Staed at The Block for one (Thursday) night as a last minute getaway to Liverpool. Had tried to book hotels but apparently either all full or overpriced - I would never pay more than £150 a night anywhere. So chose The Block having never done the apartment route before and no have to say I'm glad I did. Apartment offered...

We stayed at The Block, for a visit to the City for sightseeing, and football. A modern, comfortable apartment that was clean, warm and really we couldn't fault it. Right in the centre of the dock land area, and a few minutes walk into the main shopping centre, including Liverpool 1. Would definitely stay agin.

Stayed for two nights for conference at ACC. 2 double bed apartment on 4th floor. There was only one shower which was located in what looked like it used to be a cupboard in one of the bedrooms. I suppose it would be called a 'wet cupboard' due to the size- and the fact that it didn't have a door!!...

Fantastic setting right next to echo arena and albert docks. Modern and spacious but lacking a little in privacy in bedroom with no doors on bathroom. Not ideal when sharing. Apart from that perfect and very comfortable. Staff from checking in to checking out very friendly and helpful too. Will definitely be back. Group of 10 of us and they...

I stayed at The Block for two nights recently. There are a few basic things you need in a hotel: a hot shower, a TV that works and a clean room. I didnt get any of them. The showers were only very slightly warm even though the basin in the bathroom had hot water. This was a big disappointment given...

This was my second stay at The Block, it is an ideally placed venue for the Albert Dock area and a short walk to the City Centre. The apartments are comfortable and spacious, worth booking if you are staying in Liverpool for a few days.

We were in Liverpool to see Simply red at the Echo arena and just looked for accommodation as near to there as possible. Well we were not disappointed. The Block is an apartment block our room catered for 4 people, basic but really nice. It had two bedrooms with 2 single beds in each (felt it should have had 1...

We stayed here for 2 nights in a 2 bed apartment as the location next to the Arena was brilliant. Similar comments as other clients have made - ready for a refurb, cuts on Dining room chairs, strange ensuite with no door and strangely both toilets high up - my feet didn't touch the ground! Stark interior decor, but great...

Visiting the city for a conference the location was perfect, right on Alberts dock. And only a 10 minute walk from Liverpool one was also a bonus. I loved that it had a kitchen because I was able to cook. However , it was extremely overpriced for what it was. They said they did clean up every three days we...
