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 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.

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! Two dislikes: 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

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.

The Christopher was nice enough- The bonus is the rooftop deck. The room was clean. The air conditioner was not on we had to call to have it turned on, even though they knew we were coming in. Also the "breakfast" basket left a lot to be desired. 2 8oz bottles of water; one crumpled cereal bar; 2 packets of oatmeal; 2 small juice boxes. Oatmeal in July??? For what we paid they should have fresh muffins in the rooms and larger bottles of water. The area was beautiful, not sure if I'd stay there again.

The Christopher is a great alternative to the blandness of standard hotels. Individual, comfortable, clean and quiet. Pleasant neighbourhood. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I only stayed one night, but if I ever make it back to Boston, that's where I'll stay.
