Following is a review of apartment 979759 at Emerson Place, Boston. I would not use Seamless again and would not recommend them. 1 week prior to our arrival date, Seamless phoned me to advise that the reserved apartment was not available but alternative accommodation would be provided. I would describe the manner of this call as unprofessional eg I was repeatedly talked over in a very loud tone, when I remarked that I was not deaf and there was no need to shout at me, I received an apology and a comment that the volume on the phone would be turned down but shortly afterwards the loud tone resumed. I was told in this call that I didn’t have a choice in the matter but to take the replacement apartment on offer, I was also offered a refund +10% on what I paid in order to find my own hotel. When I advised that I wanted Seamless to find a suitable replacement apartment, it was agreed that a link would be sent to me in order to review the proposed replacement. When I returned the call within an hour to advise that the proposed apartment was acceptable I was told that a 2nd option had also been sent through for review, when I advised that I’d like the opportunity to review the 2nd apartment I was told (i) that Seamless were fed up of dealing with me, (ii) that the issue had been dragging on for a month and I was being too difficult to deal with as I kept rejecting everything Seamless offered to fix the issue, (iii) that the proposal had been sent to my wife 3 days earlier and she rejected it (iv) that AirBnB had advised me of the change previously. None of the above statements were correct. It was only when Seamless called me by the wrong name and I told them that the first I knew of the issue was when they rang me 45 minutes earlier and I asked them who they thought they were talking to that they realised they had their facts wrong. Another apology was then forthcoming. We did stay in the replacement apartment, it was described as 5 star, it’s not, 3 at best, eg the bathroom needs renovation, photos can be provided of the holes in the walls around the shower outlet. The swimming pool included in the apartment description can only be accessed by payment of a $40 daily fee per adult. The photos provided on the site are not of the actual apartment which is very bare. The location is very central, it is clean.
It is clear that the guest has mistaken his communication with SeamlessTransition with his communication with his housing provider.
However, we take responsibility for the provider's conduct and am truly sorry we did not know earlier of the problems.
It was a wonderful experience staying in apt. Everything was well taken care of. Will come again.
The apartment was amazing. A really nice kitchen that we actually used to make breakfast in each morning. The beds in the two bedrooms were super comfy. They even provided two things of toiletries for each bathroom. The location right by the Prudential center had great access to the rest of Boston either by using the T or just walking around. I would definitely stay there again.
It was a pleasure staying in this appartment.
Very comfortable, clean, good service and well located.
We will certainly return!

The apartment was spacious, well provisioned, and the location couldn't be better. The concierge was very helpful. Even in cold blustery weather, it was easy to get to places.
We found this apartment to be very comfortable and easy walking distance to shopping and public transit.
Irina from Seamless Transition was very helpful prior to and during our stay.
One frustration was the level of noise during the day caused by construction in the courtyard. It wouldn't pose a problem to most people but we had our two-year-old with us. Poor guy couldn't sleep during his afternoon nap because of all of the construction noise.
I agree with a previous reviewer in regards to the mattresses. The aren't very comfortable and should be replaced.
Beyond these two issues and a couple other minor issues (which were resolved by Irina) our stay was great. We would definitely stay again (permitting the construction is done!).
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
