The best stay in Boston

4.8 on July 14, 2009

This was my third visit to Boston, and the longest one. In contrast to previous short visits to this charming and expensive city, I had to find an inexpensive solution, and I count myself extremely lucky to find John Jeffries House. In addition to beeing very much affordable, it is located in the center of everything (20 meters to Charles/MGH stations and walking distance to most city attractions), it is beatyful and comfortable (bathromms and kitchens in every studio room are very convenient), it is very clean and the staff is very kind and helpful. My friends who chose to stay in 200-dollars-a-night hotels deeply envied my conditions. I strongly recommend JJH to all Boston visitors.


Great location

November 2008, 2 nights - great stay


I'll be back!

2.6 on September 04, 2008

Pros: Great location-- easy access to the T, to the river, to Beacon Hill (my favorite part of Boston). Friendly enough staff, though an email w/ my credit card info "wasn't received," which was a concern. Very pretty fascade-- cute side garden. Obviously well cared for. Great price for all the above, BUT... Cons: Walls are paper thin-- I woke up a few times during the night to hear other people in their rooms and the hallway. The "Breakfast" part of "Bed and Breakfast" was pretty lame. It was essentially stale, tasteless baked goods, bad coffee and overly rip fruit. Very disappointing. We had to go buy our breakfast elsewhere, which, I think defeats the purpose of a B&B. I was in a room in the basement that had what looked like mold in the corner of the room-- a little disconcerting. And I found several hairs on the extra pillow in the closet. Decided to not use it as a result. Perhaps a more thorough cleaning of the sheets et al would have been appropriate.


Would stay here again

The room we had was clean, well maintained. The lighting is a little dim. The staff was very helpful. Housekeeping went above and beyond as my daughter left something, we called, she checked, called me back and put it at the front desk. Coffee and hot water were always available as well as a fruit bowl which was much appreciated. The common room was spacious and very inviting. It's located right across from the T. We were very pleased with our stay.


Favorite Stay in Boston

4.4 on August 10, 2008

My name is Caitlyn Burns and I have visited Boston 3 times before this last one, but I have to say that this was the best stay so far. The John Jeffries House was amazing in just about every way. The location is great and it is so easy to get to any attraction you want to visit. The staff was so friendly and made sure they did anything they could to ensure the happiness of their guests. The room was also gorgeous itself and accomodated all of our needs. I would definately stay there again and probably will the next time I go up to Boston.

Directions to property:

Follow signs to Sumner Tunnel/Boston. Exiting the tunnel, go up the ramp to 93 North. Exit less than 1/4 mile at Exit #26 B (Storrow Drive/Back Bay). Stay in the right lan and follow through sharp turns. After exiting the short tunnel, you want to take the Government Center/Kendall Square exit on the left. At the bottom of the exit ramp, proceed through the flashing red traffic light. This will put you under a green train bridge, where you'll want to be in the rightmost lane of traffic. The John Jeffries House now comes into view at the 2 o'clock position on the other side of the intersection. It is a four story red brick building with white trim. Pull into the intersection, and take a sharp right turn into the small driveway directly in front of you.(DO NOT GO UNDER THE ELEVATED PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY.)This is David G. Mugar Way, a dead end street. Pull up to the front door marked with a maroon wing. Please do not park in the small attached lot.
