Edwards74's review of Bristol Marketgate

“Worth paying”


written by Edwards74 on 09/11/2022

Environment is nice, clean and good atmosphere. The receptionists are also friendly. One bad point is that accommodation location is a bit far from UWE uni bus stop so walking to the bus stop to catch the bus in time especially in the morning is a nightmare for me. If you wish to ride Uber to UWE everyday, it would not be a matter for you. Pro point is that it is also near Cabot Circus shopping mall so you can easily get milk tea, coffee, clothes, shoes, food, etc. Another thing is you might feel a bit isolated once you first arrive Marketgate as students don't really have a good chance to make friends. Most students stay inside their room, and you can't do anything about that. Later, you will get used to staying isolated, and you will come to love your own lonely space where you can do anything you want.

One real hidden truth is rooms are not sound proof so you can hear mostly everything from your neighbours such as partying noise. But it's alright because it is only just sometimes, you can get standard living style, and you are living in England so you can report noise pollution if you want. You also need to be careful about your noise as they can also hear you :3
I have observed and visited other famous student accommodation in city centre, and found out they all are the same. One good point is your room roof is high in Marketgate even though some other expensive accommodation has low roofs where you feel a bit tight.
Every morning, I wish there were a UWE bus stop between Marketgate and the real UWE bus stop so I could walk less.
Overall is good, Location is good for shopping
but when you wanna go bars and clubs, they seem abit far from you, and
when you wanna go to uni- walk around 12 mins to the bus stop

I chose Marketgate cuz of their one marketing sentence "Located in the heart of the city"
It's right somehow as it is just facing Cabot Circus shopping mall.
But then you will come to realise the hear of the city is abit in the middle of the city while Marketgate is situated in the eastern part of the city. Only old market area and High way road to UWE is left beyond the east of Marketgate.
