Basic Hotel. When I arrived at reception to check in I was told that I had booked a standard room without a window. The receptionist then changed me to another room. Being a hotel receptionist myself I think guests could be worried about that. Maybe for safety reasons. Also no telephone in the room so if there was an emergency... More

The rooms are extremely nice and modern and are not overly big in size, the shower is brilliant and shower sex even better. It was a great stay. I dont tend to write reviews, so thats saying something.

The decor was beautiful, however I proper need a window. I didn't realise how much I needed a window. The wet room was ok, just not sure if I'm comfortable with showering literally next to a toilet. Otherwise the staff were very friendly and professional.

Thank you for writing your review. Should you stay again, maybe you would like to reserve a room with a window if you would prefer it as some rooms are with window at Birmingham and some rooms are without. I will pass on your kind comments to the team. More

My partner and I stayed here for 1 night before a show at the NEC. Clean, small but it does clearly show that on the website so was fine for us. Comfy soft beds, gorgeous shower. I must say the lights need to be better, my makeup was all over the place! 15 minute walk to the train station we... More

Compact - too small ! Room is 2m wide - the length of a bed, no storage other then I shelf next to bed & 3 coat hooks, ok for overnight stay, wet room/toilet, sink combo, bit of a trek to get to city centre on foot. No breakfast, coffee shops around but not open until 9am so if you... More

Thank you for your review. The hotel bedrooms are 10.8sqm in size and allow for luggage to be stored under the bed. BLOC Birmingham is a room only hotel and does not have any food and beverage offerings within, only vending machines. Monday to Friday, you can purchase a breakfast to go from reception which costs £5.50 per person. The... More

Stayed at Bloc Birmingham with the family last Saturday night. I love the concept...small but perfectly formed. Other significantly more expensive "established" hotels should take note of the quality and styling of the fixtures and finishes! Being an architectural designer I guess I have a particular interest, but our teenage kids thought it was "pretty cool" too! Location is convenient... More

I should point out that I would award this hotel a better rating had we not been in this particular room. You'll notice (if you visit) that the hotel has a pretty cool front door. That is until you try and sleep in the room directly above it... When the door slides open, it's similar to sleeping above an earthquake.... More

Thank you for your constructive review. I'm sorry to hear your stay was disturbed. Your comments have been passed onto the General Manager so as this can be investigated further. Thank you for detailing the room number as more often than not people do not mention the room number or date of their stay so things like this can be... More

You get a bed, very comfortable. A shower, impressive. A TV. What more do you want for a night at this price. I was impressed. Yes I had a window, but I asked for a room with a window and paid a little more. Fantastic place. Loved it.

Perfect for a quick stopover. The room was small, but nicely decorated, comfortable bed, good shower, and all perfectly clean. Good aircon. Reception were helpful. Great value for a short stopover. Handy for local restaurants and bars.

It makes perfect sense to stop at BLOC Hotel if you have a night out at the Jam House as it's 2 minutes walk away from the hotel. We find a lot of people do this. Thank you for your review. More

Pitiful breakfast, no true free parking, tiny room but innovative. Bed is width of room. I was in room 216, "window" view. Cube of soap. Toiletries fine. Close to snow hill. Reduced parking a few mins walk away.

Thank you for your review. The breakfast option is currently under review by the General Manager. Free parking is available in the pay and display spaces on the road from 6pm-8am then it is metered. The parking is free on the road all day Sunday. Guests do get a discounted rate at the local NCP at a cost of £5.50... More
