Just As Advertised....
The studio was just as described..... Clean with good access to most of Pittsburgh. I was in town for PITT Homecoming and the Steelers-Falcons game which put me close to where I needed to go. One item which needs attention is to have an iron and ironing board onsite. I brought this to the attention of the owner and he bought a brand new steamer and placed it in the unit while I was out. Thank goodness I had most of my outfits ironed prior to arrival or it would have been very unpleasant. It is a short walking distant to restuarants, shops, etc... A very quiet neighborhood.
Simple, cheap, just right for us.
The apartment was ideally located for what we were doing. It's simple, clean, and basic: decent bed, full kitchen, no problems. It's priced as what it is, a no-frills place to spend the night. If you want luxury, ambience, a scenic view, even a TV, pay more and go elsewhere. We thought it was great.
Thank you for loving our suite. Really appreciated!
Nice looking, but very unsanitary due to mold.
When first entering the apartment, it matched the pictures on the site so I was happy with that.
When it cam time to settle down for bed, I realized there was a problem.
The pull out sofa-bed was covered in mold and smelled of mildew.
Since we had a long drive in and no where else to stay, I put the kids in the beds and slept on the floor on a spare mattress I found in the closet.
The bathroom did not have adequate ventilation and therefore after leaving the shower exhaust fan on all night, our towels were still wet.
I gathered our belongings and left the apartment and did not return.
I emailed the owner pics of the couch and he apologized while offering not to charge me for one of our four nights.
This was a nice gesture, but I could not stay in a place with mold who knows where else.
After contacting VRBO to file a complaint and ask for a refund. I was told they would not be able to refund any $ since the refund was at the owner's discretion.
I then contacted the owner vie email and he apologized again and did offered a refund of 1/2 of all money's for the reservation.
I appreciate the gesture, but would not recommend this place unless it has been properly sanitized and at the very least, a dehumidifier placed in the unit.
My 1 start is for the owners apologetic actions of refunding some $ and stating that the problem would later be rectified.
I would be sure to specifically ask if the moisture problems have been resolved before booking this place!
Comfortable suite that would benefit from a couple of suggestions
The suite provided the basic needs for a few days, including kitchen utensils, items and a basket with cereal, coffee, tea, cereal and 2 bottles of water. There was ample hot water and water pressure for showers. The beds were comfortable. The owner decorated simply and attractively. I contacted the owner re: wireless access and received a response within a reasonable time.
- The path from the parking spaces to the driveway need to be repaired and made safer.
- There is a heating unit in the bedroom, however the main living space was chilly when the temperature hovered around 40 degrees.
- The shower unit was well equipped with shampoo etc. and the handrails were very helpful, however the shelves in the shower unit need to be thoroughly cleaned.
- The molding along the floor in the bathroom was covered with dust.
- The pipes along the ceiling in the bathroom have peeling paint .
