ROOMS: As other reviews, the rooms are small but if you're staying for one night, and not really in the room for a great deal of time then it's perfect. No wardrobe or storage, towels and soap provided, no hairdryer. There was a coffee machine in the lobby so in the morning you could get your fix for a £1...

Great review, thank you. Not everyone grasps the concept of BLOC but it seems like you have and it suited you for your stay. Should you stay again please be aware that although the rooms do not have hair dryer's in them, you can ask for a hair dryer from Reception. You may also like to know that shortly, we...

Stayed in this hotel for valentines weekend. Check in was very easy and efficient. Have to say that our first impression of the room when we walked in was 'oh my god it's a cupboard with a shower' !! The rooms are very small but then we started to take a different view - the bed was huge and comfy...

I'm pleased to hear that your opinions of the room changed after you had stayed in there. A lot people think that the monsoon rain shower is amazing and comment on it. I hope you had a lovely Valentines weekend. Thank you for your review.

The location was great for the short weekend trip over from Dublin! Very near to lots of restaurants, pubs, bars etc and 15 mins from the main shops! It was Small room but I would definitely recommend for a couple! Very clean but no wardrobe space!

We stayed here on a weekday night to go to a gig at the o2 Academy. I paid £5 extra to have a window in the room. Whilst the view wasn't great, it was nice to have natural light! Cute little room with a huge double bed, built in tv and space-saving wet-room, it had everything we needed. It might...

We have a lot of people who stay at BLOC who normally attend gigs at the O2 Academy as the hotel is within walking distance to the venue. I will pass on your kind comments to the team at BLOC Birmingham. Thank you for your review.

It did what we needed it to do, a base for us to meet with friends to celebrate a birthday. They were kind enough to let us meet and drink in reception as there is no hotel bar or refreshment facilities (aside from vending machines) The rooms were very small. The bed was a reasonable size but literally fit the...

There are no facilities at the hotel but check in was quick and easy. Rooms are modern but very small which we were aware of when booked. Anyway for one night it was fine and cosy (some would find claustrophobic with no window) bathroom is ridiculously small but the monsoon shower is amazing! Handy for city centre and St. Paul's...

Stayed here on business when I was working in the jewellery qtr. Within walking distance so pleased with that. Good for business stays as rooms are small. Rooms have every thing you need. Showers are amazing monsoon although very close to toilet in wet room style bathroom. Great hotel for short stays.

This is the first time I have stayed in a Bloc hotel and it was a pleasant experience but certainly different from any other hotel I have stayed in. The hotel is in a quiet area just on the outskirts of the jewellery quarter and just up the street from St Pauls Square. My room (318) was very small with...

I'm sorry to hear that your key did not work on the first attempt to enter the bedroom. Should you stay again at BLOC Birmingham please be aware that there are phones situated by the lifts, so if you need reception you can call them and they could have come to you. It's a little bit of late information to...

Having stayed in Bloc Gatwick before, after noticing there was one in Birmingham, I immediately cancelled my reservation at the Travelodge and booked here! Hotel is located in the jewellery quarter of Birmingham. Very nice looking from outside. The reception area is good and the gent on reception was extremely friendly too. Room was exactly as presented in pictures online....

If you've never stayed, look at the website carefully as this is not your average hotel room in any way, shape or form. Perfectly formed for an overnight stay with amazing quality of cotton and the shower. There is no natural light in the rooms but for sleep, work, eat, repeat its great and extremely good value. Also well placed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bloc hotel is located in Birminghams Jewellery Quarter. The village atmosphere created by its cafes-bars and restaurants is complemented by the business-shopping-arts and sports facilities that are also on its doorstep. We have taken loose inspiration from Japanese pod style hotels which means much larger rooms more akin to a cabin on a luxury yacht with finishes and fittings to match. The rooms are equipped with a King Size Double Bed-luxurious linen-climate control-wet room with monsoon drench shower-Samsung 32inch led flat screen TV and high speed WIFI. Birmingham is of course a centrally located travel hub and for many of our visitors that will be the most important factor in just how quickly and conveniently they can access the motorway network-national rail and international flights. ... more   less
