- There’s an onsite restaurant & bar, plus a gym
- Some of the modern rooms feature extras such as Nespresso coffee machines
Amid the bars and shops of Birmingham’s bustling Broad Street, this Novotel chain hotel boasts an enviable position in the city centre. It’s near the canal and Birmingham’s most famous attractions, among them the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery -- a 12 minute walk away.
The Mailbox -- an upscale shopping mall featuring Harvey Nichols store -- is also a 12 minute stroll from the hotel. The National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham and the Barclaycard Arena (a sports and music venue) are both within 7 minutes by foot from the hotel. Only slightly further away is the Bullring Shopping Centre, with its striking Selfridge’s metallic exterior.
Inside the hotel, contemporary décor prevails. A hot buffet breakfast is served every morning and included in some rates, plus there’s an elegant onsite restaurant serving international cuisine. Other facilities include a bright, stylish bar, a small gym and a sauna.
Modern rooms with free Wi-Fi have flat-screen TVs with pay-per-view movies. Guests can upgrade to an Executive Room for Nespresso coffee machines, Bose iPod docking stations and free water. Another Novotel plus are their family-friendly policies: up to 2 children under the age of 16 stay for free in their parent’s room, and their buffet breakfasts are complimentary too.
