"Location and price overcome much"
Bed was incredibly hard and breakfast was dreadful, though the coffee was good at breakfast. The availability of parking is a plus. Either the neighbor had the TV on very loudly or the walls are thin - take earplugs. I would stay here again and plan to go out for breakfast. Not sure what I could do about the bed though - drink a lot in the evening and […] pass out? Cleanliness is important and they did well on this. There was ample hot water and ample lighting once the fluorescent bulbs warmed up. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Superb location and good price. Because of thin walls and old construction could hear televisions and conversations in neighboring rooms and every toilet flush in neighboring floors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for couples"
Very nice.....in the middle of newbury street shops yet quiet....close to Fenway....close to subway system....shopping...etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful time there--thanks. We loved the hotel and the customer service was great. I would only suggest that they have better, fluffier pillows!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for Boston sightseers"
Location is ideal, both for getting to many different tourist sites, and because it is in such a safe neighborhood. I'm not an experienced traveler so I recommend checking other reviews besides mine, but my teenaged son and I could not find anything at all wrong with this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay to enjoy A Boston experience"
Great location, friendly staff, nice parking option behind the hotel ($20.00) but worth it and a delicious breakfast included.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was awesome, we loved the breakfast each morning, and we liked having a safe in the room. The rooms were clean and large enough, but there was not any/much storage space-no drawers,no counter space in the bathroom, and our TV only worked on a couple channels. While we were there, the elevator broke down a few times, but was repaired in […] a timely manner. The hotel reminded us of a "European" hotel with the stairs and small size. Overall it was a positive experience-we would stay there again. The staff was great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very close to Earls Court underground station and is in a pleasant and safe neighborhood. The room is a little small compared to US standards but is clean and has a refrigerator and microwave and plates etc. It is reasonably priced and I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect place to stay!"
The room is clean and functional. Breakfast is very nice. staffs are friendly and helpful. Convenient location. This is the place to stay in Boston.Genuine Expedia guest review
Super cute and charming!!! Perfect Boston hotel!!! Would defiantly stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Little Gem in the Back Bay"
We lived in Boston for several years, and return for a variety of reasons. We found the Newbury Guest House searching on Expedia, planning for college tours. We had not heard of it before (but probably walked past it on every trip to the area). In the past we have stayed at large hotels in the Back Bay or Cambridge. After reading the reviews on Expedia, […] we felt comfortable enough that, worse case scenario, the location alone was worth it for our needs. Not only was the location great- the room was perfect, large enough to manuever with our luggage and growing collection of shopping bags from teenage girls. As with any old building in the area there are quirks- which in my books give a structure character. The hotel staff were professional and accomodating- without the formality of a large hotel, (which could be misconstrued as aloof by some hotel visitors.) The breakfast, which was included in the price for the room, and served in the adjacent crepe restaurant was pretty basic and safe- yet hit the spot with options for all (pancake afficiados rave about the ones served here- I am not a pancake guy- but they were certainly better then most). Overall my family and I agree we would definitely stay again as it hit the perfect balance for our needs. One more thing to mention- coffee was available almost all day and evening in the lobby- and good coffee at that- which is the type of touch that gives extra points in my book.

I found this hotel to be a refreshing change from the cookie cutter big hotels nearby. The desk clerks were not overly friendly but were responsive with every request. The free breakfast was better than usual fare with some decent protein choices. The crepary was excellent. Of particular note was Chuck the bartender waiter that was like an old friend […] after conversation over a meal or two. This hotel is a great value for the neighborhood and I highly recommend it for both rustic charm, cleanliness, and food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the best deal in Boston. It's close to Hynes Convention Center and the best shopping in the city. Chuck in the attached crepery is quite hospitable. Breakfast was great. I spent six nights and enjoyed the homey atmosphere. The building is more like an old house. I really liked it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It has it all.....restaurants, shopping, entertain"
The is our 4th stay in two years....We love it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"cozy hotel for a short visit"
Considering the price we paid, I think this hotel was very good. We are very happy to utilize the expedia flight and hotel combo. The location is also very good, so that we could go everywhere by walking or subway.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were very happy with the guesthouse! Rooms were very nice and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Being on the street side was a bit noisy. Will stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A four night stay for a class at MassArt and it was the perfect location. My husband worked remotely in the room which was perfect. Wifi connection not the best, lots of drops during the day and terribly slow at night but he managed. Close to the T, shopping, great resturants. Room was nice, bed was pretty hard and by day three was tough on the back […] but again doable. We had an off-season rate would be hesitant to pay full fare in season but that's the cost of being at a great location. We would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Why stay in a hotel when you can stay here?"
