Just awful! I booked this on Expedia, believing it to be a "hotel", as described on the website. It is not a hotel. It is an unstaffed apartment building, with filthy carpeting, piles of dead leaves and dustballs in the entryway (there is no lobby), shabby aging fixtures, and no amenities. There was no mention that my room would be... More

We stayed here from the 29th dec to 3rd jan. Having stayed previously in 2013 we were a bit disappointed with a few things. The sofa bed is broken so we had to get a blow up bed from the inn at st boldolph and discovered late that night that there were no extra blankets just a sheet and due... More

My partner and I stayed here for a week at the end of October. The location was perfect - close to Back Bay Station, The Prudential mall and many good bars it was also walking distance to Boston Common. The whole experience was easy and enjoyable. The apartments are private and accessible by a code which was emailed to us... More

I've stayed here twice now. I actually really like that this place has no front desk (or any person) on site. It was nice to feel like I actually lived in the South End in my own apartment. Entry codes sent with email confirmation. I put codes in a note on my phone just in case. It's walkable to the... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 3 nights in October and were extremely disappointed with the accommodation. The entrance is dark and the carpet smelt, the stairs are steep and narrow making it difficult to manage the suitcases up 3 flights of stairs . The flat badly needed an upgrade, walls and soft furnishings were dirty and marked... More

The room itself was nice: spacious with a full kitchen and reasonably clean. However, too many things were wrong with the room. To begin with, there was no thermostat so the room was hot and stuffy with no way to change it. The mattress was covered in plastic so you stuck to it all night long. The clockradio was broken....

This is my second time staying at the Boston Christopher. Rather than a hotel this is a furnished apartment for rent with its own kitchen. I've stayed at the Grand Studio and a one bedroom and both had good standard and are a good value compared to a hotel. The living room in the one bedroom was big and comfortable.... More

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
