Commonwealth Court Guest House

Guesthouse in Back Bay

These 20 rooms with kitchenettes are not super spiffy, but the price is right for this great location. The Euro-style guesthouse is located in a turn-of-the-20th-century brownstone in the heart of Back Bay. Once a private residence, it retains a homey feel and lots of lavish architectural details.

The service is pleasant, but not overly attentive (maid service occurs only twice a week and the office closes in the evenings).
