New in London, great location

Review Date Sep 2019

Fully serviced apartments, clean rooms and full service provided. Lovely concierge and they are very helpful. I have been here for two weeks and all is very good so far. Nicely designed apartments and friendly people.

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

Close to good food, walking distance to nightlife.

Dead at weekends.

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

Air conditioning is non existent and it was really warm in the summer

What is the best feature of your home:

Nice deck area, which was a lovely suprise especially in the summer.

Hi Tom,

We are so happy you are enjoying your first two weeks in your new home!

Great apartment in the middle of the city!

Quite a lot of space inside my apartment. Most things are great about the flat, with good finishing but there were issue with the lighting initially, but they fixed that very quickly would say its good price for the apartment.

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

Quite close to my university. but can get quite scary at night. The area is very nosey in general, but i don’t mind it

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

None, no surprises when i moved in and even till now

What is the best feature of your home:

the area, really close to everywhere i need to be.

The design decisions are not great. The architecture could be better. Windows do not open fully, I dont want to commit suicide I just want some air, hot water issues. Warm building. Very modern which is nice.

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

Good building, location. Central good transport
No parks or gardens, very loud, homeless people

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

Nothing that i wasn’t prepared for, i done thorough research.

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

Hot water has been a nightmare but landlord has been very responsive.

My bedroom has an en-suite, one of the few that does. Great apartment that came furnished and of great finishing. Quite a lot of heat from apartments below. On 22nd floor – furnished. Concierge great, always there. There is a balcony. Great showers. Building management not great. My lock broke, and building management refuse to fix it.

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

Great being right next to the station, lots of homeless around here. Great links close to work, there’s no supermarkets around here but that’s fine.

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

None it’s been mostly positive with few surprises.

Very nice and new and modern, recently developed, close to supermarket near here and lots of restaurants. No aircon in the buildings and it was really hot in the summer. There are no balconies and as a smoker I am on the 19th floor so it is inconvenient.

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

Great location, close to station and has 2 lines.

Busy main road, noisy at night, far from oxford street

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

Aircon was not present which was bad because i moved in in summer. Was really hot.

No smoking building

What is the best feature of your home:

The view is great for me as i am located on the outside.

Great location

Review Date Jul 2019

The design is pretty modern, contemporary facilities it’s really nice inside.
It’s right next to the tube station so great for transport.
There is a 24hour concierge which is great but unfortunately there is no gym.

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

The no gym is bad because we pay a lot to not have the facilities.
The location is the best part.

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

There not being a gym.
