My son and I enjoyed our stay very much on a trip to visit BU. A nice oasis in Boston, charming bed and breakfast, responsive and friendly staff to our inquiries and made arrangements for a very late arrival. A place that feels of history in charming area of Boston, easy trip downtown on the subway. Will plan to stay there again. No.
Well located from a short walking distance from train . This is not a hotel.It should not be in your list of 100 hotels of Boston. It´s a B&B with a poor service( they live at 8pm and return next day at 8am ) and have no tables neither chairs for a poor breakfast. I had a room in the 3rd level and to climb cracking narrow stairs.
The staff was very friendly and accommodated my needs in any way they could. The location is excellent, with great pubs and restaurants within a short walk. The green line stop is across the street. It takes just 20-30 mins to reach downtown boston It's an older building without much charm or common facilities (breakfast must be taken standing up)
Location, convenience, old building, easy and clear check in and out, cleanliness Beds were bit soft for us.
Quiet neighborhood, close to the train. The first room was an emergency exit room with big metal exit latches on the door and windows. The exit sign glowed red all night. I moved to a second room. The bed was comfortable, but the shower was very very tiny. There was only enough room to turn around, I couldn't bend down.
Location was good - steps from public transportation; good value. Room was clean at check-in, but was never cleaned again after that (only the beds were made and the towels replaced sometimes).
Location near the t is marvelous. All the neighbourhood is also vey nice a very good free internet access either via wifi or via a computer located on 2nd floor The rooms are quite big and bathroom is very convenient Impossible to park overnight without getting a file of 30 us$. It is compulsury to use parking facility of hotel which is very crowded and is an overcost of 20$ per night. You should mention that
It is conveniently located on the green line. The atmosphere of the rooms are also nice. The staff was very helpful too. the poor breakfast ( i usually drank some tea but skipped the rest)
The location was awesome - right by the train and just 15 mins from downtown boston. Close to the beautiful reservoir which is a great place togo for a run/walk. The lock on our door was broken and since we were leaving our computer during the day and since the front door was unlocked from 8am to 8pm we were pretty concerned. We expressed this concern and were told that there was nothing that could be done (no refunds, no room switching, no way to fix the lock). The "solution" we were given was to "hide our computer in a drawer..." I think there was blood on our shower curtain (it looked like a stain and not the fault of the people who clean the rooms). The shower leaked onto the floor. The wallpaper was peeling off all over. Our shower mat had holes in it and was clearly very very old. Breakfast wasn't good - worse than costco pastries.
The Bed No coffee in the early morning
Location. Very easy to get in and out of Boston. Value. The price seemed a bit high for what we actually received.
the rooms were huge! i would rather there be service at night
It had a real "homey" feeling. It smelled like my old aunts house in NY. You would think that's a bad thing, but it wasn't. That smell brought back memories. I can't describe it. I didn't like having to get dressed to go to the bathroom across the hall from my room. It wasn't a shared bathroom like in a hostel, but still. Also, they should put a little card with a list of all the viewable cable channels. It was really anoying finding something good on TV and then realizing you dont have the channel.
The Inn was just what we were looking for. The room was big and had just about everything we could need (except an iron).
The staff was very friendly and the room was huge. The room could be a bit warmer and the people weren't at the reception sometimes.
nice place very safe the room the bed the bathroom
the desk clircks were very polite, indulgent and helpful the lights did not all work, the TV only two channels did show, during the night no heat, no room for breakfast, reading or lobby, unforgivable : the shower was cold, no hot water ! This is unforgivable in February.
Size of room, location, helpfulness of staff Walking up all those stairs!!
Convenience Locked front door of hotel was joke. Needs complete replacement
There was plenty of room in the bedroom. There were 3 beds which were more than the two of us needed, but pretty impressive that all of them were in there and there was plenty of space to move around. The ceiling and stairwell produce a lot of noise due to footsteps. I realize that this often cannot be helped, but it contributed to a harder time getting to sleep.
The location with the commuter rail right outside was fantastic. It was like being able to drop in on a friend's to crash. The room we had (bathroom off the room) was fine. A little unconventional going thru the bathroom to get to the main room. But room was large and nice. The shower experience was terrible. The water temp fluctuated between scalding to cold.
Freindly staff, good location.
Quaintness and ease to get to Fenway and the Museums It is charming but does need some updates and fix things that need to be fixed.
I was in Boston for a downtown conference and conference hotels are sterile and it's hard to find anything resembling quiet and calm. Harrington House is a 25 minute drive from down town, a short drive (and $5 parking) to the T - which is 10 minutes to downtown and 20 to the Hines Convention Center. The room was perfect, the shared bathroom immaculate and the continental breakfast great - do have the home made granola (if you tolerate gluten and nuts) with the yogurt and fresh fruit. There are gluten free cereals and fruits - as well as homemade muffins and cookies, as well. It was simply icing on a fabulous cake that the owners were welcoming, engaging, and a joy to talk with... though it may have helped that when I was very young I live in the Cambridge neighborhood Joey - a professional comedian - grew up in and, in my teens, lived in the NJ town next to the one where Maggie's lived, we even graduated from neighboring high schools in the same year.
