Stayed here for the weekend and just wanted somewhere in a good location to rest at between shopping, restaurants, bars and clubs. This was perfect. The room was small but perfectly formed. I opted for an upgraded room with a window and I'm glad I did. I've stayed at Nite-Nite up the road before which didn't have that option and it did feel weird not knowing the time of day/weather until you got up and went out. The quality of the fixtures and fittings meant I didn't feel like I was in a budget hotel. The design meant we didn't feel claustrophobic and the staff were warm and welcoming. Only drawback was that I wasn't told that 'late checkout' at a cost of £20 meant that I had to leave at 1:30pm so I was a bit put out to be told that on return to the hotel at 4:30pm! But to their credit, a big deal was not made of the issue and I was ready to leave anyway so no harm done.
Bed was comfy, bathroom/shower great. Just wish there was underfloor heating as the bathroom floor stayed wet after being used.
I'll be back, and look forward to the new 'long stay' apartment rooms being available :-)
- 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
