THE HOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1869, RESTORED ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO, AS A VICTORIAN TOWNHOUSE. IT IS VERTICAL LIVING STYLE WITH ONE OR TWO ROOMS ON EACH LEVEL, AND UP TO 5 LEVELS TOTAL.

Robert and his staff are very friendly. Also the location is perfect. The room is old but clean and comfortable. If there were some paper cups in the room, it will be helpful.
Robert was a very kind host who introduced me to all the interesting venues Boston has to offer. I had a very pleasant stay in the room (exactly as depicted). The bed was excellent! As most US houses, you could hear people on the stairs and in neighboring rooms. I'm always prepared with ear plugs, so this was no problem fpr me. (Airconditioning on hot days will probably brings up the same noise issue). Many thanks for the good time, I'll definitely come back!
A very quirky but comfortable stay, excellent location and super convenient. Was on a tight schedule so regretfully didn't manage to meet the host, met his associate who was very nice and helpful. I am a light sleeper and I slept very well in Robert's house. Unforgettable stay
The location was ideal. Centrally located and close to transport, food and all basic needs. Robert was helpful in advising about transport and eating tips in the area. The house is four stories up, which would have been good to know. However, Robert did arrange for my pages to be brought up for me. Room was very comfortable. Bathroom was shared with another 'tenant' and was clean and well provided. The hosting is a very independent one. I didn't see Robert after check in. Felt safe and cozy. Books & art everywhere, which I love.
