Super hosts are nailing the Pittsburgh game, with this mid-price range apartment being a great example.

This Victorian-era store had a speakeasy hidden inside back in the day, and some say the secret nook is even haunted. The store has been converted into a wide-open Airbnb with light colors, patterned wood flooring and a spa bathroom, quite contrasting to its former days.

Exposed beam and ducting, a spiral staircase, and glistening wood floors are spread amongst four levels of rustic gorgeousness. There’s serious space to stretch out, and while having some distressed touches here and there, the massive home is quite swanky. A bathroom jacuzzi and incredibly scenic rooftop deck add more jaw-dropping appeal to this dwelling that can accommodate twelve guests within its four bedrooms.
The open concept Airbnb reflects all the old structure past of Pittsburgh. Of course, like many apartments in old buildings within the city, this one has been refined and polished, to appeal to both those with modern and historical tastes. The bathroom is hyper luxe with a high-end spa look, and the kitchen is small but equipped for whipping up a gourmet meal. You can walk to a local shop to grab a latte or enjoy your own brewed cup in the homey digs.

Colorful furniture contrasts adorably against white brick walls, and the kitchen certainly does reflect the cool retro vibe the hosts strive for. Great restaurants are nearby, and downtown is a few minutes ride from the dwelling. Three guests can easily stay at this cute little place.
