Hi all,
I'm starting grad school at UC in the fall and I'm looking for a nice two bedroom apartment in the Gaslight area. I've been trying to find reviews of some of the buildings but have found very few. Can anyone recommend a clean, well managed building, possibly with a historic look, in Clifton Gaslight?
Any help is much appreciated!

What's your budget if I may ask?

Around or under $900/month is preferable. I've heard good things about Clifton Colony, not such good things about Tudor Court, Roslyn, and Roanoke- but I like the historic look of buildings like Tudor Court.

Clifton Colony is not gaslight Clifton. Consider gaslight Clifton's epicenter as Telford and Ludlow. Try my friends at Cincinnati Lofts.com

Default re: Clifton Gaslight

There are multiple multi-unit houses in the Clifton Gaslight that are renting. Some are very nice because they have been converted and refurbished. Not sure if you can get a 2 bedroom for 900 but it is possible. A large old clifton house with 3 neighbors might be a more controlled/quieter option than a 20 apartment building. These old houses are extremely solidly built and therefore surprisingly quiet.

You could try http://gaslightproperty.com; they seem to own a lot of the rental places around campus.

If you want, you could live in the building I used to live in. It's directly on the corner of Clifton & Telford, and a 2br is $645 including heat & water. They're nothing special, but the landlord is very nice, lives on site, and responds well to maintenance requests. I lived there for almost 5 years with no real problems.

Clifton and Telford don't actually intersect. If you are suggesting the Delmoor at 3414 Telford, I gave the OP this link:

I'd like to suggest Clifton Square Apartments, which is at the very end of Senator Place. It's a larger complex, more modern than historic. I lived there a few years ago. To me, the main attraction was the secluded location while also being within a short walk to the Clifton/Ludlow shopping area. It's run by Uptown Rentals, which manages several properties around town. Some units have hardwood floors (may be slightly creaky, but that seems common), and some are carpeted. The only downside was a downstairs neighbor who played loud music, but it didn't bother me that much.

There are also smaller complexes on the same street, and more choices on nearby streets such as Brookline, Loraine, Bryant, Telford, etc. (although Telford near Ludlow might get noisy if there are street musicians). It's a nice area for walkers. I agree with the comment about Clifton Colony, it's not in the gaslight, not convenient for walking or bus, and it's on a street that feels more like a freeway exit ramp than a neighborhood. Good luck!

Ah! I meant Telford at Ludlow. I was speaking of the building across the street from Delmoor, where Graeter's is located. City Center is overpriced. Like Hans63 said, there are many other places that are reasonably priced for students on a limited budget.

By the way, you will definitely love the neighborhood. It is lovely and quaint, and I miss it terribly. I didn't own a car for 7 years because everything is within a short walk...
