Close to everything

Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: This hotel was close to everything.
Cons: A hot breakfast is included with your stay. I wished that they had provided some additional items such as cold cereal and English muffins/bagels...
Location: Central to a shoppers mecca for sure. Within walking distance of the BSO.
We were greeted by a friendly person at the front desk. He was able to assist us with any questions that we had. The room was comfortable, clean, and had a nice view overlooking Newbury Street. Every room has individual climate control. The bathroom was not overly large but very adequate.

Great location.

I've stayed here before and love the location. Easy access to anywhere in Boston. Was lucky enough to get a parking spot behind the guest house. Not too many. Breakfast was fantastic. Would go again.

Great spot to stay - close to where we needed to be yet we felt miles away in the beautiful Newbury neighborhood. Great breakfast included,

I would recommend to stay here to anyone like myself that is visiting Boston for the first time. The guest house is located close to everything and it's in prime location. Very friendly staff and you feel like you are in your own home.

Charming and elegant.

Posted Jan 11, 2015
Pros: Beautiful old building; cozy sitting room looking out onto Newbury Street; excellent croissants at breakfast.
Cons: The continental breakfast lacks cereal.
Located in a beautiful brownstone in one of Boston's most fashionable neighborhoods, the Newbury Guest House is cozy, comfortable, and utterly charming. I absolutely would stay again.

Extremely comfortable, warm, & friendly - a keeper

Posted Jan 10, 2015
Pros: It was the perfect blend between historic and modern. The staff was great. The room was exactly right. The food was delicious.
Cons: Wished we had been able to eat lunch or dinner in their restaurant, because of the food quality, not the discount coupons. Didn't have enough time.
Location: On Newbury Street, on the north (lefthand) side.
We were thrilled to be able to check in a little early, because we badly needed to relax and warm up, not to mention catch up on some sleep. A short nap was perfect before meeting a friend for a beer and dinner. After a wonderful night's sleep, the breakfast was outstanding, something we do not say casually or extravagantly, because we have been in gourmet food since 1982. The poached eggs were soft; the rolls and croissants spot on, as good as if one's in Montreal or Paris. And the dining room itself was lovely. My husband kept saying how he'd stay there again in a heartbeat. I was well rested and relaxed, after a terrific hot shower, for meeting folks at Harvard Medical School about working there. Every staff member was helpful, friendly, and welcoming, all hitting just the right notes. For those of you in retail, this guest house makes customers, not sales.
