At £27 for last minute booking it was very cheap. The hotel is clean, the staff are friendly and location very central. But IBIS have made the format far too budget styled and uncomfortable. For example you get a tiny desk and double bed when the room is big enough that you have easily supplied bigger and better at no extra cost. The quality of the fittings were just too cheap and shoddy when with careful specification they could have been so much better. With a but more thought it could easily have been nice and cheap, rather than cheap and nasty.

Central, Clean, Basic and Cheap.

The perfect base for gigs at the o2 academy or HMV institute, both within easy walking distance. Taxis are easy to find, as are the pubs and bars. Stayed twice, and on both times it has been very good. Not expecting a 5 star palce just somewhere to crash,

Cant complain for £18 a night

The hotel is no more than 15 minutes on foot from New Street station and the city centre. The rooms are clean and spacious, with comfortable beds and all the usual amenities. Rooms can be accessed by lift or stairs, with swipe card key entry to all residential areas. Tea and coffee are not available in the room but can be purchased in the cafe area downstairs. Continental breakfast can be bought on site for a very reasonable price (currently £4.25). Staff on the reception desk are polite and efficient. The cafe area also has a small shop, where 'meal deals' (sandwich, crips, fruit, drink etc), wine and microwave snacks can be purchased (the costs for these snacks were not high, appearing comparable with what would be paid in a typical supermarket). At £27 per night for a clean and convenient double room this hotel provides great value for money.

If you want a weekend break which is cheap, clean and central, then look no further. I can't praise it enough, everything you need is right there at an amazing price. I loved the breakfast too. Book it now
