SEVEN STOREYS OF RELAXATION
You may not be aware that Birmingham is home to over six million trees, yet just one pentahotel. We love trees, but we wouldn't dream of sleeping in one, so might we suggest that you hug them by all means, but sleep with us? Apart from the comfort of your pentaroom, everything else on each of our seven floors is wonderfully at ease as well. Our unique pentalounge was designed by star Italian architect Matteo Thun to be a restaurant, bar, meeting point and chill-out area all in one. You've never checked in to a more relaxed hotel reception, we promise.
A Guide to Birmingham
Birmingham was once known only for its heavy industrialism and countless examples of concrete architecture, including the infamous Bullring shopping centre as well as the dilapidated Digbeth coach station, but thankfully not any more. Birmingham has firmly re-established itself as England’s second city, and has flourished to be a modern, buzzing cosmopolitan centre. With vibrant nightlife, fantastic hotels, great shopping and unique tourist attractions, Birmingham is definitely the heart of England.
