Home away from home in Boston
Near as I can tell, we got the rate we did on this because we were staying on off-peak nights, because it felt like we got a lot for our money. Basically, this was a 2-level, 2-bedroom apartment that felt like home away from home. If I was an extended-stay traveler, this is exactly what I'd want, including a full kitchen and laundry, which actually came in useful after a mishaps while we were in the city. The location is easily accessible to a lot of the prime attractions in the city, just a couple minutes walk from several theaters and a healthy hike from attractions like the New England Aquarium. There is a Dunkin Donuts right downstairs, Walgreens across the street and a bunch of restaurants within a block or two. If you need parking, Sonder will recommend a lot. That one was full, but we found a fine garage on Beach Street and reserved a space using the ParkWhiz app. Our only quibbles would be (A) the AC is really loud, like I had to turn up the TV loud, and (B) the spiral staircase looks cool, but feels a bit rickety. But those are quibbles. Going back to Boston, we will definitely look at Sonder properties again.

”Artsy Studio” in photos only
I would never stay at another Sonder location. The rooms that I stayed in when I visited Boston had not been taken care of and the buildings where they are located were falling apart (moldy, smelly, inaccessible). The cleanliness was also lacking inside the units. The website boasts luxe hotel alternative and besides some of the design elements, there is nothing luxe about it. It looks appealing in photos and again, lovely to look at on the website. But the reality once you are inside is shocking by comparison. Maintenance is what is mostly lacking and clarity around the Check-In process including building information. At my second unit I had to carry my bags up three flights of stairs. I also found hair in the bed, which was gross. Clearly not using the necessary tools to keep the unity clean.

Super easy, Super clean, a bit noisy
It is SO easy to use Sonder. They send you the code to get into the building, and to get into the apartment. There are tons of towels, soap, shampoo, coffee. The place is super clean. The only negative is that it's a bit noisy. I've stayed in 2 apartments on floor 2 and they were extremely loud - outside noise, but especially the noise of people walking, talking and of toilets flushing and showers in surrounding apartments. This apartment on the 3rd floor was much quieter. I wore earplugs and was not disturbed. I don't know if they have added something like noise cancelling floors to the whole building or if is just the 3rd floor apartment, but it was much better this stay than when I was there in August. I'll definitely continue to use Sonder.

Great location, great price, needs soundproofing
The location was pretty perfect! 1 block of Boston Commons, right next door to the orange line. Easy walk to almost anywhere we wanted to go. It felt safe walking at night, although if I was traveling alone I would just take a lyft. Its a secure building. The ONLY downside. This building has almost no soundproofing between floors. We could hear every step the people above us took and one night they had company and we could have participated in the conversation. We texted the Sonders team and they dealt with the sound complaints. I used a sound machine app on my phone which helped, but if you are a light sleeper, this may not be a great fit. The apartment itself was really great! Loved having the kitchen for breakfast and the living room for the evenings. We would stay here again.

Comfortable apartment in Chinatown
I have the option to book the Royal Sonesta full service hotel in Cambridge and get it expensed by my company, but I chose this apartment in Chinatown and will do so again. Since I was staying for a week and working in our Cambridge office, I wanted a place that seemed like home and staying here did that. I got to come 'home' every evening to my kitchen and living room. There's something psychologically calming about coming home to the mess you left behind in the morning. It's just normal. The flat is warm and comfortable with everything you need. I got groceries at Roche Bros on Summer just past Macy's (north on Washington) for groceries. They even had PG Tips - a welcome sight for anyone British! The restaurants in Chinatown are many - I went to Shojo and Tora, which were excellent. Some nights I just had soup I bought at Roche Bros. The shopping is excellent. I needed to go to work on Cambridge Parkway, so I took Green to Park then switched to Red 2 stops to Kendall/MIT. Enjoy!
