A comfortable place to stay
Posted Oct 16, 2016
The Oasis and Adams Guest Houses are in a small terrace of houses just off Massachusetts Avenue. The nearby Berklee Music College probably sets the relaxed neighbourhood tone - lots of students carrying musical instruments, convenience stores and cafes. This is not a hotel chain, so you don't get identikit rooms and facilities, but you do get the personal touch, making it feel like a superior bed and breakfast to a UK visitor. A shared lounge and kitchen (fridge and microwave - "organic supermarket" at the end of the road) downstairs add to the space you have in your own room. I found that almost everywhere I wanted to go in Boston and Cambridge was within easy walking distance (no more than half an hour to the furthest) but the MBTA can take you anywhere from just around the corner if you are not so keen on walking or going further afield.
