"A very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Royal Street Studio. In a quiet, residential area, the studio is only a short walk to Harvard Square and Allston village either side. It is clean, comfortable and well-equipped, and it is reassuring to know that Richard is always on hand to help if any problems or queries arise."

"Richard and Victoria were the best hosts. The studio was immaculate and exactly as promised. The information package helped prepare us for the stay. A lovely  neighbourhood - close to the metro and other great stores and restaurants. If not for the alarm clock we could have spent the entire day in bed (it was so comfortable!!!). The kitchen was more than well equipped especially for someone who used to be a chef. Thank you again for a wonderful vacation. We'll recommend this place to friends and if we ever return to Boston will stay."

"Extremely professional! When we arrived, my boyfriend and I were very pleased
with the cozy and comfortable studio apartment, that looked and felt newly renovated.

We were especially delighted with the thoughtful amenities that Richard left in our
rooms (including shampoo/soap, which we had forgotten to bring along, and the
bread, butter, cereal, hot chocolate and other goodies in the kitchen).

If you're visiting Boston and want to feel like you're living here rather than being
another a tourist staying at a hotel, this is the place to come!

"I have stayed at the Studio apartment from 27th May until 2nd June 2011.
It was a very good experience for me and my wife. The hosts Richard and
Victoria were extremely helpful and courteous to us during our stay there.
I would return to stay in this apartment whenever  I visit Boston in the
future. The place is very clean and the location is superb for tourists."

"The place was perfectly clean and pleasant. All seems to be brand new and well organized. It has been a real pleasure to stay in that studio and really useful to get to the Harvard campus by walk or bus. The hosts have been very helpful and available at every moment. I'll highly recommend this place for a week or more."

"The studio is very compact yet complete -  immaculate and well appointed.  We especially appreciated the fresh flowers and "starter" kit of necessities and food.  The location is ideal: we walked to a large grocery store, bank, library, bus and trolley lines, many restaurants, Harvard and Central Squares.  The hosts, Richard and Victoria, are very accommodating and generous.  We definitely plan to go back."

Review of Stay June - July 2011

"My husband and I stayed in the studio for a week at the end of July 2011.  Richard and Victoria were exceptional hosts, very attentive and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed.  Thank you for the gifts of food, wine, beer.  Correspondence for booking was prompt and professional (good communication skills).  The studio was comfortable, very clean and well equipped.  The location was great, easy to walk to subway and many restaurants nearby to choose from.  We were a little concerned that it would be noisy because of the proximity to the highway, but it is quiet and  you don't hear it from their house.  All in all, it was better than I expected.  We would definitely go back there again."

"We had a great stay at the studio. I highly recommend it. Within 10 minute walk of the T-lines. Did not need a car. Visited 4 universities. Per Richard's recommendation, We ate at Le's Vietnamese restaurant. Great food. Alfredo's has a great Italian food. We will go back when we visit Boston again."

"Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The Studio is super clean, has all the necessary amenities, and has a beautiful back garden, where we enjoyed having meals outside. The hosts, Richard and Victoria were very welcoming and kind, helped us to carry our heavy baggage up and down stairs.

We are very grateful. We hope we can come back in the future and we would recommend everybody to stay here!"

"We found the studio to be compact and very comfortable - the bed was exceptional. It was a pleasure to find everything as described on the website. All equipment, utensils etc were available and everything spotlessly clean. Victoria and Richard were wonderful hosts and ready to answer any queries. The information booklet provided a helpful run down of the area. We would definitely recommend a stay at the studio."

"This Studio has to be in our top 5 vacation stays we have had.

The neighborhood was comfortable to walk both day and night with many beautiful well kept yards, still within easy accessibility to all of Boston and its surrounds. The Studio, a 3rd floor walkup was even more comfortable than the neighborhood, everything someone would need for either a short or long term stay.

Victoria and Richard are the epitome of hostess and host, like that perfect waiter who doesn't hover, yet is always there for the smallest of needs! We will definitely be repeat guests when back in Boston, if this little gem is not booked."
