This is a modern pod style hotel. £45 for one of the most comfortable nights we've had in a hotel. Its a new hotel and clean and spotless. The towels were big and soft and the mattress wonderfully comfortable. No frills but you can get decent coffee and snacks from vending machines if needed. Well positioned just outside city centre between St Pauls Sq and the jewelery quarter and with secure parking nearby. And with a pass from the Bloc the 24hr charge miraculously drops from nearly £15 to just £3.50. Ideal if like us you want to do the shops the day after a night out. The bathroom 'module' is a wet room so you need to think what order to do things in and make sure the shower is pointing at the WC but quite frankly it adds to the funkiness of the hotel. Would highly recommend for a cheap yet smart quiet stay just out of the city centre but in good walking distance (about 10mins).
- 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
