Thank you for your glowing review of Newbury Guest House.

Nice place to stay especially if you’re looking for something close to Fenway and in a shopping district. Loved breakfast everyday and the water and coffee available at all times. Rooms were nice; bathrooms were small with little counter space (stayed in a one queen bedroom). Overall good stay!

Nice hotel overall, but the bathrooms need help

Pros: The staff was very helpful and kind. The man who was sweeping the parking lot even helped us back up and was very kind to my boyfriend and I.
Cons: The bathrooms, and general cleanliness of the hotel itself. There need to be some pretty severe improvements to the bathrooms.
Location: The location was fabulous for the price, it was right on Newbury and a five minute walk to all the best stores in Boston!
Keeping in mind the hotel was under renovation during out stay, there was still an excess of dust in the hallways, elevator and on the walls. The staff was very nice and helpful though, and they were quite good about moving cars in order to get in and out of the crowded parking area in the back. The bathrooms were clean but terrible. The shower head was weak, and the tub would fill with water while showering because the drains were not working properly. We had to flush the toilet several times whenever we used it because there was not enough water pressure to get the job done. The location was impeccable though, and we would stay there again without hesitation, as it is probably the best price in the area for the quality of hotel that it is. It was very quiet and there was a lot of privacy in our room which was the standard queen.

The character of this Boston hotel is excellent!

Pros: The location and the idea that we stayed in a Boston brownstone in a historic city!
Cons: A real refrigerator instead of a beverage cooler in the room.
Location: Located within walking distance to "T" stations. The shops and the outdoor restaurants were plentiful and within walking distance.
The location is excellent in a historic part of Boston. The accommodations were excellent and it is within walking distance to the "T" which gets you anywhere in Boston. The room was comfortable, clean and cool. We were hoping for a front view but the back of the hotel was just fine. The breakfast was a good start to the day. The staff was extremely accommodating during our visit and made us feel welcomed. On the days we rented a car we had a nice space in the alley behind the hotel and was able to enter a back door. This hotel is great! We enjoyed our visit and may just have to return soon!
