3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for 2 nights as i rented out my own apartment on airbnb for 2 weeks and needed somewhere basic and clean to stay for a short stay. Pros +Location (it really couldnt be better located). you are in the same area as the Fairmont, Westin but the price is less than a quarter of what they'll charge... More

Small, boutique hotel in a perfect location. It offers rooms smaller than a typical American chain hotel. Therefore, each room has just one bed (twin-size). Otherwise, the hotel is excellent. The staff was friendly. Rooms were clean and cozy. Nice cocktail bar on the ground floor and just perfect location.

We stayed here for 3 nights in November. Our room was pretty small, but had a fridge, stereo and tv (no safe). The bed was small, as in maybe a queen - too small for an average sized couple but reasonably comfortable.The windows both faced out into an alleyway, with a view of a brick wall maybe 1m away. This... More

It was a comedy of errors this past June. I was supposed to check in around 10:30 p.m., but an overturned semi on 90 made it impossible to get to Boston until midnight. The front desk first directed me to the closest parking lot, but it was closed, so the attendant told me to go park five blocks away. He... More

I spent one night at the Charlesmark Hotel in Boston. If you are looking for the Four Seasons, this is not for you. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, clean, funky hotel in a great location--this is it. The room was very small, but fantastically clean and well appointed. The room that I had was on the second... More

Our stay was excellent, like I said great location, near downtown, subways across the street not far from any attractions. The hotel itself was accommodating, very friendly and helpful staff. The room was clean and warm, and quiet. Would come back, and probably will, again. So if you want to be near the Boston Public Library, or the Prudential Building,... More

This was the perfect little hotel for us! Close to the Hynes Convention Center, close to the T, close to shopping on Newbury St, I think you get the picture. We were here for two nights, and the front desk staff we encountered were genuinely nice and helpful. Rooms are small, but much attention was paid to making the best... More

We loved staying at the Charlesmark. Could not be more convenient location, right at Copley Square and near Newberry Street shops. Our room was compact but well-equipped and comfortable. We had a great view of the Boston Public Library, the Pru, and the Hancock, with the finish line of the marathon just beneath our window. Bar was fun too and... More

We met a couple in a restaurant in Sandwich, Cape Cod, who suggested this hotel, and said that they said all their clients and friends there because of the location, the price, and how nice it is. It was SPOT ON!!! Perfect for us, as we had three days in Boston, and really did not plan to spend lots of... More
