Three old high school friends from Western Canada went to Boston for a week long holiday/reunion, and found the John Jeffries House on the web. The location was unbelievable; we walked to so many historic Boston locations, soaking up the amazing ambiance of this safe, clean and friendly city. JJ House is located at the foot of historic Charles street,...

I would have to say that the main asset this place has is it's location. Right by Charles St/MGH on the red line just over the road. It is a pleasant walk up Charles (or is it Cambridge?) to the Common indicating how close you are to the hub of things. Despite its proximity to some main throroughfares there was...

For three ladies from Kansas and their first time in Boston, John Jeffries House was one of the highlights of our trip. The staff was extremely accommodating in answering our many questions about how to navigate around Boston to see all the historic places. The room was very clean and had all the amenities but still maintain a historical atmosphere....

After lugging our bags up the entry stairs, we checked in to find that we were in a basement room.Since we were there for 4 nights, the following morning, I asked to be moved and we were but of course we had to pack up before leaving for the day. Two days in that room and we packed up again...

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Boston and, for us, John Jeffries House was ideal accommodation. Its location, close to the Charles River, Beacon Hill and the Red Line "T" station, couldn't have been better. Our compact one-bedroom apartment was well furnished and the living room had a great view. The bathroom was large and well equipped. The cooking facilities...

Would like to give a better than average, but can't. The hotel does not turn the heat on until October. Our room was cold. Front desk offered more blankets, but we did not need them. We ordered dinner from a nearby restaurant which has an arrangement to deliver to the rooms. A new service from the hotel. Food was very...

John Jeffries House, I really, really, really wanted to like you. You are the best deal in Boston. The hotel is clean and amazingly located. By and large the encounters with the support staff were great, people were very friendly and attentive. I was totally willing to overlook the somewhat thin walls, the bad beds, and the weird basement room...

As soon as we entered we knew this was a lovely place. Beautiful, tasteful decor, exceptionally clean, courteous staff, just all you can ask for in a B&B. Close to places to eat although an in-room bistro service is also available during the week. It's not a 5 star hotel with all the facilities available, but it is highly recommended...

Best described as an inn rather than a hotel, the Jeffries offers hospitality and a wonderful Charles St. location at the bottom of Beacon Hill. Interior rooms are the best for quiet. Kitchen is helpful although continental breakfast and all day coffee and fruit give it the touch of a B&B. My room looked new although bed and chairs were...

I was in Boston finishing up my job there before moving out of town and, after sleeping for a week on the hard, bare floor of an apartment stripped of furniture, I desperately wanted to sleep comfortably on my last night in town. The John Jeffries House was recommended to me by the owner of my other favorite B&B in...

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
