Visited Birmingham Hospitality Show and stayed at this hotel for one night.

When I told my friends that I was going to Birmingham, they said there is nothing to see really.
However, I would say, "There is Stay Cool at Rotunda in Birmingham".
I'd never stayed in such a groovy room like this.
Also, this room was the most clean hotel room that I knew in UK.
Since this hotel is a kind of service apartment, there is a kitchen with mini fridge, microwave, espresso machine, toaster, black tea, mint tea, chocolate (drink) etc etc.
Quite convenient.
Everything is well maintained and there was almost nothing broken or not working.
The bed is big double and very cozy.
The bathroom is also very clean and pleasant.
The shower room partition is not long enough that you can wet the bathroom floor with splash, unfortunately.
I stayed on 19th floor and the night view is really something!
Here is no room service or cafeteria but since Rotunda is standing in the middle of Bullring, you can grab anything to eat & drink very easily. If you walk for 2-3min, you'll find Pret A Manger, Starbucks, etc. so soon.
The Rotunda is also located so close to the New Street station.
"Convenient, Clean and Economical" is essential for the hotels and Rotunda has those all.

Hi MinaSHughes

Thank you for your fab review.

We're glad to hear you enjoyed your groovy room, our sixties style certainly stands out from the crowd.

Our location is in short ideal, as you said everything is close by so it's easy to grab a breakfast on the go or enjoy the granola we provide.

We hope we'll see for the show next year.

Best wishes
Simon

Upgraded on arrival to a one bed apartment on the 19th floor! Excellent views, wonderful little touches like excellent coffee from Urban Coffee Co and a bed that I really didn't want to get out of made for a wonderful stay. Thoroughly recommended for anyone who wants to experience Bham or has to stay on business for the night!

Room tip: Ask for a room overlooking the bullring to avoid station noise early in the morning!

Hi Robert B

We're elated that you enjoyed your upgrade to one of our Clubman apartments.

Urban Coffee supply us with our own signature blend, if you've not yet popped into one of their branches nearby, I implore you to do so. Their last guest espresso was to die for.

Our mattresses are indeed so comfortable that it can be a struggle to tear yourself away. If you ever need a new one, you'll know who to come to - our suppliers offer our guests a 10% discount.

Thank you for reviewing your time with us, we hope we will see you again soon.

Best wishes
Simon

we have stayed at the rotunda, 3 years in row whilst attending a trade show at the NEC. The apartments, are clean spacious and have every possible convenience from wifi and flat screen to dishwasher and washing machine with a load of stuff in between.
Great layouts, huge floor to ceiling windows- which you can actually open. So often something you can't do in many hotels.
Location is terrific, being smack in the middle of the city, with most city centre restaurants within walking distance. Of course, this is not a hotel, so if you are looking for an ambience then this may not be the place for you.
One thing not to be overlooked are the very helpful staff who man the desk as you enter the apartment block.
The cost is well worth for privacy, facilities and space

Hi Misskjb

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in one of our Maxi apartments. We hope you had the chance to show your flair for cooking, although with the restaurants and bars close by it's easy to be tempted to dine out.

We'd love to welcome you back soon.

Best wishes

This is the perfect place to stay for a few days in Brum. The location is perfect, and the staff are great!
There are so many shops, bars and restaurants right on your doorstep.
Waking up to watch the city centre come alive is brilliant
