Excellent city position, close to centre and transport links. Good secure parking. Rooms clean and well looked after. The electric heater is a little tricky to get and set the right temperature. Giant bed and oh so comfy. The room was as silent as the grave! No disturbance from the outside or near rooms. Excellent breakfast choices and you can...

Dear adtelfer Thank you so much for your positive and informative review of Conference Aron Hotel. You stayed in one of our 'Executive City Double' bedrooms which have King size beds and it's pleasing to read that you found the bed to be comfy as these rooms were recently equipped with new mattresses and bedding.

Nice hotel to stay in when visiting the Christmas German market. Me, my boyfriend, my sister and my sisters boyfriend stayed here. We were looking for a cheap enough hotel for the one night whilst doing some shopping. Upon arrival we queued to check in. Check in was easy and quick. Staff were friendly enough.

Dear Jesfrizztalbot Thank you for your review of Conference Aston Hotel and it is so unfortunate that your stay was spoiled by the lack of hot water and I apologise for the manner in which our Reception Team handled the issue.

This is the first time I've stayed at this hotel and was attending a conference in one of the university buildings next door. Room was cosy although they were clean. For one person the bed was fine but if this was for 2 people it would have been very cramped! Reception staff were very helpful. Food was good

Dear Gillian F Thank you for your review of Conference Aston Hotel and judging by your comments, you stayed in one of our single bedrooms which are fitted with 3/4 size beds instead of singles. This does compromise a bit on bedroom space but allows for a more comfortable stay for our guests. It's pleasing to read that our staff...

Really nice hotel to get away from the hustle of the market for the night. Staff were kind and helpful. Having a shower in the morning however was a fright. There was no hot water for the duration of our stay (which I understand cannot be helped by the staff) and was really inconvenient.

This hotel is in the University campus, but is walking distance to the centre of Birmingham. We went to have a night out drinking and in the evening it is quicker to walk than to get a taxi, due to the amount of traffic. The hotel itself has a bar and nice restaurant. The breakfast was lovely and had all...

Stayed the one night. Great location, a short walk from the city centre. The car park took a bit of negotiation mind. Staff were friendly and the rooms are modern band clean. The breakfast was fab. Overall the price was very fair.
