    It gives what it promises, nothing more. But the location is great, in the middle of everything. Wi-fi is not working consistently at the floor, but they tell you that. Breakfast is in the mid-low average and this could be improved. Anyway...Boston is expensive, people!

    Probably queen. Very comfortable. We had a couch and requested a mini fridge. Room kind of dingy but great location and price. Went twice.

    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.
