The summer holidays are coming up fast. If you are looking for a city break, give one of our serviced apartments a try. They are ideal for time away with young children or teens as they offer privacy and space.
If you stay at one of our Rotunda apartments in Birmingham, your family can enjoy Cool for Kids extras at no charge. They'll help to make your family time away even more fun.
We've had a great time watching the promo video for Birmingham's Mostly Jazz Funk and Soul Festival. The event kicks off on Friday, July 11th and features greats such as the Fun Lovin' Criminals, Ginger Baker and Earth Wind and Fire. Craig Charles will be DJing.

Book with us online to stay at Rotunda between June 23rd and July 6th quoting WIMBLEDON14. We'll pop strawberries and cream in the fridge for you to enjoy while you watch the tournament in your apartment.
Great to see Birmingham's Electric in Shortlist's pick of
Britain's coolest cinemas. The Electric is a
wonderful place just around the corner from Rotunda
and the staff will take great care of you.
The Electric's programming is also very imaginative: this weekend alone, you can choose from Jersey Boys, The Fault In Our Stars, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, American Interior, and Withnail and I. Great stuff.
We're happy to say that we have been given a great review by Cool Places, a new site from the founders of Rough Guides: "It's a fantastic experience to see the City change from day to night while still having the peace of your own private and luxurious sanctuary." You can read the whole piece here.
