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.

I stay here once a week at the moment whilst working in the City Centre and find the hotel perfect for my needs. The staff are excellent, welcoming and helpful. The beds and showers are first class. It’s only a 5 minute stroll to my office next to Snow Hill station. Plus there ar

Room small but clean, main problem was the touch screen heating control not working resulting in a terrible nights sleep. Did not offer us another room whilst we were there, but have since given refund.
I would check heating works on arrival, and if it isn’t working, ask to move

I recently stayed at BLOC hotel in Birmingham for one night. I had booked a couple of months prior and planned to stay after a concert. The hotel was extremely good value for money - as a university student, I could not recommend BLOC more! Upon checking in I was greeted by frien

Overall a plesent stay at the Bloc hotel. I wouldnt return unfortunatly due to there being no restaurant or breakfast facilities. And the room we stayed in had a wetroom rather than a bathroom. Which once showered was a nightmare as everything and i mean EVERYTHING was wet. Sink

Dear Ashleigh I'm pleased to see from your review that you had a lovely, comfortable night at BLOC and that you enjoyed the German Christmas market. One of the things that wasn't successful as far as you were concerned was the wet-room. We're aware that not everyone likes the whole concept, so when we were designing our recent extension with the new Apartment rooms, we configured them differently so that the shower is separated off from the toilet and other facilities; it sounds as if this would have been the room type that would suit you best. Although we don't have our own restaurant facilities and bar, St Paul's is a great area to eat and drink and the Reception team will always be happy to guide you towards those places that we've heard good things about. As you discovered, it's an easy walk into the town centre if you don't want to use public transport which is also very accessible. If you do want to return to BLOC in the future you will, of course, be most welcome. With best wishes Sarah O.

Stayed here as my partner, another couple and I had booked to go to The Jam House to see a band (Subterraneans, who are amazing.)
We had a room with no window, by choice as it was cheaper. The room was very clean, bed very comfy and there was a hairdryer. The bathroom is a wet ro

I'm so pleased to see your review and that you were more than happy with everything about your stay here at BLOC. Whilst the rooms with no windows are our most budget-conscious rooms, for only £5 more you can book a room with a window. We also have more spacious Vista Plus and Apartment rooms should you be staying for a little longer and be wanting more of a home from home. The new Apartment rooms also have a separated off shower so the toilet in the wet-room won't get wet. It's fantastic to see that the lovely staff team made a such a good impression and that BLOC was 'great value for money, modern, clean and good for short stays'. I hope that next time you're seeing a band at The Jam House you'll be back to stay with us at BLOC Hotel Birmingham again. With best wishes Sarah O.

Any idea of approximate taxi cost to the Hawthorns?
Any idea of approximate taxi cost to the Hawthorns?
no sorry but we used a taxi the hotel recommended to go 4 mile and it cost us £10.. shop around before you book would be my advice 😁

"we had room 312, which was decent"
"No views from either room, but may have been luck of the draw that we got no views!"
"Better rooms on the higher floors."
"Pay extra for a window."
"for an extra £20ish, the apartment is well worth the money."
