The location is great - a typical old-style brick residence in Back Bay, close to Newbury and Boylston Street shops and restaurants as well as supermarkets, easy walking to a few green MBTA stops in Back Bay... a great place also to walk to the Boston Public Garden and Boston Common. There was free wifi and cable TV. The staff:... More

We were staying a really great hotel, but needed another night, so we decided to go online for one closer to Downtown Boston so we could be ready for an early flight out. The place was advertised online as "comfortable, fashionable rooms, with private kitchens and baths. It showed in a slideshow rooms with a sitting area, couch and beds,... More

Slow wifi, unhelpful staff, room with a bad odour, noisy guests outside the room on a couple of nights. Not a place I'll be returning to anytime soon. The only plus to the venuie is it's excellent location.

Staff are very helpful arriving, during and leaving. Nice looking old building with matching rooms that have all you need but no kettle, only one spoon, two cups and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights, but had to extend for one extra day due to the storm Boston got hit with recently, but we didn't mind the extra day of vacation :) Located on beautiful Commonwealth Avenue - great walk, especially at night- trees are lighten up looks magical. This is a limited service hotel. The rooms are very... More

We spent two nights here. The house is a beautiful old building. We were on the top floor up four flights of stairs which didn't bother us. The Internet didn't work in our room and no one was able to fix it so we had to use it in the lobby. Basic no frills room in a beautiful suburb with... More

I have to say that, after reading some comments, I really feared what I was going to find. I was supposed to share a room with a friend and she didn't come. Lucky me because it wasn't a twin bed but a queen size bed...way too small for two but fine for one. The room was large and comfortable except... More

The room is clean and in some way comfortable if u dont expect luxury. The wifi didnt work well, and there is 24 hours recepcionist, the negative... More
