We stayed here for two nights in September 2010. We had both rooms and it really felt like a home away from home. Gorgeous rooms, comfy beds, great bathrooms with nice products. The area is gorgeous and the street and the building itself are lovely - exactly what we were looking for for our first visit to Boston. The shared kitchen worked really well for us as we had both rooms but I think it would be a bit annoying if the room was occupied by another couple, just in terms of the noise (i.e the coffee machine). Its also a short walk to Toro which is a fantastic tapas place (very popular - we had a 3 hour wait as they don't take reservations!). I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone going to Boston.
