This red-brick inn looks like a dorm because it used to be one (for nurses working nearby), and its genteel reproduction-Victorian decor fits right in on Beacon Hill. Guest rooms and bathrooms are snug but not cramped; most units have kitchenettes. With cars, trains, and ambulances whizzing past, this isn’t a perfect place if you need dead silence—definitely ask for a room that faces the garden—but it’s quieter than you might expect, and a great deal for the location.
