Fodor's Expert Review The Bloc Hotel

77 Caroline St., Birmingham, Birmingham, B3 1UG, England Fodor's Choice

This budget hotel in the Jewellery Quarter has pod-style bedrooms, plus a selection of mini-apartments for those who want to use their hotel as little more than somewhere to sleep between exploring. The rooms are updated with smart controls and decorated in cool tones of autumnal brown, green, and gray with pocket-sprung mattresses, monsoon showers, and HD LED TVs. For breakfast, make use of the hotel’s partnership with nearby Saint Paul’s House or try one of the other cool local cafés.
