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 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.....
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.
This was a great place to stay for my quick overnight trip to Boston. Robert was a wonderful host. Expertly he provided me with directions from the airport to his home where he greeted me promptly and provided me with many suggestions for things to do and see during my stay. I found the room quite comfortable and the area of the house where I stayed exuded a well lived in personality and charm, with stacks of interesting books, paintings, and collectibles.
The location of the property couldn't be better as it is within easy walking distance to the T and Back Bay attractions. I would definitely stay there again in the future.
This was my first experience with airbnb and it was wonderful. Robert was a wonderful host. As soon as I got in, he gave me a map of Boston and told me about good restaurants for food, places to go and see. I had a wonderful experience and Robert was accommodating host. the apartment is at the heart of Boston, 5 minutes to Copley square, 4 minutes to south bay station and 20 minutes walk to Quincy market.
This was my third year staying with Robert in April and second stay in his first floor room. He has upgraded the bed since my last visit and the new bed felt good and I slept great. By now it feels more like visiting and old friend than staying at a stranger's place given the warm welcome and the great times we have shared together. His stories never seize to amaze and I greatly enjoyed my stay once again.
Other than the new bed the room looked and felt the same as before which means it's big with plenty of place, the heater kept me warm and the charm of the classic wood paneling and the beautiful fireplace is still there.
I'm really looking forward next April already for another stay!
