My daughter and I stayed here and felt very much at home. The accommodations were comfortable. Hermina was actually out of town during our stay, but she had someone who was available if needed. I greatly appreciated Hermina's detailed notes and directions prior to arrival regarding subways, trains, etc.
Beautiful apartment style home. Very comfortable. Host was very nice and considerate. I would definitely stay here again.
Hermina's space is clean, safe, and convenient. Although it is outside the downtown core, the trains run quite close by. It had all the amenities we needed and Hermina was friendly and helpful.
Me and girlfriend visited Boston last WE and spent a night at Hermina's house. The place is great and exactly as described on AirBnB, safe, convenient, recently renovated... I would just say that only one of the two bedrooms has the AC. If you plan to come during summer, I'd recommend you ask to Hermina which room you will have.
Hermina was a great host- the whole process was very easy and the apartment was in a great location- 2 blocks from the T that takes you into downtown Boston in 10-15 mins tops. The apartment itself was homely and clean. Just a heads up- I did not notice air conditioning in the rooms but there were fans. Just something to consider for the middle of the summer. It was comfortable when we stayed. Linens and towels were provided as well as breakfast items. Hermina was very communicative and helpful. Overall, a great experience and I would recommend it to future travelers.
Tolle Erfahrung. Hermina war eine gute Gastgeberin. Die Zimmer waren schön und groß, Frühstück nach Wahl. Tolle andere Hausgäste. Würde ich noch einmal jedem Hotel in Boston vorziehen.
Extremely convenient for traveling into Boston without a car. Nice, clean facilities in well-maintained house. As single female, felt safe and welcomed here. Excellent night's sleep. Good value-for-money.
We stayed for two nights. The location is excellent, in a residential suburb, but only 5min to the metro, and surrounded by excellent Vietnamese restaurants. The rooms are clean, and the shared bathroom is not a problem, as there is always enough hot water. There is internet and tv if you need a rest from sightseeing. The best part of the stay is the shared breakfast with Hermina and the other guests. We made many new friends from around the worl.
Secret tip: Saigon Seafood on Adam St around the corner is seriously excellent, packed with Vietnamese locals, $21 for 2 lobsters, plus best pepper squid I've ever tasted!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
