What a wonderful place to be ! Karl greeted us with so much kindness. Recommended a great restaurant 1 block away . Enjoyed his company over coffee on the front porch. Shared great stories! The place was absolutely clean...no a speck of dirt anywhere. We are going to visit him again. We are pretty picky when it comes to where we stay ....and this place is an A+ Stay there and enjoy !
This handsomely restored mansion is a beautiful look into a world gone by. The owners are welcoming, and helpful with tips about the area and do all they can to make sure you enjoy your stay. The room I was in (originally the master bedroom) was very spacious and comfortable with views out over a local park. The Inn is central to but not in downtown Pittsburgh. It is part of a beautiful historic district- hence the name. Also close are the National Aviary, The Warhol Museum and Pittsburgh’s two stadiums.
Much better than a hotel. We stayed in the Executive Suite which required a two story climb with our bags. But the room was wonderful - living area with seating for 5, full kitchen w/dish washer, king bed and nice bath. We had friends in one night. They raved about the house. Karl and Jeff are wonderful hosts. Parking could be tricky but we had plenty of space on the street all 4 days. Few options for food within walking distance. However that would be my only complaint. Great value. Bed was great - wonderfully quiet at night.
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. This place is very charming. We stayed in Mrs.. Boggs room. The room is very spacious and very clean. Carl is one of the owners who is very personable and can tell you everything about the area. Jeff is the other owner who makes the best chocolate chip cookies. The Inn is at a great location. We parked our car and never moved it until we left. You can either park in front on the street or there is parking for a few cars in the back. I definitely recommend this Inn.
We had a lovely time at this unique inn. Within walking distance of so many places, our one night stay allowed us to only scrape the surface of Pittsburgh, Lots of charming row houses to walk by. We also walked past the baseball stadium to get to the Andy Warhol Museum. Very helpful hosts. We’d stay again.
For a weekend trip to Pittsburgh for games at PNC Park and Heinz Field, we booked one night at the Inn on the Mexican War Streets. I was really just looking for something affordable within walking distance of the stadiums, but the Inn ultimately offered us a delightfully charming stay far beyond expectations. Free streetside parking in front of the hotel was a good start, and we were greeted warmly by Karl, one of the owners, including a thorough tour of the first floor. Our mini-suite was lovely and quaint, not especially spacious but filled with comfortable furniture and interesting features. The bathroom was well appointed, with a great shower. The bed was comfortable, and the A/C unit cooled the room in a jiffy. In the morning, we explored the downstairs areas more thoroughly, enjoying a simple continental breakfast in the old cigar lounge, lounging for a few hours in the lovely sitting room, and staying out of the rain on the comfortable porch. Karl and Jeff were gracious to let us hang around the place hours after we checked out when our plans went awry. And I couldn't have been any more delighted than to spend time in this gorgeous beauty from a bygone era of architecture and city life. I don't typically travel in the B&B scene and have become accustomed to the amenities of modern hotels. But you can be sure that I'll be checking out the Inn on the Mexican War Streets the next time I visit Pittsburgh. It's a marvelous mixture of grandeur and luxury, mixed with comfort and functionality. We were delighted by our stay!!
I met up with friends who were also in Pittsburgh for the first time. If possible, I prefer either boutique hotels or B & Bs when travelling. This charming inn turned out to be perfectly located, walking distance to PNC park, the aviary, the Warhol museum, Germantown, and is right across from a lovely park. We were greeted by Karl who was very hospitable and knowledgeable about the city. The mansion is charming and comfortable with a lovely porch and common areas. We eventually met Jeff who was also very pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying there again when in Pittsburgh.
Sadly, we were very disappointed with our stay! The Inn is riding on faded glory and looks nothing like it's website page. The innkeepers were very friendly, but, obviously very eager to retire and sell! The extreme clutter covered by a layer of dust, coupled with the smell of mold and mildew was most unwelcoming. So Sad!!!
My husband and I recently spent two nights at this inn over the Easter Holiday Weekend. The proprietor was welcoming, and was eager to share the beauty and history of the home with us. We stayed in Mr. Bogg's room, which faces the street and a lovely park. There was a spectacular view of the city from the room, but the leaves had not come out on the trees, and I'm fairly certain that the skyline will no longer be visible once they do. Parking was right outside the front of the building. Breakfast was continental, but you could make your own waffles if you chose to do so. There were fresh baked cookies set out in the dining room and available anytime during the day. Since the room was on the street, it was noisy at night, something to consider if you are a light sleeper, but since the room does stand at the front of the house, it is isolated from most of the rooms, being adjacent to only one. We found the neighborhood to be quite safe, although one should obviously be practical when walking anywhere in the area in regards to surroundings. We actually walked around the corner to an Irish Pub for dinner upon the recommendation of our host. It was a very entertaining and delicious experience.
My parents and I were in Pittsburgh to see a Pirates game. We decided upon the bed and breakfast called The Inn on Mexican War Streets. The Inn is actually an old Victorian Mansion owned and operated by a male couple. The couple are very friendly and easy to speak to. Their love of this Inn is definitely noticeable. The Inn is within walking distance of the PNC Park where the Pirates play. The PNC Park is south of the Inn next to the river with the Allegheny Commons Park West between them. There is parking on the street at the Inn but is city controlled (not owned by the Inn). I would stay here again if I ever find myself in Pittsburgh.
