Why We Love This Hotel

  • Eater Boston calls on-site Casa Caña restaurant "a rum-filled taste of Havana"
  • Located in the trendy Allston neighborhood -- walkable to the Harvard campus, 10 minutes driving to Fenway Park and 15 minutes to downtown

Overview

You'd be hard pressed to find a hotel that's more exuberantly artsy than Studio Allston: 22 artists from around the country collaborated to produce the funky sculptures and vibrant paintings that adorn just about every vertical surface, including a wall-consuming "technicolor pop-art mural" (The Telegraph) in the lobby. 

Then there are the guest rooms. Decorated in a monochromatic gray palette offset by deep-purple suede chairs and -- you guessed it -- more art, rooms come with modern necessities like flat-screen TVs and overlook the neighborhood or the nearby Charles River. We suggest upgrading to a Studio Suite for an extra 190 square feet of space as well as a separate living and bedroom area.

The on-site Casa Caña restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and has already received praise from Eater and the Boston Globe. There's also a late-night bar menu available daily until 2 a.m. -- we're particularly fond of the Paté de Jamón with a side of plantain chips. Guests staying over the weekend can sample the brunch menu, which includes Latin-inspired cocktails and twists on hardy breakfast classics -- both of which come in handy after a night out in Allston.

Attractive rooms decorated by different artists, with iron and board, refrigerator, comfortable bed, T.V. A fitness room. Access to hot water, assorted tea bags and coffee behind the checkin counter. Pedestrian bridge across to park and walking paths along the water. Free parking. Own restaurant but we did not use it. Close to large supermarket with Starbucks, Macdonalds and one other restaurant

The hotel is just a basic hotel with a pretentious artsy veneer on top. However, it is the resort fee (or facility fee) that makes this a bad deal. The hotel is no resort and has few facilities. How many guests take advantage of the free "tango" lessons? There is no in-room coffee maker, how about that for my extra $20?

Funky hotel with rooms decorated by different artists. The room was comfortable with good beds. We appreciated the follow-up by the hotel staff after checking in. The Cuban restaurant in the hotel was not to our taste. But with Harvard only a 30 minute walk away, there were plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. And a Trader Joe's only an 8 minute walk for DIY lunches and dinners!

Our room faced the river and it was a pleasure to get up in the morning and watch the rowers training in their sculls.

Cool hotel with funky, artsy vibe near Harvard. It was a 10 minute Uber to/from Fenway Park for the Sox game. Great staff and easy check-in. AWESOME, Comfortable beds !! Good shower, with high enough showerhead and plenty of pressure. The only downside for me …. The walls were a bit thin, both interior and exterior. I I did hear noise on and off through the night. Still not enough of an annoyance to make me not visit here again.

I wish I had time to eat or have a cocktail at the Rum Bar at this hotel. It looked very inviting, and the menu looked delicious !
