  • Good Stay, Reasonable Price

    "We were happy with this apartment(family of 5) and would probably book again. The description says it is a 1 bedroom, but this is basically a 2 bedroom place. The den is very functional as a bedroom, and has the most comfortable mattress. Nice amount of space, nice area out back to have a glass of wine in the evening, kitchen was well stocked with the basic supplies, and owner was happy to get us anything we needed if it wasn't. My only issue was the the apartment felt like it needed a good deep cleaning. We visited at the tail end of the summer, so it may just be that there was a lot of traffic in the apartment between deep cleanings. It could also be that the buildings out there are over 100 year old, and I may be acting unreasonably and being ignorant due to being from the west...nothing out here is that old! All in all, a great place to spend time with family. We were close to everything, got the hang of the public transit system very quickly, and had a great time."

  • Great location at a great price

    "A short walk to the subway and one stop later, we were in the heart of touristy Boston! Though parking is available, we didn't need it as we could get anywhere we wanted by public transportation. It was easy to get to/from the airport, and though very close to the airport, it was not noisy. A 12 minute trip to Long Wharf and we paid a fraction of what the Marriott on Longwharf charges! Plus, we got the better view! Coming from Texas, we didn't feel the weather was too warm, even in August. The a/c was nice for an afternoon nap, but we preferred to sleep with the windows open. With windows on 3 sides of the building, there was always a cross breeze. The apartment was lovely! The layout was a bit quirky, but that is to be expected in an old building. The wood floors were charming. The kitchen was spacious and included everything needed for breakfast or supper. There was even an eclectic assortment of spices. We did not avail ourselves of the grill in the side yard, but it was nice to know that was an option. There is a lot of storage and this would be a great place for a long term rental! Not only was the subway nearby, but there is a good variety of restaurants and shops within a few blocks. I particularly enjoyed A&L Italian Bakery for breakfast pastries. My husband is gluten-free - one reason we prefer to rent a "home away" rather than a hotel room - and Boston as a whole was very responsive to his needs. In particular, Legal Sea Foods (across from the Aquarium T stop) had grilled fish, brown rice, and veggies w/o a bunch of sauces. Antico Forno on Salem in the north end was another favorite with gf pastas and pizza. We had a week and feel we barely scratched the surface of all there was to see in Boston! One highlight was the ranger guided Black Heritage Trail tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we learned some fascinating things. Another highlight was a day trip to visit the old mill town of Lowell - a 45 min train ride and the downtown shuttle at Lowell made a car unnecessary."

  • Top Floor, top notch

    "For just about two weeks I stayed on the top floor at this location on Monument avenue and found the accommodations to be fantastic. The room is quiet and bright and the bath is brand new and extremely well appointed. I felt at home there and thought Charlestown was a great, friendly location near downtown where I had business to tend to. I recommend this location and will return for business or just to visit the city."
