A converted large family home near downtown. Many homes on Beacon street have been converted to guest homes. The location is good near the T line . (2.5 blocks).
Trying to get a room during commencement week in Boston is a challenge of sorts. This was the only room available for us at close $265.00/night.
The rooms are quaint and full of heritage furniture and decorations. A large old fashioned bed, but for us mattress far too soft.
Amenities are just in the bathroom, which is clean and modern. Very thin walls separate your bathroom with the one of your neighbor. My wife thought I was talking to her which actually was the neighbour man in his bathroom.
Service is only on request . Towels were exchanged but the bed not made! not a big deal but it was unexpected.
We arrived late pm and were advised to enter with the assistance of a key drop box, as the desk closes around 20.00 hrs. Despite many tries we were unable to open the box. No matter how hard we tried. Lucky for us another established guest arrived who in turn let us in.
There is coffee in the morning. Our room at the back of the house was quiet. Beacon street itself is a busy and noisy street during the day.
There was no need for AC, although we noticed a portable AC set in the closet for summer times.
