Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay in Asheville. Your condo was beautiful and the location was perfect. We were able to walk to everything and loved the quiet setting on Church St. We will definitely come back and book your condo again. Thanks and hope to be in touch soon for our return trip.

Wonderful location! Convenient to everything.

We had a great time. Brian emailed a welcome letter that made things very easy and had great local information. You will not be disappointed if you stay!

Super Location! Nice building!

  • 4 of 5

The location of the condo was spectacular. We were right in the middle of everything. There was a concert one night we were there, and the music drifted upstairs in a most pleasant manner.

We were able to get parking right behind the building over the weekend. Passport Parking is the local parking app, and zone 119 is right at the Altamont.

The bedroom is very full with the bed so there is limited ability to unpack your bag. It's not a dealbreaker but something to know!

I would suggest that having shampoo and soap in the bathroom would be nice. Other units that I have rented in Asheville have that.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! One quick comment - the units are supposed to have soap and shampoo, including extras available in the hall cabinets. It's possible that they were on back order and we ran out while waiting. Sorry about that.

Awesome location, great view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and it was perfect for us. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room but it was quiet at night, the bed was comfortable and the balcony view was great! We needed an iron at one point and it was provided before we got back that afternoon. The door and entry were all secured and the spacious elevator was awesome for bringing luggage in and then back out when we left. Will definitely use again on our next visit! We parked at the aloft garage as a lot of the lots adjacent to the condo had weird hours and honestly we couldn't figure them out.

Great downtown location, not great otherwise.

  • 2 of 5

We rented this unit because my runner husband wanted to be downtown to participate in the Asheville Half Marathon. The condo is adjacent to the Altamont Theater. The unit is pretty bare bones, small, spartanly furnished. Fairly clean. VERY noisy. The loud music from the theater runs until 11. The walls between the units are not well insulated and neighbor noise is quite high. The thermostat was set to 80 degrees when we arrived and we had to plug in lamps, etc. Sheets and towels, some dishware provided. Guest should bring everything else, including iron, ironing board, hangers, paper towels and Kleenex (TP was provided). The outdoor furniture is dirty with bird poop.

Oh, and the owner needs to vacuum the bathroom ceiling air intake vent because it is disgustingly filthy. And add another bedside light. One is pretty chintzy.

All in all, the only redeeming feature of the Altamont is the location. Next time we'll pay the higher rate to stay in one of the hotels.

Owner's Response: This is somewhat surprising. For a downtown apartment, it's a very reasonable size. It's quite a bit larger that a hotel room and has a full kitchen. If that was not large enough, we do have larger 2BR units that you could have booked. We're very clear about the music downstairs and the curfew, but sound has never been an issue on the third floor. Many guests have had children on the third floor with no problems. We feel like that ending by 11:00 is very reasonable. Generally people who stay with us are out on the town past 11:00, or often down at the show. The walls are actually pretty well insulated. They are made of heavy duty sheet rock that has a thin layer of lead in it, plus foam insulation. In any case noise travels in an old building and we ask guests to be respectful of others. Sometimes they are not. We do set the thermostats high enough to not run the A/C when we don't have guests. Asheville is a weekend town so cooling empty units for 5 days is very wasteful. They cool pretty quickly when turned down. There are supposed to be ironing boards and irons in the units, and full set of hangers. Apparently they were taken at some point. We maintain an inventory of spare items, so had you reached out we would have been happy to provide replacements. There is a King bed in the bedroom. The room was sized for a queen bed, so there isn't room for a second table and light. People prefer the larger bed over a second table. We have a number of guests who stay with us on a regular basis and enjoy what we have to offer. We're very sorry that we are not the place for you. Perhaps a hotel is better suited for your needs.

Good location and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The location was convenient, We were able to walk everywhere in downtown which is exactly what we wanted to do. The unit was quiet (at least until the AC came on - that was noisy). The decoration and furnishings were clean and modern. The unit has a Keurig single serving coffee maker which is appreciated when one person wakes earlier than the other. We didn't do any cooking, but we did eat take away from Tupelo Honey when their wait for a table was over an hour. That was a nice option.

There were a few negatives. There is no chest of drawers or any place to put clothes. We lived out of suitcases that were elsewhere in the unit. We found it curious that there was a washer /dryer, but nowhere to put clean clothes. As the bed takes up most of the BR so there was no room for other furniture. Also the BR lamps have dim bulbs making it impossible to read in bed.

There was no DVD player even though it it is advertised.

The pictures that show the outdoor view are misleading at best. Looking out the window we mainly saw the run-down top of the building directly behind. Standing on the balcony you could see the views in the picture. There was no chairs for sitting on the balcony.

We were contacted by the owner asking for our feedback for improvement.

Overall we did enjoy the stay and would probably stay again - bringing our own music player.

Owner's Response: We were unaware that the DVD player was missing, it sits behind a sliding door. The HDMI cable was sill there, but no player. After we heard from this renter it was gone, we went out a bought a new one. Many times groups will rent multiple units and outdoor chairs get moved around. We didn't catch that these chairs were next door. We've added that to the cleaning checklist. The top of our neighbor's building is in the photo, and we took the photo from the deck, not through the window. We certainly don't conceal the fact that it's there. Of course we would love to see something done with the building but the church that owns it does not have the resources to demolish or develop the building. We did find a closet system that has drawers so we're in the process of installing them.

Spent 4 nights at this great place and great location.The listing was accurate, as well as the photos.

The unit was clean,and welcoming.The owner was very nice and gave great recommendations for places to go dine as well as entertainment suggestions. I was traveling alone and felt so comfortable walking back these great "diggs"at night. The street is well lite.I would recommend this property to everyone.

I would recommend The Orange Peel for music and or events. I dined at Limones, Posana,Tupelo Honey

CaCafe, Early Girl Eatery,Bouchon and Chai Pani to name a few All Excellent. Chocolate Lovers must

go French Broad Chocolate Lounge.Also went on Eating Asheville, walking food tour.excellent. Can't

wait to stay at this Citylicious "diggs" again
