AVOID. Incredibly RUDE staff that lost my paid reservation! I can't even tell you whether the apartment quality is good because I never got to stay there. I booked four nights in January 2013 at the Christopher in October 2012 through hotels.com and paid for my entire stay at that time. A couple of days before my travel I called...

I enjoy this type of accomodation. You have all the advantages and none of the hassles of living in a hotel room. It's also very reasonably priced. It's like having a pied-à-terre in Boston's South End. Its location is perfect. The bed and the bedding are comfortable and the room we rented had all the conveniences we needed to have...

We just spent a lovely week-end in Boston, thanks to the beautiful weather. Our accommodations at the Boston Christopher were unfortunately not up to expectations. The Christopher is a lovely B&B individual unit located perfectly in the heart of the South End. The room, unit #3, was fine for 2 people. The problem came with the air conditioning. We did...

Good: Boston is extremely expensive, and the place is comfortable for it's price. Love the luxury of having a kitchen - and what they have is more than sufficient. Furniture well chosen for room, though slightly cramped, still enough space for luggage. The public balcony and roof are lovely additions, but unfortunately the weather was too cold and rainy when...

We spent a while looking at various types of accommodation in Boston, and we went for the Grand Studio (number 8) at the Boston Christopher based on the location and that the hotels were mostly out of our price range. The location is great, lovely part of Boston with picturesque brick town housed streets and some nice cafe's and restaurants...

No sound insulation between units - you can hear every sound, every word. Never saw / hear anything like this. There was also a fridge which had to be plugged put at nite due to the amount of noise. Severely rationed tolietries.

Our friend booked this as a B&B, however, there was no breakfast at all! The room was small...neighbors heard easily through the wall. The shower barely released enough water to get you wet! The refrigerator made lots of noise, and the bed was so uncomfortable that it gave me a backache!

Given the high cost of this place, I would say it's not worth it. When I arrived (on a hot, humid august evening), I entered my studio to find it too hot to sleep in, and I also discovered that I couldn't control the AC from my own apartment (one of the other apartments controlled it!!) The apartment was clean,...

I stayed in two different units of the Boston Christopher during a recent conference. First a studio unit and then a one bedroom unit when my room-mate arrived. They sent the door codes in advance, which worked well. The walk to and from the convention center wasn't a problem-in fact it was quite delightful walking past a park and some...

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
