~*~ Nite Nite Hotel, Birmingham ~*~
My boyfriend and I are always going away for weekends to visit friends who are spread out across the whole of the UK. I love visiting different places, however, as you can imagine, it ends up being quite expensive in petrol and leisure costs alone without adding hotels to that! Therefore, we are always on the lookout for nice hotels at a bargain price, and Nite Nite in Birmingham was one of the latest of these trials.
~*~ The location ~*~
The hotel is located at 18 Holliday Street in Birmingham. The location of the hotel is very good - 5 minutes away from Birmingham New Street station, 10 minutes from the NEC Arena and just a few minutes walk from Broad Street with its rows of bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants. So ideal for somewhere to stay for a night out.
~*~ The hotel ~*~
Nite Nite describes itself as 'chic but comfort-concious'. The hotel rooms are basically designed to feel like ship cabin rooms - there are no windows which could get a little claustrophobic if you were in there for a long period of time. The hotel consists of 104 compact en-suite rooms, all of which are priced the same.
~*~ The rooms ~*~
Inside each room you will find a large comfy double bed, 42" plasma screen TV located opposite the bed, a small bathroom with a toilet and power shower and tea and coffee making facilities. The rooms are very small and there isn't much space for luggage, so the rooms are only really suitable for a night or two at most - definitely not somewhere to come if you are planning on staying for longer periods of time.
Other extras are available free of charge from reception including hairdryers and ironing facilities.
~*~ The extras ~*~
One of the nicest things about this hotel is the little extras that you are provided with free of charge. This includes a bottle of water per guest on arrival, tea and coffee and complimentary Wi-Fi and blockbuster movies throughout your stay. The blockbuster movies are available on demand through the television and are new releases. That's something you don't get very often in a hotel!
~*~ The price ~*~
Sunday's at this hotel cost just £29.95 per room, which is an absolute bargain! When not on promotion, rooms are generally £54.95 - £59.95 depending on how flexible you are on dates. A good price, really, considering. Definitely worth hunting around first to see if you can get a good deal with different dates before you purchase a room.
~*~ The facilities ~*~
The hotel has its own licensed bar open 7 days a week - until 11pm (Midnight on Saturday's). The bar is pretty much a section of the restaurant, but is OK if you just want a couple before you go out (don't expect bargain drinks, but not too much of a rip off).
There is also a restaurant on site which services hot meals as well as breakfasts and snacks. All reasonably price and quality food, but to be honest there is so much choice in Birmingham just a couple of minutes walk away that it's worth just walking into the town and choosing from the wide selection there.
~*~ The verdict ~*~
I was quite impressed with the quality of this hotel considering the price. I got a special offer room and paid just under £100 for 2 nights quite a while ago now. I found the location to be very good, the staff members were all very professional and helpful and the hotel in itself was very clean and tidy, and peaceful considering we stayed there Friday and Saturday night.
The rooms are very small, probably the smallest room I've stayed in to be honest, but are laid out very well so they are bearable. Probably not a good idea if you do get claustrophobic though, honestly.
~*~ Choose this if... ~*~
-You are staying in Birmingham for a night or two
-Aren't planning on spending much time in the hotel
-Are coming for a night out
-Are happy on using a hotel just as somewhere to sleep
~*~ Don't choose it if... ~*~
-You are planning a romantic weekend away and plan to spend a lot of time in the hotel
-You are looking for luxury
-You like on-site entertainment
-You are hoping to meet other guests in the hotel bar
Hope this helps!
Summary: A good hotel perfect for a one or two night stay in the city
