Great value and location

Posted 20-Oct-2016
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable.
Location: Near Copley Place and Copley Square, easy walk to Boston Commons and the beginning of the Freedom Trail.
The location was very convenient for the purposes of our stay in Boston. We were able to walk to major attractions and restaurants.

good location, filthy hotel, staff not helpful

Posted 18-Oct-2016
Location: great location, within walking distance of most of Boston, shopping, restaurants, Fenway park, library, Trinity church, Boston common, seaport
good location, filth everywhere you look, even though the hotel needs major updates, the mold, dirt and grime could be cleaned up in the bathroom, the elevators and entryway. stains on the cloth shower curtain. front desk didn't even know if the solarium area was open?? the printers didn't work in the business center. disappointing

ダウンタウンの便利な場所に位置しています。 アムトラックや地下鉄の駅に近く、空港からもタクシーで約20分程です。 入り口がわかりづらいので要注意です。

helpful staff, good position.

Posted 12-Oct-2016
Pros: helpful staff and clean room
Cons: decor need a re-fit
hotel is in need of a refit - it's old condition should be remedied, but in twerms of value for money it's pretty good. We enjoyed our stay.

Hotel bem localizado porém decadente.

Posted 12-Oct-2016
Hotel bem localizado,já teve seus dias de glória,porém mal conservado na forração e banheiros ,deixa um pouco a desejar na limpeza . Por isso o preço mais barato em relação aos outros na região .

Surprisingly old hotel

Posted 26-Sep-2016
Pros: Temperature and quiet.
Cons: The whole thing needs a restore or update. Accessibility was a big issue (and we are fully able bodied). This would be a nightmare if disabled.
Location: Right in a prime location, walking distance to Boston Public Library, Boston Common, the Skywalk, Fenway, etc.
I stayed in 7 different hotels over the past 9 days and out of all of them this was close to the bottom in terms of experience. The room was very quiet and a good temperature - the only room in our entire stay we didn't have to adjust. So this was good for sleeping. However the hotel was much much older in appearance than portrayed online, both in decor and amenities. WIFI is only available in the main lobby. Furniture was pre-1960s, as was the bathroom that was small, dark, and had limited water pressure. Staff was tolerable. I couldn't see any mobility access - we had to struggle with luggage into a small side door and stairs to get up to the lobby - no other entrances we could see.

Affordable hotel within walking distance

Posted 15-Sep-2016
Pros: The staff is available 24 hours and is super friendly and helpful.
Cons: Updating the rooms with new decor and a nicer bed would do wonders!
Location: Location is great; lots of restaurants, bars, cafes nearby. T line for commuting is right around the corner.
The Boston Common Hotel was the most reasonable priced hotel in the city (and I think I actually got a sale on it). It's close to the T and not too bad of a walk to the gardens. The staff there is EXCELLENT. The hotel itself is outdated and the bed is pretty standard and comparable to a dorm room. Amenities are slim; not even a gym. If you're just there to sleep, it will save you some money!
