The team at Dandara Living have become like family; always cheerful and so welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. It’s always a pleasure to come back to a smiling face, after a long day at work! Other than that, Dandara Living in Birmingham, is most certainly, home from home.

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

The shops, bars, restaurants and local transport links are easily accesible and all within walking distance. There are plenty of open spaces, with seating, available around Aston Place.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the views from my balcony during the Commonwealth Games. At Christmas, the twinkly lights from the Library and Ice Rink were truly magical.

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

The only downside is that if we have the doors to the balcony open, we can smell the cooking from other apartments.

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

My washing machine stopped working. The appliance was replaced by the time I returned from work.

Hello Shin,

The Commonwealth Games certainly did the city proud and I’m so pleased to hear you were able to enjoy some of the atmosphere from your balcony! Thank you very much for your review, it’s fantastic to hear that you feel so at home at Aston Place and hope you’ll continue to be very happy here.

Full of positive suprises

Would love to have more social spaces and opportunities to meet other people in Aston. Better gym space for the more than casual goer. That said the location of the place is good as its close to variety of gyms that are built for the more than regular goer.

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

The location is good shame about the construction work just outside

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

There is no moving in services. I.e people helping etc

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

I like the building management team. There are very quick to respond to requests and are very understanding.

The building is very well located in the city center, close to all services available. Very well built with excellent quality materials supported by an excellent network of services and building management.

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

The building is very well located in a very central location in the city.
As I travel a lot, it is especially important to have good access and be close to the train station. In this development, these factors are fully achieved

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

I did not know of the existence of services available to be requested .

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

The building management is always present and attentive to the needs of each tenant

First Class Establishment!

The only real criticism of Aston Place would be the number of elevators for the amount of apartments within the building. When one was broken-down it was pain to be waiting for the one elevator when one lives on the 20th floor. The bin area on a couple of occasions were overloaded.

Kishor and his team went above and beyond any expectations. A well mannered team!

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

As reflected in my rating excellent. If I were to be really critical than the noise from the sirens of the emergency services can be a little irritating.

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

Maybe only the volume of traffic but then that’s city living.

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

The only occasion I needed to call building maintenance they were prompt.

Home away from home

Review Date Apr 2022

Property management – very good, and they try to sort out issues as quickly as possible. Property management staff and team are one of the best parts about living at Aston Place, aside from the obvious comfort and great location, and the beautiful building is is

The studios don’t feel like one- the bedroom is walled off with one of the best stand alone studio designs one could hope for. Makes great use of the light and the apartment feels bright and airy. Only negative is that there should be a screen door at least to protect the wardrobe from cooking odours – but I guess it is called a studio for this prescise reason.
Balconies are a beautiful size and spacious. The studios, despite being studios, can pack a punch! They can accomodate quite a bit.

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

Excellent location with New Street station within walking distance. 10/10 for lack of noise and respectful neighbours – hope it stays this way

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

Don’t think I have any that I can think of – the building has everything one would ever need

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

The building has responded to problems and issues that were raised and this was dealt with in a timely manner -I hope this will continue as this is what sets both the building and staff at Aston place apart from the thers.

Building design and layout is compact and facility is well maintained. Apartment is relatively new, clean and tidy. Front desk and property management staff is very friendly and always there to help. Building has a reception with friendly staff and security cameras for the safety and wellbeing of the tenants. Building has a inhouse gym with all facilities. Parcel room is well managed with access system based on unique codes and definitely helps the tenants to pick up deliveries at any time.

The building is really nice with good facilities. There is a gym and a coffee machine, the building is clean and well thought out. There could be more lifts and there could be more kitchen space.
The property management is great and all the staff are really friendly.

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

Very good location in the city centre very close to all shops, restaurants and train station. Quite noisy as on the main road.

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

The kitchen is small with minimal storage space, and the fridge/freezer is tiny.

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

They have responded quickly and sorted any issues quickly.

Review Date Sep 2021

It’s great that the apartment has a big balcony so that we can enjoy the fascinating night scene of Birmingham. I love enjoying different kinds of coffee that provided everyday. I love there is a gym room. The parcel room is new, highly secured which is perfect to me.

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

Everything is wonderful except there is a little bit noisy because too many ambulances pass the main road during
midnight.

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

The traffic noise mainly produced by the ambulance during midnight.

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

They help me to set up all the electricity, gas and council tax and print out the documents I needed.

A nice place to live with helpful staff

Review Date Aug 2021

Any building issues are corrected quickly when reported, the external facade of the building has cracks in it
That will get worse over time, however it has been reported and checked by maintenance team.
We have to go down to basement with all rubbish in the lift , which is a little of an off put
Fridge size is small it could do with a bigger one ( fridge freezer).

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

Location is excellent,helpful staff
Furniture package is good ,standard of the building internal and outdoor is high

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

Everything was clear before hand ,the try to go for a package that has a fridge freezer as it is difficult with the small fridges and you have to be on your knees to get to the bottom tray

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

They have always responded Quickly
To all issues raised
