Located at the edge of Harvard campus, Yun's place was ideally located for us to experience Boston for the first time. A simple 15 minute stroll to the Red T1 line near Harvard Square passing thru the Harvard Campus was interesting in itself. A 3 stop T1 ride took us to central Boston in no time at all (for the cost of $2) and the reverse trip was just as easy, no matter what time of the day. We even had the pleasure of walking from Yun's into central Boston along the Charles Rivet which was just a short distance away. Although it took us over an hour, it was a great way to get acquainted with the city.
Alan, the proprietor, made this all very simple for us with provision of simple maps and suggestions. We enjoyed our stay at Yun's place and the interaction with Alan and Yun made us feel like valued guests. Nothing was too hard for them.
The breakfast was simple, fresh and all we could have wanted. Excellent.
The rooms were extremely comfortable and quiet. The room we had contained two single beds which could be pushed together. The bathroom, although shared, was not a problem as Yun's has only two guest rooms. It was sparkling clean (as was the whole house), warm and fresh. A testament to them both.
We would highly recommend Yun's to anyone wishing to visit Boston. Do not be put off by the B&B not being in central Boston. In fact we saw it as an advantage as we had easy access to the city proper by public transport and walking when we wanted and we were able to see the Cambridge/Harvard area which was a hive of activity day and night. We have already recommended Yun's to friends and will stay next time we visit Boston.
