Conveniently Located to Subway, Great Price

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful trip in Boston and enjoyed our stay here. It is right across the street from Andrew Station (Red Line) which made for quick and easy trips into the city with our 4 year old. There is a small grocery store right across the street as well, so snacks and staples are easy to get. The laundry mat across the street is not a typical "take it and do your own laundry" setup. You have to give it to the owners and they charge by the pound and do it for you, available a few hours later. They use nasty cheap soap, so I would recommend bringing your own.

The place was clean and the pictures are accurate. It has cable TV, which was nice when you just needed to take a break from all the running around. The WiFi is pretty much unusable though. It's EXTREMELY slow (I was getting between 0.9 and 1.9 MB/sec, which according to speedtest.net is a 'F' grade and slower than 91% of the United States). If you have 1 device connected, you can do simple browsing, but more than one, forget about it. And if you are updating an app on your smartphone for instance, any additional connected devices will be toast. This should be upgraded... It was also an 'open' network, which is a bad idea from a security standpoint. (Of note, I tested with power cycling the router to ensure no one else was connected, and the performance was still an issue. I think they just have the very basic of service, which is very poor on Comcast's network).

As for the apartment itself. The bathroom door had a big hole in that someone tried to patch, but as I understand it they were going to try and replace it after our stay. While small, the place was just fine for our needs. They have 1 pot and 1 pan and some of the kitchenware could use replacing, but we were able to do some cooking at the apartment, so it worked out ok too.

While there, we experienced a water leak in the front bedroom's closet when it rained one day. The place is old, but overall, it is adequate. This was getting fixed once we checked out.

Biggest drawback; the upstairs neighbors were very loud, especially on the Friday and Saturday night, so just keep that in mind.

The customer service was great, quick responses, so that is nice. Overall, I would recommend the place.

We used public transportation and UBER for getting around and I'm glad we didn't get a car, there is very little parking anywhere around, so if you have a rental, you are going to be hard pressed to park close to the apartment.

Owner's Response: Aaron, Thank you for staying in my apartment. I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Boston. Having the subway directly across the street is great, as you can be in the city in a matter of minutes taking in the sights. I took a look at the internet and was able to have it reset by Comcast. Easy fix. Thanks for brining this to my attention. The bathroom door has been replaced and the small leak was fixed. (we had wind and rain that blew a couple shingles off).The kitchen is fully stocked. There is much more cookware under the cabinet (corner door). If a guest arrives and is missing their favorite piece of cookware.. Shoot us a message and I'm sure we can drop it off :) We also rent the condo upstairs, so those guests have already departed and are not an issue for future guests. If a guest has a complaint about noise, we always encourage them to reach out 24/7, so we can rectify the issue quickly :) The laundromat across the street does allow guests to complete their laundry as it is a public facility. I'm sure that was just a minor misunderstanding :) I have many friends who use the facility, as well as myself :) Thank you soooo much for your comments. We believe guest comments allow us to provide a better experience and we always implement changes and enhancements from the comments guests provide us. Safe travels! If your travels ever bring you back to the area, feel free to reach out :)
