We stayed here for two nights, the front desk staff is nice and friendly, but the room is very small, the bathroom is extremely dirty, the complimentary breadfast is bad! Is not worth the price!

Old Boston Hotel

Posted 14-Jul-2015
Pros: The location
Cons: update the rooms, paint them, put in new bedding, new tiles in bathrooms
Location: Right in downtown Boston- perfect location
The Boston Common Hotel has a great location - right in Back Bay/Copley area so it is easy to walk around to all the tourist spots. The hotel is old and the decor is dated. The rooms (almost all queen size beds) have old looking/tired bedding, small/not flat screen tv's, very dated bathrooms and barely enough room to move around. Note that there is no restaurant or bar or concierge service in hotel. One woman (they were all super nice) runs the front desk and appears to be the only one at the front of the hotel so if you are on hold for a long time its because she is wearing many hats.

Boston Commons

Good hotel. Reasonable price and free Internet and breakfast. . If you can handle 1960 decor, a good value for downtown Boston.

いいと思います。

Posted 7-Jul-2015
Pros: アメニティーと清潔感
Cons: Wi-Fiの接続環境
Location: バックベイ駅がすぐ近くにあり、飲食店や スーパーもそばにあるので立地は良い。 ホテルの周辺に大きな公園もある。
部屋の清潔さと基本的な設備に問題ありません。 ネット環境が良いとは言えませんでしたが・・・。 ただ、受付の接客も悪くないですし、何より立地が良いので 満足でした!機会があればまた利用したいと思います。

Basic Hotel, Great Location

Posted 6-Jul-2015
Pros: Location, good air conditioning.
Cons: Rooms could use some renovations, new paint.
Location: Orange and Green Lines, Copley Square Plaza, Prudential Centre, Boston Common.
We stayed for 4 nights in the hotel. It is a bit dated and you can tell it's an older hotel. However the room was very clean and comfortable. The A/C worked amazingly well. The cleaning staff was excellent and the room and linens were changed promptly. The continental breakfast was fairly basic with some toast, bagel, and pastry options, but it got the job done. The highlight of the hotel was its location. It is located minutes away from 2 different subway lines (Orange and Green) making it easy to get around Boston. Highly recommend getting the weekly pass for the T which is only $19 for unlimited rides. Overall, good basic hotel with a fantastic location for getting around the city.

Pros: location is excellent; rooms are quiet; water temperature and pressure are excellent; complimentary continental breakfast is sufficient; elevators run
Cons: carpeting in rooms could be replaced; bathrooms could be remodelled
Location: two minute walk from Copley Square; twenty minute walk from Fenway Park; subways on orange line and green line both within a couple of minutes walk; s
this is probably the only hotel I would stay at in Boston because the value for money can't be beat; check-in was very smooth and location of hotel is ideal for exploring Boston

very basic accommodations, but fit the bill for a short trip. They say wireless internet is only available in the lobby but I had a great signal on floor 8.
