Let's start with the good: Location. Great, close to Old Town. Close to the Gold Line. Quiet, pretty street despite the noise from the school across the street during the day. Pool. Clean, usually not busy. Nice to have in the… Full Review ▶

This apartment has recently lost its' onsite manager. Now we are going to be managed, what is being termed "Remotely"! The ad does state the building it is a 'controlled secure building', yet during the daytime hours both front doors are… Full Review ▶

To All, Sadly, this is no longer a good apartment building to make your home at. Since being managed remotely, which is another word for "you're on your own", things have gone downhill for Buena Vista apartments. The only saving grace… Full Review ▶

We've lived at Buena Vista for 2 years and couldn't be happier. We are moving at the end of our lease but it's only because it makes more sense financially. Otherwise, Cheryl in the management office has been nothing but wonderful.… Full Review ▶

We have lived at Buena Vista for more than three and a half years and couldn't be more content. The pool is always sparkling clean; as is the rest of the building. I frequently join my husband on his business trips… Full Review ▶

This place smells like urine all over the halls, and and the staff just talks sweetly AT FIRST to talk you into renting the place and once you do, their job is done. They have your signature, your money and that… Full Review ▶

I really like it here! I work in downtown L.A. I can leave my car at home and walk a block and a half to the Metro Station ($6 a day! roundtrip). Upscale neighborhood. My only complaints: 1. Gym could use… Full Review ▶

I highly recommend the Buena Vista Apartments. I've lived here for 4 1/2 years, and have had a very good experience. The location can't be beat. It's very convenient. It's only a short walk to Old Town and the Paseo, and… Full Review ▶

Beware of management in this building! She talks a LOT about the little things that she does which gives an impression about how much work she does. she does NOT. NOT RECOMMENDED!!!! Full Review ▶

CON'S I've lived here for a few months now. I have been disappointed with the management response to my requests since the lease has been signed. It takes at least one e-mail, a phone call after 24 hrs, and then a… Full Review ▶

The complex just painted our building and gave us new central AC. They work really well and i save alot on my electricity. I've lived here when it rained really hard and the gagage did not flood. I think they replaced… Full Review ▶

Way over priced. The garage floods every time it rains or someone flushes a toilet. My air conditioner smells like a swamp cooler. I know there is mold in the ceiling space. Other tenants have moved because of mold. Maintainance man… Full Review ▶

Overall a nice place to live-not perfect, but higher than average. A little pricey, but it is Pasadena after all. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The apartments are well constructed and I never hear any of my neighbors. The… Full Review ▶

The complex is fairly quiet. Excellent location (4 blocks from Paseo, close to Old Town). The hallways are generally stale and lack ventilation. The garage has flooded each time there is a big storm. The landlord, AIMCO, is a publicly-traded national… Full Review ▶

A lot of trendy apartment communities are popping up all over Pasadena, and are very nice as long as you don´t mind paying $1800/month for a studio. As far as apartment complexes go, Buena Vista may not be the nicest, but… Full Review ▶

Honestly, my husband and I moved in to the property when he was attending Pasadena City College in 1999-2000 and we had a very enjoyable experience there. The manager was very thorough with us on orienting both of us both with… Full Review ▶
