The Newbury Guest House was a comfortable, quaint brownstone in a lovely setting. It provided a "neighborhood" experience, while being close to the "T" line from which we accessed all areas of Boston easily. Our room overlooked the street, which enabled us to watch the hustle and bustle of the people below. A fireplace added a "colonial" feel. Our room contained the best king size mattress I have slept on in a hotel in years, a table and two chairs, refrigerator, safe and flat screen tv. The bathroom was clean, with a tub/shower combination. A nice sized closet with an iron was provided. The staff was lovely and helpful at all times. We had a delightful stay at the Newbury Guest House.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the street as it adds to the experience.

We arrived in for our first trip to Boston and booked to stay at the the Newbury for 3 nights.

The B&B is situated in the quiet and pleasant Back Bay district and offers a really good vantage point for exploring the city on foot. We thought it offered a really good compromise between somewhere nice and relatively quiet to stay, whilst still being within 10-15 mins walk of most parts of the city.

The room was simply furnished and a bit basic but if all you want is somewhere which is affordable and comfortable, then this should be one to add to your list.

I booked a two-night stay for the last week of September back in early July. With just 10 days before our visit to Boston the hotel cancelled our booking. The reason? The hotel had upgraded its booking system to "improve customer satisfaction" (well it didn't improve mine!) and our booking, made nearly three months before, was allegedly the last one made so we were jettisoned (I didn't believe that then and I don't believe it now).

I learnt all this by phoning the hotel - we had to call them as the less-than-helpful Eddie advised that he couldn't dial International so we paid out to try to have our reservation reinstated. Not a hope. Even worse, Eddie suggested that he contact local hotels do that we could stay in the Back Bay area for the same amount. But that was the very last that we heard from our friend Eddie, other than to confirm that he had received my email address so that he could respond (and he had received it). It was pretty clear on my third phone call that he just wanted this problem to go away. Prices for a last minute booking have, of course, skyrocketed so we are severely out of pocket.

Cold hearted, amateurish management. If that's the level of service before you arrive then think twice. Best advice is to avoid - a booking here may cost you more than you think.

Our room was very comfortable, small by American standards though typical per European standards. No coffee maker in the room which took some getting used to, though coffee was available by 7 am every morning in the restaurant. Breakfast was included in the room fee. Great staff, clean and comfortable rooms, great location. The owner was generous with his time in sharing local history if asked, very interesting gentlemen. At the end of the day, cookies greeted guests on return. For a comfortable, friendly alternative to a hotel, this is a top notch choice.

Loved everything about this property. Nicely located in a bustling and fun part of the city. Good value compared with general prices in Boston. If you like running or walking for exercise it is very near terrific running/cycling paths on the edge of the river. Tight parking but not unexpected in Boston. The breakfast (included) was fine.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking Newbury Street. A little noisy but got quiet by 10:00.
