“Clean but a little too humble”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Although the building is quite tired feeling, it is, at least, clean and quiet. We never did meet the owners, but the young men who checked us in and toasted our bagels were polite and helpful. The locks on the bathroom and bedroom doors could use replacing. I never was sure when the bathroom was actually locked. Breakfast is humble - bagels, hard boiled eggs, dried cereal. The neighborhood is lively. No terrible complaints but I don't think we'd go back.

The staff members were very warm and welcoming and the other guests we met were all friendly and it was nice to meet them at breakfast each morning to chat. The only thing we could suggest is a fan in each room (year round) as our room was a bit warm for us even with the windows open. (We needed to keep the shades down for privacy so it almost defeated the purpose of having the windows open). Thought it was a nice touch to have the local Trader Joe's Citrus Shampoo and Conditioner at the ready in the shower (never would have tried it otherwise, and it was refreshing). Loved being able to have a cup of tea at anytime of the day or night. The refrigerator in the room was a big plus. Would also rec.some potpourri as you come in the door to freshen the air by the stairwell. Room was small but nicely decorated and adequate for the time we spent there. Would rec. it to friends.

Very comfortable, cosy, roomy room with TV (hundreds of channels), fast internet, ample closet space, comfortable bed. Shared a bathroom which was always clean and in order. Daily room (and bathroom) service, even on the weekend! Cookies, coffee, tea and fruit (until supplies lasted) available all day, breakfast was simple but adequate (bagel or muffin, bananas and apples, pb, jams, butter, cereal, milk, yogurt). Computer and printer in common area. Only issue might be that kitchen is next to this particular room, so there was quite some noise in the morning - though not a problem for me as I am an early riser anyway!

An excellent bed and breakfast, about 15 mins from the centre of Boston. Easily accesible using the Boston Underground service (T). $2.50 per person for a trip to any T destination. The B&B has approx 10 rooms but be careful when you book if you don't want to share a bathroom as not all rooms have en-suite facilities. Breakfast is a convivial affair but if the B&B is full there are not enough seats for all guests at the same time.. Breakfast was excellent with bagels or English muffins with almost any topping, as well as boiled eggs, cereal and enough tea or coffee to float a ship.

Great communication and service before arrival; all questions were answered and all our needs were met.
The Bed & Bagel is conveniently located in Brookline about 5 minutes from Coolidge Corner and T station. The breakfast was nice and tasty, even though nothing fancy.
The shared bathroom was very clean and had everything we needed. Our room was cute, though the bed was a little small for two. In conclusion, the Bed & Bagel is a good place for those who look for a cute homely place to stay for a comparatively reasonable price.
