Positive Reviews

Perfect location for entertainment and holidays

The fact that the distances to both the NEC and the LG Arena can be measured in yards (1258 and 1860 respectively) shows how convenient this hotel is for shows and exhibitions Having the International train station close by, where you can connect to the airport for free via the AirRail Link monorail, makes jetting off on your hols a breeze as well.

Rooms are just right

The rooms at the Holiday Inn Express Birmingham NEC are modern, clean, comfortable and a good size In short, they're everything you would want a simple hotel room to be The free in-room Wi-Fi tops things off nicely.

Courteous, proactive staff

As well as a welcoming smile and a warm greeting when you arrive, you can expect a 'can do' attitude from the hotel's staff members if you should find yourself in a quandary or needing a helping hand Very hospitable all round.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast can be a little chaotic

Chaotic is perhaps a little strong, but long waiting times, missing cutlery items, inadequate plates and hurried (and sometimes surly) service often conspires to make the breakfast experience at this hotel a less than impressive affair Still, it is free.

You have to pay for the privilege of parking

You have to pay for the privilege of parking It just doesn't feel right to shell out extra for hotel parking when you're already a paying guest After all, it's not a de-facto airport car park!

Limited daytime eating options

Once you've had your gratis breakfast there isn't much else to enjoy food wise in the hotel until the restaurant starts serving meals in the early evening Happily, there is a nice pub next door to the hotel ('The Little Owl') proffering meals all throughout the day.
