9 reviews of City Inn Birmingham in English
This is a great hotel when it comes to wanting somewhere stylish but affordable to stay after a night out in the city. My friend Nicky and I have often booked a twin room to avoid costly cab fares home.
The rooms are spacious and stylish, and the hotel is really well appointed for the bars and restaurants on BrindleyPlace and the comedy clubs on Broad Street.
This is my favourite hotel to stay in Birmingham mainly because of its location. Plenty to do in the area. Ideal for nightlife and eating out. Also 24H car park right next to it.
The hotel is modern, clean and easy.

I stayed here for one night last weekend, on an overnight getaway to catch up with a friend from my beloved Northern homelands. We managed to bag a twin room for around £55, not too shabby considering that many of the other budget hotel chains that we investigated were around the same price or more.
And compared to some of the budget places I have stayed in on my travels, City Inn was far shinier around the edges. Everywhere was clean, the rooms were comfortable and cosy (even when it was snowing outside), the shower was warm and the room well-stocked with amenities including kettle, wine glasses, fridge, hairdryer and ironing board.
One of the swishest touches was the snazzy and slick-looking iMacs which feature in every room, for films, TV and internet. Although like some of the other Qypers who've stayed there, we had a couple of issues with the wi-fi connection, being able to have a bedroom disco while we got ready for our night out, followed by some bad TV, tea and biscuits and a film when we returned from our adventure really made all the difference.
The location is handy too - easy walking distance from the stations, the Bullring and almost everywhere else, but slightly tucked away off the main road so that there's a quiet courtyard as a buffer of peace and tranquillity between the hotel and the main drag.
Knocked off a star for the noise in the corridors at night - I may be a little old lady and in bed by 1am these days, but on a Friday night it sounded like we were the only ones to be back before 4am, and the dirty stop-outs weren't much cop at keeping quiet, so we did get woken up a couple of times. That said, it seems like this place is mainly used mid-week for business stopovers, so I'm sure it's much more peaceful then!
City Inn, king of the chic and affordable business hotel is situated in the modern development of Brindleyplace and completed a refurbishment of all bedrooms in August 2007. All 238 large bedrooms are decorated in neutral tones and feature DVD players, stereos and complimentary Wi-Fi. Imac computers have been installed to continue to offer the latest cutting-edge technology. Five small meeting rooms all have natural daylight and the capacity for up to 100 people in theatre style. Really easy to get around and is part of the growing cafe-culture of Birmingham.
I saw this hotel being advertised for a New Year break in Birmingham. It looked a very good deal, and the hotel is pretty central for Symphony Hall, The Rep. NIA and Sea world. We had a beautifully clean room, not spacious but we managed very well, a superb 4/5 course meal, and a brunch which was more than adequate. For what we wanted (a short break before a fairly major operation later this week) it was super The receptionists put themselves out to be helpful in any way possible, even finding extra duvets to put on my mattress to make it softer. The only thing that we had cause to complain about was that the room wasn't warm enough - obviously there was a fault somewhere. They even sent up a heater from the back office. I would certainly go again for something similar.
Fairly decent business hotel in a quiet location not far from the centre of Birmingham. The rooms lack character, what with being the standard business box, but they're clean and the beds are big. Decent in-room entertainment is provided by an iMac which you can use as a TV or in normal Mac mode. I'd be very happy to stay here on business again.
- dodgy wifi, which was up and down like the proverbial whore's drawers.
- service to the meeting rooms during the day is really slow. We waited 30 mins for a standard coffee and a pot of tea to be delivered to the room we were in, and even then there was no milk for the tea.
- it's nice and quiet - even though the hotel was full, I didn't get a sense of it being heaving, and it's just far enough off the main street not to have through traffic.
- the restaurant's reasonably priced (I had a set three course meal for a £18.95) and the food's quite nice, albeit under-seasoned.
- the staff are very friendly.
- it's in a great location - just 10-15 minutes walk from New Street station/the Bullring.
Everything you could want from a hotel is provided.
Friendly staff, superbly appointed room, city centre location, free WiFi, iMac tv’s (everywhere) and absolutely superb catering for reasonable prices -make sure to ask for a 10% discount card and prices are even better!
Well done City Inn, again!

Ideal location for a hotel, close enough to the centre and Broad Street and Brindley Place, but far enough away to not get any of the noise.
The hotel is very modern and swish, very simple inoffensive decor and an overall lovely experience.
There is free high-speed internet in all of the rooms which is very handy for checking email first thing in the morning/last thing at night.
The hotel is easy walking distance from the ICC and the NIA making it a very nice hotel for a short stay in Birmingham.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and seem happy in their work which is a nice change from other hotels.
Good hotel in an excellent location. This is one of the City Inn chain, and as such is a modern hotel with clean, simple, fresh decor, free high-speed internet access in all the rooms via an iMac. The service is helpful and efficient. The hotel is at one end of Brindleyplace, just far enough off Broad Street to avoid the noise and bustle, but close enough to be a minute or so away from the bars and restaurants. Ideal location for the ICC and NIA, as well as for shopping and city centre events.
Good value for a high-quality hotel.
