Friendly staff, sumptuous breakfast, snacks available all the time. The king-size bed was so high, I needed a step stool to get in. Luckily, there was one! I did not have a car, but parking was at an additional cost and looked to be very limited. Location was very convenient to Coolidge Corner as well as Longwood medical facilities.

A beautiful, historic inn with lovely well appointed rooms. The inn keeper was delightful and very helpful with directions and recommendations on local restaurants. Convenient location near T train and walking distance to many shops And restaurants. A large selection of complimentary coffees, teas and snacks available at all times.

I booked the Bertram for one night on a phone app while waiting to deplane at Logan. The Innkeeper, Dia, upgraded me upon arrival, and I loved my room, Room 2, on the first floor. Spacious, with bookshelves filled with great books lining one wall, a desk, sofa, working fireplace, a lovely rug....even the closet off the bath was charming,... More

We stayed at the Bertram Inn last weekend and had the same room as on our last visit. We bring our dog and she likes knowing the room and the place. It was quiet and we slept well. It has everything you need. My only request would be better lighting for reading in bed.

Everything about the Bertram Inn was nicely done. The staff were attentive, friendly, anticipatory and great hosts. Our first floor bedroom was charming, clean and very comfortable. And we so enjoyed our breakfasts and snacks (especially the homemade cookies)! This is the best B&B we've stayed at...out of more than a dozen. Great location in Brookline, too. Not far from...

As I knew how great breakfast they serve (complimentary) from my first visit, I was looking forward to my second visit. They did not betray me. My day in Boston started with a satisfaction with their warm and delicious breakfast. My second most favorite part of this inn is its luxurious bed that gives great comfort in sleeping.

We had the pleasure of visiting the Bertram again this fall and once again, we loved every minute. Breakfast here is ever-changing, always delicious and one of the reasons we come back again and again. Our room was spotless and comfortable as usual. And time spent on the outdoor deck, inside porch and cozy living room really make this our... More
