Being a rear apartment, it's nice an quiet. All the amenities are good. The location is fantastic, close to bus stops and only a 1.5km walk into the middle of town. A beautiful walk up Commonwealth Avenue takes you right into the middle of town - lovely on a sunny day. The instruction book for guests is pretty comprehensive but could do with some good tips for local eateries plus some better instructions for us international visitors on working the tv in the family room. Close by is the Trident Bookshop and Cafe - a great place for breakfast.
A close by bus will take you to an excellent day at Harvard - make sure you do the student led tour - great fun.
Boston Duck is also worthwhile. The Freedom Trail is a must. The travel guides say 1.5-2 hours, if you want to stop and learn more, allow much longer. We did 5 hours and we didn't get over the bridge. It is fantastic, so don't rush it.
We loved Boston and it was made better by this accomodation mehr
