Our Stay in Little Italy

  • 5 of 5

Warm, cozy, charmingly updated. This space is ideal for a couple or family of 3. We vacationed our butts off by day and came home to our darling home-away-from-home at night. Ideal location to sight see historic Boston. Efficient use of space provides ample room in closets. Furniture is functional and comfortable. Excellent coffee pot. Clean and, again, comfy.

In my opinion, better than the bland and boring of a hotel. For the duration of your stay, you are a guest in the oldest part of Boston. And 2 blocks from some killer cannoli (and the Old North Church). The Freedom Trail is RIGHT THERE! You're also within walking distance of multiple green parks, historic cemeteries, roughly 1 million eateries (fuzzy math), the New England Aquarium, trolley stops, coffee houses, and all manner of cultural awesomeness...seriously, open the windows at night and let the soul-warming scent of garlic bread waft through the space.

The renters are very thoughtful and generous. Knowing we were to arrive with our 3-year-old at 1AM, they prepared a twin size air mattress, inflated and made up with construction themed bedding. Additionally, they provided a complimentary copy of "Make Way for Ducklings" with a kind note for our child. (You're thinking, "Wow! That's so sweet!" ...I know, right?)

Neighbors in the building are quiet. You feel safe in the space, above the street and behind 2 locked doors. Due to the location, traffic is minimal and therefore we found it to be quiet enough for good rest. We are from a small town, so we were somewhat apprehensive about what to expect being so "in the city."

Things to consider:

-Bring toiletries with you like shampoo, soap, etc.

-Towels and washcloths provided

-Coffee was provided, but we did use our own.

-Tasty tap water, bring your refillable bottle.

-Full-size fridge for saving some cash

-Some plastic-ware is provided also for convenience

-Cable TV in common room and bedroom

-Location is close to Bova's Bakery...you'll go home with a pound or two extra of "happy living weight." (No worries, comes right off when you exit Little Italy and return to the real world.)

LOCATION AND VALUE!

  • 4 of 5

This unit is minimalist in terms of both space and amenities. One minor inconvenience was that the dishes were not microwave safe and the only drinking glasses provided are wine and coffee. Like I said, a bit minimalist. Nonetheless, it was the perfect hub for our walking vacation in Boston. We came for the theatre (only about a mile to the district), but we literally saw it all! From this location, you can easily walk to all of the attractions Boston has to offer. Situation in the North End (Little Italy), you have a short walk to all of the best Italian restaurants and bakeries the City has to offer. A little longer walk and you can get to awesome seafood restaurants. Our host was communicative and accommodating. Check in and check out was very smooth. I would recommend this unit for singles or couples who are happy being in close quarters.

Great location great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This quaint apartment is in the North End, convenient to everything, and well-supplied. Very clean and in addition to a coffee pot, dishes, etc., the owners even provided a stovetop espresso pot and coffee-a lifesaver for me.

Massimo was very responsive and helpful, answering questions right away. If we return to Boston, we'll happily stay here again 😊?

Great location. Very small though.

  • 4 of 5

Great location and we would rent it again. Adequate in all ways but bath is super small. Would not work for someone who is larger than average.

Mediocre property

  • 3 of 5

The location is the best part about this property. It is within walking distance to great restaurants, sights, and the Freedom Trail. The apartment itself is pretty shabby. The electric baseboard heat was non-functioning in the kitchen. The wall heaters in the bedroom and living room worked, but had quite an odor. The bedroom smells like smoke. Either a former smoker was there, or there is a smoker in the unit above. The only lights in the bedroom are from lamps, and they aren't extremely bright. The bathroom is tiny. There is no hook for towels, so after a shower or washing your face, there is nowhere to hang them. There are double doors to the bathroom, but there is barely enough space for your knees when you are using the toilet if they are closed. There is no ironing board, and the iron was a challenge to find. I had to use a towel on the kitchen counter to iron. Wi-Fi worked fine, as well as the TV. The owner responded promptly to questions, though when I requested to leave a packed suitcase in the unit until my late evening flight, he never responded. Luckily a nearby hotel gladly held it for me while I explored during the day. I would not recommend this particular unit to friends or family after staying there. The price was extremely expensive for the quality of the unit. There is no way more than 2 people could stay in this unit comfortably.
