My daughter brought us to Charles Street for breakfast on Sunday morning in January at the legendary Paramount, but we found their legendary line out the door and didn't have 45 minutes to wait. Disappointed, we walked back to our car and passed The Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro (aka BHB). We looked at the menu and they had both... More

I booked this hotel because of its proximity to a friend's place, but it exceeded every expectation. At the foot of, but not on, Beacon Hill, it's easily accessible to the metro, and just down the block from Boston Common. The rooms are on the small side, European-style, but are extremely comfortable. The staff is just great, notwithstanding that when... More

Stayed for a week in this lovely small hotel. The location is perfect, on the most attractive street (Charles st.) of a beautiful neighborhood, and touching the Boston Common park. The room was cozy and convenient, and the staff friendly and very helpful. Breakfasts at the bistro downstairs were also great. I heartily recommend this place!

This could be a great hotel: brilliant location; clean and comfy; well-appointed; polite, efficient and friendly staff; in fact, virtually everything you could reasonably ask for on a transatlantic city break. BUT, OH THE NOISE! We stayed for five nights and on the first morning around 4.30am were awakened by the most almighty racket right outside our window (we were... More

A lovely little boutique hotel in a great location. One block from the Common and right in the heart of Charles Street. The rooms are small but well appointed. The staff is wonderful -- helpful and friendly. A delightful restaurant/bar scene on the first floor.

Great location for visiting or work at statehouse on Beacon Hill, but way overpriced. Rooms were clean and comfortable, but not worth the price. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant was very good.

Came here for brunch because the line was so long at the paramount across the street. Seating process was a little disorganized, but once seated service was quick and food was great. I got the sunny side eggs which was good, my girlfriend got the eggs Benedict, which was better. Skip the paramount and come here!

Small, cozy room, well appointed with attention to offering amenities in a small space. Appreciated the convenience of the down stairs bistro. Fabulous breakfast.Very good wine list. Worked well for a solo business traveler. Very convenient to public transportation. A few more square feet would rate an additional star.

This gem of a place is all about charm and location. It is my second time around here and all rooms have been updated. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. The staff is friendly whether you are in the Bistro or the Bar. The food is quite tasty and is not from a few cookie cutter menu. The wine... More

Just stayed here for one night but quite impressed. Perfect location for following the freedom trail. Boston Common and Public gardens. The rooms are small but well appointed and spotless. The included breakfast was delicious and lots to choose from menu. Would highly recommend

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
