Bad hotel!!!

Posted Mar 23, 2015
I will never stay here again! There were so many problems with this hotel that I can't remember all of them. Passive hotel staff, no tv in my room, shared bathroom, tv didn't work in the breakfast room, squeaky floors, no microwave available in the whole hotel!!, no personal soap only a plastic pump bottle for all to use??? Window inthe restroom broken, original door knobs broken on my bedroom door, no thermostat!, And the list goes on and on. And what's more disturbing than anything is the staff acted as if NOTHING was wrong with that as I reported or mentioned everything to them. Very nice people but, Never again!!

A nice change from the big chain hotels

Posted Mar 21, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at this guest house. It's a very different experience from staying at a major hotel. Great view from our room over Commonwealth Avenue. Good location and comfortable beds.

Historic, Affordable Comfort in Back Bay

Posted Mar 7, 2015
Pros: The historic components were fascinating. The hotel is quite comfortable, well-decorated, not at all pretentious, and with a wonderful coffee machine.
Cons: Can't think of a thing.
Location: An idyllic, public park is across the street, and several dining options are in close proximity. The nearby subway station makes getting around easy.
The hotel sounded very nice, but I was hesitant to book it because of the shared bathrooms. I needn't have worried. There was never even anyone else in the halls, let alone waiting for their turn in the bath facilities.

Great location in Back Bay

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: The breakfast was very good - fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels, toast, English muffins, cereal, juices, teas, coffee and a great espresso/cappuccino maker.
Cons: Touch up the paint and floors a bit.
I loved the place. It was very comfortable and cozy. It was like staying in a Back Bay Mansion with a beautiful staircase and pretty rooms. Coffee and tea are available all day as well as delicious homemade cookies. Daily newspapers and current magazines as well.

Old world character

The room was clean and comfortable. There was brickabrack that made it very homely, with a setting of a time gone by.

Great location and very spacious room.

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Checked in after hours with no trouble using the code. The breakfast was a simple continental set-up, which was fine. The location was great and the room was huge, and very clean.

Beautiful B&B!

Posted Feb 14, 2015
The price is right, the rooms are gorgeous, the location in fabulous, and the bathroom is beautiful. I can't rave about this place enough! The room I stayed in (Boston University) was huge, I had my own private bathroom, the king bed was comfortable, and the staff was so helpful. I wish there was a TV in the room and that's really all I can say. WiFi was wonderful, too!

Not happy!

Posted Feb 8, 2015
Perfect location! Thats it! Very old, maybe charming to someone but my room was very uncomfortable. That room was worth maybe $20 a night, not a penny more!
