Great location, clean, has many amenities but layout is a little weird

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Location was awesome, we took 5 minute taxi rides and 10 minute walks to some of the greatest locations in Boston. T-stop was 5 minute walk away and took us virtually anywhere we wanted to go. Hospitality and cleanliness were good too.

Cons: Wish it was a true 3-bedroom for privacy and separation of a living area from the bed area. Only a thin curtain to separate the areas from each other and the living area was small.

Thanks to all who helped and for the clean apartment. We had a great visit to Boston!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This brownstone is in a great location and the owner is very friendly and accommodating. This was our yearly girls trip and we loved Boston. Located close to everything. The Back Bay station is a short walk to public transportation. Convenience store is close by as well as a coffee shop and several restaurants. I would highly recommend staying in this brownstone.

Plenty of space in a central location

  • 4 of 5

Well situated and plenty of space for us. Stairs to lower level were a bit of a headache with little kids but otherwise it had everything you needed for a trip to Boston!
