Fantastic guest house. Comfortable bed and great room amenities including bar fridge. Breakfast was plentiful with variety each day. Walking distance to 2 trolley stops. Plenty of affordable food outlets close by. Stayed 5 nights. Not cheap accommodation but highly recommendable.

Great stay at the lovely Newbury Guest House
We were wary of traveling during covid but the Newberry Guest House was safe, easy and beautiful. We had no person to person interaction with hotel staff, it was all by text. Our room was recently redone, it was pristine and beautiful. We were the first people to stay in it. We declined having the room serviced and we felt very safe. The Newbury Guest House has a prime location in Back Bay, we walked almost everywhere. We went to Boston to visit our son and have stayed in many hotels large and small in Boston, this is one we will definitely come back to.

Great spot!
Great property! Fabulous location and the room was very nice overlooking Newbury Street with a Bay window. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. A full hot breakfast, not the typical grab and go type. Will book here again...if I can get in!

True luxury Boston experience
From check in to checkout our stay here was nothing short of fabulous. I called the morning of our stay to see if we could leave our cars there and stow our bags so we could explore Boston since we would be arriving several hours before check in time. We arrived an hour later, 3 hours before check in and they had our rooms ready along with fresh hot coffee, tea and cookies in the lobby. When we arrived back to our rooms that evening to watch the Celts/Lakers game we had problems with TV reception. Called the front desk and within 8 minutes we were moved to a new room. The rooms are wonderful, beds are comfy, breakfast was awesome with a variety of options and service throughout out stay was fabulous! We will be staying here on our next trip to Boston.

Very good 8.0
Had a lovely stay at the Newbury Guest House. Everything was nice and cozy, breakfast very delicious and THOSE COOKIES! Movie rentals were a big plus too while we were sick. One of our blinds was broken upon arrival but was promptly fixed. Overall very good hotel if you're looking to stay in the cutest neighbourhood and have a lovely staff looking over your stay.
