Really convenient, very Pittsburgh
The renovation is decent (but really needs blinds on windows - we involuntarily watched our neighbor eat a salad), and the street is terrible (steep cobblestone with lots of trash and poor repair, courtesy of college students I'm sure), but it's super convenient to Oakland and the university. Lack of a parking permit was another downside but wasn't hard to work around. The shower in the basement, where you can also find a door to a concrete vault on a tiny alley, was very Pittsburgh.
I'd stay again.
Affordable & Convienient
5 guys stayed here for the Steelers game, the location is very close to Pitt University and lots of good places to eat within walking distance, a short 3.2 mile Uber or bus ride into downtown. The only reason I don’t give this place 5 stars is the parking is on a steep hill and cobblestone street, you must be very careful parking. Otherwise this home is excellent and met our needs. I would stay here again.
Dont let the pictures fool you.
It was very hot the weekend when I arrived. When I got to the home the first thing I noticed was that it did not have central air. It was very muggy inside. All the rooms minus the kitchen and living rooms had portable A/C's on wheels. That made it a little cooler and bearable, but it took a while to cool. The kitchen and living room were to warm to be in to watch TV. There is no cable tv or antenna, just ROKU.
The bed sheets and protectors had been slept in and had hair in them. I need to take them all off to wash and dry before them before we slept in the beds. I couldn't find the towels all of them were in the dryer.
The stairs to the upstairs bedrooms and the stairs to the basement were the 2nd bathroom is, are very steep. So you must be very careful if your elderly or have any children There is no handrails.
The place could have been a lot cleaner, but I guess the cleaning people don't do a very good job. The cobblestone roads are very bumpy and on a very steep street. The street is made up of mostly college kids.
There is zero place to park. We uber'ed everywhere we went. Over all we wasnt there very much since we were at games and sight seeing. We just slept there but it just wasnt very comfortable and cramped.
The last night we decided to stay at a Marriott. I recommend Shadyside Inn in Shadyside, that was nicer and easier to walk and get to places.
Good option, but not the value I expected.
Great interior, good location. Amneties not as expected. Should be more clear on lack of central air and provide instructions on how to work the TV.
Charming Location, Great House
This property was in a great location and included every amenity needed for a comfortable stay. The owners were very prompt in their responses and kept the house orderly for guests. Overall, we take a great experience staying here and exploring the city of Pittsburgh!
