“Great homey location”
Reviewed 25 October 2012 via mobile

This guest house is in a nice location near tons of shopping and food, as well as access to transportation and tours, i.e. Red Trolley, Duck Tours, etc. Very nice hot breakfast. Only minor issue is that due to the age of the building, the walls are a tad thin so could hear neighbor's tv etc. Liked the Back Bay neighborhood.

I was there early October and found it quite quaint and comfortable but because I had a room facing the street, it was extremely noisy. The breakfast was hearty and it was more than coffee and roll. The staff I encountered (John and Peter (I think this was his name) were extremely courteous and helpful. All in all I would recommend this charming guest house. The location is excellent with many restaurants and chic boutiques.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the street were noisy.

Just back from 4 nights in Boston. We wanted to be close to Newbury St. and this was by far the best value for the area. The hotel was very clean, staff was extremely nice and helpful and the bed was very comfortable. Rooms only have 2 dresser drawers and bathroom was modern but very small. We did hear the person above us showering early every morning as we were still trying to sleep and felt they could change up the breakfast as they serve the exact same items every day but we would definitely stay there again. Loved all the cute shops and interesting restaurants on the street as well as the character of the area. Close walk or inexpensive cab ride to so many things.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September. It was clean, cute and the breakfast was good. I loved the character of the old building. The best part was the location. Newbury street is filled with shopsvand restaurants. The rooms were small, but that is expected in the city. The Newbury Guest House is a great place to stay and the staff was very nice.

Very friendly hotel in a great location, close to shops and some lovely restaurants. Breakfast was very good, attentive staff, clean room and comfortable bed. Just missing tea making facilities in room, but it was available in Lobby. All in all would recommend.

The Newbury Guest House is in a great location for viewing Boston. The room was spacious and clean and a decent breakfast was included in the adjoining cafe. Newbury Street is very interesting with its restaurants, shops and galleries. It is a good walk to the beautiful park, the Freedom Trail, Quincy Market etc. also close to the Prudential Building and Mall.

Room Tip: If you want quiet the rooms in the back are best although the view isn't so good, whereas you wi...
