This was the first time I've been to a bloc hotel, and for £55 I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised, the overall hotel decor is lovely, the rooms are well decorated, they're small but are very modern, the bed and linen was comfortable and the overall cleanliness was fantastic, the 32 inch TV at the foot of...

Loved the room. Bed was very comfy. Shower was great! Staff were very friendly & helpful. Info on places to eat round the bloc were very helpful, especially the 'viceroy tandoori' Indian restaurant :)

Rooms were small but we were prepared for that. Stayed here for the one night, and felt that it was about the right amount of time for me as the room felt cramped at times. Had the luxury of a window, but as we were could wave to the occupants of a flat opposite we didn't really get the benefit.... More

Clean, compact room and excellent customer services. You get what you pay for and of course in a budget hotel something's got to give. Rooms have little floor space and would benefit from extra hooks for clothes, coats and towels to enable one to keep the compact space tidy. Our bathroom had no extractor, which in a windowless room seemed... More

Thank you for your review. All rooms should have a mattress protector on. I would be interested to know which room you stayed in. I will pass on your kind comments to the housekeeping team and reception team. Thank you once again. More

The room really is very small but well thought out and cosy - we felt 'cocooned'. Not one to share with some one you don't know well! Big bed and very comfortable but the piece de resistance is the shower - can honestly say it's the best shower I've ever had - worth staying for that alone. The lighting is... More

Stayed here as we were going to a concert at the Barclaycard Arena. Cannot fault it one bit. Receptionists were friendly and really helpful and the lobby is funky decor with a tea/coffee machine and a snack vendor. Continental breakfast can be ordered the night before. The room was fab. We paid for a window room and I was glad... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Staff helpful, Wi-fi excellent. Rooms a bit claustrophobic for us especially not having a window, but very handy location for family gathering locally. Comfortable bed. I would suggest the hotel gives more info about the room. Out of 5 rooms booked by our party we were the only ones who discovered the rain shower from... More

Thank you for your review. I hope you had a good catch up with your family whilst you in Birmingham. In the rooms, on the desk there are 2 leaflets. The first is 'The Around The BLOC Guide' which contains a map of the local area and discounts that can be found in local restaurants. The second leaflet is 'Welcome... More

Myself & partner stayed here for one night due to the location & price. The hotel & room were very clean & the check in desk staff very courteous. The room is very small & the bed is pushed against the wall so if you need to get up in the night you have to climb across the other person.... More

We have stayed at the Bloc Hotel on two occasions, and both times we have been impressed by the concept and style of the hotel. The pod rooms probably won't be to everybody's taste, and this time we stayed in one of the windowless rooms which, again, may not suit everybody, but we found lots to like about the rooms.... More

Ok, let me open by saying that there is nothing wrong with this hotel. It's clean and comfortable and the staff are polite and helpful! But, there's a few wrinkles that mean I might stay somewhere else next time. But if you don't mind them, then it's a great place to stay! Firstly, there's no tea making facility in the... More
