Just stayed at The Bertram Inn for three days and truly enjoyed the antique feel of the place as well as the location. It was in the 90's and even though the AC was not 4 star, it was adequate and we slept well. The bed was comfortable and, due to double glazing on the windows, our room on the first floor was quiet. If you don't mind stairs, the rooms upstairs looked very nice. What sets The Bertram apart is its service. Astrid stands out but there were several others who were enthusiastically friendly and helpful in meeting our needs while we were there. I'd say it was almost like visiting friends if that didn't sound like a cliche. They helped with getting luggage up and down the front stairs, brought ice promptly and gave great instructions for getting around. We also met some other very nice, interesting travelers. It's a short walk to excellent restaurants, Trader Joe's and the T - a zippy old metro that 'could' and does get you around. Since it was so hot, we mostly used Uber - quick and a great way to meet people from all over the world. Boston is nothing if it isn't diverse. Astrid speaks fluent Spanish! The one thing I'd ask for improvement on is breakfast. More emphasis on fruit, healthy breads and eggs with vegetables, less sugar over all. We liked the generosity of carb pastries and snacks (many homemade) but would've appreciated a healthier offering.
