I chose this B&B based on other reviews for my first visit to Boston with my husband. The B&B owner, Reinhold, was gracious and helpful, although because of the configuration of this B&B, we only saw him at breakfast. Over the next 3 days, we enjoyed the B&B's close proximity and easy walking distance to Fenway Park, local restaurants, and a pleasant walk to the Back Bay T station. For theatre fans, it would also be very well situated. The perfect location was reflected in the cost of our room, however, and I must say that we were slightly disappointed in the breakfast (same every day) since none of it was prepared in-house and the only eggs on offer were hard or soft boiled; one should expect what would be prepared in a hotel room that had a kitchenette with no stove.
Although the decor of the rooms reflect the good taste of the owners, the towels and sheets were a bit tired. We were puzzled about an envelope left with a message that gratuities for staff were not included in the cost of the room when there was very little evidence of anyone straightening the room while we were out.
