Great Value, Good Team

Verified Resident

Review Date Nov 2023

Overall this is a fantastic place to live. Paul, Kishor, Abs, and all of the team here are very friendly and really sort you out. The management side are brilliant, and any issues e.g. plumbing are sorted very quickly. The only small downside to this place is the lift, two lifts are not enough for this size of place, however that is the only short fall. This place is not cheap (£1000+ for a one bed) however given its location, how safe it is, as well as there’s a gym and wifi is included, it is very good value. Would recommend 🙂

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

Good – very close to everything, stations, bars etc.

Bad – there can be some noise on the street at night, but only very occasionally and is to be expected living in the centre

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

I wish the gym was a little bit bigger, however it’s not bad given that it comes with the building. Wish the lifts were better!

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

Rapidly, I had an issue with my toilet and it was fixed the next day.

Great building to live in. The apartment is spacious with large closets which is rare these days. The building has a gym and common area which are all well looked after and clean. The team are also lovely, they’re always helpful and friendly. I also really like the activities they organise a few times each month. I met so many neighbours during these events!

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

Amazing location in city centre, short distance walk to the high street. I rarely have to use any form of transportation to get around.

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

I’d recommend contacting the building months in advance of you planning to move since the apartments are always taken up quickly!

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

We haven’t run into any problems in the 15 months we’ve lived here. The management arrange regular check ups of our apartment & boilers.

Central location close to Birmingham New Street, The Mailbox & the canals. Easy access to buses & trains which is great so I have not needed a car.

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

There are regular social activities organized every month by the team & it’s a great way to meet your neighbours

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

Hassle free living

Building management is first class. Kishor and the team take pride in managing the place. Everybody is always friendly and approachable. The gym is convenient and has basic equipment of a gym. I use the parking and a parking pass makes access easy throughout day.

City centre, convenient for work. Plenty of underground paid parking. Plenty of restaurants in area.

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

I was fortunate to have been recommended Aston Place by a friend.

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

Offering an attractive price, this centrally located gem near New Street Station places you in proximity to Birmingham’s top attractions—ICC, Centenary Square, library, canals, and Broad Street. Impeccably clean facilities, complemented by an exceptional apartment, create a delightful living experience. The staff, known for their warmth and friendliness, adds a welcoming touch to this exceptional residence.

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

I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience living in this apartment. The design is both modern and comfortable, creating a cozy atmosphere that feels like home. The facilities provided are excellent, meeting all my needs and adding convenience to my daily life. The building management is efficient and responsive, ensuring that any concerns or issues are addressed promptly.

The property management team has been attentive and professional, making the overall living experience enjoyable. They have demonstrated a commitment to maintaining the property and ensuring the well-being of residents. Additionally, the amenities and common areas are well-maintained, contributing to a positive community atmosphere.

Overall, I find the apartment to be of high quality, offering a great blend of style and functionality. The attention to detail in both design and management has made it a pleasant place to call home. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a comfortable and well-managed living space.

I am really impressed the team in Aston Place regarding how to manage the daily requests from the residents

Verified Resident

Review Date Nov 2023

As I am a Civil Engineer/Project Manager, I am really impressed the team in Aston Place regarding how to manage the daily requests from the residents. The buidling and property management team (such as an excellent manager Kishor, Abs, Melanie, Mark, ect) have been super helpful to support the new residents for moving in. I am really happy to see myself to make a right decision to live in here.

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

Personally, I have been living in Birmingham for almost 9 years and I have rent so many places in the past and I could definitely say living in Aston Place under Dandara Living company in Birmingham is one of the best choices I have made. As this place is very closed to the train station, a lot of decent restaurants and local super markets are surrounded. You also can take a tram to view the whole Birmingham without any issues. The most important thing is this place is very safe and traffic noise is almost invisible.

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

I probably wish to know that the Aston Place has provided charged cleaning service, I wish I could know this earlier otherwise it could help me minimise my time finding the professional cleaning service to do with the end of tenancy for my previous place.

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

Yes as I mentioned through the previous section, I am really impressed the way how building management to deal with the residents’s queries and help us out as best as they could.
