Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review of the ibis Styles Birmingham Centre. I am pleased to read that you foind the hotel to be in a good location and found the staff to be friendly.

I am sorry that you were disappointed we do not serve a full English Breakfast at the hotel. As part of our All Inclusive offering, we serve a continental breakfast. We are currently trialling a pancake machine which I hope you had chance to try. If you do fancy something warmer we do offer the opportunity to purchase a Bacon Bap for just £2.95. A great start to the day!

We hope that should your travels bring you back to Birmingham, that you will choose to return to the ibis Styles Birmingham Centre.

Kindest Regards

Carla Barratt
General Manager

Stayed here for a birthday/ Mother's day weekend as a base for attending a concert at Symphony hall. We picked it for price, it included breakfast and had parking facilities although it was paid parking. What can I say, rooms were spotless, bed was comfortable, showers were great, breakfast was lovely they had thought of everything. It's not luxury nor does it look basic. Staff were very helfpul always someone there, parking is under cover and eating area lovely. Highly recommend this hotel, very good value and very central.

£48 for a twin room on a Saturday night including (continental) breakfast can't be bad.

Stayed before when it was a Holiday Inn Express, and now the décor is brighter, the staff are friendlier and the beds are comfier.

Rooms are basic but comfortable with a decent enough shower room. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and personable, and reception were welcoming on arrival and found us a room to check into even though it was 1230.

Breakfast was adequate and the late night bar was handy.

The Shakespeare next door is a lovely pub.

Where do I start......this place was second to none!

On checking in, a young, happy, smiling lad called Julian went through the paperwork etc with us and wished us a pleasant stay.

The room was clean, fresh, tidy, adequate for our needs and a nice touch of a curly wurly on the bed which was quickly consumed by the better half!

Continental breakfast was a lovely change from the traditional fry up. Staff were friendly and polite throughout our whole stay.

The hotel is situated in the city centre (about a 10 min walk from Birmingham New Street) but just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the Saturday night atmosphere and party-goers.

We had no problems at all with this hotel and will be recommending this to friends and family.

Just stayed for a week, there are many positives to the hotel. Good, quiet location, lovely reception staff, large clean rooms, good sized bathrooms and comfortable beds. Now this is what a don't get...the Style branding. my room had a large purple mural of diamonds and rather than feeling stylish actually makes the room feel a bit dull, the breakfast wasn't amazing - the 2 mornings I went the food had been properly picked over and not much left. On the whole the hotel does feel a bit sole less. Whilst writing this I now realise what the decor reminds me of. From reception to the rooms it is like a modern hospital with 'touches ' to cheer up the patients...would I stay again ...possibly, would I recommend...i don't know

In all my years travelling, I have never returned to my hotel room after a long day to find the room had not been cleaned nor the beds made up... until now. Housekeeping staff must have also been on holiday. and no, I didn't leave the "do not disturb" sign on the door. The front desk staff were very nice and sent up fresh towels at least. Listen, it is a hotel... we pay, you check us in and clean the rooms. that's it. a simple arrangement. Get your part right. thanx.