Loved it. Beautiful room. Great breakfast. Coffee and tea downstairs 24/7. What more could I ask for except blackout shades on the windows.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were so happy with our stay. Gorgeous location and surrounding shops and restaurants. Also beautiful and charming inside. Our room was the perfect size for the two of us and looked out onto Newbury St. I looked forward to going "home" after the business day. The Creperie next door can be reached through the hotel, and their crepes are on par with […] those I've eaten in Paris. Breakfast is served in The Creperie every morning, complimentary--so full a spread and delicious. I will stay at the Newbury Guest House again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An Upscale Place to Stay on Newbury St"
This was a perfect place to getaway from the huge chain hotel experience. The location on Newbury was perfect for excellent dining and shopping experiences. Also convenient to major tourist attractions. Loved our very spacious room and bathroom. The sitting area at the bay window was the perfect place view the activity on Newbury Street below. The complimentary […] breakfast was excellent-two hot entres in addition to continental breakfast fare. Would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable hotel for travelers."
This is my second stay in here and it was as awesome as the first one. I highly recommend it for single people traveling for business (like me) or for couples who want to spend some time shopping and looking at the fancy scenery.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, Comfy, easy, unpretentious"
Have dinner at Tapeo or Sonsie , lunch at Cafeteria, coffee at Pavement, then shop -- these and more within a five minute distance. At day's end, come home to a sweet place. If you're into "fancy"', this isn't it, but it had everything I needed and the people were very genuinely nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in Back Bay"

"Perfect place for a quick trip to Boston"
I came to Boston for a graduate interview, so I was there by myself for a few days. I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Newbury Guest Hotel, and in my opinion, it was the best place I could have chosen. The hotel itself was charming and private, and the staff was extremely helpful. The location was by far my favorite part. Newbury Street has tons […] of restaurants, stores and small shops to keep anyone entertained. Though I was in Boston alone, I always had somewhere to go and new places to check out. I highly recommend this hotel if you're really interested in appreciating the city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent stay, highly recommend the French restaurant on the flower leve. Staff was excellent, will stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very pleasant stay in the heart of Back Bay"
Staff is very attentive and friendly. Breakfast was solid and the Creperie attached to the hotel has a bar which makes it very convenient for one to go to prior to or after going out to the theatre, etc. Hotel room was spacious and clean and had a comfortable bed. Would like to have in-room movie choices as well as the tv but when you are in Boston, […] you are there to see Boston. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Newbury Guest House 2/2013"
I stayed two nights. This hotel is an awesome find tucked in the back bay. Close to the T, plenty of shopping and restaurants. The Creperie next door has a great free breakfast and Diedre at the bar is great. Carla at the front desk was most welcoming. Definitely would recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect convention location for Hynes"
the NGH was perfect for a convention at the Hynes Convention center. It is only a block and a half away and a much better location for restaurants (and shopping I suppose, if that is a goal) than the giant hotels attached to the convention center. The is probably the best deal in Boston, and again the location is just amazing. It feels like you are […] part of the Back Bay neighborhood (such a great place to just walk around and look at the architecture). It is an old building but it is well kept, clean and feels very comfortable. I have come to expect hotel rooms in old buildings in big cities to be very small but I was shocked at how spacious this room was and while the big bay window looked out into the alley, it was a wide, sunny neighborhoody alley rather than what you might expect. The included breakfast was in the restaurant next door and while it was simple and the same every morning it was done well (bacon, eggs, pancakes, continental faire). Everyone there was helpful and friendly. I will definitely stay there again if I'm in Boston again. Even if not at Hynes, it is a few blocks from the Copley Square and Hynes metro stops so I found it easy to get around the city when I needed to. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Snowed in with Nemo!!"
