Brilliant location, shame about everything

"Old, sterile building right next to the city centre, single beds, small rooms, high ceilings and it probably hasn't been repainted in about 20 years, I'd recommend any of the other Unite buildings"- Anonymous

Although the building has been recently refurbished, it retains an old, rundown character with little in the way of modernity (except for the kitchens perhaps). The lifts are out of action most of the time, not ideal when considering the first accommodation floor is 9 floors up and the highest is 16 floors up! Security is extremely poor, as demonstrated by the fact that despite them promising a 24/7 security coverage, the security staff are nowhere to be seen and the common room TV was stolen twice, along with some personal possessions from the rooms. Despite having paid for the premium room, the bathroom is still the same size as the other rooms and by that, I mean small! There is barely room to maneuver and the shower curtain sticks to you every time you have a shower, along with the occasional pungent smell from the plug holes, which seems to come from other bathrooms connected on the same pipes. There is not even any additional storage space with the premium room, so you are paying far more for just a little more floor space, it's a scam! Reception hours is very poor compared to other accommodation providers, with no service at all at the weekends and often being closed to allow staff to cover other Unite properties. Staying here, you really get the feeling that Unite students do not care about the residents (who have paid well over the odds!) here and that they would rather look after those at the Heights and Curzon Gateway.



The only positive I can possibly think of is the location, which is 5 mins from the nearest shops (Sainsbury's and Tesco), 10 mins walk from Aston and BCU and a 10-12 min walk from New Street, Moor Street and Snow Hill stations.



Therefore, I would not recommend this place to anyone, especially those on a budget, you will find much better service and atmosphere in other accommodation blocks!

Old, sterile building right next to the city centre, single beds, small rooms, high ceilings and it probably hasn't been repainted in about 20 years, I'd recommend any of the other Unite buildings over this one, lovely views from the higher floors though.
