Look good Feel Bad

Review Date Aug 2019

The facilities are quite good which explains the price. Gym is quite small with no window in it. The price will go up for extra £100 per month even for renewal. Member of staff are quite slow at service also; emails or maintenance issues were not been taken care of ASAP; while the move in and move out instructions are clear but strict; a lot cleaning to do including the kitchen fan… In general the apartment is good, but the service for the past year is below expectations. Also for people needed a UK guarantor, hint is that Uncle ask for 50 times above the monthly rent for salary reference, which is a lot higher than the standard 30* above elsewhere.

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

Area is good, quiet, close to Spar and city center.

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

Gym is on 4th floor. Reception will take care of parcels even on Saturdays.

Amazing

Review Date Aug 2019

I think that the staff are fantastic. Also, there are lot of cool working spaces such as the art studio, offices and gym. I think that the places is fantastic. The only downside is that it can be expensive, the could lower the price but its not a bad value. I understand uncle to be a canadian compamy with american set up. So the staff are really friendly and have our backs. For example, they pick up parcels for you so that they dont get stollen. They will get signed for.

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

My place is very central. Sometimes it can be noisy because of pedestrians but you get that anywhere in town.

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

I would recommend getting to know staff as they are extemely helpful. One example being that when i lost my keys they picked up phone late at night and let me in for free.

Love the building and the community

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2019

The decor has been kept quite contemporary but still modern which gives it a nice and homely feel. We did have to move from the ground floor to the top floor as it was too poorly insulated which does cost more money unfortunately but the building itself is great.

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

I dislike the noise from the trains at night however the location is good for the distance from the centre.

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

I wish I had known how poorly the ground floor is insulated so that we didn’t have to move.

What is the best feature of your home:

The facilities that the building has and the community.

Central and nice

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

The flat itself is nice, clean and compact. I think value wise, it is expensive but that you’re paying for location more than the building itself. The building is very secure however there is no intercom to let people in from your flat.

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

I like how central the location is and how close it is to the train station for commuting as this is really important for me.

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

I wish I had known there wasn’t intercom as this becomes very irritating when having friends and my Husband round.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I wouldn’t change anything, I think everything is ideal.
