The guest house is jaw-dropping in terms of the decor of this old "brownstone" type of residence. Chandeliers and old wood banisters and moulding. It is in a great location and is within walking distance of downtown, and not too far from the T. However, don't expect breakfast as there is only coffee provided. We stayed in the "blue room", and it was completely updated with a large king-size bed and very modern and large washroom. The furnishings are very nice, although a few chairs and a table would be useful when you just want to sit around for a bit. Also, be prepared to climb a couple of flights of stairs to get to the room. There is also a lack of helpful information regarding Boston, so getting oriented is a bit difficult at first. It would be helpful if the owners made maps of the area and city available, with some other tourist information (it is readily available at the tourist offices) since there is little opportunity to meet or have any discussions with other guests without breakfast being available.
