If you like loud noise, the smell of pot 24/7, children running around late into the night without any supervision, loud trashy neighbors, passive aggressive management, and damage to your furniture by the maintenance team, this is the place for you. I lived here through the transition from Peakview Apartments to Ardenne Apartments. The management at Peakview did a much better job. All Ardenne cares about is taking care of the exterior (e.g. painting and remodeling). These efforts misguide you on how your actual living experience will be. I thought after college and grad school, my standard of living environment would go up. This place is horrible. I cannot believe how much they charge here for what you get. If this place is your last resort, DO NOT GIVE MANAGEMENT PERMISSION INTO YOUR HOME WITHOUT YOUR PRESENCE. I came home one day to a weird looking mark on my expensive dining room table. It was a decent-sized scratch intentionally filled in with a blue pen. The fact that they tried to hide it was a huge disappointment - the cherry on top of everything else. When I contacted Matt, the Property Manager about the situation, his response SEEMED genuine and concerned. He had some questions of which I responded to and he NEVER got back to me. The fact that the property manager doesn't get back to you and pretends to care sums up the attitude of the management team. The leadership is completely unprofessional and does not exercise any discipline when necessary. So if you are loud and obnoxious, let your kids run around without any supervision, and like that management let's you get away with all of these things, this is the perfect place for you - TRASH.

One of the only things I miss about Denver is this apartment!! Not only was the price reasonable, especially for a luxurious apartment (as the price of living in Colorado is increasing like crazy), but it was beautifully laid out and cozy. I only had one maintenance issue, I put in a request online and it was taken care of immediately. I see all these reviews about loud noises and the smell of pot but honestly I never had any of these issues when I lived there. I would recommend this place to any of my friends/family that are looking for a reputable apartment complex. The only time people feel the need to review is to complain, so I will share my POSITIVE experience! Thank you, Ardenne team for the wonderful experience! Much appreciated :)

I have been a neighbor of this complex for many years. In that time I have had more garbage fly into my yard than I care to remember. But I did not address with them because it was petty. But it seems that the management takes great offense at petty things when it suits them. I am having an old fence rebuilt before I move away and some random timber was left on a small hill on their side of the property. The timber damaged nothing and did not block traffic on foot or with a car. Yet the property manager came over to my house and rang the doorbell three times in about 20 seconds. He then shouted at me demanding that the wood be moved at once and that if any damage happened to his sprinkler system that I would pay for it even though I was not the one to “damage” it. He then went on a rant on how he was going to tow the van of the fencing crew and was nothing but toxic before he stomped off in a rage. I am moving away from them shortly it can not be soon enough as far as I am concerned. This is how their management treats their neighbors, people they have no power over and have no contract with. I dread to think on how they treat their tenants. If you are looking for a place to live where you are respected by the owners then I recommend you avoid Ardenne Apartments like the plague. But that is just my opinion and experience. Cavete emptor, buyer beware.

I have lived in this complex for 18 months, and since the new company has taken over things have gone down hill. The complex that used to be quiet family oriented when I first moved in has now become a place where teenagers are out until past midnight, laughing, talking and smoking weed. I have had my bike vandalized while locked up on the bike rack outside of my building. The office staff is friendly, the maintenance man is friendly, but the organization itself is a joke. I cannot get a hold of anybody in my building over the phone to discuss a maintenance issue, I am only referred to incompetent phone operators that cannot answer my question or give me any other solutions. I cannot wait for my lease to be up. I highly recommend living elsewhere!

The apartments required my nephew to submit a $35 money order before they would even consider his application. Then they looked briefly at his application, said he didn't earn enough money to even qualify, and handed him back his money order, which was payable to them. My nephew now has to jump through hoops to cash his own money order to get his money back. Just beware when you apply.
