For the price, this extremely well-located boutique hotel stands out in a class of its own. This is the third time I have stayed there and it continues to be clean, reliable and good value. Especially in the Boston winter, being just steps from the T makes this an excellent choice for business and leisure travelers alike.

This is my third stay here. Right balance of location and price, but you have to be willing to give up some things. The rooms are very small, there's little to no space for your clothes with a very small place for hanging short clothes (no dresses) and no dresser to speak of. The room is nice and clean, as...

Small hotel, small room, absurd price but good location. Really loud we could here everyone and were originally put in a room right behind the bar where we had to walk through the club/lounge to get to our room. Had to ask to be moved and then moved to a room facing a ghetto alley, for $120 it wasn't worth... More

The hotel room is small but packed with stuff which you might find handy during a stay. The location is ideal and the backbay express bus from the airport stops right across the street. The staff is very friendly and breakfast options are plenty. The shower has got great pressure and the bathroom has good quality toiletries. The only negative... More

A very comfortable, clean room, with a lovely bathroom. Complimentary magazines (that are actually worth reading) and lollipops. 3 newspapers available daily in the lounge. Best of all, very pleasant and obliging staff. Once I brought back a pizza and was allowed to use the microwave oven to heat it up. This budget hotel may be small, but offers a... 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
