About this listing
This room is not rented out normally but is used as a spare room for guests who are temporarily not able to book a regular room...it is a private room, but it is also used as an office for my documents and records and books. It is totally private for anyone staying here but has only a single bed for sleeping and shares bath with two others. The room is large, but has many books and papers for storage, ok for sleeping, but not suitable for longer term stays. Please send message for further information
Guests need to understand that this is a private home, not a hotel. Arrival and departure times are flexible with the owner's schedule.
The neighborhood was peaceful and very close to Back Bay station, which made it very convenient for travelling. It's also close to Newbury Street and Prudential centre, so all of your shopping needs should be satisfied.
The room was cozy and comfortable-- the air conditioning was much appreciated in the heat!
Robert was very courteous and even suggested an activity or two for the evening.
Robert is a very good host. He prepared a free map and introduced me to a very beautiful city. He helped me plan how to spend time after conference exploring the city and also told a story of Boston.
His place is very close to my conference hall, just 15 mins walk. It is also very close to Backbay station where I can take subway to anywhere in Boston and Cambridge. My 4th floor room is full of books but it is not a big deal. I just have to share bathroom with another guest. Check-in and check-out time is flexible. Overall, I like this place. It is very convenient to public transportation. The host is very nice. The rent is decent comparing to other hotels nearby. And I will definitely book this room for my next trip to Boston.
The house is located in a fine Boston heritage area close to all facilities and downtown. Robert welcomed me and his assistant showed me my bedroom on the 4th floor. My comfortable bed was surrounded by an amazing collection of books and paraphenalia in a large room of 25 m², such that I had 3 m² to get around. The washroom matched the standing of the house. I slept well that night.
I wasn't able to meet Robert, but JaQi was very welcoming and kind. The neighborhood felt very safe and quiet, despite proximity to Bay Bay. Robert was very responsive via Airbnb messages, and I greatly appreciated his flexibility in making the room available despite short notice!
I had been at Robert's place last year, and I returned this year.
That says it all, I think.
