Review Date Jul 2022

The property is managed well and taken cared of properly. It is cleaned regularly and maintained. The design is as good as a building can be and it is very comfortable. Your parcels are collected for you and there is a free gym for residents. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you Kishor, Abdul and the rest of the team!

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

The building is in the city center and very close to local shops, train station, Victoria square, Broad Street and The bullring

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

Extremely Friendly team

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

They respond immediately an issue is raised. The team tries as much as possible for the issues to be resolved

Honestly, just perfect!

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2020

The building and layout is very modern, interior decor very nicely set up. What you see online is what you get to see when you come to view the show rooms, which is something that stood out for me. You get to see the actual apartments aswel to get a feel of what you’ll get, which is good. Not sure if all apartments have balconies, pretty sure they do, the balconies are just the right size.
The concierge team is always on sight if you need anything- a friendly bunch. Same goes for the property managers- they’re just as nice and they’ll remember you and say hi when they see you about.
There’s gyms in the city centre, but the building block itself comes with its own gym. Perfect for saving yourself some money in this climate

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

The location is perfect! Couldn’t have asked for anything more. You have multiple grocery stores in the surrounding area, restaurants & cafes within walking distance; if you’re a student- the train station, Birmingham library (and night clubs) are literally a stones throw away! Everything you need is within easy reach. If you have a car, you’ll be able to save yourself the miles because of this. It’s honestly just perfect!

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

The day you move in is the day that becomes your rent payment day each month so take that into consideration when deciding a move in date.
We have been told this date cannot be changed at the moment, but hopefully that can be sorted soon, as it would be ideal to set up the rent direct debit on a desired date

What is the best feature of your home:

The balcony and the windows- they produce so much natural light 🙂

Wonderful and ideal

Review Date Aug 2020

The building is beautifully located and always clean. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The gym and office style area is well designed and we have been given frequent updates about when these will be open and how it will follow health guidelines. It is really wonderful and I have no faults, I would recommend Aston Place.

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

It is very close to the city centre shop, trains station and other needs. It is very well located.

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

The balcony is massive and perfect! I didn’t think it was going to be so large and it is great for storage.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I wish I had seen what our view from the balcony would be during virtual viewings. Also the front door slams very loudly if not controlled.

Best place we’ve ever lived – no joke

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2020

Everything so far has been fab. We had the smoothest stress-free moving day and the apartments have been a delight. Rooms are nice and ideal for us and the balcony is lovely. Only thing I didn’t like were the electric hobs instead of gas but we quickly got used to it and saved money because of it!

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

Great area with nice restaurants and shops, right in the centre of town

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

Perhaps a view of the view from our balcony before moving in

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

Nice and friendly and always willing to help with anything.

A wonderful place to live, with apartments that are to an exceptionally high standard. The whole team that work here are the real stars of the show, from Kishor, to the 24 hour concierge team, the amazing Paul in maintenance and the front desk team every single person that works here genuinely wants to make your life better. Great apartments, gym is great when you Covid isn’t here and the communal room that can be hired is an absolute god send especially if you want to have a big dinner party. There is unfortunately a lot of building work going on in Birmingham so when the weather is hot and all the windows are open it can get very noisy but that’s central city living. a great place to be!

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

The area is amazing!! Everything is on your door step! Shops, eateries, bars, everything. There’s nothing you would want that you couldn’t get right here!

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

The fridge is very very small and freezer almost unusable and there isn’t really anywhere for a bin. The staff are second to none.

What is the best feature of your home:

Our view and balcony are the best part of living here it really is amazing!

Great Place to Live

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2020

In pretty much every way, the development is excellent. The building itself has a really high level of finish and the staff are truly superb. The apartments are compact but well laid out and offer superb views of the city. Kishor, the ops and building manager can never do enough for you and is always on hand to make sure you are happy. The customer team on front desk again, are truly fantastic, no matter what the time of day or night, one of the team will be more than happy to assist. When we first moved in, we had a few teething pains and Donahue was always on hand to make sure that we were happy, Kirsty has been consistently there for us when we’ve needed anything even at 2 in the morning. Similarly, Paul in maintenance has been nothing, if not willing to help at any possible moment.

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

Birmingham City Centre is an amazing place to live, everything is literally on your doorstep. You’re able to walk to pretty much any area you would want to get to within minutes on foot. Local shops are great, eateries are great, next to the canal for walks and supermarkets in abundance.

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

There’s a few small design floors in the flats, the biggest one for us has been that there isn’t really anywhere to put a bin. Also, sometimes bits and pieces have gone wrong a little quickly, such as bits of fittings just falling off, but it’s always fixed immediately.

What is the best feature of your home:

The view, coupled with the large balcony are what really make this place what it is.

The perfect inner city apartment

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2020

Aston Place has many great facilities including a new gym with a virtual spin class room. There is also a secure parcel room and a cold store for your food shopping deliveries. Our apartment is a well thought out design. There are large windows throughout the apartment and a large wrapping balcony that provides a lot of extra living space. The apartment is also furnished which makes it perfect as a first time home.

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

Since moving into Aston Place we are yet to find any faults! The location is great, close to several transport links (tram and rail stations) and only minutes walk from shops, restaurants and bars. There is also underground parking available and easy access to the Queensway for a quick commute out of the city.

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

The view of Birmingham is amazing from our North West facing apartment (the higher up the better) and we get a several hour gap of sunlight roughly between 4-6pm which is great after getting home from work. However a more southernly facing apartment gets much more sunlight throughout the day, but not as good of a view (in our opinion).

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

Since moving into Aston Place we have had no major issues. Any issues we have raised with the management have been dealt with extremely quickly and efficiently.

Great place to live

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2020

The building is completely new. The living areas are modern and well furnished. The staff are kind and helpful. Flats are well illuminated thanks to the big balconies and windows, and sound insulation is great. Bathrooms are practical, kitchens are big and have good storage capacity. Space isn’t a problem, bedrooms are big and have big wardroves.

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

The location is in a quite area, with little noise. All kinds of shops, supermarkets, commercial centres and the New Street Train station are within 10 minute walk distance.

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

The fridge is a bit too small. It wouldn’t be a problem normally, but with the pandemic it can be an issue.

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

I am pleased with the staff. They solved every question I had and have been very helpful.
