Hey all, you guys have helped me out a couple times in the past, so thanks for that.

I have a list of apartments that I'm interested in, maybe you guys can give me some more advice than simple online rating sites:

The Boulevard
2440 North Blvd, Houston, TX 77098
yes, looks good

Berkshires on Brompton
7315 Brompton Street, Houston, TX 77025
no, iffffffy

Greenbriar Chateau Apartments
4100 Greenbriar St # 138, Houston, TX 77098
no, expensive, but supposedly good for rice

230 West Alabama
220 W Alabama St, Houston, TX 77006
good ratings, seems very nice

Greenway Gardens
3131 Timmons Ln, Houston, TX 77027

North Boulevard Apartments
2701 North Boulevard, Houston, TX 77098

Parque Del Oro Apartments
8380 El Mundo St, Houston, TX 77054

Greenway Court Apartments
3411 Cummins St, Houston, TX 77027
no, Expensive..

Villa D'orleans Apartments
4055 S Braeswood Blvd, Houston, TX 77025

If you guys have any advice about these complexes please let me know, they are all in my price range for a 1 bd apartment. + they are pretty close to Rice, I have a car and don't want to drive more than 15 - 20 min to get to school. And they all seem like the area is nice (?).

I just moved to Houston recently (I'm also a Rice student), but I worked with an apartment locator, who recommended the Greenway/Upper Kirby area to me. She recommended I stay away from the Med Center, saying that they were a lot of pricy and cheap options, but not much in the middle of the road. I was also steered away from both Villa D'orleans Apartments and Parque Del Oro Apartments as well, and I ended up signing a 6 month lease at Greenway Gardens (the ability to have a 6 month lease, with only an extra $10 fee per month, was a big bonus, as was the W/D). Take this with a grain of salt, since I'm new, but so far I've been very satisfied here; the apartment is nice, the complex is quiet, parking is fine, and the area seems both very convenient for shopping, errands, etc. The drive to Rice is about 10-15 minutes. I hope this helps!

I know this is an old post but I was wondering if you remembered why you were steered away from Villa D'orleans Apartments. I am moving to Houston from North Dakota and was looking for apartments down there.
