We stayed here for the weekend for Christmas shopping. Great location as only 10 minutes walk to the Bullring Shopping Centre. Secure parking was great too, so did not mind paying £16 per day as felt car was nice and secure. Car park situated under hotel. However, has very limited spaces but we managed to find one and we did...

I enjoyed very much my short vacation to Birmingham and I was impressed by the staff here, especially by Marina (can't remember if that's her name). She took care of everything I needed and answered all my questions (lots of them) about the city and nice places to visit in Birmingham.

Another business trip with a single overnight stay. Very well sited location for transport links (Train Station) and only a short walk to the city centre. The staff were very pleasant enhancing a friendly atmosphere throughout.

The hotel was pretty expensive but quite centrally located. The lobby was a strange combination of a reception desk and bar with a pool table in the middle of everything and loud music even at daytime. Not a very well functioning idea at all. The clerk at the reception forgot to tell us what time breakfast would be served, and...

We stayed at the Pentahotel during our recent trip to Birmingham to visit the Christmas Market. The hotel was well located and close enough to the market for us to walk. The hotel is a bit different with the reception being located at the bar on the ground floor. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We ate in the...

Short weekend trip with my boyfriend. Lots to do in the location we were in(perfect walking distance) As for the hotel, very welcoming and great hospitality. Decor was lovely especially the rooms very modern. Only thing is we booked a double room. The space was ok but could have been a little bigger including the bed. Bathroom was gorgeous and...

Visited Birmingham for Christmas market and other shopping with my partner so wanted a hotel close to New Street railway station & the Bullring Centre. Pentahotel fitted the bill, ten minutes stroll away, and is also close to theatres (Hippodrome, New Alexandria & O2Academy) as well as the Mailbox shopping centre. Admittedly you have to use some rather run down...

Only stayed for 1 night. Not far from Birmingham new Street station. Underground parking available but is limited. A very relaxed feeling to the design of the bar/ check in area. Staff are really helpfully and polite. Loved the complimentary toiletries and the wet room. We had a huge tv and tea and coffee...the only downside was the colour of...
