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.
Robert was extremely welcoming and his place was perfect for me. A great location, wonderful recommendations, and an easy in and out process were just what I needed. I would be happy to stay again next time I come to Boston!
I booked the office room, yet a bigger room was available so I was upgraded to the 'sunny room', which was clean, bright and spacious. The bed was comfy too, the bathroom right next door. The location is great, very quiet, and within easy walking distance from all major sights and the Back Bay station. Perfect for my short stay. Robert was very helpful and flexible with check-in and check-out times.
Great host, great neighborhood, good room!
Easy 2 block walk to Back Bay subway station and another block to Copley Square. Air conditioned and clean, but a little cluttered. Host gave excellent sightseeing suggestions and had a great deal of Boston knowledge that he was willing to share without being overly chatty. Nice neighborhood location with a few popular restaurant/bars around the corner. Will stay again next time I visit Boston!!!
Robert was very nice in welcoming me. He gave me instructions for getting to his home via public transit. When I arrived, he asked what my interests were and gave me some suggestions for places to visit in Boston. His home is very nice (I love seeing all the books), and the location is excellent.
Robert is very helpful in giving tips of where to visit in Boston. I got to watch King Lear in Boston Common when I first arrived in Boston. His apartment is within walking distance to the Back Bay (orange line) and Copley (green line) and very close to the Trinity church and Copley Plaza Hotel where my meeting venue is. A very lovely stay in Boston despite my busy meeting schedule. Highly recommended.
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.
