Cozy house in Dorchester, we were 3 young students and we stayed at the attic. The attic was huge! Everything was great and it was 5 min walk to the subway. Hermina wasn't around but she had a friend living at the house, if we needed any help. Great experience overall.
This Victorian house was an excellent place to stay in the Boston area. It was a short 5 minutes walk to the red line that brought us straight to city center, and the rooms and toilets were in great conditions. No complaints!
Hermina was easy to work with and help our company's interns with her place to stay. Location is great, right near the city. If you don't have to stay in the city, I recommend giving Hermina's place a try.
Hermina was an excellent host. While she was not there to let us in, the check in process was very smooth and easy. She provided easy and clear instructions to get to and into the property. The room was fantastic and catered to all our needs.
She was an attentive host and was kind enough to check in on us during our stay, via email.
The stay at this place was fun. It is in a real Boston neighborhood with the police station literally in the back yard. It was a well maintained room and Hermina was kind, welcoming and ready with suggestions where to eat. I got a chance to peek at the attic room everyone was talking about and I did not see the issues everyone was complaining of. Yes the ceiling was not high but there was alot of room up there. I hope she starts renting it out again and just warns people about the layout. If I had a large group I would love to use that room. We do not have alot of attic rooms in Texas and it would be a novelty to stay in one.
The house is very close to red T. My room has plenty of spaces. Hermina has prepared a lot of things that her guests needs. Overall the house is very clean.
Room C was a good stay! My sister and I were not at the house very often but it was perfect for what we needed. It was clean, very quaint, and close to the train station. My only critique is that the stairs to the room were a bit steep and the ceilings a bit low (the are sloped because its an attic room), which can get annoying if you are planning to stay for a long time.

Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston last 15 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. I love traveling and the experience of meeting locals and one way of doing it, is where do you stay.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
