Robert was a great host. He was able to take me in on very short notice, less than two hours. The room was comfortable and quite warm. Robert gave me a in-depth description of what I could see and do while in Boston and told me the history of his unique house. I highly suggest booking with Robert.
The house is very attractive, the room(chamber) is big and decorated well. Very clean(appropriate), very close to the subway in a charm district. Robert is a very kind man.
Initially I was confused about the location but that was more due to my unfamiliarity with Boston. To get there from Copley Place walk indoors through the mall to the Dartmouth St entrance to Back Bay transit station. Walk straight through the station and after walking out the other end, hang a right, and Chandler St is only a short block away.
Robert was teaching when I arrived, but his flatmate was able to let me in. His place is an eclectic little firetrap filled with books and various memorabilia from floor to ceiling. The accommodations were spare but comfortable and quiet. The wireless access worked fine. I only had a short chance to speak to Robert before I left the next day and wish I had had more time to talk about our shared experience in the teaching profession.
I would stay again; it might accommodate 2 ppl but I think it's a better place for one person in need of just a place to be able to get a night's sleep before heading back out again.
It was great staying at Robert's place. The location couldn't be beat, the room was excellent, and Robert was very flexible about check-in/check-out times.
It was a nice time at Robert's place during my stay in Boston. He and Jacky provided good tips in getting your way around Boston. The room was spacious and the place was located conveniently near the city center. Most of the places were accessible by foot. However hot showers may not be available whenever you want if someone has showered before you; you may have to wait an hour before the low pressure water tank warms up.
Other than that, I would recommend this place.
I had a wonderful stay at Robert's house. It was a bit cold. However, the location and price really make up for it. I don't think it's even possible to find a better deal in that location. The room had a couple extra blankets, which helped a lot. Also, he was very flexible with check in/ check out dates, helpful with all of my questions. It was great. Thank you.
Anothet night at Robert house, great host and great location.
Robert's location is excellent. A short walk to great shopping and tasty restaurants on Newbury Street, Copley Square, and the Back Bay T station. He was very accommodating when my flight was delayed by 2 hours and when my travel plans shortened the length of my stay.
Robert & Jaiqi are wonderful hosts, very gracious and engaging! The home is ideally located in the lovely South End - convenient to public transportation, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. The house is old and quaint, I found my bedroom and the bathroom clean. Never did run into the guests in the other 2 rented rooms. I will definitely stay here again when I'm in Boston and not wanting to spend big bucks on a hotel room. Thank you Robert & Jaiqi!
Really interesting house, my room was really quiet and spacious.. Jacky, who welcomed me on my arrival, was a great source of info - gave me maps and showed me things to see and do. Is in a top spot - near the Back Bay railway station, Copley Square, beautiful Trinity Church and Boston Library which should not be missed. Thank you.
