L'auberge espagnole is well located, very close to public transportation.
It's in a very quiet street.
The room was clean and Hermina leaves a lot of thinks to help you for cooking and preparing breakfeast.
Even if she is not at home, she is very easy to contact. And can answer all your questions.
Het appartement dat wij bij Hermina huurden was perfect voor een bezoek aan Boston. Prima voorzieningen, rustige straat en vlakbij de metro. En de housekeeper, Donna, was heel lief en behulpzaam
The host was very communicative. The accommodations were as described and comfortable.
Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de rencontrer Hermina qui était en voyage à ce moment là. La chambre était dans le sous sol, elle était spacieuse mais très basique.
The place was good for the price and very close to the T station. Hermina was helpful with changing our reservation when one of our guests cancelled last minute. Much appreciated.
Good location,very close to T station,convenient to anywhere.
Hermina always replied very quickly,very friendly and helpful when I ask about any questions. Her description on how to get to the house from airport, subway station and other directions was very detailed, so we found it without any difficulties.
We lived in Hermina's house for 3 nights, But we haven't seen her, Maybe we went out in the morning and returned home in the evening. But we feeled that someone must have been to clean the room during the day. The house itself was very clean and the room is very space and comfortable.
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.

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.
