Terrific location in a terrific funky old building. Bedrooms are large enough and the kitchen living area is terrific for downtime. The old elevator is something out of a movie and fun in itself. We would definitely re-book the place. Showers and baths were clean with plenty of hot water for 6 of us.
The neighborhood, Back Bay, was absolutely beautiful, safe, and the ideal location for our group. The penthouse welcomed us with amazing views, just as the pictures show, and very clean living quarters. The bathrooms were a bit small (except master). The only toiletries available were deodorant bars, so be sure to bring your own. The apartment was stocked with extra sheets, blankets, and towels, which was very nice. The kitchen had a good supply of kitchenware, dishes, and utensils, but the refrigerator was completely empty. We encountered a structural incident where a very small window pane popped out from its frame when trying to open the window. We contacted Kitty and property management immediately and they were both very helpful and concerned for our needs. The window did not affect our stay and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute in this lovely home. If we ever came back we would definitely consider staying here again! We thank you for allowing us into your home!
My friends and I had a great stay over the weekend. Perfect location just off the commons. Great accommodations. The place was very clean. The only issue we had was the furniture downstairs needs some tending to. Wobbly chairs and old leather couch that was flaking off.
The apartment was quiet, private, had a great view of Boston areas and the AC was perfectly cold. Highly recommended for a nice get away with family and friends.
Did not see or speak to anyone the whole stay! The location of this apartment was great walking distance to most attractions. The apartment itself needs some TLC. The pantry was totally empty we thought at least the bare essentials such as tea coffee sugar salt pepper should have been provided. The lift only takes you to the 6th floor then you have to walk up 2 flights of stairs which could not have been more narrow. All ok but there were 4 of us with a fair bit of luggage a very difficult and awkward thing to do. The air conditioner was not user friendly the info left really not helpful.
Amazing view from the penthouse windows! Also great bathrooms and kitchen, comfortable couch and so on. Only critisism: the kitchen is badly equipped and the rooms are a lot smaller than they appear in the pictures. Nevertheless, this apartment is totally worth it!
The unit itself was nice. Great views. Cleaning could have been better- IE used shampoos and toiletries in the bathrooms.
Kitty was great however. We had an issue and were unable to use the whole reservation. She tried her best to help, but unfortunately change and cancelation policies are strict. Nonetheless she was great to work with and very easy to reach by phone.
