This is a small hotel that serves a continental breakfast, not a traditional family-owned bed and breakfast. But it's a good value compared to the cost of hotels in Boston. The rooms are small but the beds were good and pretty quiet. It's on a side street with little traffic. There was no way to adjust the room temperature, but we didn't need to. WiFi reception was good, but not many TV channels. Breakfast was fine -- bagels, instant oatmeal, coffee, fruit, yogurt. The lounge was very nice and you could sit in comfortable chairs and visit with the other guests, or make yourself a cup of tea in the afternoon. There is a sister hotel, the Oasis, about 50 feet down the street where you actually check in.
It's about a six minute walk to the subway station (Hynes Convention Center), so it takes about 15 - 20 minutes to get to the tourist areas. We got a subway pass which made it very convenient. There are lots of great restaurants nearby since it is a college area. The B Good restaurant has some of the best hamburgers we've had, with quality ingredients.
