Probably the worst nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel! The sound proofing between rooms ( and we had the higher price vista plus ) is so poor that we could hear next doors conversation all night , I now know all about her family and her medical problems despite the chap further down the corridor (!) knocking...

When we arrived the front door was broken. It should have been automatic but you had to push it and it was quite a heavy door. Reported it to the two chaps on reception but was met with "yea we know " have to say there was no warmth to our welcome. Found this hotel on the whole to be... More

Dear loandstar59, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at BLOC Gatwick. You're absolutely right - first impressions do matter. I am genuinely very disappointed to read that you felt the atmosphere at the hotel to be "unwelcoming". This is totally unacceptable and I will be speaking to the team to find out... More

It is very basic, the room was tiny and shower and toilet was just a very small wet room and when I went to use the toilet got wet socks as the floor was wet and the floor in the room is very hard, so you need something on your feet to keep your feet warm! No tea or coffee... More

Dear Mark Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at BLOC Hotel Birmingham.

We really liked the room and would stay here again. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the shower was amazing. The room was exactly as represented in photos and the size was as expected; small and cosy! The only negative was some noise from other guests closing doors, however this can't be helped and is more down to inconsiderate guests... More

The hotel is in the City Centre near St Paul's Square. It does what is says on the tin: it is functional, cheap, high specification. TV is good, shower is good, there is no space to hang anything up. Comfortable bed and quiet. You can see into the shower/ toilet from the room- there is frosting around the middle of... More

Had a lovely one night stay here. We were upgraded to an apartment and it was very spacious. Including a microwave, fridge, some cutlery and tea and coffee supplies. Shower is amazing. The touch screen pad to control lights, a/c and even check out was very handy.

The rooms are definitely compact and bijou but if you are just needing a bed an en-suite they are perfect; no window and no need for one either. My only complaint was the noisy plumbing but this may only affect #215? I will be back to try another room!

Perfect little room for a weekend stay. Small as indicated by the hotel, but didn't need anything else. Comfy large bed. Lovely waterfall shower. Great offers for local eateries. Lovely design throughout.

Myself and my boyfriend have just stayed in the hotel for the past 2 nights, first impressions were okay, however there were a lot of road works going on, which is understandably not the hotels fault. Staff seemed pleasant enough at first. Once we got to our room I was expecting a small room, however not that small, literally enough... More

We stayed for just one night while visiting the Christmas market in Birmingham. I've stayed in a similar 'pod' style hotel in Edinburgh and I'm a fan of the concept. The rooms are ideal for couples or solo travellers for a short stay if you just want a comfortable place to sleep. They are not roomy, the emphasis is on... More

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
