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 stayed three nights. Overall am satisfied. Bed is comfy. Room is small but not too small for one. Toiletries are nice quality in large pump bottles (no individual size options) Having a place to get tasty food and drinks onsite is a big plus.

I stayed three nights. Overall am satisfied. Bed is comfy. Room is small but not too small for one. Toiletries are nice quality in large pump bottles (no individual size options) Having a place to get tasty food and drinks onsite is a big plus. I had several delicious meals with good service and the prices are great for Boston. The location is good for sightseeing and shopping too. The few issues I had were minor like not having shower gel in shower (had lotion instead) and having to get out while wet to get a few pumps from the sink and not getting a door knob card daily to order breakfast in the morning. I will stay here again because the price is so much better than other nearby options. Read less

A very modern design throughout and a bit minimalist but it’s great, comfortable and very practical. Ideal for a short stay. It would have been nice to have coffee making ability in room but not a major problem given the price. Great location and near downtown and some tourist spots if you want them. Service was great all the time You can… Read more

Excellent location just across the river in a newly created township. Staff extremely help when checking in and allocated a room facing the main room - but hardly any noise when in the room. Room is a little futuristic - bed mechanically rolls up for you to watch TV and then mechanically rolls down when you are ready to sleep. Room is very clean… Read more
Excellent location just across the river in a newly created township. Staff extremely help when checking in and allocated a room facing the main room - but hardly any noise when in the room. Room is a little futuristic - bed mechanically rolls up for you to watch TV and then mechanically rolls down when you are ready to sleep. Room is very clean but space is a premium. Knowing the high cost of living and the high cost of hotels in Boston, this is an exceptional compromise. Highly recommended. Read less

This was a new experience and a delightful one. Our granddaughter recommended we stay here because the rates were better then most hotels in Boston. We stayed in one of their "Cabins" (which appealed to us because we are sailors) It was delightful. I give it 3 C's. Cozy, Comfortable, and Charming. We had drinks in the lounge on the top floor… Read more

Just back after a week staying at the yotel. Located in the seaport district. I’d say only 20 minute drive from airport $25 including tip. Small lobby and bar. Check in was quick easy. We were on the 10 floor. Double with a bunk. Only my son and I so perfect. The room is tiny but has everything you will need. No kettle but always take my own.… Read more
Just back after a week staying at the yotel. Located in the seaport district. I’d say only 20 minute drive from airport $25 including tip. Small lobby and bar. Check in was quick easy. We were on the 10 floor. Double with a bunk. Only my son and I so perfect. The room is tiny but has everything you will need. No kettle but always take my own. Great small safe. Bed very comfortable. Pillows were soft with lovely linen. There is a hairdryer and iron if you need one. No issues but housekeeping could have been better. Some lovely bakery’s nearby... flour is round the corner lovely for breakfast. Cinema across the road €15 per ticket. Boston tea party ship, children’s museum federal court a few minute walk away... you can get the trolley tour from across from children’s museum... fabulous sea food restaurants nearby. The barking crab great food but horrific service. No name restaurant is excellent further up towards the conference center. Great food great service. Trader joes has just opened up right around the corner. Great for essentials. Lovely shops in the area. Quincy market would be a good 20minute walk away. We got a few taxis not too expensive. Be prepared to walk. It’s not an easy city to navigate. The T is next door to hotel. $2.90 next stop south central. It’s easy to get around. The kid loved the robot and even brought him a robot toy to our room. Thanks yotel loved our stay... Read less
