Fodor's Expert Review The Bloc Hotel

77 Caroline St., Birmingham, Birmingham, B3 1UG, England

There are few frills—and even less space—at this budget hotel in the Jewellery Quarter with pod-style bedrooms, but the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms decent, and there's no shortage of designer touches. Bedrooms (which are small) are decorated in cool tones of autumnal brown, green, and gray. Skip the preordered breakfast and instead make use of the hotel’s partnership with nearby Saint Paul’s House, where you can have a continental breakfast for £12.

  • comfortable rooms
  • unbeatable prices
