HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2016

Prime example of what makes a great hotel stay: comfy beds, hot & cold breakfast of good variety, ample parking, quiet neighborhood AND amazing customer service! My family included myself, my 28 yr old niece & her 2-yr-old-twin handicapped daughters (my great nieces), one of which spent 5 days @ Boston Children's Hospital undergoing 3 surgeries. Initially, all of us... More

Years of USA holiday experience has taught me that as you are out sightseeing all day everyday; it is not worth paying for luxury hotels. Hotel Boston fitted the bill for being reasonably priced, for having a clean and comfy bed, and facilities for making teas and coffees plus a basic breakfast. I have wanted to visit Boston for a...

Very large room and very good, free breakfast in the morning which includes a variety of muffins, bagels, cereals, scrambled eggs and breakfast meat, make your own waffles, yogurts, fruit and probably more. There are a variety of restaurants withing walking distance. The only downfall for... More

We were a family of 5. We found the hotel to be quite affordable. There are few shops nearby which gave us the chance to buy some snacks. The breakfast was good but room a bit crowded. The train is right across but the trip to the touristic neighborhoods of Boston can take some time. All in all however it... More

We had a room with two queen beds. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was a tiny kitchenette which was convenient. The free breakfast was good, very much like a chain hotel breakfast. The location was outside the center of Boston, but very close to the T which gets you there in about 30 minutes. My only complaint was... More

Room was clean and had a microwave and refrigerator which was nice. Hot breakfast was more than we expected. Only complaint was we stayed on the first floor and I could hear the people walking around on the second floor all night long. I would ask for second floor next time.

Enjoyed the comfortability of the room. Prices was good too. Will definitely be coming to stay again on my next trip. Right near the T and restaurants not far from this location. Bed was real comfort and the overall appearance of the room was good. It definitely surpass my expectations.

This hotel was one of the more affordable that we found in Boston. It is around a 2 block? walk to a train stop, a few blocks walk from a good restaurant and shopping area. The room is pretty standard, maybe a little bit shabby as in it could use a few touch ups. I'd suggest getting to breakfast early,... More
