    Location is ideal in center of Harvard square.

    Overpriced, bed was comfortable but bathroom was not clean did not use the shower. Can hear everything in surrounding rooms.

    Location was excellent as was the shower

    The room was small, little closet space (ironing board sticking out of closet area was a hazard), no light by one chair, thin wall—noise from adjoining room was unwelcome. Staff on arrival was not welcoming.

    The bed was comfortable, the rooms newly remodeled and the location unbeatable. The staff was friendly, room was clean, and nicely appointed.

    The rooms were in no way soundproof. We could hear everything in hallway. But it’s an older property. And the pillows were mounds of stiff batting.

    Very basic accommodations. Not very comfortable bed. Tiny bathroom with shelf missing from the wall.
