Stayed on business visit to Brum. Quiet neighbourhood, perfectly positioned (Jewellery Quarter) to get your head down. Previous Bloc user do knew what to expect in terms of accommodation which ticked the box. Will use again.
Hotel is situated in a quiet neighbourhood and a short walk from the city centre. Offers good value and check in was straightforward. We expected the room to be small, but probably was smaller than we anticipated. There is no space to put things away (e.g. drawers/wardrobe) and this would most likely be a problem if you were staying any longer than one night.
Stayed here for 2 nights. Room was very small and windows did not open. Decor was nice but basic. Room was cleaned and in tidy. Good price but very small and cramped conditions. Would be more suitable for one person not two!
We stayed here for a night and found the hotel was a bit or a walk away from Center Birmingham! Resulted in getting taxis back as appose to walking! I like the idea however the rooms were literally so small and and poorly lighted. This was not good for getting ready in!When showering the whole bathroom including the toilet gets soaked! The beds were very comfy and the staff were extremely accommodating!
I had a very comfortable room overlooking Caroline Street - I paid £5 extra for a window, because I've learned from staying at NiteNite that I just won't sleep otherwise. Lovely bed, wetroom with drench shower, and extraordinarily good location. A nice touch is that they give you discount vouchers for lots of brilliant bars and restaurants nearby, including the upmarket Lasan. The room really was as small as you can possibly imagine, though, and there's no kettle (I think you can buy tea and coffee from a machine). So if you're a caffeine-addicted claustrophobic, it's not for you.
We booked the Bloc hotel completely by chance as it was a good deal cheaper than the usual "budget brands". We stayed in a Vista room which was small but has everything you need! The bed was incredibly comfy and the free wifi is fast. The wet room is a bit surreal with one mirrored wall but all modern and clean, with a brilliant monsoon shower! On arrival the staff were really helpful and friendly, pointing out parking (a deal with the NCP 2 minutes walk away) and a discount booklet for local restaurants. Only downside would be the fact the window doesn't open, and I usually like a fresh air breeze but the air con partially made up for this. Would recommend and stay again!
Just left this excellent hotel. We booked the apartment room. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff , who offered us complementary extra hour for check out. In regards to the room it was very well thought out , it was well equipped with a kitchenette and a comfy setting area. The bedroom was spacious and the shower was amazing . Overall considering we booked over the Easter weekend it was well priced and the noise levels were bearable. Will defiantly book again.
We stayed for 2 nights whilst in Birmingham for a convention. We arrived slightly earlier than the check in time but we were told we could check in early as there was rooms available, everyone on reception was really lovely and helpful. First impressions of the room were great, we paid extra for a room with a window which was definitely a wise investment, not much of a view but made the room a lot lighter. The room it's self is advertised as small so was expecting something tiny, but we were pleasantly surprised as it was bigger than we expected. The bed was huge and very comfy, with a tv integrated into the wall at the end of it. There was a bedside table and also a little stool underneath if needed. The bathroom is a wet room so don't keep anything in there that you don't want to get wet! The shower was lovely, there is one that comes from the ceiling and feels like a waterfall and the other is a hand held one, both were plenty hot enough and had lots of power to them, also the controls were easy to use! The rooms are meant to be soundproofed but we felt we could hear quite a lot from the rooms on either side, this didn't stop us sleeping though, only waking us up every now and again. All in all 10/10 would definitely recommend, and will 100% stay again!
Really warm friendly welcome at reception on arrival, very helpful and great fun Rooms are of a style as anyone who has been to a Bloc hotel before, no windows, large double bed occupying the far end of the room TV at the foot end, plenty of pillows Hooks for ya shirt, coats, etc Cubical type washroom, with toilet and sink..the shower is hooked on the wall and is the type that you unhook and hand hold Good wifi in the rooms and reception Handy location for a selection of pubs, about a 20 min walk down hill and across a main road (via the bridge walkway) to the shops On street parking between 6 pm and 8 am or there is a car park round the back with pay and display Vending machine in reception for snacks
If you're scared of the dark then this is the hotel for you. I say this because I found it impossible to make my room dark, even using my luggage and questions to block out the light from the light above the sink (see photo below). And the light in the walkway outside the room windows was so bright that he came round the blinds (also in photo below). And the room designer had thoughtfully put a strip of purple LEDs above the blind to bath the room in BLOC purple. Thoughtful. The room itself was clean and modern and well appointed if a little spartan. I'm 5 foot 10 and found the beds a bit short. Funnily, my chambermaid was a bit enthusiastic and tucked in the sheets so tight that it was impossible to move until the sheets had loosened up a bit! TV choices were very limited - only a handful of options on the Freeview type plan - pity as I wanted to watch a movie at 8pm. I would use them again as there are bit more exciting than anything else in the same price bracket but my expectations will just be a little bit lower.
