“Couple Weekend Away”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Me and my partner stayed Friday and Saturday over the valentines weekend, it was such a fantastic stay.. The hotel was spotless and our room was very cosey! I didn't want to get out of bed!! I can't fault this hotel at all, the lady on reception was very helpful. The only downside is that they don't have a restaurant so we had to leave the hotel for breakfast - They only do a continential breakfast Mon-Fri also there wasn't a kettle in the rooms there was only tea and coffee making facilities in the reception which was £1. But this didn't effect our stay!! We still had a lovely time in a modern, welcoming and cosey!! We are planning to visit again - Hopefully Bloc will be opening in other cities so we can visit more places! This hotel is a must stay and I advise people to stay especially couples. Some rooms have windows others don't, you have to pay more for a room with a window - My room didn't have one but this wasn't a problem, also rooms aren't big there very compact!!
If you're looking for a big room in a hotel with loads of facilites do not stay..
I RATE THIS HOTEL 9.5/10. THANK YOU BLOC BIRMINGHAM XXXX

Stayed here back in December..... Snug, cozy, compact and minimal.
Only negative was the distance from the city centre more like a 20 minute walk rafter than the 10 minute it stated on its website....
And the toilet and shower in one.... Other than that it's a lovey contemporary hotel.

Our stay was brilliant from start to finish. Great location, use of NCP car park just 2 mins walk away £5 for 24 hours with hotel discount. The girl on reception literally couldn't do enough for us. The rooms so so clean, stylish, comfy and an amazing shower! Can not recommend enough.

Everything about this hotel is brilliant, stayed here for one night on a saturday in Feb it cost 67 pounds and for the location it's brilliant! The room was spotless, and also nice and cosy with a brilliant rain style shower! Had a really good night sleep as the beds are massive, no street noise as it's on a quiet road! Staff are friendly and polite, 100% would stay here over any bigger hotel firm, for the price and the location (map included in the room which is easy to understand) this hotel is perfect, 10/10 on all angles.

I visited the hotel for 2 evenings over a weekend. I was able to check in late as I was a fairly late arrival and the staff member on reception will still polite and smiling regardless of the hour. Any request of information I made she answered with full knowledge of the area and parking facilities. I needed help on one of the evenings to print a sheet of work for my course and the same girl printed it out for me, nothing was too much trouble. I needed a taxi and they booked one for me and got it to arrive within 2 minutes which I thought was fab! Clearly they have a contract with the firm and it's definitely a good match in service. The rooms were fine for what I needed them for, the bed was very squishy, large and very comfortable. The shower/wet room was amazing! Normally you go to a hotel and the shower can be hit or miss but not this one. The TV was positioned nicely at the bed and there were a range of channels to choose from. Only down sides were no tea facilities in the room and noisy neighbours. You can hear those in the next room and it didn't help people were using the rooms for a fun night out, so cue being woke up at daft o'clock but I didn't think this was enough to warrant marking the hotel down based on other guests behaviour. The service received massively outweighed this. The location was also perfect and tucked away nicely from the hustle & bustle of the city centre but still within walking distance.

Thank you for your review and your kind compliments on the service you received during your stay. Your comments will be passed on to the staff at the hotel.
I can only apologise on behalf of your noisey neighbours that you encounted as not everyone behaves as they should when they stay in a hotel and unfortunately it can have a negative impact on a guests stay. However what we do try and encourage is that should anyone receive any disturbances during there stay, if they make reception aware, these noisey neighbours can be spoken to.
Once again thank you for your kind comments and hopefully one day in the future you may return to Birmingham and indeed choose BLOC Hotel as your chosen accommodation.

Great review thank you. I'm sorry that you found parking annoying. I hope that this has not stopped you from returning to the hotel. There are two options that our guests have when staying at the hotel. The first being the pay and display spaces on Caroline Street. These are metered between the hours of 8am - 6pm then free after 6pm up until 8am and free all day Sunday. The second option is the NCP car park on St Pauls Square. Our guests currently get a dsicounted rate of £5.50 for 24hrs. There is ample parking in either places, it's just down to each individuals personal preference.

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
