This guest house is ideally located in the Back Bay area, on a street full of boutique shops and restaurants. Despite the nightlife, it's not rowdy, and you're well placed to walk or get the T to all of Boston and Cambridge's main attractions. (Talking of the T, if you're arriving at Logan Airport then get the free courtesy bus to the Airport T and get a Charlie Ticket - the journey in to Copley or Hynes is only $2. Bargain.)
Our room faced Newbury St but wasn't particularly noisy. Aircon was handy as it was a warm spell. Room reasonably sized, firm but very good bed (we slept soundly), and good shower in the small-but-adequate bathroom.
Breakfasts are in the adjoining Creperie (via an internal door) - good but repetitive, with cereal, muffins, bacon & egg, coffee and fruit juice every day (plus assorted condiments). If I'm being hyper-critical, maybe something different on the weekends would have been ideal. Anyway, you won't starve.
There's also a French restaurant, La Voile, in the basement so you don't have to travel far for good food at dinner time either - but there are so many options only a short walk away.
Staff were helpful and booked restaurants and called a cab for us when we asked.
Free wifi throughout (as it should be), newspapers and coffee available all day in the reception lounge.
Highly recommended - good price, great location.
