Stayed in the Bunker Hill room on second floor. Very narrow but clean and adequate for the overnight stay. It was quiet and close to popular places like Kenmore Square that had eateries like Eastern Standard. No breakfast was served although there is a coffee room. Would stay here again. The front desk is open from 8 am -7 pm.

Having travelled quite extensively and stayed in a variety of places worldwide I can only say that this stands out all by itself. I read other reviews and took it to mean quirky and old fashioned. We stayed in either #50 or#51 ( the one named "Symphony"). 82 stairs up (the large stains on the carpet allow you to be... More

This place is filthy and disgusting. The rooms are not cleaned daily or it would appear even weekly. The bathroom was a tiny shower and toilet combo which has not been cleaned in months-the walls are streaked with who knows what, and I showered with my shoes on - the lampshades are full of fluff- there does not appear to...

It is an old house that has been remodeled to guest house. I had read others complaint about smell and filth and must say it is not true.

We stayed for four nights in the Revere room on second floor. It had clearly been part of a larger, grander room which had been sub divided and the wooden pillars which remained looked incongruous and awkward in the smaller room. The house itself looked elegant and interesting if a bit faded; it is in a very good location for... More

463 Beacon Street is right on-target for what travelers to Boston need, except if you are in the singles on 2nd or 3rd floor. First the positives: great location a block from Commonwealth Avenue on lovely Beacon Street, with its row of grand brownstones. 463's lobby and common areas are charming and crisp, with fresh wedgewood-blue walls and period photographs...

I never saw more terrible accomodation in my life. Dirty, bad smell, brown dirty bed sheets. The prices does not correspond to quality. The lowest quality which is possible. Ugly hotel in old but not ket well house. Dirty dirty and terrible. Do bot go there. It was my greatest mistake to stay there.

I stayed in one of the smaller rooms 6 months ago, which was MUCH cheaper ($204 for 3 nights, rather than $227 for one night!). I was hoping the larger rooms would be AT LEAST as clean and pleasant. Sadly, the standard was FAR lower--unacceptably dirty, dilapidated, uncomfortable, smelly, and deficient, both in terms of security (the entrance door could... More

The room was filthy!! The light fixture in the bathroom was hanging like it was about to fall down. The ceiling in the bathroom was also leaking from the bathroom above. Not worth the $ or the unhealthy exposure to who knows what. Worse than a tenement. Checked out a day early because it was so awful. The manager Janet... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
