Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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!

  • I had a great stay in Boston and the location of Robert's house is excellent! You're in the heart of Boston and Back Bay station is only 3 min away by foot! Robert provided me with helpful instructions on how to reach his place from the airport. The room is big and the double bed is spacious and comfy. The only downside of the room is that you have to access the bathroom through the kitchen which is used by the other residents of the house.

  • Robert was a really nice host. The house is perfectly located, a few minutes from the Back Bay station and 5min from Copley square.
    We arrived in the afternoon and Robert was there to welcome us and give us the key of the house, we had the 1st floor room. The room was spacious and clean, the private bathroom was great too.
    I recommend to stay at Robert's place if you're looking for a nice host and a great room in Boston!

  • This brownstone is a great place to stay, especially if you are coming in via Amtrak. It is within walking distance of a lot of awesome things, too.

    Keep in mind that this is someone's house so if you are expecting hotel "clean", you may be disappoint. I had a great stay and will definitely plan to stay here, again.

  • It's our first visit to Boston. We got to Boston late that day, it was 9:00 PM and we hadn't find a place to stay. I tried to search on Airbnb app if there's any luck, and Robert literally saved us for the night. Beautiful Victorian building and neighborhood. Books about Chinese history and literature were filled in the stairhall and in the living room. Robert is a Chinese history and literature professor and I am Chinese. We talked until very late that night and Robert invited us to walk around this beautiful and historic community after that. He is so considerate and offered us generous help for out touring in Boston. He sent us the Boston south station when we left. By the way, he is 65+ years old. Thank you so much, Robert.

  • I had a pleasant experience there. I stayed on the top floor for the first night, it was such a lovely and cozy room filled with books. the second night i moved to the main floor (the bigger room) . I loved the building, it was old and characteristic and you could see it's been through a lot. It added so much to my Boston experience.. Robert is a very interesting man that I was overall completely happy with my stay. Robert is a very interesting and cultured man. he helped me plan by sightseeing and told me a bit about the history of the town.. If I ever go back to Boston, I'll stay there again.

  • Prof Robert is lovely person. He guided me very well on places to visit nearby and assured me that public transport in Boston is good to rely. But I felt bad when he provided me ground room even when my booking was for first floor. Kitchen attached to room was horribly mismanaged. Room on ground floor was stuffy and stinky. There are book all around and I did not feel like staying in that room.

  • Jacky, Robert's friend was so pleasant and understanding when my flight arrived much later than planned. In terms of the room, I felt like I was sleeping in a well-stocked library but I did not mind because I love books. I even wrote down a couple titles to acquire for my own library. The room was comfortable and served my purpose while I attended my conference. I felt very fortunate that I was within walking distance from the Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel. I would definitely return.
