    very nice hotel, great rooms, and perfect location on Newbury Street in Back Bay; great vakue for your money

    completely useless wireless connection, they should either fix it, or not even offer it beacuse it's embarassing, you can't even get to view simple websites, as it's so slow

    The location of the hotel was excellent for shops and restaurants. It also had a more homely and intimate feel than the hotel chains that one normally experiences in cities.

    Having been converted from town houses there was a soundproofing issue between rooms, especially as TV's were wall mounted.

    Ambiance Some of the guest service personnel were superb Location in the city Breakfast location/decor of the restaurant downstairs Air conditioning Cleanliness The safe in the closet Borrowing a video for free for one evening the bed linens

    Breakfast food was mediocre - add more choices. Desk personnel should be more consistently helpful and cheerful - we had one superb person we interacted with - the others were so-so

    Newbury Guest House was a great alternative to the large hotels. The personal treatment and relaxed atmosphere was a welcome experience over the more impersonal experiences of the large chains. The staff was great - helpful & courteous. The room was larger than in a chain hotel and nicely appointed. It was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. I would go back in a heartbeat.

    No real complaints. At the time we stayed they were under construction so there was a little noise during the day, but we were out most of the time.

    Perfect location on one of the coolest streets in Boston.
