Boston house and hotel is very expensive, so please don't expect condition like hotel with this price. But we provide all the basic living condition and have kitchen available. If you look for your honey moon stay, please keep this place away :) :)
I couldn't find the place when I arrived late at night. Didn't feel comfortable with area - but, it was late and I was traveling alone, so stayed at a hotel. Cant rate the accomodations.
The neighborhood did not look safe (dirty houses with broken windows all around, encountered dangerous looking guys walking around with baseball bats etc.) While itis not too bad, because the beach is right across the beach and things there look better, we did not feel very safe.
Our room was dusty and was not cleaned very well. While the sheets were not dirty, they did not smell fresh. Since the house is right by the metro station, you could hear the noise of trains stopping every 15 min till the midnight.
clean, simple, not comfy.
Rex war nicht persönlich zu sehen, beantwortet aber emails.
Im Haus waren 4 Räume vermietet, wir hatten 2.
Nachts ist das eine dunkle Gegend, das Haus ist von Aussen schäbig. Man geht über eine enge knarzende Treppe nach Oben. Eng, sehr einfach, Gemeinschaftsklo/Dusche, d.h. morgens anstehen.
Zwei von drei Betten waren gemacht, auf Rückfrage haben wir erfahren, dass die Wäsche auf einem Bett benutzt war, die frischen Betttücher haben wir einer Kammer neben der Küche gefunden, noch leicht feucht.
Vielleicht sollte man doch etwas mehr ausgeben, für etwas mehr Komfort.
Thank you Rex, was a nice stay. Really near the beach. Everything went good with the passwords for the apartment. It was a little bit loud because the apartment is near the train route.
All in all a good place for that price
I left early because, honestly, I wasn´t satisfied. But that is definately also my fault and at least my problem. I should have get more information before booking and I should have seen what to expect. For this price it is ok, for sure. The problem was that my room wasn´t clean. Sand on the bed etc... I left after first night. In the morning, when I woke up, somebody in the room next to me has thrown something against the wall, again and again. So I was not corious about what the person was doing in there, so I just left. But ok, some people might don´t see such things as a problem - I did. Rex was really helpfull and had a lot of informations for check-in and how to get into the house, how to connect to the Wi-Fi (worked perfectly) I really apreciate that. At the end: Is the Budget low - you need to know what to expect! Anyways, thank you Rex
This was my first time using an airbnb place and was a bit skeptical. I got this place b/c I wanted something cheap and was only planning on being there to sleep and shower. So if you want basics, and no frills, this is it. It's an older home, so if you're expecting a Holiday Inn experience, you won't get it here. It's more like a college dorm. I did have air conditioning though, my things were safe, but my room was right where the sun comes up, so by 6am, it was very bright in my room.
I suppose the hard thing about these type of arrangement is the roommates. They were very quiet and we had little interaction. They were also Chinese, so it was hard to communicate, though they spoke English. They were very nice, but when you're sharing a bathroom with people you don't know, it's a bit awkward.
The town of Revere is interesting. It's an old beach town, the oldest public beach, but doesn't have much there anymore. The pizza place was great, though, and the people working there were very friendly. The beach also looked clean and the waves of the Atlantic Ocean were minimal.
In the end, if you want basic and can handle dorm/camp like conditions, this place is fine. If I had taken my wife instead of a friend, I'm sure she would have bailed for a hotel after the first night.
Rex was very helpful and attentive. I never saw him, but he was quick to reply and was helpful.
Accommodation student like and very dirty
Location however great for public transport, airport, downtown boston and beach, wifi no issues,
Rex sent me an email way before the date of my arrival to change the location at which I will be hosted. He gave me an apartment at a better location, but it was not the whole apartment as was promised online. We were still satisfied with our stay though!
Had a great stay...everything was set up nicely. My only complaint is that it wasn't clean enough...Otherwise great! Thanks!
pros: affordable price, convenient location (walking distance to subway blue line), the bed looks good, the host looks nice.
cons: there is no off street parking place anymore, host should revise the description. the bathroom need a little cleaning work. no waste basket in the bedroom, only in the kitchen.
