    Historical Traveler Reviews Nitenite Birmingham

    Location Location Location


    Have just returned from a two-night city break at the Nitenite Hotel Birmingham. I knew the room was going to be small but it was so small I found it funny. We could even get our Christmas shopping in the room with us The room was spotlessly clean and perfectly formed, bed comfortable, TV large, shower clean and powerful. I found the air con a bit warm though and craved fresh air each morning. But having said that the location was excellent in the city centre close to the bars, shops and restaurants. I paid the Internet rate of £39 per night, which was good value. I would use this hotel / chain again for city breaks when most of the day and night we would be out of the room. If you just want a bed and shower this is for you.

    Took some getting used to but not bad!


    There's no doubt about it, the rooms at nitenite are teeny tiny so make sure you know your companion well before you share a room here! It took a bit of getting used to but there is loads of room under the bed to stash bags and suitcases. The room was spotless and the fittings are of a high standard. I think I could only stay here for one night at a time though given that it is so small. The location is excellent - just round the corner from the Mailbox and a short walk to Brindley Place and the NIA. There is a Tesco Metro at the Mailbox if you want to pick up some bottled water (they don't have any in the vending machine in the hotel). The bed was super comfortable and it was a bit odd having to check the weather outside by switching on the telly (live shots of Brum on the plasma screen) but, all in all, not a bad experience and excellent value at £49.95.

    Compact and bijoux


    As a business traveller staying on my own for the odd single night this hotel is ideal.

    It's about 5-10 minutes walk from New Street station, even closer to Broad Street and the Mailbox.

    The room is well designed with a stool doubling as a seat and bedside table, and hangers on the wall and a separate wetroom with shower, basin and wc. The bed occupies virtually the whole room, which does have the advantage that you can't fall out. The walls are nicely padded. The absence of a window is mitigated by the plasma TV defaulting to views of Birmingham taken from video cameras on the roof of the hotel - so you get the penthouse view in every room! There's a good selection of TV channels, plus the usual rip off films - don't bother with those, the Electric arthouse cinema is close by and there are multiplexs in Broad Street and New Street.

    Overall the hotel has a modern, clean, secure feel.

    Criticisms would be that the aircon is a little noisy, you can hear people passing in the corridor and it would be awkward for anything but single occupancy.

    But for my purposes - good value.

    Wonderful Experience


    I have previously stayed at the Hyatt in Birmingham which is nice but this time I was on my own and didn't have anyone to share the expense with. The room was £49.95 and I booked via their website. The hotel is just round the corner from the Hyatt on Holliday Street and is literally 2 mins from New Street station (follow signs to the Mailbox). Reception was modern and spacious and receptionists were very friendly and efficient. They explained the control panel and gave me a keycard. The entire hotel is brand new and everything feels very good quality. The room itself is very compact but has everything you could want. The TV turns itself on to a view of Birmingham City Centre when you put your card into the control panel to control the lights. The lights never seem to be too bright in fact there are many combinations you can have with them. There are even lights under the bed. The desk is small but adequate with a small kettle, plastic mug and sachets of organic tea/coffee tucked into a cubby in the wall. There are 2 power points next to the desk. The TV has the usual terrestrial channels plus pay movies which cost £7.95 each and get charged to your bill. They also had BBC3, ITV2, The Hits, UK History, Sports channels. The bed was a good size and very comfortable with quality white cotton sheets and duvet and 2 pillows. There were 2 hangers on the wall plus 1 coat hook on the back of the door as there is no space for a wardrobe. I did not hear any noise while I was staying there but I was only there for a night out and I would not recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to spend significant time in the hotel room other than sleeping and getting ready. There was a lot of space under the bed for suitcases, shoes etc. The air conditioner was also under the bed and kept the room nice and cool. The bathroom is also small and decked out in wet room style. The glass door from the bathroom to the bedroom closes with a magnet so you have to be delicate with it in order to get it to stay closed. The shower was lovely and big hansgrohe pan head power shower. The sink was small but adequate and there was a wall mounted bin and a modern toilet. The toiletries were 1 small shower gel (not very nice) and 1 small shampoo and 1 toilet roll. I would have liked a piece of soap for washing hands. There were 2 small-ish bath towels supplied which would be fine for 1 shower but not really enough for 2. There was a big mirror in the bathroom and a large-ish one above the desk in the bedroom. No face-cloths were provided. The doors were open at 3am when I came back from my night out but the keycard I was told opens the door anyway. Check out is at noon and as there are no windows in the room you can sleep a long time without the distraction of the sun. In fact it would be easy to lose track of time if you did not set an alarm. I was not distracted by the panel as if you press the nitenite button it dims the panel. There was an ironing room opposite my room which you open with your keycard which would be useful if you can't hang everything up. I would definitely stay there again. Checking out was quick and easy and the receptionists were again lovely and offered to get me a taxi. I did not feel the slightest bit claustrophobic and in fact felt lovely and secure in my little oasis in the city.

