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, guestrooms 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 booked this hotel through Hotwire. One night at the very beginning of my trip and one night at the end, because the location is amazing and perfect for my rental car pick up and drop off.

I booked this hotel through Hotwire. One night at the very beginning of my trip and one night at the end, because the location is amazing and perfect for my rental car pick up and drop off. First check in the gentleman at the desk told me he was upgrading my room and the room I was being given was three times the size of the room I booked. My son came up to help get me settled and we both started laughing when we stepped into the room. That other room must be pretty small :) Everything was very nice however and there was plenty of room. Only complaint was that there wasn’t a coffee pot in the room. On through a wonderful trip, Boston keeps getting better, great town for walkers. And I go back to Yotel for my last night in town. No upgrade was offered this time and still no coffee pot in the room. This room was just enough space for one, two would be a bit tight. But, again everything was nice, clean, comfy and great views of Seaport. Read less

If you're a person who spends time in their hotel room chilling out. Then this hotel and their cabin rooms are not for you. For me I thought they were great. The cabins are quite small but they are so well designed there is a place for everything. You can pack everything away into spaces and shelving, including your cases which go under the bed.… Read more
If you're a person who spends time in their hotel room chilling out. Then this hotel and their cabin rooms are not for you. For me I thought they were great. The cabins are quite small but they are so well designed there is a place for everything. You can pack everything away into spaces and shelving, including your cases which go under the bed. Unfortunately the bathroom and toilet are only divided from the bedroom by a curtain, which means you and your partner come quite close. If you can live with this you'll be ok. As for the bar and breakfast areas. The staff and food standards are great. Breakfast especially was fantastic. Try the lemon pancakes. Would I stay here again - yes. Would I stay at another Yotel - yes. I enjoyed my first visit. Read less

Ok so before I start let's put this into context. This is a great value hotel designed to provide clean comfortable rooms, it is not a 5 star establishment but it's better for that in my view. It works well, the rooms are small and the bathroom is technically part of the room but its clean and works well. It is also a great location, a short… Read more

It works well, the rooms are small and the bathroom is technically part of the room but its clean and works well. It is also a great location, a short walk into Boston with lots of restaurants and bars around. Great connection to the airport, free silverline bus on way in and station right outside the door. I would definitely stay again. Read less

First of all, I want to say that I booked this trip via Hotwire, so I had NO idea I was signing up to stay at a micro hotel. We paid $300 USD a night for a TINY ROOM. Like... 150 sq feet, couldn't walk around the bed, no place to put our luggage. It was so small and there is NO privacy as the bathroom door is just a curtain. But ok, if you know… Read more

Like... 150 sq feet, couldn't walk around the bed, no place to put our luggage. It was so small and there is NO privacy as the bathroom door is just a curtain. But ok, if you know that's what you're booking, it is what it is. The reason I would NOT recommend this hotel is that most of the staff seemed like they hated their jobs. We rarely got friendly service, which was such a bummer because overall Boston is a very friendly city but here felt like we were inconveniencing them for requiring service. Again - $300 USD a night!! The worst part is that the website is TOTALLY WRONG. We arrived to the rooftop restaurant for brunch at 11:30 (as it states is their opening time on the website), to be told that they don't open until noon, so we waited another half hour then when we were seated we were told they don't have brunch (again, the brunch menu is listed on the website). We were told to go downstairs, as that's where they have brunch - but guess what, no brunch downstairs either (yup, it's listed as brunch on the website). I told the server at the rooftop that she should inform her management team to fix the website and she did not care AT ALL and was quite rude about it. Overall - it's a fine hotel if you like paying an outrageous amount for the world's tiniest hotel rooms and mediocre service, but otherwise, skip it and go elsewhere. Read less
