This apartment is in the heart of it all! Walk to all the endless attractions, public transportation, big Boston hospitals, restaurants, Boston Common, State House, and the theater and financial districts!
Beacon Hill - Quirky, but fun! Located in the very heart of it all - Fabulous restaurants, shops and attractions! Full of history everywhere you look! Just minutes on foot to the State House, Boston Common, museums, financial district, theater district, Chinatown, Metro, Charles River, free concerts on the waterfront, Frog Pond skating, and all major hospitals. It is a furnished basement apartment, not a room and not a share! The apartment which includes cable TV and wireless internet, is very unusual. It has a foyer where you can sit and eat or just spend time watching all the interesting people walk buy! It has a fully equipped kitchen and small living room with basic cable & wireless internet. There are two sleeping areas with double beds. One is off the living room and has a privacy curtain. The second area is in the back and has a door. The bed is raised on a platform but a step stool is there to assist you. The retro, shiny ship wallpaper is a conversation piece! The bathroom facilities are separate from a large cement shower off the back bedroom. The building has old-time heavy wrought iron marble stairs. A washer and dryer are in the basement right out the back door. We provide laundry detergent and a few quarters to wash a load or two! All of this and less of a $25 taxi ride from the airport!
If you plan on staying for a while, Stop & Shop's PeaPod will deliver groceries to "The Hill" for a nominal fee. If you are vegan or just careful what you eat, Whole Foods is just a couple of blocks away.
Beacon Hill’s narrow cobblestoned streets and brick sidewalks are the very essence of old Boston. This historic neighborhood is located directly behind the gold-domed State House adjacent to downtown. Beacon Hill is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in the metropolitan area. Its residential character, tight-knit community, and high level of police protection contribute to its general safety.
Charles and Cambridge Streets are the major commercial strips in Beacon Hill. Charles Street offers some of the most exclusive shopping experiences in the metropolitan area. Cambridge Street is a busy thoroughfare that primarily features restaurants and supermarkets.
Beacon Hill is one of the closest neighborhoods to MIT and is easily accessible to public transportation. The MBTA Charles Street/MGH Red Line station is located in the northwest corner of Beacon Hill and is just one stop away from Kendall/MIT. The Park Street Red Line station, a short walk across the Boston Common, is two stops from MIT.
On-street parking in Beacon Hill is extremely limited. Because this community is so accessible by foot, bicycle, and public transportation, however, there is little need for a car

Overall, we enjoyed our week in 64B Revere. It's a great location for visiting Boston. The kitchen is very well equipped, there was plenty of hot water (the shower was fine) and although it was still very cold outside, the apartment was always warm. However, as a retired couple staying the last week of March, we did find some challenges. Our only real issue was with the lighting. Some lights were not working when we arrived, there were additional light failures during our stay, and even when all lights were working, some areas could have been better lit. In general we feel that the property owner should have the entire electrical system checked. However, Donna, the agent/host, was always accessible to answer questions, dealt very promptly with the recurring light bulb issues and agreed that some instructions for using appliances would be helpful, especially for people from outside the US.

Donna was very sweet and accommodating. She was also very communicative and helpful as a host. He apartment was very nice and in a great location in Beacon Hill, perfect for a nice fall walk to the financial district.
We stayed in this quirky place which is managed by Donna for six days in early October 2014. The place had many positives - it was in a fantastic (and very quiet!) location, it had some nice personal touches (toiletries and the like) and although not large in size, my friend and I never felt that we were on top of each other. There is only really one 'true' bedroom (which is where the shower is) with the second bedroom off the kitchen separated by a partial wall/curtain combo - we didn't find this a problem, but larger parties moving about at different times might. The only negative thing for us was the shower. It seemed to come in only two temperatures - scolding hot and freezing cold ! It took a good 20 minutes of adjusting the dial to get it even vaguely tolerable. Definitely became an issue towards the end, however despite it all, it was an excellent base to see Boston. Nearest T-Line stop is MGH/Charles Street on the Silver Line.
We stayed there for one week. The apartment is small if you want to spend time there, but with such an awesome location it is located at, you will have plenty of options on hings to do. Will clearly recommend it to anyone.
This was a great place to stay very central and walking distance to everything we needed. Donna was very helpful and informative. The apartment was even better than described and we had everything we needed. Many thanks i hope to return someday :D
Donna was very accommodating to my girlfriend and I during our stay. Our check-in time was 3:00pm and we arrived at Noon. Donna made arrangements for us to drop off our luggage while the apartment was being cleaned. This was very nice and much appreciated. I cannot stress enough how great the location of this apartment is in Beacon Hill. That is the number 1 selling point on this apartment. It is in a very safe, high end neighborhood. It is within a mile or two of all the hot spots in Boston!
As others have stated, the place itself is a little quirky but cozy enough. There is a small couch in the living room which can seat two, full kitchen, cable tv, and wifi Internet connection. All nice touches for any down time you may have on your trip. There is a half bathroom next to the kitchen and a spacious shower in the back of the apartment. The front bedroom doesn't have a door but this didn't matter much to us. The bed was comfortable enough, albeit not too big (keep in mind I am 6 foot 1). It was probably a full or twin size bed. If you need two beds, just take note that the mattress in the back is a bit hard and I think could be a bit tough to sleep on. This did not come into play for us. There is also a washer and dryer (takes quarters) in a room separated from the apartment by a door with a lock on it in the bathroom. Laundry detergent was provided by Donna.
Overall, this was a great place to stay and made our vacation very enjoyable. We will miss the walk up the hill to get to 64B!
Thank you for the nice review. I am glad I was able to accommodate you and your girlfriend. Incidentally, the bed in the front room is a full and the one in the back is a Queen. On first inspection, it would seem the mattress in the back was a bit hard but I slept on it for a week while my mom and I stayed there and I have to say I would like to trade that mattress for my own! Thanks again! Donna
