This hotel is mid price range and you get what you pay for. It's in the city centre with Bull Ring and New Street shopping within 5 mins. If you arrive by train take the new Southwest exit and you're almost opposite the Hotel. If you're driving there's a NCP in the next street. It really is so well situated for everythng in the city centre it has a lot to offer.
It's feels like a 1970's type Hotel, a bit jaded, worn carpets, dark corridors, dated decor and only one of the two lifts worked. When i arrived there was a long queue of people waiting to check in which was something I've rarely experienced in other hotels. After the long wait to check in there was a long wait for the one operational lift. Exiting the lift, the corridor was dark only lit up when sensors monitored you moving.
My bedroom was on the 2nd floor looking over the road which became noisy around 6.00 a.m. Strangely the decor was definitely 1970 psychadelic colours and designs but with a large 'all singing all dancing ' SmartTV ! There's a safe, fridge, iron and hair dryer provided which is really brilliant but there was no mirror in the room atall which was odd so you had to dry your hair without seeing what you were doing?.Bed was huge and comfy with lovely duvet and pillows. Bathroom was well appointed, bath + shower, shampoos, creams, big towels fab !
Breakfast offered good choice and replenished regularly, again the decor and furniture in the restaurant area was so dated but the staff were helpful and friendly.
I'd definitely use this Hotel again
