This studio apartment with washer dryer in building is located in the heart of Boston, just a 3 minute walk to Public Transportation. It is designed with simple modern style and has everything you need for a short stay with the comforts of home. Fully stocked kitchen has everything you'd need to cook a basic meal. The
The apartment was small, but we expected that. We were disappointed with the place being a little more run down than the photos conveyed. Some outlets didn’t work, there were signs of water damage in the bathroom ceiling, we saw a few bugs. Just didn’t look or feel as bright and fresh as the photos. I also had to reach out to get the check in instructions, as they weren’t sent when we were told we would receive them, but they were very quick to respond once we did reach out. Overall, it’s a very convenient location and the place works for a short stay.
Albert’s place was a great location and walkable to almost everything in Boston! Very clean and just what we were looking for! I will say, the area does seem to attract a good amount of homeless people who were standing in the doorway to the building many mornings/evenings and we had to have them move out of the way for us to even get inside the building on a few occasions. Besides that, we really enjoyed our stay and already want to plan another trip back :) thanks Albert!
We had a quick two night stay here. The location, while very conveniently located to a lot of the Boston attractions, left us a little concerned while carrying any bags or luggage with the amount of homeless camped outside. Owners cannot control this and we took care to avoid looking like tourists. A heads up for those less apt in reading the area would be helpful. Checking in and out was simple. The unit was stocked with the basics needed for cooking and cleaning up. There is nothing else on check in so a trip to the store would be recommended. We were able to login to wifi after trying some of the other unit connections. Communication was prompt.
Easy check-in and fairly centrally located, some unhoused folks seem to linger around the entry at all hours (but we didn’t feel particularly unsafe). The apartment was clean and had the necessary amenities. Bed could be better, it had a taco effect. Overall good value.
It is a basic place that checks all the boxes. Convenient location, but just remember it is downtown where any persons can be on the street. Instructions were easy to follow and get into the apartment. Some outlets did not work, but there were plenty others.
Albert’s place was perfect for our needs. The property was accurately described and very functional for a trip predominantly spent exploring the city. The location is ideal and very central to Boston. Unfortunately, there were some rather noisy and unsavoury people on the street corner who were up all hours of the night. This is no fault of the property but is something to keep in mind. Overall a fantastic few days in Boston in a very comfortable and well-equipped apartment. Additionally, Albert was a wonderful host who was very proactive and informative. Thank you Albert!
Nothing wrong with the place, just the surrounding area and people that hung around the entrance made it feel unsafe
The apartment is in an excellent location, within walking distance to tons of things to do and good restaurants. Others have noted that getting in was confusing, but I found Albert's instructions very clear and easy to follow. The place is a bit more run down than the photo would lead you to believe (a few outlets didn't work, the bedside lamps were too dim to use), but nothing terrible. The shower and kitchen area were both updated and clean. This particular unit was immediately next to the heavy metal hallway door, which slammed shut after anyone came in or out. It was pretty loud in the room and definitely woke me up occasionally. Albert did provide ear plugs and I'm not sure what else he could do about this, but worth noting if you're a light sleeper.
The location of the stay was great! Very central and easy to walk to many attractions. There were generally people that hung around or close to the door on the street but they never bothered us and the locks on the doors made us feel safe and secure ! The room was good for a short stay. We had an issue with the bathroom but the host was quick to respond and schedule a time the following day to fix the issue. Overall good location and stay
Great, central location and walkable to so many parts of the city. The apartment felt safe. The furniture was great and very clean! Would definitely stay again!
Easy and comfortable stay
Great place and great location. Just be careful at night.
Everything went great! The host was responsive at all times and the apartment looked exactly as the pictures (it’s was spotless as well). The only thing I could mention has to do with the location, it is Downtown and we found vagabunds at the front of the building day and night. That has nothing to do with the host, everything went really smoothly!
