Ideal for short stay

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Pros: Excellent location.
Cons: N/A. Excellent staff, facilities as advertised. However, be aware there are no lifts.
Walking distance to down town Boston, yet sufficiently tucked away from the traffic and noise. You get what you paid for - which isn't much in terms of frills - but excellent value for money. Be aware there are no lifts and may not be the best for those travelling with lots of luggage!

Ok

Posted Jun 19, 2014
Pros: Local not a chain
Cons: Updated and cable ESPN
Location: Close to a lot of great eats and such
Labeled as a B&B. However, the breakfast was something you would get at a Residence Inn with out the eggs and bacon. Nice mom and pop place. Well kept. Small but homely. Could be updated.

Good central location in Back Bay

Posted May 22, 2014
Pros: Location is great...easy walking distance to the restaurants and shopping of Boylston St, also an easy walk to Fenway Park.
Location: Guest house is so centrally located that if you are a walker, you can walk the entire Freedom Trail if you take your time.
For a guest house, many amenities, such as complimentary Wifi in the rooms, a nice continental breakfast provided each morning, daily Boston Globe in the sitting rooms. But most of all, the professional staff, from the on-site owners to the helpful front desk staff is what made the stay memorable.

Beautiful Location

Posted May 16, 2014
Pros: Very clean, great, tree lined back street location, and having boiled eggs, bagels, nice coffee and a simple, yet elegant decor would be me back again
Cons: AIR CONDITIONING
Location: I was up to visit my recent college graduated daughters. After they graduated we all moved from norther VT after many years. Boston/NYC
The staff were very nice. The buildings were nicely elegant in a beautiful backstreet close to many of Boston's many cultural and musical venues. Restaurant choice was amazing. Boston is a wonderfully foody city. The room was elegantly simple, clean, nice bedding, very clean bathroom, etc. The one issue for me, and this may be personal due to my seasonal allergies, was the fact there is no control over room temperature. It was not a hot night but the wisps of air eecking out of the very small ceiling and floor vents seemed to make no perceptible difference in exchanging warm stale air for cool filtered air. The attendants leave at 11:00 so there was no way to ask whether it could be changed. My sense was that it could not. I stood on a chair and using a piece of toilet tissue as a test, it would not even move the toilet tissue. Alas, please turn up the A/C. At a $180 a night it would have been a lovely buy, if I could have slept better. Air, as I learned in HS and was reinforced at University is an essential element to thrive. Fix it and I will be back.

Nice place, nice staff!!

Posted May 15, 2014
Pros: The Guesthouse is perfect situated, very convenient to reach every point in the city.
Cons: One more table in the breakfast-area would be nice.
Price-Performance-Ratio is unbeatable! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and had every we needed.

Good location, very basic hotel

Posted May 6, 2014
Pros: The continental breakfast was reasonably well done.
Cons: Update the furnishings and linens, and provide a better array of cereals and fruit at breakfast.
Location: There's a Whole Foods and several restaurants within a short walk, and Fenway Park is 15-20 minutes away.
The hotel is well located close to several T stations in the Back Bay area, with very small, clean rooms, and a continental breakfast available each morning. For Fenway Park, it's ideal, a 15-20-minute walk, so you don't have to contend with parking, public transportation, etc. The room was so small my partner and I couldn't have both our suitcases open and get around the room at the same time, and I couldn't help wondering, if I'd looked harder, if I'd have been able to get better value for my money elsewhere. As it was, Oasis Guest House was serviceable, but not enjoyable.

The room was very small! But our stay was great!

Posted May 5, 2014
Staff was great, very helpful. Room was very small, but the Oasis Guest house offered everything we needed. The breakfast spread each morning was very good! Great selection! We would return, we would just ask for a larger room next time :)

Basic Housing

Posted May 1, 2014
Pros: Location. Cost.
Cons: Time to clean the rugs.
Location: Prudential Center, Hynes Convention Center, Berklee College of Music, Symphony Hall. Tons of stuff to do in the area. A 15 minute walk to Fenway Park
The Oasis Guest house is pretty basic housing. Nothing fancy, but you're not paying for anything fancy. Location is excellent -- only a 5 min walk to the Prudential Center or Commonwealth Ave, Newberry Street, etc. But, don't labor under any delusions that the rooms in any way compare to even a 3 star hotel. Having said the above we were not unhappy with our stay and we felt that we got a decent value for the money. Staff was super friendly and helpful and the room was quiet. We stayed in a room with an en-suite bathroom but it was tiny with just a shower.
