The room was spacious, and Hermina provided plenty of blankets, towels, etc. There was even a little sink and space heather in our room which was very nice. It was very convenient to get to the T line.
Hermina's house was great, really welcoming and pretty, and the room was large with its own bathroom. It can be a *little* loud in the mornings, because it's right under the kitchen, but if you're an early riser then that shouldn't be a problem.
The place is a great. Very clean and comfortable. We stayed in room A and it has a lot of space. It's not in the city center, but transportation is easy.
The location is very close to the T which was great for getting around. Overall the accommodations were good. Her assistant was very helpful and quick to respond when we had questions.
Very sweet place, large room, easy to find and park a car.
3 minutes from the subway stop
Good communication with Hermina, I recommend her.
Stayed for just one night but had everything i needed- Good access to the Train station and a warm clean bed, the room was also large. Hermina was a good host and i would recommend her place to friends
I had a positive experience staying at Hermina's. It was a convenient walk to the train and there were several restaurants nearby as well. The room and home was clean. I did not get to meet Hermina, but she was available to answer all of my questions through messaging.

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.
