Staying at Hermina's was very nice. It was a last minute request to extend my stay in Boston and she answered it in a timely manner. Communication was excellent!
The kitchen had everything I needed to make breakfast and the towels were readily available in my room. There was a store nearby (within a 5 minute walk) to get necessities and the subway/light rail station was also just minutes away by walking.
I enjoyed my stay at Hermina ' s place. Access to the home's bathrooms, loving room, kitchen and dining room. Comfortable bed for sleeping. Use of washer and dryer. I was able to cook and make tea with appliances ready and available at the home; dishes, pots, pans and some groceries were made available, even. Close to trains to transport to anywhere in the city. I would most definitely stay during future visits to Boston.
Hermina was quick to respond with info - before, during and after my stay in Room E. This room is small, and I think the most afordable in the house. The bed is VERY comfortable and plenty ot fresh towels were provided and extra blankets were in the room. The bed is only accessable from one side- not a problem for one person, but could be an issue for two - but then there are other rooms in the house that might be better suited for two people & at only slightly more money. This was a good velue for me - a business person looking for a place near Boston financial dist. get away from longer commutes for a few days. Thanks for welcoming me into your home - I hope to return some day & hope to meet you at our Wunda Farm some day (on Cape) - Mike

About the Host, Hermina
Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston last 15 years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in oldest neighborhoods in Boston (Dorchester). The house is beautiful, big, clean and colors are my addition to its charm. I love colors you can see it in the pictures.
I love the idea of B&B and now I have chance to host people from the world in my own house. I love traveling and the experience of meeting locals and one way of doing it, is where do you stay.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