Albert’s place was clean and convenient! We appreciated the spacious kitchen area and the location was pretty ideal in terms of accessing different parts of Boston proper. It did get pretty loud at around midnight to 2am due to the nearby clubs and the surrounding area was not necessarily very clean, but appreciated our stay.
The place was clean and tidy. Communication was clear and fast. The flat was a bit on the smaller side but perfectly comfortable for a short stay. Even though the apartment is conveniently located, the area is a bit dodgy, specially at night. There were homeless people outside yelling all the time; on one occasion we even found a person injecting drugs at our doorstep. Overall, the price we paid felt a bit steep compared to what the place had to offer.
A great place to stay with a great host who is super responsive. Would definitely recommend that you stay here and I would come back for a stay if I am ever back in the area.
If you are looking for a nice spot for a getaway, this is not it. Let me say, it’s fine. It’s a shell of a studio apt that is super sterile and not homey. The bed was much smaller than anticipated. Felt like a full. Towels are thin and the bathroom vanity has a lot of wear on it. The best thing is that it is clean. Things the owner can’t help: - expect a lot of homeless people sleeping on the street right outside of the entrance. Where I’m from, that’s normal, but I know it’s not for everyone. - it’s pretty loud outside at night. Good bit of street noise and you can definitely hear doors opening and closing. - no elevator- you will have to lug everything up a pretty decent amount of stairs In a nutshell, if you are one person, looking for a place to crash in a basic, clean, convenient spot in the city, this is great and your $$ supports a great cause!
Great location, clean and good communication from host
Nice stay Good wifi Good AC Clean Bed a bit small and the mattress was a bit worn out
Thanks It makes my workshop days easy. Close to the red and orange line. \0/
A really nice and tidy place with everything you need. Great location in central Boston with subways and parking lot around. The water tap is a little old, other than that it is a good place to stay.
I've stayed at this location a couple of times. The location can't be beat - right by Downtown Crossing, so easy access to Boston and public transit if you're heading to Cambridge or Somerville. The kitchen setup is great if you're staying a few days and want to make some basic meals to save money. I'll be trying to stay here next time I'm in Boston!
Space is a bit small and wifi didn’t work but very clean and convenient location
Our stay was amazing! Could not have picked a better place to stay or better part of town for my first trip to Boston. Very nice and responsive host!
I had a good stay. I have been staying at Albert's airbnbs when I come to Boston for work. The stay was good. Slight issue but the team was responsive to my messages.
Great little apartment! Had a few electrical problems but they came during the stay and were able to fix them. The direct area is a little sketchy but it’s expected in the city.
I was in town for two separate meetings/conferences. The room was easy to find and close to several public transportation options which simplified the logistics of my stay. The unit also has a full kitchen with a nice grocery store very close by. The building isn't particularly luxurious and the room was a bit smaller than it seemed in the pictures. That said, it was perfectly functional for what I needed. Note that I didn't see an elevator anywhere when I was there. This was not a huge deal for me since I was on the second floor but, if you need an elevator, you may want to confirm that one exists before booking.
Great simple place right next to the subway. Clean apartament. Didn't felt that safe in the neigborhood at night because there's a lot of homeless people around the apartament that ask you for money but I didn't had any actual issues with them, just so you know... Otherwise good value for money. Great communication and pro hosts.
Very solid for a downtown Boston spot. Literally just needed a convenient place to spend the night and this place met that simple need. Very clean space, host was great. Little pricy but its downtown Boston and everything we wanted to do was in walking distance.
Humble stay and a great deal. Responsive host. Lots of noise outside apartment but to be expected in a city. Minimal cleaning fee and minimal expectations on the guest. Very reasonable, would recommend. Would stay again for a short trip.
great location, good price
Nice, clean spot in an area of the city that has easy access to many other parts either by walking or taking the T.
Super great location! Parking is a nightmare if you have a car though!
