4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

Stayed here last weekend for my friend's birthday, there was a party of 12 altogether and we booked several triples and several doubles. Brilliant location, within walking distance to the o2 academy which was where we ended up. The triple room has a double bed with a single bunk bed above it. As is the norm for all Etaps/Ibis Budget hotels, no it is not comfortable. The window doesn't open so you can't treat yourself to fresh air and the air con is non existent. Shower is in the actual bedroom with a translucent window, sink is also in the bedroom. Toilet is seperate. Luckily we were hammered otherwise we would have been bothered but at the end of the day, we paid something silly like 25quid per room and taking into consideration how near it was to the o2 and parking was 4quid for 24 hours we couldn't have been happier. That is, until you wake up the next morning with the hangover from hell in a stuffy tiny room and risk your life to get down the bunkbed ladder LOL but oh well gives you an excuse to get out ASAP (check out is 12pm!) I wouldn't recommend staying here for any other reason than to get p**sed up before you hit Birmingham because you will not sleep (we had our music on full whack without any complaints - thanks Ibis) Didn't try brekkie, there are walking distance eateries nearby such as The Victoria and some Indian restaurants/pizza joints (handy at 3am)

I stayed at Ibis budget only for 1 night as it was night out with my boyfriend so didnt stay much in the bedroom. I already stayed previously in etap i was happy with room. It was the same in this case, room was nice and clean and fairly spacious. For price i paid (£30) i did not expect large room. It was suitable for what i needed, showr is great and powerful however if im visiting with my friends i would feel uncomfortable to get out of shower directly to the room. As there is no hanger for towel in the shower and shower leads directly to the bedroom. Other than that ibis budget is really money friendly hotel with clean rooms

Came here after a bad hotel and it was like heaven. The room is compact but cosy and there was enough room for me. The rooms were modern and well kept. The shower worked very well although it was very small and not the most private but thats easy to work around. The doors closed quietly and were very soundproof. Breakfast was luxurious. Only downside is I would not dare to venture out at night, but it is very cosy and safe in the hotel with plenty to do. Overall I can't really pick out massive negatives about here! Would come again.
