"Great Apartment and Host"
If you're looking for a comfortable apartment for an extended stay in Boston, consider this one. It's at least as nice as it looks in the photos.
You get the entire unit -- it's spacious, nicely furnished and has an efficient layout with plenty of usable storage space. In addition to the living room, bedroom and bathroom, there's a complete and fully equipped kitchen. There's Comcast TV and Internet service, both of which worked fine.
Before being converted to condominiums, the building was the Navy Yard Metal Shop. So you get fun architectural features like rounded windows and a vaulted ceiling with a skylight in the living room.
The neighborhood is quiet at night.
If you don't have a car, it's an easy commute to/from North Station (and therefore the T) via the regular and reliable Partners (MGH/Spaulding) shuttle buses. There also seemed to be a reasonable number of taxis passing through. I didn't get a chance to try the water taxi to/from Long Wharf, but that's another option for getting into town.
Nitzan was a gracious host -- easy to reach on arrival/departure and quite helpful with neighborhood information. A real pleasure.
Thanks again! This review was very helpful for other guests. Hope your project here is going well. The spring is here and the summer will be a real fun, hope to see you again - come visit the Navy Yard!
Best regards, --Nitzan
