    Excellent position, room with a good standard, if we will go back in Birmingham for sure we will choose this location.

    we had to pay pound 25 during check out as there were some papers on the floor ....just the papers...& no one visited from the staff to clean the room in whole one weeks time.....

    • Average rating
  • Group of friends

    Well presented, clean & modern, lovely friendly staff, who were very helpful. Also very comfy beds! Convenient walk to local amenities but far enough away to be peaceful & quiet. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    We personally had no trouble but did witness a soft top car being broken into by a gang with knives as we were walking past just down the road

    Very large appartment and everything on point

  • Family with children

    It was like a home from home. Very comfortable setting and not at all like an Hotel. Perfect for a young family of 5 who do not operate to hotel like schedules.

    • Average rating
  • Group of friends

    Clean, modern apartment, well kitted out and well located for the ICC.

    Check in rather slow

    • Average rating
  • Older travelers

    Unbeatable location. We had an inward-facing room (faced into an interior courtyard, hence no street exposure) and this made for a very quiet stay.

    Inadequate blinds. The privacy was sufficient but they hardly blocked any light at all.

    • Average rating
  • Single

    Very convenient for the NIC and ICC and also for shopping within the Bullring

    A few minor details in the room where fixtures or fittings were missing

    • Average rating
  • Family with children

    Very difficult to find fault, usually stay in hotels but apartment was smart, very clean, spacious and equipped to a very high standard, Staff extremely helpful, good but quiet position, very close to centre.

    • Average rating
  • Family with children

    Being an apartment, facilities to cook own meals was excellent. The room was clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful.

    Internet was not easy to connect too, had to get help, also had to pay, other places we have stayed in across Europe have been for free. Also no hairdryer.

  • Group of friends

    Upon arrival, the concierge couldn't do enough to help us. The apartment itself was extremely roomy and had everything you could need for your stay. It was a stones throw away from The Mailbox. All in all it was a brilliant stay.

    • Average rating
  • Family with children

    Fantastic accommodation if travelling with a group. We had 2 small children with us and this was far preferrable to booking 2 hotel rooms. Staff were very helpful. Location is good- seems a bit like no-man's land when you get there but is actually very close to everywhere, but very quiet. Rooms were very clean and well presented.

    Room smelt a bit smoky, but we could live with this.

    • Average rating
  • Single

    The location was excellent for nearby restaurants, and the apartment was well fitted out and equiped.

    Great location and friendly staff. Quiet in the rooms which is great considering the location.

    A few black marks on the walls and carpets.
