I had to arrange travel for employees at my workplace. Brahma was very responsive and helpful when it came to setting up this rental. I was booking travel for a lot of locations, and really appreciated the ease of communicationg with him!
For French travelers :
Appartement très agréable, propre, fonctionnel.
Brahma est un hôte très sympa et disponible, il est de bons conseils ! Il nous a orienté vers un très joli parc près de la maison avec une vue imprenable sur Boston. Nous étions 4 et sommes resté 3 nuits, tout s'est très bien passé.
Le quartier est calme, il faut compter 10 min de marche pour aller au métro et 10 min de métro pour se rendre en centre-ville
Le plus: le balcon
Le bémol (s'il faut en trouver un...): la pression de la douche ;)
Sachez également que si l'annonce indique une capacité de 4 personnes, il y a un canapé lit donc vous pouvez tenir à 6 (prévenez bien sûr l'hôte au préalable!)
Brahma was a great host overall , answering all our questions and making sure we knew where things were in the apartment & the East Boston neighborhood where the apartment is located. He has a lot of knowledge about Boston history & landmarks if you are interested in this. Brahma was called out of town unexpectedly but checked us in over the phone and "upgraded" us to LOTUS ( which is on the 2nd floor of the 3 story building ) & is described as a" Luxury Apartment." The location of the rental was perfect for us but this isn't the ideal neighborhood for most travelers. It is a working class & lower income area with lot's of trash littering the sidewalks & streets. A supermarket is a 20 minute walk but there are small corner Mom & Pop Latino markets every few blocks. The main plus is the close location to Logan airport & T station making getting from & to the airport a breeze. The city provides a free shuttle to the airport @ the station! Also a great Mexican Restaurant Angela's which serves a tasty breakfast & offers fresh squeezed OJ is just a few steps away. LOTUS, the "Luxury Apartment" as it is described, is comfortable overall but truly lacked the luxury part. The bed was comfy and but no fancy high thread count bedding, furniture was mismatched and old and the dining room table was a folding picinic table with a plastic red checkered tablecloth covering it. We had a nice amount of space to cook & relax in but the description of the apartment should be changed to "eclectic style". The kitchen has very high counter tops so being a shorter person is a problem here although there is a step stool provided. Kitchen lacked a few things like a good knife for chopping veggies( only 1 serrated knife). Bathroom has a combo tub w/ jets & shower, hot water was not a problem but if you like a high pressure shower it's not going to happen( old plumbing /building). Nice towels were provided but they were brand new w/ tags still on them so I had to wash them before I could use them ($7 for wash & dry). The apartment is housed in a row-house which looks pretty rough from the entrance as it is in need of some paint & repairs but the security system to enter the house is a comforting detail for out of town travelers. There is free street parking in front or down the block if you drive or rent a car. The apartment was fairly clean ( not clean to my personal standards though) quiet and felt safe so I would recommend it as a place to land if you are in Boston for a day or more. I do think it should be priced slightly under the price we paid but Boston is not a place where you will find cheap rentals, temporarily or long...
Accueil très sympathique. Le logement a beaucoup de charme. Le centre ville est très accessible. Bon accueil. Brahma nous a founi beaucoup de renseignements sur la ville.
Although brief our stay at Blossom was very enjoyable. Brahma spent some time explaining where everything was around the area and even gave us a bit of history in Boston. He went above and beyond what we expected. Definitely worth staying again!
Brahma was extremely congenial, helpful and cooperative. We are grateful for his hospitality. The location of the apartment and room arrangements inside the apartment were very convenient for our situation. On the negative side, one of the bedrooms is very small. Much of the remodeling and redecorating that Brahma has done in his building have been done very well. The Blossom apartment, too, will be more attractive and comfortable when Brahma has completed his projects there. We highly recommend that you contact Brahma if you are looking for reasonable accomodations in that part of Boston!
