Brahma's such a cool host, always helpful and available, he really made the effort to make us feel welcome. Plus, he has a lot of tips for those who want to eat something other than american fast food ;-)
The flat's fantastic and it has everything you need. The neighbourhood is cool too, lots of chilled Latinos willing to speak Spanish.
You'd be stupid not to come here!

For French travelers :
Appartement très agréable, propre, fonctionnel.
Brahma est un hôte très sympa et disponible, il est de bons conseils ! Il nous a orienté vers un très joli parc près de la maison avec une vue imprenable sur Boston. Nous étions 4 et sommes resté 3 nuits, tout s'est très bien passé.
Le quartier est calme, il faut compter 10 min de marche pour aller au métro et 10 min de métro pour se rendre en centre-ville
Le plus: le balcon
Le bémol (s'il faut en trouver un...): la pression de la douche ;)
Sachez également que si l'annonce indique une capacité de 4 personnes, il y a un canapé lit donc vous pouvez tenir à 6 (prévenez bien sûr l'hôte au préalable!)
Brahma was a great host overall , answering all our questions and making sure we knew where things were in the apartment & the East Boston neighborhood where the apartment is located. He has a lot of knowledge about Boston history & landmarks if you are interested in this. Brahma was called out of town unexpectedly but checked us in over the phone and "upgraded" us to LOTUS ( which is on the 2nd floor of the 3 story building ) & is described as a" Luxury Apartment." The location of the rental was perfect for us but this isn't the ideal neighborhood for most travelers. It is a working class & lower income area with lot's of trash littering the sidewalks & streets. A supermarket is a 20 minute walk but there are small corner Mom & Pop Latino markets every few blocks. The main plus is the close location to Logan airport & T station making getting from & to the airport a breeze. The city provides a free shuttle to the airport @ the station! Also a great Mexican Restaurant Angela's which serves a tasty breakfast & offers fresh squeezed OJ is just a few steps away. LOTUS, the "Luxury Apartment" as it is described, is comfortable overall but truly lacked the luxury part. The bed was comfy and but no fancy high thread count bedding, furniture was mismatched and old and the dining room table was a folding picinic table with a plastic red checkered tablecloth covering it. We had a nice amount of space to cook & relax in but the description of the apartment should be changed to "eclectic style". The kitchen has very high counter tops so being a shorter person is a problem here although there is a step stool provided. Kitchen lacked a few things like a good knife for chopping veggies( only 1 serrated knife). Bathroom has a combo tub w/ jets & shower, hot water was not a problem but if you like a high pressure shower it's not going to happen( old plumbing /building). Nice towels were provided but they were brand new w/ tags still on them so I had to wash them before I could use them ($7 for wash & dry). The apartment is housed in a row-house which looks pretty rough from the entrance as it is in need of some paint & repairs but the security system to enter the house is a comforting detail for out of town travelers. There is free street parking in front or down the block if you drive or rent a car. The apartment was fairly clean ( not clean to my personal standards though) quiet and felt safe so I would recommend it as a place to land if you are in Boston for a day or more. I do think it should be priced slightly under the price we paid but Boston is not a place where you will find cheap rentals, temporarily or long...
Brahma with a smile was very welcoming and his home has a feel good charm and warmth to it. My friends got there ahead of me and I found them well settled in. The apartment was clean, secure and engaging. I loved the views just off the balcony.
He gave us recommendations on places to eat, sight-see. The apartment is near the train station (10 minute walk), a couple of restaurants. Overall i would definitely come stay again.
as my BF said: "If i'm going back to Boston 100% I am staying here again". First, the apartment is wonderful! The rooms are very comfortable and clean, you have everything you need in the house, and the neighborhood is very nice and quite. The subway is 10 minutes walk and get to downtown pretty easily, and a taxi was 20$ max. Second, Brahma was a superb host! We got stuck in traffic and arrived horribly late and he still came to welcome us and explain every detail about the house. He checked on us every day and made sure we are comfortable, and that we find everything we need (including even where to go), and he was very welcoming and extremely nice. The communication with him was fast and clear and I highly recommend to have him as a host!
We will defiantly be back on our next trip to Boston.
Notre hote Brahma est d'une grande qualité, l'appartement est irréprochable.
Le moindre petit soucis a trouvé une solution rapide, le séjour était très agréable.
Brahma is the perfect host you can imagine. Very accommodating, even when last minute changes are considered!
Excellent experience in Skyrama for our first two weeks in Boston. Brahma is a very nice host and maintain the apartment very well. This is our first time to make reservation of home-stay through Airbnb and how lucky we are !
Brahma was a superb host, very courteous. Had no problem with us arriving late, showed us around the next morning. He was responsive to emails and very friendly. The room, Lotus, was comfortable, easy, and had its own style.we would definitely stay again.
Brahma was a gracious host and really made every effort to ensure that we had a great stay. His place is full of character and wonderful paintings. The view from the patio is amazing - especially on a nice day.
