In Birmingham, we've held the city's only five star rating for our larger apartments at Rotunda for six years now and we have been awarded a prestigious Gold Award by Visit England and entered the prestigious Tripadvisor Hall of Fame in 2015.

We've had some glowing media reviews but most importantly, our guests say some pretty nice things about us too.


"You guys make the rest of the hospitality industry look like rank amateurs! I'll be recommending Staying Cool to everyone I know who is headed in your direction"

Dave Keffer, Film & TV Editor

"Great views, stunning and unusual design, topped off by fantastic service. I'll be back."

Tom Bloxham, Chairman, Urban Splash & Vice Chancellor Manchester University

"We loved our stay. If only we had Staying Cool in London"

James Lohan, Founder Mr & Mrs Smith

"the location, the facilities, the décor, the attention to detail....every aspect exceeded our expectations"

Mark McGrath

"What an amazing stay we had at the Rotunda. Could not have asked for anything more. Amazing views, staff and shops on our doorstep. Really easy to get to, 5 mins away from the train station. We had a special offer and definitely got value for money. I could have stayed in our Mini apartment forever."

Louise R

"This hotel is simply perfect, and it s not often I use that word except on my girlfriend occasionally. From start to finish our stay was just outstandingly good, the accommodation, the location & the food, I could not critique a single part of the experience."

Alan W

"What can i say about this hotel this is one of the best hotel not only in Birmingham but in uk and the staffs are very friendly as well we had a very good view of Birmingham."

David M

"Just returned from a great stay at the Rotunda which lived up to every expectation! Just as described, stayed in Clubman-Cabriolet with the bull on the terrace. Staff super helpful and courteous."

Antony T

"Bored of hotel rooms? Want something different and easy to get to in Birmingham....stay here. Just brilliant. Fantastic location, 4 minutes from Moor street and New Street. Right in the very heart of the city... I don't think anywhere in the centre is more than 8 minutes walk."

Jake D

"Simplicity at its finest. For those who like home comforts with a metropolitan feel, this is for you. Has all the essentials and would highly recommend the penthouse suite. Would definitely stay here again for a birthday weekend or business."

Bernie R

"Stayed here as part of our wedding anniversary celebrations. Couldn't be happier with the room and service we had. The views are spectacular."

Ben M

"The best hotel stay we've ever had. My husband and I stayed just one night in the Clubman-Cabriolet apartment. Not long after arriving we realised we should have booked longer but alas the room was already booked."

Kim B

"My wife, son and I stayed here for one night. Perfect. Very spacious and airy 2 bedroom apartment; everything we needed for our stay was present. Excellent bathroom products. All we needed for breakfast in the kitchen area. Very centrally located. Really good value."

Jonnel L

"The apartment was immaculate, beds extremely comfortable and location couldn't have been better. We had the penthouse apartment - value for money. This is an exceptional city centre property. We will definitely use again!"
