Nido Student Living opens boutique residence in London’s Notting Hill

Nido Student Living opened its latest student accommodation, Nido Notting Hill, on 31 August 2011.

Costing over £15 million and with a gross internal area of 75,000 square foot spread over six storeys, Nido Notting Hill will provide a boutique-style home for up to 277 students. It is the capital’s third Nido student residence, following the opening of Nido King’s Cross in 2007 and Nido Spitalfields, the world’s tallest student accommodation building, in 2010.

The residence is located in a quiet residential district on the Paddington Branch of the Grand Union Canal in northwest London. Residents will be based in one of the capital’s most colourful locations, best known for the Notting Hill Carnival, the largest street festival outside of Rio. They will also be moments away from the world-famous Portobello Road Market, where bargain hunters scour for vintage clothes, antiques and treasures. Top local venues like the Blagclub and the Supperclub will keep party-goers happy, and for those keen to explore the sights of London, the accommodation is within walking distance of Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park Underground stations.

Nido Notting Hill will accommodate students in a range of room types, including single studios, accessible studios, twin studios and two bedroom studios. The accommodation will be managed by a Residence Manager who will have a team of housekeeping, security, maintenance and Residence Life staff to ensure the facility is well maintained and the students are well looked after.

Communal spaces include a shared lounge, laundry facilities and an outdoor courtyard on the first level. Residents benefit from an electronic swipe entrance, 24-hour security staff and CCTV outside and inside of the building. High-speed cable and wireless internet is included as part of the weekly fee, and VOIP and IPTV are available for an additional cost.

Nido’s cashless vending environment allows students or their parents to ‘top up’ their room key card with money to use for laundry, vending, or for paying their rent, so residents do not need to carry cash around the building. There is in-room cleaning and dry cleaning available for a fee, free bicycle storage and an on-site shop.

Stylish student accommodation opens in East London

Looking at the new Nido Spitalfields you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a luxury hotel rather than student accommodation. This stunning new 33-storey development will be completed on 20 August 2010, and will accommodate 1,204 students. 

Located in an über-trendy part of East London, minutes from fashionable Hoxton and Brick Lane, there are plenty of bars, traditional English pubs and places to eat nearby. And if you fancy a bit of retail therapy, the famous Spitalfields Market is close by, as well as plenty of boutique shops. Liverpool Street Station, with its underground and overground connections is just five minutes’ walk away, making it easy to zip around London.

Nido Spitalfields offers a choice of stylish single studios, twin apartments or share apartments, depending on whether you prefer to live on your own or share with others. There are common rooms on each floor, offering a mixture of lounges and study areas, as well as two courtyards outside. You can also keep fit – and enjoy spectacular views over London – from the in-house gym on the 33rd floor.

Rooms have a broadband internet connection, and there is also wireless in many of the common areas of the building. Nido Spitalfields even has an intranet that allows you to search for fellow residents who speak your language, have the same interests or go to your university – a great way to make new friends. Another bonus for international students is the option to set up a VOIP contract on your in-room phone to make and receive cheap international calls for a fee.

Nido Spitalfields is the second Nido student accommodation to open in the capital, joining Nido King’s Cross, which opened in Septemer 2007. Nido will also be opening a third student accommodation block in Notting Hill, best known for its world-famous street carnival, in September 2011.
