Overview

When it comes to staying in a city hotel there are a couple of ways to go. Either you choose budget or boutique. You know what you're getting with both. But that probably means you've made a compromise somewhere along the way. Good news, there is another way. It's absolutely possible to get luxury on a budget. You just need to apply a little creative thinking. Hotel adapted building techniques and technology from around the globe, including Japan, where it's common for hotel rooms to be built off site then stacked and wrapped to compliment their environment. Hotel have brought some of that wisdom to the UK so that building a Bloc takes less than half the time of a traditionally built hotel. That's not all. Hotel commissioned some studies to ask guests exactly what they want. One of the findings was that during short stays guests don't normally unpack their bags, removing the need for excessive storage facilities and desk space. They also told hotel that they prefer not to eat in budget hotels, so hotel build Blocs close to nice restaurants and bars so that they're easy for guests to access them. All of this means significant savings. Savings hotel can pass on, giving you the things you really want from your stay with the hotel. Things like really powerful drench showers, super fast Wi-Fi, luxury linen, state-of-the-art flat screen HD LED TVs, plus fresh locally sourced pastries and Nespresso coffee from self-serve machines. Don't just take the word for it. Hotel called on some expert help from a Scandinavian sleep institute, to help determine exactly what temperature is right for the perfect night's sleep (18 to 20 degrees is the accepted optimum temperature with 40% humidity). The air conditioning technology ensures the environment is just right at all times. Use of specialist sound insulation and noise reduction materials, along with luxurious cotton sheets make the rooms extremely comfortable spaces to be in. There's an Italian tiled wet room and drench shower, which allows perfect temperature control and a water pressure way in excess of industry standards. Then there's your connection to the world outside. Hotel fitted super-fast Wi-Fi, and the latest 32inch inch HD LED flat screen TVs. Let's not forget the bed. Every room has a top of the range king size double mattress with pocket spring geometry. Hotel made it easy to store your luggage underneath as well, with some clever space-saving design. Your sleep haven is then finished off with some multi layered Artemide ambient lighting, ensuring that your stay is a relaxing, comfortable and memorable experience.

Would recommend Sat, Sep 5, 2015
A cosy nice clean room. Stayed 1 night just me and my husband. Modern shower. Could do with tea and coffee facilities in the room but apart from that it was perfect for us

Different concept, good hotel

Would recommend Sat, Jul 11, 2015
Having read good reviews, I booked this hotel for one night and stayed with my daughter. Good location, very clean, helpful reception staff and free street parking over night if you can find a space. Only niggle is that room is quite dark without window, and all mirrors are brown tinted. I love to wear makeups so it was quite difficult to apply eyshadow ect. But the most important factor to choose hotel for me is cleanliness so I would stay again.

Great to be close to uni for exams

Would recommend Sat, Jun 6, 2015
Needed to be close to uni for exams. Received a room that reeked of smoke, spoke to front desk (a very friendly male) and was immediately relocated. Did not like the bathroom setup, but was prepared for it. Room very clean. All in all I would stay again for future exams.

What a find

Would recommend Thu, May 28, 2015
Sometimes it pays off to have a look away from the big brand names that everyone knows - this was a great find! Good price, lovely area just a short walk from the city centre, and everything I needed during my stay.

Always great

Would recommend Thu, May 28, 2015
This was my second stay in Bloc and it did not fail to impress again - great price, plenty of space even in a smaller room and a lovely area. Managed to wander around the Jewellery Quarter this time and it's a lovely area with lots of interesting pubs, bars and restaurants.

Cool place!

Would recommend Mon, Jul 22, 2013
Would recommend this to someone looking for a good place and a nice little room. Bed was very cpmforbale, air con was great. Nice little wet room to get showered in. Only downside for me was that my room didn't have a window. I'd suggest calling the hotel and requesting a room with a window; other than that I'd definitely come back! :)
