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.

Great little apartment in an incredibly central location.
Would stay here again.
The description of the apt was ok but the location was right on.
The photos of the apt were not exactly what we had, the living space was not what we thought, it was small.
I am sorry you were disappointed. A good portion of the apartments on Beacon Hill are small. I'm not sure I know what you mean by the photos were not what you had. If you could email me I'd certainly like to correct anything that anyone might think wasn't accurate.
I stayed here for 2 weeks with a friend and it has been a great experience. The apartment is very nice and located in one of the most beautiful and safe part of Boston. The neighbourhood is amazing and close to everything you need (subway, markets, CVS, restaurants and many other shops, touristic attractions).
The apartment is very comfortable, clean and well equipped.
Donna is great, responsive and helpful. She gave us all the information about the apartment and the city and quickly answered to all our requests. The communication with her has been easy.
Thank you Donna for the wonderful experience.
We definitely return to your apartment on our next visit to Boston.
Thank you Donna for another comfortable and convenient stay in Boston. It was my second stay in the apartment and I felt right at home as soon as I opened the front door! The apartment is very comfortable and had everything I needed. It is in a delightful neighbourhood with tourist sites, key stations and a supermarket very close by. The new (since my last stay) sofa, which converts to a bed, is a good addition. Donna provided all relevant information and answered all my messages promptly, no stress or hassle at all. Thank you again!
Donna has been very thoughtful and caring about our being well. And she has been very nice also in letting us stay until later than the regular checkout time, given that our flight was only in the late afternoon and the other guests would arrive only by that time. She arranged the things with the lady that cleans the appartment (Isabella -- she, to, an extremely nice person) so that we could stay there.
The location is great! We concluded that we were in the most cozy, quiet, pretty and ideal neighborhood to stay.
This listing was pretty much exactly what I expected. The host, Donna, was great, very thorough. The neighborhood is great! Very cute, very Bostonian.
This apartment is great!! I stayed here for a month and was really pleasantly surprised. It is a bit more spacious than I thought. It's an old building, but in the best way. Everything was super clean and comfortable. Full kitchen, with a little welcome basket from Donna! The bedroom is big enough with plenty of space for your things. Full futon in the living room. Loads of extra towels, blankets, pillows, sheets. The bathroom is the only sort of downside to the whole apartment. It's so small and the bathtub is older with curtains that go all the way around, and that touch you when you're in it. And there's no space to put any of your shower things inside. But you get used to it.
The neighbourhood is amazing. So quaint, so safe, so close to anywhere you'd want to go. I literally walked everywhere. Whole Foods and CVS (x2) within 5-10 mins walking.
One other downside - internet. The wifi is unreliable, and only works in the living room. It does not reach the bedroom or even the kitchen. And even in the living room, it only works most of the time. I did contact Donna about it, but it couldn't be checked out while I was there.
Over all, a wonderful apartment in the best area. And Donna is great. Very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend.
