NOT READY FOR PRIME-TIME

  • 3 of 5
You will want to stay here for the location - make no mistake. It's a quick walk to Kenmore Square, BU, Fenway, and the subway (MBTA). Dunkin Donuts and a Whole Foods two minutes walk up towards Brookline. But that's about it.

Flatbook Boston is not ready for prime-time and needs work. This apartment is a student sublet, in a student-heavy area, and is furnished and noisy as such.

The problems we encountered weren't enough to spoil the stay, but enough that I felt compelled to write about them and will not stay at another Flatbook Boston location.

1) Parking. We used to live in Boston, so we know that free, off-street parking is a huge bonus. When I inquired about availability of parking with this rental, I was assured that a parking space was available. This was huge and a key factor in deciding to stay at this property as I was not interested in places without parking.

When I asked again one week before our date, I was told by the local manager that no parking was available but there was a 'cheap' $20/night parking garage nearby. I contacted the corporate office and they were willing to cover the cost of my parking. When we got there, the nearest parking area was the Landmark, which is $28/18 hours and $40 during Red Sox games. Guess who was playing the next two nights?

In the end, I only had to pay for one night which was reimbursed, but we spent the better part of our first day in Boston stalking free parking spaces. Not fun.

2) Apartment condition/listing. Microwave listed - none available. Duvet on one of the beds had what looked like dried blood stains on it. Obviously not cleaned before we arrived. No top sheets for the beds. No extra linen. We had to call the local manager who was able to provide two extra sheets and a comforter. But really, extra sheets on hand is a no-brainer in a rental. They refunded our cleaning fee.

3) Hidden charge. No where on the Homeaway website is there mention of a security deposit. When we arrived at the apartment, the manager sprung that on us and he swiped our credit card for the $300 deposit. It was only after prompting a day later after checking out that the deposit we returned.

The company does not quite have it together enough that I would rent from them again. They were very responsive with my concerns and did refund/reimburse me for parking and cleaning, but I would rather paid full price and not have to deal with problems. At $228 USD/night there needs to be significant improvement.
