Staying Cool at the Rotunda
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 the Rotunda would be a more apt description as the accommodation here is of rock-star quality, housed within the city’s most iconic building – now a Grade-2 listed landmark. 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.
The Rotunda's circular shape lends these idiosyncratic upper-floor apartments a 'cheese wedge' design, while the floor-to-ceiling windows allow for great panoramic views. The white bespoke furniture keeps everything refreshingly light and airy, even in the smaller studio rooms, 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, Apple entertainment systems with iTunes, ultra-fast wifi and satellite TV… plus aromatherapy bathroom products and complimentary breakfast cereals. The staff and service are slick and professional, and you also couldn’t be more central for the many delights of Brum – the Rotunda is handy for both stations, the Bull Ring and other shopping centres.
35 serviced apartments, located on the top floors – studios, 1- and 2-bedroom apartments, and 2-bedroom penthouses.
PriceStudios from £95 a night, Clubman apartments (one bedroom) from £129, Maxi apartments (two bedrooms) from £170, Penthouse (two bedrooms) from £299.
