Overall I would say everything is really good. The staff are really friendly and helpful. General everything is really well managed and maintained. The design of the apartments make them really easy to live in and the facilities are excellent!

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

The only criticisms that I have is the amount of noise pollution from on going building and roadworks. It is non-stop on the side of the building we are on. The bin stink sometimes permeates through the bottom levels of the building as well. There are also a lot of youths the loiter around the building and in front of the playhouse who litter and smoke drugs which is not pleasant to say the least. They also on a few occasions have tried to trip me up with a skateboard and called my partner a “Tory cunt”.

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

Exact pricing on the renting/booking of facilities and then the road and building works. More info on where stuff is e.g. building

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

Always solved it asap and with a smile. No issues whatsoever.

Hi
Thanks for your review. The roadworks have been causing us all a headache for the last couple of years but hopefully they will be finished soon. The new buildings going up opposite NYS will be a great addition to the SOYO area but I agree, there is some pain to be endured before we get the payback.

We are working closely with our neighbours at the college & Playhouse to make the shared space more inviting to residents & less attractive to anti social behaviour. I’m really sorry your partner experienced this abuse, hopefully it wont happen again but if it does please let the front desk team know so they can speak to the people in question.

Its great to hear that my team have always responded with a smile & resolution 🙂

Thanks

Needs work to bring up to par

Hi

Thanks for your review, I’m sorry that we haven’t provided you the service you should have received.

It is always disappointing when we fall short of the standards we set ourselves, as we discussed last week we are working hard to turn the areas of concern around and there has already been vast improvement across the building.

Absolutely the best place to stay in Leeds.

Review Date Dec 2022

There is a Gym, Courtyard, Study Room and a number of Student Lounges in the building. Stocked with vending machines that are a life saver when in need of last minute coffee.

There is also a Screen Club, for watching movies on a projector and the best thing about the accommodation is that it’s PET FRIENDLY.

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

Located right next to the Main Street in Leeds, this accommodation provides links to the most important places in Leeds within a 10 minute walk.

Leeds Bud Station is right next door and the Train Station is a 15 minute walk/ 5 min Uber away.

The Communal Areas are of a very high standard and the staff are very warm and welcoming. This accommodation sets its bar very high in comparison to others in Leeds.

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

I wish there was a place for printing/photocopying as uni students need this facility all the time.

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

Always on time and very interactive. I had a problem with the washing machine and it was sorted out that day itself.

My wife and I moved here with our two small dogs. We are really pleased we did as the the facilities are great, furniture is good quality and staff are very friendly and approachable. there are numerous events which are included in the rent and some which require payment. The cinema is great for sporting events and the Moda team have set movie nights which occasionally include free pizza and beer! The gym has recently opened up which is good quality and has modern equipment. The Co working space is fresh and comfortable allowing you to be productive. The actual accommodation is really good quality. The bed super comfortable, all top of the range Samsung appliances, stone worktops, 50 inch TV to name a few. Finally the roof to terrace and residents lounge, perfect for a game of table tennis or pool and perfect for chilling out! If you are on the fence, just do it and sign up.

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

We have everything on our doorstep, clubs ,pubs, transport, parks huge options for eating out and entertainment as well as takeaway. Amazing!

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

As the time passes I could not be more happy with the management of the buildings. Support is always guaranteed and even with a smile. We feel very welcome as tenants at Moda, including our family and friends. They make sure everything is working properly, not only in the commons spaces but also at our individual apartment. Furthermore the gesture of offering coffee and fruits throughout the day, so as popcorn and pizza on movie nights is just amazing! As the time passes, it only reinforces the opinion that I found the best place to live in Leeds.

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

The location is perfect. The central bus station is 2 minutes walking distance and the train station 15 minutes. We reach most of the groceries, markt, Shopping mall, bars and restaurants after few minutes walking. The traffic noise is minimal too for the great central location.

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

Information about all the equipment that we have in our apartment – which ended up being a nice surprise when I moved in.

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

Always in a very efficient and quick manner. Queries or requests are always answered within 24 hours!

The building stands out as it towers above pretty much everything in the area, it’s modern and homely at the same time. The apartments have a great space optimal layout, and the couches are to die for. If you do get tired of your apartment, go up to the rooftop terrace for a breath of fresh air, or to the movie room for a quiet night in. The people that work here are also super friendly and helpful, and will help you with pretty much everything.

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

The area is really nice, central but quiet, most public transport and local shops are easily accessible!

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

Not a lot I can think of, maybe where to dispose of recycleable cans.

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

I have yet to have any issues, but if I did, I’m sure they would be amended.

The design of the building is impressive and very comfortable to live in. We enjoy living at moda and find the amenities and staff excellent, we particularly enjoy the roof terrace which is very comfortable and feels safe. The communal areas are always to a high standard of cleanliness

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

The area is well maintained, the only issue is the youths which are constantly outside the building even when i come in from work late at night, who tend to be loud and leave a lot of litter

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

I wish i knew the parking situation more clearly and where guests could park

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

Yes i enquired through concierge and received replies most times

Hi Chloe

Thanks for your review. We’re working hard with the college & Playhouse to address the issue of the kids in Playhouse Square, we’re trying to educate them about where they can go to relax in the city without causing a nuisance or, if they want to stay here, what we expect from them. Its taking a bit of time but we will get there I’m sure.

Thanks

You won’t regret moving in here, I might not leave!

Not gonna lie I wanted to keep this place a secret because it’s so so good.
I’ve been here a couple of months now and it’s just as amazing as when I moved in.
Apartments are the perfect size with huge windows. Facilities are great and can be booked for private events. The views from the rooftop terrace are amazing too.

The staff are my favourite people in the world. They literally would go out of their way to help you. Always a friendly hello every morning as you go by the concierge desk.

Amazing residents events, I moved here for work and it’s an amazing way to meet people. And a good range so there’s something for everyone.

Shout out to Louise who’s such an amazing and friendly manager. Gets everything sorted and always has a hello when you see here.

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

It’s literally in the city centre! Two minutes to John Lewis and ten to the main high street. There’s so much around, it’s amazing

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

You might never move out!

If you’re viewing make sure you check out the rooftop terrace and residents lounges. Their the perfect place to chill and unwind

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

Yes, had a couple of minor issues that were sorted within a few hours. Such fast efficient service.
