I was a bit apprehensive wen the only room left was window less as it sounds a little unusual, but the description of the room sold it to us and as it was only one night we thought we'd give it a shot. As we walked in we were both amazed the feel of the room as u walked in... More

Such a lovely review to read. Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. To some people the sound of staying in a room with no window is terrifying so hopefully by others reading this it will give people a good idea of what it is like. Once people stay in a Standard room, they love... More

we had a very good one night stay in Bloc in Birmingham. It's near the jewellery quarter and surrounded by really nice parts of the city. We were going to the nearby Jam House club so wanted somewhere conveniently close, it was also a good price. It was also only a quick 15 minute walk to the main city centre,... More

Was put in windowless room 305 first. Disgusting tiny little box with no window. Paid EXTRA £5pn to move to Room 319 on 3rd floor which had window. Could hear ALL conversations of people down on street, traffic might as well have been INSIDE the room it was so loud. Never slept one wink. No way 2 people could possibly... More

I am a returning customer at Bloc hotel, stayed here last week. Unfortunately it was the worst stay ever! House keeping decided to knock on my door before 11am checkout time and woke us up, very unprofessional lady, was shouting rather than informing checkout at 11am. We then decided to checkout later which I paid for at the reception, being... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Your comments will be followed up with the Housekeeping Department and investigated. It would be useful to know which room number you stayed in and the date you checked out. We can also check the CCTV once we have this information. May I apologise once again and hopefully once we...

This is a very beautiful hotel but the rooms are soooo small, I felt like I was in a prison cell and we had the window so god knows what the rooms like without a window. Very disappointed with the No tea and coffee making facilities in the room! I mean what hotel doesn't provide this? There is a hot... More

I like well-designed use of small spaces. But this place was awful & seemed designed to trick people by looking slick. There is no window but there is a blind which gives an impression of having a window. The airconditioning is poor, so the room feels airless. The bed is enormous, so the floor space is miniscule - just enough... More

Staff: Staff were lovely and friendly, cleaners were nice to and respected your privacy. Location: Close to the city centre, it's just a 5 minute walk away over the bridge and up the road etc :) Great hotel if you're in Birmingham for a night out to.

I was a bit wary on booking this hotel....hotel without a window? What's that all about? It has very good reviews so I booked it to try it. Small, compact room that makes the absolute best of its space. Suitcase fitted right under the bed allows you more room. The longest bed I have ever seen with a state of... More

Great location in the new place to be in Birmingham, Jewellery Quarter, and easy to commute and walk to the City Centre from here. Room was ok in size, bed was main attraction but TV in great location at the foot of the bed. View also great. Bed is super comfortable and I didn't want to leave. Only thing that... More

I stayed here while meeting friends nearby. I really enjoyed my stay. The first thing to get over, is that the room is tiny. But really, it is just very efficient room of space. The room is really nice. The shower and the bathroom are the same room. You have to stand on the bed to close the blind. But... More

Great review thank you. The review mentions having to stand on the bed to pull the blind down. At the right side of the blind there should have been a cord that could be used to operate the blind. If this was not the case I would be delighted to know which room you stayed in so I could check... More
