We came to Boston from the west coast, and stayed at Hermina's place for three evenings.
We were uncertain in our arrival times and etc, but she was warm and welcoming, and gave us via text and email, all of the information we needed to arrive whenever.
The room was clean and quiet as was the bathroom. Its's safe, the Boston Police Headquarters is a block away. We used both a car as well as the T, and found both easy to manage.
There were not a lot of local breakfast, lunch-type places, but we did not spend much time in Dorchester anyway.
If you seek a simple, quiet, clean place to sleep, I think this is a good choice. Its not fancy, but it is quiet and comfortable.
We did not get a chance to meet Hermina, but she was easily reached online before and during our trip. There was a minor miscommunication (we hadn't received the code to enter the house beforehand), but everything was sorted after a phone call, which she answered immediately. The room was clean, and the bed was comfy. The house is also conveniently located near the subway. Hermina also allowed us to leave the luggage in the house after checkout time, which was a huge help!
Hermina was a great host, the room was clean and all information was complete and accurate. She bought a cake for my 5 years old daughter's birthday that surprised her a lot!! Also lots of shopping centers are nearby. The T-line is really close, and everything in the house just looked like the pictures. I recommend this place to you. Thank you a lot Hermina...
This is a good place to stay. And it's quiet and clean room. Clean restroom. The place is very close to subway station so that you can go to any places in Boston very quickly.
The house was really beautiful and my room was quite spacious, with everything I could have needed, and the possibility to use the kitchen for breakfast was definitely a plus. Hermina was really great - she sent me detailed directions on howe to get there and as soon as I arrived she welcomed me, helped me with my stuff, and we enjoyed a cup of tea and a lovely chat together, joined by one of the other guests as well. She gave me pointers on what to see during my stay in Boston and always had a kind word when we saw each other, and on my last day she even drove me to the bus station on her way to the shops. If I ever go to Boston again I'm definitely booking with her.
INsgesamt sehr schöne Unterkunft und ein geräumiges Zimmer, dass nicht nur mit dem Nötigsten ausgestattet ist. Die Küche kann man tatsächlich sinnvoll nutzen, falls man das möchte, da Dinge wie Öl oder Gewürze, die man nicht unbedingt für einmal Kochen kaufen möchte, vorhanden sind. Wärmstens weiterzuempfehlen.

About the Host, Hermina
Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in oldest neighborhoods in Boston (Dorchester). The house is beautiful, big, clean and colors are my addition to its charm. I love colors you can see it in the pictures.
I love the idea of B&B and now I have chance to host people from the world in my own house. Traveling is part of my life and staying with family opens chance to meet local people.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
