First the neighborhood and location are excellent, perfectly located so couldn't ask for better. The process with Seamless Transition was seamless. Building is older but well kept, elevator and stairs are a bit narrow but very manageable. Only issue was I was a bit unsure where to take garbage to dispose of there is no immediate place in building (ended up walking through basement out back door to place in rubbish bin in back. Overall I would recommend this location and service.
It was a lovely apt and very clean. Easy access and clear instructions. I was very pleased to stay in this unit.
Muy lindo zona buena
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!
