About This Listing
Well located room with a single bed. Close to Boston and Cambridge, a 12 minute walk or 3 minute bus ride to the subway that takes you downtown in 12 minutes, a 3 minute walk to a bus that takes you to Harvard Square in 12 minutes (red line) and a 5 minute walk to a bus that takes you to MITin 15 minutes and the Longwood Medical area in 30 minutes. a 5 minute bus ride to Leechmere (green line) and much more
Boston now has a great bike rental system and we have a center a 12 minute walk from us. You can rent bikes using a credit or debit card and use the bikes for a day or more for very reasonable rates. You can return the bikes to the same place or to anywhere there is a center. Pretty cool!
This room is built out of very thin wood and has a plastic accordion door. We made it in response to seeing people renting out their couch for the same price but we thought having privacy would be better.The room is small but has room for hanging and storing clothes, a small desk for your laptop, a single bed, a chair, windows and several lighting options.
There is a living room for you to hang out in. Also a completely functional kitchen for your use with a round table and chairs.
There is a porch for people to hang out on and space for you to store your bikes.
The apartament is in the same house as the other apartament where we sleep and it is our plan to use both. We are readily available to guests and you are welcome to come visit us in our apartment in the same house.. We have lived in the Boston area a long time and can help you (if you need) get around and find fun things for you to do and see.
Please read our reviews and rest assured that it is our aim to be hospitable, very clean and to provide you with an exellent value and the very best airbnb experience possible.
Common curtesy, no drugs or excccesive noise after 11pm. guests can smoke on the porch.
Check in is at 3 but we are happy to receive bags early. We used to allow early incoming guests to shower before going out for the day but it was hectic and the guests that had not checked out felt rushed. Given all this we now only recieve bags.
Parking is by Permit which we provide you to place on your dashboard. It is up to you to follow the rules clearly written on the pass therefore you park at your own risk. We have only had one person get a ticket for not following the rules which are very easy.
Nice experience at Soledad's apartment! The room was clean and bright, the location was perfect and the neighborhood was quiet at night. Highly recommend for future travelers!
Soledad and Rodrigo were so friendly and I really felt at home away from home! It was the best I can wish for my first trip with airbnb.
The first day Soledad draw me some maps where I can find the best supermarket and gave me a map where she showed me some places I should visit - thank you Soledad for the union square donut tip, the donuts where great :)
The room was bigger than I thought and the 4 windows are great.
If I had any questions Soledad were always there to answer them.
I highly recommend this place - great place, great people and a great city as well!
The stay was very good ! Soledad is very kind person and is very fast to response to any requests ! Definitely a recommended place ! Hope to be back again !
Wonderful lady Soledad. She represents high standard of duty care including moral understanding which she was not obligated to me a host. Neighbourhood was peaceful. I highly recommend Soledad in her hosting business. My best wishes for her and family.
Every step of the way, I was made to feel welcome. Soledad provided excellent directions from the airport on public transportation and took the time with me to help me find my way around the area. The value for this room was excellent.
The neighborhood was very nice. Safe and very close to a bus stop where several routes pass by. I also tried to walk to the Orange line subway stop, which only took about 10 minutes, a very nice morning walk.
I had the economy room, simple but very clean. The twin bed is comfortable and there are plenty of hangers to use and lot of windows! The is even a small desk and an armchair. I really enjoy the stay.
The living room was nice, just like what's shown on the photo, but I didn't have time to use it. There is also a nice kitchen.
The other guests who shared the same apartment are very nice, but I didn't have time to socialize. We kept the common area clean. There was only one awkward incident. On my first morning, when I woke up, the other guests had already occupied the bathroom for the 30+ minutes I put aside for my morning routine. Eventually, I had to run out to use the conference hotel bathroom :). It was totally due to lack of planning on my side. The issue was easily resolved the next morning with a little coordination with other guests the night before.
Overall, my stay was very pleasant.
Soledad was very welcoming and the room and bathroom were both clean and ideal for a night's stay.

About the Host, Soledad And Rodrigo
I, Soledad am Chilean and Rodrigo is Colombian. We are social, lovers of all things art, music and travel.
My hispanic upbringing made me hospitable and domestically inclined. I love great food as a social ritual and cooking as an expression of love.
We are open hearted and abhor judgemental people. We love life and find joy in the tiniest of things.
We enjoy experiencing places by meeting "normal" people doing everyday things.
