Very clean, nice rental.
Kimberley J. November 2, 2017
Cute apartment in Boston. Close to transit, which is really helpful. Close to a Dunkin Donuts, and there's a restaurant next door, though we never went there. The unit really needs updating, but for the price it is sufficient. Overall appearance is a little shabby: the couch in the living room is stained, the coffee table is shaky and pretty unstable, and some of the floor mats are frayed and/or stained (presumably from a bleach spill). Some of our towels were also stained. Furniture in pictures is completely different from what's in the apartment. That being said, it was clean and being on the second floor of the building felt pretty safe. The owner was easy to get in touch with, although when we had issues with the temperature and they said they'd come the next day, they didn't come for two days. There are no extra linens or blankets on the property, so if you're cold it can be tough. The blinds didn't always work. The street is EXTREMELY loud. EXTREMELY. I can't say this enough. If you are the type of person who needs quiet while you're sleeping, this isn't the place for you (I'm talking jack hammers at 8 am on a Saturday). The advertisement says there's a DVD player; there isn't one. Overall, a cute apartment, that's a great inexpensive option if you're traveling on a budget. If not for the loudness of the surrounding area, I would stay here again.

The place was clean and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us.

We stayed at this rental during a national conference. The house was very cozy and nice.

Everything about this rental was very good and easy. This was my first time reserving and it was done with ease. Great communication electronically. The apartment was exactly how advertised. The only negative we had was that we felt the check in time of 6pm was too late. We had to pay extra once there to get in earlier.

The flat has three nice sleeprooms, the kitchen is appropriately equipped. The pathroom is fine as well. We had a good stay.
Anonymous August 21, 2017
The positive: the apartment came with all of the essentials you need (coffee pot, hair dryer, etc). It was as clean as hotels you stay in. Parking was tight but we were able to park within a block each day of our week stay. We used the laundry service on the concierge page and that was very convenient and not too expensive. There is a nice little restaurant next door.

The negative: It is on a very busy street, lots of traffic noise which we are not use to. I had arranged to check-in at 4pm but when we arrived the code we received was for the inside door not the outside door, I called and 20 minutes later we got through the outside door, then tried the inside door and the code did not work, it as 4:51 before we got into the unit. The furniture is not that in the pictures. The person who you email with is not professional, does not actually answer questions, and does not make you feel like a valued customer.

Things I wish I would have known in advance: traffic noise is right outside your windows and on the weekends includes very loud, booming car radios. That you need 2 door codes.

Overall I would stay there again but maybe not on weekends because of the noise.

Good location and comfortable accommodation. The beds were comfy. The place was clean except for the rug in the living room that needed more attention.I would gladly stay there again if Swank properties would just return my deposit as promised in our agreement, it's been 21/2 weeks since check-out and they haven't responded to 2 e-mail inquiries.

This three bedroom, one bath second-story unit was as described. All queen beds with lots of closet space. Minutes from Andrews Station on the Red Line walking or bus available. Lots of foot traffic in the neighborhood. Lance and Swank were the best, definitely available 24/7 for anything. The only thing missing in the kitchen was a tea kettle - we had a tea drinker in our party. There is a mall a 10 minute walk away with grocery, restaurants, and stores. Too many great restaurants to name, sites to see, etc., after all it is Boston. It is a second story walk-up for someone who can't do stairs. There were five of us and we never felt like we were on top of each other - large living room and kitchen. The only drawback is lots of traffic noise if you aren't used to a big city, and it is a "cut-through" at rush hour if you are trying to take a taxi or Uber allow extra time. I highly recommend Roseclair for someone coming to Boston for business or pleasure.

I requested a place in Boston and had asked many questions, but never got answers. Questions like do I need a car? Is parking available? What is the address as we are trying to meet with another couple and want to give them an idea of our location. We found out the address just before we left and it was NOT IN BOSTON. The location was in Dorchester and it was terrible! I contacted Swank by email twice stating I didn't feel safe at this location and never got a response. I rang the door bell as I believe the owner lives and was in the building by no response. I called SWANK properties and spoke with someone who said she would have the owner call me ...... but that never happened. Dorchester has a VERY high crime rate and we were scared to stay there.

