Decent, basic accommodations. Great Chinese restaurant on premises - authentic, not "American" Chinese.
The cleanliness and comfort of rooms werte excellent Room opposite escalator 505 was very noisy due to noisy erscalator
A window I could open, to cool my room down before I went to bed.
I liked the easy check-in and reservation system, and the on-site free parking. I also enjoyed free internet signal and the ease of signing on to it I didn't tlike the fact that I could hear other people's plumbing (toilet flushing especially) that seemed to go on all night long and to come from every direction. It made my rest less restful.
The service was very good. The sound pollution, so many sounds, people singing, talking and walking in the corridor. To many gypsum walls in the hotel structure is not good for sound in bed time. By other hand the bathroom haved a big lick in the roof when the people in upper floor is taking a bath...
Nothing specific but I kindly like the location. Internet service was very bad, Lobby was boring !!
the room was big and full of light, the atmosphere was very nice and the position was quite comfortable!
Although the room was clean, which is excellent, the bath tub was a bit old. After all: a good value for the price. By the way, the chineese restaurant on the first floor was really really good. My laundry bag was not picked up. I got into some troubles because of that.
Friendly staff Quite out of the way for city centre, stayed in south wing which is complicated to reach from lobby, could do with fresh paint
It did not rain on me! More like a transient htl.
Nabil as my driver
proximity to downtown and Harvard; price was good when compared to other locations in the area that were close to the city core (1 mile walk to Harvard Central Subway, 20 minutes after thta to major points in the city. This place was definitely on a budget. There was no Internet available in the lobby; the plumbing in my room needed work; it had a bit of a rundown feel to it. It is a 2-star trying to pass itself on as a 3-star. But for the location how can you complain.
there was no cleaning service
Staff was courteous and helpful. Small fridge, microwave, sink, counter for eating, in room. Shared bathroom, bring your own toiletries.
the staff was helpful the place was an absolute dump, with no screens on the windows, filthy towels and sheets. something was oozing through the ceiling, unquestionably the worst place I've ever spent a night that I actually had to pay for
Good location - whether from South station, or any of the colleges. The entrance was leaking. It was the height of the Boston infamous winter and water was pouring down the entrance. Anyway, I guess this was due to the weather again - the owner may not have planned this level of snow. So in that sense, my review may understate the place.
clean bathroom TV is not working very well
I like here because the owner is really kind people also i could believe him so that's why i recommend the Farrington to you guys.
The hotel was not too far away from Fenway Park. Since that is what I was going to do, it worked out perfect: less than two miles away.
Price and location were good, relatively close to MBTA transportation. The sheets were clean, and there were no visible signs of bedbugs or other pests. The rooms could have been cleaner, the hallways smelled like cigarette smoke, and the shared bathroom had a bit of mold on the ceiling of the shower.
The room was pretty.
WiFi work well :-) Interesting retro design. This is not more than hostel with small rooms. Quite chip, so other guest may make you some troubles. No climate control also is troublesome in the end of June, especially in room under roof.
The price and parking were good. Did not know it would have shared bath; no TP TO the whole time I was there, no towels, freezing cold. The room had a kitchenette but the plug to the fridge didn't reach the wall so it was useless. Also no mirror in the bedroom, so I had to do my makeup in the car. Very very noisy, did not sleep at all second night. Sounded like the entire building was partying.
I think it is cheaper! But it is not the case. The furniture in room is too simple, there are no chairs. There are some strange smell in room, but I can not open the window. There is no air- conditions. It's hot. You can repair the window and install a air- conditions.
