Stylish accommodation in the heart of the Birmingham City Centre

The serviced apartments at Staying Cool may just be one of Birmingham city centre’s best-kept secrets – as discreet as you like, with no signage indicating a place to stay. And in fact, Staying Very Cool at Rotunda would be a more apt description as the accommodation here is of rock-star quality, housed within the city’s most iconic building – a landmark structure from 1965 that is now a Grade-II listed building. With nearby Selfridges as your 'corner shop', and British designers given free rein in the classy interiors, these are Instagram-ready city breaks in waiting.

Rotunda's apartments vary in size, ranging from studios ('Mini'), one-beds ('Clubman'), two-beds ('Maxi') and two-bed penthouses ('Roadsters').  The building's circular shape lends these idiosyncratic upper-floor apartments a 'cheese wedge' design, while the floor-to-ceiling windows allow for great panoramic views. Bespoke furniture keeps everything refreshingly light and airy, even in the smaller studios, and they all boast proper pocket-sprung king-size beds and high-end fixture and fittings – Poggenpohl kitchens with dishwashers and washer/dryers, Illy espresso makers, ultra-fast wifi and a SkyTV package… plus aromatherapy bathroom products and complimentary breakfast cereals and a tuck shop for snacks.  Rotunda is also a deliberately sustainable place to stay, and has always placed an emphasis on paying its staff a living wage, using renewable energy sources and working with local suppliers, so not only can you be comfortable you can feel smug about it too.

The staff and service are slick and professional, and you also couldn’t be more central for the many delights of Brum – Rotunda is handy for both stations, the Bull Ring and other shopping centres and pretty much everything else you might want to see in central Birmingham.

Mini studios from £149 a night, Maxi two-bedroom apartments from £450.

A haven of peace in the City

Staying Cool at the Rotunda does exactly what it says in the title. On the 20th floor with floor to ceiling glass doors in the lounge and both bedrooms the penthouse views are awesome. 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. This apartment - hotel has everything you need for a fabulous stay and just a short lift ride away all the shops and restaurants of the Bullring. It's in walking distance of New Street station and just a 10 minute train journey to the LG arena and NEC centre, great for watching a band then living the highlife. The staff are friendly and helpful, the apartment has everything you would ever need to eat in or just chill out but the views have to be seen to be believed. I loved the Rotunda and can't wait for an oppurtunity to stay again.
