My train was cancelled and I needed to stay one extra night in Birmingham, thus I needed a last minute and cheap solution. I chose this hotel as it costed next to nothing and was rather close to the city centre. Guys at reception desk were very nice and helpful and location was nice (in the Jewellery quarter and close to Snow Hill railway station), but I didn't feel that safe at night going back alone to the hotel after dinner, as the neighbourhood was dark and desert. My room and bathroom were really small (Japanese style), as I suppose were the other rooms, and I had no window. Food&drink vending machines are located at 1st and 3rd floor and I could not sleep very well due that I had one right next to my room and I could hear people walking and inserting coins in the machine until late at night. A very positive aspect was the wifi connection (free), which worked properly and was very fast both in rooms and in the lobby. Unconventional hotel, avoid if you're claustrophobic.
- 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
