we stayed 3 nights there and liked the friendly staff, the location and charm of the hotel. the room was very small though and does not give you space to unpack your suit case or hang some stuff to dry - all is very tight and in a small space

I've never had a worse customer experience at a hotel and cannot recommend this hotel to anyone. Booked a King size bed for a quick getaway in town. Arrived at 3:45 to check in and our room wasn't ready. Called later to tell them we would have a late check in. When we came back later in the night our... More

A great little hotel, very hip feel to it, but the location is quite far removed from downtown Boston. I also thought the $44 parking charge was a bit steep, especially given the neighborhood. The restaurant was great and the staff very friendly.

We stayed overnight before travelling to Provincetown. The hotel was ideally suited for connecting ferry and Long Wharf and close for amenities. The staff were excellent as was the room. This is a lovy urban boutique hotel which I would recommend but I'd suggest eating elsewhere as I thought the menu was limited. Also, the dining room is only open... More

The previous day I stayed in New York and left an awful review for the Pennsylvania hotel, What a great chance to be impressed by the Boxer, which is everything the Penn is not. Smart, clean and well looked after with very helpfull staff for only £20 a night more, will definately stay here again on my next visit.

The hotel room was very comfortable. The staff was amazing and very accommodating. Location is close to waterfront, north end, and Faneuil Hall. We had a delicious breakfast in the hotel that was very reasonable as well.

Needed a hotel room for a quick getaway for my husbands 45th birthday. Enjoyed everything about this hotel, convenient location, sophisticated furnishings, comfortable bed and great hotel staff. Only one issue that would make this an excellent rating is the air conditioner was a little noisy. We did let the hotel desk know about it, so we hope it will... More

The Boxer is uber hip hotel in the north end of the city. Walking distance to all the big attractions and really well priced. There is in room free wifi and a hotel bar away serves great "libations" and dinners. It's small and well looked after. We were on the 6th floor which looked out onto a grubby concrete building...

Super clean, great amenities, close walk to everything, subways to go far places, just great. Super nice staff, bar could have been better, but you can go out for that at least. Love the style of this place. So hipster.

It's a nice and stylish hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are rather small and bathroom is tiny. The air con is very loed and without having it switched on it's getting to hot in the room. Excellent location for exploring the city and the Italian area of Boston.
