. The rooms are really small studio apartments, with an eating/sitting area and sleeping area, for those who want to have those amenities, it's great. The room I had... More

Beautiful contemporary apartment. Excellent view and walking distance from most bars. Receptionist staff were very friendly. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I recommend a room with sliding windows. Makes for a better experience.

Perfect location, stylish, regularly maintained, great views from apartment 1612 over New Street Station & the customer service team are probably the best I've ever come across (efficient, helpful, friendly). It's also great to get Sky Tv, the coffee maker, fully equipped kitchen & gorgeous soaps
