As usual from Premier Inn, excellent service and welcome. I had stayed at this one before and when I told the woman on reception I'd been before, she did all she could to give me a similar room to what I'd had before (and which I'd been very pleased with as it had been big and most importantly quiet). As it was, she put us on the top (7th) floor at the end (719) and we had as silent a night as you could ever want - brilliant.
Apart from the quiet rooms, which are large and clean, as you would expect from Premier Inn, the location is the bext thing about it - you're right in the middle of the city centre, literally 2 minutes from New Street, 5 minutes from the Bull Ring and a hop from everywhere else.
One potential drawback is that there is no car park, but I parked in the City Hall mutlistorey in Brunel Street, the one they recommend on their website, and I only paid £14 for 28 hours of parking, which I though was pretty decent for a city centre car park. One tip: don't park in the Mailbox car park - it's a little bit further away from the centre (we're talking 100 yards) but it's £19 for 24 hours, whereas Brunel Street is £11.
Breakfast was great as usual - again accompanied by super friendly, laid back staff. You can't do much better for the price.
