Reviewed 18 September 2016

Years of USA holiday experience has taught me that as you are out sightseeing all day everyday; it is not worth paying for luxury hotels. Hotel Boston fitted the bill for being reasonably priced, for having a clean and comfy bed, and facilities for making teas and coffees plus a basic breakfast. I have wanted to visit Boston for a...

Very convenient to both Boston University and Boston College, right on the Green Line. Very large room and very good, free breakfast in the morning which includes a variety of muffins, bagels, cereals, scrambled eggs and breakfast meat, make your own waffles, yogurts, fruit and probably more. There are a variety of restaurants withing walking distance. The only downfall for...

We were a family of 5. We found the hotel to be quite affordable. There are few shops nearby which gave us the chance to buy some snacks. The breakfast was good but room a bit crowded. The train is right across but the trip to the touristic neighborhoods of Boston can take some time. All in all however it...

We had a room with two queen beds. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was a tiny kitchenette which was convenient. The free breakfast was good, very much like a chain hotel breakfast. The location was outside the center of Boston, but very close to the T which gets you there in about 30 minutes. My only complaint was...

Room was clean and had a microwave and refrigerator which was nice. Hot breakfast was more than we expected. Only complaint was we stayed on the first floor and I could hear the people walking around on the second floor all night long. I would ask for second floor next time. I also didn't realize we had to pay for...

This hotel was one of the more affordable that we found in Boston. It is around a 2 block? walk to a train stop, a few blocks walk from a good restaurant and shopping area. The room is pretty standard, maybe a little bit shabby as in it could use a few touch ups. I'd suggest getting to breakfast early,...