The apartment was clean and well equipped. We were able to walk 10 minutes to the subway each morning and back each evening. We found a great coffee a block away.
We did not spend any amount of time here other than first thing in the morning and at the end of the day.
There is only one bathroom which is not ideal. We were three adults and it was a bit tricky. Had we been two couples or more, it really would not have worked.
We found it very noisy through the night. There is constant traffic noise. The windows do not have any sound-muffling ability; sound-blocking blinds or drapes would make a huge difference.
James M. October 23, 2017
I would give five stars except the bed where my wife and I slept was too mushy. If you want to get a good feel of living in the city this is a good spot. I would not describe the area as quiet because of the never ending sound of traffic. But we did not mind the level of noise because we wanted to experience something other than the hotel life of Boston. The few minor problems we had were quickly resolved at no inconvenience. We never felt the neighborhood was unsafe. We were able to park our rental car with no problems on the street and had easy access to public transportation. Other than the one bed we have no complaints.
Mark H. July 22, 2016
Every step of the way clearly spelled out. Would be happy to stay here again

We really enjoyed the Roseclair. Nice apartment, location, furniture, appliances. The property managers were responsive and attentive. Only complaint is that although they responded to emails, I did not succeed in getting them to return phone calls.
Anonymous July 24, 2016
The rental unit was clean and nicely decorated. There was plenty of room for our family and pets; however, the pet policy wasn't clearly communicated and there is a high fee if your pets make any noise so plan accordingly if they'll join you. The street below tends to be very noisy because it's on an ambulance route & the neighborhood was a bit sketchy in certain areas.
Peggy M. June 8, 2016
We enjoyed staying at Roseclair2. Close to the T and was fun living like a Bostonian. The apartment was fairly well stocked. There was not many spoons or a measuring cup. The roller shades in living room and bedroom were old and difficult to let back up. Good value compared to having to pay for 3 rooms at a hotel!

We had a great time in Boston. The place was clean and like the pictures. It was very convenient to not worry about a physical key.

This was our first time using a VRBO and we had a wonderful experience.
The property was well maintained both inside and out. There were 5 in our party and we appreciated 3 bedrooms, a kitchen and gathering space in the TV room. We were about a 12 minute walk to the subway and felt safe walking through the neighborhood. Because the building is quite old and the windows single paned we could hear the road traffic easily but it didn't keep us awake. Some squeaky floorboards added to the quaintness of our apartment. Overall, a great place that I would revisit.
There was an excellent restaurant right next door with other options within a couple blocks.
Anonymous August 18, 2017
The house was nice and clean but the area seemed a little sketchy. Parking was a challenge. Although we had prearranged for an early check in, the codes we were given did not work. The management team also did not refund our $250 security/cleaning deposit on time as promised. I had to contact them again to get it. The best part of our stay was the restaurant next door.

Great experience! Comfortable apartment, love the original details, and customer service representative was very helpful!

