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
The room is overcrowded with books as described in the ad, but it therefore has a special ambiance, which I liked. I can recommend that room for a short stay (I spent there 5 nights) as the house is situated very conveniently in downtown Boston. And Robert and Jacky are wonderful hosts; amongst others very helpful with providing information about the town and assisting with the baggage. I had a great time. Thank you.
Thanks to Robert and Jacky! They are very nice guys who gave me good advices on where to go and what to see and are also very nice to talk to. The room was clean and filled with lots and lots of books!! I didn't mind that since I was on a conference all day and rather enjoyed the short distance to downtown. I would definately go there again!
Robert was very kind and helpful. He shared a map of Boston with me, gave me some tips on where to go to see the sites, and upgraded my room at no additional cost (as there was a last minute vacancy. The location is great.
As described by other reviewers, the room is filled with books, DVD's, stuffed animals, etc. Don't expect the place to be super tidy. The bed is a big squishy but OK. When I arrived, I was greeted by Jacky who carried my suitcase up the stairs to my room. Robert was very communicative via email so I felt like I was being taken care of. The location is great, easy walking distance to the downtown area. Overall positive experience.
Nice, practical and efficient, would recommend for a short stay in central Boston.
This room is completely filled with books, but is very cosy nonetheless. I would stay it makes this house an exotic experienc3e, with lots of charm. The host was very courteous, although I did not stay for long.
I stayed there over night while visiting Boston, it was very well localed and a pleasant surprise.
Nice location, walking distance to public transportation. Perfect for student or traveler. Top room is an office with loads of books stacked everywhere. Single bed, clean sheets, towel and city map.
Robert was very accommodating and the place was just as advertised. Lots of books and things collected but more than enough room for someone who just needs to sleep and shower and get out in Boston!
very close to public transit and a beautiful area.
The place was also kept clean and tidy beyond the stacks of literature.
I got really great time with this house. He was really good man!
The room was just as described, and the location is amazing. Robert is very friendly and accommodating, and it was a pleasure to stay at his home. After reading some reviews that weren't completely positive, I had doubts... but after staying there, I think whoever wrote those are critiquing the room as though it were a hotel... and it's not. It's a lived-in home. Overall, very good experience!
