The apartment was nice and clean but the issue that let it down was key entry to my room. They use an app key on your phone which failed 4 times and had to go looking for the manager and as been on 9th floor a bit of a mission.I wouldn’t stay again due to this.

The apartment and facilities are 10/10. Clean, modern & comfy rooms with a great basement gym, rooftop & outdoor terrace. Room facilities also great - fully equipped kitchen + utensils, smart TV, towels provided, etc. Perfect location - walking distance to Grand Central, Bullring, Arcadian & Digbeth. ||||My complaint is regarding the customer service provided by Charles Hope. I wish I had read reviews before booking, as I too have had issues regarding my security deposit. The payment was taken twice and I had to do a lot of chasing before this was resolved. I also had to wait 10 minutes on arrival outside in the cold after ringing twice & not being able to get through the first time. ||||On the first evening of my 2-night stay, I received such a fright when I heard someone enter my apartment - turns out the housekeeper wasn’t aware there was a booking which lacks professionalism in my opinion (suppose I just got out the shower or something?) This caused me to be on edge the remainder of my stay, with any noise I heard in the corridors and having to lock away all my belongings as I went to & from the building. ||||I was given no useful information upon check-in regarding the building facilities, I was just handed the keys and sent on my way. It would’ve been great if I was told there were two sets of elevators for example, one of which does not take you to reception. I spent 10 minutes going up and down the lift trying to find my way out the building! Following all the frustration leading up to my arrival & at check-in, this just added insult to injury. ||||These apartments have great potential, but are sadly let down by the lack of professionalism by CH management.
