“Perfect stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Even though this hotel is a bit further out and I stayed when it was maybe one of the coldest weeks in January but I had a lovely stay! The staff are so helpful- I was very impressed with their knowledge of the area! The room was spacious and had all the amenities! I plan on coming back to Boston as many times as I can and I will always try to stay here.

This is a great little hotel, especially if you are traveling with dogs. The staff is so friendly and the dog rooms are on the garden level, which is below the main floor so you don't need to get paranoid if the dogs woof a little or something. The neighborhood is OK and we walked the dogs down by the river, which has some grass and is residential. The price is definitely right for Boston and our stay there was very pleasant. Everyone was very accommodating and helpful. The only drawback was the trolley, which rumbled a bit starting early in the morning, which made our corgi a little nervous. But if you are looking for a clean, friendly, secure place to stay in Boston that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, this is your place. I'm sure it's great if you don't have dogs too! It's also easy to get anywhere in Boston from the hotel. We would stay here again.

First, it is a nicely renovated little hotel, but we have another former apartment building reincarnated as a hotel. Pros: rate, decor, cleanliness, and parking. Cons: location (weird, off the beaten track. Not really walking distance to anything touristy. "Steps away from Fenway?" Try a 30-minute walk. I did it.) Having a room at the front is not ideal, either, as the local commuter train runs all night directly outside; very loud. While some staff appeared friendly, at check-in they barely said ten words to me. Not a great first impression. Overall: rather nicely done property for a very good rate in Boston. If you're driving, no problem. If you're on foot, plan for cabs. And ask for a room in the back.

I have stayed here 3 times with my wife. This is a excellent value for Boston. Hotel is super clean, and modern, excellent staff. Very convenient T across street for access to downtown Boston. I would recommend this hotel to anybody about. This is simply a hidden jewel of a hotel in Boston.

Room Tip: The coffee in the café super good and super hot.

This hotel has very high quality interior furnishings that are nicely color coordinated. There are many thoughtful touches including a small shop where one can buy excellent croissants and sweet rolls, yoghurts and juice at reasonable prices, free newspaper, an excellent coffee maker, excellent wifi. The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. The neighborhood is not particularly attractive, but the hotel is perfect for visiting the Longwood hospital area as it is about 0.6 miles away. The price is about 60% of what one expect to pay for a similar quality room in central Boston. The hotel was unusually clean, new, and in good repair.

Highly recommended! Staff were very friendly and helpful, hotel was very clean and well equipped. Free wifi and ihome clock radios in each room are very handy.

While it's not centrally located, tram/bus stops are just outside and they are extremely regular and safe. We never waited longer than 5 mins even on a Sunday. Journey time is 20-30mins, given the significant cost savings this hotel offers this was no compromise for us.

I just spent five days at the EnVision Hotel in Boston, to visit my brother who was having medical treatment there.

Great place. There is a special hospital rate if you are there because of medical treatment (not necessarily your own). The rooms are not the Copley, okay, but they are very well appointed, have comfortable beds, and very clean. The staff is great--friendly and helpful.

One of my favorites--they have real hair dryers, not those little white ones attached to the wall that puff out barely warm air. There are nice warm and absorbent robes.

With the hospital rate, it was tremendous value for the money. I cannot believe that I was in such a nice place for so little money.

The hotel is right on a trolley line and a bus line. I flew in and didn't have a car and didn't need one. I could walk to spend time with my brother and to restaurants. If I had wanted to sight see, it would have been easy with public transit.

Room Tip: If noise bothers you, you might ask for a room nearer the back. Note trolley line mentioned above...
