We stayed in 4F for three nights in September and found the place to be clean, quiet, well maintained and with a full kitchen. The kids slept on the sofa bed and were comfortable.
The best thing is the location. It's so close to the Public Garden that you could almost call it your own backyard. It's also very close to the Charles River (good playground and good place for a run), Newbury Street and the Arlington T station. the free wifi was also appreciated.
If there was to be some criticism, it would be that you can't open the windows to let in fresh air, and the only ventilation in the apartment comes from a small air conditioner that struggles from time to time. Also, the information pack was missing some pages (including that about the closest supermarket). This was not a major issue, as a quick Google check using the free wifi had us on our way.
We are already looking forward to our next trip to Boston.
