Interaction with Guests
I will be present when you arrive. I work during the day but would be happy to get together for dinner or drinks with you after work. Questions about the city and the neighborhood? You can count on me :)
I arrived earlier than planned in Boston, I called Amid to know how to access the apartment and with the information I got it was quick and easy. Due to work commitments, I met personally Amid only after two days and we had a nice conversation. The apartment and the guest room with adjacent bathroom were in perfect conditions. Wifi worked as expected. The area where the apartment is located makes fast and easy to reach downtown and the Sea Port area. For business purpose is an ideal solution.
We arrived while Amid was out, but he had given us his phone number, which allowed him to buzz us in. There was a key waiting for us in the apartment, along with the information about how to access the Wifi. A little later, we met Amid. He was very welcoming and we enjoyed meeting him. He gave us information about where the good restaurants are, and he taughte me how to use Uber. :-) The apartment was spotless and very lovely. It has great large windows, and lots of light, which we love. We had a private room and bath. The apartment is in a large, new building in South Boston. It's less than a block away from the Boston subway, the T, which made it very easy to get anywhere we wanted to go, including to Harvard Square. It's about a 2 mile walk to the seaport area, and to the financial district. The walk took us by many interesting new buildings and small parks. The neighborhood is changing from what appears to have been an industrial area at one time to a residential and business area. It's adjacent to a lovely middle class residential area, which we would have explored if we had more time. Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts were on the same block.
Amid's apartment is clean and conveniently located. Getting in was not a problem. Across the street is a great diner for breakfast.
I did not set eyes on my host -- however I did receive a phone call chastising me for locking the door -- and further chastising me for not checking my email on my arrival. He complained that he would have to leave work to let his cleaning lady in! He had not -- and I checked our correspondence -- mentioned or requested that I leave the door in this urban location unlocked after my arrival, but seemed to think I should have intuited this and was quite irritable. I explained that it would never have occurred to me to leave any door to someone's home unlocked. (And further -- I would not want to leave my belongings in an unlocked city apartment. This isn't an island paradise -- it is south Boston.)
My last airbnb experience was pleasant in every way -- so I was really taken aback.
That said, the apartment itself is quite suitable if you are comfortable with leaving your stuff in an unlocked apartment/
Great place! I was in town for a conference, and the location was perfect. Amid is a wonderful host.
This was my first airbnb experience and any future ones have tough competition. Amid's place was great and he was great! Fast and thorough communication. The room was very clean and the bedding was fresh. The room is arranged so that you have an anteroom where you can close the door to the rest of the apartment, then behind that door is your bathroom and bedroom.
The location of this place is perfect. Diagonal from the red line T and across the street from Starbucks. Walking distance (about 35 min) from Fanuiel Square.
I cannot wait to stay here again!
