The location was great for the short weekend trip over from Dublin! Very near to lots of restaurants, pubs, bars etc and 15 mins from the main shops! It was Small room but I would definitely recommend for a couple! Very clean but no wardrobe space!

We stayed here on a weekday night to go to a gig at the o2 Academy. I paid £5 extra to have a window in the room. Whilst the view wasn't great, it was nice to have natural light! Cute little room with a huge double bed, built in tv and space-saving wet-room, it had everything we needed. It might... More

It did what we needed it to do, a base for us to meet with friends to celebrate a birthday. They were kind enough to let us meet and drink in reception as there is no hotel bar or refreshment facilities (aside from vending machines) The rooms were very small. The bed was a reasonable size but literally fit the... More

There are no facilities at the hotel but check in was quick and easy. Rooms are modern but very small which we were aware of when booked. Anyway for one night it was fine and cosy (some would find claustrophobic with no window) bathroom is ridiculously small but the monsoon shower is amazing! Handy for city centre and St. Paul's...

Stayed here on business when I was working in the jewellery qtr. Within walking distance so pleased with that. Good for business stays as rooms are small. Rooms have every thing you need. Showers are amazing monsoon although very close to toilet in wet room style bathroom. Great hotel for short stays.

This is the first time I have stayed in a Bloc hotel and it was a pleasant experience but certainly different from any other hotel I have stayed in. The hotel is in a quiet area just on the outskirts of the jewellery quarter and just up the street from St Pauls Square. My room (318) was very small with... More

I'm sorry to hear that your key did not work on the first attempt to enter the bedroom. Should you stay again at BLOC Birmingham please be aware that there are phones situated by the lifts, so if you need reception you can call them and they could have come to you. It's a little bit of late information to... More

Having stayed in Bloc Gatwick before, after noticing there was one in Birmingham, I immediately cancelled my reservation at the Travelodge and booked here! Hotel is located in the jewellery quarter of Birmingham. Very nice looking from outside. The reception area is good and the gent on reception was extremely friendly too. Room was exactly as presented in pictures online.... More

If you've never stayed, look at the website carefully as this is not your average hotel room in any way, shape or form. Perfectly formed for an overnight stay with amazing quality of cotton and the shower. There is no natural light in the rooms but for sleep, work, eat, repeat its great and extremely good value. Also well placed... More

We've just had a 3 night stay here. Understanding the concept of the hotel when we booked, I was expecting minimalistic. Once I got past the size of the room (it is very compact) I did start to enjoy my stay. The room is very clean and fresh decent towels changed every day. The wet room worked well, our bedroom...

I've stayed here a lot, and I've written reviews before - that weren't particularly positive - but I have to say it's growing on me. In part to wonderful staff like Paulina - she is nothing short of excellent. Helpful, friendly, polite and remembers the little things. I've never faulted the fittings, the bed is comfy, the rainfall shower is... More
