It seems to be a trend with these people to hire the young and inexperienced. Every time I go to the management office all these kids know how to say is "I'll look in to it and get back to you" unfortunately they NEVER get back… See More

As has been echoed in other reviews, this building has many fantastic amenities. To highlight a few that make the rent worth it: -Powerful AC you don't need to pay for -Pool (when it's open... ) -Parking in brookline, at any price, is a godsend. -Renovated… See More

If you take only one thing from this review, it should be that the management staff will flat-out neglect any problems. I have lived at the Barclay House for 4 years, and in that time I have seen many residents and members of the management staff… See More

This building was so NOT LUXURY. The bad management, the poor finish, the renovation noise, the no airconditioning till June 15th rule - I have no idea why they called it luxury. Barclay was a plain RIP-OFF for what it had to offer. That roof-top pool… See More
