Staying Cool at the Rotunda

""..our apartment was equipped with a fully functioning kitchen, replete with oranges for juicing, a juicer, coffee grounds for grinding, a coffee machine, and the most swaggy open-plan living room, framed by a seemingly endless view..."" Wonderland Magazine

"The New York Times recently named our second city as one of the hottest destinations for 2012...Its favourite place to stay? Staying Cool's apartments atop the Rotunda..." The Sunday Times

Welcome to Staying Cool

If you love style and design and are looking for a place that's as individual as you are, then you will love Staying Cool - a small, independently owned company.

Our serviced apartments in Birmingham and Manchester blend boutique hotel comfort with the space and freedom of an apartment.

We would like you to think of our serviced apartments as the hip alternative to a hotel – the equivalent of your own suite – kitted out with bespoke pieces from some of the hottest UK designers but with the independence, personality (no two are the same) and value of your own wow apartment.

Book via our website for our best rates

We guarantee that it is always cheaper to book a Staying Cool serviced apartment direct with us, than via a booking agent. Either book via this website or via our Guest Relations Team: email hello@stayingcool.com or call +44 (0)121 285 1290. You will save between 5-25%. Rates from a recession beating £99 per night (and even less for longer stays!).
