Meg was a wonderful hostess. The continental breakfast was simple but very good and enjoyable. Meg answered our questions about the area, provided helpful suggestions and recommendations. The other guests were extremely friendly shared their pleasure with the accommodations as well. The bathroom was very clean, light and airy. At 6 foot 1 inch the full size bed was short... More

My husband and I visited Boston in October and stayed at Hilltop Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights. Meg was a friendly, helpful and generous host. The bed was comfortable and room was clean. The area is lovely and there is easy access to the city on the T. We enjoyed our stay and happily recommend this B&B.

While my stay was generally acceptable, I was very concerned about safety and security as there are no locks at this B&B. Neither rooms nor front door were locked thus I had to carry any valuables with me. The location is great, and while I'm sure it's a very safe neighborhood, I will not stay again in a place without... More

My wife and I had a conference to attend downtown in early September. We were completely unfamiliar with Boston prior to staying at Hilltop. Meg taught me how to use the "T" (Boston's trolley/subway system) and made us feel at home. The T is within walking distance. She packed us a breakfast to take on the T with us each... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days while looking for a place to rent. The room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom, although was shared, also was always very clean and I never had to wait to use it. The breakfast is also delicious and the owner of the house is very kind and helped me a lot... More

I had a really good experience at the hilltop B&B, mainly thanks to Meg Zaremba, the host. Prof. Zaremba is kind and accommodating, the house is clean and the bedroom is quite large. My bedroom (room A) had a large bed, an armchair, a dresser and a desk. It shares a bathroom with another room which didn't cause any problem.... More

Nice short walk from the green line (the subway), so it's super-easy and quick to get into downtown Boston and do stuff, nice room, yummy breakfast, great host, great price for Boston - stay here! The neighborhood was very quiet. A lot of people who work in Boston live in Brookline, so be prepared for a full subway car during... More

Although a long time resident of Brookline, now living away, this spot was new to me. It turned out to be a perfect choice. Comfortable and extremely convenient to transportation and a great new restaurant scene in town. Owner is pleasant and considerate and knowledgeable about the town and resources while giving her guests good space. Will certainly use this... More

You will share the bathroom with only one other bedroom. It was cleaned every day and it has everything you need. Clean Towels, shampoo, soap... the room is clean, storage, Small TV,... More

We stayed here a few nights in September 2013. It is a very convenient location for public transport and good restaurants within walking distance (especially the Spanish). Good breakfast and very helpful host. Free parking and internet. Good room although I found my bed a bit soft. Meg is going to test it out! We would stay here again.