Good location very friendly owner great breakfast. Shared bathroom, however not a problem
Perfect locale in Winthrop - the airport was more scenic than intrusive, and the waterfront was just as close and lovely as we had hoped. We lounged on the front porch for a while, soaking in the view and the sea air. Comfortable bed, nice (shared) bathroom, and quiet - only when I went into the hallway did I hear my neighbors snoring. Breakfast was nice (fresh muffins), but eggs and meat (bacon, sausage, etc) would have been better. Limited indoor common-room seating - I'm glad the place was nearly empty while we were there, we would have had to fight for a chair.
The location and the price. It is not really close to subway stations. If you are carrying large/heavy bags you will need a taxi.
I liked the location near Harvard Square. I enjoyed the breakfast, which had some tasty items such as hard-boiled eggs and delicious little pastries. I also thought the staff was helpful and friendly. Finally the free WiFi was a nice perk, which came in handy because I brought my laptop. My room was tiny, and I needed to walk into the hallway to use the bathroom. Definitely felt like being in someone's house, which can feel a little awkward when you are surrounded by strangers.
The shared bathroom was very clean and well-stocked. There was more than one bathroom on my floor, so each room is just steps from the bathroom and I didn't encounter any waiting situations.
The staff were cordial and efficient. The guest house was well maintained and nicely appointed. Everyone was extremely helpful. The room was small and expensive. Sharing a bath can prove problematic.
The beds were comfortable and the TV large. I liked the free wireless. The first room offered was extremely small. Also, there was a musty smell to the room we did have.
Breakfast and snacks were great. Nice community atmosphere.
A nice and warm place - particular the dinning room where you can always go and get a cup of coffee or even a piece of cake. The room is small, sound insulation not very good, and the bed a bit too soft.
The staff was wonderful. It was a pleasant surprise in the midst of Cambridge.
The breakfast was very nice. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. Very pleasant all around.
Location, home-like. Price indicated when booking did not match actual price. Room was oppressively hot, and too small for a queen sized bed.
Quiet, proximity to Harvard campus
Walking distance to Porter sq and Harvard Sq. Poor breakfast
The hotel had Gorgeous decor, good breakfast food, parking available, and was a short walk to the T. More towel racks in the bathroom.
Near T stop Good price --Overall it got the job done for a business trip, but I would choose a corporate hotel chain for the same price next time. Cold and noisy room because of not tight windows Not efficiently run or professional Breakfast was corporate continental breakfast, not a "bed and breakfast" breakfast Greeted at the front door like I didn't belong, but other than that one staff person, others were nice Trouble with providing receipts for business travel
Nice breakfast. A pleasant 10 minute walk to Davis Square and another 15 minutes to Tufts. My room was in a different building from reception/breakfast - this was not really a problem in good weather, but would be less than ideal in the rain/snow/cold.
A very well kept B & B on Boston's Mass. Ave. A 5 min walk from Davis station on the red line. Wifi works, breakfast is standard. I especially liked the very friendly talk we had when I arrived.
I liked the hospitality. I don't really have anything else nice to say about this experience. The room was way too small for $189 a night. It was way away from anything. There was absolutely no parking there. Privacy was an issue because every little room was too close. I was very disappointed.
This hotel is well managed with a convevient location near Harvard University.
Lovely, friendly and perfectly located between Harvard Square and Porter Square.
The breakfasts were absolutely fabulous. During our visit, there were some road works in front of the Inn, which may make it difficult for those with cars.
Accessible to Harvard College. Charming historic home. Free parking. Great breakfast.
Pleasant welcome. Excellent breakfast
I have stayed there several times over the years and have found all the rooms comfrotable. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts and breakfast service are always special. Each room is unique.
We did not enjoy our stay - room was tiny - a single at most. Plumbing system started at 5.30 a.m. - our room was on top floor. Breakfast good. However we would not recommend.
Nice room well appointed clean and a very good breakfast. Each room was unique and the staff was very friendly b Construction noise but that was not the hotel's fault.
Individual 'feel' and great location
The staff was very friendly and the breakfasts were outstanding. The street directly outside the Inn was being worked on and was very noisy early in the morning. I think guests should have been warned of this work in advance which had been going on for some weeks.
The ambiance and the company. The gathering spaces were so clean and well-apportioned. I did prepare my morning meal, and was quite satisfied. Wide selection of on-trend coffees. A black-out curtain in the rooms to shield against outside light would be appreciated. All the guests were pleasant and interesting, but I could have benefited by other guests' mindfulness of wearing heavy shoes inside the house.
