It had everything you need for an overnight stay. It was clean, nicely furnished. The only thing you couldn't get was a wake up call as there were no phones in the room. The hotel was right inside the airport. If you were departing from the South Terminal you were about a 30 second walk away. There were restaurants less...

Our stay was very enjoyable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location located in the heart...

We arrived having booked what we thought was a wheelchair access room but it was wheelchair bathroom only. The staff immediately upgraded us when they saw that my husband was in a wheel chair. The room is very modern with a walk in wet room. The room was spotless. Everything in the room operates from the touchscreen iPad in the...

Our hotel stay was in a VIP Double Room. We had a mid evening arrival at Heathrow with an early morning flight out of Gatwick so a stay at Bloc Hotel was essential.

So utterly convenient - right on the airport at South Terminal. Small rooms but perfectly designed. Comfy beds, super easy checkin/out process. Staff are helpful and friendly. Thanks for the upgrade! Please open more Bloc hotels in the UK.

The hotel is located in the airport hotel so is perfect no matter what terminal you're flying from. Rooms are very small (we had bunk beds) but the beds are comfortable and the shower wet room was lovely.

Have recently stayed two nights at the Bloc Hotel in Gatwick. We booked here because of the proximity to the South terminal which is ideal as only a few minutes walk to the check in desks. Checking into the hotel was very quick & efficient. On entering the room you realise how small these really are. The bed is flush...

Wife and I stayed here overnight for my wife to transfer from Rome > London > Toronto. All we needed was a place to sleep and this worked fine FOR ME! Wife thought it was small, didn't like the absence of windows... But if I was traveling alone or met the same situation as this trip, I'd definitely do it...
