Great things about this hotel: 1. Right across from the Charles/MGH station. You can get anywhere from here. 2. Brand new bathrooms. 3. Everything was CLEAN. 4. The windows open. 5. Great service, nice people. 6. Considering all of the above, the absolute most reasonably priced hotel in Boston. Not so great things about this hotel: 1. Right across from...

My first stay was in March and looking forward to returning. Great location, Subway right across the street! Charming hotel with old world feel. Very friendly. Would recommend for both business and leisure travel.

Stayed here for about 4 nights during our trip in Oct 2011. We were very pleased with the accommodation. Location was superb - just 5 mins from the subway station and within walking distance to city centre (about 15 mins). We had a studio which came with a kitchenette, and that gave us extra room for our many baggages. Room...

My wife and I stayed here for five nights. Service was excellent. They held packages for me which I picked up on arrival. Breakfast was pastries fruit coffee tea etc. It was sufficient to start the day and there were plenty eating places around the corner in Charles street. The John Jeffries is within walking distance of many tourist attractions...

We live in the Boston suburbs but had to be out of our house for three nights for construction. The JJH seems relatively little known even in Boston and I had read some mixed reviews, but the location and price were right (off-season deal). On the up side: Location (can't beat Charles Street for charm!). It seemed that a lot...

The John Jeffries is located right near the Charles T Stop on Beacon Hill and close to everything. We walked to the Boston Garden/Commons, Newbury Street, North End and Faneuil Hall. The room we stayed in was a Junior Suite, which was clean and included a kitchenette and separate living area. Some of the guests were there for medical procedures,...

After extensive research in hotels in Boston, this place was such a great find at a very good price. Beacon Hill is a notoriously expensive area but this hotel, situated across from the hospital, seems to cater to a different audience, e.g. outpatients, etc. The rooms were a little musty and poorly lit, and the whole place had a slight...

I booked here through email, as I am not from the US. This was an easy process and very quick. I wasn't sure how it would be staying there, as there wasn't a lot of reviews for it when i booked months in advance. I needn't have worried! I had a wonderful time at this place and as i am...

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
