Overall good management and condition. However air conditioning is completely useless in one of the bedrooms, which makes me fear my first winter in Pittsburgh even more...

Back when I lived here about 2-3 years ago, the Amberson Plaza was a pretty good place to live, if a bit expensive for its age. The rent for a single room and a living room was $950 (refurbished) and the staff was quite helpful when asked for help. The price aside, the management told me the building was about 30 years old, and you may see the occasional cockroach about once a week(... and the centipede about once a year... ). Still, this is very close to many of the UPMC buildings, Carnegie Mellon, and even the Giant Eagle and Wholefoods supermarket, so I think it isn't a bad choice for students/scholars visiting UPMC or CM. The location is absolutely 5 stars, the building itself is very old so about 2 stars, I'd say that you could give this place anything from 2-4 stars depending on how helpful the management is. It was pretty good from 2013-2014, so looking at the recent reviews, I assume it fell apart sometime in 2015.

Schools
Data provided by GreatSchools
The GreatSchools Rating helps parents compare schools within a state based on a variety of school quality indicators and provides a helpful picture of how effectively each school serves all of its students. Ratings are on a scale of 1 (below average) to 10 (above average) and can include test scores, college readiness, academic progress, advanced courses, equity, discipline and attendance data. We also advise parents to visit schools, consider other information on school performance and programs, and consider family needs as part of the school selection process.
