This guest house is in a great location on Newbury street. You're on the doorstep of quality cafes, restaurants, high end shops but also a local market - everything is right there. Our room faced the back so looked onto the laneway, however this was good as we could go out and enjoy all that Newbury St has to offer... More

This guest house was a very comfortable and charming respite from the hot sidewalks and myriad shops. We were warmly greeted and accommodated with a ready room well before check-in time. The many soft, impressionist paintings added to the tranquility and lightened the atmosphere. The location is within easy walking distance to many sights including The Prudential Center (7 minutes).... More

HA! Golly those darn delivery trucks, albeit necessary to carry on for all the Newbury street businesses can be very very pesky indeed! We sure hope you weren't too inconvenienced by them. We love it when rooms open up early to our guests and happy we could accommodate you. Thank you for taking the time out to send us a... More

We only stayed one night, but what a memorable experience. The location is superb for sight-seeing, shopping and dining. Steps to the Green Line T. Fabulous full breakfast served. Convenient to Back Bay Station for Amtrak or MBTA Commuter Rail. The friendly & knowledgeable staff, central location, charming elevator, cozy lobby -- the entire vibe reminded me of the classic,...

Parking was easy to find if you follow instructions on their webpage. Check in was super fast and friendly. There is an elevator, or stairs to the rooms however careful on the stairs they are old and very uneven. No air conditioning in the hallways however the rooms are very cool, comfortable and very spacious as far as Boston hotels... More

The location of this charming Guest House is unbeatable.... a brownstone directly in the heart of trendy Newbury street. Shops and restaurants are right at your front door, literally. There is a small restaurant attached to the Guest House. They offer a simple breakfast daily for guests, included in the rate. The staff was very nice and responsive to requests.... More

Everything was perfect; room was clean and comfortable. We had a great view from the bay window in our room. We experienced a bit of noise from the ground level restaurants and passing traffic; however, it was no longer an issue after 11 pm or so. Great location with restaurants and stores a short distance away. We were only there... More

I had never been to Boston, though my husband had, and I picked the Newbury Guest House without quite realizing what a great choice it was. The location could not have been better. It was walkable to so many places I wanted to see (Boston Commons, Trinity Church, Boston Public Library, etc.), walkable to countless terrific and varied restaurants, and... More

The guest house is in an incredible location. The Back Bay is outstanding. The room was quite nice. It was also clean and well kept. The breakfast was outstanding! There were scrambled eggs, other hot choices, great coffee, and a lot of other options. The staff was professional and very friendly. The inn has old world charm.

We loved this place and everything about our stay. The room was comfortable, affordable, and quaint. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We could get everywhere we wanted to go on foot or with a quick, cheap uber ride. The food that's close by is amazing - we particularly enjoyed Atlantic Food Co.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
