Most helpful review

There are many things to love about staying here. I would begin with the fact that the members of staff like Jas,Diger, Hugo etc. were always there to help with any issues I had. I remember reporting an issue a day before and it was resolved the very next day. Stay here means living in convenience as it is close to the town centre and next to restaurants such as, (McDonald’s, GDK, Treats, KFC, Creams, Nando’s, The Oracle). The train station and the gym are less than 5 minutes away from the accomodation. So if you’re a lazy person like me, then book asap and stop wasting time. Also, I’d like to mention that, they were very flexible with the payment plan, by allowing me to have a four instalment plan rather than three which is something I didn’t even know was possible.

Thanks so much for your review, I'm glad you found your studio comfortable, I think it really helps that they all have their own en-suites. Lots of our students love the location as it's so convenient for town.  I'll make sure I pass on your comments to the rest of the staff - it means a lot to us, thank you.

I had a really good experience living at central studios in Reading. The management of the property was excellent and all the staff (e.g. Front of House Coordinator, handyman, cleaner) were very efficient, friendly, and helpful throughout my stay. The location was also very convenient being so close to shops/supermarkets, coffee shops, and the train station with good transportation links to the university. The internet was also very fast and reliable and the social spaces and facilities were kept very clean and tidy. It was also very easy to order packages and deliveries with the management team helping to collect them and hold them in reception. I would recommend this property to a friend.

The accomodation Is located at a great place. It is a five minute walk from town and a fifteen minute bus ride to the University. Due to Covid, socially, it was not very easy to meet people and everyone kept to themselves. The place looks great, however, there were some issues with my and my friends windows which were not really ever fixed. The microwave oven is best used as a microwave as meat and even cake, requires a long time to be cooked and might never be fully cooked. But if you can cook in the stove this is a good place for you. The dryer for the clothes is located in a communal area and I havent really had problems with other people using it. However it might be best to use it during the week instead of weekends. The problem with it is that even if filled halfway through it might not fully dry your clothes and might require a second or third cycle. So I would suggest washing and drying a small amount of clothes at a time. The people working there are welcoming and try to help

Hello,

Thank you for leaving a positive review for Central Studios Student Accommodation. Some really good tips there for when and how to use the washing machines, and what you can or can't cook in the microwave oven. 

The location is great - with so much on your doorstep and the train station in easy distance, it is surprising that anyone would find time to do their laundry or do any cooking!

Take care and stay safe,

Jas and Simon

Great studios, superb location and friendly staff! Not suitable if you have a car as there is no parking on site, making it impossible for others to visit you or stay over if they have a car. The oven is not an actual oven but an oven-mirowave combo, therefore you could cook only a handful of food.

Hi,

Thank you for leaving a 5* review for Central Studios - they are great studios, the location is superb and we like being friendly!

It's unfortunate that we don't have any parking on site but there are lots of car parks close by (Q-Park Chatham Place, Cattle Market NCP, Reading Station Car Park for example) which is very useful!

Take care and stay safe,

Okay.. I remember my first day here like it was yesterday, I was so excited to live on my own as well as live here. My room was spacious which reflected the money I was paying. Although I wasn’t able to pay the original instalment plan, they were flexible in terms of letting me do a four instalment plan which is rare to see to be honest. So, back to my story, I moved in during the first lockdown and although it was difficult, the members of staff such as, Jas, Diger, Hugo, Olga etc. all helped the transition. I really love living here because it’s close to the town centre, there are restaurants everywhere (Nando’s, GDK, McDonald’s, KFC, Treats, Creams etc). It’s less than a 5 minute walk to the train station and there’s a gym less than 5 minutes away. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind staying here next year because I’d miss it too much if I left. So, don’t waste time and book asap.

I had a wonderful stay here 2020-2021. The room is clean and properly maintained. Facilities are easy to use and sign posted. The managing team Jas and Simon did an amazing job in this challenging time. The location is really 'central' - within 5 minutes walk to shopping centres and mainline railway station.

Simon the handy man helped me assemble a gaming chair That I bought that was complex and hard to assemble on my own Which I found very great; Daiga and jas were also both amazing as they were very to access if I had any questions or needed any help, and they both always were willing to help out and made sure that every aspect of central studios was well run from cleanliness, ensuring Covid 19 safety protocols and even festive activities for residents to take part in.
