  • Great stay on Beacon Hill

    "We enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It's probably three times the size of a comparably priced hotel room in the neighborhood, which gives your family some ability to get away from each other on vacation. We stayed with our two kids and everyone said their beds were very comfortable. The access to the apartment is slightly odd, stepping down into an alley and then hiking up about fifty stairs, but speaking as a former resident of Beacon Hill, this is absolutely typical of the neighborhood. Part of the reason why we wanted to stay in an apartment was to give our kids a feel for what living here would be like, and that's exactly what we got. And though the stairs may seem like a bit of a hassle, they remove you from street noise, keeping your nights much more quiet than they would be on the first floor. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the wifi worked well enough for me to attend WebEx meetings and stay caught up on emails. We feel the apartment was accurately represented in the photos and description, was clean and well managed, and we would definitely stay there again. The renting coordinator was also very responsive to us and our various questions. There's a Whole Foods within walking distance where you can get whatever you need, and several grocers within a three minute walk where you can get necessities, or luxuries, like a bottle of wine or a cookie. The neighborhood is fantastic, by the way. You can walk to most places within about fifteen minutes (Fenway not included, that's about a half hour but still a nice walk on a pleasant day) and it's also convenient to several T-Stops. We highly recommend eating at Antonio's on Cambridge Street - a great italian restaurant as good as anything in the North End - we've been eating there since they opened about twenty years ago and they offer a great italian meal in the neighborhood."

  • Beacon Hill Gem

    "My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with a trip to Boston stayed at The Salon. What a charming apartment, and its Beacon Hill location was a perfect place from which to explore the city. The owners have created a restful and well equipped oasis. We could not have been more pleased with our stay here. Delightful!"

  • Excellent Stay!

    "I came to Cambridge for a conference at Harvard Divinity School and had an excellent stay here. The area is quiet, the owner is hospitable and welcoming, and the location was perfect. The next time I'm in the Boston area, I'll definitely be coming back!"

  • Stayed Almost 1 Month for Nearby Surgery - PERFECT CHOICE!

    "My husband & I stayed for nearly 1 month (Dec '13) while I recovered from surgery @ nearby Brigham & Women's Hospital. We originally chose the rental for proximity to B&W, it's 1st-floor location, minimum stairs. Some notes I hope you find helpful... *Incredibly clean, and I'm a total nut about cleanliness *HUGE bed *Reliable & fast Wi-Fi *Listing is true to description; in fact, we were surprised & impressed by the apartment size when we arrived *Richard (owner we primarily spoke to) is professional, efficient, incredibly fast w/ response time *Our one minor issue was fixed immediately, conveniently *Owners were happy to talk to us whenever, or leave us totally alone *Great place for "medical tourists," as it's a 5-min-max cab ride to Longwood hospital area, good area for post-surgery walking *Location is awesome for everyone! You're right "in the mix;" walking, cab & "T" access to ANY ATTRACTION *Handy shops w/in 4 blocks: Whole Foods, Economy Hardware, Wine shop, Dry Cleaners, Art Supplies, different banks, CVS, USPS + TONS more *Yummy Food w/in 4 blocks: Pavement Coffeehouse, Ginger Exchange, Ichiban Yakitori, Boston Shawarma + TONS more *Easy walk to Symphony Hall, Prudential, Newbury St, Fenway, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Museum of Fine Arts, many schools/colleges *There's a 24-hr security guard who walks the street, which was very safe in our experience *Parking a car here is costly, complicated *The 'hood is thriving & diverse; populated by students, artists, older folks, musicians, professionals, bums, professors, hospital staff -- everyone! *The street & apts are charming, pretty, very "Boston" -- you'll certainly hear your neighbors, especially students, but we didn't find it to be a problem... If you're looking for a 100% perfectly sound-proof environment, Boston is not for you *We never waited more than 5 min when we called a cab *While the tub/shower unit are older, the rest of the bath is modern & clean, great water pressure *Linens = plentiful, clean, nice *Sink/oven&stove/fridge/dishwasher/washer&dryer unit all seem new, worked well *TV's are new, have big cable packages, but no DVD *Doors/locks are new & sturdy *Lots of windows & light *Hallway & exterior of building are maintained daily, super clean. We stayed almost a month, so we had a ton of time to find problems... but we really didn't! We would rent this unit again & we would highly recommend it to family/friends! Thanks again to Richard for making the whole stay SO EASY! 5 STARS!"
