About this listing
Situated at the Edge of Birmingham City Centre (20 min walk), this is a new (3 yr old) apartment in a good vicinity.
It is close to New Street Station (1.1 mile), Digbeth Coach Station (1.2 miles), Broad Street (1 mile). Mailbox, O2 academy, China town, Arcadian, Gay village are also quite close by (0.8) miles. Bullring is around 1.2 miles, so is Colmore row/Colmore Business District.
There are plenty of places to visit within 1 mile radius and to explore the city.

All space within the apartment.
1. Washing machine is available to use for £3 supplement per cycle (we do provide detergent and fabric softener)

Interaction with guests
We live 20 min walk from the apartment and will be meeting the guest at the time of their arrival.
Apart from arrival, we will have limited interaction with our guests but we are available if need be or via phone/ / etc.
Nice, quiet but still vibrant neighbourhood. Most hangout places such as Mailbox, Arcadian etc. are less than a mile way or within a mile radius. Few parks in the area (with basketball courts) and also the botanical garden which is a mile away. University of Birmingham is also 20-25 min walk from the apartment.
Coming from Birmingham/BHX airport: The taxi is a good option but you could also consider taking a train from the airport to Birmingham New Street Station (i would recommend a open return ticket on Virgin train: it is a 10 minutes journey and its about £3.50 for a open return and the trains are fast, clean & often). The taxi costs around £27-£32 depends on the company. We also provide airport pick-up or drop-off for a fixed price of £20 each way (subject to availability)
Coming from New Street train station: Take the 'Bullring' exit and from opposite side of the road/station you can take bus X64, 61 or 63 (the stop is by the Boots store) and get off opposite McDonald's on Bristol Street (it is about 5-6 min/5-6 bus stations away - price is £2.20 for a ticket - you need to have the right change).
Alternatively, from New Street station you can take an uber/minicab - it would cost you around £5-£6 or call us and we'll pick you up for a fiver. (subject to availability) Please make the cab driver aware that it is next to the McDonald's on Bristol Road and they can use the post code B15 2GA instead of B15 2GJ as sometimes it doesn't show in their GPS/Navigation system as our's is a new development. The apartment is next to Oasis academy also known as 'Woodview Primary school', this can be used to reach the right address as some taxi drivers are not aware of the new developments.
You can also walk to the apartment, it takes approx. 20-22 minutes. If you decide to walk, the easiest way is to take the 'Bullring' exit from the train station/grand central, take right (you would see TK Maxx on your right) and walk straight until you reach a roundabout (you would see a big green building on your right)~(horsefair subway) from there you need to take the first exit toward Bristol road and carry on walking for 10-15 min, you will see a McDonald's on the right hand side (by the big traffic lights), Cross the road and come by McDonald's parking, from McDonald's parking you need to take a right towards Springmeadow Road and after walking for a minute you will see a new development called 'The Edg' and that is where you need to come in. (The apartment is next to Oasis academy also known as 'Woodview Primary school in case you don't find it)
We are situated in the 5th building where it says 'Apartment 29 - 39', just ring the intercom or call us.
If you get stuck anywhere along the route, please either call me () or my wife Iulia () and we will try and guide you in the best possible way.
Safe Travels :)
