“Good location and very comfortable apartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The apartment is very comfortable and was fine for four of us. The kitchen is good for breakfast and/or lunch, but it would be difficult to do 'heavy' cooking, as there is no counter space. It suited our needs just fine. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bathroom is extremely tiny. It worked fine for our needs, could be a problem for some. I am 5'3 and I still bumped into walls. We are pretty easy-going, so we were OK with it. I highly recommend Picco on Tremont St. nearby. Their cinnamon (homemade) ice cream is perhaps the best I've ever had and the pesto pasta was also delicious. If you walk to the grocery store, I would take a left on Tremont and then take the nice tree lined stree with walk up apartments (first right from Tremont as you walk north). Once Dartmouth crosses Tremont (Dartmouth is around the corner from the apartment), it quickly seems to change and it appeared that we were walking through the projects of Boston. We were really taken by surprise and definitely would have avoided this street. Once we were at the grocery store, it seemed just fine. We did have some difficulty finding the apartment, as we had driven to Boston. Unless you are familiar with the area, it is extremely dificult to exit the highway at the right place, as it comes up very suddenly and without good signage. The directions need to be much clearer. Since we missed the exit, we got totally lost on the way and it took us quite a bit of extra time and a lot of extra stress to get there!

Liked best: staying in an apartment with an easy walk to the T
Liked least: not knowing about the 'sketchy' area nearby - although the immediate area seemed fine

We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay but we’re sorry you got lost on your way here! We try our best to provide clear directions but Boston roads are notorious for being confusing and poorly signed. We’ll take another look at our driving directions to see if there are any details we can clarify. The apartment is located in the highly desirable neighborhood of the South End. Tremont Street, which is often referred to as “Restaurant Row,” is home to many top-notch restaurants and trendy shops. Boston, like any city, has a diverse range of neighborhoods within a walkable distance of almost any location in the city.

“Absolute joy as expected in photos and from google street view”

people found this review helpful

The room we had was facing the street on half a level up from the street up about 10 steps and the manager Julia was delightful. I rang her from the airport at 9pm and said said we were just about to step in a taxi. She was waiting for us and we stayed 5 nights. Clean tidy reasonable room for 2 great location no night noise a school across the othe side of montgomery street but school buses are the next street. Large fridge no dishwasher all you need for a few days. Food shops one block away in two directions. Wifi is free.
