This is an old hotel. It gives you an nostalgic feeling. Overall, the room is comfortable. It is clean for an old hotel. The location is perfect. I would recommend this hotel for a business trip. For leisure travel, the room is a little bit too small.

A day in Boston

I wanted a place close to shopping and that's what I got. The hotel is large and grand, but needs a makeover. The paint is chipping, there was mold and noisy vents. The bed was quite uncomfortable, but it was only for a night. For an overnight, I might try again due to the more reasonable price than the other Boston hotels in that area.

Good location. Very old overall. Run down rooms... Feel like you need to wear your shoes around the room/shower. Bed was clean.

A pleasant hotel in a good location.

Attended a trade show here and found location, staff, facilities and food all a very good value for the money. The staff was quite friendly and helpful.

Clean, Quiet, Basic

Boston Common Hotel was everything I wanted from a hotel for my trip, but I didn't want much. Mainly it had to be inexpensive, in a location close to the train, and reasonably clean and quiet. The staff are very nice, and the price was right; I really liked the location, not directly ON Copley Square but only a block away. There is NO in-room internet, but my room was close enough to the "common areas" (where there is wifi) that I could pick up internet from the room. The room was small, but clean and suited my needs. Very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, decent desk and television. The breakfast in the mornings was basic but edible, bakery goods, cereal, and fruit.

small room but wonderful location

Our room was very small, but perfectly clean. The front desk is not always covered (on two occasions I had to call a second time to get a human being to answer the phone), but when we were there the staff was very friendly. Breakfast is what you'd expect for free. The location is terrific: the hotel is next to Boston's Back Bay train station (Amtrak, commuter rail, subway, as well as Avis and Zip rental cars) and 3-minute walk from Copley Square and and the center of the Back Bay area.

Unclean in Boston!

The site needs to white glove some of these places before including them in recommendations. Great location and friendly people, just don't touch anything!

Great location, suits needs

The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was warm and cozy. Overall my floor was quiet and helped me prepare for my interviews. The continental breakfast was also very nice. It doesn't have many amenities, but it was an excellent price especially given its perfect location!

Good location, warm room!

We are a young couple who stayed here during winter. The room was really warm and cosy with lots if channels to choose from on the tv. The location was great- walking distance from beautiful Boston Common and close to the start of the freedom trail. Lots of good restaurants bad bars nearby as well as friendly staff (especially the cleaning staff who made our room really comfy and clean when my boyfriend was sick) who will help you out with directions, sightseeing,etc. complimentary breakfast was good but there were limited places you could get wifi ie not in your room. Overall a great place- we would definitely come back!

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

When doing the Freedom Trail, definitely start early in the day and allow yourself the whole day to go it. The walk itself should only take an hour and a half each way but it us nice to be able to stop and enjoy done if the sights, pubs and restaurants in the town. Definitely worth stopping at the markets too!
