Waste of Money

On arrival we were greeted fine not usual welcoming expected from a hotel. I had a surprise as I was told I had to give my bank card over for €75 to be pre-authorised for the stay as I had paid upfront for the room to alpharooms. I was not aware of this and first time I have ever heard of this, money coming out of your account twice. I had requested a twin room but received a double so had to go back down to change. Swapped to smallest twin room ever and that is coming from 2 people under 5ft! . Rooms very dated. The whole hotel needs updating, comes across as being grotty and seedy. Okay if you are paying nothing but I have stayed in nicer hostels. The room was very cold and the balcony doors were not locked. Windows on balcony door very thin and anyone could have stepped over balcony into your room. Bed right up against doors so you could feel the cold. We were room only so glad I didn't have breakfast. Would never stay again. Only plus is location if you are going for Shopping - if not stay in Jurys on Broad Street or the IBIS.

Good location

Clean room. Good breakfast. On arrival we were greated ok. I had a surprise as I was told I had to give my bank card over for £50 to be pre authorised for the stay as I had paid upfront for the room. I was not aware of this and therefore short of what invaded budgeted for, for my weekend. I had requested a twin room but received a double. There was a strange smell in the long twisty corridors, but found our room ok. The room was nice and comfy. It was quiet considering the central location. The room was very cold and the balcony doors were very thin and not secure in closing. They didn't close together with a good gap between which made the room very cold. I was unable to find a thermostat so we had an extra blanket over the 2 nights. Breakfast was buffet style and good choice, and cooked well.

Perfect location for a City break

Whilst we felt that the hotel was in need of some tender loving care, we had a good stay and would return. Room & Beds were clean, but decor needed some attention. If there was a downside, it was that the front bedrooms (overlooking New Street) were noisy late at night, and again very early in the morning with shop deliveries etc. We visited the German Market & attended a concert at the LG Arena during our stay, and with the train station right opposite the hotel, this was very convienient.

Excellent value for money

great city centre location, friendly staff. The room was clean and well presented, comfortable bed. There wasnt any noise from slamming doors etc so the rooms were quite well sound proofed. All in all a good nights sleep!

Value for money

The Britannia hotel is cheap and cheerful, clean and has the necessary facilities. Situated in the centre of Birmingham, it's convenient for New Street Station and City Centre attractions - all within walking distance.

pleasant, cheap & cheerful

It was splendid in its day but now very worn. However, everything was spotlessly clean and the breakfast choice was great and with friendly helpful staff it was a good stay. Surprisingly peaceful in the room despite it being a Friday night in the city centre. Only negative side is that we booked a disabled access room and there wasn't one available. We got a big room instead but getting in & out of the room in a small walled in corner was tricky at best. Also there were swing doors to get into the hotel itself - too small for a wheelchair. There is a an alternative way through but needs an able body person to go in and get the staff first. I then went via the fire escape and down a portable ramp. Apart from the access though it was good. Birmingham in general seemed to be a very difficult place to get about with a wheelchair - much harder than Sheffield, Liverpool, Nottingham and London.

Get what you pay for..

The hotel itself is in a great location 2 mins away from birmingham new street and right in the centre of all the shops and the bullring. It is around 10-15 min walk from broad street. The hotel reception are quite freindly, and the rooms are average. They are clean and tidy but if you geta double you get 2 single beds pushed together which is abit annoying. The bathroom is clean and has everything you need. The lighting in the room is not great as there is no main light just 3/4 sidelights. Breakfast was good with quite a good variety. Could do with some fruit. Overall decent hotel in great loaction.

The best thing about my stay was...

In great location to go shopping next day. Friendly service.
