“Served its purpose”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Me, my boyfriend and our friends stayed at Ibis Bordesley this week as we were going to a concert for my best friends birthday. The rooms were clean, larger than expected and bed was comfortable. The bathrooms are smart compact pods but there is enough space to move around and the shower is powerful. Only thing we found that needed improving was the service, you are waiting a while for your drinks, the girl who served us had no clue what drinks we were asking for but I don't believe it was her fault as she clearly hadn't be trained as she didn't even know how to pull a pint! But on a postivite note the staff are nice and polite and do try.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the lift.

a good hotel, I do like Ibis hotels, they are good value, modern and pretty spacious. although this hotel is a little out of the way, and on a busy carriageway, all in all it suited me fine. Ideal If you wanted to watch footballo at birmingham city, just 5 mins walk. good firm beds, and powerfull showers.

Dear Customer,
I was delighted to read your good comments about your recent stay in our Hotel. I am happy to read you enjoyed your night on our brand new beds changed at the beginning of this month. In all the Ibis hotels, we have now brand new beds of excellent quality, and we are proud of them!
Our location, although slightly outskirt, is indeed very convenient to access BCFC, at walking distance. We offer free car park, allowing you to leave your car in a secure location, and enjoy a night out in city centre, 5 minutes away by Taxi, at a very low fare, avoiding the inconvenience to park in city centre!
We look forward to welcome you back.
Best regards.

Well placed for the city centre without being in it. Very friendly and helpfull staff and very clean.
The evening meal was excellent but only one bottle of red wine available. Not one type but actually one bottle? Luckily we ordered it before anyone else.
Fairly quiet in my room although my collegue next door said the road noise in his room was quite loud? Had a good nights sleep myself.
Breakfast was good and checked out without any delay.

Room Tip: Away from the main road.

My wife and I used this hotel when we went to this year's Tory conference. While not a place of luxury, it was all that we wanted. It was easy to get to then venue, the staff were pleasant and helpful and the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The shower and toilet were housed in a sort of capsule - very neat and pleasant to use.

Very good customer service, room very clean with basic facilities provided. The room was warm and had extra towels pillows to suit all comfort tastes. The hotel was central to local restaurants and during my stay I did not eat at the hotel therefore it would be unfair to criticize. I congratulate the staff in making my stay an enjoyable stay.

The great thing about Ibis is that you know what you are going to get and you get it.

A good value for money hotel. Clean, functional and everything you need for a short stay. Friendly, good breakfast. Parking is easy and has security at night. Not far from the city centre, but on the road to the airport and NEC. Its not the Ritz, but you're not paying the Ritz price either. I would stay there again.

You can't expect much for £32 near the centre of England's second city and this place is as good a place as any to spend your money. Streets ahead of the Formule 1 next door and well worth the extra money
