As a piece of modern architecture it is interesting but at the same time it is very unappealing. Just walking past the entrance gives the impression of a building rather neglected and badly in need of some renovation. I didn't see inside because of security...More

Overtime we come to Birmingham we stay in the penthouse of the Rotunda. We love the location for the shops, restaurants and the overall positioning in the city I appreciate there are negative comments to the layout and provisions provided by the Urban Splash group....More

As many other places in Birmingham, they feel secluded and not that interesting even though the actual building can be nice to look at.

This is just an example of modern architecture, built in teriibly wrong place. It is not open for public, you can use the staircase to get to the open market, it's disgustingly dirty and smelly. Just try to avoid this place if possible.
