“Hidden Gem in Boston”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

I lived in Boston for 10 years and had no idea this Inn existed. It's a hidden gem in the Back Bay/South End area and you will not be disappointed. Wonderful rooms, good central areas and an excellent location near many T lines (both bus and train). It's also a short walk from the Amtrak station (Back Bay) and minutes from many excellent restaurants in the South End. Highly recommend it. Will definitely stay here again.

Recently stayed 5 nights and found rooms well appointed, quiet, so handy to Central City Boston. Staff were extremely helpful. Generous breakfast included as well which was an added bonus. Would happily stay again. Clean linen supplied on request.

My fiancé and I just sated here last weekend and it was perfect. We are from NYC took the acela for the first tie and it left us within walking distance of this cute boutique Hotel. Whats better then never having to talk to anyone but getting a door code sent to your email and tarts how you get in to the hotel and your room. There isn't any checking in and out process, which is great. Looks like a an apartment building turned into a hotel which is great! The decor was modern with chevron patterns and such so it was a treat instead of that boring stuff you see everywhere else. The location happened to be perfect for what we wanted to do.
Walking distance from the train station, next to The Prudential Shops, 3 blocks from Newbury Street and a short walk to Fenway. I loved it and will be back soon.

I recently stayed here ( 4/22 - 4/26/14). Overall I felt that what I experienced was exactly what was promised by the Inn's website. The Inn was conveniently located @ 1 block from the subway. A short 5-10 minute walk from Boston's Back Bay Train Station... I highly recommend the walk if you just have a bag or so. Nice neighborhood - there was not a lot of street noise. I had a studio unit, which came with a kitchenette ( full size fridge with ice maker, 2 burner stove, microwave and coffee maker, plates, dinnerware etc...) The bed was comfortable enough for me (though a tad on the hard side). Pillows were numerous and nice, as were the sheets. Bathroom was shower only, but nicely equipped and the shower had good "power". (Has hairdryer, lighted mirror, iron and ironing board also there).
Staff was friendly and available.
Notes: Fridge ice maker did not work and no other ice maker was available. Staff did offer to "buy" me a bag of ice (which I declined). Inn advertises that they have a continental breakfast. You should not expect much of this, it is VERY minimal...!! Almost a crime to even advertise that they have it. DO make sure that you understand how the code works to enter the building and your room. Access is by keypad ONLY. (Keep the passcode in your purse or wallet.. it's 10 characters long) It's not complicated, but I did not understand the importance of the "#" key at first. This is an old ( but nice) converted building... This means that it has old wood floors under the carpet. This means that the floor creaks when you or others walk on it. If it will bother you to hear your upstairs neighbors walking around at night, consider getting a room on the top floor)
The Inn is small, there is a good chance you will not physically encounter anyone at all during your stay. ( Staff is in basement)

Room Tip: Others have suggested that you ask to avoid the room by the front door, I believe it is Room 101 if...

From the reservation to check out, the staff was very helpful and professional and it was very easy to reserve a room and to check-in. The hotel itself is very lovely - from the decor to the amenities.

Great location just a short distance from the finish line, yet so quiet and peaceful. Convenient to the Metro, shops and dining too. Rooms were lovely and staff were friendly and helpful. We'll definitely return and will recommend to anyone.

We stayed an entire week for our honeymoon, and everything was perfect. It's tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, but it's also convenient to pretty much everything. The staff is courteous and very responsive. We can't recommend this highly enough
