I am not usually one to write reviews, but had an overall horrible experience with Altamira Apartments. I want to share my experience to ensure others do not need to go through it. Positives: It is a new building, therefore it has a sterile appearance if… See More

We have lived at Altamira for the better part of 4 years and have loved living here. The management and maintenance team have always been helpful and responsive to any request we have had. The facilities are clean and well kept.

Management is unresponsive and non accommodating unless you cozy up to them. The staff make no effort to assist tenants unless they are "friends" with them. I didn't realize it was part of my lease to befriend the management in order to receive service. I moved… See More

I enjoyed the time I spent at Altamira Apartments. I'd recommend it if you're looking for a good location in West Seattle. PROS - My apartment had nice fixtures, a spacious walk-in closet and good natural light - It was quiet and the location is hard… See More

WAY OVERPRICED! Shop around. You can get a 2 bedroom in the same neighborhood with the same amenities PLUS balconies for what you pay for a SMALL 1 bedroom at Altamira. The gym equipment never works correctly. The fire alarms have gone off 3 times in… See More

This apartment complex is in a great location and it is easy to walk to numerous restaurants and shops. However, the management team is fair at best and the complex needs to hire a regular cleaning crew for the common areas and to address the smells… See More

So, so, SO noisy there. There is a fire station a block away, traffic noise, and for some reason an incredible amount of horns honking since the liquor store moved in. The building has issues as one could expect but the management communication is very poor.… See More
