First impressions really good. Quiet location about 10mins walk from temple row area. Funky reception, quick check in. Loved the room -feels like a ships cabin, which I guess is the point... Purple lighting, huge bed slotted against the wall, which felt really cosy and great rain shower. Not fussed that the whole bathroom got soaked, you expect that. Only drawback is that the walls were paper thin. We heard next doors conversation at 1am as well as the people in their room on the other side of the corridor! The hotel can't help people being noisy but you generally don't hear anything like that in premier inns etc. And at 8.30 this morning, heard every shower, hair dryer and person leaving the hotel!!
So, recommended if you don't mind noise. Otherwise, a lovely hotel.
- 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
