Stayed here in May when we got upgraded. No such luck this time but we did get a free bottle of wine and even better views. But we were only here for one night and at £96 it's a bargain. The free parking would cost £20, and the free oranges, juicer, coffee, muesli and granola saves buying breakfast out. It... More

I stayed here for one night with my partner, as we wanted to visit the Christmas markets which were literally on our doorstep. We were welcomed by smiley and friendly reception staff as we entered the building. The apartment was beautiful, well presented, cleaned to a good standard and the views were amazing. I would 100% recommend friends and family... More

We stayed over for a big night out with friends. The "mini' apartment we had on the 18th floor was very spacious and funky looking - fabulous views over the City, the fresh orange juice (with oranges in the fridge!) was a welcome cure for the mild hangovers. Very stylish place, very helpful front desk (thanks Alex!), highly recommended. I... More

Just had a weekend break with my friend at the Rotunda and left feeling somewhat underwhelmed. The view and location really are 5 star, couldn't ask for more dramatic or closer to shopping and nightlife which gave a really good vibe and made going out in the evening really safe and easy. I'm not an overly fussy person but thought... More

This really is as good as the claim - no fuss at reception and a huge 17th floor apartment with a great kitchen, furniture and views. The mattress was perfect, the coffee great and the oranges for juicing such a good idea I wish every hotel copied it. Very close to New Street Station - if you have to visit... More

The apartments were lovely everything you need for a weekend away. The shops were on the door step, we couldn't believe how close they were, and the views were stunning. It's not a hotel but it includes breakfast, fresh oranges for juice, lots of lovely tea and coffee. Can't wait to go back.
