This was my second stay at the Fort Hill Inn and we enjoyed both visits. The last stay we enjoyed a three bedroom apartment very nicely decorated and comfortable. The rates were very reasonable, and most tourist attractions were easy to get to by public transportation. There was on the street parking so we were able to use our car...

This place is definitely a 5 star stay. We loved the close proximity to the subway. Our studio was very neat and comfortable. We felt very safe and Terry was always quick to respond to our questions and made us feel very welcomed. If ever in Boston again ... I know where we'll be staying.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very comfortable, clean, spacious & tastefully decorated apartment in a lovely red brick house. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to make a complete meal. We felt totally at home here from the get go. It is a five minute walk to the train station, Roxbury crossing and approximately a 20...

We were looking for a place to stay for our 4 days in Boston. We try to avoid hotels so we found this on VRBO. After booking we were provided with an access code in an email to get in and did not need to check in. It was everything we wanted for our four days complete with a full,...

Thank You So much for the wonderful Review Gary! Just wanted to clarify location for future guests as your title refers to our location as "outside of downtown" we are in fact in Boston and our neighborhood is the geographical center of the city. The center of the tourist attractions is a 5 minute subway ride. 1.5 miles to Back...

We enjoyed our stay here at the Fort Hill Inn. It is reasonable priced, clean and well set up for a couple. Very cute! Everything you need is provided and photos of the apartment were very accurate. Our GPS took us off course but Terrence was great directing us back when we called him. We did have a little trouble...

Seriously...lots of hills and stairs in this one. This was not a secret; we knew what we were getting into upon booking. We travel quite a bit and have hauled ourselves and our stuff through lots of precarious and backbreaking situations in several countries. However, in hindsight, I'm feeling like most of the reviews I read were from people who...

Thank You Solaceofthesea for the nice and detailed review! Yes! Boston is a very European city which includes hills and stairs. 10 hills here and most buildings are similar to ours, 4 or 5 level Victorian Row Houses almost all have stairs. I guess I really didn't think much about the steps until your review;)) Thinking I must be a...

What a great stay in Boston. The condo was great, very clean and unique. It had great charm and the space was great for 3 of us. It had a kitchen that had everything from pots and pans to a blender. Everything like home. Terry was an awesome host. It was a short drive to downtown. The pull out couch...

My husband and I stayed in at the Fort Hill Inn (first floor Apt 1 at 2 Centre Place) for a sight-seeing trip to one of my most favorite cities.

Thank You Wahlumgirl for the glowing review and your comments, very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay.
