Un magnifique endroit chaleureux!

3.8 on July 29, 2014

À seulement 5 minutes du métro! Déjeuner généreux! Un peu dispendieux mais sans regret!

Wonderful experience!!!

4.0 on July 22, 2014

It is a comfortable spot with quiet surroundings. Public transportation is close by and various restaurants are right around the corner. The quality of the room and cleanliness is superb, although the AC was a bit too much. I very much recommend this place if you want a homey feel when on vacation!

Awesome location!

3.6 on July 19, 2014

The location of the Guest House couldn't be better. It is on a quiet street close to Coolidge Corner and not far from Northeastern University where our daughter is a student. We will definitely stay here again but with a couple of caveats. Rooms with a private bath were not an option this time. Next time we will be sure to reserve enough in advance to stay in a room with its own bath. We will also be sure to ask for a room with a newer mattress. Ours was had seen better days but I asked to see rooms upstairs prior to our departure and they had beds in better condition. Breakfast was good and the weather was perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the lovely back garden space. For the money, this was a great find.

Great place at a reasonable price

4.4 on July 08, 2014

The "bed and bagel" is known as a great place that is known for accommodating religiously observant guests. The staff there was very helpful and kind when we stayed over shabbat. This is one of the few bargains left in Boston.

Pleasant convenient B & B

3.6 on July 04, 2014

Half an hour from Harvard Square on the 66, steps from the Green Line to downtown Boston, in a nice neighbourhood (Brookline). We were very pleased with this B & B.

Convenient, clean, helpful staff

4.8 on July 02, 2014

Lovely room and super helpful staff! I will happily stay here again.

Nice place and great breakfast!

4.6 on July 01, 2014

The place was very nice and clean. They offered cake, cookies, fruits, variety of teas upon arrival. Great location, close to the train station and safe neighborhood. They also provided a variety of breakfast.

A welcome retreat

5 on June 24, 2014

We have stayed at the Coolidge Corner several times now, our most recent visit being a weekend in early June. This was the first time we were able to take advantage of the warm weather to have breakfast out on the deck in the lovely backyard, a wonderful bonus to our usual delightful stay here.

A delightful little place

5 on June 09, 2014

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Coolidge Corner Guest House Bed and Bagel! The room was spacious, the breakfasts a delight, the location perfect! I stayed there while attending a professional meeting held at a wildly more expensive hotel in downtown Boston; smart move on my part even if I do say so myself! It was an easy walk to the T. The meeting hotel was a few T-stops in to town at Copley square. My son and his wife live in Brookline only a few T-stops in the opposite direction. I got a week pass for the T and made ample use of it going in both directions. There are very few negatives to mention, and none severe. The parking situation is tight. There is just a long driveway up a steep incline and all but the last car in the line is blocked. However, the owners take responsibility for swapping out the cars if you need yours and it is blocked in, and as I mentioned, public transport is nearby and very convenient. The staircase up to the second floor where my room was was indeed steep. Though I am getting older it was not a problem for me, but in a few decades it might be; mitigating this there is help available for your bags. The other guests I met at breakfast were all delightful. I wish I could have lingered more over breakfast, but after all I was supposed to be attending my meeting. I would certainly recommend the Coolidge Corner Guest House Bed and Bagel to anyone staying in the area, and I hope to stay there again myself. And yes, the bed was comfy and the bagels yummy.

Convenient for Orthodox Jews staying for Sabbath

4.6 on April 08, 2014

As an Orthodox Jewish traveler who wanted to stay on Friday-Saturday because it was near a synagogue, the Coolidge was a good choice. It was within walking distance to two local synagogues, allowed entrance to a room with a key rather than electronic card, and offered coffee & juice on the Sabbath morning. Accommodations were pleasant and decor was quaint. Parking was a small challenge, but do-able.

This exit will take you to an underpass that puts you on Storrow Drive. While on Storrow Drive please stay in the middle lane all the way (except when the road narrows to two lanes). As you exit the tunnel you will be on Storrow Drive. Go about 1.7 miles. You will see the sign for Kenmore Sq./Fenway. Again, even though the exit is on the left, stay in the middle lane to exit. As soon as you exit there is a fork, stay to the right. At the first set of lights you will take a right onto Beacon St. Travel on Beacon for 1.3 miles (note as you go through Kenmore Sq., Beacon street is the middle street exiting the square) to Saint Paul St. Turn left on Saint Paul.
