Very nice rooms wifi, bar and all other luxury facilities. Bar staff exceptional as we wanted a rough guide of local restaurants, bars and attractions.

Parking was no problem and prices are reasonable too. Being in the middle of the City Centre, the hotel is located on the golden mile of Birmingham, we had no problems getting around and most importantly the service was great.

Positives - great central location; secure parking reasonably priced; lovely reception/bar area; good security; friendly staff
BUT the room we were in (222) second floor was on the side of the hotel where everyone who has been out goes to get cabs - shouting, screaming, beeping horns - from about 12:30am till around 4am so sleep was a luxury I didn't get. The sound proofing in the room was non- existent. Apart from that major issue, the room itself does not live up to 4 star standard with tired decor and stained carpets.
If I needed to stay in a birmingham central location again I'd find somewhere with double glazing.

Firstly I would like you for your comment and the positive and constructive way in which you have made your feelings known. I feel for any guest, when they say they had a disturbed night and would sympathise.
The Novotel Birmingham Centre is on Broad Street, a busy and very popular destination for night life. We are working with the local emergency services to reduce the siren noise and deal with external issues quickly. We have also reviewed our glazing/sound proofing.
We will always give priority to guests who wish to have room away from the front of the hotel, as rooms towards the rear of the hotel appear to suffer much less from this issue.
We can obvioously not legislate for those members of the public who are intent on making a disturbance outside of the hotel, however I can assure you this is infrequent and our night team are vigilant of such matters.
I hope that you will consider the Novotel for their next visit to Birmingham, whereupon we can display our commitment to a 'good nights sleep' for every guest! Thank you.
Kind regards, Richard Marsh, General Manager

The rooms had a 1960s feel and were advertised as being modern and luxurious.
The toilet was separate from the bathroom which was bizarre.
The sink was blocked from what seemed like sick from the previous guest.
The decor was terrible.
Bed was small and not comfortable.
The bar did not have the ingredients to make a number of drinks listed on the menu and the bar man was incredibly slow at preparing drinks.
We were woken early by a drilling sound.
The car parking facilities were not great for a large vehicle.
The hotel was over priced.
