We got to the hotel 3 hours before check in and they were able to have the room ready for us in about a 1/2 hour. While we waited they suggested we have something to eat at the small attached restaurant which worked out beautifully. The room was small but very comfortable and clean. We really loved the area which... More

This is a very quiet, clean, friendly little hotel in the very heart of the Newbury Street brownstone district of trendy shops, restaurants, bars, bookstores, etc., with a T stop nearby in case you want to go farther afield. The location could not be better. The room was very comfortable and well equipped. It's a nightmare to find parking on... More

This is a very quiet and beautiful hotel in a wonderful location. Newbury street is just blocks form the T, shopping and some of the best restaurants in Boston. The hotel staff is more than accommodating. The AC in our room was not working and they immediately moved us. The breakfast were free and very basic but good. We would... More

My husband and I stayed there for two nights, and it was one if the nicest lodging experiences I have ever had! We had a room on the second floor overlooking Newbury Street, and it was a beautiful scene and quiet! Everything in our room was clean and worked properly. It was a great home away from home!

After reading the reviews on trip advisor we decided to stay at this boutique hotel and we are very happy with our choice for three nights in Boston . Very cute, clean with charming staff. Small but perfect for a couple. It was a warm weekend and the air conditioning was working fine. The French restaurant downstairs was very good... More

Newbury Guest House is a good value for its Back Bay location, a vibrant Boston neighborhood. We stayed 3 nights over Memorial Day Weekend on the third floor in the rear of the building, away from the stairs and elevator. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Not a large space, but fine for our stay. Staff were friendly. Christinana... More

This hotel was great for our 3 days in Boston. Excellent location, fun atmosphere, and breakfast included! Rooms are updated and very nice. Walk out the front and you can go everywhere. We loved it great food everywhere. Cute deli on the corner and a good wine shop close by.

Room was a little small but perfect for just a couple of days for just 2 people. We did not sleep very well due to the noise and therefore, would not go back. There was some noise outside, but it was mostly inside. The flooring and elevator system creaks, LOUDLY, and goes right through the floors and door. Anytime someone... More

We stayed at the guest house in the middle of the week for 1 night and honestly that was enough. The front desk staff was very nice and the property is beautiful but the beds were hard as a rock and we made the mistake of staying in a double facing the alley. The trash trucks came to empty the... More
