I just checked my mailbox a few minutes ago and I discovered that there are several letters in my mailbox just now which were all sent from the Council about my council tax. I just opened one letter and found a Council tax student enquiry form it said that the student enquiry form needs to be returned three weeks after the letter was issued. The issue date was the 18th October and today is already the 28th November. It said that if the letter which contains the enquiry form isn't returned within three weeks after the issue date 18th October there will be a penalty of 70 pounds. The letters have clearly arrived at the annoying reception urbanest kings cross the latest by mid to late October, how come the letters suddenly arrived at my mailbox only today? I was looking and is still looking for my missing letter which contains the new llyold bank visa card, today when u guys annoying people were looking for my letter, you guys just suddenly discovered my letters sent from the council about my council tax bill and just put into my mailbox today. they have clearly arrived at the reception a month and a half ago, my letters from the council were kept at your reception desk, and now I have to pay for the 70 pounds penalty fee because of the late return of the student enquiry council tax form, and I won't be able to get student discount even if I pay for the 70 pounds now because it is too late, I think I have already told you that my original national railcard got lost in the post in early October, and I had to order a replacement national railcard. My letters never get lost when I was staying at my intercollegiate hall international hall last year annual rent was only 9000 pounds per year with studio, the rent at urbanest kings cross is around 17,500 pounds per year, how come I receive a service which is way poorer way more unacceptable than the service I received at my hall last year, seeing how my letters from the council about the council tax bill and enquiry form just arrived at my mailbox today and seeing the letters all were issued in mid October and actually had arrived at the reception desk in mid to late October, only realizing how negligent you guys are and didn't handle my letters with care and now I have to pay for the penalty fee of 70 pounds and won't be entitled to a student discount on council tax because of late return of the form

Unorganised management and staff. Took more than 2 weeks to get the kitchen sink fixed and water was stopped during this time. Delays in sorting the parcels/delivered goods are common occurrence. Rooms are relatively new but they are advertised better than they are in reality.

The location and quality of rooms are really nothing to complain about. However, management and maintenance are terrible.

Overall good for the features rated above. Staff is helpful and always smiling. However note that the quality of furnitures is disappointing, not as good as what the price of the rent reflects. Finally, Urbanest KX is close to King's Cross Tube amd railways station which is very well connected to the rest of the city, perfect if you want to commute all around London.

Pros:

- modern and clean building

- modern rooms, a little small but well furnished

- modern kitchen appliances (both shared kitchens and studios)

- nice communal areas

- walking distance to King's Cross



Cons:

- terrible management (not always present, rarely able to help, never respond to emails)

- pricey, and although value for money is ok, it's still a lot

- atmosphere is very "professional", lacks the university hall feeling

- area is "up and coming", i.e. building is surrounded by construction sites
