Really nice, modern hotel, with a good location. It was very clean, the beds were comfy, and the bathroom was wet room style. Its only a seven minute walk from the Bullring, so is a great location for most things in Birmingham. The staff were very accommodating with early check in. Hotel parking is quite expensive - cost us £20...

My daughter & I had a twin room booked for after a gig at O2 Academy which is literally a five minute walk away. Also less than ten minute walk to New St station & the Bullring. Friendly staff upon arrival. Cool bar space with pool table. Simple yet funky decorated room with twin beds with lovely fresh clean bedding....

The bedrooms and decor of this hotel are really lovely and it met all of our standards for our one night stay. The bar downstairs has a nice friendly atmosphere and a vast selection of drinks. Very close to the O2 academy which is great for gigs! (we went to see Kasabian and it is a very short walk away)...

Gorgeous bedrooms, bar and restaurant area. We've stayed at the Penta before but not had the breakfast and we were not disappointed! There was a fantastic variety of food and drinks. The only slight complaint I'd have is that the pillows which were too squidgy! I should point out that I'm used to a memory foam one so a bit...
