Upon arrival we were aware we could get a like kind unit, to my understanding there were 3 units in the building and was able to see pictures of all 3 units, apparently there is a 4th unit and there were no pictures of this unit. the apartment was not clean to the standard I felt it should have been. the bathroom was dirty, walls were scratched and paint was peeling off, these were things that we may have been able to overlook, as we were not planning on spending much time in the apartment anyway, when we opened the sofa sleeper was when we realized there was no way we could stay here, the mattress was soiled with what looked liked bodily fluids and possibly blood, the bottom of the mattress had a section about 1 foot long that was completely torn off. when we called to request another uni,t we were given a mattress cover and an extra blanket that was dirty and soiled as well. we had to leave and get a very expensive hotel. The staff was very apologetic, and said they only became aware of the situation from us. That tells me the cleaning service is very much below standard. This is my first review, I hope this helps someone in the future who is looking at this building for their Boston Vacation.
Less than what we expected...
Although the space itself was a good size, I had to call (and leave a message,no one picked up)3 times to the maintenance #, once because our coffee pot was unusable and twice because the tank less hot water tank failed to work. The third time it happened my husband had to restart it himself. There were ants in the bathroom and the parking spot we reserved was at least a 15 minute walk from the actual apartment. I also didn't understand why if we were paying a cleaning fee , why we had to bring out our garbage,recycling and take the linens off the bed for the next occupant.
NOT AS NICE AS IN THE PICTURES
I stayed there last weekend for 4 nights. We got to the apartment on Thursday night, the shower was completely clogged, the bathroom lacks any shelves to store items, the kitchen utensils and glasses/dishes were very dirty, the lamps in the living room were broken, and a big water stain on the living-room ceiling.
The bedroom is way too small for the size of the bed, there's no room to walk around the bed. The closet is broken and the light fixture not working.
It's a nice little apartment with lots of potential, but it's clear that the company who runs it doesn't care enough. With a little care this would be a much nicer place. It didn't ruin our vacation, but it for sure wasn't the highlight either.
The area is ok, a little noisy but that's not the fault. A little note would be nice.
Thank you for your comments. I apologize for the shortcomings you experienced during your stay. We try to get our maintenance team through units as often as possible, but sometimes we aren't aware of any issues until a guest lets us know, and often times they won't say anything. We will be promptly addressing all of the units you've mentioned and hope we may be able to host you again.
decent place to stay
My sister and I opted for an apt rather than a hotel and other than climbing up a few flights of stairs everyday, it was a decent choice. The apt was clean and had extra towels and linens. We didn't actually need to cook but it was nice to have a kitchen ie cleaning water bottles, having somewhere to snack at. We got in early on Thurs morning and were allowed to 'check-in' early which we were thankful for since we took a redeye into Boston. When we got in, the wifi was not hooked up and there was no hairdryer. I contacted 'management' and Corey replied right away and came in and set up the wifi and told me he would find a hairdryer for me and when I got back later that day, there was one outside the apt waiting.
The area gets a little noisy at night, at least during our stay, lots of ambulances rushing by and cars honking and you can also hear the car repair shop across the street in the morning. Location was ok. I knew what I was getting into when I decided to rent in the South End, but after 4-6 mi of walking everyday in Boston, the extra 20 min from Boston Common or Newbury St/Copley Sq made it just that much further. But the Mass Ave T station is just a short walk down Mass Ave and can get you anywhere from there (we just decided to walk everywhere). The original Flour bakery is less than 10 min away too!
There are a few restaurants/cafes in the area that were always busy- Estelle's just a few doors down, Parish Cafe that's kiddy corner and Francesca's cafe a couple blocks down. We didn't get a chance to visit Estelle's but whenever we passed by it later in the evening, it was full. Parish Cafe was full for lunch most days (we visited their location on Bolyston) and it was good. Francesca's coffee was good and their staff was friendly. My sis and I never had any issues with sketchy people in the area. In fact, someone working at Estelle's stood outside most nights, possibly the owner, and always said hi to us and asked how we were.
Anyhow, no big complaints about this rental. I'm not sure I'd stay this far from the 'attractions' again, but I'd like to think I burned more calories walking that extra mile to/from the apt everyday so I could eat more cannolis and lobster rolls! ;)
