Small problems get fixed, while severe problems will be acknowledged but not addressed properly. There have been issues with our roof for about 3 years. The apartment across the hall had the ceiling in the bedroom collapse and leaked into the… Full Review ▶

When I was looking at apartments in Pittsburgh, I came across these reviews but decided there was no harm in looking at Alvern Gardens anyway, just to see for myself. I was amazed at the size of the apartment considering how… Full Review ▶

I am also relieved to no longer be living there. People need to know what they are getting into before choosing this as their home....This place was hell for the entire time I lived there. Even though they were kind enough… Full Review ▶

We are very happy to no longer be living here. The buildings are literally falling apart. The maintenance crew is slow to fix things and when they do it is very temporary fixes. The woman who ran the office was extremely… Full Review ▶

If you enjoy quiet evenings, a comfomfortable well kept apartment...I would look elsewhere. Alvern Gardens has gone so down hill from where it used to be! A family member of mine moved in about 18 years ago, and it wasn't SO… Full Review ▶

The apartments are inexpensive. They're also incredibly cheap. I wouldn't call it a ghetto or a slum, I would call it unsafe in some ways, terribly uncomfortable in others, and and I would say that management is unconcerned with tenant's safety,… Full Review ▶

The apartments are decent sized and the price is right. Heat/Water is included and they have off-street parking. Negatives: During the winter we have noticed that the heat is off in the morning, and the apartment is cold. When it snows… Full Review ▶

I have lived here for about three and a half years. It's a decent place to live. As with any apartment, the walls are thin. Since the building is old, and I live on the first floor, I can hear every… Full Review ▶

Where to begin? I´m currently trying to get out of my lease, which has become a nightmare in itself. Maintanance is a complete joke; most tenants are better off doing any repairs themselves, and usually do, at their own expense. The… Full Review ▶