Mistakenly booked another Airbnb under this same host rather than booking this Airbnb. Asked host for a refund due to the fact that I had previously stayed with them and I wished to rebook with them as well. Although I did not expect a full refund and was asking simply as a gesture, the host did not communicate clearly despite the fact I followed up numerous times. Each time I asked for an update on the situation, the host stated that they were still waiting on a response from management. This continued several times over the course of close to two weeks. Eventually, the "no refund" date came which forced me to settle for a partial refund. I have not received any update until this day. Although the Airbnb itself is in a prime location, corners are definitely cut (yellow stains on blanket) and clear communication is not present. I would've recommended this Airbnb but their attempt to push off their response to force me to settle for a partial refund makes me unable to do so.
We loved our stay here! The location is excellent — within walking distance of Boston Common, public transit hubs, shopping, coffee shops, grocery store, and restaurants. The apartment is clean and stylish. Newly renovated bathroom; new appliances, comfy bed. And again, the best location we could have asked for. The main drawback is that the hallway door slams quite loudly and echoes into the apartment. It didn’t bother either of us or wake us up, however. If you’re a light sleeper, I would recommend choosing another of Albert’s apartments in this area.
The apt is very centrally located. It is a smaller studio, but it was clean and getting in and out was very easy.
Great location and responsive host!
Great location. Walking distance to almost all main attractions in city.
We always got a quick response to our questions. Super great location without a car. Blocks from Boston Commons and start of Freedom Trail. At our corner were a convenience store (7/11), pharmacy (CVS), doughnut/coffee shop (Dunkin), major retailer (Macy’s). Lots of eateries in neighborhood. A 20 minute walk to the Long Wharf area and a parkade with rental cars. Address (103) is not obvious. It shows up on the wall inside the entry door, not outside by the keypad. The hot water was not a full stream by itself like the cold, which affected the shower. The ear plugs helped block out street noise for sleeping. The thermostat was easily operated so we were quite comfortable. We didn’t cook, but the kitchen was well equipped.
Great location and easy to talk to Albert!
They let us check in early and everything was perfect! Great location for our little family!
My stay was lovely. The studio was centrally located, fully equipped, and spotless. Check-in and check out were smooth. I’d definitely stay here again.
as other airbnb users have said, the location of this studio is perfect for visiting he Boston Commons and it's a short walk to other historical sites and the downtown area in general. The studio was also clean and comfortable. Communication with the host was efficient and he replied in a very timely manner. There were a few things about this airbnb that I found a little disappointing. My room was on the 2nd floor which is hard to get luggage up because its a walk up. My room was also right off of the main street and right next to the stairwell so it was quite noisy with people coming in and out and with the traffic outside, which I suppose is unavoidable. There was also a noise coming from the kitchen area near the refrigerator that kept waking me up, it wasn't just a regular electric appliance buzzing sound, it was more abrupt and it almost sounded like there was like a mouse or something behind the refrigerator (I dont actually believe there was because the place was very clean, but I couldn't pinpoint exactly where the sound was coming from and the irregular or sporadic noise kept disturbing me). There was also a loose outlet by the bed which was inconvenient because I couldn't plug in my phone charger without it falling out of the wall and I prefer to have my phone nearby when sleeping away from home. I did speak with the owner about this and he said he wasn't aware of this and housekeeping would take a look. Overall, the place was good for the location and if you're not easily disturbed by light/noises. Another thing to consider is the check in time at 5pm and check out time at 10am, it is quite a short duration, which made it difficult for me to plan excursions. The host did direct me to daily or hourly luggage storage sites which was very nice of him and that helped a lot.
Very nice place. The location is great but very noisy at nights. Also, the bed is too small for 2 people.
Perfect location! I loved walking right out the door and into the heart of Boston.
Albert’s place is great! We felt really safe and secure while we were there and really enjoyed the location. The central location made it so easy for us to walk to virtually any place we wanted to visit!
I would love to return to Boston in the future and stay in the same place. It helped make the trip extra special.
