Featured Birmingham Hotels


Birmingham Hotels Birmingham’s pubs and clubs are famously lively, the streets buzz with culture and commerce, and the grand old canals are lined with scenic cycle paths.

You can fill up on spicy Balti curry – an Indian dish created right here in the West Midlands – then head out for a night of theatre, comedy or live music. From international festivals to world-class shopping, “Brum” has a lot to shout about.

Birmingham: city layout
Many of Birmingham’s Georgian and Victorian buildings can be taken in while strolling or cycling along the city’s 35 miles of canals. And many of the hotels in Birmingham also date back to centuries past

The striking Bullring shopping centre is a modern landmark on the site of an ancient marketplace. Great Charles Street Queensway is a testament to the fast-moving present, while the baroque St. Phillip’s Cathedral and Victoria Square stand as proud reminders of the city’s history. There are some great Birmingham hotels to be found close by.

Don’t miss
In the centre of Birmingham, you can admire the city’s stateliest buildings in and around Victoria Square. The former post office at Victoria Square House is a French Renaissance-style marvel. Birmingham Town Hall & Symphony Hall is open daily for tours and hosts regular classical concerts. Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery makes for a rewarding wander on a rainy afternoon.

The square is also home to one of the largest fountains in Europe, with water features designed by Dhurva Mistry. Anthony Gormley’s Iron: Man sculpture is a tribute to Birmingham’s industrial legacy. In December, crystal lamps light the plaza and the air fills with the aromas of marzipan and bratwurst during the Frankfurt Christmas Market and Craft Market. This is the time when the hotels Birmingham has to offer fill up quickly with shoppers and those who want to get into the festive spirit.

The Cadbury World experience incorporates 3D video storytelling, interactive theatre, a kids’ play area, and a fun exhibition on the humble cocoa bean.

The concierge recommends…

  • A tour of a local sports stadium. Cricket fans will want to walk the historic ground at Edgbaston. Football fans can visit St. Andrews or Villa Park.
  • Kings Heath, Highbury and Cannon Hill are Brum’s most popular urban parks, and choosing a hotel Birmingham located here can be a great option for those who want to stay in a scenic part of the city.
  • A scenic guided route along the canals, from Sherborne Wharf through the city centre.
  • The galleries, boutiques and vintage-style sweet shops inside the former Bird’s Custard factory.

 

Hotels in Birmingham

Central Birmingham hotels range from basic and business-friendly to boutique options with terrace views. Either way, you’ll have easy access to buzzing bars, pubs and clubs, as well as the city’s main culture hotspots, especially if you choose to stay in one of the hotels in Birmingham city centre.

Near Birmingham New Street Station is The Cube – a multi-story hub of offices, apartments, bars and restaurants with an in-house hotel. Designed by local architect Ken Shuttleworth, its gold and bronze geometric façade really stands out.

There are hotels in Birmingham around the Bullring to suit shoppers on a spending spree and budget-conscious bargain-hunters alike. A room in Snow Hill puts you close to Colmore Business District, with links to New Street for the airport train.



Eating Out in Birmingham

Migrants have come across the world to live in Birmingham, particularly from the Indian subcontinent. And they’ve brought their cultures and cuisines with them. Visitors to Brum can literally taste this diversity whenever they go out to eat.

The basic ingredients of the sizzling balti curry may originate in Pakistan, but the story goes that this popular dish was invented here in Birmingham. In the city’s Balti Triangle, you’ll find curry houses with their own variations on the recipe, and shops where you can buy the spices and balti pots to make your own at home. Choosing a hotel in Birmingham close to one of these curry houses is a great option if you’re a food lover.

The Chinese Quarter on the Southside is equally famous for its Far Eastern markets and menus.
If you’d like to taste the best of British cuisine, Purnell’s in the city centre has earned a Michelin star for its innovative use of local ingredients. Other starred properties include Simpsons, a Georgian dining room in leafy Edgbaston, and adam’s, owned by super-skilled chef Adam Stokes.

The Fine Food Market is well worth checking out in Victoria Square on alternate Wednesdays.

The chef recommends...

  • Balti: A medium-hot curry dish cooked over a high flame with a rich spiced gravy. You can even get balti pie at a football game.
  • Pork scratchings: They may sound unappetising but these crispy, roasted pig skin snacks go down well with a pint of local Two Towers ale.
  • Savoury Ducks: These local delicacies are not ducks at all but offal dumplings made from liver, heart and other underused cuts of meat. They’re great with mashed potato, mushy peas and plenty of gravy.

Shopping in Birmingham

The iconic Selfridges building, Piccadilly Arcade and the elegant Great Western Arcade are all clustered close together for shopping expeditions in the city centre, making them the ideal place to find hotels in Birmingham.

The Bullring forms the main hub of Birmingham retail culture, with more than 150 shops – including the upmarket Harvey Nichols – and plenty of places to eat and drink. Local artists show their work at colourful stalls near the entrance.

The Jewellery Quarter near Hockley is lined with historic buildings, many of which have been home to gem sellers, cutters and polishers for over 200 years.

At Piccadilly Arcade in New Street you’ll find beauty salons, fashion boutiques and gift shops under gorgeous hand-painted ceilings.

