We stayed 9 nights which set us back 2800$ - not exactly a budget stay, so we had certain expectations. We did like the great location, the charming building and our room a lot. It was like having a cozy home away from home since we were given the keys and could come and go as we pleased without passing... More

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.

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
