Location Close to restaurants
The guest house was very convenient for access to major shops and a large number of places of interest to tourist. The food at dinner in the bistro was very good and the availability of a discount was very attractive.
The fact that there was no variation in food available for breakfast.
Excellent location. We had a problem with a damp patch caused by a leak from an upstairs room. We were moved to another room and given a generous discount on our bill.
Breakfast only fair. Buffet is the same every day.
The Concierge was very helpful arranging dinner reservations and transportation.
Excellent location, easy walking to parks, restaurants and a longer but still do-able walk to Historical Boston. Staff were very obliging.
Breakfast was included but not very appetising.
The weather but that couldn't be helped
It was charming, clean and comfortable. Loved the location.
I didn't think the hot entrees at breakfast were that good.
My favorite place in Back Bay Boston.
Aloof staff. Rooms plain. Nothing extra which one expects in a boutique hotel. Cookies would be nice. Breakfast cold. No cereals. I've had better breakfAsts at Hampton Inns
The Newbury Guest house has a great location right in the middle of trendy Newbury St Back Bay. The selection of cafes/restaurants seems endless. It is in easy walking distance of Beacon hill, Boston Gardens, Boston Common, the lovely Charles River and Fenway Park.
Street was noisy until late on Saturday night but we expected this. There is a lift however there are still stairs to negotiate with heavy suitcases. Limited selection for the complimentary breakfast and then limited places open for breakfast if you miss out.
The room was clean and the Wifi worked
I don't believe the Deluxe room I requested is what I got (more Standard based on the pictures I had seen online). Was in the back of the building. The staff at most was accomodating, no way near friendly. The breakfast was a challenge both mornings. The first mornig the food kept running out and it was barely enough seating. The second day we had to deal with bad tourist/guest staying at your hotel. The kid was running around and knocked over two glasses that broke on the floor.
The location is ideal for short visits to Boston. Parking was available for a reasonable price. Within walking distance of many restaurants as well as shops. Selfhelp breakfast is sufficient for everyday need. Large safe in room.
The bathroom is small and internet can be on and off from time to time. Coffeemaker in room would be nice.
The room on the third floor was quite and away from the street noise. The included breakfast was quite substantial. And the location close to Back Bay shopping, a short walk to the Amtrak station, and Copley Square is ideal for leisure and business travelers. The Newbury Guest House is more like a small European Boutique Hotel than a typical guest house, a welcome alternative to the large chains in the area.
I don't have any complaints.
Great location within easy walking distance to all attractions . Lots of restaurants in the vicinity.
A bit pricy but u pay for the location. No tea coffee facilities in the rooms. Basic but tasty breakfast.
Friendly, helpful staff. Location in Back Bay with convenient Logan Express link from the airport. Within easy walking distance of many locations.
Staff pleasant, bed comfy, breakfast fine. Great location from which to explore Boston. Good spot, recommend Newbury GH.
Nice location and convenient reserved parking. Small (32 rooms) very reminiscent of older European hotels typically located in center of city. Very convenient to public transportation. Many shops pubs and eateries in easy walking distance. Included breakfast was very adequate.
I would not hesitate to stay again and highly recommend Newbury Guest house to anybody travelling to Boston. The location is perfect with a pleasant walk to the city centre. The rooms were clean and comfortable and surprisingly quiet. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
This is not a biggy! But the reception area is not very welcoming infact it looks like a box stuck in the middle of a very large room! Were it should be a focal point.
Location was great,everything you need in a vacation is right out your door.Shopping,sightseeing,transit around the corner,restaurants,Walk to Fenway Park no problem,(if your able)Museums,Parks,and value markets.down the street. Would stay again!
Typical street noise in this type of hotel.If only all visitors were respectful of others,seems some cultures don't care about other peoples feelings in room or out in public! But that is the world we live in today!
the location, hotel decor, comfort and all the cafes, shops, beautiful place
The room was comfortable and modern. The fact that I could park the car in the alley was very convenient.
location and price
Back alley noise early morning
Location and comfort.
Reception not friendly. Air con too noisey - had a fault. Breakfast although OK, surprisingly basic. All this made me feel overcharged. Not good value
Staff were very kind and helpful. The location is perfect for Boston and the Guest House is small enough to feel like a personalized B&B and large enough to provide four star service.
Pillows are not at all comfortable although beds were delicious. Rooms directly above the restaurant kitchen smell like food.
wifi personnel's little competency breakfast and that you could not take it on the outside terrasse
