About this listing
This cozy apartment is right in the heart of the city. So many of the historic sights are just short walks away - public transportation is three blocks from the apartment. It doesn't get much better than this!
Beacon Hill’s narrow cobble stoned streets and brick sidewalks are the very essence of old Boston. This historic neighborhood is located directly behind the gold-domed State House adjacent to downtown. Beacon Hill is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in the metropolitan area. Its residential character, tight-knit community, and high level of police protection contribute to its general safety.
Charles and Cambridge Streets are the major commercial strips in Beacon Hill. Charles Street offers some of the most exclusive shopping experiences in the metropolitan area. Cambridge Street is a busy thoroughfare that primarily features restaurants and supermarkets.
Beacon Hill is a designated historic district, and its streets offer great character and charm. Most of the housing stock is in small three- and four-story apartment buildings with ten or fewer units. Beacon Hill contains some of the oldest housing stock in the city, and individual units tend to be smaller than those in other communities.
Beacon Hill is one of the closest neighborhoods to MIT and is easily accessible to public transportation. The MBTA Charles Street/MGH Red Line station is located in the northwest corner of Beacon Hill and is just one stop away from Kendall/MIT. The Park Street Red Line station, a short walk across the Boston Common, is two stops from MIT. Depending on where you live, the Institute is a 15- to 30-minute walk or a short bike ride via the Longfellow or Massachusetts Avenue bridges.
On-street parking in Beacon Hill is extremely limited. Because this community is so accessible by foot, bicycle, and public transportation, however, there is little need for a car. Also, taxi service is fast and dependable.
If you plan on staying for a while, Stop & Shop's PeaPod will deliver groceries to "The Hill" for a nominal fee. If you are vegan or just careful what you eat, Whole Foods is just a couple of blocks away.
This apartment has one bedroom and a pull-out couch. It comes equipped with linens, towels, and has a complete kitchen, and there is a coin operated washer/dryer in the basement.
This apartment is perfect for anyone wanting to see the sights of Boston or anyone with business at any of the local hospitals or universities.

Donna's apartment was perfect, very well located and very well equipped. Made for a great base to explore Boston.
This place is as advertised. Great location. There was an issue with the a/c and Donna promptly had it replaced the next day. Tip: use the wifi info that's on the back of the router and not the one Donna provides you. That's much faster.
Donna est une hôte super qui répond très rapidement à toutes nos questions. Le quartier est magnifique. L'appartement, quoique vétusté est très propre, ensoleillé et calme. Le lit, très confortable. Le seul petit bémol que nous avons eu concerne la vitesse internet qui devrait être améliorée rapidement selon la propriétaire. Donna is a great host who responds very quickly to all our questions.
The area is beautiful. The apartment, although obsolescence is very clean, sunny and calm. The bed, very comfortable. The only small problem we had was the internet speed that should be improved quickly according to owner.
The apartment was a perfect match for my needs during my recent stay in Boston. The Beacon Hill neighborhood is gorgeous and convenient to everything. I found it delightful to walk across the bridge every morning to Kendall Square where I was working; to run on the Esplanade; to hang out at cafes on Charles St. a couple blocks away; and to take the red line to visit friends located throughout the Boston area. The apartment itself is comfortable and has great light; I especially liked reading and writing next to the large curved living room windows that look out onto the street.
I had a very comfortable and pleasant stay at Donna's beacon hill apartment. It was a great location and within walking distance to most of downtown Boston's sights. The apartment was clean and a good size for 1-2 people. I didn't cook in the kitchen but it looked adequately stocked to make simple meals. I had a good workout in climbing the 3 stories of stairs so that would be a consideration for people who have problems with stairs.
Great little apartment in an incredibly central location.
Would stay here again.
