Great location. Located about 150m from Boston Public Garden and about 500m from Arlington Subway Station in a very good & safe neighbourhoid of Back Bay. About 1.5km from a major shopping centre in the Prudential Centre and within a few hundred metres of dining and shopping in the well known Newbury St. very clean property and the live in manager Donald is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are decorated with older antique furniture giving it that old Boston B & B feel. The rok s don’t have TVs however one is available in the dining/lounge room area on the ground floor. The free breakfast is very good and provides a good variety of food. Rooms vary in size with some having shared bathrooms. These bathrooms are very clean and well maintained with great hot water supply. The premises is very quiet and I heard no external noise that disturbed my sleep. Overall this is a very good premises and I would definitely stay there again. The only thing I would say that is negative is the internet quality. In this day and age people rely on it. The reception in my room was poor and kept dropping out which frustrated me as I had to continually walk into the hallway to re-establish connection. Outside of that I’d highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

We keep coming back...

We stay here once or twice a year. Not a full service establishment by any means, the breakfast is definitely limited for example, but very charming, convenient, and good value (for Boston). Definitely consider if the above attributes are at the top of your list.

Loved the room and the location can't be beat.

Beautiful place. Beautiful room. Perfect location. Great Price.

Good value and location

Excellent location and value. Good staff. Be aware: shampoo but no conditioner in some of the bathrooms. Be aware that breakfast is said to begin at 7:45 in the binder in the room, and at 7:30 elsewhere in the club's posted information, but it is often available before that--blessedly, as many of us have to leave by 8 am.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. Amenities, if missing, are always available by contacting the front desk or resident staff. Breakfast information has been updated in all areas to the correct start time of 7:30. With advance notice, a limited number of breakfast items can be made available earlier.

Step back in time to a world of turn of the century elegance, colorful history, and hospitable detail. The rooms are well appointed with names drawn from the Seven Sisters and others. If you are looking for modern, look elsewhere; if you are looking for location and comfort, you have found your spot. Donald was great and very helpful. The dining area is adequate for breakfast. Definitely would stay here again.

Charming hotel.

The College Club of Boston is well-situated near the Public Park. The period rooms are charming and their breakfast is excellent.

The Yearly Get Away

4.6 on October 20, 2017

This was our first time in Boston. I could not think of a better location than the College Club. It allowed us to walk to 95% of the things we wanted to do and see. With the park and river so close it made my daily runs extremely convenient and fun. I read the reviews before we arrived. I knew the history of the building and understood what to expect. The room was huge and very comfortable. The service staff were friendly and helpful. We did not use the breakfast service. We went to different eateries each morning. The offerings were good but we preferred hot entries. I would give the entire experience a 10 and would come back again if we visit Boston again.

Location was great for Family Weekend at Berklee College of Music. It’s was a great change from a chain hotel.

Dream like staying

4.2 on October 10, 2017

I slept at the B&B one night only unfortunately as I was in town only for a very short time. The whole building is wonderful, if you like the ancient style. Location is perfect, just few minutes walk from the Common and my room had a view on the Commonwealth avenue. We had plenty of space and all what it is needed to feel welcome and comfortable. I will definitely love to go back again and I really recommend such a gem!

Perfect stay, close to everything

This was close to everything. A couple minute walk to the commons, the rooms were excellent. We loved our stay!
