You might think a room without windows would be unpleasant, but the ventilation Is good, and the complete darkness is great for sleeping. I agree with one other review that the soundproofing isn't wonderful, so take your earplugs. We were offered an upgrade for one member of the group for £15, and it was nice to have a bigger room in which to congregate. Of course, the lobby can be used for this.
Excellent staff, nice facilities and value for money. Location perfect and pretty much no complaints. Well definitely give it a return visit, as well as recommend it for business trips with no fuss. An 8 rating; my opinion
Had such a lovely stay at BLOC. I had never heard of it before, we booked last minute for a brilliant cost! We parked at the car park behind, you do have to pay additional but it wasn't too expensive. The room is beautiful and we love how cosy it felt. Free bottles of water in the room & the shower was luxury. Will definitely be back again but this time in the apartment room. Thank you for a brilliant stay, the staff member at the front desk was really lovely too!
Dirty carpet in public areas. 1st room next to noisy A/C unit. Changed to another room where the windows wouldn't open. I had asked for a room with opening windows (1st one did though) Touch screen lights and A/C not working at all. Staff not helpful. Not central No won't return here. Just not a nice place.
Whilst the staff were great and the room was perfect for what we needed (we stayed in a no window standard double) the noise of people coming in from nights out was ridiculous and kept us both awake all night.
I really liked this hotel. It is good quality and a great price. The staff were friendly and the room was very clean. The fancy room control system wasn't working so we couldn't turn off the lights or the air con. The staff turned it off for us. We stayed for one night. If it was for longer we would had to have moved to one with a working system. We looked out on a derelict building with broken glass. Next time I would want a higher room. We will definitely be back to this hotel.
My colleague and I stayed here for one night having booked in Laterooms. It is very easy to find with private parking directly behind - something like £10 for 24 hours. The lobby has several comfy chairs, free wi-Fi and magazines. Sadly there is not a bar. The hotel has a fresh, new decor feel. There is a lift. The rooms are not the biggest, but clean comfortable and straightforward. A good fun experience and would stay again
A lovely modern Hotel to stay in very clean and beds are comfortable. Only a 5 minute walk from Barclay card arena and the canal. Still work being done on it but nothing to worry about. Only problem we had was being woken up at 8:30am by the cleaners when our time to leave was 11am was not happy about that, but apart from that me and my partner had a lovely stay.
Stayed at the Bloc for 1 night following an evening out in Birmingham. It had been recommended by a friend and initially wasn't sure what to expect, however was pleasantly surprised. Small rooms but perfectly formed and the best nights sleep I've had in ages. Very comfortable bed and great rain shower in wet room. Perhaps a little too dimly lit for my liking and found it difficult in the morning to get enough light for hair drying and makeup. A few small stains on our floor too. All in all though, I would stay again for a one nighter. Staff also friendly at reception and hotel in a convenient location for the city centre, only a short walk into town.
Firstly, I have visited a variety of different hotels in the past and I was genuinely excited by the images I saw on the website when I originally booked my Apart Room with Bloc Hotel Birmingham. However, upon arrival I was greeted by two, very unprofessional and rude receptionists, which are among some of the worst I have ever experienced. When I arrived at my room and had a look around I was appalled at how dirty it was left, the kitchen sink was dirty and had bits of food in it, the table had dirt marks on it, the bathroom floor was covered in small hairs (which I believe to have been pubic hair), and almost all of the mirrors had fingerprints and liquid marks on them. I cleaned up this up myself, as I’ve learnt from previous experience that most budget hotels will just deny your claims and say you are nit-picking. On the second night of my stay I was kept awake by the sound and vibrations of people engaging in sexual activities in the room next door. This happened again on the 6th night of my stay, which is when I decided to check out of the hotel early the following morning as I was extremely frustrated with the quality of this accommodation. Other issues I experienced are; the view from the window was of a smashed window of a seemingly abandoned building, housekeeping staff ignored do not disturb signs, and the floor had disgusting stains throughout. I would definitely not recommend this hotel for the reasons stated above and I am very disappointed with the service I received.
