WHAT a nasty suprise this morning. I got up at 4:45 to get on the road to work, leaving my key behind on the table, and my car was GONE. I called the towing company on the sign, and they did not have my car, but sent me to another towing company who did . I had to haul my luggage around the block, pay $9 for a cab, and $131 to the towing company to get my car out of seizure. I was late to work, and lost 4 hours pay.
The room was clean, but not at all private. The entry was through my room. The internet did not work at all. It connected but there was no data transfer. The room lacked a chair. I sat on the bed to eat and to read.
The host is very friendly. and location is convenient, close to the T-line. There are many supermarkets around, where we bought very cheap lobster. The only question is there is no pans in the kitchen. We had to find other way to cook the lobster.
Was simple. I came during the day, got my key. Explored the city and came back at night to sleep. Bed was less than ideal, but I slept just fine. Stayed two nights, no complaints. Clean.
We were five people looking for a relatively cheap room with a good connection to boston downtown and that is exactly what we got. We had a big room (although not private, since other people had to pass through it to access the front door), there were two shared bathrooms and a shared kitchen. The food in the area was very good and cheap (the super 88 market food court). Parking is a bit difficult and we had to find a garage to leave our car over the weekend. Everyone was really nice and helpful. It is close to green line that gets you downtown.
Great experience! Nice apartment and a comfy room. Thank you Anil!
Anil was a great host and I really enjoyed the time there. Everything was super clean. You have your own room, your own table and your own private sphere, but it is also possible to sit down for a nice talk with the hosts at home.
So I want to thank Anil for my great time in their room.
The apartment and the room were clean. The photos are accurate. The hosts are polite. The room had a nice desk and chair, the closet was empty and had hangers if I wanted to use them, and there were plenty of electrical outlets. Noise levels are fine and did not affect my sleeping. The location is excellent for being close to the T and within walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, and shops.
Parking at night is okay, but you have to wake up early to move your car and during the day you're limited to two-hour stints unless you want to risk getting ticketed or towed; I wouldn't normally rent a car if I were staying in Boston but I was coming from a week in Maine and hadn't returned my rental car yet.
The bed sheet was dingy and worn and I got the distinct feeling that it was not clean. There was only a fitted sheet on the mattress and no flat sheet between my body and the scratchy comforter, which I also don't think had been washed recently. And if these things were clean, it's time to replace them.
When I asked for a towel the hosts were surprised and said I'd have to provide my own, but one of the roommates offered to let me use his towels, which were hanging in the bathroom and looked used. (It's a kind gesture, but sharing towels is unhygienic and not recommended.) I could understand expecting a student who was moving in for a semester to provide his own towel and sheets, but it seems unreasonable to me to expect a traveler staying for one night to provide his own towel without stating the requirement in advance.
I was looking for a place to stay close to BU and the location was great. The room was fine, the noise level inside the apartment made sleeping difficult (I was there on a Monday night too). Anil told me he'd be out of town, but someone would be there when I arrived. After 10 minutes of ringing the bell, someone came to the door and let me in. The room was fine - twin bed and desk. Very sparse, but all you need. There were 4 guys there standing in the kitchen when I arrived (not sure where they all were when I had been ringing the bell). You can hear everything in the apartment, people walking down the hallway and closing doors. I'm a light sleeper, so it made it difficult to fall asleep. I was awoken at 2:15am to what sounded like all 4 roommates cooking in the kitchen complete with banging of pans, loud talking and music playing. I could understand if this was a weekend night, but it was a Monday night. I felt uncomfortable going out and asking them to quiet down. Finally around 3:15am the apartment was quiet and I fell asleep. It wasn't a good experience. If you want to be near BU, the location is good, the room is fine, but the noise level from the other 4 roommates in the apartment made it difficult to sleep unless you are a very sound sleeper. Hopefully, with this review the roommates will be more aware of their noise level when they have other guests staying in the room in the future. But I will not stay here again.
Anil and his housemates are very friendly and kind hosts. They even shared delicious meals that they cook. The unit is clean and very comfortable for someone looking to not to spend a bomb for a hotel room. My stay was very comfortable overall, and will highly recommend to anyone.
Anil was excellent tenant!! We will gladly host such nice, charming and respectful tenant again. Thank you!!
I have met with Anil for one year and he is a very friendly. I went to their house multiple times. Anil and his housemates are very bona fide persons. They behave very good to all guests. The location of his house is great and close to BU, BC, Northeastern, Harvard and MIT etc. I highly recommend to everyone.
