We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting the gadget show at the nec. On arrival we were greated by a lovely girl on reception. Very friendly and helpful (as were all the staff during our stay). She gave us individual passwords so both our phones and laptop were linked on to the Wifi and we were able to check... More

I stayed in this hotel as I was watching a show at the nearby NIA Arena (about 10 min walk) which is very handy. The hotel on the whole was very good; clean, comfy, stylish. Perfect for a night. I liked it so much I planned to stay a few more times during the coming year as I have shows... More

I booked this hotel as I wanted something different for a surprise anniversary trip for my partner and didn't want a run of the mill travel lodge etc. The hotel itself is located in Birmingham's jewellery quarter which is about a 15 minute walk from the centre of the city and worth it as it's outside all the hustle and...

We chose to stay in Bloc for two nights and really enjoyed it. We'd actually been a couple of years before and were impressed then so knew we'd be coming back. The rooms are clean, simple and compact. The bathroom is pretty small and its worth leaving just about everything (towel, other toiletries, wash bag) in the bedroom when you... More

I enjoyed the simplicity of the room, and slept well. If you just want a bed, and not all the extras that don't need to pay for, then this is ideal. Pros - Comfy linnen and bed - Friendly staff - Clean, modern - Good value for city centre location - Pretty central location, depending where you need to get... More

Great room layout, comfortable bed and great shower. The wi-fi was non existent and the air con didn't work but for the price and location it is worth trying this place. A short walk into central Birmingham and plenty of nice restaurants just around the corner.

Not a great stay overall - two things really bothered me. 1) The windows don't open. I realise this is becoming quite common in newly-built hotels and I've no idea how this has come to be acceptable. So the first room I was allocated smelled bad and felt really stuffy. The receptionist was helpful and was able to get me... More

Enjoyed the experience, apparently it's the "pared down chic" concept- I'm not sure what that is, but I liked it. Good night's sleep. Great shower. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Did not like the tiny simplified TV controller - not a big deal. Would have liked tea/coffee in room but I have read BLOC's comments on this. Flying from Gatwick... More

Myself and a friend decided to go with this hotel for the Men's Roller Derby World Cup in March. It was perfect for an event such as this (out all day, only coming back to sleep) as it was little hassle to come in and out and the room was small, but affordable and really good quality for what you...

Just ignore his review he's professionally miserable I like bloc But then again I'm easily pleased I like it for it's no frills but attention to detail attitude. Clever business strategy (if deliberate?) based on assumption that many travellers business or pleasure don't want to eat in their hotel, and locating in an area with an abundance of nearby eateries...

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
