Perfect location for a ramble around Boston by subway!
"The Fort Hill Inn was the perfect home base for rocketing around Boston for two chilly January days! It was cozy and picturesque. The room we had with double bed and private bath was not at all too small. The tub was deep and claw footed (as well as a shower). There was a microwave and mini fridge as well as coffee and tea making supplies. Every thing was clean and well stocked. The personal touches made it feel like we were staying at a friend's house. Just the opposite of a boring blah hotel room! Climbing the very steep staircase felt like climbing into a piece of history. It is close to the subway and restaurants within walking distance. Might be a bit of a walk for some, but we loved getting a feel for the neighborhood on foot. There didn't seem to be a grocery type store close at hand, just a convenience store (which didn't sell beer or wine) wasn't a big issue for us and we didn't ask Terry but he may have known of one. All in all it was just a lovely place to stay. Thanks Terry!"

"For the cost and conditions, this condo was perfect for two couples. It was clean and comfortable, in a good neighborhood, an affordable cab ride to downtown Boston and walkable to Harvard, MIT and several good restaurants and stores. My only complaint is that the people staying in the other rental above walked around a lot very loudly and were walking back and forth all morning making sleep difficult. I would still recommend staying here as the noise depends on the renters. This condo made staying in the Boston area affordable while meeting quality expectations and I would stay here again."

"This was a perfect place for 2 adults and 2 teenagers in a great part of Boston. The apartment was very clean and it was nice to have a kitchen so we could eat a few meals in the room. My sons appreciated the space and liked the fact that they did not have to share a bed. The upstairs bedroom gave a bit more privacy which was nice. I agree with previous reviewers that the shower is a bit awkward but that was a very minor issue. The landlord was extremely helpful and left a comprehensive list of area amenities and recommendations. She checked in with us to see if we needed anything or had any questions. Since we departed on an evening flight the landlord offered to keep our luggage until late afternoon which was a huge help. Wifi worked great and we would not hesitate to rent the property again."

"We visited Boston for just over 2 months for work and were really lucky to have found this place to stay! The location was perfect for us. It was a neat experience to stay in the quaint and charming Beacon Hill neighbourhood. We could walk everywhere we needed and wanted to go. Whole Foods is a 3 minute walk away for groceries and pre-prepared meals, there are numerous pharmacies nearby for essentials, and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby as well. Over our stay we walked to nearly all of the Boston "must see" places and landmarks from here. It is also close to several "T" stations (subway) for transportation. We were pleasantly surprised by how well equipped the place was, even for our long term stay, and even through the snowiest winter in Boston's history! It has everything you need for bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen as well as books, games, TV, and Netflix to keep you entertained in case you get snowed in (otherwise go out and explore the beautiful historic surroundings!) It is a clean, well kept, beautiful unit on the fourth floor. We knew before we arrived that there would be no elevator but managed the stairs just fine, even hauling our 3 month old son and all of his gear up and down. I would definitely not let this deter you from staying in this little Beacon Hill gem. It's location truly can't be beat. I feel we got a true Boston experience staying here and I would highly recommend it to others!"
