Recent Bell Partners reviews
Love the apartment and the complex. Older building but updated. Only downside is the building is wood frame and you can really hear the upstairs neighbors.
Bell West End is nice but PRICEY!
I like living at Bell West. It is close to campus, downtown, and ninth street. I like that the building is secure. The only downside is that it is on the higher end of prices for Durham.
Lots of sunlight. Study areas inside/outside. Good gym.
Great Place. Apartments are smaller than 9th street area, but perfect for 1 person
It is a very nice building with new ammenities.
Things are always fixed promptly and the staff is very nice
I've lived in Bell West for four years and love it. The leasing office and maintenance staff are super friendly and responsive, the amenities are very nice, location is great, and the residents are generally more of a mix of young professionals plus some grad students and some families (so great if you don't want to be near tons of undergrads plus want a little separation from classmates on Ninth Street).
Great place to live
My experience has been great so far. The apartment unit is very good, with new appliances. The location, amenities, and maintenance are also great at Bell West End. Two downsides are that the building has only 1 individual study room, and the building is located near a train line, which can be noisy during the night.
I wouldn't live here again
Don't particularly enjoy the people and it was run poorly in the past. Lots of challenges. New management may be better.
Good value and location
You get a lot of the same amenities as the Ninth St apartments, but at a lower cost. You're still really close to that area and walking distance to downtown. It is a little quieter here since you have a mix of students from the different grad schools as well as young professionals. They're quick to respond to maintenance requests and the apartments are spacious with plenty of storage options.
You do pay for valet trash which seems a little unnecessary to me personally. Also wifi and cable are worked into your rent.
My main complaint is the floors seem thin (but not the walls), so I can hear the person above me a bunch. I don't think you'll escape that at a lot of these larger complexes.
Solid value for money near downtown durham!
This is a great option if you want to save 300-700 per month as compared to living near the 9th street area. The total rent included internet, cable, trash pick up outside your door and covered parking. Maintenance is responsive.
Very good for the price
This apartment is in Franklin, so it's about 20min from Belmont. I personally don't think that's bad, especially considering the price of where I live. Franklin is also a great place to live. My apartment is a little smaller than I would like (~750ft^2) , but it's not as bad as a lot of Nashville apartments I've seen. They also have different sizes available. Amenities are nice as well. There are some families that live here, if that's something you care about
Very convenient location - <10 min to school, across the street from Harris Teeter grocery store, some restaurants are within walking distance, the adjacent neighborhood is very nice with great running trails, and I-40 is not far for commuting spouse. The value for the property is fair as most of the units have been renovated within the last 3 years.
Solid, Affordable option close to shopping center
Thus far I've really liked living at Bell Meadowmont. The communal facilities are nice- great pool and grill area with a lot of seating, gym is small but has the essentials, friendly staff. Staff is prompt when addressing maintenance issues. It's in a great location- easy access to a great walking path, right across the street from Meadowmont shopping center (restaurants, Harris Teeter, Starbucks, Orange Theory, etc.).
Really nice - Stayed there both years of business school
This property is very well managed. I did not feel like I was living in "student housing" even though there were dozens of other graduate students who live here. Everyone is super kind, courteous, and friendly. I always felt very safe living here.
The grills by the pool are nice too.
Close to school, but it is a bit old
