This place is the most welcoming place I have visited for a long time. Came with my two children and we enjoyed the cosy atmosfare - fire place, tee, coffee and homemade cookies. Lovely breakfast. Staff very helpful and always available. We love it and we will return!

A peaceful and charming oasis in Boston! We stayed here while attending a conference and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer and spend more time in this quaint and quiet space. The innkeepers are wonderful and the hone is just gorgeous. It's also very affordable by Boston standards.

My daughter and I stayed Super Bowl weekend (Saturday night) as we were attending "Eagle Day"at Boston College.. The Inn is only a short drive to BC so the location was perfect. There is a gym and many restaurants within easy walking distance even in the snow. Our room 14 was up a couple of flights of stairs so be... More

I stayed at The Bertram Inn for three nights recently while visiting my son, a Boston University student. The Inn is lovely and I enjoyed my stay, however there were a couple of things that need attention. The carpet in my room (#15) was visibly dirty and worn. No amount of vacuuming would solve the problem. It needs to be... More

After several stays here and the now closed sister inn (Sewall Inn), we have to write to say how convenient and comfortable all our stays have been. On-site parking, great breakfasts, comfortable beds, easy access to the T, walking distance to BU.... All of our needs and wants are met. We love staying in a place with a neighborhood feel.

This was our first trip to Boston, and I wanted to stay in a place with historic significance. My husband booked us in the Bertram Inn and I loved it from the moment I walked in the doors. It's charming! The service is superb and the room was huge! Everything was clean and the bed super luxurious. The towels were... More

Our family stayed, for the second year in a row, at a wonderful bed and breakfast in Boston (Brookline). The Bertram Inn is a beautiful, old mansion, with exquisite rooms and furnishings, a fabulous breakfast (no fast-food; it is cooked, each morning, from scratch) and attentive staff, who can even get you tickets to the Red Sox and other sporting...

All hotels were booked in Boston, where a colleague and I went on a 2 day/1 night business trip. But we found this gem, a lovely B&B perfect for business or leisure. The rooms where comfortable with excellent bedding and shower. The welcome and service was outstanding: they agreed to receive our many boxes of materials for our event, and... More

This place is so comfortable. You are welcomed like family. There are snacks out all day and the breakfasts are great. The location makes it easy to get around by T or car. Great choice. I'm a repeat visitor. It's my home base when I'm in Boston.
