Could be better
This is the perfect building if you want a quick walk to the metro, great restaurants and outdoor space. The common areas are well maintained and the location is great: just a bus away from the White House or friendship heights. The service however is lacking. Staff, can be extremely rude, and occasional bugs infestation especially during the summer. Best for American University students. Other than that, it is quite pricey.
Pretty good for the price
I've been here for about 9 months now. The free lot parking is convenient, and so is the gym and convenience store. The staff is okay, not great. If you get a package, be prepared for them to keep it for a few days before you can actually pick it up. The price is reasonable for the location, but the metro isn't very close. I haven't had any major issues with this place.
The Berkshire is at a major bus stop going downtown and to metro stations. It has a convenience store, take out restaurant, WiFi lounge, state of the art gym, 24 hour concierge which provides cleaning services. Package delivery is ongoing and announced by email. Work orders are usually completed the day of the request. The staff is pleasant courteous and professional. I have lived there for 15 years.
Location is amazing at the Berkshire if you plan to attend American University. The only qualms that I have are with the staff. They are polite but there was one occasion in which I was attempting to get in contact with the management company and it was very hard to get their attention. The units themselves are quite nice and the kitchens are newly renovated so that's cool too. Overall, I would say it's worth putting on your short list if this is the area you would like to be in.
Berkshire Sign Of Convenience & Times
Conveniently located in the NW sector of DC, minutes above Georgetown, minutes away from Virginia via Chain bridge and close to the MD line. Berkshire Apartments set a good standard for modern, urban living. This upscale Highrise Apartment complex has been noted for privacy and as secured by having Homeland Security as it's neighbors up the street. Surrounded by woods, formerly a part of Rock Creek Park you can walk out to a family of Deer. American University is also a neighbor with students as residents also. Currently upgrading and remodeling, I believe Berkshire, a Gables comlex will be talked about in the best way after viewing the new excersize room, laundry, indoor parking and convenience store. I am a resident of a studio apartment and it is great for my lifestyle and needs.
Making improvements, but not enough for cost
I've lived here two years and I'm getting out. As one of the more reasonable apartments near American University, this is a decent place to live as a student. It's cheaper than the dorm and not much farther away from campus. However, while here you'll still feel like you're paying too much and getting too little, especially if you start to consider other neighborhoods. Roaches have been a consistent problem. In spring/fall the air and heat switch over always makes for a miserably hot/cold week. They've been updating some things, the new gym and convenience store are nice. The work comcast has been doing for months in the early mornings has been annoying. And they're planning on renovating all of the hallways soon, which is much needed but will be loud I'm sure. Thin walls, thin ceilings, no concern for people being loud on property late at night. Can never open blinds because my whole apartment would be in full view of everyone. If you're a student and just want off campus on a budget, this is your best bet but otherwise I'd look to other neighborhoods. The prices for here are too high and the quality should be better for the cost.
Functionable, dorm-style living
It's not the worst place to live, but it's definitely not the best. They're eager to get you in the door, but they'll do their best to ignore you once you're in. Service requests take a minimum of 2-3 days... and that's IF you label it as an emergency. The building is a de facto dorm for AU, which is good if you're actually a student. While the kids aren't supposed to be loud after 10 PM, don't be surprised if they "forget" that quiet hours exist. The gym is decent, and the mini-mart is expensive, but convenient. Parking is somewhat limited, but there's a bus stop right outside the front door, and it's only a 20 minute walk to the Tenleytown Red Line stop. In fact, it's within walking distance to plenty of stores... grocery & otherwise. Unless you're a student, you probably won't want to stay for more than a year or two. But it's a decent enough starter location.
The berks: the perfect storm of the elderly and college sophomores
I've lived at the Berkshire for about 3 years. It's gone through a lot of changes both physically and the personnel that run the place, but one thing has not changed; the overwhelming amount of American University students coexisting with the elderly whom have lived in the building forever. The new renovations show much promise for the Berkshire, but there remains a lack of space for parking (especially during the school year.) All-in-all I've enjoyed my time at the Berkshire, and I think the building is only getting better.
Everyone hates on the "Berks". Depressing corridors, some instances of roaches, package issues, etc. But to be honest, I've enjoyed living here. Everyone minds their own business, the staff is usually nice and the layouts and locations of the apartments are convenient. Besides, the management has clearly made an effort to bring improvement: packages can now be picked up all day whereas before it wasn't possible, the convenience store downstairs has rebranded and is now really great, new wiring systems for Comcast wireless and cable have just been installed, and they are painting and replacing the carpets. Overall a solid place to live.
