Not long returned from a stay here. Large apartment and loved the rood terrace. Could do with freshening up everything but loved the layout and location. WiFi is awful and drops constantly. We also had no area guide that was promised when booking, the fire did not work and the tv remote was broken. These apartments could be amazing if...

If you're going to be in units 7, 8 or 9 and you're not physically fit, the stairs will be a struggle. There is no lift. Taking luggage up and down was tricky. We were in Unit 8 for 10 days (good comfy bed, tub with fixed shower over, ceiling fan which kept us cool, rear 'views' of nothing much...

Roof terrace is by far the best feature. Suite was fairly large, but furniture was a bit old. Bathroom wasn't the greatest (and bring your own shower gel and hair dryer), but the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and our experience was clean. If you planned on staying in the room a lot this is not the place for...

I am not sure if I am reading the reviews of the same place I just stayed at this past weekend because the place I stayed at exceeded my expectations. We stayed in unit #9 and were more than happy. The unit is very small, but if you are young and are expecting to be out and about all day,...

We stayed there last week. This is an unmanned hotel. You get a key code via email a day or two before you checkin in. Interesting concept. Overall, we found the accommodations acceptable. The location was great. Its in the South End, a few blocks from Copley Square, the Back Bay, the Prudential Center, and the "T" (green line). Within...

Great place to stay, walking distance to a lot of eateries locked in South End. Convenient to train station and restaurants. Clean, I would recommended lower floors, no elevator and stairs are steep. Nice rooftop patio with grill and great views.

Just got in about an hour ago from NYC. We are very pleased with the location......BUT, the cute little apartment style unit is stuffy, sticky and dirty. It doesn't take long looking around before you notice the grungy dishes, dust galore and fixtures ready to fall off. I didn't come here to clean.

We stayed here in room 6 for 5 nights. It was a little compact but had good kitchen facilities with everything you need to prepare your own meals. We loved the location, it was like your own home from home in Boston yet everything was so accessible with a train station less than 10mins walk. The views from the roof...

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
