About this listing
My home is an original Victorian townhouse in Boston's historical neighborhood. It has 4 floors with guest rooms upstairs.
This room is on the street level, front, and would have been originally the household dining room, now converted for guests.
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 bath on the same floor, but the bath is shared with one other guest and is accessible only from the abutting kitchen (which is shared by the owner a (at breakfast/dinner time)....most of the reviews on this site are related to this accommodation as rooms upstairs are often not available.....
Public transit is exceptionally easy to access. Parking of cars is a problem for on street parking, although public garages are nearby.
Other Things to Note
Reservations are for single guests.....additional guests are subject to an additional charge of $12 per night.
Smoking is not permitted inside the house.
Robert and Jacky are great! We talked a lot, and Robert gave me some great advises on seeing around Boston. The room is big and clean. There is even a cable TV in my own room. The location of the house is perfect, less than 5 mins walking to backbay station and the Copley park. Definitely would stay with them again if I hit the Boston next time!
Great stay!! absolutely love the place, elegant, clean and full of books! Location is unbeatable. Robert and Jacky are so nice~ Robert knows his way in Boston, i went with no plan what so ever but ended up finish all the major sites in the city, and went to the free Shakespeare play in the park as a bonus ;) i also love the fact that i get to meet other people in the same house, did go to dim sum with another traveler who stayed in 4th floor of the house :) if i go to Boston again, i will definitely stay with Robert and Jacky again.
This is my second visit. Room was clean/spacious/quiet, neighborhood is clean, safe, and (very) convenient. Air conditioning unit was there, which helped keep the room cool on a 90 F -degree day.
Robert & JiaQi respond quickly to messages, are very engaging in conversation, and have lots of interesting info to share about Boston!
The experience was great. Prime location. Nice accommodations. The host was very welcoming
It's an authentic Bostonian house with brick walls in a very convenient location. Correspondence w Richard was easy and he was very accommodating. Jackie (his assistant) welcomed me warmly.
