“Not your best bet in Boston”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012 for a stay in May 2012
people found this review helpful

We stayed here for 5 nights during Boston University's graduation. Based on the rental description we didn't rent a car, believing we could jump on a bus or the T. We discovered it would have taken over an hour to get to BU with many station changes. Ended up spending quite a bit on taxis. Street noise was pretty unrelenting with ambulances, police sirens, trucks and motorcycles at all hours.

Property is on 4th floor with no elevator - we managed just fine but could be a challenge for guests who aren't physically fit.

Property dies not have two queen beds - there's one queen and one full size. There's a fold out floor mat and a strange sofa that I guess are the other sleeping set ups. The shower stall is very tight and we are thin people.

There is a tiny washer and dryer which came in handy and laundry soap was provided. The units shook the entire condo during use.

Things that were really missed was a secondary mirror (medicine cabinet is only miror on premises), some knives other than the dinner knives or 2 steak knives. There was no toilet paper or paper towels on site until we complained - another guest told me they never had any during their entire stay.
