I bought the flat when I was a postgrad student at the Birmingham College of Food, due to its convenient location.  As far as I am aware, there is nothing else in this price range with such a great location.  It was a fantastic flat to live in both when I was a student and when I was working.  It is equally suited to short-term rentals, being right in the city centre. 

The flat is available from 1st January 2012.

All the rooms are very bright, due to the large windows going the full length of one wall.

The flat is centrally heated and double glazed.

The flat is no pets and non-smoking (there is a balcony that may be used for smoking.)

I have put together this page to answer many common questions - please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to know anything else.

NB the flat has been painted since these photos were taken.

The flat is located on the third floor of a recently refurbished high-rise block.  The block features:

 - 24 hour concierge / security
 - 4 fast, large new lifts (so no waiting!)
 - excellent double glazing and sound insulation between flats

The flat is at the back of the block, so away from the main road.

Wireless internet access is available via bt / FON; there is a broadband connection.

Bathroom with bath & shower.

There is hot water on demand from a modern combi-boiler.

Parking

There is paid parking at the bottom of the building, or free parking in Great Colmore Street (see map).  If you are staying long-term and have a car, you can rent a space near to the flat for about ?5-?0 per month.  I was fine with the free parking in Colmore Street while I was living in the flat.  The flat is great for people without cars, due to its convenient location.
