Alex's place is well situated right outside of downtown Pittsburgh. Me & my girlfriend went to a concert and the venue (Stage AE) was literally minutes away, as well as the Andy Warhol Museum. His place is clean, very cool, and Alex is a very very nice person. I definitely recommend the place for anyone visiting Pittsburgh.
Amazing spot, good location. Alex is a great guy and was very helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended!
Alexander's place is fantastic. It is much more spacious than it appears on the photos, and very well located. I stayed at Alexander's for a night with two friends and my sister. We had a great evening playing darts, foosball and listening to music. The beds were really comfortable and the apartment was clean. Alexander was very helpful and accommodating, I definitely recommend him and his beautiful chalet !
Alex is positively delightful. My friend and I both said we felt like we were good friends with him immediately upon being introduced. I had actually never stayed in a shared Air BnB before, and it was a fantastic experience. The room itself is super cool - really big, peaceful, and private. The house is quite a gem, and that hot tub in the living room is a huge bonus. Location is pretty good - a fifteen minute walk over the bridge to downtown, which was convenient for us. Not the most glamorous of neighborhoods, but you can't beat the proximity to downtown and the price.
I hope to visit Pittsburgh again in the future simply so I can stay here and hang out with our awesome host.
Mr. Sands was a wonderful gracious host. The place is super cool, and exactly as it appears in the photos. We were comfortable and had everything we needed; Alex helped us get where we needed to go and had ideas for us when we asked for advice on food and drinks. The location was quiet, but close to everything we needed in the city. I would definitely come back and would recommend the place to others.
Alex's place is great....looks just as advertised with the added bonus of a Nintendo 64 complete with Mario Kart and Goldeneye. If you're in Pittsburgh, this is a great place to stay, and Alex is a great host.
The place was just as pictured and it was lots of fun. Alex was friendly, laid back and very helpful. He gave us a tour of the city and even brought us up to a great scenic look out spot. Would definitely book again. Thanks Alex!
Very pleased we chose to stay at Alexander's 70's-esque Chalet. He gave us great recommendations of places to go to eat and listen to music. The apartment itself has a ton of character. Will be staying there again on my next trip to Pittsburgh.
Staying at Alexander's place was incredible. We were attending a concert that (email hidden), which is just a quick walk from the location. The apartment was more than we could have expected. Spacious, well appointed, convenient location. The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing a great dinner, the huge deck has a fabulous view of the Pittsburgh city skyline, and plenty of sleeping space to accommodate all of our guests. And Alexander was the ultimate host- he made sure we had everything we needed when we got there, and even offered to give us a ride back from Stage AE after the concert. I can't recommend Alexander's Chalet highly enough. If you're going to be attending an event on the North Side (Pirates game, Steeler's game, concert at any of those places) you should really check out this great pre/post event location.
It was a great stay at Alex's place. He was very accommodating and fun to hang out with. He has a nice place in a great location. I will definitely look him up next time I'm in Pittsburgh.
