I had another excellent stay at Hermina's home this year, as I did last April. The home is clean and well-kept, and the bathroom was very nice - there is a towel warming rack which made stepping out of a hot shower into a chilly Boston morning(we stayed in March) that much more bearable!
The house is VERY close to transit(a few minutes walking) which takes you right into the heart of the city!
It is also near a handful of restaurants, as well as a grocery store, if you would rather buy and prepare your own food.
This room also has it's own entrance, which is a nice thing to have.
My only "complaint" is that the WiFi had problems connecting in this room. Elsewhere in the house there were never any issues, and we were able to connect from time to time, but it was unpredictable. For the price and the comfort, though, it's not so much a complaint as a VERY MINOR nuisance.
Hermina herself is, as always, a gracious and helpful host, being amenable to our slightly off-book(so to speak) requests, and made us feel as welcome as though we were staying with a relative.
La maison est facile à trouver, proche des transports, dans un quartier bien équipé. Hermina a été une hôte très agréable. L'espace à vivre est très bien agencé, confortable et laisse une grande intimité. Je recommande vraiment cette maison.
Great location, host gave excellent directions. Myself and two friends stayed in the basement, nothing glamorous but it met our need of having a place to lay our heads.
Clean room, affordable, perfect or what I needed for a short work trip on a budget. Hermina was helpful and available throughout.
Hermina in Dorchester ist eine nette Gastgeberin, die wir, da wir selber nur kurz dort waren, nur einmal gesehen hatten. Die Unterkunft ist ist preisleistungsmäßig entsprechend. Das Badezimmer ist mit einem anderen Apartement zu teilen. Die Nachbarschaft ist ruhig. Es gibt eine nette kleine Terrasse hinter dem Haus, der Parkplatz bei Hermina ist kostenlos und die Subway direkt in der Nähe, was den Anschluss an Boston gut ermöglicht, da in Dorchster nicht so viel zu erleben ist. Bis 1Uhr nachts kommt man damit zurück nach Dorchster.
The house was beautiful! Everything in the house is good ! And the room D we live is wonderful

Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston last 15 years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in oldest neighborhoods in Boston (Dorchester). The house is beautiful, big, clean and colors are my addition to its charm. I love colors you can see it in the pictures.
I love the idea of B&B and now I have chance to host people from the world in my own house. I love traveling and the experience of meeting locals and one way of doing it, is where do you stay.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
