2nd Visit to No. 284
This is our second trip at No. 284 and it was wonderful! We were worried about covid since we haven't been out of our house since March and they were very accommodating. They gave us a room that no one was in for a few days, windows opened and thoroughly cleaned with gloves, masks & hand sanitizers everywhere. The only disappointment was the lovely breakfast they usually serve which of course could not be done in the library due to Covid...but they did do a contact-less breakfast to our door with a lot of goodies. Hopefully on our next visit we can have the "normal" breakfast! Recommend this place and location !!! :)

Perfect Location for Exploring the Best of Boston
Perfect location for exploring the heart of Boston’s Back Bay neighborhoods. Great access to public transportation, fantastic restaurants and an easy cab/uber or even walk across the Charles to Cambridge. Beautifully kept property that truly gives you the feel of what it is like to live in the heart of the city. We lived a few blocks from this property for almost 30 years and it felt like returning home during our visit.

Boston's best old and new
Tucked away just off the beaten path this place was a wonderful combination of old Boston architecture and modern conveniences. The room was spacious, the bathroom spotless, and everything seemed new. Great location, too.

Very good 8.0
No parking.
Lovely spot if you are without a car. Stressful neighborhood parking for me and I don’t recommend it if you have to contend with that otherwise pleasant and well located. Decent value and amazing location.
