top location, very small room & bathroom

  • 3 of 5

Location is great. The place is clean but very small room and bathroom, no furniture to put clothing away (except a free standing rod to hang clothes), live off your suitcase if you can find a place for it, very steep stairs to get to the room and no way to manage the heat or A/c level in our room as the neighboring room had the control and it was very cold (and if you close the outlet, it is very noisy as air tries to push through), no sink in the bathroom (the vanity sink is in the room, used as mini kitchen)... this place works for a short stay at a reasonable cost.

The owners were very nice people. It was just not a comfortable room.

  • 1 of 5

The instructions for checking in were confusing. The owner met us at the door and showed us the room and gave us the keys when we arrived at 1:00pm. We did not have to leave our luggage or a note for the maids (if we checked in before 4:00 pm)as stated in the confirmation email.

The room was very clean, but extremely small. No sink or mirror in the bathroom. The only sink was the one in the “kitchenette” Hardly any room to open a suitcase and the closet was a rack with hangers. There was also no bar soap for the shower. Two floors of extremely steep staircases to navigate with heavy baggage made for quite a trial for senior travelers. On the upside the bed was very comfortable.

Owner's Response: This guest did not show up for her one night reservation. She arrived the following night. Fortunately we accommodated her. Her reservation request us for the prior night and we confirmed it with a VRBO confirmation and our confirmation. It was very clear. There was no confusion.She made an error. We always allow occupancy earlier than 4 pm when a room is cleaned at a guests' arrival. We expected her the prior date. Of course it was clean when she arrived. Our description clearly states the room amenities and stairs exactly as they are. There was liquid soap. We will not accept a reservation from this guest again.

Very clean, location great!

  • 5 of 5

Love the unit, small but works for a short trip for one or two people the most. It was very clean. Location was great. Wonderful restaurants in the area. Copley Plaza within walking distance. Only thing is there is no closet or drawers to store or hang your clothes. Keep in mind there is no elevator and the stairs are steep. Also, the unit could use a ceiling fan. Definitely would stay there again.

Great location, Clean, well appointed!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at this great location. The building is very quiet - don't generally hear any neighbors. Street noise is loud so don't plan on having windows open. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. Everything went very smoothly and it was very convenient to collect the keys at the market right on the corner.

The only improvement that could be made is the addition of curtains and a fan to help keep the room cool. The blinds aren't quite enough given that the thermostat is outside the room in the hallway and frequently someone would turn off the air and our room would heat up quite a bit.
