Arrived after dark from Logan as planned, and couldn't get through the stuck gate to the courtyard to use the door code. Adult daughter jumped the 5ft. iron fence, and the friendly grocer next door helped out with a cell phone number...which rang inside the building, but no one answered. The code did open the front door, daughter slammed the gate open for me, and we lugged our bags up the 5 flights to our room. Very nice views, odd shared kitchen and unattached bath, but we were warned. The B&B breakfast was frozen waffles in the refrigerator, little cereal boxes, and a hank of bananas. Computer did not work, and rooms had quite threatening warnings about the consequences of not returning the maps provided (which were not provided). Location in Little Italy was superb. We chose a B&B to extend the experience, but a well-located warehouse would have sufficed as well. After 3 days, we lugged our bags back downstairs, passed an open door with a lady at a computer, said "We're leaving", and she answered "OK". Hmmm....
