We stayed in this guesthouse as a last minute booking as our previous hotel was a let down. The room was small but perfect for 5 nights. Double bed with extra blankets was extremely comfortable, kitchenette was useful although would have appreciated a tea towel to dry things. Our private bathroom was clean as well as complimentary toiletries, hairdryer and... More

We were delighted with this property! We had emailed a late arrival and were given the pass-code and found our keys in the mailbox, just as promised. Our room was on the bottom level, absolutely charming, clean and well kept. This guest house is located just blocks from the train station and only two blocks from the subway. It is... More

I booked a room for 5 days, and then wanted to alter my reservation. I had misunderstood their policy for booking. After a couple of emails with the guest house they wrote me the following reply: "I do not understand. What are you talking about rebooking the room? You clearly don't want to stay here! Just cancel the reservation. This... More

Twin Room: Both beds were of average size and comfort with a decent size bathroom and suitable kitchen area. However, no curtains. Blinds had little effect with sun coming through very early in the morning. Good location to both downtown and Back Bay Area. Main concern: Upon checkout we asked receptionist (American Gentleman) if we could leave our suitcases within... More

Attending a conference at the Hynes Convention Center, I was looking for an alternative to the Back Bay hotels. Found a great deal on Booking.com for Commonwealth Court Guest House, which is a converted brownstone. Awesome location just off of Newbury and 2 blocks from the Hynes. The Good: Very nice room with 12-foot ceilings, architectural details, and a large... More

I paid less than $100 a night to stay here, and was really impressed. The staff were welcoming, and the room was lovely. It's an old converted Boston townhouse which means it has a great feel. Also, I had a little hob, fridge, and microwave in the room which meant I could eat in and save money. The only downside... More

I have been in Boston for 7 days for a conference, all hotels were fully booked or with ridiculous prices, so I had to choose this one. I took a double room, 200 $ per night, still too much for what they offered. Bed was comfortable, bathroom incredibly small, especially taking into account the room was around 40 m2. One... More

This was our first trip to Boston, and we could not have picked a better hotel. The location is ideal - you can even walk to the Museum of Fine Arts. Our room was fairly basic, but it was clean, and the kitchenette was useful. The staff were really outstanding, and could not have been more helpful.

We selected this hotel based on the excellent tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We arrived quite early, before 11am. We planned to valet the car and leave bags but the Bellman (all were awesome) suggested we go check on room. Well, it was ready. We refereshed, the bellman brought bags, and we went down to enjoy the city. Again,... More
