Overnight to attend BU graduationPosted May 23, 2015
Myself & 2 daughters had a great "sleepover" in the kingsize bed in the beautiful large room with a wonderful bathroom with gorgeous mosaic floor. It was a little warm the date we were there, but the a/c worked perfectly. We didn't have time to partake of the complimentary breakfast. Old world charm nicely kept! Beautiful neighborhood & just around the corner from the T. It was a very short stay, but I would definitely return & recommend to others!

Victorian hotel, great location!Posted May 16, 2015
Pros: Old and charming. The staircase is amazing - nod to the talent and workmanship of our forbearers. Location was great.
Cons: The shower! It was either hot or cold, unable to easily manipulate the knob that controlled temp
Location: Did that above
Notified them of late arrival, easy to follow self-entry instructions. Tried to miss the creaky steps, especially since it was 1:00 am, but that was impossible - added to the charm! Located on an absolutely beautiful street - very picture worthy; close to Public Gardens (beautiful, relaxing, interesting), Boston Common and the T. Two nights, tried to get a third, but they were booked, and this was off-peak! Attendant got online and provided several options for other accommodations. Appreciated helpfulness. Breakfast was simple, but better than just pastries. No TV, but so busy during the day, we were ready for bed when we got in at night. No A/C, a portable fan was provided which sufficed, but this was in May. I imagine in summer it could be problematic.

This is a beautiful brownstone on Commonwealth Ave. The Public Garden and Boston Common are just a few minutes away. The decor and furnishings are older as befits the style of the building. Our room was large, quiet, and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. There were cookies, lemon bars, ice water, tea and coffee available all day. That made for a nice place to take a break while walking around the city. We'll definitely stay here again.

Great locationPosted Apr 16, 2015
Cons: Room was cold. But not too bad.
Location: The Boston Common is close. You can walk down Charles St too. I'd say everything seemed close to me. And the trains system is great.
I did not know what kind of hotel this was. It is not the "regular" kind. The location is amazing. Just one block from Boston Common. The view is great. I loved my room even though it was a little cold. Furniture and decor was very different, sort of Victorian but not quite. No TV. Breakfast was pretty simple, but who would want to have breakfast in with all the amazing coffee shops in Boston. I recommend this place, and I hope to be able to go back. Again: the location is great.

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 hotelsPosted 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.
