Savin Hill Neighborhood:
Two Miles from dowtown Boston on the Ashmont Red Line Savin Hill Subway (T) stop.
Savin Hill is a quiet residential neighborhood in Dorchester. There is a small retail district near the Subway T stop: Mckennas (breakfast + lunch) Scoops Ice Cream shop, Savin Hill Bar + Kitchen (drinks + dinner). You are in the City - yet the neighborhood has a charming small town feel to it.

Bruce and Barry are wonderful. We didn't really know what to visit in Boston so they drove us and showed the most famous things to do in Boston. Even though we can't speak english fluent we had greats conversations with Bruce about Paris, Boston and many other things. Barry always makes sure you have everything you need. The room is very clean and comfortable.
We definetely recommend!
Fantastic just like last time! My fiance and his brother went to Boston for an AC/DC concert and said that Bruce was very accommodating as they were running late checking in. We definitely will be back!!
Bruce and Barry were wonderful hosts. They made us feel at home and encouraged conversation. Bruce was helpful with restaurant recommendations and Barry made us feel well cared for. The room was large and the bed comfy. We'd definitely recommended staying with them.
I was welcomed warmly in this beautiful place. Bruce and Barry are very kind and hospitable. I felt at home right from the beginning. Thank you for a lovely stay!
