Nice suites in central part of town. They are suites but quite big and well priced. Only downfall is you have to go to check in office in different building if any questions or issues. We had a few but fixed rather quickly

We went to see 30 Seconds To Mars in concert at the Arena Birmingham. My Wife thought it would be nice for a change, to get an overnight Hotel or Apartment. She found City Nites in Birmingham, very reasonably priced for 3 of us. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable. The arena was a 2 minute walk, literally as you exit the building, you can see the steps up to the Arena. It made a nice change to have a drink at the concert, as I usually drive there and back so don't drink. After the Concert, it was so nice to walk back to the apartment without the hassle of waiting in hour long queues to get home. When we arrived at the apartment, we were not sure where to park. I went to reception and they had on site, secured parking for £10 which was not mentioned beforehand. We were not sure where else to park so we took the offer. They also hold £250 from your credit or debit card, as security against damage. If there are no issues, then they 'unhold' the fee in a couple of days. They do offer a Continental breakfast for a reasonable price, but we declined the offer. You check out between 09:00 and 11:00 the next morning which is a nice lie in. You don't need to go to Reception to check out, you leave your room key in a Dropbox at every exit, including the car park. All in all, a hassle free, comfortable way to stay overnight in the Great City of Birmingham.

I have stayed in this place a few times and mainly chose it for its location near to the arena as i come often to see shows down there . I cannot express how amateur this hotel is, Both times i stayed, i was shocked to see how this place is literally falling apart. It looks so old and not maintained at all. Furniture is rubbish, everything got scratches on it even kitchenware, It looks like some cheap hostel and should not be even referred as an aparthotel that charges the money it does. They ask for 250 pounds deposit in case of any damages which is ridiculous as the place is trashed enough already !! Also, the regular clientele of the place seems very suspicious and dodgy! Is not a place where you will feel safe and comfortable unless all you want to do is pass out after a drinking all night which is what I believe people use this place for. Not recommend it at all!

Booked via last minute thing for two nights. Pre paid £159. Turned up to find out needed £250 security deposit. Thankfully my card eclipsed as would never have realised. This was not made clear on. Check in. Staff could not have been more unhelpful. Effectively stranded. Area and building itself does not feel very safe and judging by reception not very well maintained. Seems to be a lot of people staying there you wouldn't normally think on a business trip so not sure what the main market is. Certainly would be less comfortable if a women on my own or with a young family.

Location was great carpark was a bit tricky to navigate but apartments are big and spacious, heating was fabulous, the shower - powerful, only downfall is that the facilities are dated. The dishwasher was peeling on the outside, the mugs had scratches on them, the sofas were worn and ripped in some places, there was a random hole at the bottom of the fridge freezer and the windows were drafty and could have done with sound proofing- hearing security chatting away on the phone at 01:50 am outside the room and then the sounds of the bin men was off putting. The bed was hard and there were hairs all over the duvet and pillows (put me in mind of dog hairs) it could have been from the throw and cushions, but still. The ring of spilt tea on the side table was a lovely touch too. All in all would I go back?Yes as it served its purpose but only if the rooms are updated.

Stayed here with friends whilst seeing Lady Gaga perform at Barclays Area. Great location with the area being just across the road. Traffic looked mahem when we were coming out of the area when the concert had finished. Apartment was a lot bigger than expected, great for the 4 of us all trying to get ready. Apartment had everything we needed. Apartment was clean but could do with an update as beginning to look a bit tired. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Checkout was quick and easy. Apartment was short taxi drive to New street train station costing about £8 Would definitely be back if seeing another concert here.

This is about the 4th time I've stayed here and cannot recommend the place enough - this time it was for a couple of nights on the 25/26th. The Penthouse was very spacious, fully kitted out and spotless when I arrived - I'll definitely be staying here again !

My mum and me stayed here to see a show which was taking place in the arena.Such a good location and we just walked across the road. Also by restaurants and a great set of bars on the canal. We arrived too early and too early to check in so the receptionists where very helpful and asked housekeeping to get our apartment ready ASAP. They took our suitcases and text us a half hour later that it was ready. An hour and half earlier than we were supposed to check in, couldn’t do enough for us! So helpful. Apartment was clean, clean towels and clean bedding. Apartment warmed up very quickly when we turned on the radiators, had an iron and an ironing board. Hairdryer. Lovely balcony also. Comfy bed. Tea and coffee. Reasonable price. We will definitely be going back. Thanks City Nites!

stayed here for 5 days last week. The apartment we stayed in was very spacious but the decor was tired looking needs updating. kitchen was very well equipped as me and my friend cooked a lot. The apartment was always boiling even when we opened the windows. very noisy can hear everything outside. The floor was dirty as my feet were always black. For location though was very good only a 10 minute walk into the centre.

We were upgraded to a "penthouse" but all I could see as different was it was as slightly bigger apartment the sofas were not worn down and it was top floor. The floor itself was dirty in all rooms even our socks picked up dust. The location is excellent for the arena however other than good price and location it could be much more improved. Little things like having 6 wine glasses but all from different sets felt a bit student accommodation. The check in is very slow and you do have to pay a £250 deposit for breakages which seems excessive which is increased to £300 if you stay in a pent house. parking is expensive at £10 per night and I called In advance to find out which carpark I could leave the car in and I was told they wouldn't tell me until I paid , this seemed a little odd as the room had been paid upfront and you have to display a permit so I wouldn't be able to get away with not paying (not that I would), they said they would put cones out for me however this didn't happen so I had to stay on double yellow lines while I went through the painfully slow check in. I was also told we could only have one key to the room as they couldn't find the other one , yet it was a 2 bedroomed apartment. Bedroom one very spacious lovely shower and ensuite, however bedroom 2 was very tiny , neither of the beds were particularly comfortable. All in all was ok for the price we paid but if they concentrated on cleanliness and customer service I would think it would make a difference.
