This is a spacious bedroom (formerly the dining room) of a 19th century row house .The room has a double bed, and is quite spacious.....has a private bath, but the bath is accessible only from the abutting kitchen (which is shared by the owner and one other tenant (at breakfast/dinner time)....most of the reviews on this site are related to this accommodation as rooms upstairs are often not available.....
Reservations are for single guests.....additional guests are subject to an additional charge of $12 per night.
Loved Robert's house!
Classic South End/Beacon Hill brownstone.
I hope this house never condos or changes.
The room that we had was perfect and the central location of the house topped it all off.
Robert and his helper were very helpful and accomidating on our one night stay.
I highly recommend a stay here if you plan a trip to Boston!
Definitely read all of the reviews before booking if you are very particular about where you are staying. We stayed in the first floor room which wasn't bad- it's extremely old and pretty quirky but overall a large room and the apartment is on a BEAUTIFUL street and in a perfect location. The bathroom was VERY DIRTY - it literally a layer of dirt on the floor. The rest of the house was just as the reviews said.. full of books and smelled kind of funny. Robert was very nice even though we only met him briefly. They were also very accommodating and let us leave our luggage until later in the evening.
Robert was a wonderful host. He greeted me at the door and we had a nice discussion about literature and history. He is an expert on the history of the Titanic. The room was on the first floor and very quiet and comfortable. The bath was down the hallway and had a very nice shower. I slept well and hope to return to the same room someday.
I was very busy during my stay in Boston, so the quality of my lodging was not a high priority. The location was perfect for my needs, as was the price. The entire building, however, was extremely cluttered. There were piles of books and papers everywhere, including the hallways and kitchen. Had I needed to spend time in my apartment beyond sleeping, I would have been very uncomfortable.
Roberts is a great person, so friendly and he said a lot about Boston. Her house is in a very good place, near de subway and so quiet.
Great place and host who is very helpful!
Friendly host and an incredible location in Back Bay area of Boston. I would say an air filter or A/C unit would improve an already great place to stay for a few nights. Thank you.
Roberts was a wonderful host and gave me a lot of information on what to see in Boston, including practical details on how to get there (bus, train, bike).
Robert was a very accommodating host and the room was just what I needed. There was even a desk for me to sit at, which was really helpful. He provided clean a clean towel and linens, and the feel of the old brownstone was really nice.
Robert's place was ridiculously cheap for the area and as a host he was very helpful in giving me information about the city and how to get around, he also provided me a clean towel which was nice.
The room didn't have a lock on the door but I wasn't too concerned. The bathroom was in the kitchen area, not next to the room so that was a little awkward but wasn't too bad.
As for the condition of the room itself, it was a little dirty and had a strange smell, kind of a mix of mustiness and pets. I would say if you are looking for a cheap place to stay that's in a nice neighborhood, go for it--it was a five minute walk from public trans and the conference hotel that I had to go to every morning. But if creature comforts are your deal this is not the kind of room you go home to in order to recharge. It's bare bones--but at $90-something a night, that's expected.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
