About This Listing
This apartment is in the heart of it all! Walk to all the endless attractions, public transportation, big Boston hospitals, restaurants, Boston Common, State House, and the theater and financial districts!
Beacon Hill - Quirky, but fun! Located in the very heart of it all - Fabulous restaurants, shops and attractions! Full of history everywhere you look! Just minutes on foot to the State House, Boston Common, museums, financial district, theater district, Chinatown, Metro, Charles River, free concerts on the waterfront, Frog Pond skating, and all major hospitals. It is a furnished basement apartment, not a room and not a share! The apartment which includes cable TV and wireless internet, is very unusual. It has a foyer where you can sit and eat or just spend time watching all the interesting people walk buy! It has a fully equipped kitchen and small living room with basic cable & wireless internet. There are two sleeping areas with double beds. One is off the living room and has a privacy curtain. The second area is in the back and has a door. The bed is raised on a platform but a step stool is there to assist you. The retro, shiny ship wallpaper is a conversation piece! The bathroom facilities are separate from a large cement shower off the back bedroom. The building has old-time heavy wrought iron marble stairs. A washer and dryer are in the basement right out the back door. We provide laundry detergent and a few quarters to wash a load or two! All of this and less of a $25 taxi ride from the airport!
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.
Beacon Hill’s narrow cobblestoned 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 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.
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

I stayed here with my sisters over the marathon week. The location was perfect. We were able to walk to everything. It was also very near subway access.
The apartment was clean and comfortable for the four of us.The kitchen was fully equipped, and there were plenty of towels and bedding. Great shower, lots of hot water and supplied toiletries.
We did not see Donna but she responded promptly by phone to help us with the one problem we encountered with accessing the wifi.
I would be happy to stay there again.
Overall, we enjoyed our week in 64B Revere. It's a great location for visiting Boston. The kitchen is very well equipped, there was plenty of hot water (the shower was fine) and although it was still very cold outside, the apartment was always warm. However, as a retired couple staying the last week of March, we did find some challenges. Our only real issue was with the lighting. Some lights were not working when we arrived, there were additional light failures during our stay, and even when all lights were working, some areas could have been better lit. In general we feel that the property owner should have the entire electrical system checked. However, Donna, the agent/host, was always accessible to answer questions, dealt very promptly with the recurring light bulb issues and agreed that some instructions for using appliances would be helpful, especially for people from outside the US.

Donna was very sweet and accommodating. She was also very communicative and helpful as a host. He apartment was very nice and in a great location in Beacon Hill, perfect for a nice fall walk to the financial district.
We stayed in this quirky place which is managed by Donna for six days in early October 2014. The place had many positives - it was in a fantastic (and very quiet!) location, it had some nice personal touches (toiletries and the like) and although not large in size, my friend and I never felt that we were on top of each other. There is only really one 'true' bedroom (which is where the shower is) with the second bedroom off the kitchen separated by a partial wall/curtain combo - we didn't find this a problem, but larger parties moving about at different times might. The only negative thing for us was the shower. It seemed to come in only two temperatures - scolding hot and freezing cold ! It took a good 20 minutes of adjusting the dial to get it even vaguely tolerable. Definitely became an issue towards the end, however despite it all, it was an excellent base to see Boston. Nearest T-Line stop is MGH/Charles Street on the Silver Line.
We stayed there for one week. The apartment is small if you want to spend time there, but with such an awesome location it is located at, you will have plenty of options on hings to do. Will clearly recommend it to anyone.
