My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here for a convention at the Hynes Covention Center. It is a very short walk -- about 1 1/2 blocks. The room had adequate lighting, especially the bathroom. The room had a mini-fridge and a hair dryer, but no coffee maker. However, one can get coffee and hot water for tea in the...

The Newbury guest house was a welcome relief as soon as we walked into our room. King size bed table and chairs, with a great view of bustling and vibrant Newbury Street. Connecting to wifi was a breeze and connection was acceptable. The staff at the guest house were knowledgable and very nice. The breakfast was the same each day,...

This was a great value guesthouse located in one of Boston's quintessential Victorian brownstones. Newbury Street is a great base for exploring Boston and some of it's many great places to eat. The room was a good size (though the bathroom a little dated) and always clean, the staff were friendly and approachable, and the free breakfast in the morning...

This is a very nice hotel, in an excellent location. The staff was really helpful, specially the manager, Mr. D'Angelo. The rooms are reasonably large (we have seen 3 of them) and nicely decorated, but are pretty clear at night; bathrooms are OK but a bit small. The heating system, however, did not work well; the staff tried to solve...

I stayed here for 4 nights in mid-December for business. I chose this hotel for its proximity to the Turnpike, walkability in Boston and cost (there was a 4th night free deal on Expedia). Boston is known for its brownstones and this adorable property is housed in one of them. The staff was polite and helpful, but not intrusive which...

Had a couple of days staying here between business trips and was pleased I chose to stay here. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful about information on the area. My room was nicely furnished and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. Basic complimentary breakfast service got me off to a good start each day. The location...

We thank you for your kind remarks about the staff, our service and our rooms. We often recommend Charlie's and Stephanie's to our guests so it is great to know we can rely on them. The staff of the restaurant in the basement of the building is, as I am sure you know, not managed by the hotel. We apologize...

My husband and I stayed at the Newbury Guest House for four nights in November of 2011. Call me weird, but I originally booked it because it looked kinda haunted. It isn't, but our stay there was far from a disappointment. As we waited to check in, I overheard some guests remark: "we stay here every time we come to...

When you want to feel at home in a city like Boston stay at Newbury Guest House. This was my second time experiencing not only the beauty of Newbury Street where Newbury Guest House is nestled but the hospitality experienced by Peter D'Angelo and others. The rooms are luxurious and affordable, the staff friendly and helpful, and parking when available....

This place was a nightmare. We checked in, and the second i stepped in the elevator which smelled like cheech & chong had just been there, i knew we were in trouble.

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.
