This has been our favorite hotel in Boston for several years. It is in a great location just off the Common in a great walking section of Boston. It is small, quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast is delicious, too.

We were having to find accommodations quickly for a stay close to Massachusetts general hospital. The staff was very professional and helpful. A decent rate all things considered. Location is great and convenient. The room was really all we needed. We did have a fridge. Nice linens and towels. If you’re looking in a place beacon hill this is fine. Great staff.

My Husband and I stayed in the suite & could not have been happier w/ the service from every employee we came in contact with. They were extremely accommodating and pleasant and really provided us with an excellent stay. Adorable & cozy option in the heart of beacon hill - highly recommend! Also they have a great breakfast sandwich on their brunch menu!

This hotel is in a perfect location. Staff is friendly and they have a cute little roof deck too when the weather is good. It can be a little loud at times with trucks, but it could be dependent on what room you have. We will be back.

The Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro is in a wonderful location. The staff is very attentive. However, for the price, the rooms are minimal. Nice bed, two nightstands and lamps, but no desk, no chair, no frig/microwave (if that matters to you), no coffee maker (though coffee is available downstairs in the morning), .... oddly, in my room, no washcloths?. But an iron? Who wants an iron when you have no flat surface other than the floor? It was ok for one night, but I probably would not go back again. I did not eat there, so have no review on the Bistro though it looked charming.

Our first time in Boston made better by staying at this little gem. The hotel portrays a fairly inconspicuous presence from the street which is in keeping with the chic, unassuming but genuine ambience once you step inside. Hotel reception staff were very friendly and seemed interested in our travels, making us feel very welcome. The bar is at best bijou, but again, this adds to the more intimate and personal experience of staying at the BHHB that can be lost at a larger venue. Our room was surprisingly and pleasantly larger than we expected with a nice sized en suite bathroom, super comfortable bed and very fast and efficient Wi-Fi. The restaurant serves a small but effective menu in keeping with the hotels presence. Breakfast was a pleasant experience, completely unrushed to set us up for the day. The hotel location in Charles Street was far enough away from the noise of the city but close enough to walk in, on the doorstep of both Boston Common which covers a perimeter of around 1.2km if you fancy putting on your running shoes and a stones through away form the legendary Cheers bar. All in all, a very nice hotel that we will recommend to friends travelling to the city.

Breakfast was so good we decided to have dinner here as well. Fresh fruit bowl was perfect and generous as were the portions of scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes. Potatoes were particularly tasty, crispy and spiced perfectly. Early dinner of Cobb salad and a burger turned out to bed be another good meal. Green goddess dressing was tasty and just the right amount, though there was way too much blue cheese and red onion. Focacio was soft and warm and chewy, perfect to drag through peppery olive oil. Burger was great, though messy, slathered with "secret sauce" and loaded with tomatoes and pickles. Bun could hardly contain it all. Fries were fresh russet potatoes, crispy with good flavor. Service in the morning (Dimas) was perfect. Service this evening was a little distracted and inefficient. Both were very pleasant people. Environment was bright with good lighting from large Windows reflected in the wall of mirrors opposite. Many thanks for a nice experience. Prices were reasonable, too.

Great location.......Charles St. Boutique hotel and reasonably priced compared to the big name hotels. Our room was small but very functional. Queen mattress comfortable. Bathroom big...for the size of room with tub/shower. It was a corner room with nice window views. No elevator to 3rd or 4th floor so plan your bags accordingly. I brought ear plugs because of Charles st...but didn't need.

Usually with day time shopping, eating and perhaps a glass of wine, Back Bay is the neighborhood of choice, however, this sunny Saturday we decided to stay in Beacon Hill and walk over to Beacon Hill Bistro. With no reservations, the host greeted us with a broad smile and escorted us to a table. BHB, as the restaurant is affectionately known is classic Boston Bistro design with dark wood, gilded mirrors, black and white tiled floors and the crispest white tablecloth covered tables. I was facing the large windows onto Charles Street where the sun has the pleasure of shining in on BHB’s patrons. The brunch menu offers you the classics of omelets, eggs benedict and burgers and some not so Boston classic choices such as Shakshuka, Quinoa Breakfast Bowls and (Apepas con Camerones) Huevos Avocado. Always the creature of habit with choosing eggs benedict, I moved away from my brunch repeat behavior and ordered the Smoked Salmon Toast, which is a plate stacked high of beautifully pink smoked salmon over rye with creamy avocado and salty capers. One of my friends thoroughly enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, a brunch dish of uncompromising juicy Maine lobster and perfectly poached eggs. The other opted and devoured the Shakshuka while commenting throughout of its wonderful spiciness. I didn’t even get a look in to have a quick taste! A bowl of fruit for the table was ordered merely to make us feel righteous, however proved to be delicious in its simplicity of a fresh fruit accompaniment. Back on my radar for restaurant options in the city, I will surely be heading back to BHB very soon.

The hotel itself is lovely and the staff were very kind and helpful. Just a couple of downsides the shower gel was low throughout our stay and you could get hardly any out i was a bit surprised this wasn't checked during housekeeping. The shower itself also wasn't very powerful. We had a clock in the room but it wasn't showing the right time and appeared to be out of battery? didnt think this looled very good. The air conditioning was quite noisy but you could get a good temperature. We enjoyed our stay though as i said just a few minor things.
