It may be cliché to say "it is what it is" but the BHHB is what it is. It is a small "casual chic" establishment in a very old building on a very historic street. It is not a 5 star, newly built luxury hotel. The rooms are small as you would expect from an old building. You get a... More

Once upon a time, in our twenties, we lived in a crumbling (but charming!) brownstone up the hill. The Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro represented for us a luxury we thought we might never afford. Fast-forward nearly a decade on a brief return trip to Boston: where else would we stay? Located right on Charles Street in Beacon Hill, you’re... More

My husband and I ate at this adorable little bistro for a Sunday brunch two years ago. The restaurant looks fantastic inside and out, and the menu had great looking options. However, our service was horrid. Our server was disinterested bordering on rude. It was packed, and we sort of dismissed our poor experience due to how busy they were.... More

Great location to explore historic Boston from. Lovely boutique hotel on a trendy street, a little quirky but that made it all the better. We stayed a week, found the staff helpful and our room was well appointed with plenty of space. We really liked the roof top terrace to relax on or plan the day ahead. The breakfast was... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and enjoyed not only the lovely and very tastefully appointed rooms but also the excellent food. We arrived around lunchtime in pouring rain and were happy to have an excellent lunch at their Bistro. The next morning's cooked to perfection breakfast was a joy . Service was excellent and unlike other visitors we... More

Lovely Bistro, ambiance and location are great. We were greeted by 2 excellent members of staff, however our server was disinterested and did not even introduce himself. Food was however excellent with a great and varied menu, something for everyone. We tried the cod, the steak special and the salmon. May try it again but would avoid the same server.

this hotel has the worst hotel of the 500 plus hotels around the world i have stayed in. 98% of the time the wifi does not work at all. a staggering situation for what otherwise is a generally good hotel.

We stayed four nights at the Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro. The staff were warm and welcoming, after a 30 hour journey from Brisbane to Boston, we were shown to our room and then went to dinner at the Bistro. The food and service was excellent and the long journey quickly receded in our memories. The warmth and friendliness of... More

Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro is a small hotel in a charming neighborhood which offers a good breakfast menu and an interesting take on lodging. We visit Boston a few times each year and during our most recent stay we decided to try out Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro instead of our typical hotels in Cambridge. While we loved the... More
