We had a early flight from Gatwich.. too early for public transport.. and a private car service was going to be 60 GBPs..
So.. we decided to stay the night at the hotel.. I purchased tickets on the Thameslink for 6 GBPs each.. and we went out the night before.
The Thameslink takes you right to the airport and the hotel is right in the airport .
The Bloc rooms are small.. almost a cubby style hotel. but super modern and clean.. and one of the comfiest beds we encountered in a month of travel. Nice duvets ..
I think we paid 84 GBP which was cheaper then our hotel in London.. and frankly this hotel is nicer except for size of rooms.. they are meant for one night stays.
Bathroom super modern.. but weird wet room set up .
Anyways.. it was a pleasure not getting up hours earilier to commute to airport.. we simply walked out the hotel lobby into the terminal and off we flew..
