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!

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.
