This is a great hidden gem in the north end. The suites are spacious and you can't beat the location.  I highly recommend staying here!

This was my first visit to Bricco tonight and we were impressed with every aspect of our dining experience...the ambience and lightening were so impressive, and the hostess, Ally, accommodated us in our request for a table with a view. She was sweet and pleasant and we appreciated this so much. Mina, our server (who was in her final night of training), was extremely professional, energetic and such a positive representative of Bricco. She was an amazing multi-tasker and we took her recommendations for appetizers, cocktails and entree choices. The food was gorgeously presented and so fresh and delicious. We dine out very often, and we were blown away by every aspect of our dining experience. We highly recommend Bricco, Mina, Ally and the delicious food to anyone looking for a fun night out and for great food at a fair price.

My girlfriend and I landed from London last night and since she had an early flight this morning, we were looking to stay in the city. Looked, and everything was book. We had given up hope, and on our empty stomachs, decided to head to the North End to fill up. Thank god we did. Not only did we have a great meal, we also found out about Bricco Suites.

Now, yes, we had just been on a plane for 8 hours, and a trains for 2 hours before that, so a rock with some tissue paper would have been nice, but this place is in a league of its own.

Renovated within the last 5 months, this place has hard wood floors, granite counter tops, a mini fridge, fireplace, steam shower (available in only one room I think), a large and super comfy queen bed.

Ok ok ok, yes, this place must be the same cost as staying at one of those 5 stars out of the way. You can't get all this and be on Hanover St, steps to the Garden, Green , Orange and Blue Lines and not be $800 a night... right? WRONG. This place is super reasonable. $250 for the suites, $200 for a studio.

Let me start by saying this should have been a 5-star rating. The suites are gorgeous and conveniently located in walking distance to anything you need in the North End. The entry to the suites is in what seems like a secret door between two buildings, very cute. My friends had a 2 bedroom suite, and I stayed in a 1 bedroom on a different floor. I can not say enough about how beautiful these rooms really are.

Looks can be deceiving, however... one problem I did notice. I was wearing socks at one point in the apartment and just from walking from the bathroom to the bedroom my socks picked up A LOT of dust! Not only dust but a significant amount of hair. Hair that was definitely not mine. Pretty disgusting! It was obvious they had not cleaned the floors in a while. Ew!

My complaints: When checking in and out you have to enter Bricco Restaurant to locate the host. This was not too much of a hassle because I had others with me, but you have to walk by crowds of people waiting to be seated. If you are carrying a lot of luggage this could get a little uncomfortable. However, the wait wasn't too long before the host checked us in and showed us up to our room.

My main concern with this was that the phone in my 1 bedroom did not work! I noticed this when I wanted to call to ask how to work the sauna in the shower- which did not work and read an error code. This seems petty but in an emergency it would not be acceptable to have a dead phone line. Also, considering the host is located in the restaurant next door, it is not convenient to have to walk down flights of stairs (no elevators) in order to locate someone for help. There were numbers on a desk for room service, front desk, etc. but I am sure they all went to one place- the restaurant next door- which when this closed who are you calling? We would have liked to call room service to let them know the sauna option did not work, at least maybe they could fix it for the next clients.

The host never gave us a wifi password either. I checked with my friends in the other room and they did receive one. Again, it would have been nice to be able to use the phone to call and ask for it.

Also, we noticed there was something leftover in the refrigerator from the customers before us (wrapped in foil). We have no idea how long it had been there, obviously, but it made it awkward to then use the refrigerator with undated/unmarked items inside.

Side note: They provide you with ice buckets, but there is no ice machine in the building. Or at least none that we could find. (Could not make quick call to ask -no phone)

The next morning, check out was 11am. (Disclaimer: I did not put the "Do not disturb" sign on the door the night before.) Room Service knocked on the door at 8:00AM! Barely awake, I yelled "Hello?!" and the next thing you know they unlocked the door and tried to come in. Luckily, I DID put the chain lock on or else they would have been walking in on me laying in bed. Although I did not put the sign on the door, since when does Room Service show up that early?! Especially when normal check out is 11am. Sure enough, at 10:44am they were knocking again. At this point, even though we were almost on our way out, I told them we were not ready and put the "Do Not Disturb" sign out. Very annoying!

The parking situation was not too bad. A little walk down a couple blocks, but close enough if you are not carrying too many things. Be aware that parking is not validated after 3 hours. The host had told us we should park in a certain lot because they would validate-however, I assume he thought we were going to the restaurant? I don't know anyone who checks in and out of a hotel within 3 hours. Parking for the night was only $32 but it would have been nice to know this ahead of time instead of thinking it would be validated!

If a hospital & a hostel had a baby it would be Bricco Suites.
Pros:
-Location
-Smells of baked goods from the the bakery underneath the rooms.

Cons:
-No Lobby- so check in is outside in the rain on a crazy busy street with no valet, no loading zone, and no place to put your bags- even more amazingly bad in the rain- which I hear is rare in Boston.
-No check in desk- when calling to confirm my reservations - I tried on several different calls to get a few questions answer. I was told to call back more than six times only to not every get help and after finally getting a confirmation from a lunch manager at the restaurant ?!? The reservation was still wrong forcing us to move rooms twice!!!
-The lay out of the kitchen was so awkward. Husband is a chef so he prefers a full kitchen- there was a stove but not 1 pot, or pan, or any cooking utensil at all. Maybe so you order room service from their restaurant or deli or bakery but wait...
-No room service.
-No batteries for the tv remotes
-Spotty WI-FI.
-The bedrooms (in both) units where facing the Main Street but coming from a big city we didn't think it would be an issue- well it wasn't from the street but inside the building - every time a door closed it slammed - every time a person walk up and down the stairs it sounded like someone walking into your room-
-No elevator- with a ton of stairs that spiral- try doing that with suit cases (yikes)

If management is reading this:
Put less money into cheesy fiber optic fireplaces that look like Las Vegas and invest into some sound proofing and maybe a pot or pan for the 'kitchen' you claim to be renting-

This place is a scam - go somewhere else

Yes! This is the true Boston experience!! Sure, the lobby is technically the restaurant, and sure, there's some windy stairs. But the hotel itself had great customer service, and amazing rooms.

I went with the one bedroom studio, and was totally blown away when we arrived in our room. It was huge! The bathroom was spacious, we had a nice big flat-panel television, a thermostat to control the very effective heater (it was probably 15 degrees at night), and the nice electric fireplace for looks. It also had a nice sink area, fridge, and sizable desk for me to work at.

Bricco Suites is located in the heart of the old, Italian part of Boston.. Some of the greatest sites and food are there! Definitely returning next year. Oh, and did I mention? Free WiFi.
