I loved the neighborhood where The Union Park Guest House is located. The converted brownstone is lovely and quiet. Our room on the uppermost level was beautiful. We had a very comfortable bed made up with beautiful linens. The bathroom was also beautiful but I did not like the skylight in the center of the bathroom. It left me feeling very exposed and vulnerable as there was no window treatment or blind but there was a balcony from an ajoining building that looked right down into our bathroom. I also thought that since we reserved our room for two people there should have been two robes supplied instead of just one. Our room was cleaned and the bed made everyday but there is no one there if you have questions. There is a phone number to contact someone if there are issues. We did not see a single person the entire time we were there. There was no breakfast, just kashi bars and a keurig coffee maker on the first level. A Keurig in each room or at least a 2nd one on the upper level would be a nice improvement. Guests should be prepared to carry all of their own luggage up and down the steps. There are 60 steps from the sidewalk to rooms 4 & 5 on the upper level. As for value, I think $200.00 for weekend nights in a nice Boston neighborhood is about what I expected to pay. The guest house was spotless. There is no dining at the guest house but we had a folder in our room with recommendations for area restaurants. I think they could improve their breakfast with some muffins and pastery from one the local coffee shops. In summary, Lovely converted brownstone with beautiful rooms in a great neighborhood. Not sure I would go with the "unhosted" concept again. I would have appreciated help with our bags as well as some tips to navigating Boston like finding the nearest T station.

The room was quiet, very nice and a good size. The bathroom had a bath and a shower. Everything was furnished to a very high standard. A kitchenette is available with a microwave and utensils. I would only wish for a wardrobe or rail to hang some clothes. Tea and coffee is available as well as granola bars. The hot water didn't work one morning but was fixed the same day after I emailed the manager. The guest house is within walking distance to many bakeries, eateries and restaurants in the South End and Tremont St. is just one block away. A supermarket and 7Eleven are two blocks away. The Silver Line to South Station and Downtown is two blocks away. You can walk to the Prudential Center mall for shopping too (about 15 min walk). The guest house was convenient, immaculate, well serviced and I cannot recommend it enough!

Our room was very spacious and funrished to a very high standard. The bed and breakfast is located on the southside on a quiet street about 10 minutes walk to copley square. Very nice and quiet area. The manager was very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast buffet offered a variety of different foods varying from muffins, yoghurts, cereals, juice teas and coffee. There was also a fridge on the top floor where you could store your own items very helpful! Would definetly go back.
