This room is on the street level, front, and would have been originally the household dining room, now converted for guests.

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.
Host was not present, but his assistant was very helpful to show me around the apartment. Clean bed, clean towels, and a overall good place. Great stay for the night in a great neighborhood in Boston.
I had a pleasant stay at Robert's place. He was a great host and gave me many useful tips and advices to enjoy my stay in Boston. The place was clean and situated at nice and central location. Thanks Robert!
The host was very friendly, but the house was very cluttered-- packed with stuff. Location is excellent: 1 block to Back Bay T stop, near the South End corridor park, great for a walk or run, near good restaurants, bars, shops.
Very friendly! Flexible Check-In time. The host showed me places to visit! Really good history.
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.
