Hotels in Birmingham in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... some fresh air. There didn't seem to be any noticeably working air conditioning in the hotel or fans, so at any given time over the weekend it was hotter inside than out. Refreshed I lost my way twice before I found my room again. The hotel, which used to be a Department Store, was like a rabbit warren, but the layout was no more confusing than the roads into Birmingham or the general are a surrounding the hotel. I took a cool shower before getting ready for the evening. I felt hot and sweaty again almost before I’d dried off and had to escape to the... more

I stayed in the hotel Britannia in Birmingham for a weekend last August where I met a large group of Dooyoo and Ciao members. The hottest weekend of the year was certainly very memorable, a fantastic time but what about the hotel? My first impression of the Britannia wasn't very favourable. That could have been because the instructions that the hotel had sent on how to get there from the M6 were not very good and after driving around for ages only the car park which isn't attached to the hotel could be found. We lugged our cases up and down steps through a shopping centre after Mel (cheekychicken) asked for directions and were slightly travel worn by the ... Read the complete review

Birmingham's increasingly impressive city centre is now visited by thousands of people from all over the world - here on business rather then pleasure, mainly. But the good impression left by places like the Mailbox and Brindleyplace is offset by the poor standard of accommodation in the city. Birmingham's hotels and B&Bs are pretty dire, and a night in one of them undoes all the good work. What must people think, etc. I've stayed in the Comfort Inn on Station Street - pretty shabby. I've stayed in the Lyby Guesthouse in Bearwood - and that was pretty awful, too. But the worst was the elegant-looking Astoria Hotel on the Hagley Road, which ... Read the complete review

As my wife Binnie was fastly approaching the BIG 40, I wanted to do something special for her. Normally we don't go to shows or the theatre, but what else can one do when it's a cold day in December. I did a quick search on the internet and found the shows she might like to see. Grease was the only one around her Birthday (Dec 8th) which I thought might be suitable for her tastes. The show was in Birmingham , shame really because I would have liked something in London. I then did another search to find a hotel nearby to the show. The show was held at The Alexander Theatre. I eventually found The Comfort Inn on Station Street right ... Read the complete review

Two years ago my elder daughter went off to Birmingham to university. Several times we have had to go and stay there. There seems to be a lack of motel type accomodation ie Travel Lodge. Although there are some they are not in very obvious locations. I have driven miles round and round Birmingam and surrounding areas trying to spot one! After 2 years I have them all sussed out, but you do need to book in advance as they seem to be mostly full and some don't have many family rooms. Update:29 Aug 01 The two I used were the Ibis at Bordesley and the TravelLodge at Yardley.The Ibis is situated at Bordesley, opposite the Citroen dealer. It has ... Read the complete review

I have been researching in glamorous Birmingham for the last month or so. But as a PhD student my budget for accommodation is limited. I personally have an aversion to B&Bs and prefer 4 star hotels (don’t we all) but sadly the Economic and Social Research Council don’t run to such luxury. Cheap accommodation is hard to come by but I recommend considering the University of Birmingham’s self catering accommodation. It is university accommodation and therefore only available during the summer vacation (June to September). The University of Birmingham rents out 2 of their self-catering blocks of flats during summer. I stayed at the Beeches ... Read the complete review
