This is the first time I have stayed in a hotel before a flight. I am not sure I would do it again. I felt like I was an extra in the film The Terminal with Tom Hanks! Although the room was quite modern and funky it was very small. We had the standard room with a window. The bed... More

stayed in BLOC before my early morning flight to mexico. Wow it really is fit for purpose with just a kingsize bed, shower wet room and a tv. but it was so modern and funky. you could control the blinds, lights and aircon/heating with a tablet on the wall and you could even check out by this. AMAZING technology! shower... More

From checking in to checking out, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Very good room and facilities. Ideal for staying the night before a flight, or arriving at an unearthly hour! Plenty of fast food options within a few hundred yards.

we chose bloc hotel only because we had an early - that is 5:55 - flight. It was perfectly organised, of modern design and we also had a nice view of the airfield. the rooms are small but really smart. the bed was spacious and with a good quality mattress. You can control all elements of your stay through a... More

Flying from Gatwick early the next morning then the Bloc Hotel is an option at an affordable price for an airport hotel. Each room is a cube with no windows with a comfortable double bed which is also the width of the room. The bathroom is small but with all appropriate amenities and once you overcome the thought of standing... More

Perfect location for overnight stay before flight. Famility of 5 accommodated across 2 rooms, which whilst small suited us perfectly. Rooms are compact so not much room for luggage, so check in night before if you can. Quiet and comfortable and well placed for restaurants etc. Package included weeks valet parking and security fast pass , which made the experience... More

Stayed one night in the BLOC hotel at Gatwick prior to a early morning flight. The room was small but very clean and and the bed was comfortable. Best of all though was the location - able to check out in the early hours of the morning directly from the room, into the lift then straight into passport control. Combined... More

Spent one night at the Bloc - it was perfectly functional, but beware, when people say the rooms are small they are NOT kidding. Full size bed takes up about 60% of the available space in the room. There's a nice wide desk area, plenty of power outlets, and good lighting, but you are not relaxing in there - it's... More

This hotel was a godsend for us, being on site within the terminal. We got a text from Virgin the night saying that our flight was delayed by 2 hours, so we simply pushed back the alarm! Could not have done that elsewhere, would have been dealing with buses or parking! The rooms are very small, almost like ship cabins,... More
