Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at this location as the price was right for Boston. Husband , friend and I stayed here for 4 days. It was very clean, and had the basic stuff we would need. Only thing they could do better is a room darking blinds/ccurtain as it has an old school shade, and didn't make the room dark. Wish they had a smart TV for online streaming such as Netflix or other vidoes on demand.. (Not many watch live TV anymore). Wifi was very slow tho. Love the App to use to control the lock, and temp. Also, plenty of info there as well on the app.

We loved this property! When we first entered the penthouse we were surprised how big it was. This is a great location for a couples get away. The balcony and roof top were perfect to watch the sunset and see the clouds roll through the city. 10 out of 10, would stay here again!

Reviewer Comments:

Charming apartment, with good amenities. Just as described. Its on the 4th floor, so stairs may be difficult for some. But balcony with grill is nice. A busy street, so a little noisy, but close to subways, coffee shop, restaurants, grocery. Property well maintained. Had a little difficulty getting internet connections, but property management was very responsive to emails. Loved the 224 Boston St restaurant next door, and the Dorchester Brewing around the corner. They have a caterer/food trucks each night to get dinner along with craft beers. It looks to be in a neighborhood being regenerated. Felt safe walking to the JFK/Umass subway station (13 mins). Only 3 stops from the major subway hub downtown. Would definitely recommend and visit here again.
