Reviewer Comments:

Cute apartment in Boston. Close to transit, which is really helpful. Close to a Dunkin Donuts, and there's a restaurant next door, though we never went there. The unit really needs updating, but for the price it is sufficient. Overall appearance is a little shabby: the couch in the living room is stained, the coffee table is shaky and pretty unstable, and some of the floor mats are frayed and/or stained (presumably from a bleach spill). Some of our towels were also stained. Furniture in pictures is completely different from what's in the apartment. That being said, it was clean and being on the second floor of the building felt pretty safe. The owner was easy to get in touch with, although when we had issues with the temperature and they said they'd come the next day, they didn't come for two days. There are no extra linens or blankets on the property, so if you're cold it can be tough. The blinds didn't always work. The street is EXTREMELY loud. EXTREMELY. I can't say this enough. If you are the type of person who needs quiet while you're sleeping, this isn't the place for you (I'm talking jack hammers at 8 am on a Saturday). The advertisement says there's a DVD player; there isn't one. Overall, a cute apartment, that's a great inexpensive option if you're traveling on a budget. If not for the loudness of the surrounding area, I would stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

The apartment was clean and well equipped. We were able to walk 10 minutes to the subway each morning and back each evening. We found a great coffee a block away. We did not spend any amount of time here other than first thing in the morning and at the end of the day. There is only one bathroom which is not ideal. We were three adults and it was a bit tricky. Had we been two couples or more, it really would not have worked. We found it very noisy through the night. There is constant traffic noise. The windows do not have any sound-muffling ability; sound-blocking blinds or drapes would make a huge difference.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Louis. Glad you found the area and unit to your liking. For future guests we would like clarify a couple things... as this is an urban home, there is noise and traffic outside. However, the windows are double pane and do muffle sound greatly, just open a window to check. Also, the wall insulation is blown in foam insulation so is sound deadening as well. But again, this is the city so there is outside noise to some degree at all times. We do have other city units that are in locations that are far away from traffic, so let us know if you are a light sleeper!

Reviewer Comments:

I would give five stars except the bed where my wife and I slept was too mushy. If you want to get a good feel of living in the city this is a good spot. I would not describe the area as quiet because of the never ending sound of traffic. But we did not mind the level of noise because we wanted to experience something other than the hotel life of Boston. The few minor problems we had were quickly resolved at no inconvenience. We never felt the neighborhood was unsafe. We were able to park our rental car with no problems on the street and had easy access to public transportation. Other than the one bed we have no complaints.

Good location and comfortable accommodation. The beds were comfy. The place was clean except for the rug in the living room that needed more attention.I would gladly stay there again if Swank properties would just return my deposit as promised in our agreement, it's been 21/2 weeks since check-out and they haven't responded to 2 e-mail inquiries.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, the mention of the security deposit is not true. It was in fact, refunded within 10 days of departure. Sometimes the receiving bank is slow to post the credit to the guests account, but we process within 10 days. Regarding the emails, we got the two on the same day and responded the day after, as that was a Monday. Ms. Miller was very confrontational throughout the 48hrs she was with us, so our guess is that there is were other issues going on.

Reviewer Comments:

I requested a place in Boston and had asked many questions, but never got answers. Questions like do I need a car? Is parking available? What is the address as we are trying to meet with another couple and want to give them an idea of our location. We found out the address just before we left and it was NOT IN BOSTON. The location was in Dorchester and it was terrible! I contacted Swank by email twice stating I didn't feel safe at this location and never got a response. I rang the door bell as I believe the owner lives and was in the building by no response. I called SWANK properties and spoke with someone who said she would have the owner call me ...... but that never happened. Dorchester has a VERY high crime rate and we were scared to stay there.

Owner's Response: Please read the other wonderful reviews for our Upham's Corner properties. All glowing and very satisfied. The neighborhood was not the cup of tea for this guests, but they wanted to spend in a certain budget range and this lovely unit was available for the two nights. By the way, Dorchester IS Boston. Just another neighborhood like Fenway, BackBay, South Boston, etc. We have properties in all the different neighborhoods in Boston, so let us know what you would like and a realistic budget range and we will find it for you!

Reviewer Comments:

The positive: the apartment came with all of the essentials you need (coffee pot, hair dryer, etc). It was as clean as hotels you stay in. Parking was tight but we were able to park within a block each day of our week stay. We used the laundry service on the concierge page and that was very convenient and not too expensive. There is a nice little restaurant next door. The negative: It is on a very busy street, lots of traffic noise which we are not use to. I had arranged to check-in at 4pm but when we arrived the code we received was for the inside door not the outside door, I called and 20 minutes later we got through the outside door, then tried the inside door and the code did not work, it as 4:51 before we got into the unit. The furniture is not that in the pictures. The person who you email with is not professional, does not actually answer questions, and does not make you feel like a valued customer. Things I wish I would have known in advance: traffic noise is right outside your windows and on the weekends includes very loud, booming car radios. That you need 2 door codes. Overall I would stay there again but maybe not on weekends because of the noise.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! As was noted in all of our correspondence regarding the door codes: "The code that you receive upon booking is the code for the unit and it becomes active at your check-in time. The common door code will be sent to the "Message Center" in the Guest Portal at check-in time. As you will be able to log into the internet at the building, simply log into the Guest Portal and see your common door code." The common door code will not work on the unit door and the unit door code will not work on the common door. Although we present that in our correspondence with guests, it is worth taking the time to repeat here since this guest had trouble and mixed up the codes. We understand that traveling is hard and folks show up tired and sometimes overwhelmed. And we are sorry if we missed the mark with this particular guest. But we will always be there to assist and help in any way we can!
