          Our room was on the 9th floor - it was quiet and the views were fantastic - will stay there again.

          Reception on check out was a little manic as only one member of staff helping customers.

          Checking out could not wait to get out didnt even stop for breakfast what was advertised the pictures etc and price never will I stop here again I would pay the little extra and stay at the burlington even the ibis

        • Older travelers

          City centre location ideal for all attractions.

          Breakfast area on the small side seeing that one half of the restaurant was closed off and only opened for evening meal.

          Location and an ensuit bath+shower

          The lifts were a bit slow...that's all.

        • Older travelers
          3.2

          Breakfast was reasonable

          Wash Hand Basin was cracked and leaking on the floor. Black hair was on the bathroom wall from a previous guest. Room was noisy and windows draghty. No barman on duty on one night and a receptionist manning the bar could not pull a John Smiths, with no oother beer available I went elsewhere. All you can eat buffet was a joke, on the night I tried it there was Pork and the trimmings or Scampi, but only boiled potatoes and mixed veg, where would you find this concoction on any menu? Quilt on the bed was the same size as the matress, no overhang, so therefore draghty. Have not complained but it might be a while before I consider another Britannia Hotel.

          convinent transportation.

          i dont like the lift, which like a snail

          it's in the centre of the city. I liked the housekeepers who were the most welcome and helpful employees at the hotel.

          the room service, they never answered the phone and didn't want to help when we asked at the restaurant and at the reception. We stayed there for 8 days and we had only one lift available, the other one was out of order, it was not convenient at all, we had to wait usually for 10 mins to use the lift, we were at the 8th floor and we had a pushchair therefore was impossible sometimes to use the stairs. Also one of the receptionist was too rude, not a good impression when you enter the hotel and find the receptionist in a bad mood.

          Location

          It needs a coat of paint to freshen it ip and there was a bad smell of drains by and in the lifts

          The lovely evening Dinner: surprised that I could eat as much as I wanted. Staff very friendly and co-operative. Looking forward to next visit. breakfast good value for money and a good choice.

          Room was drafty- does not loook as if the windows are double glazed.I Am sensitive to drafts. Room was number 603.

        • Couple
          7.4

          The location is perfect for those who want to stay at the centere of Birmingham.

          Poor lighting in the room ( not sufficient). Only one or two sockets for electricity use.

          Excellent location

          I was not used to size of twn bed

        • Single
          4.6

          The hotel was convenient for public transport and shopping. Close to the bus station.

          I found the hotel was in a very central location but it definitely needs an upgrade. The lighting in the room was poor and the cleanliness of the rooms was below standard. Also the kettle and TV remote were not working on arrival. The breakfast was very poor, not to be recommended.

        • Single
          8.2

          Very convenient location close to new street station. Good comfortable clean room and very good value for money.

          small surcharge for paying by debit or credit card

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Close to main railway station ans shopping centre.

          I have no complaint at all.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Perfect position to visit Birmingham. Few minutes from New Street Station. Perfect for Town Hall concerts (few minutes by walk).
