The listing is accurate. We reserved Room A, and we were put in Room A of the house. The other house guests were very nice and helpful with questions we had.
The house is only a 4 minute walk from the T station. Location is amazing. There were plenty of places within walking distance to grab food.
The host was not present during our stay, and the email she sent detailing the how/what/who of getting in to the property was slightly disorganized. In it, she told us how to get to a different room than our reservation. She also didn't let us know how to get in to the building, so we had to ring the doorbell until someone opened the door. That guest provided us with the info on how to get in, and everything was smooth after that.
The room was very comfortable and even had its own private mirror and sink. It was a fairly quiet location, and it happens to be right next to a Boston PD substation so safety wasn't a concern.
Overall, we would stay here again. While communication was prompt at times it was disorganized. We were able to deal with that, though, and everything was smooth.
We had a great time staying at Hermina's. There were other travelers from all over the world staying in other rooms, so it was fun to meet them and socialize. Room A is large, cozy and the beds are comfortable. There were no issues with us arriving late or needing to store a bag after checking out. We would definitely stay here again.
Always a great place to stay! Have tried several rooms, they are all very comfortable.
Mrs Hermina is a very nice lady. The apt is lovely and clean. Very well organized. We loved it!
Zu dritt schliefen wir für drei Nächte im sehr gemütlich eingerichteten und klimatisierten Keller des Hauses. Die nächste Metrostation (Red Line) ist 5 Minuten entfernt und man erreicht damit die Park Street in ungefähr 15 Minuten. In der Nähe vom Haus gibt es mehrere Einkaufsläden, Bars und Fressbuden.
Ich würde aufjedenfall nochmal bei Hermina übernachten, falls ich Boston wieder besuche.
Hermina was nice and L'Auberge Espagnole was a good place to stay for the price it was in Boston for a night or two. Close to the train and really easy to navigate!

About the Host, Hermina
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.
