  1. I’m glad I came across this page as I am always looking for new, quirky places to stay with my husband. I like to write about the places we visit and recently, we drove to Birmingham for a 2 night stay at Staying Cool – The Rotunda. They are incredible stylish serviced apartments in the heart of Birmingham and overlook the whole of the the town. They’re a bit bizarre as the rooms are curved to suit the shape of the building, and you can see for miles and miles across the skyline. What’s more, you can even open the balcony door at night and listen to the hustle and bustle of the city below. Would highly recommend checking them out!
