Lovely apartment, wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this lovely apartment in Beacon Hill, Boston. The apartment is located in the best area of this beautiful city. We were able to walk everywhere. We parked out car in the car park under Boston Common and did not need to use it during our 4 day stay. Boston Common and Public Gardens were across the road. Newbury Street with its shops and restaurants nearby, and the delightful Charles Street village a few minute walk away. Don't miss the coffee and pastries at Tatte Bakery in Charles Street...we had breakfast there everyday and often returned for coffee and cake when we we were running out of energy!! The apartment itself was perfect, Very nicely furnished, comfortable and very safe and secure with a doorman at the entrance. Jonathan, our host, was very attentive, checking that we had all we needed. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment to other visitors to Boston. We would love to go back. Sally, Alan and Zoë.

Fabulous time!

We had a great experience staying here! Jonathan was excellent to work with, and my family of 4 fit perfectly. The best part of this apartment is the perfect location! We could not have asked for better! We will be back for sure!

Fantastic location, well stocked, best host ever!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment. Fantastic location for Freedom Trail and train to Fenway Park. Very easy to access and navigate from this location. Well stocked with all you might need in a "home away". Jonathan is a great host. Best communicator I've had in all the years I've used VRBO or Homeaway. He even called to ensure we arrived safely and let us know he was just a phone call away. Highly recommend this property!

Steps from Boston Common; Lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Beacon Street. The location is perfect--we walked everywhere and occasionally took the T to explore further out of the city center. The condo is a one bedroom, one bath with a cute kitchen and sitting/dining room. We had everything we needed--perfect size for 2 people. It was clean and well-maintained. There is a new window air conditioner in the bedroom, and even on the warm summer days we stayed cool with fans in 2 rooms that kept the air circulating. Jonathan was an excellent host, attentive to our questions and easy to work with. One nice perk is the rooftop deck with gorgeous views of the city--we went up there after a long day of sightseeing--beautiful! We would definitely stay here again! Highly recommended.

disapointed

  • 1 of 5

Very dispointed after reading other reviews. the person on the front desk extremely rude. The flat although quite big was not clean. I had to change the bed sheet as the one on did not fit. the one I found in the cupboard had a hole in it. bathroom described as a marble bathroom... A very fantasised description. It is a very small bathroom and only access is through the bedroom if we had anyone else staying it would have been rather awkward. this also unclean.

It also does not tell you the air condition machine so loud it cannot be used. Tv has only basic programmes. To get to the top deck you have to go back to the lift and go to top floor..then hope that it is not too crowded as only two tables.

The only good thing about this place is the location

Location eccezionale, appartamento spazioso e confortevole con piccoli dettagli migliorabili

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato in quattro per alcuni giorni nell'appartamento di Jonathan.

Anzitutto, a nostro giudizio, la caratteristica migliore in assoluto di questo alloggio è la posizione strategica e di una comodità eccezionale per visitare la città.

Vicinissimo a tutto: metro, stazione treni e bus, parco, luoghi storici, negozi, ristoranti, musei, attrazioni. Abbiamo sempre girato a piedi senza nessuna difficoltà.

Lo stabile è piacevole ed è dotato di una terrazza comune al decimo piano con una bella vista panoramica sul parco Boston Common e su Downtown.

L'appartamento è molto spazioso e confortevole, ragionevolmente ben attrezzato.

Ferme restando le caratteristiche positive, che sono di gran lunga predominanti, vi sono però alcuni aspetti più critici, anche se di minore importanza.

Anzitutto è bene considerare che si tratta di una casa storica e quindi non bisogna aspettarsi soluzioni da nuovo condominio di lusso, ad esempio le condutture del riscaldamento mostrano un po' i segni del tempo.

Oltre al letto matrimoniale, altri ospiti possono dormire sul divano letto, il cui materasso è tuttavia un po' scomodo anche se ampio (è stato usato dalle nostre due figlie). Forse potrebbe essere sostituito con qualcosa di più confortevole.

Infine il bagno, nel complesso dotato di ottime finiture, ha però una vasca con diversi segni di usura decisamente anti-estetici: secondo noi, visto il livello dell'appartamento, andrebbe ricoperta o sostituita.

La comunicazione con il proprietario, anche se molto ridotta perché non ne abbiamo avuto bisogno, è sempre stata cordiale, precisa e rapida.

Nel complesso ci siamo trovati decisamente bene.

E' un'ottima soluzione che ci sentiamo di consigliare e che terremo sicuramente presente se dovessimo ritornare in questa bellissima città.
