    The pros of the hotel are: nice people, well located and... that's it. For it's price the room was old and dirty. Not even a small refrigerator. The room smelled funny and the carpet seem all but clean. Won't be back.

    Walk out the Dartmouth St exit of Back Bay station and turn right. Half a block down is Stuart St. Turn right one block and the hotel is right on the corner of Stuart and Trinity place.
