Hotel is really few minutes by bus to Bullring Mall. Many local buses X1 X2 17 60. You can not wait more than 5-6 minutes. Use Mticket app and buy very cheap group card. X1 links the airport, hotel and the center of the city. Next to hotel 24h McDonalds with many options and menues. During our stay we jumped to London - 1.30h min by Virgin Trains. The train station is next to Bullring Mall, so it is really convenient. Regarding the hotel - everything was superb - rooms are fresh, comfy, recently fully refurbished, VERY extremely clean, the breakfast is good - beacon, sausages, baked bean, egs, quality butter, bio yogurt, different types of bread, fruits. Of course this is IBIS hotel and you can not expect change of breakfast items every day, so the breakfast is copy/paste every day, so the third day you are bored to eat the same. The staff is smiling and helpful. After 22.30-23.00 the main entrance is closed by electric fence, so no cars and people are allowed if not hotel guests - which is really good and you can sleep sure nothing will happen with your car or hotel itself. One great surprise for pet lovers is the cat Pete - black&white with green eyes who is always around the hotel and MacDonalds and you your kids will be amazed by him!
