Overpriced and driven by chinese and other asian students who pay a severe premium, driving prices north. Actual space is ok, views are grewt, quality leaves a lot to be desired. Expect price hike as soon as capacity is reached in the building and a renewal is due. We were asked for 12%

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

Addressed to either hipsters or high end foreign students. Ok options to drink and eat, supermarkets are geared towards students

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

Termination for convenient and break clause for moving early

Great apartments, terrible management

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2019

The flats are really nicely finished, spacious and have great views. However, the management team dont provide good customer service and concierge isn’t always reliable. Its also pretty expensive especially after high annual rent renewals.

Transport links are great – elephant and castle station is round the corner and is easy to get around london

Wish I’d known the management team were unreliable.

Nice central location

Review Date Jul 2019

There is a lot of space in the apartment and it is very sleek and modern looking. The balcony is nice but rumour has it you are not allowed to smoke there. The deliveries are on time and the concierge is helpful with looking after parcels.

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

Easy to get to the City however it does get a bit rowdy sometimes.

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

That the parking is very expensive

Lovely place

Review Date Jul 2019

I really like the building, my apartment is really spacious and its a really good building in a location like Elephant castle and it’s fairly new and kept really clean. It’s really close to my uni, UAL, so getting there is really easy. I love it!

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

I like the location and the neighbourhood mostly, for somewhere in elephant and castle it’s pretty good

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

Nothing really

Lively area

Review Date Jul 2019

The apartment itself is very modern looking and sleek which takes away from the ‘homely’ feel of the place. The concierge is okay and the apartment has good storage and is quite spacious. Unfortunately I’d like to have a dog but no pets are allowed.

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

I like that it’s always vibrant but there aren’t many bars nearby. I can take the scooter to work and transport links are great literally a 2 min walk.

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

That when it’s windy it creaks a lot.

Development itself is really secure and the building is lovely, including the concierge who are really helpful. The only thing I could say is that the area is slightly dodgy, like the area seems unsafe at times but I love it overall.

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

Close to central but dodgy area.

About the area itself and how it can be unsafe at times.

Modern design and building

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2019

Good building to live in. There is a concierge inside, with a lobby bar. Very modernly designed. I live on the top floor. Nice layout with a lot of sunshine coming in. No car park and bike storage inside, which is a disadvantage.

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

There is a small park just opposite the development. Good area but the Elephant Castle Shopping Centre must be removed. It is close to St. Thomas Hospital as well.

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

I wish I had known the location is so central. I was pleasantly surprised by how close all shops and transport links are.

Modern flats in a fast developing area

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

Uncle’s building is very much about design which I love as it makes it very contemporary and young.
It also has a 24h gym and a rooftop lounge with 360 views of London, which include a bar, a kitchen, and a working area.
Flats are modern, new and clean, and feature a nice balcony.

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

Lots of convienient transport links which makes it very convenient, very nearby supermarket, good restaurants around and a nice park.

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

As this is my first time renting on my own, and as Uncle have their own management team (meaning they do not deal witn outside agents), the renting process was really easy however, now that I am moving it makes it more difficult for me to deal with agents.

Excellent to live in, but management could be improved (especially for the price)

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2020

The apartments are well designed; the layout of the flats make for a great living space, as do the balconies. However, the build standard in parts could be improved as we’ve had a number of instances of water supply issues, and small repairs, though the on-site team are generally quick at making fixes.

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

The location is excellent for links to most of London, however, it doesn’t feel like the safest neighbourhood in London, certainly not at night.

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

Wish I’d have known the average annual rent increase before moving in

What is the best feature of your home:

The private balconies are great; especially south facing on higher floors.
