Location couldn't be much better. Heart of London. My room is fairly spacious with a stellar view overlooking the city.

The facilities are superb, state-of-the-art with an in-halls gym and swimming pool. However, the social experience is a bit dull as it is not the suitable environment to make friends and socialise.

Great location, great facilities. Wifi coverage cuts in and out. Hot water not always available. Rats seen in the basement. Pretty terrible social environment in terms of meeting people, but I've had a decent time just in my flat of three people. Any friends I have at Urbanest I made last year, but that's also a result of people being less willing to mingle than in other halls. Social facilities are pretty good though.

The location is perfect and the living conditions are much better than in public university halls. However, as most private accommodation, Urbanest is well overpriced. You do get many facilities, but the WiFi is regularly breaking down or weak.

I found the entire building is energy-wasting. The lights are on all the time as there are no sensor switches. And there's basically no recycling. Room is small for the price I paid. The location is okay a little bit far from my school. The common room on the top floor is amazing, with the best view. Reception team is less efficient than the hall I lived last year (there's always a queue there). Staff are friendly. The gym downstairs is quite convenient though you have to pay extra money to use it. Internet is slow sometimes.

Its location is amazing. Right at the end of Westminster bridge. The real highlight of the accommodation is the 18th floor which gives unmatched views of the houses of parliament and the big ben.

The hall is extremely beautiful and new. rooms and bathrooms are small but efficiently designed. Plenty of study space and big common areas with great views. Nice place to socialise and live in London
