If your hotel room is your castle, this is not the place for you—but if you’re looking for a comfortable, reasonably priced place to sleep and shower, this former YMCA hits the mark—it’s on floors five through eight of a 14-story building a block from Copley Square. In size, the rooms are about what you’d expect, but the unfrilly style—neutrals with pops of pattern and color—helps camouflage how small they are. The Boston Common Hotel, around the corner, is the main competition; it’s more traditional in style and sometimes beats this hotel on price.
