The neighborhood was wonderful. The property was clean and well kept. The bed was very comfortable. The only drawbacks were the room was very small - would be great for a single traveler.

Overall, lovely property
The room was beautiful and it was truly like living on the lovely street. The ceiling of glass and the balcony were wonderful! I was not pleased with the parking. It was quite a hike with 2 bags of luggage up busy deteriorating sidewalks. It was quite a big expense we didn’t plan on. It was also hard for me to personally check in for our room. There are 4 people in my household that occasionally change the apple password. Luckily, my friend could get set up.

It took 45 minutes to get our code to get in building. Was ridiculous. They don’t clean during stay that is so expensive already and the rooms are behind small and poorly designed

The building has such great character in a beautiful neighborhood. The private patio was a nice bonus. The room and building were very clean and any additional items needed were readily available. We easily took the T from the airport and were able to walk to every place we wanted to visit. We highly recommend it.

The building was beautiful and felt safe and secure. The beds were comfortable, the room was very clean. Tons of dining and shopping just steps away from the property. We really enjoyed our stay.

I stayed in one of the smaller rooms at the Sonder 284 Back Bay. It was spotless with a beautiful, just-big-enough marble bathroom (also spotless) and a kitchenette (microwave, frig, coffee-maker, and tea kettle). The bed was very comfortable with nice linens and comfy pillows. The check-in/-out processes were seamless. It's on a quiet street lined with beautiful old brownstones and a tree-lined park. I had only one challenge. The suggested parking structures are inconveniently far from the property when walking with luggage. There was no evident luggage drop-off area. I was traveling solo. It wouldn't be an issue with 2 adult travelers. I highly recommend this property.
