Moving to Birmingham and Your Relocation Options
If you are considering moving to Birmingham, you are not alone. Londoners are particularly keen on relocating to Birmingham, in fact, Londoners choose the Second City over any other place in the UK.
The reasons why people choose to move to Birmingham are many; the city has undergone a huge transformation and regeneration over the last twenty years and has attracted some growth industries - therefore it has some great jobs to offer. The average house price* in Birmingham is just £140,200 compared to a whopping £465,900 in London, giving Brummies a great standard of living. It’s slap bang in the middle of the country with great transportation links: Manchester and London are just 90 minutes away by train. On top of that, it also has great culture and food. Home to the Balti, Birmingham also has a reputation for great street food as well as boasting five Michelin star restaurants - so you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out. Finally, with the trendy Custard Factory and a newly rejuvenated city centre, there are great shopping options too.
Despite all the great things Birmingham has going for it, we know that moving to a new city probably remains a bit of a daunting prospect. That’s why many people use Staying Cool serviced apartments for their Birmingham relocation. Our serviced apartments in Birmingham make the perfect base for exploring the city and finding that all important new home. Here are a few reasons why:

All your home comforts
A Staying Cool serviced apartment combines all the luxury of a boutique hotel with the privacy of your own home. Why camp out in a hotel room when you can have separate bedrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen and living accommodation all for the same price?
Our Clubman, Maxi and Penthouse apartments have very spacious lounges and kitchens. Even our smallest apartments - our Mini studios - have living areas where you can work and relax, and galley kitchens where you can prepare meals. Our living areas come fully equipped with an iPod docking station, a TV with Sky channels and Blue Ray DVD, plus superfast Wi-Fi.
Make yourself at home. Kitchens come complete with a fridge, a microwave, an oven and a dishwasher, so you won’t be stuck eating out every night. Each apartment also has a washer drier, an ironing board and an iron, so there is no need to pay exorbitant rates to get your laundry done. We also offer a same-day dry cleaning service with very reasonable prices should you need it.
When you arrive you will find your apartment fully stocked with a range of complimentary goodies. Not only will you find cereals, fresh milk, Fair-trade teas and hot chocolate, but we also supply fresh oranges for the juicer and fresh coffee and coffee pods for the Gaggia coffee machine. Basic ingredients such as salt and pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar are all there if you need them and if you don’t have time to shop, we’ll do your grocery shopping for you for a charge of £12.
We don’t skimp when it comes to the bedrooms either. Each bedroom comes with a king-size bed with pocket sprung mattress and memory foam so you get the best night’s sleep going.
Finally, we recognise that being in short stay accommodation can sometimes wreak havoc with your waistline, so we even throw in a complimentary gym membership to any guest who stays for a month or more.
