Nicely appointed, clean and efficient studio apt.

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment in an historic building has it all, and functions brilliantly in a well designed small space. Bed very comfortable, plenty of storage, lovely bathroom, nice and easy kitchen - all the comforts we needed. If that isn't enough... the neighborhood is fantastic! Markets, restaurants, boutique shops, and bus stops - all on charming, tree-lined Charles Street in the desirable Beacon Hill area. We ate at and recommend: Bin26, Figs, Upper Crust, and the original Cheers (a 4-5 block walk). Great food and service. Property management communications a breeze. Loved this apartment and highly recommend! Tourist tip: Visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum - it's an impressive treasure in Boston.

The location was great. Customer service was limited.

  • 3 of 5

I was very disappointed that we were not only responsible for supplying our own toilet paper, dish soap and other basic supplies but also were required to be our own maids. We had to remove all of trash and strip the beds prior to check out. This information was not shared until 2 days prior to our stay. The apartment overall was very nice but The bed was uncomfortable and the couch was in need of repair.

Owner's Response: Hi Bobbie, I'm sorry to hear that you stay didn't live up to your expectations. We do supply guests with a few rolls of toilet paper and dish soap, but only recently started supplying units with soap for the dishwasher. In order to pass on as much savings as possible to our guests, we do away with things like providing like daily laundering service and toiletries, instead giving people free machines that they can use to launder their own items. If there was anything else that seemed to fall short please feel free to let us know so we may improve upon it for future stays. Thank you, Scott

Great unit and great location!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 12 nights in this great unit in Beacon Hill. The unit had everything that I needed. It is located in the perfect position...close to the T...close to the city...on a fantastic lively street.

I would stay here again anytime. The unit was clean....spotless when I got there...on the top floor it was quiet, couldn't hear the elevator at all or any other people staying here.

Loved having the free laundry downstairs....necessary when staying for a couple of weeks.

TV had heaps of channels and the free Wi-Fi was fast and reliable.
