Most helpful review

Kensington house is really recommended. Located so close to the city center and most of the essential shops are near with affordable price. The room with its bathroom are very clean, have a good heating and well furnished. Staff are really friendly specially Mohit and he always offers his help. I hope using other facilities when COVID-19 restrictions lift.

Don't rent with them,my daughter took a studio for a year,we paid upfront for a year,due to lockdown my daughter didn't need the studio,they refused to refund and didn't find a replacement tenant.When we found one they wanted money from her even though we paid until 30.6.

It is a very pleasant experience. I was apprehensive initially about the accomodation in a new place and how things would be. But once I checked into the place it all eased to rest. It is very clean and secured. The property is located in the heart of Birmingham city centre and everything you need are just a few steps away. The rooms are bright, clean and well furnished with a lot of storage and feels home. Very satisfied with my booking with this property. I must also include a special mention about Mr. Mohit in the reception desk. Great guy! Very helpful and always ready to assist you to sort out any issues. My check in was hastle free when I arrived and he was very quick to respond to your queries. Highly recommended place for students to stay. Don't give a second thought. Just go for it and I am sure everything will be taken care of.

Please whatever you do stay away from Kensington House in Birmingham. Once you’ve paid your rent then they ignore all your repair requests. I moved into my room 3 weeks ago and there has been a problem with the radiator that needs to be overhauled. The noises coming from the radiator throughout the day and night even when switched off sounds like a car engine revving. I have been trying unsuccessfully to have it fixed properly and have been told numerous times that it needs to be bled. The maintenance guy who speaks no English doesn’t understand what my complaints are. I have been so frustrated and sleep deprived that I’ve been brought to tears. I’m not able to concentrate on my lectures which are all remote. Even my professor have asked if there’s construction work nearby. The building manager has ignored me and is very flippant whenever I complain. I don’t feel I’m respected because I’m a student despite the fact that I’ve paid like everyone else.

Kensington House is a great accommodation. It’s in the heart of Birmingham and it’s nearby shops, restaurants, university campuses and the train station china town. This property has games room, spacious GYM and movie room for student indoor entertainment. The staff are also very lovely and they always ask how my day has been. They’re there to help so if you have any queries, they’ll be there to answer them.

The living environment is very comfortable, close to new street station and China town. The staff is very helpful and welcoming and will occasionally provide some free fruits and biscuits and so on. My study abroad experience in Birminghan was very good. I highly recommend this property for international students.

High quality student accommodation unlike any other, especially for the area! Brilliant rooms done to a good standard offering style and functionality coupled with great communal rooms and lovely staff. Definitely worth the money! I feel comfortable, safe and at home in this building. It's also a great location to live being in the heart of the city.

Perfect facilities and location of the accommodation. The staff are outstandingly friendly and helpful to ensure a comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend this accommodation for students looking for accommodation in Birmingham. COVID-19: During the lockdown staff at Kensington house make sure we are safe . They have arranged for hand sanitizers and masks for the students in the building for their protection . All the common areas in the building is nice clean and tidy.
