Staying Cool offers 26 serviced apartments forming a small, boutique-style Apart Hotel on the top four floors of the iconic Rotunda – a rare, grade II listed architectural stunner in the heart of the city centre. This is the place to choose for business or pleasure.
The Rotunda is a striking glass tube stretching up into the sky. Apartments come in four sizes – studios, one beds, two beds and two-bed penthouses. Each one is individually styled with original artwork and bespoke furniture. We named them after the famous cars made down the road at Longbridge: Minis, Clubmans, Maxis and Roadsters.
All apartments radiate out from a central, circular lobby. Each serviced apartment has floor-to-ceiling glass in place of an external wall. Huge French windows, that open fully, bring the outdoors in and give magnificent views over the city. A waist-height barrier keeps you safe without spoiling the views.
Design-wise, there is a combination of contemporary cool with swinging sixties style. Enjoy well-equipped Poggenpohl kitchens, smart white bathrooms and Apple computers. Gaggia or Francis Francis espresso makers and iPod docks complete the look. Click HERE to book – prices start from £129.50 per night
This previously disused Eye Hospital is the distinctive location of Hotel du Vin. This ornate, early Victorian red brick building in the old city centre, now part of the newly revitalised Jewellery Quarter, was sympathetically converted to provide 66 rooms around a courtyard. A relaxing haven in the city, offering a spa, gym and Pub du Vin serving local ales and traditional pub food with a du Vin twist.
With timelessly styled bedrooms and stunning suites, all featuring luxurious handsprung mattresses, fine Egyptian linen and powerful drench showers, plasma TVs and air conditioning. As we have sensitively converted this iconic building, in order to maintain its unique features no two guest rooms are the same. There are various styles of rooms from standard, deluxe, studios and suites. All rooms have the same little luxuries but come in various shapes and sizes, and some even with the signature du Vin roll top bath. Click HERE to book – prices start at £125.00 per night