A quaint hotel, perfect location on my favorite street in Boston, Newbury Street! Fantastic crepe restaurant attached...nice warm "free" breakfast included in price. Only discomfort we had was the bed and pillows were rather hard, and we were in a very small room with a little window and poor view for four days! We tried many times to switch rooms, […] knowing some were open, but no one ever followed through. Overall, we would stay here again as the location and staff were wonderful...we would just request a room on the front of the building!! Enjoy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and homely"
Came in the day before the blizzard if 2013. The hotel kindly blocked off rooms and allowed their guests to stay an extra night since no one could go anywhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beds are way too hard"
I thought the location, services and condisiton of the hotel was excellent. however, I kept waking up all night long because the beds are too hard. This created pressure points and I needed to keep tossing and turning the entire nights I stayed there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location and great price. Very accommodating staff. Won't hesitate to return and recommend to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location; good value"
The hotel was in a wonderful neighborhood, only a few blocks to a "T" station so it was very convenient to get around the city. The breakfast that was included was very nice....plenty of choices. My only complaint was that the heat was turned up in my room and all the common areas, so I was HOT everywhere. I had to keep the window open all night to […] be able to sleep. I would definitely recommend this hotel for price and location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Love this place"
Wonderful quiet little place. Rooms are small but clean with comfortable beds. Issues with cable might be a problem for some. Staff available and attentive but not in your face.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I liked it, specially its location, although our room was noisy because it was near the elevator and the bathroom is small.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location, hotel was very nice. Only problems had was when I called for room service the women on the phone laughed at me and said she was to busy, no sorry or anything. Apart from that I had a wonderful stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice Stay"
I enjoyed my stay at Newbury, although they did lose my reservation which caused some tense moments. The location is perfect, the place was clean, and overall enjoyable. I wish the rooms had a secondary lock, especially for when I'm traveling alone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for a mini vacation"
We were given a room on the fourth floor. On the first night my girlfriend stabbed her foot on a tack nail sticking out of the rug. They promptly moved us to another room which was pleasing but it was a rough start, other than that the staff was extremely helpful every time we wanted to go somewhere they were able to make good recommendations,print […] out maps, and call places to make sure that they were open since we were there during Christmas and there's an awesome little grocery store about half a block away called DeLuca's market. It was the perfect Christmas getaway. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice experience for a traveler. super convenient!"
the location is super good! almost everything sightseeing is within walking distance if you live here. and the environment in hotel is pretty nice. the staff is friendly and the breakfast is good. it looks so beautiful outside. and you can find so many restaurants nearby.the only disappointment is that I can still feel some wind from outside when standing […] by the closed window. and i see a ladybug on pillow one day. anyway, the overall experience is pretty neat.

"Older, charming hotel"
I would love to stay here every time I am in Boston. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. The inclusion of breakfast makes this hotel a wonderful deal - meals are better than a breakfast at any area coffee store. During my stay, there was a coupon for BOGO crepe at the attached restaurant (where breakfast is served); it […] was a good add-on to the stay. Because the hotel is in an older building, there are some small wear issues - staircases that lean - but that actually adds to the charm. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location, Location, Location"
Location, location, location! This guest house is right in the middle of the lovely and active Newbury Street shopping district, and allowed us to walk to almost any sight we wanted to see in Boston. In particular we walked several times along the Fen to the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Boston Symphony Hall, and the Isabella Steward Gardener Museum. […] In the other direction we even took evening strolls to the Commons and Beacon Hill. Although we could not make coffee in our room (which we missed), there is a great coffee house, the "Wired Puppy", right across the street. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
