            7.8

            The location of the hotel was ideal for shopping and nightlife

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Breakfast and thats all.

            Ill fitting bed sheets,no air condition, inadequate drainage in bath shower and hand basin, Building work back ( under our window)-room 312) and in front of the loby. I did not book a family room - see further odwn in your questions. Genearl summary, a disaster area for the price

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Good location close to the city restaurant and shopping areas and on the canalside walk. Large, comfortable and well-appointed room.

            It was hard to find, not because it is hidden but because the entrance is not obvious (it is at the Starbucks). It would be useful to have a hotel direction sign in the Mailbox complex.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            The fact that we got charged for something we did not do and the hotel could not provide photo eveidence once i had left the hotel, i seemed as if they were trying to make a quick pound or two. also on arrival they gave us a complete wrong booking and tried to charge us extra ignoring the fact we had a print of our reservation.

          • Single
            7.4

            Clean and quiet; interesting location; staff keen to please

          • Couple
            6.6

            Friendly and helpful staff (asked if we could move room and this was no trouble at all). Coffee area in reception. Have stayed a couple of times and will be back.

            First room allocated seemed a little 'scruffy' especially the shower area. Carpets in communal areas seem a bit warn and threadbear in areas.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            I enjoyed the location of the hotel, straight out onto the mailbox canal side and 10 minute walk into town, rooms were nice and spacious.

          • Couple
            7.8

            Location was excellent, local cafe's, bars and restaurants were good. Pleasant walks along the canal network and thence into areas such as NIA, SeaLife Centre and Jewellery Quarter all within walking distance. Good loaction to act as a base for a shopping trip into the centre of Birmingham

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Lovely comfortable hotel and very quiet considering it was in the heart of the Mailbox, only thing i would mention is that the car park is NCP and this is not clear, it is nothing to do with the hotel, and is therefore very expensive.

            As above car paking facilities

          • Couple
            7.8

            Location was great. Very nice, comfortable, clean and spacious room.

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            Good location for bars and restaurants

            My room was extremeley noisy all night with water pipes and tanks above. Because the hotel was fully booked I was not able to move and therefore no sleep or refund, so avoid rooms 316 and 416 as I dont believe they will get any better also a lot of building work being done outside the hotel from 7.30am !!!!

          • Single
            9.2

            Good central location with easy access to town. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff friendly and willing to help.

            It was quite noisy as there was a bar situated underneath my room. Having said that it was quiet by 11pm. The hairdryer was missing and the room service menu was a bit limited.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            location was spot for pubs clubs and the symphony hall which was only a sunny five minute walk away which was the reason we went to birmingham in the first place

            the bed was very uncomfortable and i thought the price was quite high for a weekend stay plus £13 for breakfast come on people lets not do rip off briton

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Very well located near canal, shops, cafes. Easy walking distance from nia and icc. Perfectly acceptable business hotel room, no frills but wasn't looking for them. Would certainly stay there again if working in this part of Birmingham.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Staying at the Ramada was ideal for this business trip. Internet access in the rooms, wifi in the public areas, well located for the ICC and NIA and plenty of restaurants to choose from in the immediate vicinity.
