I only spent one night but I thought for the price it was worth it. I'm not sure what people are expecting but I do think that the description of 40 Berkeley is accurate. The location is EXCELLENT.. Step outside the front door and you are in walking distance to tons of stuff. The train stop is also a short distance away. The room as everyone else said is very basic but when I come to Boston I only use a room to sleep and shower. I was on the 6th floor and both my room and the shared bathroom was clean. I was a female traveling alone but I felt totally safe in the hotel. The biggest issue I had was the fact that there was no AC.. That is a huge deal because it was very very hot in the room. The ceiling fan couldn't operate without the room light being on as well so that wasn't an option. I was able to get fans from the front desk which helped but wasn't really doing the job. I had to keep the windows open which didn't allow me to have a good nights rest at all.. It would've been nice if they had stated there was no AC on when booking the room. I could deal with one night but if I had to stay longer I wouldn't have stayed. All and all if they AC is fixed next summer I would definitely stay here again at this price.. I also have to say everyone I dealt with at the Front Desk was VERY friendly and helpful... Their friendly positive attitude actually made the lack of AC not as much of a negative.
