Aged Hotel

Posted Apr 27, 2015
Pros: The staff was awesome - helping with bags, enabling us to check in a bit early, helping with directions and transportation and restaurant reservations
Cons: Lobby needs more space.
Location: Northwestern University is walking distance, and being right on the c line of the rail enables quick access to the whole city!
Good value, EXCELLENT staff, hotel shows it age. Rooms have been slightly updated. Best part is the convenient location!

Excellent for the price

Posted Apr 24, 2015
I was in town for a conference and could not afford to stay at the nearby hotel at which the event was being held. Midtown Hotel was less than half the price of most hotels in this neighborhood, the room was clean and comfortable, the staff courteous and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in this neighborhood.

It was a very pleasant stay!

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: i have nothing to complain about everything was well set and nice.
Cons: rooms are kind of outdated, can be better but it's overall still nice.
Location: Prudential Center Mall, Newbury St for shopping
The price was definitely not too shabby for this hotel for that fact that is the heart of Boston and everything was very convenient. Theres a mall, market, you can walk to chinatown and newbury st right behind Prudential Center where you can go shopping. Theres a lot of food places around so it is very convenient. Although theres no fridge, they offer you ice where you can keep drinks cold and theres a microwave somewhere in the hotel but you have to go to the front desk and ask. The staff there are super friendly and nice which is a thumbs up!! Definitely will come back if I'm visiting Boston again!!

einfaches Hotel

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Wir nutzten dieses Hotel für eine Übernachtung, da wir nur zwei Tage in Boston Zeit hatten. Daher war es sehr ärgerlich, dass unsere drei Zimmer nicht zur Check-in Zeit um 15.00 Uhr, sondern erst um 17.00 Uhr fertig waren. Die Zimmer waren sehr gross. Es existierte nur eine Nachttischlampe, daher war es sehr duster. In in den Ecken und hinter den Nachtschränken war überhaupt nicht gesaugt. An der Wand über der Duschbadewanne hingen noch die Haare der letzten (oder vorletzten) Gäste. Auch aus dem Handtuch hing ein fremdes Haar... Keine Ahnung, warum die Reinigung der Zimmer bis 17.00 Uhr dauerte... In einem unserer Zimmer funktionierte die Heizung nicht, was bei 3 Grad sehr ungemütlich war. Der Kofferträger war nicht abzuwimmeln, obwohl wir unsere Zimmer gleich neben der Lobby hatten und er hielt natürlich die Hand auf... Positiv: die Betten war bequem, und da wir die Zimmer zum Hinterhof hatten, war es angenehm ruhig. Zu den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln sind es nur ein paar Minuten Fussweg. Für eine Nacht war es ok, aber für längere Aufenthalte nicht zu empfehlen.

Inexpensive but loud

Posted Apr 11, 2015
This hotel is one of the cheapest you will find in this centrally located neighborhood. But... It's loud but because of he street traffic as well as the constant sounds of the parking gates lifting up and down below your room. Other than that it's quite basic but a good buy when you don't intend on spending a lot of time in the room.

great location and affordable!

Posted Apr 9, 2015
Pros: Location. Comfy beds.
Cons: The bathroom could be nicer an larger.
Location: Near the Prudential Center, near Berklee College of Music, near Mass Ave so plenty of restaurant options and T stops.
Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed here because of its proximity to the T lines having to get from the airport and around to several colleges in the area. It was perfect for that.

Great location!

Posted Apr 9, 2015
The Midtown is in an ideal location very close to the Prudential Shopping Center. We stayed here while visiting a bunch of colleges in the area and we were able to walk around the city of Boston as well. There is no other hotel in downtown that comes close to the lower price they offer either. The room was much more spacious than I expected and while the bathroom and vanity area was tiny, it was not a big deal considering we spent most of our time outside the room. Ron at the front desk was very friendly. The only issue is that there was no air in the building so the rooms got very hot and made it tough to sleep at night.

Very Affordable Stay in DownTown Boston

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Pros: the best part of it was the staff who really went out of their way to be helpful to someone not familiar with Boston and getting around the city.
Cons: While clean, the overall physical plant is a little tired.
Location: many restaurants within 3 blocks from high end to mom and Pop. Also Predential Ctr had chain restaurants and a food court. Also lots of shopping here
I needed to spend 4 nights in downtown Boston, and found this hotel in the near back bay just off the MTA green line (E) near the Prudential Center/mall. Price was right, and while it is not a fancy place to stay (Basic accomidations, but large room with comfortable beds), it was clean, comfortable and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The location was great: near many restaurants and shopping, with easy MTA access to all of Boston. If you are travelling on a budget to Boston, this is a reasonable alternative.
