I had a pleasant stay at the bloc hotel. I liked the quirkiness of the rooms and how the bathrooms is in with the bedroom but just separated with frosted glass. The shower was lovely although the floor does get soaking wet so don't leave your dry clothes lying around. Don't expect a big room, ideally it's for one person... More

The hotel was lovely and clean and a great price for the modern look of it. However, that being said....I feel as though it lacked some basic essentials....such as...a toilet scrub, glasses for drinking water or somewhere to drink water for that matter. Moreover, the lack of windows made us feel a but claustrophobic...however with their clever lighting they managed... More

Bloc are offering excellent value for money. The location of the hotel is great for exploring both the Jewellery Quarter and City Centre and my room was comfy enough. It was windowless and only big enough for the bed and a tiny wet room bathroom but this is exactly as described in their adverts and suited my needs perfectly. I... More

Good hotel, great value, compact,bijou call it what you like, comfy bed, nice wet room, flat screen, good lighting. Probably not for those who want lots of room with a wardrobe. Pretty much say's it all. Would stay again.

Location Central, in the attractive Jewellery Quarter, 10 minutes fast walk from New Street and Snow Hill stations. Taxi recommended from stations if travelling with large amount of luggage or very late or early, part of the access routes are quite isolated and include steps. Accessibility Level access to Reception. Ground floor rooms available but via small number of steps.... More

Yes, hotel is tiny but perfect for overnight stays. Bed very comfortable, shower excellent, good temperature control in room. All for a decent price. Only downside was that you can hear next room's noises, so walls maybe a bit thin. Nevertheless , would definitely stay here again.

The hotel room was clean and modern. We stayed here whilst in Birmingham at Wireless Festival, the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are tiny, the bathroom has clear glass which is fine until you need more than a wee.....! There are no facilities for tea coffee and no where to hang clothes. The hotel was fine for us...

Perfect for a one night stay and in a superb location for sophisticated bars and eateries. Whilst not a huge room it was was exceptionally clean, comfy bed and nice rain shower. At the price I wouldn't consider anywhere else now...

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
