Old Boston HotelPosted Jul 14, 2015
Pros: The location
Cons: update the rooms, paint them, put in new bedding, new tiles in bathrooms
Location: Right in downtown Boston- perfect location
The Boston Common Hotel has a great location - right in Back Bay/Copley area so it is easy to walk around to all the tourist spots. The hotel is old and the decor is dated. The rooms (almost all queen size beds) have old looking/tired bedding, small/not flat screen tv's, very dated bathrooms and barely enough room to move around. Note that there is no restaurant or bar or concierge service in hotel. One woman (they were all super nice) runs the front desk and appears to be the only one at the front of the hotel so if you are on hold for a long time its because she is wearing many hats.

Boston CommonsPosted Jul 8, 2015
Good hotel. Reasonable price and free Internet and breakfast. . If you can handle 1960 decor, a good value for downtown Boston.

いいと思います。Posted Jul 7, 2015
Location: バックベイ駅がすぐ近くにあり、飲食店や スーパーもそばにあるので立地は良い。 ホテルの周辺に大きな公園もある。
部屋の清潔さと基本的な設備に問題ありません。 ネット環境が良いとは言えませんでしたが・・・。 ただ、受付の接客も悪くないですし、何より立地が良いので 満足でした！機会があればまた利用したいと思います。

Basic Hotel, Great LocationPosted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: Location, good air conditioning.
Cons: Rooms could use some renovations, new paint.
Location: Orange and Green Lines, Copley Square Plaza, Prudential Centre, Boston Common.
We stayed for 4 nights in the hotel. It is a bit dated and you can tell it's an older hotel. However the room was very clean and comfortable. The A/C worked amazingly well. The cleaning staff was excellent and the room and linens were changed promptly. The continental breakfast was fairly basic with some toast, bagel, and pastry options, but it got the job done. The highlight of the hotel was its location. It is located minutes away from 2 different subway lines (Orange and Green) making it easy to get around Boston. Highly recommend getting the weekly pass for the T which is only $19 for unlimited rides. Overall, good basic hotel with a fantastic location for getting around the city.

this is probably the only hotel I would stay at in Boston because the value for money can't be beat; check-in was very smooth and location of hotel is ideal for exploring Boston

very basic accommodations, but fit the bill for a short trip. They say wireless internet is only available in the lobby but I had a great signal on floor 8.

駅に近い便利なホテルPosted Jun 16, 2015
Pros: 治安も良い、交通の便も良い。このエリアの割に安いほうだと思いました。 角部屋だったので、窓が２つあり、閑かだった。 スタッフがフレンドリーでした。
初めてのボストンでの一人旅、不安でもありましたので、交通の便利なところ、Wifiが部屋でも使えるところとして 選びました。ボストンの中心地のホテルはどこも高いので、ここはそれでも安い方だと思います。 だから、シャワーの出具合は心もとなく、バスタブも古いままでした。Wifiは結局はロビーでしか、使えなく ７Fからの移動はやはり不便でした。帰りのタクシーを前日にフロントのスタッフが呼んでくれました。 翌朝の７時でしたが少し早めに来てくれ、行きのタクシーとは違いリムジンで一律、３５ドルということでした。 とても紳士的なドライバーさんで、実は有名なマラソンランナーだった方でした。思わず感激でした。
