“Great Back Bay Location-quiet neighborhood, centrally located.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Location, location, location. We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. This particular unit was a three bedroom floor-through unit, so it was very roomy and comfortable. It is a older brownstone, so do be prepared to climb some stairs. We were expecting that, and felt it added to the charm of staying in a Brownstone. The neighborhood was beautiful to walk through with brick paved sidewalks, and gas lamps for street lights. Newbury St., Boylston St., the Charles River, Commonwealth Ave., Boston Common and Public Gardens all are within walking distance/blocks of the building. We walked every where, and only called on a taxi twice during our 5-day stay. Short Term Rentals Boston was very easy to work with, and responded promptly to all our questions prior to our trip. The reservation/check in process was very easy. We especially liked not paying a security deposit that we would have to wait to have refunded to us. A nominal renters insurance fee was collected instead. A few negatives to mention for us would be the need for air conditioners in the bedrooms, more towels in the bathroom, and some sort of informational binder in the rental with pertinent information such as taxi numbers, and tour information for example. We were not able to locate one in our unit. With that said, we did enjoy our stay, and would definitely stay here again at this same time of year.

HI Cynthia -

Thank you for the review and feedback on the unit. Not having enough towels and there not being a binder in the unit is unacceptable. I wish I would have know and we could have dispatched management and cleaning to correct these two things immediately,. Being that its Fall now the AC's in the bedroom won't serve a purpose but we'll definitely consider that for next year. We typically rely on the ceiling fans to cool the bedrooms in the warm weather and thus far they have done a nice job meeting guests expectations. Thank you again for the review and we hope you'll keep us in mind for your next trip to Boston!

HI Mirela,

I'm sorry to hear about your displeasure. Our listing for this unit clearly states that it is 2 flights of stairs up from the front door and that we do not have an elevator in the building. Boston has many old building, which weren't designed to accommodate an elevator. It's part of the charm and the inconvenience of these historic row houses. I wish we could have done a better job of re-iterating the limitations of our great building.
