We had a wonderful stay with Hermina! She made us feel welcome with her quick responses to our questions and by all the information she provided for us about the townhouse. We had a wealth of information about the area and what was around us as far a restaurants, sights to see and how to get around.
The apartment was bright and cheery. I loved the sunny bright yellow of the place. The bed was super comfortable and we slept like babies.
Her assist Donna was there to greet us and answer some immediate questions. She saw us off too and was very sweet.
It was really neat to read the guest book and see where everyone who had visited previously had journeyed from.
We would stay with Hermina again and definitely recommend her to others.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our Stay in herminas beautiful townhouse was Great! It was really easy To Get there by Subway And To Get in To the City Centre Takes like Ten Minutes. Right across the street is a mall where you Get anything You Need. Hermina described how To Get in the House precisely so we didnt have any Problems. The House is also very clean And Comfy. Thanks a Lot for the Nice Stay!
Very nice house, rooms, and host. Neat, clean, welcoming - and just like in the pictures. So close to downtown Boston and so affordable! I would highly recommend this place to others.
Me and my boyfriend were originally reserved for the townhouse but ended up in a room in Hermina's house instead. we were given a day's notice but it was fine with us since the room we got was large and is well ventilated despite having no A/C. huge plus for us was they were close to the dollar store and the red line and the bathroom was clean. Other guests were friendly as well. I didnt meet Hermina or Donna personally but they were quick to respond and would call when needed. overall a great experience for first time AirBnb users like us, we would definitely go back to Hermina's again :) i would only suggest to change ligjt fixtures in the bedroom since i think it was too dim for my liking but other than that it was a pleasant experience and would recommend this place to my friends :)

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.
