This Studio (#11) is 'Turn of the Century Shabby'! The studio has no privacy if you're considering travelling with friends or in our case our adult daughter. I advised Shirley we were not happy with there being no privacy as her photos showed glass door dividing the two areas. To her credit Shirley did send around a portable screen which meant we could at least get dressed in privacy without having to use the bathroom. Our daughters sofa bed was so uncomfortable she ended up sleeping on the mattress on the floor. The overall appearance of the studio is old and in disrepair. Cracked floor tiles, wobbly, damaged furniture, an ancient microwave and plumbing that caused the cold tap in the bathroom sink to run scalding hot. The studio is not air conditioned (as noted in the description) so was quite hot inside, the ceiling fan did little to alleviate this. The main bed is really soft and it appears the headboard is not attached properly as every time you leaned on it it would move. As far as location goes, it is great. Short Uber rides took us to downtown, Beale St, the Music Festival at Tom Lee park, Graceland, Sun Studios, Etc. We really enjoyed the music scene. There is a 24x7 supermarket within minutes of the studio and there are numerous restaurants within walking distance, can't vouch for the quality of their food as we didn't use them (some bars we avoided because they have a smoking policy). On our first night, there was a party at the Mexican Restaurant behind us, the noise was so loud Shirley's maintenance man told us to call the police. My Husband went around there to ask them if they would turn the music down and was told it will be over by 11pm, which it was. The walls of these studios are so thin you can hear the people outside as well as upstairs and as the floorboards creak this may cause an issue if you are a light sleeper. We would not return to Belevdere Studios.

This place was exactly what I needed! I am moving to town and needed a place to stay while house hunting. Small and cozy. Loved running in Overton park and walking down to Overton square for dinner! I didn't even realize I'd have weekly cleaning, so that was nice!

The apartment was really nice and cosy. Easy to find, easy to park, easy to access (instead of keys you just get a code to the door, which really makes it easier when you have a group of people). Nothing to complain about, really.

Getting through the check-in process with Shirley was smooth and professional, and the space was just as advertised--sweet and old fashioned and very convenient to the places I was working and visiting. I prefer an apartment to a hotel primarily for access to a kitchen, and I found the kitchen poorly stocked. It was barely workable--two beat up frying pans, no tea kettle, and absolutely nothing by way of cooking supplies. For a three day stay, purchasing salt or cooking oil, for instance, was a real inconvenience. When I asked asked about it I was told coffee was all that was provided. I have rented apartments and cottages for years, and have never found myself in a kitchen so ill-prepared to be used.

I've been a Real Estate Broker for the past 35 years, until I retired at that and started the business of Vacation rentals. I enjoy decorating and redecorating each apartment to make it the very best visit for all of my guests. Shirley & Dan
