Having read the reviews I was rather anxious about staying at this apartment in Boston. We were delighted to find that it was much better than expected. Yes the rooms could do with a deep clean, fittings etc., were quite dusty and the sofa bed was uncomfortable but, the apartment was spacious, well equipped, plenty of linen, hair dryer in... More

Two friends and I went for a convention. Found this place on hotels.com and it was in a perfect location for an extremely good price. As noted in other reviews, you do have to climb stairs as there is no elevator. Other than that, we had no complaints. Very nice apartment. Two of us slept in the bedroom and the... More

came to boston for fun and to catch up with a couple friends for a weekend. Found the Boston Christopher by accident. Was looking for a Hotel in Back Bay but occupancy was limited and those that had rooms were extremely expensive… The process was pretty easy. Made the reservation online through inn boston reservations and received an email confirmation... More

A number of issues: - I was aware that we had to go upstairs without an elevator so be prepared for that. We had to go up three flights of narrow stairs pulling suitcases. -Wi-Fi is terrible. Continually drops you need to logon every time it comes back. Completely annoying and should not be happening with only 9 units and... More

First the good: cute rooftop patio, location okay but Boston is a very walkable City, nice neighbourhood, pillows and bed comfortable, my room came with an outside balcony and I kept the door open a lot to let cool air in, ceiling fan which I kept running for six days, kitchen adequate. Now the not so good: very tiny room... More

First those people advertise with really cheap prices ($100-$150 per night) once you contact them they say that the thing you asked for isn't available anymore and they offer you something worse and much smaller for $350-$550 !!! My boyfriend insisted to go so we did and we were terribly disappointed. The apartment wasn't the same AT ALL than on... More

My plane was delayed and I arrived at The Christoper at 1:30 AM. The street was deserted and I had to call them for the code to enter. The entry opens directly to the stairs that were steep and dirty. My room was on the top floor. There is no elevator, if you have bad knees this is not for... More

I stayed here for 4 nights at the start of June. When I got into my room, it was unbearably hot. Called the main office (offsite) who said they would contact the guest who controlled the a/c for my floor (3 units on each floor share an a/c with the controls inside one of the suites). Called back an hour... More

We stayed in a studio that was impeccable, though in reality a tiny bit smaller than it appeared in images. That said, the design was lovely, the shower perfection, the bed - a wonderful mattress! The kitchenette had absolutely everything we needed and in perfect working order. The location is ideal (a few blocks from the Pru), the neighborhood is... More

Husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in May for the PAX East Convention. Let me break it down. COST: Holiday Inn total for 4 nights: $841.63. The Boston Christopher: $460 flat. LOCATION: Perfect. It was centrally located to many things. The neighborhood was absolutely lovely with many dining options around. One evening we walked over to Tremont 647... More
