A good apartment in a great location.....we walked everywhere and it was goof to get back and relax....apartment well equipped and suited our needs perfectly.
Great location for all we wanted to do in our very first trip to Boston! Comfortable bed, nice shower, clean and cozy! Snacks and bottled water on the counter when we arrived. Ice cube maker did not work on fridge but they were filled ice trays in the freezer, so no problem there! We used the coin laundry in the basement of the building as we were extending our stay with Bus tour of the New England states. Would absolutely stay here again! Loved Boston!!
We called it home.
The location was so perfect!! It was quiet and cozy. We would stay here again.
Great location! Comfortable apartment. Slept well.
Just a short walk to Boston Common, the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall, the subway, and a lot of good cafes and restaurants.
If you're familiar with Boston you may skip the rest of this review.
If you haven't visited Boston before, I feel obligated to warn you: Do NOT drive in Boston. Park your car in New Haven, CT and take the Amtrak. The layout of the streets in Boston will overwhelm you and the signage will only add to the confusion. I have a theory about how this came to be: During the first two centuries of British colonization in America, the colonists built up a really easy to use road system with excellent signage. Travel and commerce were fast and efficient. During the run-up to the revolutionary war, the colonial leaders decided that they needed to do something to impede British troops. So they bulldozed the existing road system and built a new one designed to make navigation as difficult as possible. Up and down the Atlantic seaboard streets and roads are difficult to use. Boston stands out! The city fathers tapped the best minds in the engineering departments of Harvard and MIT to devise a street system that is virtually impossible to find your way in. And then they had the best MIT cryptographers do the signage. This may also explain what happened to the Roanoke colony. They lived peacefully on their little island, trading very occasionally with mainlanders, for a long time. One autumn they came to the mainland to sell some of their fall harvest and immediately got lost on the new, unfamiliar road system. They may still be out there somewhere, but without Google Maps to help they are hopelessly lost.
Also, you should be aware that some of the sidewalks in the Beacon Hill neighborhood date from the Roman occupation. Two millenia of frost heave have made them challenging.
Fun fact: After returning to Philadelphia from a trip to Boston, Benjamin Franklin coined the word "undulate" (from the latin "undula" - protuberances that break ankles) to describe these very pathways.
Beacon Hill Property
The location is close to public transportation, supermarket, pharmacy and Boston common. The apartment was clean and had all the amenities needed. The location is very peaceful. Communication with the owner was great.
Wonderful, roomy appartment near the city center. Less than 10 minutes walk from subway-station. Restaurants and shops nearby. Well organized and a lovely place to stay to discover the city of Boston. If we planned to visit the city once more, we would definitely try to get this appartment once again.
