I’ve had the best year staying here. The staff is amazing especially Tyreese and Damion. They’ve been friendly and easy to talk too. Would definitely recommend this accomodation to our other Canadian friends!

Very nice and reasonable accommodation. I like how it has a gym and social space but would be nicer if the rooms had its own washing machine as circuit laundry is always full. Staff are lovely and help a lot when needed especially when maintenance problem, it is solved very quick.

The staff are lovely and very caring! All enquiries are answered very quickly and you are kept updated. There was an issue with the driers and tammie offered to take my washing to be dried at another site as my clothes were wet. Very happy here!

This is my second year staying at Princess Road East with Hello Student and I rebooked for a reason. The amenities and spaces are what you can see online but what you don't see is the people that are behind it all! The staff are wonderful and they truly go above and beyond. Tammie made me feel at home before I even moved in for the first time and I look forward to seeing Sarah in reception with a huge smile or to even have a little chat ( ily both <3 ). You can talk to them about anything and it really set the place apart for me. It's in a great location so even if I'm late for uni (which I often am), I'm not toooo late. I love my room and my space and could not think of a better place to spend my last two years in Leicester. I honestly wish I found it sooner.

My experience at 73 Princess road east has been great there’s not many negatives I could say it’s a bit of a walk from DMU but since it’s my second year i wanted to focus on my studies and not be distracted and this accommodation has provided just that it’s allowed me to focus this year

Lovely room with morden electronics and the location is very close to High Cross which is pretty convenient. The building has tough security and it makes me very leisure.

Overall, it is still pretty good here. But sometimes the front desk is not here, which causes us to get the package in time. Also, the first floor will sometimes have an unbearable smell, which is like garbage water taste.

73 Princess is not just a student accommodation, it is home to me now and has been since day one, thanks to Sonia. Had I not met her, I would have felt stranded as a newcomer in this city, in this country. The viewing process was very respectful. My needs were understood and respected, my time was respected. I was allowed to move in, in no time. It has been a blessing to have come across this accommodation during my final year at Uni. Thank you Sonia once again for everything that you do for all the students here. You are always only a phone call away, which really helps. A big thank you from my family to you for allowing me a home like safe space here at Princess. I feel like a princess here, thanks to you.

Have lived here for two years now, since the place first opened and each year the price has gone up but in my eyes, the place is hardly worth the price since, most things don’t work. Even when you report it to the staff, it takes weeks for them to fix the problems. The fire alarm goes off often and takes a while for someone to switch it off which is very annoying.Certain areas inside the building constantly smell like smoke or weed which is very off putting and even when you complain nothing changes which is very unfair to the other students who also live here, who don’t smoke. From Thursday to Sunday It can get very loud.Some of the residents are very disrespectful, not only to the building by littering in social spaces but also outside and not being able to dispose of their waste properly which is not only once again unfair to other student but also to the members of staff who they seem to think are there to clean up after them. The staff are very friendly & helpful.

Covid-19: No not really, sent out a few generic stay safe emails but many residents are still hosting loud gathering and fire alarm is still constantly going off.

It's a nice accommodation. Very pricey, but there aren't many options for a studio apartment that is close to UoL. Unfortunately, it's let down by a number of the residents who don't seem to have any respect for the place, and this includes occasional loud parties in the common room and the courtyard which almost always lead to rubbish being left or, in some cases, criminal damage (I went to use the laundry the next morning and the glass in a door had been smashed...). The accommodation managers don't seem to take a hard enough approach on these people - they sent an email recently that they would be upping this, but in that email they basically admitted to just giving out warnings for smoking in rooms(!) which is a serious criminal offence. I can't see why they can't get rid of the troublemakers at first offence - especially since I'd imagine the contract would allow them to still get the rent for the year.

Do not come to this accommodation. The fire alarm comes on everyday and stays on for at least two hours. Accommodation manager does not care and will take his or her time to come and turn it off
