Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phil The Gap Up to the usual high standard for a H I Express
I always stay here when attending the NEC. Whilst the location is not great for something to do in the evening (eat and drink) it's a good balance of value for money, parking charge and ease to get to and from the NEC. A taxi ride into the City centre provides lots of choice for eating out. The staff are always friendly and the rooms clean and well maintained. Just book well in advance of any shows or exhibitions to get the best value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LWSS1 An alternative if you want to stay close to BHX
I was working in the airport cargo area for a few days but there was a big event in NEC so I decided to stay a bit further away from the airport this time to avoid the crowded hotels. The hotel is modern and comfortable. The only issue I had was a bit of a blocked shower drain but I think it has been looked into once I check out from the room. I paid £3 for parking per night as I am an IHG platinum member which I think is quite reasonable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joanne 67 Good quality hotel
Great hotel .... Only thing that let it down for me, was breakfast .. Could not find a tray ... Coffee machine very poor ... Ended up making myself a Nescafé decaf from a sachet!! Pot of coffee beside me at the table would have made it for me!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TOYOTA99 Good Service from Staff
The time before that I stayed here, the dinner service was very long (for no apparent, nor any offered reason?) and when the food came, it wasn't that brilliant.
This visit was very different. When I ordered the meal, it arrived within a few minutes (but had been individually prepared, not sat festering!) and it was very good. A massive improvement from my previous visit.
The rest of the hotel is first class, quiet comfortable rooms, very clean & tidy and the staff are excellent, very pleasant and helpful as well as being efficient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve M Magnificent Hotel
Stayed here with my adult son for just one night on a visit to the Autosport International Exhibition at NEC
This is truly a gem of an hotel...Very friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to be helpful and seem genuinely proud of the hotel...High quality, spotlessly clean well decorated room with a huge shower in the good sized bathroom.
Excellent nights sleep in a very comfortable bed and a good Express Breakfast with plenty of choice on the menu
Car parking in the secure camera monitored car park is a modest but well worth extra cost
This is certainly a gem amongst Holiday Inn Express hotels and one to which I hope to return on my next visit to Birmingham

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick L 2 day stay at the Holiday Inn Express A45
The staff were very friendly and helpful - brought an iron + board up to the room quickly, printed me out a new room key with no fuss etc. Room was large, clean and generally good, though the AC seemed to be a bit hit and miss.... Breakfast was slightly disappointing but can't complain really. There were 3 types of hot food and then your standard, cereals, croissants, juice and so fourth. I would recommend staying here because it is good value for money.
