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
This was my first Airbnb experience and I couldn't have been happier. Robert was gracious and offered directions where I had to go the next day. The room was just as described and was very pleasant and quiet. Books everywhere added to the character. Thank you for a great stay.
It is very nice to stay in Robert's apartment, which is ancient-styled. It is very close to orange line and back bay station. I could recommend others to stay there for a few days!
Robert was a great host, really kind person and he knows everything you need to know about Boston!
Beautiful-old-typical-Boston house, in a great (email hidden)st of the tourist spots are less than 20 minutes by walking, 3 minutes walking from Back Bay station..what else?
I got a bigger room than the one expected, lot of space (probably the only one without book :p), it was clean and comfortable, same for the bathroom. I stayed only one night but it would have been perfect for a week too.
Nothing else to add, I really recommend Robert's place!
The place was great considering the price. Thanks so much!!
Some mosquitoes in the room, as the window is not easy to close, and the room is full of books and other stuffs. But if you do not mind them, it is not a bad place to stay, as the house is very close to the town.
It was pretty much as I expected based on other's reviews. For me it was like staying at a distant uncle's place. It was cozy in that room - private and safe. I loved the location in the city. There are some great restaurants and sites to see within easy walking.
I was in Boston for a 2-day conference where I was out each day at 7 am, and back late. So I didn't need anything more than a place to put my head.
For that it was fine and I'd stay there again.
Robert is a very kind and warm person. I am very satisfied of the information and clarification he provided about the housing before I got there and the fast communication while I stayed with him. He was also very accommodating with my demands in terms of dates and to accommodate my needs.
The room is as described with a very comfortable bed albeit crammed room. It is full of books and interesting DVDs which I would love to discover had I had more time.
I unfortunately had to shorten my stay due to an unperceived inconvenience: the presence of mosquitoes in the room. However, I am sure that with the colder days ahead, this will not be a problem at all for those who wish to stay in upcoming weeks.
Robert provide me a lot more about Boston when I first arrived. The room full of books but they didn't annoy me beside they comforted me a lot. I'd love to stay with his book again when I have a chance to go back to Boston.
I found the previous reviews very useful as the house and the host are as described by most, so consider yourself warned about the piles of books and reviews cluttering the corridors: Robert is absolutely charming and a wonderful host and his historic house is one of a kind. As another room was available, Robert put me up in a more spacious and bright room that was perfect for me, with a desk and wi-fi connection. Now you have to share a bathroom with another guest who may have different hygiene standards, and this you can't really control. I (female guest) also happened to bump into him naked when walking up to use the loo... He was the one who panicked. That's how comfortable some guests feel... I wish Robert the best to keep renovating his wonderful house.
A great place to stay for small fees ! The kitchen is available and very convenient for people who wish to save their money and eat at 'home'. The place is located in the center of Boston and not far from the orange and green line subways.
Robert is a very nice, warm and friendly person, who is always here to answer all my questions and help me in my problems. We shared a lot of experiences, I really appreciated the 9 days !
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