Birmingham’s coolest places to shop

  • Custard Factory: You can spend hours browsing for vintage clothes, records and antiques in the shops that now occupy this old manufacturing plant.
  • Brumhaus: Designer Alex Edwards provides a distinctive Midlands take on Bauhaus, with cityscapes printed on bags, cushions, prints and mugs.
  • Cornbill photographs: Tim Cornbill, local photographer and architect, has an eye for the beauty of urban post-industrial Britain.

Culture & Nightlife in Birmingham

By day, Birmingham is one of the UK’s most vibrant cultural centres, with museums in Georgian and Victorian buildings and cutting-edge spaces for modern art, and there are some great Birmingham hotels centrally located to all of these things. By night, the city’s fizzing energy is centred on the pubs, clubs and music venues of Broad Street.

Entry is free to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, where you can see the world’s biggest collection of pre-Raphaelite paintings. Also free is the widely acclaimed Ikon gallery of contemporary art (except for special ticketed exhibitions). Right nearby is Birmingham Repertory Theatre, which hosts Shakespeare classics and fresh new plays.

Barclaycard Arena is a major national concert venue that has hosted top rock, pop and comedy acts from Brian Wilson and One Direction to the popular British funnyman Michael McIntyre.

Movie-lovers flock to Electric Cinema, an Art Deco picture house built in 1909, for regular screenings of classic and indie films. And Birmingham’s legendary Broad Street is a long parade of entertainment options, from long-standing city pubs to the massive Gatecrasher nightclub.

The friendly, lively Birmingham Gay Village is based around Hurst Street and always makes for a fun night out.

The best live shows in Birmingham

  • Hare & Hounds: Combine a few pints at the pub with a night of live music at the Hare & Hounds, where local reggae heroes UB40 played their first gig.
  • Glee Club: Brummies are well-known for their sense of humour and the laughter is infectious at this popular comedy venue. You can also get a good meal here and make a night of it.
  • Birmingham Hippodrome: This impressive performance space sells more tickets per year than any single London West End theatre, hosting ballets, operas and blockbusting musicals.

Visiting Birmingham with family

Besides the big-city treats that Birmingham has to offer, you also have nature trails to wander down and parklands to picnic in. The lush countryside of the West Midlands begins at the edge of town, and there are some great Birmingham hotels in this area if you want to stay close by.

The region gets a lot of rain, but you can always take shelter in the multiplex cinema or bowling alley at Broadway Plaza. And despite being right in the middle of England, more than 100 miles from the nearest coast, Birmingham is also home to the National Sea Life Centre, where kids can meet Gentoo penguins and 60 other species of aquatic creatures.

Children over eight can race go-karts around the tracks at Teamworks Karting or Grand Prix Karting. Littler ones can embark on a thrilling ascent at Creation Indoor Climbing Centre, where fully qualified instructors teach basic skills to kids as young as four.

The whole family can get to know the city at their own pace for free with a choice of self-guided Mystery Treasure Trails. Simply download the route and off you go.

Comfy quiet room - clean and updated look
By Peachied26
The rooms have been updated. The hairdryer actually dries your hair. The internet had a good connection. The room was the right temperature and dark during the night. There was an iron and [More] ironing board which was very clean. [Less]
Stay at the Droitwich Holiday Inn
By Lagib
We only stayed one night as is customary for us to attend the twice yearly Malvern flower show. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming with advice on facilities in and out of the hotel. [More] Rooms were just to our taste, not exotic but adequate. Our needs are not great but a clean comfortable room and bed are essential and this hotel provided it. The free breakfast was adequate but not great with the scrambled eggs tasting as though made with powder. The sausages were a bit hard but as a free breakfast it was all as expected and not bad. The stay was at a bargain price so all in all we enjoyed the experience. [Less]
eager to please
By A Nonny Mouse57
Overall very good. Good clean, tidy Welcoming, helpful. Bedrooms are a bit small and compact. more suited to businessmen than leisurely couples. Could have done with more shelving. The bathroom was [More] excellent in one way but claustrophobic in another. Shower was very easy to use and get the right temperature. Please can cleaning staff remember that some guests are still sleeping when they're making up their trolley at 7.00am. They do a very good job but lots of excitable chatter and clinking mugs can work as well as an alarm. The breakfast area is a bit small and cramped and needs cooperation from all guests at breakfast. Some guests are downright selfish and obstructive. I think you need some extra staff. I person is not enough to keep the food up to scratch and maintain the hot drink machine etc. Small adults can't access the hot food and the sauces because those items are too high. I suggest the evening food ordering is looked at so that orders don't go missing and or are misread. [Less]
Short overnight
By maclaois
Nice hotel, only stayed 1 night. Didn't have breakfast or eat in restaurant. rooms are modern and beds are comfortable. layout of hotel is a bit dated with quite a long walk to some rooms. I [More] thought it was a bit expensive for 1 night with no breakfast. [Less]
A game of two halves...
By MEE100
Average room (even thought it was an 'Executive Room' - 208). The bathroom is tired and old fashioned, the room decor has seen better days, just plain and, well, average! The 'Marco' experience [More] is nothing to write home about either. Usual Italian food. However, the staff at this hotel are brilliant. The best service I have ever received in a mid-range hotel. Truly exceptional. [Less]
