No smoking inside, take the trash out from the room, please take off the bed sheets and leave them on the bed, no need to make the bed.
late arrivals or early leave please consider other guests may be sleeping
thank you for all
Host was very nice. Worked with me on an issue I had. Gave very good directions and instructions. The house was clean; there was fresh fruit offered. Was able to sleep well.
The neighborhood is really mixed and a bit more 'real' than where I live in Madison. I did not have any problems getting around using the subway and felt safe enough walking with my bags to the terminal at night. (Good to stay alert though).
Overall, a good experience and I saved quite a bit of $. Will consider staying here again.
We got reservation with her with little advance, but coming there for the 1 night we stayed there was great!
Hermina was very friendly and helpful, and the accommodation was great, very well situated too.
We slept on the top floor, under the slanted roof, but we felt safe and at home.
We had a great experience at Hermina's house. It was clean tidy and there was plenty of room (we were in the attic room). We met Hermina briefly and she was very friendly. I would definitely stay there again.
Hermina makes you feel comfortable at home. Everything is well equipped. The house is near the transit stop and convenient from the airport and South End bus station. The room is nice and rather spacious,
Our stay with Hermina was very pleasant. The place is located only minutes away from a subway station, making it super convenient to get around. Hermina was very professional and attentive. Even before we got there, she had sent detailed instructions so that we could find the place in no time. Overall, we had a great time in Boston, thank you!

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.
