    Very clean, very nice room. Enough room for four people (2 per bed). Great view of the surround area and very close to Fenway park. Overall we were very happy with the hotel. They have a gorgeous lobby and the staff was very friendly!

    Older building with charm. Clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and answered our questions kindly. Easy and close walk to metro, Trinity Church, Boston Library, Old South Church and plenty of restaurants. Would stay again.

    Probably queen. Very comfortable. We had a couch and requested a mini fridge. Room kind of dingy but great location and price. Went twice.

    Walk out the Dartmouth St exit of Back Bay station and turn right. Half a block down is Stuart St. Turn right one block and the hotel is right on the corner of Stuart and Trinity place.
