Stayed here for one night this week and was very happy with the hotel. Love the neighborhood with the shops and restaurants all along the street. Honored my request to have a room facing away from the street;therefore it was quiet. Very good 3 star hotel and breakfast was good. Only complaints are the non-refundable aspect of the price, internet... More

The staff at the hotel were very helpful and were very nice to allow us to change rooms after we found out the one we had was overlooking the very busy street. The breakfast was fine but after taking a look we opted to go down the street for different options. The location is everything others have described, very central... More

I would like to give this place a 5-rating but there were a couple of things lacking. We stayed for six nights and breakfast is included, however it is all the exactly the same food every day. I guess if you are there for a couple nights it's no big deal, but we were there for a business trip and... More

Whenever we go to Boston, we always stay at the Newbury Guest House. A great location, hearty breakfast and very helpful staff. Best of all, our favorite French restaurant, La Voile, is in the basement!

Stayed here during a one week holiday in Boston and really enjoyed it. The room was spacious , the breakfast great, the staff extremely helpful and the location perfect. I would recommend anyone going to Boston to stay at the Newbury Guest House.

We arrived rather stressed by delays because of the adverse weather conditions and the staff were helpful in phoning around to find a restaurant which was still open despite the snow . we had two early flights out and on both occasions the staff had taken the trouble to prepare fresh coffee even at 5 am and arranging our cabs...

We were visiting Boston with our high school senior for a college audition and wanted to stay someplace that was walking distance to the T, Boston University, and Symphony Hall. I was also looking for a place that would give our son a favorable impression of Boston since he had never visited before. Found the Newbury Guest House on Trip... More

We stayed three nights in December between blizzards. Our room overlooked Newbury Street and it was a joy to look out onto the beautiful snow-covered streets. The guest house was close to everything; either walking or a subway ride. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Our room was cozy and spacious, and the bed was exceedingly comfortable. A most pleasant... More

My wife and I checked in at the Newbury Guest House on January 2, 2014 for two days. Boston was hit with the Nor'easter Hercules that day, so our stay was frigid, white, and wintry. The city was pretty much closed down, but the Newbury Guest House is close to everything in the Back Bay area -- restaurants, shops, and... More
