  • This is a really nice book shop in downtown Boston. I enjoyed my time there looking through their very well organized store. Be sure to check out the 3rd floor for some rare and vintage treasures.  more »
  • Despite seeing all the pictures nothing like it in person! Service is great and definitely could spend hours here easily perusing all the titles outside and inside.  more »
  • Great selection three floors and stock always changes. Any book fanatic you have to stop into the Brattle Book Shop when you are in Boston.  more »

  • One of the best bookshops ever! The place is amazing, the books are even better: all in great condition and they have a bunch of rare books! All with a very good price. You must go even if you don't to buy anything. If you like books, you'll love this place. PS.: They put the $1-5 dollar books out on sunny days! It's awesome!
  • I love browsing at the Brattle. Great cheap books outside, plus plenty more to look at inside. Third floor has some great (if expensive) books to look at.
  • Anything you could want in books, they have it will find. I started my own book collection because of a holiday gift from the rare book section. The section is browsable too, so just head upstairs and see some amazing historical experiences
  • This is a very unique store especially if you're into Brattle Book Shop. I'm assuming who may be the owner was really friendly & knowledgable. We were visiting the area and eating at a restaurant nearby when we saw this store and decided to go in. We bought a few crystals which will be going up in our home.
  • Old fashioned book shop complete with outdoor book sale where you'll find amazing classics at obscenely low prices. It's impossible for any bibliophile to go here and not be blown away by at least a few titles. So much fun.

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
