the host was initially good on email but a room change left us walking into a room with other people's things in it. Our room had been changed and though the host was very apologetic it meant we had to drag our 2 heavy suitcases up attic stairs. Bed linen was clean but the room itself was pretty shabby. The neighbourhood didn't feel safe at all. We chose this as it said free onsite parking but the host used this and the street parking was a tow away zone.
The stay was ok, but it was not what we were expecting. We did arrive early and she allowed us to rest even though they were not ready for us. The bedding was a futon and there was a second bed positioned/laying on the floor, so that was a little out of place. Also, right in front of the police station or substation and every police car that left had to run the siren. For one night, it was good, but if you are staying three or more, might have reconsidered. One very positive area was that she contacted me immediately after I sent an e-mail prior to arrival, so I was very grateful for that.
Spent 3 nights in Hermina ' s house in room A in the Basement and have a good time.
Hermina is very nice she invited me to have dinner with some of her friends and have a really good time.
They were others guests in the house but they are not bothering at all either if I had to share the bathroom I didn't have any problems and always find it free.
The house is close to the Subway and from there you can reach e asilo the center.
Do recomnend it if you go to Boston.
Perfect room, perfect stay. Hermina was really nice and we really enjoyed staying there while in Boston!

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.
