It is very easy to describe my feelings. Hermina is a courteous and helpful hostess. The room are spacious and in the kitchen I could work like in my own apartment.
But I have to mention her commitment on my departure day as there were a problem with my rental car. It was towed. She supported me and did many telephone calls. Without her support, it would have been difficult for me to get the car back right in time, because I was on the way to the airport.
Once again many thanks to her support, it is certainly not self-evident.
Best regards, Holger
This is a great deal and comfortable place to stay. Hermina is a wonderful host and was very responsive on short notice. This home is close to a Red Line train station- only a few blocks away, which made it convenient and easy to get around.
I will be back next time I'm in Boston.
This is the second time I have stayed with Hermina. Her home is tidy and accomodating, and she handles everything kindly and professionally. The place is in excellent condition, less than five minutes walk from a metro station and therefore quite easily accessible from downtown Boston.
It's nice atmosphere. Thank you!
Fue muy sencillo encontrar la casa con las indicaciones de Herminia, está muy cerca del metro y llegar al centro de la ciudad es rápido. Donna, lo mejor de la estancia! es muy amable y nos resolvió todas las dudas. La habitación es igual que en las imágenes, amplia y limpia. El único problema es que se escuchan bastante los ruidos de los demás inquilinos de la casa.
Se puede usar la cocina y por la mañana Donna nos invitó a desayunar con café, fruta fresca y pan. Muy recomendable para quedarse en Boston!
The house is very nice, big and spacious so I felt good there. Had some good conversation with Hermina. The neighborhood is nothing special maybe but the train stop is close by and quick access to the city.
My host Hermina, met me at the door. She showed me where to park and parking was easily available.
I stayed in an area separate from the main house, right around the side. This was to allow me to bring my bike into the house. This space was clean and neat, though not Victorian. My bedroom was welcoming and the bed comfortable. I had a good nights sleep. The bathroom, shared was clean and convenient. There was a very lively couple there who shared that floor with me. All good.

Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston last 15 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. I love traveling and the experience of meeting locals and one way of doing it, is where do you stay.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
