Felt like home

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 11, 2011

We felt at home straight away in our hotel room - it was comfortable and modern. The bed was comfy and everything was clean. Although there is no tea making facilities in the room there is a tray in the reception area where you can help yourself.

Breakfast was the same everyday - but was well cooked and enjoyable. There was a selection of cereals, melon, scrambled eggs, bacon, english muffins, butter and jams - tea and coffee. There were also take away cups so you could grab an extra coffee to go.

Unique Quality: Homely and comfortable in a great spot for eating out and shopping.

A Great but Affordable Guesthouse

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 25, 2007

Let me make one thing clear about Boston. By European standards there are no cheap places to stay. At least someplace that I would send a love one and want him or her to sleep in relative comfort. When I began to consider a visit to Boston, which was about three months before I actual did arrive in the city, I thought that I would be best to book a relatively affordable place to stay well in advance. After some research I came up with the Newbury Guesthouse. I choosed this establishment for a couple of reasons being cost and location. The room I stayed in cost me $140.00. That is cheap by Boston standards but to be honest the room was small for an American hotel room. In much of Europe this room would have cost about half as much. Still the room was well maintained and very clean. The location was great as it was just six blocks from Fenway Park and near many bars and restaurants. The guesthouse is in a row of three old brownstones that does give the place a rather homey feel that I liked.

Unique Quality: The Newbury Guesthouse is presently being renovated to some degree. They are building a bar in the basement. The staff here was quite friendly and helpful.

Directions: Just north of the Prudential Building which is a helpful landmark. The nearest subway station is the Copley Square Station.

A perfect budget escape on Newbury

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 4, 2006

My parents stayed in this hotel in August, 2005. I appreciated the "old Boston' ambience of this converted three story brownstone. Staff were friendly and gracious. Their room was nicely decorated and beds were comfortable. Their room with two queen beds for the two of them was just under $200/day after tax. They also rented a space in their parking area behind the hotel for our car at $15/day.

Breakfast included bacon and scrambled eggs, bread, bagels, muffins, cereals, fruit, coffee and tea, and newspapers in the breakfast room

The hotel is on fashionable Newbury Street in Back Bay, a great location with a number of good restaurants along the street.

My parents were delighted with this hotel, and would try to stay there again.

This is not the place for people who prefer modern, high rise, steel and glass hotels.

Unique Quality: This hotel is in the perfect location for a true Boston experience. The shops on Newbury street, as well as the restaurants appeals to those who love true cities, and the location is very close to two T stops. Normally the cost of a hotel in Back bay would be through the roof, but this cute B & B is the perfect solution if you want a comfortable stay without all the hype.
