Your modern chic place for 5 close to the best of what the city has to offer.

Stay in a very cool building in vibrant Union Square in Somerville. On the outside it's a historic police station; on the inside, it's ultra-modern apartments, and one of them has a cozy bedroom with double bed just for you.

One of the hottest new bars in town, great coffee shops, and popular restaurants are right in the neighborhood. Even more of the best restaurants in the city are just a short distance away in nearby Inman Square. Harvard University is just one mile away, and the bus stop right outside the building offers easy access to Cambridge and to Boston by either the Red or Green lines.
For those of you who prefer to cook for yourself, there's also a grocery store a quick walk away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • We really enjoyed staying at Brian's place. Although, unfortunately, we didn't meet him in person, he was very welcoming and we felt at home right away. His place was very clean and nicely furnished, our bed was very comfortable. We would definitely recommend staying with Brian.

  • Brian was really friendly and helpful and the place was very clean and comfortable. The area is great, near to Harvard and only a short bus trip to the subway. We had a fantastic stay. Thanks!

  • Arrived on a Friday afternoon while Brian was at work - easily picked up key from hiding spot and dropped stuff off.

    Apartment is clean and very nice, bed is super comfortable, location is immediately in Union Square. Apartment is definitely nice and modern!

    I would definitely stay with Brian again - we felt at home, coffee was waiting for us in the morning, and he is an excellent host!

  • Brian's place a was a comfortable and cozie place to stay on my visit to Boston. His apartment was awesome and location ideal for visiting the city. For those of you visiting with a car, parking is abundant. I would stay here again.

  • This was my first experience with airbnb. Trying to save a little money on a place to stay was my main objective. Esp since I'm very low maintenance and really just need a place to sleep. Brian and his home was amazing! The neighborhood was beautiful, the bus stop was across the street and a 7 min ride to the T station. His bldg is a police station that has been converted into condos, very nice inside and out. He was at work and left me the bldg code and where I could find my key. I had flown from Ft. Laud on a early flight so I was tired and wanted to shower and rest before leaving for Fenway Park. The condo was gorgeous, so much more than I expected. On the table was a pretty card welcoming me to Boston and to make myself at home. I could use the kitchen and the washer and dryer but didn't need to this trip. Ultra modern appliances, lighting throughout was perfect, very comfortable and spotless. I put my things in my room, spacious and beautiful. Went into the bathroom and I was in heaven! A large spa tub and shower! Forget the shower, I was treated to a jacuzzi bath. The bed was so comfy and I slept like a baby. I spent 4 nights this past Wed-Sun and would stay again in a heart beat. Brian is a charming and generous host. I was out early every day but coffee was made and waiting for me. Sunday morning he left me the most delicious raisin bread he had bought at the farmers market. I could go on and on about my glorious experience at Brians home. There was wireless, T.V. and a very large and extensive collection of books. Fabulous place to stay and location, location, location! My only problem with my review is that I really don't want the rest of the world to know what a find this place is because the next time I want to stay here I'm afraid he'll be booked solid! Thank you Brian, I will be visiting you again!

  • wonderful place.

  • I travelled to Boston with a few friends during Thanksgiving. We were surprised when we stepped in the apartment. It looks even better than it is on the photos. The decorations are so pretty that you can easily tell how thoughtful the lovely couple is. I strongly recommend this place if you're considering where to stay in Boston.
