Staying at the 1898 Fire House was like spending a long weekend in a Victorian family home. The exterior is certainly a museum-quality fire station renovation, but the interior is a cozy hardwood-floored apartment with towering ceilings, fascinating angles, marvelous rugs, and a friendly, eclectic mix of furnishings. The apartment is located in a quietly diverse and cosmopolitan middle-to-upper-middle class neighborhood, and we walked to and from our destinations both night and day. The bus is right at the corner, the subway is close, and Ubers are plentiful. Excellent dining is available a half mile away in downtown Malden, and world-class cuisine and culture are just a few minutes further away in downtown Boston. Our only caution is that the stairs are very steep for mobility-restricted individuals. I had both a sprained ankle and a sprained knee for my visit, and the transits up and down stairs to and from the two bedrooms were challenging. A young or middle-aged adult of average fitness would have no trouble with the staircase. We were delayed hours in our trip to Boston, and our host stayed up late just to greet us in person after midnight. That kindness was representative of the hospitality we enjoyed through our whole visit. Staying in the 1898 Fire House is akin to fun and adventure, unusually so for an excellent value in lodging. For those not challenged by the stairs, this is a must-visit place for those traveling to Boston. - William
Awesome location. Great host. Large and in charge-Plenty of space and a great value. We will be back. Book it if you can, but I cant imagine this will be available much. - Joshua
My family and I stayed here for my graduation weekend. The firehouse was a lovely, unique, aesthetically inviting home away from home. between the futon, couch, and two beds, the four of us had lots of space and the location offered many walking-distance yummy dining options. The drive to Boston took 20 minutes with light traffic, and the T-station was a short walk away. To our warm, eco-friendly host: Thanks for the memories and sharing your creative Fire House project! - Jay
We had a wonderful stay! Loved everything about this place from the unique design to the convenient location and of course our gracious and accommodating hosts. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful vacation spot in the Boston area. - Kandl
