“Ultimate Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Although I don't expect it to remain that way for much longer! I'm hesitant to leave a review because I'd like to keep this place to myself! The locals we talked to didn't even know it existed! For everything we got, it felt like a STEAL.

There was always someone available at the restaurant should you need anything. We had people arriving at all different times and they made leaving keys/getting settled a breeze. The toiletries...Ferragamo. The rooms...immaculate. The robes and towels...Restoration Hardware. The coffee...Lavazza. The shower...stand up dual showerheads. The kitchenettes were perfect and had everything you could need, including extra room in the fridge for water and all the cannoli you will buy at Mike's (which is a block away). Depending on which room you're in, there can be alot of steps to climb. But hey, that's perfect for working off the cannoli. The first night we were in a studio over the bread shop. While it smells amazing at first, it can get old. I'm not sure I could have lasted a whole weekend.

Like the prior reviewer said, the location is UNBEATABLE! You walk out the front door and you are in the middle of all the Hanover Street action. Anything you could ever want to eat, drink, or buy is within a couple blocks. CVS is across the street for anything you may have left behind or if you want to stock up on water. The T is a short walk away (stop is Haymarket). It's a 10 min cab ride from the airport.

This place is amazing, and I hate to tell you to stay here, because I want to make sure I have a room for when I return. You won't regret your reservation!

I found the Suites after searching through Tripadvisor. I'm glad I found something different. The location is UNBEATABLE!!! The North End is full of life! The door/stairway to Bricco Suites is between Bricco Restaurant's two bars!!! We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite on the third floor. If stairs are a problem ask what floor your suite is on so it's not a problem. When you would open your suite door to the stairway there was the glorious aroma of garlic swirling through the air. The Suite was brand new and glimmering clean. Comfortable bed. The Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries were decadent! Only issue; it would be nice to have room darkening blinds. I would have liked to slept in. The items in the mini-frig were $5 each....way to expensive. There is a CVS store across the street for pantry items. Any requests we had were handled immediately. A map in the Suite showing where the valet parked your car would be helpful. We would definitely stay again and again.

Great location, and very clean when we arrived. The service was awesome and quick. For the price, this place is a steal. The best part is that you are surrounded by plenty of food!

Only Negative: Good luck parking. Nearest parking garage is a couple of blocks away.

The North End was a perfect place to stay. It had a neighborhood feel, surrounded by outstanding restaurants. The suites are new and nicely appointed with lots of natural light. The one bedroom we stayed in had a flat screen in both the living room and bedroom. The bathroom fixtures were great (rainfall shower and multiple shower heads!). The kitchenette was not much; no place to sit and eat, no coffee pot and only a beverage refrigerator. You won't want to cook, though, with all the wonderful restaurants all around. Some of the rooms are a bit of a hike up--ours was 51 stairs (rather steep) but we didn't mind. Dave (concierge) was very helpful on everything we asked for. It's a three minute walk to the T (Hanover stop) which makes everything in and out of Boston accessible.

Room Tip: Each suite is different, so it would be good to specify your needs. I was thinking a one bedroom sui...

Suite is absolutely beautiful. I felt so comfortable and right at home. The concierge, Dave, made my stay incredibly easy, was always available for the smallest need. The location is perfect, too. Right in the center of the north end. The restaurant associated with the suites below had amazing food and wine, as well. I'd stay here over a big hotel every time.

These North End suites are in a perfect location for a visit to Boston. The rooms are large, clean and air conditioned.

The associated restaurant is pretty good though there is lots of choice in the neighbourhood. The location on Hanover Street means that you walk out of the hotel directly on to the Freedom Trail. Most of Boston is walkable from here and there is a T station close by,

I would certainly recommend the Bricco Suites and would probably stay there again.

We recently stayed in Boston for a week. It was important to us to be in the heart of Little Italy and nothing could be more central than Bricco Suites. It is very upscale with high end fixtures and furniture. We actually stayed in two separate suites. The first was right on Hanover street on a Saturday night. Thay was far too noisy for us (although probably great if you are a party person). The next day, Mr. DePasquale personally saw to it that we were moved to a more quiet room and even adjusted our bill as he was sorry that the noise from below (which primarily came from Bricco Restaurant/Bar) kept us up. One thing that is a real plus is the guarantee of a reservation in one of the DePasquale-owned restaurants (there are several). This might not sound like a big deal, but the crowds in Little Italy are incredible and there are long waits. We got great seats at the the restaurants at which we ate (Bricco and Mare) with pretty short notice. The suites are near public transporation (we got a 7-day T-pass) which was good as driving in Boston can be very confusing and parking in Little Italy is tight. One word of warning would be to those with mobility problems. All old buildings in the area are narrow and tall. Depending on the location of your room, you could be going up and down a LOT of stairs. It was not a problem for us but it is something to be aware of. My only recommendation would be to have some basic flatware in the room as there are plates, wine glasses and napkins but nothing to eat or cut with. There is a CVS right across the street so we stocked up on necessary items there.

Room Tip: All rooms seem so be unique so be clear about the type of room you want when making a reservation...
