Rather random guest house
A rather random guest house, reasonably convenient location in Boston, but the guest house was rather haphazard.
The hostess was very informative and good natured, even cooking for us one evening, and although well-meaning, the skills to host and appreciation of guests was not well understood. Too many rules and regulations, an ill-equipped bathroom shared between 7 guests. I'd suggest plumbing and shower must to be upgraded so they are suitable for paying guests. It very much felt as if I was a guest in someone's house as opposed to a paying customer.
