Excellent value for money & good location

Not bad for the price

Although the room we were given this time was a bit shabbier than ones we have had previously. the room was clean and warm and as we were only sleeping there it did us for one night.

Far too noisey

This is a cheap and cheerful hotel. however, there are groups of young people who seem to use it as a 'drinking den'. the noise throughout the night was just awful.

wouldn't recommend it on our one night stay experience.

It does what it says on the tin

The accommodation was slightly "plain vanilla"; decorative repair not 100% (eg some chipped bathroom tiles)but everything was clean where it mattered. (i don't think a dusty top door moulding visible only from the shower matters!)sound insulation between rooms should be considered when any refurbishment is done.

we ate there - food and wine was very acceptable and was also complimented by friends of ours who frequent much posher hotels than we do...

the staff were friendly, relaxed and helpful without being over-familiar. can't say fairer than that!

if you want uriah heep deference from staff and immaculate decor, then go somewhere else and spend a lot more money.

if you want a more "at home" place to stay and staff you can get on with, pay less and come to the apollo.

[erratum - i did not assess "services" or "business services" but the web site wouold not let me post comments unless something was inserted - so ignore those two data fields.]

Great value hotel

Apart from a window not shutting properly the room was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. the decor is a little dated but if you don't mind then this is an ideal hotel for a trip to birmingham, plus the breakfast was yummy.
