First of all, I wanted to say that it was my first stay using Airbnb, and I was a bit hesitant about the whole process vs staying at hotel, but the whole process was much simpler and more friendlier than pretty much any hotel. Definitely feels like staying at your buddies place.
The place is really nice, clean, and super cozy. Room was just like in the pictures and as described. Ginger is really friendly too! Made me wish I had my own dog to greet me when I come home. Ben and Tori were really nice too, although I didn't get a lot chance to chat with them. I arrived when they were away, so their friend Bryan has greeted us and showed around. Overall, the stay was nice and the neighborhood is ok too. Super easy access to 376 and Regent Square. Would definitely suggest to try it out. If you are visiting over the winter time, make sure you have some warm clothing to wear at home as the room tends to get a bit chilly when it's cold outside (which is actually nice in order to get some good night sleep), but bumping up the thermostat couple degrees up fixes it though.
Ben and Tori were very gracious; we were on different schedules over the weekend so didn't see much of each other. Lovely home and neighborhood, very comfy (and tall!) bed. Nice breakfast breakfast fixings offered including, backyard fresh eggs!
This was our second time staying here and, no surprise, it was a great experience. Clean, comfortable, hassle free, friendly puppies to keep you company, and eggs fresh from the backyard. What more can you ask for?
We had a great stay with Ben and Tori. Their home was charming, their dog was a sweetheart (and difficult to say goodbye to), and they were gracious and friendly. Sadly, we didn't have the opportunity to eat any of the bounty of fresh eggs that their chickens produced, but they were a great touch. Highly recommended.
I had a very positive experience staying at Ben & Tori's home, especially since this was my first airbnb stay. I felt very much at home (much nicer than staying at a hotel) - Ben & Tori were welcoming hosts, the house and room felt cozy, I was having breakfast outside on the patio, and playing ball with their dog. For breakfast there are some items available in the fridge, plus eggs from the chicken coop in the backyard. For lunch/dinner there are some restaurants in less than a 5 minutes drive, in addition to the numerous options across the city. In the room you will hear some noise from the nearby highway (which makes it very accessible by car, by the way), but since it's a steady sound it was more "white noise" and didn't affect my sleep. The area feels safe, and I was comfortable leaving the car for some day trips by bike or bus. (the bus stop to downtown is just a 1-minute walk away). I would definitely recommend this to others.
Ben and Tori were wonderful hosts and provided everything I could have asked for. The entire house as well as the room I stayed in was clean and welcoming and made me feel home away from home. This was my first airbnb experience and I couldn't have had a better one.
The location is perfect, especially if you got a car, since it's only a ten to fifteen minute drive downtown. Ben was extremely helpful by recommending places to go and see to me as well as borrowing me his Pittsburgh city guide. Their dog Ginger is the sweetest and loved to play ball with me. I would definitely stay with them again. Highly recommended.
Ben and Tori were great. I was put at ease as soon as I arrived. Upon meeting Ben, I was then introduced to Ginger, who is a friendly and loveable dog. After playing fetch with Ginger, I checked out the chickens, who had laid a couple of eggs. I really enjoyed my stay at the Swissvale Garden Room. The room is as described and very clean and artsy. The neighborhood is quiet and within ten to fifteen minutes of driving to all of the attractions I was looking to go to. Ben helped me look up a few attractions on his computer, and assisted me with navigating Pittsburgh. I would definitely recommend this listing to my Airbnb compadres, as well as my friends who are not participating in Airbnb, yet.
Ben and Tori were cheerful and accommodating hosts and they made us feel right at home. Because of our schedule, we didn't get to talk to them as much as I would have liked, but when we did they were always very friendly and generous. Their dog, Ginger, is so sweet and she made it seem not so bad that we were away from our own pets for a long weekend. The house itself was beautiful and clean, and our bed was the most comfortable I've slept on away from home. The neighborhood is quiet and there was plenty of parking available on the street. All in all, it's the perfect location for trips to Pittsburgh's east end or to conventions in Monroeville.
Great room. Hosts were very kind. Breakfast was provided. Fresh fruits, muffin, coffee. Some noise from nearby highway. It didn't bother me but some people may not like the noise. Great experience.
Ben and Tori were great. The house was welcoming and comfortable, as well as decorated prettily. They shared their yummy free range eggs with us, and have a sweet dog. :-) It was in a great location for getting to downtown easily. We accidentally made a mistake in our reservation, but were able to get it fixed and stay an extra night. We hope to stay here again on our next visit. Thanks for a great first Airbnb experience!
Ben and Tori spent a brief evening at our AIRBNB while attending a wedding. Both stayed in great communication while making their reservation and arriving. I was unable to check them in personally but with out question they messaged me and let me know that they had arrived and everything was well. They were both very courteous, respected our house rules and kept things tidy and clean. We would welcome them back any time.
We loved hosting Ben for his quick Vancouver visit. He was easy to communicate with, punctual and treated our apartment as if it were his own. Very neat and tidy. We recommend Ben highly to the airbnb community and look forward to hosting him again!
It was a pleasure to meet and host Ben! He came for a conference and spent almost a week with us. 5 star guest! He is friendly, polite and respectful. He kept the apartment extremely clean and organized! We strongly recommend Ben to any host and he is always welcome! We wish you the best! Livia & Erico
Ben and his partner stayed at my house while I was away so I didn't have the pleasure of meeting them but Ben was an excellent communicator before and during his stay and I heard no issues from the person helping me host AirBnB while I was away.
Although I didn't get to see them often as they were out and about, Ben and company were easy to host. Communicated well about arrival.
Benjamin was a great guest and we had a wonderful day! Very nice, helpul and clean.
We would have liked to know him better. Hopefully we will have the chance to meet him again.
It was very nice to welcome Benjamin, who was a friendly host and I hope it will give me good news from him.
Benjamin before leaving gave me flowers to thank me, it was obliged to anything that gave me great pleasure.
I hope that all projects will proceed as he wishes he could return and he will always be welcome to me.
They were great guests, friendly, quiet and clean. They even left a couple micro brews in the fridge which I promptly enjoyed. I hope they come back sometime.
Ben and Tori were lovely to host overnight. They were considerate and respectful. I recommend them as guests.
Ben and Tori were great guests, took care of my apartment and left it clean and in great shape! Highly recommended and they're welcome back anytime.
Benjamin is a great host. He is neat, has an eye for design, and is very friendly! His place is conveniently located and has all one needs for a self-sufficient stay. As someone who has stayed at quite a few AirBNB spots, he knows how to host guests.
