It's hard to imagine a nicer setting for a B&B stay in Boston's South End. The B&B is in a block of row houses with a narrow park running down most of the middle of the street. We had a very large room on the third floor with a very modern and spacious bathroom with a glassed-in shower. The only different aspect to us - as we are used to B&B's which have resident inn-keepers - is that while this B&B does have resident inn-keepers, they were often not around and sometimes not even available by phone. That, and the lack of any readily available near-area street map, made it a little harder to get oriented with basic information (although there was a binder in our room that did have very good recommendations as to nearby places to eat). Had there been more attentive inn-keepers on hand, we could probably have avoided having to personaly confront extremely noisy guests one night who were yelling, running up and down stairs etc. A continental breakfast was provided, but after one morning we had our subsequent breakfasts at one of the cafes recommended in the binder because when we went down the second morning it was apparent that the wrapped muffins, bagels etc. were not all that fresh, given that one muffin was covered in mold.
