“1 Night stay 24th November 2012”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We stayed for 1 night bed and breakfast as we were going to the Steve Harley concert at the nearby Symphony Hall, we checked in easily and parked the car in their underground car park £14 for 24 hours - payable on checkout well worth it for ease and comfort. The room was large and comfy and quiet with a big double bed we had a good nights sleep (I found the room a bit too hot for comfort in the night but I find the majority of hotel rooms like this). But all in all had a good nights sleep, breakfast was buffet style and plentiful and hot, check out was swift and easy, all the staff we found polite and helpful, we were both impressed and will definitely recommend the Novotel and plan on staying there again when we next attend a concert in the City.

i stayed here for one night whilst over working and was a bit let down. the hotel seemed very clinical and reminded me of a hospital.

the rooms had the toilet and bathroom seperated which i didn't like. service was good and the breakfast was ok.

i still prefer the premier inn's for these short overnights.

The location is the best part of this hotel with it being right in the heart of Birmingham.

Although central, the road it is on seems to be clubland. We could hear the tumping bass through the window until almost 3 am. At that time someone in the room above went to the loo, which sounded like it was in the same room. Finally slept in a not very comfortable bed.

Not the best Novotel I have stayed in, and not one I would again. Try one set back a bit (such as the Hilton - no idea how costly it is, mind). The area surrounding all these hotels was lovely, so is somewhere I would like to visit again.

Many thanks for your feedback and I’m sorry that you were disturbed. I am personally looking into this, working with the local authorities to ensure sound from clubs is not escaping into the environment, which is totally unacceptable.

Comfortable room and bed. Bathroom perfectly adequate and all very clean. I did think the bath was on the small side if you like a dip but the shower was very efficient.
The lighting in the bedroom ladies, as is often the case, is not very good for make-up application - easy to over-egg the pudding so get someone to make sure you don't end up with a Bridget Jones blusher look! Bathroom lighting is better but not much.
Hotel designers please take note, a lot of women like to sit before a mirror to do hair and make-up, the bathroom is not the location of choice for this activity, so please consider well the placement of good liighting, mirrors and elecricity outlets (for hair straighteners etc.) within bedrooms.

The separate loo is a bit dingy and the shower completely soaked the bathroom floor but all in all, excellent value for money with a really good breakfast included.
Also we left something behind which housekeeping returned to us very swiftly by post.
