We had planned a long summer vacation in the US and Boston was our first stop. Based on several reviews and the price, we booked two night at Harrington House and arrived there, tired from our flights to be warmly welcomed by Joey. He showed us around and explained everything. We instantly felt very comfortable.
Harrington House is conveniently located next to a bus stop, from where you can go to the next metro station and right across from the ferry that will take you across Boston harbour right to the city centre. (Take the ferry once at least, it was really a splendid start into our day).
The breakfast was outstandingly delicious and healthy with fresh fruit and still warm muffins.
Sharing the bathroom was no problem at all, everything was clean and all necessities were provided for.
The only negative experience for us were the incoming airplanes (Winthrop lies directly in the entry path for Boston Logan Airport) which made it difficult to fall asleep. But I guess, you get used to them.
Overall, we would definitely come back should we ever visit Boston again.
