Best in Broad Street?

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2012

This hotel is near Brindley Place, the theatres, nightclubs, restaurants and a couple of small shops that sell ready-meals if you are desperate. It is a 5 min walk to the Museum and Art Gallery...and 10-15 min walk from New Street Station and the Bullring.

If you arrive at New Street and take a taxi to Jurys Inn, around 5-6pm, beware that due to traffic it takes double the amount of time to get to the hotel and it costs double. I was charged 10GBP for the short journey.

Unique Quality: I had a lovely ensuite room overlooking the canal on the 11th floor. I enjoyed flat screen tv, a choice of two double beds, the usual tea and coffee facilities, nice crisp linen and a choice of pillows; I liked it that the curtains are thick, and if you are not used to the British summer day starting around 4am you can sleep on. Fresh towels every day. Bar and restaurant onsite. Can catch the bus to and from New Street opposite hotel if you hate to walk.

I dont get it that these big hotel groups cant provide herb teas. There is no safe in the room or a fridge, or indeed no ice machine where you can help yourself. Reception have small safe boxes where you can leave stuff but they are tiny and it is very inconvenient to have to ask at reception every time you need to use it. Although there is a ramp for your cases into the hotel, there are steps up the reception desk, which some people hate.

Directions: Almost opposite Brindley place.

OK business hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 19, 2009

This is marketed as one of Birmingham's best hotels. Mmm - doesn't say much for the others or, more likely, the reality is not quite the hype.

It's basically an efficient, soulless business hotel, highlighted by the large, white, featureless marbled foyer. The rooms are reasonably sized, but a little run-down and the furnishings have seen better days. But the location is good, the hotel is not awful - just not memorable.

Unique Quality: Good location, efficient, comfortable but nothing more.

Directions: Close to Gas St Basin

Nice facade, disappointing rooms!

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 23, 2007

This hotel conveniently situated approximately half way along Broad Street, one of the main drinking and eating thoroughfares and very close to the Indoor Arena etc. Jury's Inn has a good reputation and when you enter the Birmingham Jury's you are initially impressed by the spacious and appealing reception area. The staff on the reception desk are mulyi lingual to cater for the international business people that come here. The hotel has a lovely restaurant and bar with a range of tasty food options. The standard rooms are very basic I'm afraid and the room we had was cluttered and seemed ill designed (my very personal opinion). Typical amenities are available such as satellite tv. There is a car park that charges about £3 per day at the rear of the hotel (well signed). The bonus of this hotel for me was the good price - £80 per night when we stayed and the Jury's Doyle website often advertises great bargains.
This hotel is nothing special but if you want a clean and well located hotel that is good value for money then the Jury's will suit. If you want a romantic break or something more then try the Hyatt or Radisson SAS instead!

Unique Quality: There are no features of this hotel that make it stand out.

Concrete monstrosity

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 5, 2006

The building is one ugly mess of concrete. In it's first incarnation it housed British Telecom in Birmingham. When you look at the service areas or staircases, the ghosts of Dave and Mikey from accounts or Derdrie from the typing pool still seem to be hanging around. The utilitarian ceiling tiles also hark back to the dark ages.

It was converted into a 450 room hotel and known as the 'Chamberlain' for several years. Ultimately owned by an American company, the layout of the hotel looks across the pond for inspiration. The rooms are thus exceptionally large by European standards. Many standard rooms feature two double beds. This may be execeptionally useful when you consider the International Convention centre is just across the road. We all know what goes on at those photocopier trade fairs...eh ?

Taken over by the Jury's group, they have brought their Irish flair to running the place. They make good fist of it. Clean and effecient management.

Unique Quality: Large rooms, and good views from the upper floors. From the 16th floor I could see all of Aston !

The 'corners of the world' buffet on the Lower ground floor does mass-catering in a buffet / canteen style. You too can mix up Italian, British, Indian and Chinese on the same plate for around 12 pounds at Lunchtime, or a bit more in the evening. Breakfast at nearly 10 pounds was poor in comparison.

Reasonably priced city center hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 16, 2005

Here on business for three days, the local office of my company booked this hotel for me.

Rooms are MUCH larger than one usually finds in European hotels, as you can see by the photo. Two double beds with lots of space around them.

But why is it that so many hotels just don't understand how to make a shower comfortable?

Here again, that hated half-panel glass partition that forces you to make impossible contortions to turn the water on without soaking yourself in cold water. And these particular controls were very difficult to figure out and manage.

Then, once you step in, copious amounts of water end up on the bathroom floor no matter how hard you try to position your body to avoid this.

And couldn't they provide two towels? - those of us with long hair could really use a second towel.

And the hair dryer. It was bolted down, inside a drawer in the bedroom, NOT the bathroom, making it impossible to see yourself in a mirror while drying you hair.

Ah well. All in all, the hotel was fine. Modern, convenient, clean, with just about everything you need.

Perhaps best, they are located next door to a good restaurant with good wines, Il Vilaggio. This was particularly helpful when the heavens opened up one cold night and it poured and poured, making the idea of even a cab ride unpleasant. I recommend the Pollo Valdostone (chicken breast with prosciutto -- mmmmm!)

At 80 pounds for a single, I would say it was a decent deal.

Directions: 245 Broad Street

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

All Chamberlain rooms are en-suite and include telephone, satellite colour TV and tea & coffee making facilities as standard.
Nice hotel for business meetings, a bit sterile for holiday trips.
