Staff so very friendly and helpful, free coffee and continental breakfast available all day. Great atmosphere and right on site for travelling on the T. Rooms cosy, comfy beds lovely bathroom. Stay! Locals seem to like drinking cocktails here and Thai type food is served.

My husband and I last minute decided to stay in the city for a friend's reception. We stumbled upon this hotel because we were searching high and low for something for less than 250 a night. It is definitely a European style hotel, as it states, but has a great atmosphere and a wonderful front desk. We were a little... More

We stayed here while on town for a Red Sox game. Fenway is about 20 minute walk. Hotel one street over from Newbury Street shopping and a short walk to Boston Common. The rooms are small but modern decor and unexpectedly awesome sound system in room and bathroom. The bar is nice and they had the doors open to a... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It has it's pros and cons. The hotel is located right in the heart of the Back Bay - opposite Copley Square, 1 block back from Newberry Street, 10 minute walk to Fenway Park and Boston Common. There is a T station right across the street which can take you pretty much anywhere.... More

If you want to be in the city you will bel right in the heart of it. There are lots of restaurants and shopping opportunities nearby. The biggest advantage is that there is a T stop right across the street and it will get you anywhere. The hotel is very reasonably priced considering location and the fact that breakfast and... More

We found the Charlesmark in our AAA book as a last minute find...we lucked out! The funky atmosphere, pleasant and helpful staff, and perfect location was just right for my troupe. Our small - but sufficient - room was just right to crash after a long day of site-seeing. The location could not have been better, either! I will stay... More

Stayed for 4 days whilst exploring all Boston had to offer! Very very comfortable beds and the rooms nicely decorated. Only ate the continental breakfast once as too many other places to eat at but was good for what we needed that day- bagel with cream cheese, piece of fruit and cup of coffee. The bar and food menu looked... More

This hotel is in a really nice location and it's easy to walk many places in Boston from here, whether you want to go shopping or sightsee. It's a smaller, boutique style hotel and though the rooms aren't very large, they have everything you need and are comfortable. The front desk staff are friendly, and it's reasonably priced. I would... More
