Reviewer Comments:
This was a great place for us to stay in Boston. A little bit of a walk to the subway, but felt perfectly safe and the mall was just around the corner. Great view. Just a note that this two bedroom has a pocket door separating the rooms. No big deal but it's not mentioned in the overview anywhere. Again we had a great stay and would recommend it.

Reviewer Comments:
Hi! We were incredibly happy with the house. So clean, so beautiful, impeccable service. Was very impressed with your app and the followup during our stay. Everything was perfect BUT unfortunately it is close to a very busy street. All night we could here police, fast drivers with loud music, people walking and talking, construction workers at 7am, etc. And if we wanted to eat outside, there is the big noisy fan from the restaurant beside which is very unfortunate. If you could just have this wonderful house in a quiet environment, I would recommend it to everyone. Thanks and enjoy your summer!

We enjoyed our stay in the appartment.<br/>Very nice set up of the appartment, very helpful staff support via internet and phone. We would book the apartment again for our next visit.<br/>Hopefully the restaurant next door will fix their air conditioning equipment on the roof because that noise made the stay on the penthouse balcony very unpleasant.

Reviewer Comments:
The good parts - The apartment is clean and pleasant. It's comfortable and spacious. When we had a few minor problems on our arrival the company responded fast and dealt with most of them.<br/>The bad parts - I did not like the check-in and check-out policy which requires you to download an app. Although the apartment has a terrace, it is unusable because of the very loud and old air conditioning unit on the roof of the restaurant next door. It is literally impossible to speak to one another outside because of the noise it makes. It's very old and missing part of it's cowling, so not only is there the loud noise of the motor, but the clattering of the fan blades. Even having the door to the terrace open is unpleasant because it is SO loud. I realise that this is not the fault of the company, but if they can't get the restaurant to do something about it, I feel they should inform guests. Part of the reason we booked was because we wanted to use the terrace and we couldn't.<br/>The worst part of our stay was the water. It was always very low pressure and on a number of occasions we lost the water altogether. Both my partner and I experienced being halfway through a shower when the water stopped completely. It made us nervous about showering. Once we were unable to flush the toilet after using it and it was still not possible to do so 2 hours later when we went out for the day. Even when the water was working, the pressure was abysmal. Although not the companies fault, this was listed as an ongoing problem by the Boston Water co. website, so we should have been warned.
