Myself and my partner really enjoy this hotel. The room is so spacious for saying it is a "pod" style room. The design makes the most of the room it does have, very friendly staff and great prices. Tip is to definitely get a room with a window, also this time we asked to be on the top floor as... More

I really enjoy staying here. Despite it being a very small room I like how stylish and cosy it is. The bathroom is small but stylish plus the shower is amazing. The bed was comfy and I had a good nights sleep. I continue to be impressed by this hotel and will continue staying.

Really very good value and as a result would stay again and in other locations. Very nice building. Room small but has everything you need and not as 'pod' like as expected. Stylish design, great bed, brilliant tv. Really liked toiletries! Great air con. Not a fan of wet rooms personally and could do with black out blinds but will... More

It's so lovely to hear that you took advantage of the 'Friday Dine' deal. As the hotel does not have any food or beverage facilities we try where possible to work with the local restaurants.I hope you also took advantage of the 'Around the Bloc' guide that is in the room on arrival as that gives some great deals in...

A small, perfectly formed room and bathroom in a great location- exactly what we were looking for, and at a fantastic price! We both slept incredibly well, as the rooms are very quiet and the beds comfortable, and really enjoyed the fuss free experience of the hotel on check in and out. The bathroom is one wet room space, and... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago when visiting Stratford & Birmingham. The hotel is clean and modern. Indeed, the rooms are excellent: compact, well-equipped and stylish. In terms of location, the hotel is next to St Paul's square in the Jewellery Q. - 10 minute walk from Birmingham Snow Hill station. Recommended.

I have just got back from one night at Bloc, Caroline Street, Birmingham This hotel is a hard one to review as its rather unique in its design. I think the best way of looking at it is similar to Marmite (you will either love it or hate it). Ive got to be honest i wasn't a big fan to... More

I've never stayed anywhere before quite like Bloc. The nearest hotel for comparison that I have stayed in is one of the Yotel hotels at a UK airport. However, the rooms are slightly larger at Bloc, but you can still only get out of bed on one side and rooms with windows are available at a supplement. The ensuite was... More

Thank you for your detailed review. Something you may like to know for the future is that BLOC Birmingham will be adding to their room types 23 apart-hotel style rooms so if you prefer a larger room then please keep your eye out for when these are completed. Maybe you might be back for more than just one night. More

I've stayed at the Nite Nite hotel in Birmingham, and didn't rate it, so I was nervous about going with Bloc Birmingham as the concept is similar. However, a friend told me it was in a fantastic location and worth a try. I thought the hotel was excellent. I went for a premier room with a window. Obviously, as is... More

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
