I stayed at Felicia and Matt's home for two days/three nights during the last week in August. The apartment was what was advertised, and maybe even nicer: clean, close to the bus stop, and quiet. A perfect stay for my time in Pittsburgh. Loved the map on the bedroom of all the guests from all over the world.
The location is fantastic. Lots of restaurants and places to go within walking distance. Also only a short distance from CMU. The room, bathroom and kitchen are very clean. I was not able to meet the host during the stay (they were out of town). Matt was very helpful to make sure I have everything I need.
Had a great stay. Room and bathroom are very clean, comfortable, and quiet. Matt and Felicia were extremely nice and easy to communicate with. The room is in a great location -- shops and restaurants half a block away, plenty of parking available right on the street.
From the first hello everything was perfect: quick reservation; quick response; affordable; easy communication; no hassle getting the key; quick friendly and concise welcome; not a lot of rules; available for questions; clean and comfortable
We really liked our experience in Pittsburgh at Felicia and Matt's place. There were a lot of stairs up the apartment, so don't plan on bringing heavy baggage up - but overall the location was great. The parking was easy and it was very simple to drive downtown or to reach the universities and museums on the other side of the park. The room was just as advertised and very comfortable.
Very helpful and welcoming!
I would definitely stay there again.
The room and apartment are clean, comfortable and simple. I felt right at home.
Great first experience with airbnb! Matt was flexible with our arrival time. He greeted us at the door and showed what was available to us in the apartment. We turned on the AC window unit right away, and it kept the room cool and comfortable. The location is great, as there is a bus stop right down the street. Free street parking was easy to find and we left our car there for the weekend. The town was crazy for the USWNT v. Costa Rica, but it was fun! Matt even printed our tickets for us! Thank you both so much!
