December 25th is only a few weeks away and the centre of Birmingham is looking lovely as the Christmas Lights were switched on last Friday.

Red's Top European Holiday Apartments02 November 2012

Staying Cool at the Rotunda has been selected by Red as one of their top picks for self catering apartments in Europe.

Red says, "Staying Cool's 20 apartment rentals are really something else. For a start, there's the 1960s style - aping the decade the Grade II-listed tower was built - with bright white space-age style kitchens and large prints of Twiggy-esque models in industrial  Birmingham adorning the walls.

"With studios, 1-bed and 2-bed apartments available, they work for families, business trips and weekend breakers equally well, while they're absolutely perfect for a one-off super-romantic weekend."
