Delightful apartment in the heart of Boston
Submitted: January 17, 2013
Stayed: July 2012
Our family of three (husband, 14-year old son and myself) absolutely loved this apartment in the heart of Boston. We had read previous reviews of the generosity and helpfulness of the manager, Varouj, and he definitely lived up to his billing. He picked us up at the train station, waiting by the curb when we arrived. He drove us directly to the apartment and showed us all around. He had stocked the entire refrigerator and cupboards with food and drinks. Fruit bowls and gorgeous fresh flowers were in the living room. Varouj spent time with us explaining exactly where we were and where we might want to go. The apartment itself had fantastic views out of the window and we were able to watch the fireworks from our balcony. The bedroom was very comfortable, with lots of room to hang clothes. At one point we asked whether he had a toaster. He didn't, but showed up with one for us the following day. There was a full size grocery store on the first first floor of the building. Everything seemed so easy. A mall was just across the street, which came in handy when we were looking for various things that we needed. There were a couple of great places to eat, Atlantic Seafoods, Legal Seafoods and plenty of Subways for our son. We were able to attend the Boston Red Sox vs. Yankees game in July, which was fantastic. We toured the Betsy Ross House, the Paul Revere House, and went all over the Freedom Trail. Quincy Market was great fun, and always attracted a crowd of someone dancing, playing music, or juggling. We went to MIT, where we listened to a young scientist explain how DNA works in very understandable way. Because of the humid weather at the time, we found ourselves in the magnificent (and cool, temperature wise) Boston Library. My husband and I were able to walk around town by ourselves, leaving our 14 year old son in the library borrowing my husband's laptop. Don't miss the interesting sculptures in the courtyard, which have some interesting stories about them. We explored the Kennedy memorial library, which was exceptional. I would have to say, however, that Varouj was the one who really set the overall tone for our stay. I don't think we have ever been so well taken care of.
