we rented a 3 bedroom/2 bath unit at 113 Beacon St. The location is great BUT, 2 of the beds consisted of mattresses laid on a raised floor. Our husbands could not even stand up! The bathrooms were in poor shape and in dire need of renovation. Much of the furniture was tired and worn. The ac window unit was...

5 friends and I stayed at 113 Beacon St, Apt 6front. First off, it was in a great section of Boston. Mostly walking distance to all locations. About 10-15 minute walk to Fanuiel Hall, little longer to the Fenway area. All very nice brownstones on the street with free parking after 6pm Friday. (big plus) For the location as well...

Beautiful brownstone, great location, decent size. Beds were very comfy. Living room was incredibly cramped when the blow up mattress tried to be inflated.

I stayed with family friends for the weekend and it was wonderful. Modern appliances and tons of beautiful lighting. It's right near the Boston Commons and all of the shops right along there and the building itself is lovely inside and out.

If you're a bit of a princess then this probably isn't for you, but if you want to stay in a location that's great for all Boston has to offer and you don't want to pay a fortune then it's certainly worth considering.

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