Great communication! The messages were quickly replied to and solutions were found. We were able to do early check in for a small fee. Check in was super easy. The directions were easy to follow. It is keyless so makes it so easy to come and go. The location is such a great spot in downtown area. It’s right by the transit and by many great spots. It can be a bit noisy in the evening/early morning (it’s a city!). I would recommend earplugs. The apartment is cozy, perfect for 2. It was clean and had everything we needed.
On the plus side: Excellent location and super-clean. The team in the message center responded instantaneously to our inquiries. However, we would have preferred a regular TV to one that needed to be programmed and a Keurig with pods to the coffee-maker with no coffee offered to us.
Great location near the T lines and within walking distance to the major tourist attractions!
Great location, I walked EVERYWHERE from this spot. Nice and neat place to lay your head.
Location is great. Was a perfect place for us to explore the city and very comfortable for 2 people.
Pros: - The unit was clean. - The location is great. - Nice kitchen. - The host respond to our messages and tried to help. Cons: - We had a hot water problem in the shower. This might be a one time thing but it was unpleasant. The host communicated with us to solve it, but those things take time and energy. - Full bed size (NOT QUEEN) - The building isn't well maintened- moldy smell in the hallway and not very clean.
We had a pleasant stay. Location was perfect. We could attend the mass daily. Only suggestion would be to have a elevator to carry the bags to 2nd floor. Would recommend to our friends.
Perfect location for people visiting town! Close to many transit stops and a lot of things within walking distance too. Place was very clean & just as pictured.
This was my second time staying at one of Albert’s properties in Boston. This was in a great location of working or looking to explore the downtown area and the unit was as described.
Walkable to a lot of attractions and close to public transit.
Clean, easy stay. Communicative and helpful host. You’re in a good spot downtown with easy walking access to many key locations. Air conditioning, hot shower, and comfortable bed - perfect spot for a Boston stay!
Convenient and clean.
Very clean apartment & great location to everything in downtown Boston.
We loved our stay at Albert's place. The check in was thoroughly explained and you can't beat the central location. Studio was clean and had all of the basic essentials. Would definitely stay there again.
The space is very tight and does get quite noisy; we were warned about the noise in the description so came prepared with our white noise machine which did help. The location is great and was within walking distance to almost everything we needed or close to the MBTA stations for public transport. The space was clean and Albert was great with communication and responding quickly.
Cute apartment in perfect location in Boston. Good for one or 2 people (note it is a full size bed, not queen). Small, but perfect for folks looking for a home base while exploring the city. Location cant be beat! Next to the T, walking distance to almost everywhere. Great little breakfast spot a few doors down (Deli One) and a grocery store a block away. We would absolutely stay here again.
The location was great for access to the city, but I'd recommend against going out alone after dark as we were approached by several drug dealers and people who were clearly high.
Conveniently located in downtown Boston, easily walkable to subway station and lots of good things to do near the place! The unit is nice and clean, well-organized and well-stocked! The host was also communicative and helpful and friendly and very responsive! Thank you for hosting me!
Small cosy studio at a very convenient location. We had a great time exploring Boston over a short stay. Check-in and check-out was smooth. Host was very helpful and prompt. We had a small issue with the electronic lock running low on battery but this swiftly resolved. The only issue we had were some of linen were not cleaned as well. Otherwise, no complaints. Recommend for people looking for staycation in Boston.
great location, the place has everything you need for a few days while visiting Boston. clean, well organized and comfortable!
The communication with the host was awesome! Very quick to respond and very helpful. We had an internet router issue and they fixed it by the next day. This apartment was pretty much exactly as described. I won't go into all the details already mentioned by other reviewers. It was a little small for the two of us, because we each had 2 luggage bags as we'd finished a trip to Europe beforehand. For one person or a couple with minimal belongings, this would work fine. The space was as described in the listing. RIght in the heart of downtown, easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go. We would definitely stay at any home managed by Albert!
