Located in the iconic Cube building in the Mailbox you will find Hotel Indigo, offering sleek and stylish modern boutique rooms with stunning panoramic views of Birmingham. If there is one place to stay and see what Brum has to offer, it is definitely Hotel Indigo, get ready for a fabulous experience that won’t burn a hole in your wallet and will make you fall in love with Brum more!
Hotel Indigo boasts an impressive selection of rooms on the 24th floor of The Cube, from standard comfortable doubles to eye-dropping feature rooms with skyline views of Birmingham. I have been lucky enough to stay in both room’s in the past month, I have been living the suite life baby and here is how I found it! For my Birthday I decided to stay in one of Hotel Indigo’s Superior King Rooms with a balcony which was purchased via Booking.com for £122.
Arriving at Hotel Indigo, straight away you know you are in a prime location. Surrounded by bars, restaurants and retail, convenience at its best. If you’re arriving by train it’s only a 10-minute walk through the gorgeous Mailbox. For guests who are travelling by car, Hotel Indigo does not have a car park however when staying with the Hotel you do receive a 15% discount at The Mailbox car park which is a short 5-minute walk away. Checking in is very simple here, a few little scribbles and show off a card and you’re on your way to your room. The lady at the reception desk was very lovely, she noticed it was my birthday and wished me a Happy Birthday as well as giving me two complimentary drinks token’s in the Marco Pierre Restaurant on 25th Floor to celebrate, what a treat!
CO-VID measures have been put in place here, hand sanitising stations are provided around the hotel, face coverings are required, deep cleaning off rooms and social distancing measures are all put in place, and I have to say I felt very safe and comfortable at all times in the hotel. The hotel rooms are on the 24th floor, and there are lifts or if you really want a workout…the dreaded stairs, in which I wouldn’t recommend!
Please note that The Club Spa is not open due to CO-VID
SUPERIOR KING FEATURE ROOM WITH BALCONY
As I opened the door, my jaw dropped…Wow, now this is unique. The room oozes coolness throughout, it’s quirky, different and oh wait…EVEN PROVIDES BALLOONS AND COOKIES?!
That’s right people, I got birthday balloons, cookies and even a lovely birthday card from the staff, what a lovely gesture and had me beaming with joy when I read it.
The room was spotless, couldn’t fault it at all. The bathroom is big with a rainfall shower in which you could fit the rule of six in there and offers luxurious spa toiletries. The room also included a fancy coffee machine with coffee pods…my own coffee machine for the night? this could be dangerous…but so worth it! The room also provides tea facilities, robes and slippers, complimentary bottled water, massive plasma screen with a media hub (YouTube on tap Bab) and lots of wardrobe space. Plenty of towels and they also mentioned that if we needed any more there is a phone in the room to use and the staff can bring some more up. Plastic cups for drinks are supplied as well as take away cups if we fancied taking our coffee away with us or drink it outside on the balcony.
Let’s get to the best bit, the Balcony and wow, this is just sensational. Our private balcony showcases panoramic views of Birmingham (Get those EXTRA Instagram photos) chairs are provided so it was perfect at night in our robes, drinking our espressos watching Birmingham at night. Living the life of luxury for one night for just £122 for two people with a balcony offering beautiful skyline views of Birmingham is quite hard to find in Birmingham, However, Hotel Indigo provides this.
We headed out for Dinner and came back to the Marco Pierre Restaurant on level 25 to spend our drinks vouchers, it was quite quiet on Sunday, they offered outdoor seating that was of course, spaced out from other diners and heaters were provided. The view from the restaurant is also spectacular, and personally I think this is one of the best views of Birmingham. A variety of drinks are offer here from sassy cocktails to spicy spirits, a drink with a view at Marco Pierre’s is a must.
We did have an option of booking into the restaurant however we already had plans on the night to go elsewhere and already booked in for breakfast at another restaurant, The option is there for you when you check-in if you want to book breakfast which will cost £12.95 to add on to your stay.
Heading back to the room we decided to get in our robes and enjoy more of the view with our espressos then headed in for a film in our King size bed that was just glorious to sleep in. No noise disturbance, we both had a very fantastic and peaceful night’s sleep. I will metion that I do struggle a lot sleeping and getting comfortable due to back problems however I had no problems and I felt so comfortable, I wanted to live in it forever!
Living the luxury suite life on a budget at Hotel Indigo is something that will stay with me for a long time, for what you get for the money it is astounding, we all deserve treats especially with this crazy pandemic and so, I would recommend treating yourselves to a stay at Hotel Indigo especially in the feature/balcony rooms. Value for money is astounding, I have stayed in a couple of hotel’s in Birmingham for around about the £130 mark, and they do not come close to what Hotel Indigo offers to their guests. Smaller rooms, no luxuries and certainly no views that come close to this hotel so staying at Hotel Indigo you’re guaranteed amazing value for your money.
A massive thank you to the staff at the hotel for making my birthday so magical this year especially with the current circumstances, they still managed to deliver above and beyond. Hats off to you all for delivering exceptional service, sticking to Co-vid guidelines and ensuring the safety of their guests. A stay at Hotel Indigo is essential when visiting Birmingham, guaranteed to give all guests a stunning and memorable experience without burning a hole in their pocket!
Thank you to Hotel Indigo in Birmingham, I’ll be back again very soon!
