I have never imagined such a good place to stay in Boston! Yun's place is so beautiful, so clean, and so comfortable, that I want to live there for a much longer time than the scheduled two's day vacation. It is in a quite neighborhood super close to the Harvard Business school. Yun and Allan are super warmhearted and super cute couple. Yun made delicious porridge 'Babaozhou' for us! It has been two months since my stay there, and I still miss the porridge. I keep thinking about my experience in Yun's place, and rate that as one of my luckiest thing among my many vacations in the past years. The bedroom is so sweet, so quite, and so clean. Same feeling for the bathroom, I enjoyed everything there, and it felt more convenient than many 4 start hotels that I have stayed. I love Yun's place, I lovvvvvvveeeeeee it! Xi

Yun's place is a very nice and quiet place to stay in walking distance to Harvard University. The rooms are nicely furnished and very clean. You have to share the bathroom, which is no problem if you travel with friends and shouldn't be a problem otherwise as well. You make your own breakfast using the kitchen where there is all you need. In the evenings we enjoyed sitting on the porch for a little chat and nightcap. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and you might even get a litte Pipa concert as Yun is a great Pipa player! We enjoyed our stay there very much and would highly recommend the place for a relaxed stay.

Yun and Alan are excellent hosts. They have helped us in any way. We stayed in Yun's Place for one week. The rooms are nice and clean. The beds are really good to sleep in. The bathroom is also nice and clean. The breakfeast is very good. The place is very quiet and not far away from busstop, the Harvard T-Station, the Charles river (which offers good possibilities for a run in the morning). We liked it very much and we can highly recommend this place for staying in Boston. We hope to come again to Boston and then we will ask again to stay here.

Yun and Alan are helpful in every way--where to eat, directions, etc. Excellent communicators. The house was so tidy and nicely appointed. The neighborhood was quiet and the walk to the subway a pleasant turn through part of Harvard campus. We left as friends and would stay again in a heartbeat. Bonus: Yun plays a pipa expertly and made for a lovely accent to one of the mornings.

This was our first time in Boston and first time staying at a B&B. Yun and Alan were fantastic. They were super nice, and they left us alone to do our own thing. The street and house were so quiet. We got great sleep. We had to share a bathroom, but had no issues with that. The walk to the T was about 20 minutes so that was the only downside. We hope to stay there in the future if we go back! Oh, and you won't find anything cheaper.

OMG, Yun & Alan are GREAT! They run a very nice place that I looked forward to spending time at after a day of sight seeing. I will not stay anywhere else from now on. It;s like a home away from home with family. Thank you for the great visit, stories and your company!

The Best B&B, A Home Away from Home My 11-yr old son and I stayed at Yun's Place in in later June for two weeks. Yun and Alan were extremely welcoming and nice to us. and help us to get around Boston. They offered their bicycles to us which made our life there so easy and pleasant. Because my son went to a summer camp daily and there's no public transportation directly to the camp site. The 20-25 min round-trip bike-riding solved the issue. The room and bathroom were very clean, and the bed was comfy. The breakfast consisted of whatever you like (cereals, bread, croissant, oatmeal, muffins) and Yun always had some cold water bottles for us everyday. Yun is very nice and always there to help. She took care my boy with love like his own grandma. They were very charming hosts. I also found the location to be ideal. A 20-25 min walking distance to Harvard, Boston University. I also felt that it was a very safe neighborhood. Yun's Place is the best place we could have stayed at. It's such a lovely and warm place. The owners, Alan and Yun, are great people. They were always so hospitable and considerate with us. By the end of our stay, We really didn't want to leave. It was so sad to say goodbye to Yun. She became such a dear friend to us. Yun's Place is truly a home away from home.
