463 Beacon Street Guest House Review

Though there's no sign on the door of this handsome brownstone, international visitors and college students have discovered the rooming house—and quickly warmed to its slightly quirky, old-auntie charm. Check out the old black-and-white photos of Boston in the hallways as you head to your room (each is slightly different, as befits a historic house). The antiques-filled common area functions as a guest room in summertime, and it's the best one in the house. All other digs are tidy but basic, with hardwood floors; those on the fifth floor are loft style. This is not the place for anyone looking for an all-inclusive, private getaway: there's no restaurant at 463 Beacon, and a few rooms share a bath.

    Boston on a Budget

    What a wonderful find! Well located -- walking distance from the T, from Fenway, and BU -- and so reasonably priced. After booking a room at these prices I expected, frankly, a dump. Far from it. The room was large (the bathrooms are small) and had a kitchenette -- so we saved even more money by eating meal or two in the room. All the rooms are different; check out their web site. I will stay there again, and again, and again. My only criticism -- no coffee maker in the room and the lobby coffee service did not start until 8:30 -- BUT -- there was a great coffee/pastry shop a block away. Oh, no hair dryer -- take your own -- this place is worth it.
