Great little boutique hotel - modern design, super clean, and amazing staff. Great location within walking distance of North End restaurants and around the corner subway access. The rooms are very small (similar to NYC hotels), but very comfortable and bright. Highly recommended

Breakfast very good, they where out of a breakfast item we ordered manager sent out for it so we could have it for breakfast . Never have seen such outstanding service. Looking forward to our next stay at the Boxer.

Loved this hotel! Conveniently located- walking distance to restaurants, bars, sites. Rooms made us feel at home. We stayed in the bunk room. I was not expecting it to be so comfortable. Took me back to my college dorm days. Toiletries were awesome. Clean. Quiet. Just perfect!

We stayed at the Boxer for a long weekend and we were absolutely thrilled with the first class service. They could not do enough for you. Our air conditioning unit was on the fritz so they upgraded us to a suite with no extra charge. The kitchen was closed when we came back late one evening but in their Can-do... More

We enjoyed a lovely 2 nights in The Boxer hotel in Boston. Location is very central. The hotel itself is clean, quirky and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. If I ever return to Boston I would stay here again.

Ok, lets start with the basics. The rooms are very very small. I mean tiny. If you are coming from interstate as a single traveller with one overnight bag staying for one night it might be ok. If you are a couple travelling from overseas with suitcases then don't even consider this place. You will not be comfortable. Secondly, we... More

The Boxer is a nice hotel if you are visiting Boston, especially Boston's north end. For me, this hotel was just fine, but I found it quite expensive for what you get. The Boxer is part of a new generation of hotels that call themselves "green", and look, to my eyes, like renovated chain hotels. Apparently this means you do... More

Thank you for your review. The hotel's rooms have some unique touches that were designed to maximize the amount of useable space in our historic building. I am sorry to hear that the size of the rooms was not to your liking but that you enjoyed the location. We hope to see you again soon. Warm regards, Justin More

Beautiful boutique hotel, with amazing staff, very clean, the service is impeccable. Fred, just like all the staff, is so helpful! The location is close to the down town, beacon hill, North End and Quincy market. Two T stations are located nearby which makes the transportation to and from the Hotel very easy. Lovely hotel!

The Boxer Hotel is newly renovated and it definitely shows. The room had a very industrial and quaint feel to it. Location was central to TD garden and other tourist spots. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My only complaint was the bedsheets were thin and in the middle of the night it got really cold. But other than... More
