    Du grand n'importe quoi ! L'hôtel est dégueulasse. Je pèse mes mots ! Le réceptionniste s'en fout et n'a qu'un mot à la bouche "désolé pour ça". Petit dejeuner offert : "non, on a que du café. Vous avez du mal lire." (C'est ça. Prends...More

    Worst experience! Workers there are very unfriendly, especially a woman in the reception. The room, the reception, the bathrooms are very dirty and in bad conditions. The beds and the mattress are bad quality. The "breakfast" is just a cup of bad coffee and a...More

    This accommodation is the perfect place for someone who's looking for a place near to the center of Boston. Rooms and bathroom are just essential. Breakfast is pretty poor. When booking the website says that you need to bring your own towels and sheets but...More

    I bet it was Braxton! You probably didn't get a name but see my review -- I did. I would bet money it's the same dude...he certainly fits the profile. And FTW I contacted management afterwards and heard nothing, zero, nada. Your situation warranted a reply even more than ours did. I certainly hope potential future guests take this into consideration.
