Good for the price

This is a good place if you are looking for a relatively inexpensive one-bedroom. Apartment is dated, but clean and the management is responsive to fix any issues that arise. Location is decent, but a somewhat long walk to downtown. Kitchen is quite small and not the most functional, but it is manageable. This is a good apartment if you are a single grad-student looking to save money compared to other apartments in town.

Nob Hill 1-bedroom

Love my apartment. It’s near the Yard but much quieter, so convenient location to join in the fun but can also find a quiet break from school related activities. Collection of low brick buildings w 6 units in each. My unit has wood floors. Kitchen and bathroom a little outdated but fine (better than many you’d find in Boston). Management company has a presence on site and they are very helpful and responsive to any needs. Great amount of space for a single, and I have the smaller of the 1-bed floorplans.

Great affordable option

My partner and I wanted a two-bedroom apartment so she could work remotely, and many of the places in Ann Arbor were too expensive for this. Nob Hill has been perfect for us.

Pros:
-Reasonable rent
-Close to Ross
-Free parking
-Very responsive management

Cons:
-Dated/old
-No dishwasher
-Occasional maintenance issues (but always fixed promptly) due to age of building (especially plumbing)

Love it

I found this place through the Ross housing guide, and I love living here. It's quiet, on the west side near the stadium, and a 15 minute walk to school. Management is responsive to maintenance, and they are responsible with packages. Additionally, if you renew your lease, they do 1/2 rent for the summer months so you don't have to find a subletter.

West Side, Best Side

Overall living at Nob Hill has been good. It's about a 15 minute walk from the law school and the neighborhood is generally quiet. We are close to the marching band field, which can be exciting on game days, but also means that you hear all of their practices. The apartment complex is on the older side, some of the cabinets and plumbing are outdated, but our carpets and the stove and fridge were new. In comparison, I would say it is priced fairly. The walls can be a little thin and the floors creak, so if you're a light sleeper, you may have some difficulties.

Worth the hill

My apartment is wonderful, it's about a 15 minute walk from downtown and the law school. 5 minute walk to the stadium, Washtenaw Dairy, and around the corner from a convenience store. Parking is included, cats are allowed for a fee. No utilities are included but the apartment is very well insulated and thus relatively cheap to keep warm in the winter. The management team is very friendly and quick about maintenance requests. I once had them come out to fix a problem I had put in a request for the same day. Never had any problems with pests. They keep the sidewalks clear of snow and maintain the grounds very well. Even the older and non updated apartments have a cute 50s vibe. The only downsides I can think of is the relative smallness of the apartment and the very large hill you have to climb to get to it (but once you get used to it it's not bad). I'm keeping my lease for next year.

Affordable, spacious apartments in a great location

My partner and I love living at Nob Hill for the inexpensive rent (we wanted a two bedroom so she can work remotely from home), excellent location, and very responsive management/maintenance team. Some of the units are "updated" (hardwood floors and slightly less dated kitchens), but we're in a unit with a very basic (though certainly serviceable) kitchen and carpet throughout. There is nothing fancy or luxury about our apartment, and I will admit that I miss having a garbage disposal and dishwasher, but we have been very happy with our choice given our budget and location preferences. It's very close to many other Ross students (very short walk to 618 South Main, the Yard, and other small apartment buildings like ours), a 7-Eleven for basic needs, the Bus, and the Stadium, and it's only a 15-minute walk to Ross. Parking is included but we pay for other utilities (typically around $30/month for water, $60/month for gas & electric, and $40/month for internet). The management and maintenance teams are very quick and responsive, which is one my favorite parts (I know if something goes wrong, and it does occasionally because it's an old building, it will be handled quickly and easily).

Quiet, but a little far

My apartment is pretty nice. Pretty big, full size kitchen, storage in the basement, and parking is included. It's a little bit further away, about a 15-20 min walk depending on weather. However, it's quiet as the area is either grad students or young professionals. Ann Arbor is pretty walkable, but sometimes it's a chore to walk to the bars and restaurants. It's not terrible, but there are definitely apartments closer to things.

I love the Old West Side because it's a quieter neighborhood with parks, trees, single family homes, and neighborhood traditions like the Old West Side Home Tour and the Westside Art Hop. If you're trying to escape from undergrads, I'd highly recommend looking into the Old West Side.

I live at the edge of Old West Side (618 South Main), which is less than a 10 minute walk to the law school (a straight shot up Madison Ave). Although Old West Side doesn't have a lot of restaurants or bars, it's only a 7 minute walk to all of the downtown restaurants and bars. Old West Side is home to some of my favorite places: Washtenaw Dairy, Jefferson Market, and Argus Farm Stop. There's also plans to put in a new brewery on First Street.
Great for walking dogs, with sidewalks everywhere. I also feel very safe in my neighborhood and have walked to/from home late at night. It's close to some downtown restaurants but relatively far from places like Skeeps.
Pretty social area as a ton of MBAs live around Hill/Main and it is close to the Bus/stadium, which is great for game days. A 10-15 minute walk to Ross and 10-20 minute walk to downtown AA. However, not much in terms of restaurants, bars, shops, fast food etc. that is in immediate area.
It is a bit of a walk to Ross (12) but I don't mind it. There aren't a ton of restaurants close by, but the 7-11 and gas station have any little things you might need, and you can walk about 5-10 minutes to get to all of the great things on Main street/downtown.
The neighborhood is very family friendly. The famous Washtenaw Diary is right next door -- just be careful not to over-do it.
Primarily residential area that is near the stadium. I walk to other parts of Ann Arbor when I am looking to go out.
The area is pretty residential. It's close to the Big House but not close to a lot of eateries. Downtown is 1 mile away so it's close but it's not close enough for something you want to pick up quickly. More eateries are closer to Ross, half a mile away. Overall, though, the neighborhood is great, not surrounded by a lot of fraternities (only one) so the noise is minimal.
A lot of Rossers living in these area. Close to all the areas we usually hang around. Staying here for my MBA2 year.
