THE GREEN ROOMS MEDIACITYUK, we love the look and design. Its modern, simplistic, and real good quality furnishings and finishes.
The facilities are great. We often make use of the ‘social room’ on the ground floor overlooking the canal. When we have friends over, we go play a game of pool. Its also a great spot to host small gatherings with an equipped kitchen, lots of comfy seating too.
The Bin room is the only downside to this area, as the entrance is in the same corridoor to this social space, and often smells quite bad walking through. but you get through there in a quick second.
The Gym is great! Often quiet, with all the essentials.
The lobby is beautiful! And always such a great sight to come home to.

We love the fact that apartments have built in wardrobes, quality bedroom furnishings and super comfortable mattresses if you going fully furnished!
The management team are really superb! Made our process of signing the rental exciting instead of a dread. They were so quick and helpful to address ‘issues’ such a wonky mattress when we moved in. Replaced with a brand new one on the same day. Always lovely to chat with all the staff!
One ‘downside’ when we moved in, is that the apartment wasn’t as clean as we would have expected. So we had to take that on as a bit of a challenge (Cleaning the washing machine – inside and out) The previous tenants left the dishwasher in a bit of a state and the mould / mildew in the bathroom was quite bad) But that was resolved quickly by ourselves.
The BEST feature of this property is the soundproofing! You never hear a neighbour! We feel comfortable to be able to watch an action packed movie on loud, knowing we aren’t bothering our neighbours and vice versa.
In the summer (now) with most people having their balconies open and enjoying the good weather, you can hear them, but the moment you move inside, with the door open, it becomes light background noise.
We are very happy with the property, facilities, value and management! We plan on being here for a long time!
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
THE GREEN ROOMS MEDIACITYUK is situated in a perfect position for our needs.
We were firstly sold on the view of our apartment. We have an L shape balcony that overlooks the canal, and extends to the side for perfect sunset viewing.
The area is great for us. We love the modern city living feel, but with a much quieter area that is Media City. The bars and restaurants in the vicinity are great, being able to go for a nice dinner, an afternoon drink, often have live music and / or a great vibe always.
Initially, grocery shopping was not that convenient as there are no major shops around. The local General Store did the trick for quick few item pick ups, but with the new CoOp having opened, which is a decent size and allows for more cost effective grocery shopping has changed that.
The tram being a quick 3min walk away, allows us to easily pop across to a lidl just a few stops away which also solves that inconvenience.
Being able to grab a Costa on the way to work, is the best part, basically on the doorstep, and a lovely breakfast bistro across the road for easy weekend treats.
Honestly, the position fits every requirement we have!
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Moving in / out your apartment can be quite a mission as there are only two elevators to service 19 floors.
Arrange for early morning / late evening if you can. And ensure you speak to the management about getting a key to lock the elevator for your use only. This makes it quicker and tenants aren’t trying to fit in elevators with you and all your stuff.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Yes, we were experiencing a lot of ‘dust’ in the apartment. They arranged for the air filters to be cleaned for us in a timely manner. During this, the maintenance bloke, dropped a pipe on our wall, which marked it, but very quickly came and sorted that out with a fresh coat of paint. Very happy with the way they handle queries in a very timely manner.
