Even though I did not see a lot of person due to the fact I was so busy at my conference, my stay at Robert's was very nice. The room is comfortable and looks exactly like on the picture: a lot of decoration, a theme clearly centred on Titanic, but in a way that as soon as you enter you feel at home!
Robert was really nice and easy-going: even though I was late due to my plane, I was still warmly welcomed, and even helped for my venue.
The house is in a quiet neighbourhood (which is not the case everywhere in Boston), allowing quiet and restful nights (except maybe for the clock in the corridor, but when you are sleepy it does not matter that much).
In few words: I definitely recommend you to go at Robert's :-)
Wow - what a home with a lot of history. A classic Boston brownstone about 2 blocks from a major mass transit stop (subway/bus/Amtrak). Room was spacious and included a desk, TV, couch, local maps/tourist info and wifi. Bathroom is modern and in good working order. During my stay I tried to imagine the history of this home and everyone who has passed through here. Definitely not a cookie-cutter hotel room. Staying here will make my visit to Boston even more memorable.
Boston est une ville magnifique comme la maison de Robert un charme croyable
Robert et tres prévenant et attentionné les meubles anciens la salle de bain sublime !!!
Merci Robert a tres. Bientôt a Boston
The host was welcoming and helpful, but the house was a disappointment. The host seems to be a hoarder (of books at least), as almost every space, is stacked with books and nicknacks. The floors and bathroom were not particularly clean and there was an unpleasant odour, throughout the house. My bed wasn't great either.
On the positive side, the quiet location is great.
I regret that you were unhappy with your choice of lodgings, but you certainly never expressed any concern when we met several times. You might have done better, perhaps, in staying at one of the hotels a couple of blocks away and paid $450 per night instead of the 75 percent discount you paid for staying in my home among the books and "knickknacks" that seem to have annoyed you.
A Fantastic stay all round! Robert was extremely helpful for a first time visitor to Boston, showed me all the places I should hit with my 48 hours and I was not disappointed! A great, quiet little place that more than did the job!!
We are sponsoring a young musician who had auditions in Boston and the issue of where to say came up. A hotel didn't seem appropriate for this young man, and so we turned to AirBnB, discovering Robert's perfect Back Bay bnb. We were excited because it was close to the audition sites and reasonably priced. In early correspondence with Robert, we sensed how perfect the fit really was -- Robert is a professor at a nearby college. We packed our young charge off to Boston and into the middle of a blizzard. We had to extend the stay several days, and Robert was incredibly accommodating. We knew our young student was warm and safe in Boston until we could get him a flight out. Our student tells us that the room is wonderful, comfortably cozy and a great place to pass snowy days, though he would liked to have toured the area more. We booked Robert's bnb for a subsequent visit and hope to stay there ourselves someday.
Robert fue un gran anfitrión, me ayudó a planificar las visitas a la ciudad, es una persona muy amable y preocupada.
Su casa es muy acogedora, tiene una pieza amplia, y está bien ubicada (cercana al metro).
Definitivamente recomiendo alojarse con Robert.
