Cool area, close to downtown, yet with calm streets. Nice old houses. Close to Boston Commons Park. Nice restaurants and shops in the area.

“LOVE the Hill”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This was our favorite part of our walking tour of Boston, which wasn't organized, we did it on our own. We just wandered and got lost thruout the "Hill" and loved it. Really beautiful homes and architecture. Well worth strolling thru.

“Beautiful building and surrounding park”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Very attractive architecture that sticks out through the taller, more modern buildings. The park that is over looked by this building is beautiful and bustling.

“Colonial Throwback”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

If you have ever walked Georgetown in DC, Beacon Hill has the same historic charm that just can't be replicated. It can only be authentic colonial heritage.
