Stayed here twice now on business. This is a more modern version of the Easyhotel. It is in the quieter Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, but what a lovely area. St Paul's church and it's great square is 50 metres away. There are a couple of decent pubs there and a couple of restaurants nearby. However, it is only a 20 min walk into town. A bright airy entrance and easy check in. The rooms are small. Your bed touches the wall on three sides, like an easy hotel, but unlike Easy the decor is calm browns, creams and greys. You get a tv fitted in the wall at the end of the bed and you get free wifi. Unlike Travelodge or Premier Inn there is no room to work, just a bed. No wardrobe or cupboards. The small bathroom "pod" is again very smart and functional. Good shower with a choice of the usual small but well powered shower head or you can opt for the larger head placed in the ceiling. This is a nice practical cheap option for Birmingham. I paid £50 on a Thursday and then £35 Friday, the latter being an amazing price. The bed is very comfortable and the towels were huge, fluffy and of a good quality. There are ironing rooms and vending machines available for drinks, coffee and snack.
All in all a bargain smart venue if you are on a budget and don't mind the stroll into town.
- 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
