We had rented a car , so it was easy to get around. The beach was close, just 15 minutes. The place was quiet. Hermina was very friendly and helpful. There are places to eat on Dorchester Ave. that are around the corner. We had Magic Wok one nightZ very yummy and Bosburer. Yummy too.

Good value for the big city of Boston. Close to public transportation. Had air conditioner-not installed, but didn't need it. Stayed in room D. Hermina was sweet, even when we forgot to leave the key. Enjoyable place, although rowdy in the neighborhood past 11. Seemed Safe and near police department. House was quiet!

All in all we had a good experience. It was easy to get to, we had no problem finding a parking space, we felt safe in the neighborhood, the room was clean, the price was right, and Hermina was very accessible. The con was that the number of beds in the room was unclear in the description. There were 2 of us and the room (D) said it would sleep 3. This meant 2 in the 1 full bed and there was an option for Hermina to get a pull out for the 3rd. Fortunately I was staying with a good friend so we just shared the full. Also, it was pretty muggy and the air conditioner was in the room still in the box and not installed. That being said, it was all in all a good experience.

Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many 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. Traveling is part of my life and staying with family opens chance to meet local people.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
