What an amazing place to stay so close to the train station, right next to the Bullring and all the shops. The views were amazing very comfortable rooms only one issue was a problem with the 'eco boiler' whilst washing my hair ran out of hot water but I didn't let that spoil my stay 😁

I've stayed here a few times now when in Brum for business, and it's been a lovely experience every time. The Rooms (apartments really) are spacious and comfortable, and the staff are welcoming and truly friendly. I was even upgraded to the Penthouse on one occasion, which was truly something. The only trepidation I have in giving Staying Cool such...

I stayed at the Rotunda for three nights. I just loved the studio apartment, the ability to keep my own breakfast in the fridge and making coffee in the morning while enjoying a nice shower. I was attending Crufts as a visitor and the locations is superb for the train but still central enough to enjoy dining out in downtown...

The reception was efficient and very friendly. We arrived early and were offered to hold our luggage behind the reception desk. Most appreciated. Check-in was swift and pleasant. Four couples checked in in a matter of minutes. The suite was large and airy with enough accommodation for four people. Two bathrooms, one with a shower, the other with a bath....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay at the top of the city's iconic Rotunda and enjoy amazing views of the city from your very own beautifully designed apartment right in the heart of the city centre (Selfridges will be your corner shop). Each apartment has floor-to-ceiling glass windows that open fully and the Penthouses have their own outdoor balconies. These stylish apartments have been designed with your maximum comfort in mind. Each comes with bespoke designer furniture, a very well-equipped Poggenpohl kitchen, espresso maker with complimentary locally sourced milk and Illy or Fairtrade coffee, oranges for the juicer, iPod dock, plus a king size bed with pocket sprung/memory foam mattress for the very best night's sleep. There's a 24 hour reception plus daytime/evening concierge offering Staying Cool's renowned service. Choose from Minis (studios), Clubmans (one beds), Maxis (two beds) and Roadsters (two bed Penthouses). And if you don't like heights, we have two apartments on level two (the Olympian and Cabriolet). In short, stay in the best location, in an award winning Grade II listed building and experience life like a local. If you book via Staying Cool's website then you will get a complimentary bottle of wine or free parking and the guaranteed cheapest rate. ... more   less
