Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Historic Boston is the perfect vacation setting and this rental unit is in the center of it all. Located behind the gold domed statehouse Beacon Hill is rich with architectural beauty. The streets of Beacon Hill are still lit by gas lamps today. The start of the Freedom Trail is just over the hill. Many fabulous restaurants and pubs are just a short walk away, as are most of the popular tourist attractions.

Easy access to the ferries bound for Provincetown, Gloucester and whale watching. The rental is just over the river from MIT and Harvard, and just around the corner for Mass General and Suffolk University.

Seasonally the city comes alive with the head of the Charles Regatta, First Night ice sculptures, skating on the Frog Pond, graduations, the Swan Boats in the Public Gardens, concerts at the Hatch Shell, the Boston Pops, the running of the Boston Marathon and the Boston Red Sox!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Stop! Look no further. This is the apt you're looking for. We stayed at the property for 10 days and were very impressed with the comfort of the rooms and the central proximity to everything downtown. The apt has been nicely updated and the beds are good quality and comfortable. The temperature inside the apt was always perfect, even though we had hot days and cold nights. The neighbors are quiet and hardly a sound from the street could be heard. The stairs up to the third floor were a challenge at first, but once the luggage was up, all was much easier. The neighborhood is stunning beautiful. We marveled at the small courtyard gardens and nicely maintained window boxes. The apt is centrally located so we walked everywhere or took the nearby subway. The bed linens appeared new. The comforter was thick and soft and the beds had an abundance of pillows. The apt was well worth the price. We would definitely stay there again.

Great location, spacious

  • 4 of 5

Nice spot, just off Charles street. I used to live nearby, so like this area. Entrance and stairs may be an issue for some people. Decor is a bit tired, but size and location trump any drawbacks.

Good not great

  • 3 of 5

While the Beacon Hill location was convenient, the apt could use a bit of an overhaul. The living room furniture is very shabby and the rug in the master is a major hazard with no slip pad underneath. We've stayed in numerous rentals before and found this one to be very sparse (not a single roll of paper towels or box of Kleenex). I contacted the unit's representative on the first day of our stay to notify them that the wireless didn't work and it didn't work our entire stay.

Convenient, comfortable and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four was very comfortable in this apartment over our week-long stay in Beacon Hill. Conveniently located to all the things we wanted to experience in Boston, we really enjoyed having this place to come back to. It turned out that we didn't use the kitchen for meals others than breakfast, but that was mostly due to our desire for exploring nearby restaurants. Our neighbors we quiet and with the exception of garbage collection on Monday and Friday, the neighborhood was quiet too! It took a little getting used to climbing the 40+ stairs to the third floor apartment and hauling luggage up and down took some coordination and patience with the kids. Overall, we liked this place and would recommend it.
