Where to stay in Boston: Best areas and hotels

Staying in Boston is not cheap. The capital of Massachusetts is a beautiful city, which you will surely love, but where sleeping cheap is practically impossible.

I have prepared this article to help you choose a hotel that suits your budget. I tell you the best areas and hotels to stay in Boston.


1. North End, one of the best options to stay in Boston

This is one of the nicest areas of Boston. And in fact, it is the oldest neighborhood in the city. It has been inhabited since the 17th century and many of the attractions to see in Boston are located here. In addition, "Little Italy" is located here, an area full of Italian restaurants and a good atmosphere, perfect to end the day with dinner in a very familiar atmosphere.

In the North End the hotel offer is quite limited and therefore it is a very exclusive and expensive area.

2. Financial District, a cheaper and more comfortable alternative to stay in Boston

If what you are looking for is to reduce the cost of accommodation in the financial district, it is the best option. It is located in the Downtown of the city, so you will be right in the center. Apart from having everything nearby, you will be surrounded by all the comforts such as shops, restaurants, places of interest... Here you will find many hotels, generally luxury. However, it is also the area with the largest number of beds, that is, more competition, "better prices" if we compare it with the North End.

We stayed here, at the Hyatt Centric Faneuil Hall Boston 4* hotel, we found a great offer and it's very central, you can walk everywhere.

3. Back Day, the most touristic area of ​​the city

This area is in the center, close to most places of interest. It has all the amenities such as shops, restaurants... and it is also a beautiful area with many 19th century buildings.

There is a lot of hotel offer here, although it is still an expensive area, as you can imagine. But considering that we already know that Boston is an expensive city, we are going to find some good value for money options.

4. South End, the quietest option and good value for money

South End is an upper class residential area. It is a very quiet area and a bit far from the center and the noise of the city. Actually, you will only be about 10 minutes walking from the city center, so if you don't mind walking, this is a very good option. In addition, it is an area with very good prices.
