About this listing
Completely private room and bath in the historic Mexican War Streets of Pittsburgh within walking distance to downtown, PNC Park, Heinz Field, the Mattress Factory, the Warhol, the convention center, and many restaurants and theaters between.
I have a private bedroom and bath available. The room features an antique desk, a new full bed, and a private porch with a comfy couch overlooking a beautiful yard. The room also has a radio alarm clock, a hair dryer, an iron, and an ironing board.
The Crazy Mocha coffee house is a short walk away. This neighborhood was laid out during the Mexican American War, and thus features some really old and beautiful townhomes. My house was built in 1890.
Parking is available in front of the house. The Allegheny Commons Park is a short walk away--great for running or just relaxing by the pond. Beyond the park (a 15 minute walk) are PNC Park, home of the Pirates, and Heinz Field, home of the Pitt Panthers and the Steelers. Downtown is about five minutes beyond.
Other attractions include the Mattress Factory Museum (right around the corner), the Byham Theater (in the park), the Andy Warhol Museum (down by the stadiums), the Children's Museum (in the park), and the National Aviary (in the park).
The immediate neighborhood is very quiet, but there is easy access to buses on Federal Street (50 yards away) and North Ave. The 54 bus is a 35 minute commute to the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.
All I really ask is that you don't do any serious or lasting damage. No smoking inside.
Guests should park in the back and arrive at the back door on the porch. Knock and give me a call/text and I'll be down to let you in. After that you can come and go as you like when you like through the same door.
Let me know if you need any extra towels or pillows or restaurant advice.
My husband and I stayed at Charlie's place for one night during a trip to Nashville. The room was clean, spacious, and homey. We had ample closet space and a comfortable bathroom. Plus - our favourite! - a deck with a comfy couch right outside our door. We loved our stay! Thank you, Charlie.
I was warmly welcomed by Charles. He gave me a tour of the house and my private room for the four days I was there. He gave me some great places to try for dining. He kept me up to date with a couple of small reno projects he was doing. The room was just like I expected and the bed very comfortable. All in all it was an excellent experience, including great internet availability. I would highly recomend Charles and this location especially if you are in Pittsburgh for any games or are just doing all of the museums.
Charles was very kind and helpful. The room was clean and neat, also the bathroom. Great location, only 15 min walk from the PNC park. Highly recommended to people who are planning to visit Pittsburgh.
Room was as described. Charles made us feel welcome and was available, if we needed him. He was good about communication for check-in and gave us privacy. Price was reasonable and would definitely recommend to friends and family to stay here when visiting Pittsburgh.
Everything fine! Charles is a very Hospitable and kind host who really cared for our comfort. Thank you ones again.

About the Host, Charles
I moved to Pittsburgh about two years ago. I've spent time traveling in foreign countries and across the US, and I've benefited from the hospitality of other Air BnB hosts. As far as hosting myself, I'm pretty hands off. You will have your own private bed, bath, and entrance. Looking forward to meeting you and helping you to explore Pittsburgh,
