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.
Robert was an excellent host. He gave me a brief history of the city and told me where I should visit. He also responded very quickly and was flexible with check in/out. Everything is within a 20 minute walk and the room was very warm. Would stay again.
Robert kept in touch constantly, and never made me wait. He had someone help me with the luggage as I came in. The room was well-kept, comfortable, and private; nothing fancy. My only complaint was that water from ice was dripping at the entrance (the front door was shut, and they were using the basement entrance). The hot water situation could have perhaps been a little better too. Robert himself was a charming host, and gave me a lot of good information as I came into Boston.
Robert was kind, respectful, and helpful during my brief stay in Boston. He upgraded me to the cozy sunny room free of charge since it wasn't in use. The location was perfect for commuting virtually anywhere in Boston -- minutes walking from the orange/green lines with simple connections to the red for access to Cambridge. Lots to see and do in the South End as well!
Overall, I was pleased with my stay and would certainly choose to stay here again.
It was a great stay! Lovely apartment, responsive host and interesting apartment with many great books! Will stay again!
Robert was very welcoming and showed me different places that would be good to visit in Boston. The location for me was perfect, everything is in walking distance and Back Bay station is very close too (2-3 mins walk). The room was great, full of wonderful books and character. For me it was a peaceful home from home room.
I enjoyed staying in the top-floor room very much! It is very warm and cozy, and has everything you need as a "base" in back bay. The amount of books is incredibly impressive!
Robert's home is fantastic. Centrally located and very accommodating. Would definitely come back!