Terrific place in a great location..access to public transit, free roadside parking and well equipped. Very professional property management.
Anonymous October 9, 2016
This place was perfect for our vacation needs. There was plenty of space and the kitchen was well-stocked for us to cook our meals. There was a bus stop right outside the unit, but we usually walked to the subway, which was about 1/2 mile away. We had some issues with being able to adjust the thermostat, but the problems were resolved quickly through email. The floors were a little creaky so hopefully we didn't disturb anyone below us. The neighborhood felt safe, even walking back from the subway after a Red Sox game at night. There was a yummy Polish deli just a few blocks away with the best salami. Thanks for making our Boston trip such a great experience!
Anonymous August 18, 2016
Very nicely furnished and clean. Neighborhood felt safe walking to dinner at night. The Avenue Grille one block away has great Grille food and lots of locals eat there. Only one bathroom for 3 bedrooms is a drawback but otherwise the place is just as advertised and I would definitely stay there again.
Mace H. August 7, 2016
I was traveling with my two children. I asked explicitly about the safety of the area. I was assured it was VERY safe. Well, the uber driver drove us past a burned out apartment building on our way there which made me wonder. But, the apartment looked nice and we needed a place to land for the night. Oh what a miserable night. Sirens, mostly police, ALL NIGHT! Clearly there's a crime problem in the area, When I wasn't listening to sirens, I was listening to all the non-stop, all night traffic or the upstairs neighbors. The walls were paper thin. Further, there was no way to adjust the AC so it was hot.. With no air, the kitchen was like an oven when I cooked breakfast in the morning. I was SO HAPPY when we left that place! I was also exhausted!
Angela G. October 12, 2016
The place is great! Felt like a real Boston resident for the weekend. It is in Dorchester, which is a cab ride away from the city and if you are looking to get away at night this is the right place. There are only stairs so anything up and down was a workout. You could hear the neighbors a little too well, especially in the stairways. Nice neighborhood but a lot of street noise so opening a window was really not an option for long periods or overnight when we got too warm. Had more than enough amenities and space for our needs. I would return with a car to be able to explore the area better and get to the city. The 224 restaurant is right next door, food was great but pricey and slow service. We didn't get to wander much past our immediate block since spent most time in city and dark when back in area but appeared to have some areas of retail not far from what seen on bus. Bus stop across from place not for city access but other bus stop well within walking distance. Transportation slightly confusing at first. I felt secure in the apartment and found the furnishings and supplies very nice. Clean, secure, and comfortable.

Fine quarters for a brief stop!
Ken H. November 16, 2016
Great value for the money. Good location if you have access to a vehicle. Parking was available on the street, but we had to leave our car 3 blocks away to find a space. The rooms were all very spacious and super clean. Would definitely stay here again.
Margo S. May 7, 2017
I stayed in the Roseclair with my mom and aunt who could not stop raving about the place. It is a beautiful unit with all the necessities that make staying in Boston easy and convenient. Would highly recommend.
Ugochukwu N. July 14, 2013
I rented two units for my family at a really cheap boston rate. I prayed the units would look as good as the photos, but exceeded my expectations. My family loved this location. It was very close to the airport which was a bonus for us. 2 thumbs up for Swank!
John L. August 31, 2013
The apartment was an excellent base for a short stay in Boston. Close to the city centre and well served with local shops, restaurants, etc. The apartment itself is very well furnished, roomy enough for 3 adults and a child, good equipment (although a few obvious things were missing!) and very clean. Highlight is the restaurant next door, really good food and great to have so close by. Only negative was the noise and disruption caused by roadworks - not Swank's fault and really appreciative of their response to the problem. Overall would recommend both Roseclair and Swank for a stay in Boston.
Mark D. October 26, 2012
The apartment is very nicely finished and presented. Only comment is that kitchen supplies are on the short side i.e there were four of us but there were only 2 cereal bowls, so we thought a closer look needs to be taken at what it is provided in the kitchen based on the number of people who can be accommodated.
The windows are single glazed there is quite a bit of road noise, especially in the front bedroom.
Key and entry/departure system is very efficient. Neighbourhood is fine, no issues with the walk to the T.
All in all enjoyed the stay.
Olivier H. July 28, 2013
The property is well located to visit Boston as Metro station is close. The main negative point is the street noise all night long.
A few improvement points should be considered:
- get more than 6 glasses and dishes,
- a larger table for diner
- better noise cancellation windows to be able to have a comfortable sleep

