I stayed in Hermina's lovely home in late February and loved my time there. The instructions were so simple as how to get there and was no more than a 5 minute walk from public transit.
The room itself was bigger than I anticipated and had all the amenities of home. I would highly recommend anyone who is visiting the Boston area to stay with Hermina!
Always a great place to stay when I'm in town... Really makes me feel comfortable and cozy..
Hermina's home was comfortable and warm.. She was gone the two nights we were there and she graciously put us in her biggest & warmest room. Parking was challenging but we did arrive after two weeks of record snowfall ! Had all the amenities that we could ask for and more.
The directions on how to get there were so easy to follow and the house was amazing.
Definitely recommending this place to my friends
Uncomfortable, rooms are like cheap hostel. Very cold in rooms. House is located in korean/vietnamiese district. Only 1 parking place for 4 rooms.
It felt like home. With everything needed in the kitchen and the bathroom. I loved the bookshelves in our room with books and titles I didn't expect to see at visitor's disposition.
It felt a little chilly getting into our room first but we shortly put the heat on and felt much better.
My husband wished for a brand-new looking sheets and towels; I personally along with our sons were satisfied and found everything to be decent and warmly cozy!
When we came back in the evening one of the other guests in the upper floor had locked the door from the inside and would not respond to the bell. We called the manager whose name and number were provided by Hermina. She apologized and drove for 30 minutes to come and rescue us; allowing us to enter after she made it from the back door. That was the only hickup!
Hermina was an amazing host, we felt more than welcomed in her house. He great hospitality enabled us to fully enjoy our few-days stay in Boston during the Thanksgiving period. Settled in a quiet neighborhood, the house is very close to the T-red line metro, which takes you to the downtown center. Me and my friend would definitely stay at this place again if planning to visit Boston! :)

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.