Great location. Sparkling clean. Great communication.
Great location, small but clean.
Small studio in excellent central location.
The unit is very clean and well-maintained and I would stay here again. It's in a great spot in Boston. I contacted the host to let them know the bed is a full size and not a queen and I'm hoping the listing is updated to reflect this. Overall the management is very prompt and responsive.
Great location, easy checkin, very clean, easy hosts to deal with. Would stay again
Host is very prompt on responding. The studio is clean and all equipped.
Place was in such an awesome location and everything we needed!
great host, great location, will definitely recommend
Great location. Communication with host is fast and reliable.
Great host and great location!! Open and easy communication. very thankful and appreciative of their last minute accommodations. would absolutely recommend and hope to come back.
Good location Downtown. Walking distance to South Station and all local amenities. The apartment itself is small with all the basics but no extras. The towels are tiny so you may want to take your own. The apartment is right next to the entry door for the floor, every time someone comes and goes the door slams which is not ideal when you're sleeping.
Great location, really good communication by the group. Very clean place in the heart of downtown, just keep in mind while booking the check-in hours are pretty strict, so we had to book at extra day for a morning arrival (all good and expected by us!) Thanks!
Albert’s place is in a great location in Boston with all needed amenities. We enjoyed our stay in this cozy apartment.
Good location right in the heart of downtown and has all the basic amenities you need for a comfortable short stay
Amazing location, close to everything, perfect place to spend a weekend in Boston!
It was a decent stay with clean towels provided. Quite a selection of stream services
Really nice flat perfectly located if you want to visit Boston !! I recomand ! And you won’t have to worry about anything since hosts will always answer your questions.
Beautiful place. Great location. Super easy check in process
amazing location for a lower price than most hotels. within walking distance of Faneuil hall, Quincy food market, Boston South Station and Ogawa Coffee, home of the best caramel latte I've ever had. it was so nice to relax in a beautiful studio apartment after a long day of sightseeing.
Great location close to everything
very nice place well situated clean and very easy check in we were very happy.
This place was perfect for my brief stay! So much was just a short walk away & I loved the convenience of that. Will definitely be booking here again next time I come out to Boston! Thank you!
Great location! Was staying for a conference at that Boston Convention Center and it was very walkable. Also had great restaurants close by and access to public transportation. Would stay here again!
Fantastic place! Great location and easy access to public transportation. Super clean and plenty of amenities. 10/10 would recommend, we can’t wait to come back to Boston and stay here again!!
Great place! Would recommend!
Great location and spacious clean area!
A cute but spacious studio apt just as advertised! The bed was incredibly soft and the TV was the perf size for movie night with snacks purchased from the 7/11 down the block. It was located within walking distance to places we went which was great. If I come back to Boston I will definitely be staying here again!
This was a phenomenal stay! Great location for exploring Boston. Close to downtown area and public transport nearby. Our hosts were precise in their explanations of self-check in and were very communicative. The studio was spacious with appliances, a comfy bed, and TV with Netflix! The bathroom was clean, shower had good water pressure. Would stay here again and highly recommend to a friend!
Great stay! Perfect for date night and close to everywhere you need to be. I would love to come back when the weather is warmer and explore the city more. We were very cozy at the studio and pleased with our stay.
Great stay in an accessible area
Perfect location. Cozy studio. Clean enough and when I had a minor issue it was resolved right away. I’d stay here again .
Great location. Perfect for a couples getaway in Boston.
nice location with nice room
Incredible location right in the middle of Downtown Crossing, walking distance to North End, Chinatown, Boston Commons, Quincy Market, etc! Great amenities with clean restroom and a large TV as well as a spacious kitchen area. Everything you could need. A great deal, will stay here the next time I’m in Boston!
Great location. Walking distance from main areas of interest. Host was great with communication.
Great spot. So spacious and exactly as advertised. Modern and clean. And exactly where you want to be. However, if you’re a light sleeper, it might not be the spot for you.
