“Just right!”
Reviewed May 9, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Five relatives, ranging in age from 25 - 85 stayed in this 2 BR/2BA condo for three nights - everything was just what we needed! The unit is very spacious so we never felt on top of one another - even the one relegated to the pull-out sofa had plenty of privacy at night. Decor is clean and updated, and not overdone. Common space was fabulous for gathering and catching up. Tiniest complaint is the number of dishes was limited and so we had to wash after any meal, but given the choice of a hotel where we would all be in different rooms with no kitchen, it didn't matter. Right in the middle of things, Less than 5 minute walk to a grocery store and convenient to many great South End restaurants, Copley Square. Elevator and Parking in building was added bonus (although I would advise you keep the car parked and walk or Uber where you need to go).

“Excellent location and home away from home with all the benefits”
Reviewed May 5, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Very nice place for an extended family to call home. Ideal that the unit had two bathrooms, a washer and dryer, and parking included. Perfect location near the main streets of Boston. Very prompt responses by host whenever we had a question. Someone parked in our parking space, but a call to the main number resolved the problem quickly. Would definitely stay here again for a trip to Boston.

“We loved this roomy and modern apartment in an excellent location!”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our four day stay in Boston was fantastic because of this extremely comfortable and clean apartment. I was there with my husband and mother-in-law and there was plenty of room for everyone - it could even accommodate more if needed. It is a great location for shopping and dining and a less than 5-minute walk to the closest T-Stop.

“Nice Apartment but confusing process and not flexible”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in this apartment for 3 nights in April. The unit itself is very nice, large and clean. However the reservation process was very confusing from the beginning. We never received any email confirmation and until I called the day before the trip, we would not have known any information or ways to get into the unit. When we were checking out, we had asked to store our luggage as we had a late night flight and that was not an option. We were suggested to take our luggage to a random hotel and ask to store it there. I found that to be very unhelpful and not something I would consider. Overall, the apartment is very expensive and not worth it when I think of the check in and check out procedures.

“Very nice little place in a great location.”
Reviewed May 1, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Nicely decorated, modern, well kept apartment/condo. Beds comfortable. Small kitchen fully equipped for a short stay. A short walk to several great shopping districts. And numerous wonderful restaurants also in a short walk. "T" station also close.
There was some street noise at night. But not terrible.
The check in process (and to some extent the check out process as well) was quite intricate and potentially confusing. Be sure to print out the instructions from Stay Alfred. Also note, no laundry machines in the condo.

“Perfect location, comfortable condo, cute, safe neighborhood.”
Reviewed April 29, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here while attending conference and took extra day to look around city. Perfect central location. The neighborhood is very safe with several good restaurants and bars anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes walking distance. Very nice green space behind condo where everyone walks dog, playground, very nice neighborhood feel. 5 minute walk to conference center, 10 minutes to Marlborough street shops, 2 minute walk to 2 different subway lines. Subways very easy to get around in. 3 stops (5 minute ride) from Boston common, 10 minutes to downtown (North side) with all of freedom trail stuff. King sized bed very comfortable. Condo well stocked with all kitchen supplies (no need to buy coffee filters) which we did and then found out several others already had, and the coffee maker has a reusable filter. 3 loads of laundry soap supplied, dryer sheets there. Have hotel sized shampoo, conditioner and soap in each bathroom. Quiet at night. Definitely will use again.

“Great for families visiting Northeastern University”
Reviewed April 26, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Photos/description of this furnished corporate unit were entirely accurate. Unit was more spacious and comfortable than expected. Quiet dead end street is just around the corner from the Prudential Center T. Underground parking is a convenient bonus. Self check in went smoothly. Was too cold to take advantage of the inviting garden courtyard seating areas.
