Reviews - Comfort Inn City Centre Birmingham

2Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
Station Street , Birmingham, B5 4DY
Conveniently located in the heart of the cosmopolitan city of Birmingham, this charming hotel is housed in a beautiful, red-bricked Victorian building just a stone’s throw from New Street Station and the famous Bullring shopping centre. With a wealth of restaurants, bars, theatres and attractions just waiting outside its front door, it is the perfect place for both leisure and business customers alike.

A historical landmark in its own right, the original building dates back to 1883 and great deal of care has been taken to ensure it still retains many of its original period features, including a marvellous pull-cage lift. However, guests can still look forward to experiencing all the contemporary amenities that one would expect from a hotel of this calibre. The Comfort Inn Birmingham prides itself on its uncompromising commitment to customer service, combining resolute efficiency with a unique personal touch.

When it comes to accommodation, the comfort and convenience of guests are the cornerstones upon which all of the rooms are composed. Each of the 40 tastefully decorated, en-suite bedrooms are well-appointed with all the amenities needed to guarantee a relaxing and stress-free stay. This includes Wi-Fi access at a fee, television, telephone, tea & coffee making facilities. Whether business or leisure, a family or a solo traveller, there are a range of room types to choose from, including Single, Double, Twin, and Triple options.

Business travellers in particular will appreciate additional conveniences like copy and fax services, as well as two on-site meeting rooms. With capacity for up to 50 delegates, these are perfect for hosting a multitude of corporate events including seminars, training sessions and conferences. What’s more the ICC is only a 15 minute walk from the hotel.

Each morning guests can look forward to starting the day with a traditional English breakfast, or if they prefer, lighter options are also available (please note no restaurant is available in the evenings). The Station Bar, located on the premises, is a great place to unwind after a long journey or a frantic day’s high-street shopping. Offering a fine selection of beers, wines, ales and light snacks, guests are free to relax and enjoy the friendly ambiance or perhaps watch a game on the large screen TV.

The city of Birmingham is renowned for its abundance of exciting attractions, whether it’s an action packed weekend, a romantic getaway or a business trip there is truly something for everyone. No account of this vibrant city would be complete without first mentioning the fantastic shopping. The Mailbox offers big brand indulgence from the likes of Harvey Nichols, Hugo Boss and Emporio Armani, whilst the Bullring, one of the UK’s largest shopping centres is perfect for favourite high-street stores such as Topshop, Apple, DKNY and of course the iconic Selfridges. And what with the colourful markets and the world-famous Jewellery Quarter, it’s a virtual shopper’s paradise. The cosmopolitan nature of Birmingham is reflected in the sheer quality and choice of its many restaurants and eateries. From Michelin Stars and stylish dishes to traditional pub lunches and tasty snacks there is something for all budgets and culinary palettes to enjoy. It’s no surprise that the nightlife in Birmingham is as thriving and energetic as the city itself. With an endless selection of exciting bars and night-clubs as well as comedy clubs, theatres and gigs, there is always something happening. Just a 15 minute walk from the hotel is the National Indoor Arena, one of the busiest large scale indoor sporting and entertainment venues in Europe. Those seeking more cultural pursuits are just as spoilt for choice. The Hippodrome, Birmingham’s flagship theatre and home to the Birmingham Royal Ballet, has everything from Opera to musicals. There’s also the Alexandria, an exquisite Edwardian auditorium offering a rich mix of drama, comedy and concerts, and the Repertory Theatre renowned for its original plays and family friendly entertainment. For art lovers, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery has the largest collection of Pre-Raphaelites in the world. The Ikon is one of Europe's leading contemporary art galleries. And the Barber Institute of Fine Arts has a balance between old and new.

Further afield, the NEC, the UK’s largest exhibition centre is only a 20 minute drive from the hotel. This venue is host to over 160 exhibitions and 2.5 million visitors each year. Birmingham Botanical Gardens, less than a 10 minute drive away, offer 15 acres of beautiful gardens and glasshouses where visitors are free to enjoy the serene tranquillity of nature. Why not treat the whole family with a visit to Cadbury World chocolate factory, Drayton Manor Theme Park or perhaps the educational fun of Thinktank, an interactive science museum.

Please note, Breakfast price shown at time of booking is special non-refundable rate and cannot be cancelled.

Please note, if you intend to pay for your reservation by cash a £50 deposit will be taken at the time of arrival. The hotel reserves the right to bill guests for any refurbishment work necessary should damage be caused during your stay."

Not too bad
My partner and I booked this stay because everywhere else was booked. I couldn't fault the room for the price, however the bed was a little uncomfortable. When we arrived we went to the reception desk to pay by cash. I had exactly £40 on me which was the cost of the room. I was then told if I pay by cash I need to put a £50 cash safety deposit down which I did not have. Luckily the man was quite nice and after a while said that he trusted us. The hotel is pretty much in the centre of Birmingham which I loved. I would stay again, but it's not the best hotel in Birmingham for the same price.

Surprisingly good.
I wasn't expecting much after seeing the outside of the building as it looked grubby and uncared for but upon entry into the lobby I was rather surprised to see a clean and professional looking hotel.
4 floors of rooms with lift access although the lift is tiny and can barely fit 3 people. The room was spacious and clean with a rather large bathroom.
The only downside was a rather loud TV from one of the rooms close to ours but that was only during early evening before we went out for the night, it was very quite upon our return in the early hours.

Not what I expected
Previously stayed in a few of these chains so thought price was reasonable for this chain until I got there bathroom cleanliness was not so good the cup to have a tea in were dirty....I understand it's hard to block noise out but all through the night you could here noise from all rooms then to be woken very early in morning from the construction work for the new station across the road. I don't feel value was great when they have construction right on your doorstep

Hotel was ok for the money but had I have been informed there was a building site right outside I probably would not have booked this hotel as 7.30 am Monday morning all the builders turned up for work and as you could imagine made alot of noise.

Comfort Inn Birmingham
The staff were friendly and pleasant. I asked for a quiet room, so was given a room at the back - with a view of a wall! It was very hot and stuffy and there was very little air, but at least the windows could be opened. The bed was comfortable. I approved of the fact that you used refills for shampoo and soap rather than eco-unfriendly packets.
The breakfast was all right but the coffee was cheap instant, which I really don't think is acceptable, hence the poor rating for the food.
