This year (2006), I started my studies in Coventry, Great Britain. Originally, I am from Germany, and never have been to England before. Thus, I had no experiences and did not know where to start looking for accommodations. I started by looking for agent on the internet and called so many people and have arranged some viewings.
What I did thereafter, was packing my belongings together and drove towards Coventry without knowing where I will find a place to sleep;)]. I viewed every room (about 7), but every room was dark, dirty, located badly or with moldy walls. Through someone on the street, I got to know that this company, accommodationforstudents.com has the best reputation, and can be easily accessed and the interface of its website is the easiest and that I should thry it out.
With distrust, due to a long and bad day, I tried to find an internet cafe and look for a housing on the website. I found many describtions that suited my vision and at exactly 11pm I found a place to move in and sleep...
Now, how exciting is that??
Thank you accommodationforstudents.com!!!!
Currently I am using it and also telling all my friends to use it.
