Great alternative to a regular hotel for families. You have all the things you need to cater for eating in if desired with added little touches that make it easier to travel with kids. Decent coffee, fresh orange, milk and cereal are great as well as sky tv, books, games and magazines. It's good value for money as we got...

I had to book at pretty short notice to attend my current project, at a location on the outskirts of Birmingham. The usual suspects out where I would be working were either all booked up or at extortionate prices. Then I happened upon Staying Cool. £129 a night for a one-bedroom apartment? Sign me up! Staying Cool has its serviced...

The location in the daytime was fantastic, great views, close to transport and in the centre of all the shops - but unfortunately at the moment Birmingham seems to have a problem with homelessness which is affecting the area. I grew up in Birmingham but on this visit I did not like having to walk through town at night by...

This is a rental rather than a hotel with limited customer service between 10pm and 8am. I was unlucky as no hot water in the morning - you need to phone a call-centre - the adviser said she just provided a "messaging service" and didn't apologise or sound remotely bothered or invested. Eventually (after calling twice) a security guard came...

Practically faultless, stayed for the New Year sales and we could not have been in a better spot. Stunning views and ultra trendy rooms. We could be critical, the bedrooms themselves are not the largest, but the living room was huge! We will definitely return.

Easy check in. Lovely room with well equipped kitchen. Really liked the personal touch of milk in the fridge, 'real' coffee and oranges for juicing. Clean and well presented throughout. Great views of Birmingham and right in the heart of the city. We shall be back.
