Boston Hotels

463 Beacon Street Guest House

Pros

  • Newbury Street is three blocks away
  • The Charles River and Esplanade are one block in the other direction

Cons

  • Some rooms have a two-person occupancy limit, and because of the layout, the house isn't appropriate for children under 7

Fodor's 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.