This apartment is located in north Dorchester in a decent working class neighborhood. It has reasonable access to the subway (1/2 mile) and a small grocery/convenience store nearby. I think this is a great place for an extended stay, particularly if renting a car and traveling outside of downtown Boston. For those looking to be primarily downtown, it's a decent deal for a family.
Anonymous August 15, 2013
We were very pleased with the property. It was spacious, comfortable, well equipped, and within walking distance to the T for quick and easy access to the city. The restaurant next door was excellent - great people, food and patio.
Laure M. July 23, 2013
Although i was not expecting an extraordinary rental at this price, i have been disappointed by the property management. Mr Swank should definitely rethink his call center service and could probably make great savings by simply decommissioning the current company! Unhelpful, almost rude pretending they do not understand my English ( i am French but work in an international company since 10 years and quite used to conf calls in English!). This aside, the appartment size is ok, but it is very noisy. I will not come back.
Anonymous June 10, 2013
Staff very friendly and helpful. At first we were struggling a bit with the door lock box, but figured it out eventually. Free wireless. Next T stop (red line) within walking distance (about 15 minutes), but there also seems to be a bus (which we didn't use, so no feedback on that). Beds could be cleaner. Our bathroom did not have a door lock. Hairdryer provided. There's a nice restaurant right next door. All in all a nice place to stay.
Anonymous May 31, 2014
Apartment was fantastic! Clean, comfortable, spacious. Loved the neighborhood, and the local hangouts. Apartment is just 5 min walk to the train. Just a few minor details were lacking. There were no replacement trashbags for the trashcans, no extra toilet paper. It would have been nice to have some info about the train and public transportation in Boston. But all-in-all a wonderful vacation. I would absolutely stay there again.
Melody O. January 1, 2014
Nous avons adoré notre expérience dans ce super appartement. À 10 minutes à pieds du métro, 2 minutes en auto des magasins comme l'épicerie. Stationnement dans la rue facile. Assez grand pour 2 familles. Les chambres sont bien insonorisées l'une des autres mais on entends le bruit des autos dehors. Les lits sont confortables. Rien à redire. Merci

La verdad es que es un buen sitio para dormir aunque la relación con el propietqario es nula y no muy buena.

I brought the whole family to Boston. We stayed at Uphams Corner, it was fantastic. There is an excellent resteraunt next door and easy cab or train into central boston. A+

Overall we were satisfied with the rental. The rental was very clean and met our needs for this trip. We knew we would not be spending much time in the rental. Rental sleeps 6 although there is only meal time seating for 4. Street noise was too loud, the construction noise woke us up at 6 am every morning. Construction parking was very inconvenient. Property management could have warned us and given us advanced notice of alternative parking. The response we received was ... you'll have to move your car during the construction times could have been handled better. The daily "we need to move the car and where to ?" was annoying.
Anonymous March 17, 2014
The Roseclair was clean and well stocked with the basic supplies( lots of towels) that we needed for our vacation. It was in a great location for accessing the bus and subway line to all venues we had planned on seeing. The 7 day transit pass was very economical and I would highly recommend the Boston City pass to anyone planning on visiting the museums and aquarium.
I would recommend staying here to any family planning a trip to Boston!
Plan on a visit to Mike's Pastry!

We were in Boston for a 5 day conference and were shocked with the cost of hotels. The apartment we rented was 30mins travel from the conference near the World Trade Centre and saved us a small fortune. The guys from Swank were really quick in getting the booking sorted. Apartment was large, clean and well equipped. Only problem was the really busy road outside. Otherwise I'd highly recommend.
Anonymous April 20, 2014
The apartment is spotless clean, very good quality linens, bath towels and all kitchen amenities. The 3 bedrooms are large enought for 6 persons - not the same for the kitchen/dining space: only a small round Glass talble and only 4 seats - we were 5! A little bit "tricky" the 2 codes entrance keys system. The property management was promptly answering, very professional, collaborative and frienly.

Not enough chairs for 5 people in the appartment !
À little bit noisy because of low window protection.

We had a great time ... The rental unit was convenient, clean and well appointed. We enjoyed a couple of the dining establishments in the immediate area - next door and in the Polish community. A good time had by all.
