My boyfriend and I just returned from an extended stay here and had a fabulous experience. We really had no complaints. The location was good. The subway station was about a 5 minutes walk away. From here, you can access all the main attractions. I also ran the Southwest Corridor route into downtown-which was paved for and very safe. If you enjoy walking, you could even walk into town on a nice day. I would estimate this would take about 45 minutes or so. Checking in and out was a breeze. I really appreciated that we were able to pay through Paypal.
The photos posted were very accurate. I usually like to post my own, but this would be quite redundant in this case. We quite enjoyed utilizing the kitchen, which helped us save some money on food costs during this trip. Note there is no washer/dryer in this unit. However, there is an inexpensive laundromat on Tremont (Sunny Laundromat) just a short walk away.
My only advice is to use your common sense if you have to venture into the Mission Hill area, which is just to the left as you exit the subway (Fort Hill Inn is towards the right). This area did seem a little sketchy at night. But overall, we felt pretty safe in our travels and didn't encounter any issues.
