A Good Value

  • 4 of 5

I came to Pittsburgh to watch a 3 game series with the NY Mets. I looked long and hard for a place to stay within walking distance of PNC Park. The hotels were grossly over priced. This was my first VRBO experience. It's actually a 3 story home that I'm guessing was built in the 1800's but of course it's been completely modernized and it was roomy & comfortable. I read all the previous reviews. Yes - the stairs are steep. Both sets. But I would disagree that it's a "bad" neighborhood. Blue collar for sure, but all three ball games were at night & I had no fear walking to & from the Park. 20 minutes each way. I never did meet or speak with the owners. Not because they weren't attentive but because it wasn't necessary. A few text messages back & forth was all that was required. I read somewhere there is no TV. That's not true either. They have cable in the living room. It was a good price for what I got. A good value.

Great location

The apartment was clean and well equipped. It is within walking distance of many popular attractions. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond throughout the booking and rental process. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice quiet and convenient spot.

  • 4 of 5

I come to PITTSBURGH every year for the tattoo convention. I always end up spending way too much money on over priced hotels. This was so much nicer and convenient to the convention. The place was very quiet and cozy. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because there were half drinking coffee cups left behind from the previous guest. All in All a great place to stay if your visiting Pittsburgh. I hope to stay here again when I come next year. Thanks for an great visit to steal city!

Great place and friendly host!

  • 4 of 5

If you want to be near downtown and what Pitt has to offer, this is a good place! Clean and spacious. I would have given 5 stars but the stairs are a workout. This is not a knock on the house, I realize all the homes in the area have multiple sets of steps. Being from Fla w/ no steps was different.

I seen a review complaining about the area. NOT true! Actually most of the area are employees of the nearby hospital and business commuters to town. The area is all being renovated and quaint.

Comfortable, spacious, charming.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in Pittsburgh, highly recommend staying at this apartment when visiting Pitt. This large, charming 1bedroom is tucked away in a rustic old home in North Side of Pitt. Lots of great restaurants and pubs nearby, some good parks to walk thru, and a nice coffee shop around the corner. The apartment is even nicer than the pictures and description. For our 3 day visit, we really felt at home.

Clean, quiet, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We found our safe little parking space at Elena's Homeaway house in December for our trip to Pittsburgh for a conference downtown. The neighborhood has some houses that look a bit derelict, but overall it is a neighborhood on the rebound. We walked every day to the free T-station to town, or the closer nearby bus stop, even at night and had no problems. Inside the house, the steps are steep, so we were just careful going up and down. (It is not suitable for handicapped walkers.) The main kitchen area/living room level are comfortable and nicely appointed. The kitchen was well stocked. I do a lot of cooking for my husband's allergies. The central stove island was real nice to use. The top floor had the bedroom and the lovely bathroom. I loved the walk-in huge tiled shower! The bathroom was beautiful. We had a lovely time there. Everything was spotlessly clean. The clean hardwood floors were good for my husband's allergies. We went to the Pittsburgh Holiday Pops concert, the Phipps Conservatory, the International Classrooms at the University, and other great museums in town. It's an easy walk to the fantastic National Aviary (try to get to that.) It was delightfully quiet for sleeping at night. Since we live on a farm, going to cities can often be too noisy for us but this property is set on the alley side of the main road, so it was great for sleeping. If we come back to Pittsburgh, we would definitely stay here again.
