We really enjoyed our stay at Natalia's place. She and her daughter were very helpfull. The room was cozy and warm. We would definitely recommend it.
Natalia has a wonderful place and a lovely family. Our stay with them was nice, the room was exactly as in the picture, really clean and cozy. They are very attentive and help you with directions and recommendations. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe and it's really close to the MIT and the T red line. I would definitely recommend this accommodation!!! :)
Natalia is a wonderful host and we had a great time staying at her place. The room was lovely, the bathroom was super clean, and the bed was comfortable. There was a nice tea collection in the room; our favorite was the Wissotzky green tea from Russia! Walking to and from MIT campus was so pleasant; we would take either Sixth Street that connects to the pedestrian way or Third Street to make a stop at any of great restaurants along the way to Kendall. Natalia gave us suggestions on where to eat and provided us with some maps. It’s definitely a plus to be able to park our car in the neighborhood. Natalia was so kind to let us park early in the afternoon before we even checked in. On the last day of MIT Parent Orientation, she let us park our car until we were ready to leave. Natalia, her daughter Anna, and her younger son Charles are so hospitable and awesome; we highly recommend their place!
Notre séjour chez Natalia s'est très bien déroulé. La chambre est très propre, et la salle de bain privée très pratique. Le fait que l'entrée soit toute proche de la chambre permet de ne pas déranger les hôtes, quelle que soit l'heure à laquelle vous rentrez. La situation géographique est parfaite, cela permet de vivre dans un vrai quartier résidentiel, hors zone touristique, tout en ayant le métro tout proche, pour visiter le centre et les universités en particulier. La fille de Natalia nous a très bien accueillis, indiqué quelques restaurants, proposé des solutions de parkings... et les petites attentions (thé, dentifrice, savon...) étaient très agréables.
Natalia and here family were great and friendly hosts. Her House is quite lovely and in the second row of the Street. You mostly don´t here any street or traffic noise at all.
We just stayed there for one night but everything was really clean and we liked the fact, that you have your own bathroom.
Before we startet our sightseeing tour, she introduced us to all the Town Maps, gave us Ideas what we could do and where we would find different places!!
It was a short walk about 10minutes to the next train station and there were nice different restaurants around the Area.
If we come again to Boston we really would like to stay again at Natalias place.
Though our stay was brief and our check out was very early in the morning, Natalia was kind enough to accommodate all of us and our schedule. The room was comfortable, and very convenient. Also thoughtful was the visitor's parking pass, enabling us to park overnight. Natalia's place is convenient to the major attractions of Cambridge, plus Logan. Would definitely choose it again.
It was our first experience with airbnb and it was a great experience. Natalia was a wonderful host. She made us feel at home right away. She supplied us with maps and things to do and see. She even searched on internet to make sure we had the right directions so we would not get lost.
The room was clean and had everything we needed. It is very well situated in a safe residential neigborhood. The subway is within 7 minutes walking distance.
We really enjoyed our short stay and will not hesitate to return.
