I thought this was a great place. Really comfortable and convenient and clean, and Hermina was very kind and accommodating. I would definitely recommend it.
Hermita was a great host. She managed to accomodate me at last minute. her house is in safe neighbourhood. Rooms are quite nice and clean. All the amenities are provided as described. I would love to go back.
Every thing was perfect, great place, neighborhood and hostess was very accommodating. Easy public transit and 5 minutes off the highway. great for 1-2 people
The room was very clean and the house is very near to the subway as it takes a short 5min walk :) glad that we could find this place at the very last minute and thank you for the stay!
Overall the experience was good. Hermina was responsive and friendly. But the area was noisy, and air conditioning was not available.
Hermina was very easy to communicate with and was always quick to respond to my messages. My husband and I arrived from the airport in the evening and I was worried about not having an exact arrival time for Hermina as it was my first time flying into Boston Logan and taking public trans. However, Hermina was very kind and let us know that whenever we got in was fine. I've found that not all Airbnb hosts are that flexible with arrival time!
She left us detailed directions on how to get to the house from the airport so transportation there was much easier than I think it could have otherwise been! The house is about a five minute walk from the T station. The walk from the T station was a bit sketchy, so I wouldn't arrive late at night as a single female or cart around a ton of luggage. I was with my husband, though, so I was fine.
The house is beautiful and looks like the photos that Hermina has displayed. I loved walking into a Victorian home! You can tell she takes a lot of pride in her place and makes it nice for travelers. My room was already pretty cool when I arrived, which was great on a hot and humid summer day! I appreciated the desk, closet, and dressers to unpack in. I used the shower to clean up after a full day of travel. The water pressure was good. It is a shared bathroom between I think two or three rooms, so be aware that you may need to be flexible. There are some stores just a few minutes from the hosue, which is convenient. Unfortunately, we didn't end up staying the night because my sister-in-law's plans changed and she was able to have me stay at her house. Hermina was understanding, and, even though we didn't meet in person, I know she is kind and wants her guests to have the best experience possible.

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.
