Boston house and hotel is very expensive, so please don't expect condition like hotel with this price. But we provide all the basic living condition and have kitchen available. If you look for your honey moon stay, please keep this place away :) :)
At the beginning my first impression was really bad. I was coming at night and I was scared entering this pretty ruined building. Pictures doesn't show things that you see after opening the door: staircase etc. Moreover room that I have selected was also in bad shape with destroyed window shutters, leaky windows - so the room was cold and loud because of train running close to the window. There was not even a decent door. Pictures doesn't show this... I was thinking about leaving and about that I have lost the money...
I have looked around and found empty room in better shape - warm and with airtight window and with solid door. Manager is a nice guy who agreed without hesitation to rebooking the room. Moreover he allowed me to check-out later than it is pointed in rules. So plus for being nice and easy-going.
Location is also very good - close to the sea and the subway.
So the summarize: I do not regret the choice - just by booking it expects pretty basic accommodation standard.
