B&B Agency of Boston- Prudential Center/Copley

Hi!

I booked a Studio Apartment with this Agency for the PAX East Convention in March. Anyone have any feedback on the area:

476 Columbus Ave. Boston MA.

Also has any past traveler utilized this agency for lodging?

Thanks!

Hi, it is in a very location in the South End, close great restaurants & shops. However, I googled the address to just see where exactly it was & evidently this is a B&B known as the Boston Christopher and the reviews here on TA are not that good.

Thanks so much for the info! It is my understanding that it is an apartment. I'll check out the reviews and investigate further!

How is the location in terms of public transpo? We arrive late at night (9pm) and have to make our way to the location but even during the day to go 1-2 miles takes a good amnt of time...

Thanks again!

If you're arriving by air, take a taxi.

It is an apartment in a building that is evidently classified as a b&b. You are close to the green line of subway (aka the "T") if you walk a few blocks north on West Newton St. there is a T stop on Huntington Ave. Here is a link for public transportation

Here's the link to where you are staying: http://www.bostonchristopher.com/

There are different sized rooms/apartments. All seem to have a kitchenette. Reviews are somewhat mixed, though the complaints seem to be about the climate control, slightly worn surroundings, and carrying luggage up stairs. Great location. I would recommend you call them to confirm your reservation since you didn't make it directly with them.

We are considering this agency as well but in the back bay area. Did you have a positive experience with the agency?

We used this agency to book the Boston Christopher and had no problems at all. They contacted us with the key codes a week beforehand and replied to a couple of queries very promptly.
