5/5 Excellent

Great apartment and great neighbourhood.
This is a very nice apartment in a safe and diverse neighborhood, conveniently located near a subway stop. The apartment was clean and cozy and check-in was a breeze. It is quite small and there is no "kitchen" per se so cooking a full meal is not possible. But there is a good Somali restaurant on the way to the subway stop, and a small but good mini-market on a side street (one block past the subway stop) with everything you need to stock the mini-fridge for breakfast. On-street parking is a bit tricky because of restrictions one morning per week for street cleaning, but the owner was helpful and accommodating (and replied instantly by text when I asked about it) . I would stay here again.

4/5 Good

Overall, a pleasant stay
This was our first visit to Boston, and we enjoyed our stay at this property. As noted in previous reviews, it is on the edge of a somewhat sketchy part of town, and people not used to a big city might not appreciate the diversity. That said, the location is fairly central to all, and the T is within easy walking distance. We ended up using Lyft more than the T. Lyft is in my opinion the way to go in this city (sorry carbon footprint), but my wife liked the T for the experience. Back to the apartment. It was a bit small, but cozy, and the windows were surprisingly noise insulated for what looked like older single-pane. AC worked well, bathroom and shower were ok. This place is not good for anybody with any kind of mobility problems for two reasons: getting in and out of the shower, and the stairs to the third floor. No problem for us though. The decor was very eclectic, and we appreciated it. Overall, a pleasant stay, and as advertised, as a good hotel alternative.
