"The apartment is in a great location just behind the State House. It is compact but very charming. Everything you need is provided and the apartment was very clean. There were very noisy building works going on across the street when we stayed but that's not the fault of this lovely apartment. Robin was a pleasure to deal with - very quick with responses. Great place to stay for one person or a couple."

"This was my first time in Boston, and I had no idea what part of town or where to stay. Once I decided on the north part of Boston, I carefully researched places to stay. I ended up finding the Skinny House. And, oh what a find! It's an excellent place to stay. Perfect part of town, perfect location. The house itself is comfortable, inviting, and quite charming. If you're challenged by stairs, this might not be the best location. I had no trouble with them. It's on the Freedom Trail, across the street from Copp's Burial Ground. When people are on tours, they frequently stop in front of the house to look and take pictures. Don't be freaked out if this happens! It's really quite fun. The house is just up the street from the old North Church, and the "little Italy" part of Boston, all within walking distance. A great Italian restaurant is Antico Forno. Best pizza! The "Going Bananas" grocery story, down Hull Street, then a right at Salem, carries many things. A tad bit pricey though.
Overall, I would stay at the Skinny House again. It's a very fun place to stay, and Spencer is very easy to communicate with. Oh, and the house manager, Olivia, is delightful. She stopped in after we'd been there a couple of days to check in with us to see if everything was okay.

"What a great place to stay. This location was convenient to the T station, not around the corner but an easy walk. We found a few nice restaurants very close by. We enjoyed going out to grab a cup of coffee and sitting on the front step to read the Sunday paper and enjoy the beautiful weather. The apartment was very clean and we had everything we needed. Vivian met us with the key and showed us around when we arrived. We were in town for the FSU vs BC football game. It was an experience getting to BC when the train shut down, but a very nice Bostonian lady got us where we needed to be. Everyone we encountered was extremely nice. We enjoyed the Saturday PJ brunch at 647 Tremont. It was a little pricey but worth it. We enjoyed our tour of Fenway and walking the Freedom Trail. Lots to see and do in Boston. We will be back.

"I loved this room. Quiet, clean, spacious, nice view, air conditioned in summer (and I presume well heated in winter), wonderful bathroom with beautiful walk-in shower, little fridge, electric kettle, coffee maker--perfect for simple breakfasts and afternoon tea. Comfortable bed, small desk for laptop/emails, etc. Beautiful artwork on the walls and the stairwell, so even coming and going was enjoyable. Very safe. Excellent location in Charlestown--only a 5-min walk to restaurants, supermarkets, shopping, public transportation, and 30 secs from the beautiful Bunker Hill Monument. Atef was a very congenial host. Highly recommended!"