    Interesting for single traveller


    The other reviews give a good overall picture. If there are two of you it might seem rather cramped, and you need to be in a relationship where one of you is happy to climb over the other to get out of bed! The green control panel has a dimming function I managed to fine, so that was okay. The menu of tv/radio claimed they had Radio 3 so I was looking forward to listening to the Prom concert, but they were not telling the truth, it was another station - Radio Bloke I think. There was no soap in the bathroom, very poor I thought, Sainsburys on Broad Street to the rescue. Staff said there was no supposed to be any. Staff didn't know if the film channels were free, eventually rang someone who told them, and me, it was 7.50.

    In spite ot this, I liked it and would go back (with soap, obviously). The location is great, the deli for breakfast was very nice. Bit pricey but fun.

    Shoe box chic!


    My husband and I have just returned from a 1 night break at Nitenite. I don't think we could have stayed in the shoebox for any longer than 1 night!

    Here's our list of pro's and con's.


    Sleek, modern design

    Spotlessly clean, even in the bathroom where you normally find something that's not quite up to scratch!

    Soft, clean bed linen but only 1 pillow each (I'm sure reception would have given us more if we had asked)

    42" plasma screen was nice thing to have if you don't have one at home

    Vending machines of snacks, hot and cold beverages

    Green touch screen panel to control all lighting options, a/c and intercom - cool looking gadget

    Free use of the internet

    Helpful and friendly reception staff

    Rooms quite well soundproofed

    Social seating area in reception

    Centrally located for all the main Birmingham attractions, 2 min walk to Broad Street and to the Canal leading to the Mailbox, 5 mins walk to Centenary Square

    Council carpark opposite hotel (but £12 for 24 hrs)


    Smaller than half a Thomson cruise cabin

    When the lights go out it feels very claustrophobic and hot even with the aircon on

    The green light given off from the panel seems to glow and keep you awake

    The café next door is only open at breakfast time

    The hallways are noisy

    No hotel parking

    Got the concept, just wasn't for me!


    I can understand how & why the concept works. It's easy to see how someone who spends little time in their room would find this extremely good value. A 2 night stay would be maximum for most people as there is no drawer space and only 2 cute coat hangers on the wall.

    Bathroom is well laid out with wet room facilities.

    Bed comfy with nice sheets but very very small, I'm not sure I could share even if I knew the person very well!!!

    The noise insulation between rooms seemed very good, although I'm not sure what the occupancy level was.

    The staff were pleasant and breakfast was fine and reasonable value at 5 pounds. There was parking within a short distance of the hotel, in the Crowne Plaza car park - but be warned only cars under 6' can get in and so that excluded my car and I had to park on the road (free between 6pm - 8am) but 4 pounds 60 p for 2 hours (max stay) outside these hours.

    Plenty of places to eat (short walking distance) in Brindley Place.

    My problems came when I turned the lights out to go to sleep, background noise from the extractor in the bathroom and air conditioning unit (not great performance!) along with the dimmed light from the control panel (great piece of kit!) gave me fitful sleep and I started to feel claustrophobic.

    I booked for 2 nights but only managed to stay 1. Great for some people - but not for me.

    Loved the room


    This hotel is fantastic the concept was a bit of a shock when i first arrived but once i spent time in the room i really started to love it. Being a lady traveller i thought the room gave a sence of security because they are so snug. I thought the 42 inch Plasma is amazing enjoyed lying in bed watching the movies. Breakfast was great vaule for money at just £5 for continental. The receptionist are very friendly and extremely helpful and i felt very relaxed walking into the hotel. There were no problem with the shower door which stayed shut nitenite is in a fantastic location and was extremely closed to new street station. I would recommend nitenite to anybody and i can't wait to return.

    OK if you like small!


    Stayed in the NiteNite for one night and not sure it is an experience I would repeat in a hurry. Whilst hotel and rooms are very nicely decorated it definately would not suit anyone who is claustraphobic in any way.

    The rooms are very small and are in fact pods that have no windows. Large plasma screen TV's dominate the rooms and you can have views of Birmingham to compensate for the lack of windows!

    I would only advise staying in the room with someone you are very intimate with because, not only is there a lack of space, the shower/toliet room door does not close properly because the door also acts as a shower screen - so basically a lack of privacy!

    Nite Nite is in a great location. The staff are very friendly and it is new and clean. The price also includes continental breakfast, which was a nice surprise and the breakfast room is nice and roomy and pretty trendy.

    ... We arrived in Stratford and first went to Ann Hathaways house. This was her house before she married Shakespeare. Truly an amazing house and gardens and trying to get our heads wrapped around the fact that the house was from 1400. We then headed into town to Shakespeare birthplace which was a lot smaller and right in centre of town. We learned a lot about his life. Sad that he had no direct descendants only a great nephew that kept things going. After a tour around ...
