They try to pass this off as a trendy Japanese style hotel, but that's just code for the rooms being tiny, claustrophobic boxes. I felt I had to keep the air conditioning on high because it was keeping me alive like an iron lung. The blind over a pretend window (actually a wall) just made it worse. A truly upsetting...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 March 2017 via mobile

Great location, room was very small but had everything you need to be fair with excellent bed. Shower was a wet room, but once you got used to it, it was fine and you could get a great shower. Better than some hotels where you have to shower in a bath. No breakfast available, but not a problem with several...

Dear Martyn F, Thank you for such a positive and well-thought-out review. I'm so pleased BLOC offered everything you wanted and the bed and shower were both excellent- two of our trademarks!

I stopped here on business recently. The hotel is modern and quite stylish looking, the staff are helpful and the location is great. There is no parking at the hotel and you will need to use one of the dubious looking P&D carparks in the area. The rooms are small and the one I had did not have a TV...

Stayed on business visit to Brum. Quiet neighbourhood, perfectly positioned (Jewellery Quarter) to get your head down. Previous Bloc user do knew what to expect in terms of accommodation which ticked the box. Will use again.

Hotel is situated in a quiet neighbourhood and a short walk from the city centre. Offers good value and check in was straightforward. We expected the room to be small, but probably was smaller than we anticipated. There is no space to put things away (e.g. drawers/wardrobe) and this would most likely be a problem if you were staying any...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Room was very small and windows did not open. Decor was nice but basic. Room was cleaned and in tidy. Good price but very small and cramped conditions. Would be more suitable for one person not two!

Dear Catriona Thank you for having chosen to stay with us for two nights at BLOC Hotel Birmingham.

We stayed here for a night and found the hotel was a bit or a walk away from Center Birmingham! Resulted in getting taxis back as appose to walking!

I had a very comfortable room overlooking Caroline Street - I paid £5 extra for a window, because I've learned from staying at NiteNite that I just won't sleep otherwise. Lovely bed, wetroom with drench shower, and extraordinarily good location. A nice touch is that they give you discount vouchers for lots of brilliant bars and restaurants nearby, including the...

We booked the Bloc hotel completely by chance as it was a good deal cheaper than the usual "budget brands". We stayed in a Vista room which was small but has everything you need! The bed was incredibly comfy and the free wifi is fast. The wet room is a bit surreal with one mirrored wall but all modern and...

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
