Lovely house, clean and roomy. The only problem I had was checking in. The bed in my room had obviously been slept in and sheets weren't changed. I tried calling Hermina only to find out that her number is an international number and I tried calling Donna the caretaker but kept getting her voicemail. I had to send an email and eventually got a response. It all got straightened out but that meant I was late for my meeting etc
Other than that, I enjoyed my stay
Very well furnished house with everything you need, even a laundry machine and a dryer which i appreciated a lot. Friendly atmosphere in the house with other lovely guests and especially Donna, Herminas helper, did everything to fullfill our wishes. I can just recommend this place for a stay at Boston.
My boyfriend & I enjoyed our stay at Hermina's beautiful home. Thank you very much. Donna was very helpful, and was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. We stayed in room D and it was was nice roomy and clean.
It is very close to the train station.
If you need a place to stay in BOSTON stay here. You will love it.
Hermina's house is huge, clean, and quiet. There are many rooms within the house that are rented out through AirBnB, however, I almost never saw or heard anyone. This was perfect for me as I came to Boston for interviews and to work on my thesis for a couple of days. The kitchen area is perfect to cook for yourself and they provide lots of ingredients for a tasty breakfast. Both Hermina and Donna are helpful, nice, and quick to respond to inquiries. The area around the house may seem a bit sketchy, but I never felt unsafe because there are usually lots of people and cars around. Furthermore, the Red Line train is 2 blocks away, which takes you directly to downtown Boston in 20 min. Thanks!
Hermina was away when I stayed, but still extremely prepared and thoughtful. She'd left everything ready, sent great instructions, and had a local friend managing the place to make sure everything was in order.
Hermina makes several rooms available through AirBnb, and the other guests were considerate and great people to talk to. Her thoughtfulness even includes leaving the kitchen stocked with breakfast food for guests. Thanks for making such a warm environment!
Had a very nice room. Location is great. No complaints.
The room was ok, host friendly. The main thing is the location. Close to train station with easy access into Boston. You can walk from the house to several eating establishments (mostly some type of Asian like Thai or Chinese food). There's also a grocery store a block or so away, and a library (for free internet access).
Hermina is very friendly and generous. She's easy going and very attentive with guests. The house has a good location, very near to train. The área is very safe. Hermina's house is confortable.We had a very good time in Hermina's house. If you are going to Boston, we recomended it .Very thanks for all, Hermina!
Great host and room!
I enjoyed my trip in Boston and had a great AirBnB experience staying with Hermina. It was great visiting with her and other guests staying in the house. My room (D) was clean, comfortable and a good size.
