My boyfriend and I stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and it was the perfect spot for a short getaway trip. Our room was on the top floor which was just a staircase away from the building's rooftop, a beautiful view that overlooked the city. We sat up there every morning for breakfast and every night before bed. The view was absolutely spectacular!
The room itself was great; very clean and in the perfect location. Although the hosts were not onsite, we had no issues checking into our rooms. When we come back to Boston, we will definitely come back here!
Great place in a beautiful neighbourhood

The staff, even though they were offsite were prompt and professional. Their communication prior to our arrival was right in time and throughout our stay were available easily.
Boston Studio Apartment
su ottobre 15, 2014
This Boston Studio Apartment was as described. It's in the Southside, which is a nice location and has some good places for eating and is only a 20 minute walk to the centre of town. If you want to walk to the Back Bay area or North End it's about a 45 minute walk. Of course, you can use the buses or T-line if you prefer.
On the downside, it was up 3 flights of stairs (no lift) and we had to repair the cistern the first time we flushed the loo (quicker than calling the agents), the curtain rail was broken and there was no plug in the sink or a washing bowl for washing pots. However, there was a good selection of kitchen equipment if you are going to self-cater but the fridge was REALLY noisy and as it's a studio flat it was only a couple of feet from the bed. The worst thing about the apartment was the rubber sheet on the bed - yuk.
On the plus side, the communication and instructions were simple and easy to understand (top tip: put the security codes for the doors in your phone so you don't lose them!) and on our final day we were able to leave our luggage in the main office (a short walk away) until our flight. The staff there were very friendly and helpful.
If you do go to Boston I would recommend going on one of the Trolley Bus tours - approx. $40 p/p. The tickets are good for 2 days and you can get off/on as you please. The guides are really friendly and the narration is entertaining and interesting. It also includes a free boat trip around the bay. If you want Pizza try Pizza Regina in North End (Little Italy) - it's really busy but good fun. For lunch, go to Quincy Market for some great take-out.
Wonderful, with a caveat.

The location and room was wonderful. Service was very minimal as there is a code to get into the front door and another one for your room, which they send via email, so no personal contact. As we had read on previous reviews, the "breakfast" part of the B&B consisted of some breakfast bars and instant oatmeal cups. There was no common area to sit and enjoy the company of the other guests at breakfast or in the early evening, which is another thing lacking from other B&Bs we've stayed in. There was no afternoon tea or wine, cheese and crackers sort of thing, again because there is no common room. Simply put, if you think of The Christopher as a B&B, you are going to be disappointed. If you think of it as a boutique hotel, you will have a great time.

Excellent location, great rooms, beyond our expectations. Would recommend this to anyone.
Great accommodation for couples
su agosto 26, 2013
Excellent accommodation for a couple. Has everything you need to cook your own meals and is close to supermarket and the centre of town, train station etc. Would definitely recommend it. Great city.
Good room for the value
su luglio 10, 2013
Easy and quick access to all of Boston's attractions.
Was able to check-in early, which was a plus.
Great View from Rooftop with a Grill to use, which was great!
1. Not able to control AC from room...relatively cool enough but definitely some times it would have been nicer to make it cooler considering we visited in July during 90 degree weather!
2. Bed was fairly hard/flat and so I did not find it comfortable.

From when we walked upstairs to when we left thr whole experience was great. Spacious bedroom with great decor and livingroom and kitchenette were better than expected. Customer service was top notch and they are only 100 yards up the road if anything needs doing. View was great from roofdeck and bbq is supplied for residents. On leaving the excellant manager of The Inn on botolph street took in our bags on our checkout morning and offered us use of there facilities while we waited to depart boston later than afternoon. I would recommend this to anyone bringing kids as there is a great playpark and amenities within 5 minutes walk. I will be rebooking for the new year
Private Apartment close to Hynes Convention Center
su marzo 15, 2013
I stayed at The Christopher during a conference at the Hynes Convention Center. Note that this is not a typical B&B. It's more like renting a furnished apartment. The entrance is hard to find (which I think is good-- safer). You must walk up 1, 2, or 3 flights of stairs to reach your room-- no elevators-- so pack light. There's not really "breakfast"-- just a box of dried goods-- but there's a nice little convenience store across the street and a wine store right down stairs. The rooms are great-- spacious, light, and with fireplaces! I wanted to stay in my room the whole time I was in Boston, but I had to go to the convention. It is only 3 short blocks from the Prudential Center, which you can walk through to get to Hynes-- about a 10 minute walk. For a huge private apartment it was a much better deal than staying at the conference hotel. I would stay there again and recommend it to others.

Stayed for two nights. A great location in the Back Bay area. Walking distance to to some restaurants, the T, and the Boston Commons where we caught the City Trolley tourist trolley to jump on and off throughout the area. The trip up to the rooftop on the fire escape was a bit scary, but worth it to see the view. Lovely little rooftop dinning area. We didn't use the cooking facilities in our room, but could have. We saw another couple dining on spaghetti and wine that they had made in their room. Room was very clean and pleasant.
