This property is right in the heart of the North End. Everything you could want and need is within walking distance, including amazing historical sights. The Italian food in the area is excellent. It is sandwiched right between the two main streets of the North End and only a five-minute walk to a T stop.
The ambiance was also excellent if you want a true feel for living in the North End. It was clean and very well-maintained. It was small, but not too small. Five of us stayed there (3 adults, 1 teen, and 1 10-year-old). The sleeping arrangements were comfortable, and there was enough space for us to sit and hang around a little too.
Previous reviewers have mentioned the steps. Yes, there are a lot of them, and they are narrow. But if you are in decent physical shape, they should not be a problem. We saw them as an opportunity to work off the numerous cannolis we consumed. Ha!
Overall, we loved experiencing the North End more as a local than a tourist staying in a hotel.
