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...

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...

We have stayed here several times, and the room and bed are always excellent. My wife finds the ensuite rather challenging as it is smaller than she would like. No breakfast included, but at these prices who can complain. The rooms are showing some wear, but not such as to make them unacceptable. Staff are polite and helpful.

Room is as described on website so don't know why previous reviewers are shocked at size. Yes it's a tiny room, but the idea is that it's a SMALL room with only necessities. All luxury, no faff. Wet room is cool and shower beautiful- of course the water COVERS the whole room so avoid taking your phone in like I...

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
