Excellent location, with easy access to the centre of the city. Considering the hotel was hosting multiple Christmas parties the staff went out of their way to cater for the residents. Although the hotel was built in the 70´s the refurbishment has brought the hotel into the 21st century, much like Birmingham city centre.

I have stayed at Thistle Birmingham City on several occasions and normally it is an enjoyable experience. I arrived at hotel yesterday and at 6pm and by 9pm I was back in my room as I was feeling unwell. The room opposite had very loud music blaring out into the corridor this continued for about an hour. Then throughout the whole night until 4.30 am I was kept awake by the door of the room opposite being slammed shut very loudly and also a lot of shouting was going on in the corridor for same period of time. Today I left at 8.30am and I am so exhausted as I did not get any sleep last night. AS the rooms do not have a telephone I could not call reception to complain and as I was feeling very weak I did not want to walk to reception. I have to say that I will not stay at hotel again and I will not recommend the hotel to my work colleagues and friends after this appalling experience. Before I left this morning I did mention my dissatisfaction to reception as I checked out.

Stayed in a wheelchair accessible suite. It was a very good size and had about the best wheelchair accessible washroom I have every seen. The hotel is within a few blocks of good shopping and pubs. The restaurant was up a set of stairs on which the staff placed aluminium ramps. These worked, but I wouldn't want to take a power chair on them and it may be best to have someone with you as the ramps were quite long and the slope a bit steep.

Nice hotel. Location is decent, very near Snow Hill train station, just at the top of the town. Staff were friendly. The room was a decent size, the bathroom included a bath and was kept clean. The heater was good and its controls functional. My room overlooked the street, so opening the window was a noisy option to cool the room. So, the negative. My room was not cleaned and ready until 3pm, strange when check-in time was 2pm... Also, the cleaners seemed to have no set plan – sometimes my room would not be cleaned until very late in the day. The Thistle Hotel is a nice hotel and reasonably located, but just a few little things let them down. But a good option for the price-range.

Service was OK, apart from some miscommunication on the first evening. Only used front desk to book a cab. Did not use restaurant or bar facilities. As for the cleaning of the room, it was OK but one day they forgot to leave a face towel and they did not replaced shower cups, gel etc... (stayed 3 nights)

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It was very easy to find and the directions on the hotel website were excellent. The rooms were lovely and the hotel rate which we obtained on this webiste was great value. The only complaint we would have was that the bar area was very cold. We asked that they put the heating on but they said that they would have to heat the whole floor and that it would take several hours. They did bring out some plug in heaters though.

A good hotel, but expensive compared to other places I have been, considering I had to pay for breakfast and for internet access (24h 10 pounds) , which I did not end up using more than 30 min of.

We booked a double/twin room, when we arrived the bed was a very small double, more like a 3/4 size of a standard double which didnt allow for a very good nights rest.
