We booked the 463 Beacon on the recommendation of the Rough Guide to New England and spent four nights there. The hotel is cheap for Boston and in a nice area, but you do get what you pay for to some extent. We stayed on the second floor and our room was likely half of what would have been a... More

My wife and myself booked this B&B largely on the recommendation of the “Rough Guide” for USA 2007 (similar to GO in the U.S.). Our stay was in August 2008 for four days. We’d expected good things as the “Rough Guide” is usually spot on but I’m giving a mixed review here. The décor of the room we’re in was... More

My son (16) and I stayed three days in room 50. It has a double bed (good luck sharing), but we did okay with that. It is on the 5th floor, no elevator, but if you're in decent shape its worth it. Why? Because its got a private bathroom and a private balcony! looking over the street and across the... More

I recently spent four nights at 463 Beacon St. and found it to be a great option for a single gal on a budget! The guesthouse is in a lovely brownstone on a tree lined street. I stayed in room #33 (which was described to me as a "very small room") which had a private bathroom. The public areas were... More

We stayed at 463 Beacon Guest house for 4 nights in October. After reading the reviews i had mixed feeling, i booked the hotel anyway, as it was alot cheaper than others in the area. For the money i paid i got what i expected, the hotel is close to attractions, restaurants and shops, its also on about $20 taxi... More

Fascinated by the vastly differing accounts - had to see for myself. Tried to book over the internet but they ignored all correspondence. The place is not good. If you get a cheap rate then it's about OK but that's about it; about average hostel standard. Climbing stairs with a heavy suitcase is probably good exercise! Not sure whether the... More

I found this place while looking for a Bed & Breakfast in Boston. Well, it is definitely not that. If you find links to it from B&B websites, please report it as incorrect. There is no breakfast, only 1 pot of coffee per day. While the location was fine for what we went to Boston for - a Red Sox... More

We are a budget establishment and offer the lowest prices in Boston’s Back Bay, but we certainly make every effort to provide a clean and comfortable environment. Unfortunately there are times some things ‘slip by’, and for that we apologize. However, our staff is available to correct any faults during our guests’ stays – we hire the best help we... More

Two couples stayed at this guest house for a very moderate rate. We had rooms next door to each other on the 5th floor of this lovely place on a quiet residential street. Close to local (Back Bay) happenings and a short walk to the T station gets you around the entire city. We were lucky to get a guest... More

We rent 2 rooms in July. The guest house is nice, very close to Newbury Street, no elevators but we found one room with dirty and used bedlinen. Because the service during the night (10 p.m.) is very poor we had many problems to obtain clean linen. So, if you would stay at 463 check the room before paying!
