Beautiful historic building, near Public Gardens

Posted Jul 15, 2017
If you love the historic old Boston, you'll love this place! I stayed in a single with a shared bath. It was no problem at all. It felt like staying at a friend's house!

Good location, beautiful historic brownstone.

Posted Jul 13, 2017
Beautiful historic brownstone building within walking distance to the Public Garden. High ceilings and spacious room, very clean. Bathroom updated nicely. Great character in the room and overall. Staircases are beautiful. They have wonderful cookies and good coffee in the dining room. Very quiet area and within walking distance to restaurants.

Wonderful place--perhaps my all-time favorite

Posted Jul 7, 2017
Location: Short walk to the subway, Public Gardens, Newbury St--and a longish but doable walk to the Boston MFA (which we visited both days). Tree-lined road!
Loved the period furnishings, the photographs of influential women lining the staircase, the high ceilings, the quiet, the location, and the absence of TV in the room!

Good location near Boston Common

Posted Jul 5, 2017
Nice room for a solo traveler. The rooms have towels, which I wasn't sure about from the description. The shared bathroom was nice and clean, and it has marble floors and walls in the shower. It's a regular single bathroom for the floor of about eight or ten rooms, so you keep your things in your bedroom, not the bath.

Great location, like living in Boston

Posted May 31, 2017
This is a great place to stay if you're independent, don't need a lot of pampering, don't need to party every night and just want a good, economical, professionally-run place to stay. I like being left alone when I stay here. It's quiet and the location is perfect for walking Boston's many charms in Back Bay.

Classy, Not Klassy

Posted May 27, 2017
Pros: Location. Breakfast and treats!
Cons: Couldnt figure out how to geat the room.
Location: Walk! Jump on the Freedom Trail.
Super cute B&B. No better location for exploring Boston by foot. This property is best for highly independent travelers, as there is virtually no staff on site to assist.

New England Old Timey Charm

Posted May 11, 2017
Pros: Price was right and it was an authentic Boston place, as opposed to other hotels in Boston that are trying to be something kitschy (see The Verb).
Cons: Freshen up the furniture, especially in the dining room.
Location: Skip and a jump from the Public Gardens and Boston Common. Centrally located to tourist spots as well as the shops and restaurants on Newberry Street
This bed and breakfast is a real throwback but comfortable and very well-located half a block from the Public Gardens. No TV or air conditioning but my room was huge, decorated with antiques, clean and homey. The bathroom is all new. Little signs around the room, "The Closet is Behind this Door," and "Please Do Not Remove this CD from the Room. Enjoy Listening to the Music." Ample continental breakfast is served in a slightly outdated dining room but its all part of the ambiance. The College Club was started in 1890 by a group of collegiate women as a social club. It is still operational and the current members' portraits hang on the stairway walls.

Charming historic B and B.

Great location. Charming, historic building. Very Boston/New England. Right by Public Garden. Shared bathroom was fine. Very clean. Good breakfast in lovely dining room. Books every where. No TV which is a nice break.
