            Nothing.

            Everything.... The rats under the floor were the icing on the cake. Very dirty, careless staff, no blankets and radiators switched off; Boston is not warm. It was only booked as there were no other rooms available and at £108 per night this was the worst rip off I encountered in the us.

            Good price for the location: easy to get downtown and visit Boston.

            They don't provide shampoo and soap.

            Very old and dirty.. Didn't like!! Too expensive for those motel type of rooms!!! Never again!!!

            I really appreciate them. They give me great help because my wollet was lost in the bus, and they tried their best to help my to find it. At last, my wollet was returned. They are nice guy.

            Clean room, good price, good staff, decent location

            Wifi worked 3 times for about 10 minutes each; despite trying many times. I don't care how cheap the price is - you have to have workable wifi for me to stay there. The tv is not such a big deal - but I can't remember when I've seen worse reception....I Assume it was connected to an intenna on the roof

            If you have any business at BU, the location is good.Got upgraded to a room with bathroom and kitchen.

            This isn't a great place to stay. It has two buildings, one in Farrington st and one in Linden st. around the corner, we stayed in the last one. There's only wifi in the lobby, but it's too slow to be of any use. The hotel is quite shabby and overpriced, but Boston is an expensive city and sometimes (for example during graduations) it may the only thing left that you can actually afford. For us it was a last resort. If you find anything in your price range in a better location I'd go with that.

            The mouse/rat that appeared at night woke me up allot

            I stayed in the Private Queen Bed - Shared Bath room. The room was roomy with a living room, microwave and utensils.

            The room was so cold! There was not enough heating at night and we had to ask for two extra blankets. I'm from Philly and it was a lot warmer

          • Couple

            The hotel was very close to local shops, bars and restaurants. There were good transport links to central Boston and the surrounding areas. The rooms came with an optional extra (chargable) for a kitchenette, which we had. Our room had its own bathroom and a walk-in closet. The hotel staff were polite and friendly, and helped us if we had any concerns - including supplying us with towels and a hairdryer.

            In spite of the fact that we had a room with a kitchenette, the hot plate was rusty and dirty and there was no kettle. We weren't offered any clean towels or sheets until our last day. The free wi-fi only worked intermittently and could only be used in the main building, whereas our room was in another property down the street. The decor in some areas was tired and dated.

            The staff was great. Even though we booked a smaller room, they upgraded us to a room with a private bath and small kitchenette for free. When we had problems with the heat, the man who checked us in came over within 10 minutes and fixed the heater for us. It was a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

          • Group of friends
            4.6

            Within short walk of restaurants.

            Had to share a bathroom. Room overpriced for what was on offer but probably due to it being the marathon weekend. No breakfast served.

          • Family with children
            3.2

            the staff was helpful

            the place was an absolute dump, with no screens on the windows, filthy towels and sheets. something was oozing through the ceiling, unquestionably the worst place I've ever spent a night that I actually had to pay for

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            The hotel was not too far away from Fenway Park. Since that is what I was going to do, it worked out perfect: less than two miles away.

          • Group of friends
            5.0

            WiFi work well :-) Interesting retro design.

            This is not more than hostel with small rooms. Quite chip, so other guest may make you some troubles. No climate control also is troublesome in the end of June, especially in room under roof.

          • Family with children
            4.2

            It was close to Boston University.

            I did not like the musty/moldy smell. I did not like the fact that the bathroom had no shampoo & no hand towels. The price was outrageous for the accomodations.
