Couldn’t Be Happier At Vantage Point

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

I’ve told many a person that moving to Vantage Point was the best thing to happen to us since arriving in London three years ago. Everything in the building is of a superior standard, from the epic view to the amenities all the way through to the super attentive residents team, who make us all feel like royalty and help to create a real sense of community. Would recommend Vantage Point further without a second’s hesitation.

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

Proximity to public transport couldn’t be more convenient as the tube station (Archway) is literally right under the building. This neighbourhood is really coming up with a wide variety of grocery and dining options right at your doorstep. There’s a very charming little park called Waterlow just up the hill while Hampstead Heath is up there with the best parks in the world and is reachable at less than 20 minutes walk.

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

What we didn’t know going in how much living in Vantage Point would contribute to our social life being new to London. The building is full of fascinating and warm-hearted people and the fact that there are so many shared amenities and events put on by the building means there’s no shortage of opportunity to meet an mingle.

Hi Derek, thank you so much for the fantastic review and recommendation. We are so happy that you love Vantage Point as much as we do. See you at a resident event soon!

Still the best decision we made since moving to London.

Initially we chose Vantage Point as our first home in London because it checked a lot of the boxes we required as young professionals. My husband and I had just moved to London with basically two luggages, no furniture, and no clue where to begin applying and installing internet. To the realtor we defined our need as “plug and play” and they brought us straight to Vantage Point. I can see why, all we needed was our tooth brushes and to plug our laptops. In many ways Vantage Point is perfect for us and the stage we are at in our lives. Mainly I can point to the fact that we work from home so the several space options to work from is one of our favourite features of the building.

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

I will start with the many things I like about Vantage Point: The breathtaking view on the 15th & 16th floor by far is the best feature of the building, the many spaces to work from, the facilities and the amenities, the community factor, the friendly and reliable staff, the contemporary interior. And now what I dislike about the building. It is mostly the technical things such as the weak ventilation in the flats, the flats becomes a hot-box during the hot weather in summer, the door handle on the 16th floor are painful and nonsensical, the sealing of the gym is too short, noise travel from outside to the flats.

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

One thing we didn’t know before moving to Vantage Point was the fact that the building and the staff strongly promote the sense of community amongst the neighbours. We could not have imagined that we would end up meeting many amazing people that have now become very good friends of ours and some great business connections that have been a great help for us professionally.

The best place to rent in London

Verified Resident

Review Date Aug 2019

Had an amazing time in Vantage Point – from the building design, communal areas, helpful and friendly residents team and the perfect location – can’t fault it!

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

It’s extremely well connected with 2 branches of the Northern line and just up Holloway Rd / Upper St. Building is literally next to the tube.

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

There was a bin chute when we moved in which the building decided to not fix anymore as it broke down too often. It’s now permanently closed and residents need to bring their bins to the basement now, but only one lift goes there out of 3 and there are no stairs to it. So you can easily find yourself waiting a while for the lift! It’s not the worst thing in life, but I wish they would fix the chute, it’s not like the rents are cheap and Essential living can’t afford it… Also flats don’t have A/C (communal areas do) and it gets REALLY hot in the summer. But that’s probably the case in any flat in London!

We’ve been delighted with the service at Vantage Point since we moved in. The location is perfect for my partner’s job and the communal spaces are so nice that I can work from here so I don’t need to rent a coworking space. All the team here are lovely, knowledgeable and helpful. We have enjoyed the social events and regularly make use of the gym classes. Thanks!

Hi Jason,

I’ve lived in Vantage Point for over a year now and don’t think there is another building in London that I would rather live in. The staff is great, especially the front desk crew. The building is really nice and communal spaces are great for hanging outside of your apartment.
For the price, you get a super nice flat, shared amenities, and a dog friendly building. All of which I was looking for in my living requirements.

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

Public transit is really convenient as we are above a tube station and have many bus stops around the building. Nice selection of restaurants and bars, having Lost Boys Pizza and Hot Wok Kitchen in walking distance has been a pleasure when you don’t feel like cooking after work. Best part is the proximity to Aldi, Co Op, and M&S though!
Only downfall really is that the gym is on the top floor so the ceiling is low and you can’t be too loud. Also, because the building is so centrally located to lots of great things, it can get pretty loud outside, especially when the bars close.

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

Wish I had known how mad the Northern line would be during the week. It’s already completely full most mornings by the time it gets to Archway.
Also wish there was a dog relief area closer by to the building.

Best accommodation experience

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

Having lived in many places, living in Vantage Point has been the best experience so far. I love living in such modern building with beautiful exterior. It’s not only it’s design that’s perfect, but also the services they offer. A member of staff always on site has been helpful in many situations from fixing something in the apartment to helping with the post etc. Having the option to go to the gym anytime I want is of a great benefit. Moreover, it’s good to be able to hang out in so many common areas. As a student I don’t have to travel to my uni library as I can just stay in Vantage Point and study there! Also, it’s a pet friendly accommodation which is quite hard to find in London.

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

I love living close to the tube station. It’s very access whether by tube or by bus. The building is also located close to 2 big parks which is beneficial for people with kids and pets. There are plenty of grocery storEs to choose from. The only disadvantage I find is to not have that many restaurant options

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