The listing was accurate re: location, layout, amenities, & pictures. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner provided good customer service. I would definitely recommend this property & I would gladly stay here again myself.
I was looking for somewhere with a kitchen so I could stay on budget during my trip & not eat out 3 meals per day. This was slightly cheaper than a hotel. I am a 30-year old female, travelling alone, and I felt safe and comfortable in this property and in this neighbourhood at all times.
It was a 10-15 minute walk to get to the Prudential Centre and Copley Square which is just east of there. I spent 2 of the days using the Old Town Trolley for touring around the city. I was able to walk to Stop 9 for the Trolley in about 10 minutes from the apartment. I also went to 2 Red Sox games at Fenway Park which I also walked to. Fenway was about a 30min walk. I walked back by myself after both the games which were at night and I felt completely safe the entire time. I didn’t take one cab during my trip, luckily the weather cooperated. I walked everywhere. I recommend using the Trolley Tour map to get around this city, even when not using the trolley. It was very helpful.
A tip on transportation from the Airport: The host suggested I could take the Silver Line Bus for a few dollars that would take me to a couple blocks from the property. Outside the terminal I got on the silver line bus but it didn’t take me to where the host suggested. This bus was free, however. The route ended at the South Station. I used the GPS on my phone to walk to the property which took about an hour from the South Station.
Later I saw a sign at the SW corner of Boylston and Dartmouth that said Back Bay Logan Express $5. This shuttle is direct to the airport (all terminals) and runs 7 days a week every 20 minutes! I took this option when it was time to go back to the airport. In future trips I will be looking for this when I arrive in Boston. For $5 it will take me to Copley Square and then a 10 minute walk to the property from there.
One suggestion for the hosts would be to leave info/directions in the apartment as to where the closest grocery stores are located in the area. I got groceries at the Star Market near the Prudential Centre, but it would have been easier to get the groceries from somewhere closer.
I have no complaints about the accommodations and would happily return.
