“Very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

You put together in a bowl great location, nice bedrooms, confortable facilities and (Believe!!) a complimentary breakfast included in your price and you get this hotel. Add already free wifi seringa enough to do whatever your want in your devices confortably in your room.
Nice placê, wonderful but expansive sorroundings with wonderful restaurants, that is what you get.
I deffinitly recomend and would be back!

Room Tip: I got a back bedroom (312) and no noise at all was heard.

My stay at the Newbury Guest House was so magical. Upon arriving the front desk person was so helpful I immediately felt very comfortable. Traveling solo can sometimes be a little freighting but not at the Newbury Guest House. Since it was my birthday, my children wanted to surprise me with flowers and a bottle of wine. The front desk person helped them find a florist and wine shop and when I opened my door to my room there was my big surprise. The front desk had complied a small note and attached it to the wine bottle. Such detail! I would highly recommend this lovely hotel and will definitely stay there again on my return trip to Boston. The location could not be better. Wish I could give a higher rating than 5.

This place is a true gem in the heart of Newbury Street. It has a very European feel. The breakfast is so good, eggs, bacon, pancakes! Such a quaint little hotel. Nothing but good things to say. This will be come the place we stay in Boston!

Great location for 'newbies' traveling to Boston, in the center of things yet tremendously more affordable than most of the well-known chain hotels. Would definitely stay again, and have recommended to friends traveling to the area.

Very happy with my recent stay here. The hotel is very conveniently located on Newbury Street about halfway between two T stops. I'm not terribly into shopping, but if you are, it's a great location. I appreciated it for being in a neighborhood, as opposed to a business district. The room itself was very nice -- fairly large and very clean, and the bed was excellent, extremely comfortable. The service was also very good; I met a friend who flew in on a red eye and not only was she able to get into our room on arrival, but she was offered breakfast as well. Breakfast was actually the one thing I was slightly disappointed in; it was fine, I just thought it might be better.

We stayed here for 3 nights on our family Christmas trip and what a gem this place was. We typically stay in chain hotels but a friend recommended Newbury Guest House & I'm happy we listened! Rooms were perfect and staff very helpful and friendly. Typical breakfast (offered in the connecting Crepe restaurant next door - muffins,toast, pancakes, cereal, eggs) each morning. The neighborhood is the best - great street with many options for dining and shopping. True Boston feel! Will definitely return. Thanks for a great stay!

It's the sweet spot to be in Boston. It's practically smack down in the shopping district of Boston. It's the cheapest you could get amidst the swanky hotels around without compromising the comfort of your stay. The place is very clean and the staff is very accommodating. It's 3-4 blocks from the train station and very accessible to all modes of transport. I'm currently staying here and all I can say is it's the sweetest spot to stay around Boston for the bang for your buck.

Room Tip: It's a block away from Prudential Shopping Center. So many shops and restaurants, so li'l ti...
