Loved the space and the neighborhood. Very convenient since it's very close to the T. Hermina was very kind.

Hermina's space was a great location to spend the night. After touring Boston all day it was great to return to the Airbnb to relax for the night. It was quiet and very comfortable. I'll absolutely keep this in mind if I'm ever back near Boston

I needed something quick and close to public transit. The room was clean, big, cozy, comfortable, and everything was as described . I was only here for 1 night but well worth every penny.

This was my first time booking an Air B&B, and it was a blessing to have this in the Boston area. It was a great location, and Hermina was a nice host that communicated well, even ahead of time. I have learned though that I need to look at descriptions of homes more thoroughly before I book as I had not realized that I wouldn't have a private bathroom. The other guests that used the bathroom kept it clean, so that was a help and I never even saw them. I also had not realized at first that I would be in the basement, but the room was cute and had lots of amenities (including a sink). I also liked that we could keep the door locked to our room as it helped us feel secure. Overall, my friend and I were happy and thankful for this place to stay.

We stayed at the basement room and there was ample space for sleeping, cooking and other activities. The place is also close to red line (Field's Corner station) so it's very convenient to access downtown Boston, and even Cambridge (though Cambridge could take ~30 minutes of train ride). If you're into Vietnamese food, this place is close to several authentic restaurants as well (Saigon Seafood, Anh Hong etc...). Hermina was a great host. She attended to our every need and frequently checked in with us to make sure our stay was ok. Overall a great stay.

Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many 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. Traveling is part of my life and staying with family opens chance to meet local people.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
