The staff was friendly and accommodating. The old home the establishment occupies is quite nice. My room was workable. The common rooms were well-appointed. A lot of care and effort clearly goes into making guests happy

We've stayed here in the past although not recently. We love how we are greeted each and every time, nothing cold or robotic about it. The guest rooms are quaint and of a an era long ago. Fireplaces in many of the rooms. The common room is always set with snacks and a warm, home cooked breakfast is set out...

The staff really went out of their way to stash my kayak--I had forgotten it wouldn't be safe on my car in a big city at night. The breakfast was charming way to meet others. We sat on sunny terrace, we were three generations and all of us enjoyed it. Games for the younger set and NYT with crossword for...

Nice place, super friendly staff, common areas were fantastic, room was just ok. Stayed only two nights. Was rainy & wet but we has a good time. Easy walk to main areas. We had fun. Parking is additional but right next to door. I'd opt for bigger rooms next time.

Charming old home, with warm friendly atmosphere. Staff are supportive and friendly. Bathrooms small and need updating, but are sufficient. Breakfast has many options to get your day started right-with hot and cold options. Pastries are delicious!

We chose the Bertram Inn because of the stupidly high prices in Boston city centre and it was a good choice. Just a block from the subway and less than ten minutes walk to a wide range of restaurants at Coolidge Corner. If you're looking for a hotel that is bland and predictable then the Bertram wont be up your...
