Perfect location

Posted 24-Aug-2015
Perfect location. Had small old rooms but we weren't in Boston to spend time in the room! Just what we needed and was clean.

Too expensive for what you get

Posted 24-Aug-2015
Pros: The location
Cons: Room commodities (not cooler, old furniture, few drawers), old and dirty carpets, bad smells.. a lot!
Location: The prudential, Boston common and Back Bay station. Very good location
The hotel is close to the Prudential, Back Bay Station and the Boston Common. So it has a convenient localization. But the rooms look really old (not in the good way), dirty and small. The carpet smelled funny (neither in the good way) and in general everything gave the impression of dirty and poor maintenance. The breakfast was normal, nothing great. But for the price, I expected A LOT more.

Central location to the things we were doing

Posted 21-Aug-2015
We were very busy site seeing so we basically used the room to shower and sleep. The hotel staff was very helpful in giving correct information we asked about.

Comodo in pieno centro

Posted 18-Aug-2015
Albergo situato in zona molto comoda per poter visitare a piedi tutta la zone turistica. La camera era spaziosa e pulita. Il bagno è un po piccolo ma pratico. La colazione prevede : caffè, The ,succhi di frutta, paste dolci, muffin, marmellata. Il personale dell'albergo è stato molto disponibile. Ottima soluzione qualità prezzo.

Ideal location, hotel feels a little tired

Posted 17-Aug-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Decor, breakfast.
Location: Everything in downtown Boston.
Great location to explore downtown Boston, but feels very tired and in need of refurbishment. The continental breakfast was very ordinary.

Close to everything

Posted 15-Aug-2015
Pros: Proximity to facilities and amenities.
Cons: Walls have to be repaired and painted and thoroughly cleaned
Location: Attractions,church,restaurants,coffee shops,bars,transportation,bank
The only thing positive I can say about this hotel is the fact that it is close to many things;restaurants,transportation,church,bank,and places of interest. The lobby is presentable in appearance but the floor/carpetting is dirty and smelly.The walls are dirty as well.Its poorly maintained. The room that was given to us has the same problem.The bathroom specially is very disappointing:the bathroom door is chipped,the grout is dirty,the caulking around the tub has black soap scum/dirt which I think can be resolved by simply spraying it with maybe X14.There is a black ring around the drain of the tub most probably from erosion of the porcelain or whatever material the surface of the tub is made of.The closet smells-we have to keep it open to air the somewhat old smell. Overall,if this facility is properly maintained ,maybe it can return to its old glory.

hotel convenient for prudential centre & downtown

Posted 9-Aug-2015
Pros: 24 hour presence at reception ,very friendly and helpful staff, nice public areas
Cons: Breakfast - if you were late down there wasn't much left!
Location: Near copley square and back bay station plus prudential centre. many good eating places wothin easy walking distance and lots of shops nearby
Room 724 - toilet approx 2mm clearance with door. Bath - enamel eroded round plughole leaving black places. Room itself was ok, bed comfortable, aircon worked and cleaners did a good job. Public areas clean. This was once an elegant hotel but that was quite some time ago. The staff were brilliant, very helpful. Use of a computer with internet was free, plus wifi , but wifi only available in reception area. We booked bed and breakfast, when we booked in we saw from the info that a complimentqry continental breakfast was available to all guests!

Good location but not very clean

Posted 9-Aug-2015
The hotel has a good location, only about 5 mins to the subway. However, the room we were in was not clean, with a bathtub which had scratches, so it looked ugly.

駅から歩ける便利なホテル

Posted 7-Aug-2015
Pros: 手頃な値段。
Cons: 看板を大きくしてほしい。ホテルの入り口にも看板を置く等。
Copley駅もしくはBack Bay駅から徒歩圏内で大変便利。 ボストンのホテルはどこも高いですが、Boston Common Hotelは割とリーズナブルです。 ただ、場所を見つけにくかったです。BCHがホテルの看板です。

I found this hotel to be both surprisingly accommodating and well located given the lower rating on this site.
