Our properties are rented out as flatshare apartment, meaning that the entire apartment needs to be rented as opposed to individual rooms. Therefore only enquiries that exist in the needed number of flatmates can be processed. It is therefore key to find/create a flatgroup of the exact required number.

I lived in a studio apartment for 2 years. It was very comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen were well-equipped and the facilities were nice. The landlord was very helpful and understanding. The service was really good, as any problem would be fixed within little time. Therefore I would recommend this organisation. Once, you rent it, you live comfortably with no problems. Plus all the people involved are nice and helpful.
I am sharing the house with 6 other international students. It's a really awesome house, recently renovated and very spacious. I love that we have a living room where we can talk and have friends over. Regarding facilities, there were no challenges, it was easy to share 2 toilets and showers with 7 people and whenever something was not functioning properly, the technicians fixed it in a few days. The fact that we had a mixed group was also nice. Some of us want to continue living together and now we are trying to extend our current contract. The contact with everyone in the landlord's team was very professional and we are happy with the quality of the services. We had a couple of issues with the heating and the internet in the beginning, but these were fixed in a matter of 2-3 days. I think that service manager was very clear in all the communications which made our stay even nicer.
We also were very lucky with the organization of the landlord. He cares about our well-being here. As a finance student, I realize that we payed premium for the place, but in the mean time I definitely felt that we received a return, which made the stay very pleasant.
