A clean and comfortable Victorian house to stay. Unexpected free upgrade to a big room without additional charge. Hermina is so kind that she allowed to check in early when we reach Boston early in the morning.
Our second stay with Hermina. She is always kind and makes her guests feel at home.
I never actually made it to Boston to stay with Hermina, but it's worth noting that Hermina contacted me almost immediately to say hello and give directions/instructions for the house after I booked a room with her. She responded to all of my messages promptly, and was very warm and courteous. If I ever do stay in Boston, I will definitely reserve with her.
Hermina was very accommodating in allowing us to bring our bags early and leave them in the house after check out as our flight was later that night. However there wasn't much for breakfast and it wasn't until our last morning that there was a loaf of bread and a box of Cheerios. Apart from that it was a great location for getting around the city and to the airport and perfect for our needs.
Herminia is a great host. She helped us with all what we needed. Close to the subway.
Good situation really close to the subway that leads to downtown Boston !! Although the room was under the roof so it was really hot and we could hear the cars on the street. Otherwise the host was really nice and friendly.

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.
