Just steps to the Boston Common and located in Beacon Hill. This apartment is in the center of Downtown Boston and the Freedom Trail. Everything is close by and walkable. There is a convenience store in the building - easy for getting quick groceries. There are also 2 restaurants in the building and tons of other restaurants close. All of the major subway lines are only a 5 minute walk away. The locaiton is perfect! A Whole Foods is a 10-minute walk
It is at the intersection of Beacon Street and Bowdoin Street in downtown Boston.
Beacon Hill is located directly behind the gold domed State House adjacent to the downtown section. Today, Beacon Hill is regarded as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Boston offering character and charm seldom matched elsewhere in the city.
Charles Street is the neighborhood's main street and is filled with antique shops, enticing cafes, restaurants, delectable food shops, and boutiques. Cambridge Street offers restaurants, a Whole Foods supermarket and is also the home of the venerable Massachusetts General Hospital. Both streets offer many unique neighborhood shops.

The building is perfectly located within downtown Boston / Beacon Hill. You can get around easily by foot or quickly reach the Blue (Bowdoin) and Red / Green Line (Park Street). The apartment is very clean and has all the necessary amenities for a stay in the city. Sizewise, it fits a couple well. Wifi works well, too. A big plus is the great view from the roof top terrace, which we enjoyed frequently. There's a porter in the building to guarantee security as well.
Communication with our hosts before and during our trip was efficient and friendly.
We would definitely stay at the appartement again and recommend it to friends and family.
This was my first time trying Airbnb, and this place did not disappoint! It is small, but very functional. The location is unreal... Right in the heart of everything, and just steps from the North End (where my boyfriend and I went every night--we live in L.A., which just doesn't have great Italian food). I also loved the roof deck-- I was able to take a beautiful nighttime shot of the gorgeous view from there.
Communication with Henry and Lisa was quick and efficient. The studio apartment, comprised of a bedroom with desk, kitchenette, large bathroom, and large closet, is in a ten-story, well kept apartment building. The neighborhood is bustling, with two restaurants, a convenience store, and coffee/donut shop on the same block. Boston Common park and subway are just minutes away.
Room was remarkably quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Microwave, fridge, wifi, AC (not needed) worked well.
Layout of room has changed somewhat from photos but basics are the same.
Building’s roof terrace provides photogenic views over Boston.
Very happy with owner and apartment.
Henry and Lisa were great hosts with a lovely apartment. Perfectly situated right next to Boston Common, close to transport and easy walking distance to major tourist sites.
The apartment was clean and well maintained, good air con during the hot Boston summer. There is also laundry facilities too.
Cozy, quiet, efficiently organized flat in well-run building, superb location. When a problem arose with a stopped sink, Henry had it quickly fixed.
Great comunication with hosts. They let us store our bags early for a few hours as we arrived before check in time and the room wasn't quite ready.
The location was perfect for exploring the history of Boston, and some of the food! We were able to find our way around (also found some maps and other brochures there in the room that were helpful). The size of the room for 2 people was perfect, and although we didn't cook as much as planned, we were thankful for the kitchenette space.
The rooftop deck was very enjoyable as well.
Henry and Lisa kept good communication in the months leading up to our trip. Their friends met us at the apartment. They were flexible, even when our flight was delayed.
The neighborhood is really beautiful. 1 minute walk from Boston Commons. (and a T stop) A convenience store on the corner. Whole Foods was a 10 min walk away. 2 restaurants flanked the building, and many more were a short walk away. There were so many super fun things to do that were a short walk (or T ride) away.
The main room was as described. The bathroom was much bigger than we expected. Great large shower. There was also a large closet which was very convenient. The building has security, and feels very safe and friendly. It has a rooftop deck with a beautiful view.
The neighborhood is really amazing. On the other side of the Commons are some quaint neighborhoods and antique shop areas to walk through. It was also a short walk to the harbor.
The apartment had internet which was great for browsing and looking up maps and info. It also has a tv.
The kitchenette was as described. Small, but it worked well and we cooked breakfast every day with no problems. There is a mini fridge, a range with oven and a dishwasher.
Thanks so much! We had a blast!
