Rooms include an unusually large forty two inch flat screen television, free on demand pay TV and beverage facilities. Free and premium Wi-Fi is available as is hypoallergenic bed linen if requested. En-suite bathrooms contain a range of must have toiletries.

Apart from 131 guest rooms, pentahotel Birmingham provides car parking spaces plus access to nearby facilities. There is a safe deposit box facility, copy and fax machine and room service on request.

Matteo Thun designed the pentalounge as a relaxing bar, restaurant and meeting area, again with relaxation as the over riding theme.

Positive Reviews

A good atmosphere

Happy, helpful staff make you feel completely at ease. Add to this, a great buffet breakfast and a convivial bar with free pool table, plus a huge selection of bars and restaurants nearby; what’s not to like!

Late check out!

Where else can you relax after the night before and check out at 3pm. Brill! The downside is that some need a good night’s sleep and an early morning check out. At least, this hotel tries to cater for everyone!

Pot luck parking

If the gods are smiling, you’ll take a swerve into a rare, free on street parking space. Don’t count on this though, the gods in charge of Birmingham car parking are not known for their smiling disposition!!

Negative Reviews

Poor room quality

Bad housekeeping, outdated and uninviting rooms that are missing the essentials of facilities, combine to create a complete turn off!

A restaurant and room service to avoid

The restaurant choice is ‘limited’ with room service geared to the supply of pizzas, burgers and sandwiches. Not on, really. The bonus is that, with so many quality clubs, pubs and restaurants nearby, there is no need to rely on this indifferent in house service.


You are bombarded with this from a number of sources. First, of course, fellow guests do all they can to keep you awake all night and then, this is augmented by the noise and traffic outside.
