  • 463 Beacon Street Guest House

    Of all the "Guest House" style hotels I've seen in Boston, this one oozes the most charm. Something about the old-fashioned staircase and the cozy fireplace in the lobby reminds me of colonial Boston and old-world elegance. Even the ceilings in the guest rooms are ornately decorated! The rooms also come with a huge, cherry wood armoire to store your clothes. Don't get me wrong, this hotel isn't for everyone. I think older couples or families looking for a taste of history would enjoy this place the most; however, it's the kind of place where you should probably be quiet after about 9 pm since there are only 20 guest rooms and the walls are fairly thin. There aren't really any amenities, either, except free Wi-Fi. But its location on a beautiful tree-lined street is so quintessential Boston that you forget to care about much else.

    While I liked the idea of the 463 Beacon Street Guesthouse, a series of guest rooms housed in a converted brick Beacon Street Apartment building, the place fell a bit short of the mark for me. The rooms are dark and dingy and the decor is pretty bad (lots of ugly florals and poorly matched colors). The tube TVs are also pretty antique. However, the building is in a prime location with easy access to shopping, restaurants, the esplanade and more, so that's a plus. And the rooms with the lofts are sort of cool. The place just really needs an update.

    463 Beacon St. pushes the boundary between historic and shabby. While the location is excellent and exterior is beautiful, walking into the dimly lit offices on a sunny day on the ground floor was a little unusual. The rooms have a historical apartment style quality to them that is welcoming at first, but an eyesore if you stare at it too long. Complaints aside, 463 Beacon St. is an affordable stay with location right next to Boston’s finest attractions.
