YOTEL Boston

Boston, USA

The hotel

Fun and futuristic, Yotel has found its spiritual home in Boston’s Seaport neighbourhood – its tech-driven ‘Innovation District’ is the perfect setting for this tech-savvy hotel, with Boston’s famous sights just moments away thanks to the subway stop in its basement. Inspired by the digital age and styled with a tongue-in-cheek nod to first class travel, guest rooms are called ‘cabins’, you get free superfast WiFi throughout, and you even check in at airport-style self-service desks (although Yotel’s ‘Mission Control crew’ are always ready to help). Even the social spaces are first class themed – from the lobby’s Club Lounge with its casual dining and complimentary tea and coffee, to the rooftop’s Sky Lounge, with its views over Boston’s skyline and harbour, refreshing ‘Cabin Cooler’ cocktails, innovative light bites, and playlists designed by its ‘Sound Architect’.

I was not pleased with my stay and expected much more for the price. It did not have basic amenities such as a fridge and microwave after spending $650 on the room. When I checked in, I was charged twice for everything. I had to wait an hour for my car to be brought to me with valet parking.

Stayed for a few nights for business and personal. Hotel Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Got an early checkin at noon to avoid having to drag luggage around. Overall excellent location and value for the money. Would definitely stay again in the future.

We were in Boston for a wedding and Yotel was walking distance to the event. We found this hotel to be just enough for our one night stay and we were very happy with the cleanliness, the location and the delicious breakfast that we had the next day.

I noticed that they charged my credit card at 3am for $377.00 I asked for a refund since I didn’t stay there and they gave me a hard time. They refuse to give me my money back. I am currently disputing this with my back. Total rip off

This place totally is the pits. Also, do not use the automated check out. You will be changed extra for things you did not use. We were charged extra room charges we paid in advance an 2 days extra parking when we only used night. The rooms are unbelievably small. A fold up bed makes it somewhat tolerable until it is down.

This place totally is the pits. Also, do not use the automated check out. You will be changed extra for things you did not use. We were charged extra room charges we paid in advance an 2 days extra parking when we only used night. The rooms are unbelievably small. A fold up bed makes it somewhat tolerable until it is down. Then the bed is the room and if there is two of you one will have to climb over the other to get out of bed. There is no table, desk, chairs or anywhere to sit down. No coffee maker, no microwave or refrigerator. The sink is so minuscule that just the act of washing your hands or brushing your teeth gets water all over the floor. The towel bar is over the toilet around the corner from the shower so to get a towel you have to get water all over the the floor and toilet. The roof top deck is minuscule as well. It might offer a city view (one of the few places on the property that actually does) yet in the evening the monster TV’s on the walls ( which no one watches) reflect off the glass walls and destroy any view you might have. I got sucked into getting a room here by their cool stylistic Euro promotions. Euro, perhaps, it was more like spending the night in an IKEA showroom display. Surrounding hotels in the same area a block or two away are priced similarly and offer a whole lot more. I would give it a one because of all I listed above yet I gave it a two because it was clean and conveniently located for local transportation. Overall, I rate this as the very last resort when you cannot find anything else. Read less
