A lovely place to live

The design of the building was a draw for me when I first came to see the building. It is evident that a great deal of attention was put into the details of this apartment building. It is beautifully designed and decorated. The lounge room is spacious, tastefully decorated, well-lit, and welcoming. The outdoor area is also very nicely decorated. It is a lovely place to spend time, and it is rather quiet. The gym, while on the smaller side, has everything I could possible need while exercising.

The rooms are nicely designed and decorated. The paint colors, furniture, the beautiful bathroom all come together to make a beautiful home. The rooms are on the smaller side, but this is helped by access to the spacious common area and outdoor living area.

The building and property management are exceptional. They are prompt in their communication and very professional. I have not yet had an issue with my apartment, but I have the feeling that if I were to reach out to management that I would be in good hands.

The staff here are very warm and welcoming. They make this apartment feeling like a home.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

This is an excellent location as it is quite central and is rather tidy. It is near an area with diverse bars and restaurants of high quality. It is very close to the Albert Dock area which is definitely a selling point. It is also very near James Street station and there are many bus stops in the area.

The one draw back is that is is near a rather busy area in terms of traffic.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I had considered the traffic noise.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

I have not yet had any issues with the apartment, but I am confident that the building management would respond promptly and in a professional manner.

Modern and Bright Accommodation in the City Centre

When looking last minute for a place to live in September 2021, I never thought I’d come across somewhere that was in the city centre, was of good quality and at a reasonable price. Therefore, finding The James, a brand new listing came as a complete shock to me.

The building has a modern and light design. The rooms are bright and have windows from wall to wall. Wardrobe space is amazing. The kitchenette is quite small (as expected) but is enough for one person living here. The only thing that was a bit of a problem at first was the limited cupboard space but having lived here for a year now I have gotten used to it.

The staff at reception are lovely, always eager to greet you pleasantly when you walk in and are always more than happy to help with anything.

In terms of facilities, the garbage disposal is available via the lift (on -1) so very easy & accessible. There are washing machines and dryers on the first floor which is also very handy, the only downside is that they aren’t included in the bills and must be paid for when used.

The only criticism I have, which is a very small one, is that there is also a gym, outside terrace and lounge available on the property, but are only accessible if you hold a James membership. I would have assumed that anyone living here would automatically be a member, however this isn’t the case and an additional fee must be paid to become a member (and thus, gain access to the additional facilities mentioned).

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Living within walking distance to essentially anywhere in the city is amazing. The James is right on the dock, is directly opposite James Street Station and is only a very short walk (5 mins max) to Liverpool One and the high street.

Castle Street is also just around the corner with a wide range of bars and restaurants, with outside seating for the majority making it very nice during the summer (the same goes for Liverpool One too).

The location is amazing and the only drawback that I can think of really, that comes hand in hand with being in such an amazing location, is the noise pollution. I personally don’t mind it and if you enjoy the hustle & bustle of living in a city centre, neither will you. But for someone looking for somewhere that’s quieter, the city centre (or James Street specifically) might not be the ideal place.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Good- how amazing the location is, how much wardrobe space there is and how beautiful the design is.

Bad- that you have to pay additional charges to access some areas of the building and to use the washing machines/ dryers.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They have been quick to respond and help with any and all issues that I have raised in the past.

Fantastic accommodation and staff to match

The building is superbly well designed, very modern and spacious with excellent furnishings/facilities. I find it extremely comfortable to live here. A big concern prior to moving in was wether it would be too noisy and interfere with my work but for a city centre building it is surprisingly quiet from external noise whilst their is essentially no internal noise, I often question if I have neighbours as it’s that silent. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have a peaceful sleep. The bed the building provided is extremely comfortable and high quality too.

Since moving in the staff have been nothing short of superb, they resolve all issues quickly and efficiently and there always so welcoming and friendly when you come into the building, especially Jennifer and Ellie.

Ultimately I could write a lot of positive feedback for this building as it has really become my home when I had only intended to stay for 4 months originally, but now I’m nearing a year of stay! My friend even moved in as well based on my recommendation I rate here that highly.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Sitting between the Albert docks and the city center the building offers me extremely quick access to the vibrant social scene as well fantastic transport links essential to my work.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Take the time to explore the city, I made the mistake of starting a job the moment I arrived and didn’t realise just how much Liverpool has to offer until much later than I should of. Fantastic city with fantastic people.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

After a year of living in the building the tv provided by the building ceased to work, I emailed Ellie at the front desk on my way to work, she replied within the hour and kindly had a replacement fitted by the time I was home.

Modern Building, Nice Room, Great Part of Town, Lovely Staff!

The building’s design is very modern and minimalistic, we love the furniture provided in our room and it’s neutral colour scheme is such a nice change of pace from our previous flat. My only flaw is that our flat seems to get super dusty and the kitchen in cozy rooms is quite restricted in terms of countertop space. Other than that, we’re very happy with our choice, plus the staff at The James are all so nice and friendly!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The building is located in a nice part of town with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Bus stops and train stations are easy to get to. Street can be occasionally a bit loud but not enough that it’s a problem. Really happy with where we are located, especially with Liverpool One and the Albert docks being so close!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

There’s no oven, so we’ve bought ourselves an air fryer.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The one issue we did have was sorted in no time, plus maintenance helped with the moving in process which was super nice of them!
