Affordable & comfortable stay... easy commute to Downtown & Oakl
Left on 04/15/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | Laurel
My boyfriend and I stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks while major kitchen and bathroom renovations were in progress at our home here in Pittsburgh. We initially considered using an extended stay chain, but this apartment turned out to be in a convenient location for us, and the price was definitely more economical! We were able to catch buses nearby to easily commute to work in Oakland and Downtown, and visiting friends were able to easily find free on-street parking for their car.
When we arrived, the apartment was well stocked with freshly laundered towels and linens, basic shower supplies, a blow dryer, kitchenware, and coffee/tea supplies. The beds were very comfortable and had plenty of pillows. The building's exterior and lobby do have a run-down appearance (the owner's girlfriend said they're planning to paint and install new flooring in the lobby and stairwell later this year)... but the interior and furnishings of the apartment were clean and appeared well-kept. It was definitely in much better shape than most of the apartments I viewed when I recently helped a family member find a long term Pittsburgh rental!
Although the apartment isn't located in the most picturesque part of the city, we felt safe even when walking back from the nearby Shadyside and Highland Park neighborhoods late at night. The area the apartment is located in is a transitional neighborhood, but anyone who's used to being in an urban setting (i.e., with a basic level of street smarts and an awareness of their surroundings) should feel comfortable here.
All in all, we had a pleasant stay, and would definitely recommend this apartment and the owner to others. In fact, we've already made arrangements at the owner's other property, a really cool dome house, for out of town family members to stay there when they visit later this year!
