The location to the New Street train station is excellent. Rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. Only downside is the WI-FI is down a lot, mostly mornings and evenings (when you need it most)

Great Location, but.....

This is a decent hotel. The heating needs work. The Shower curtain smelled of mold and mildew. The staff was terrible when it came to messages. All messages was suppose to be sent to your room and displayed on the T.V. That never worked. My family complained that I was hard to reach. Which was because I never got messages. Outside of those problems the location is great. It's a about two blocks from the rail station and one block from the Bullring. Your right in the heart of a small asian community so plenty of restaurants.

Birmingham Holiday Inn City Centre

Nice hotel, good size room with great temperature control (not so common in Europe). Very efficient check in. Good breakfast. My room was facing the main road so got noisy early in the morning. Nice firm bed (again hit or miss in many European hotels). Great location - very near the New Market St Train Stn near main shopping area. Try to get a room away from the main street and on a higher floor. Reasonable rates.

Nice and clean!

We stayed at this hotel one night on our route from Wales to London. It was a great location for us since we took the train and it's only a short walk from the train station to the hotel. It's also right near a shopping mall and a movie theatre. We didn't have any plans for sightseeing in Birmingham, but it was great for doing a little shopping. The room was medium sized, but very clean. I was very satisified with the price that we paid for this hotel. We paid much more for hotels in Dublin and London (and upgraded) that were not nearly as nice as the basic room at this Holiday Inn.

We had dinner at a great restaurant in the mall called Nandos. This restaurant chain is all over the UK and its a must if you like spicy chicken!
