Very lovely house! My frds and I have really enjoyed the stay. Recommend.
Parfait en tout point ! Maison bien conçue, bien équipée, très grande chambre, propre, hôte agréable et attentif. Je recommande absolument !
My 2 daughters and I spent one night here. We had the basement room. No one was around when we got there so we let ourselves in and proceeded to basement. The house is big and beautiful. Light was burned out so we had to use cellphone light to make our way downstairs. The smoke detector needed a new battery so it beeped all night. A very nice women named Donna came to make up the bed and told us that we were the only ones staying at the house, which apparently was not the case because we heard people upstairs later that night. There was no lock on the cellar door so that was a little sketchy. Otherwise, for the price it was acceptable, clean, etc. so for one night it was ok. I don't knoe what the other rooms were like, as we did not really look around upstairs except in living room which was very nice.
What a beautiful home. Our room was spacious and we met some great people while staying there. Hermina and Donna even provided breakfast for us! It's not in the centre of Boston, but it's a quick 20 minutes subway ride to downtown. Thank you for letting us stay!
When we stayed there, Hermina was out of town than we did not have a chance to see her. Her house is located in a convenient location. We used the basement room which is spacious and comfortable. Overall, we had a very good time there. Thank you, Hermina.
Absolutely beautiful room and the basement is very spacious. Close to the train line. Will definitely come back when I'm in town.
I had an excellent stay in Hermina's house. I was in the basement, and it was very comfortable. Clean and quiet. It is a very short walk to the T's red line, so it was easy to get around Boston. Neighborhood is a little sketchy, but I felt safe (plus she is next door to the police station). I had the pleasure of meeting Hermina and she was quite attentive to whatever I needed, not that I needed much. I would definitely consider staying with Hermina again.
Hermina is a very welcoming hostess. The atmosphere at her home was friendly with people coming from different countries. The house is very close from the metro.
Hermina is a very nice and helpful host. She even cared when we arrived a little bit late by asking by textmessage if everything is alright. The room had its own private entrance and was very clean. Easy to reach Boston Downtown. Thanks again for the nice stay! We really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.
