This property is listed thru a realtor working for the property management company. This picture shown, is not necessarily the apt you will get, as was the case with my rental. No fireplace, not as much space. I was 6R sixth floor but there is a small elevator so no problem and the apt was was cute. Plenty of towels and the bed is ok; if you're picky, 6R is not the bed for you.
Here's the negative and the positive:
The negative: strong smell of onions hung over the apt and lamp was broken; after s call quickly solved, not s big deal. But here's the bad:The second I arrived a noticed was handed out that the next day the water would be off from 10 am till at least 2 pm. For my purposes the next day, this sucked and was a real issue. It wasn't an emergency situation, but planned. To find s new place was going to be s drag. I asked the managment company for 1/2 days rate as compensation. They didn't see the problem, were condescending, unfriendly and refused.
Here's the good news: AirBNB totally has your back. They understood completely, quickly agreed and granted the refund.
The place and location are terrific. If any issue were to arrive, the realtor, posting the property and the property manager are most unpleasant; a first in my AirBnb experience. AirBNB is still awesome
Everything was as described, spacious, clean, well lit and in an incredible location. Would definitely recommend
This place was fantastic! I was traveling alone for work and in Boston for a week, and it was so nice to have a comfy apartment to come home to instead of a sterile hotel room. The place has so much character and amazing high ceilings - the photos really don't do the place justice. The location was perfect!
This location cannot be beat... it was exactly where I wanted to stay. . Walking distance to my favorite part of Boston...Boston Commons, swan boats, duck tours. This was my mother's first visit to Boston and it was the most convenient location for touring . It is a beautiful part of town. The building felt very safe.
Great location close to so many wonderful Boston attractions. The only negative was a party on the last (website hidden) the above apartment.
We liked the apartment very much: warm, clean, nicely decorated and well-situated.
We would rent it again any time.
Pros - Beautiful location, right next to Public Garden and Back Bay shopping. 100 times better than staying in the Copley Sq area. Very quaint, charming and I felt like I was "at home". Easy walking distance to pastry shops and restaurants in Beacon Hill, numerous T stops nearby and right in the heart of it all. Easy check-in/out. Comfortable bed and blankets, clean modern bathroom, spacious 1 bedroom apartment. Great views of the Prudential Center. The reviewer who said there was no elevator was wrong - there is a fast and easy elevator, which I highly recommend using. Otherwise it is a very steep, exhausting climb up 6 flights of narrow stairs. I fell down them once and we stopped using them.
Cons - extremely noisy building. Don't get this place if you are intending a romantic or quiet restful vacation. The first night we had toddlers above us banging on things til 11 pm, and the second night we had 12 college kids playing "quarters" and smoking cigarettes until 2 am. We had to finally go up there and ask them to pipe down. Street noise wasn't a problem, it was simply disrespectful neighbors. Quiet hours and a mechanism to direct nighttime complaints would solve this problem easily.
I would probably stay here again, but my husband said he probably wouldn't. If the price were lowered by $50 that would be a little more palatable.
We appreciate the feedback.
However, each tenant is provide a "real time" phone number to solve issues with their rental property ( be it noise or structural issues).
Rachel did not advise us of a problem until she departed. That is TOO LATE for us to solve the problem.
We ask all AirBNB guests to utilize the emergency/property management phrone numbers contained in their move-in instructions TO Immediately Solve their problems.
Telling us after the fact is informative, but not actionable --in real time.
