“A few concerns, but overall a great place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

After a few concerns were addressed the stay was very nice. The TV and cable box had been disconnected and we had to reconnect it ourselves. A call placed to the management company was answered late at night but no return call was made. The sofabed in the living room was broken, so a couple needed to sleep on the matress on the floor the first night but management brought a nice airmatress for the next night. We were a group of 6 adults and 1 baby. Great to have the space for us all to stay together in a perfect Back Bay location. Walked with the stroller all around the Garden and Commons. T is very close. Also very helpful to have a nice galley kitchen to have breakfast in the condo in the morning. Fully stocked with all needed plates, glasses, etc. Only two burners on the stove worked but that was enough to make a nice breakfast. Very easy to find temporary parking on Beacon St to unload our belonings. Parking over the weekend under the Common was cheap for Boston. A very nice place with a lot of character. Would stay again.

“Excellent neighborhood. Close to river and Boston Common and handy for everything”

This apartment provided everything we needed for an excellent stay in Boston. We were two adults and two teenagers and one 12 year old. We could only request this apartment with two bathrooms but luckily we got it! Without two bathrooms it would have been difficult. Otherwise we had no problem regarding where to sleep. This apartment looks onto the back, so it was very quiet also. The kitchen was perfect. We would not have wanted to cook a large meal in there but for salads etc. it was excellent. There is even a small dishwasher. Washer and dryer is for use by the whole apartment block but we had no problem getting our laundry done. Air conditioning. The apartment is small (it is Boston). So don't expect anything large. One thing I would say is that the second bedroom is VERY small and the bed only accommodates a shorter person! My 12 year old slept there and it was perfect. The main bedroom is still small but absolutely fine for two adults. One teenager slept on the pull out sofabed, which apparently wasn't the most comfortable.. and my other teenager slept on the large sofa with no issue. He should have had a blow up bed to sleep on but there was a large puncture in it. We loved how close we were to the river and the dome for concerts etc. we could literally walk everywhere if we wanted to. Only a short walk to T stop. Boston Common is beautiful and literally at the end of the road. The road the apartment is on is extremely nice. A very safe, wonderful neighborhood. I would not stay in any other neighborhood now I have visited Boston. I would definitely book this apartment again. Short walk to lovely restaurants on Newbury Street and lovely shops also. Prudential Center Shopping Mall an easy walk also. Two Whole Foods about 1 1/2 miles in either direction. We usually went there on the way home from somewhere. A wonderful vacation. Thank you.
