  • Très bel appartement, spacieux et très propre.
    Peut être un peu loin du centre.
    Nous recommandons !

    July 2014
  • Our experience here was amazing! Hermina wasn't around but her and Donna were very helpful with our questions, and checking up to make sure everything was going well. The neighbourhood is alright, the best thing is that the house is very close to the T and a few shops and restaurants. The house itself is very comfortable, it was just a bit hot in the summer. Also, be aware that the Boston Police are right behind the house, so you're safe but there is a chance of noise late at night. Overall our stay here was very enjoyable, a perfect place to come home to.

  • A very convenient, spacious and quiet spot with easy access to the Red Line and lots of great Vietnamese restaurants. We had a great stay and highly recommend!

  • Great place that perfectly met our needs-- we were a big group needing an affordable place close to public transit. Beds were comfortable and place was nice and clean. We didn't get a chance to meet Hermina, but her manager was nice and helpful. Thanks!

    April 2014
  • Perfect, actually. We needed to get to various locations in the city, so having a place somewhat central was key. Not to mention, being in the heart of some great Vietnamese restaurants was a bonus. Hermina made sure that all of our needs were met. Strongly recommend.

    March 2014
  • Hermina house is so nice and not to far from Boston center . We were 6 , and i was afraid to be a little bit small but finally the bedrooms are large and living room room very confortable . We ´ve not met Hermina but Donna her helper was really friendly with us .
    I recommend this place .

  • The apartment was clean, spacious and had all of the advertized amenities. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend staying here if you need a place close to town.

    November 2013
  • Hermina was great,. We liked the townhouse, and the price. It was clean and cozy. I do want to mention that the wireless internet was very spotty, so we were mostly unable to use the internet. Also, the heat in the house was broken for a while but Hermina had a repairman out to fix it quickly, and provided us with a space heater in the mean time. We always felt save but a lot of people did mention to us that this wasn't the safest neighborhood. The bedrooms can be a bit noisy at night because the windows open up to the parking lot of a police station. Overall we liked the house and Hermina was very nice.

    October 2013
  • Hermina was very friendly, helpful and kind and the accommodation we rented from her was indeed very spacious and well equipped. We had a few issues regarding cleanliness which she acknowledged and tried to help with in the circumstances. Dorchester, the neighborhood, is however not the best area (quite run down) and we did not feel very safe on the streets, despite the police station next door. On the plus side, her home was very close to the 'T' station for travelling quickly into the centre of Boston. A good place for families to stay who don't mind noise, but not for people who are looking for quiet accommodation, especially as different sections of the house are rented out to other Airbnb guests simultaneously!

    October 2013
  • Great Location in Boston.
    all was clean and friendly, we enjoyed our breakfast outside in the sun :-)
    we can highly recommend this place for a stay in Boston.

    kind regards, Jens and Friends

About
Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston last 15 years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in one of the 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.