Perfect little studio for 2 people. Great location, walking distance to everything. There were some homeless people hanging around outside the building but they were friendly and we didn’t have any trouble
Excellent location in downtown Boston, clean appartment and great communication from the host
Very easy, great location, lovely spot!
This studio was in the perfect location. We were able to walk anywhere that we needed too. It is advertised as pet friendly but it does not say that it is 200 per animal. There is also no parking with the studio. You either have to find street parking, which can’t be utilized overnight because of street sweeping or garage parking.
For non-locals, this is right in the middle of everything you may want to get to. You can walk or drive but you are in the heart of Boston. There is city “noise” (hello, Boston) but the location and easy check-in made everything PERFECT. 10/10 would stay again.
The place is nice and cozy and the area great for going everywhere
Great place, all around! Excellent communication, excellent location. Would absolutely stay again.
Great apartment in the Downtown Crossing neighborhood of Boston. Extremely close to public transportation, Chinatown, and the Waterfront. I would recommend this space to anyone who asked! Clean, easy to check-in, good communication.
Nice location, very centralized. It’s a very basic apartment with only the essentials, but comfortable enough! It is a little loud in the building, but other than that, a great find!
It was a perfect apartment! Definitely recommend!
Great location downtown, quick walk to Chinatown and the North End (skip the lines at Mike’s/Modern and go to Caffé Vittoria for pastries/espresso martinis) as well as T lines. The studio is compact but has the essentials.
We loved the location of the apartment, it was close to everything to do in Boston. I would have given a 5 star review had the apartment had a queen size bed. I inquired as to the size of the bed and was told it was a queen, but in fact, it was a full size bed. I think this should be noted on the website. I also think there should be instructions in the apartment as to how to use the television. We were never able to get it to work.
Communication was excellent, the management team was very responsive. The room was very clean, comfy and homie. The building is very secure, so my cousin and I felt very safe. The location was excellent and could walk pretty much anywhere. Though we had a very short stay (1 night), I will definitely book again for my next trip to Boston.
centrally located with,restaurants,coffee and even a brewery nearby. lots of homeless but they weren't agressive.
The apartment was clean, in a solid location, and equipped with the things I needed for a short work trip in Boston. Definitely would recommend if you're not looking to spend ample time in the space - it's a good home base to shower, sleep, etc. The apartment was well equipped. The noise that is mentioned in the listing isn't too - about what is expected for a downtown location.
Great location, small but definitely has all the essentials. Super clean! Great for two people! Good location! Easy coming and going.
Cute space in a great location, very good communication from host and he was accommodating. The area is noisy, not so much because it’s in the city, more so from the loud door that people enter through. Also the space is pretty small, a bit smaller than it appears in the picture.
This apartment is in a great location and the owners are very easy to work with and helpful.
For the price of the place, it was surprisingly not clean. Lots of hair on the floor and stains on the bedding. Towels weren’t sufficient. I was surprised. But this is a nice location and the TV is huge as well.
Really great little spot. Full kitchen and AMAZING location! So close to red, orange, and green line. Hosts are great communication. Would definitely stay here again!
The place is in an amazing location and a walkable distance to many great sites in the city! Perfect suite for anyone wanting to explore the heart of Boston.
My partner and I loved this place! Very convenient location, and very close to several different subway stops. The apartment was very clean, and the perfect size for 2 people. It is noisy, but so is any other place in the middle of the city. We were visiting from an even larger city, so any outside noise was no bother to us.
Great location and great communication from Albert. Would definitely stay there again.
Convenient location, great communication. Recommend for short stay in Boston.
Great little apartment in one of the most central locations in Boston. Walking distance to all of the fun places Boston has to offer. 30 second walk to the subway. Apartment was very clean and had plenty of amenities and utilities. Albert and Brian were easy to communicate with and were always on hand for anything we needed. Thanks!
Great downtown location. Close to Boston Common and other amenities.
