I should let you know that the vent in the bathroom did not function. Nonetheless, great place! I will highly recommend. Thanks.
After about 1 minute in the shower, there was no hot water. None. I called the front desk and they said they had no idea what the problem was. I think for the price level of this hotel, there should be hot water.
Very convenient to Harvard and MIT. Clear, friendly, good value, restaurants nearby.
Did not have a gym
Friendly, helpful staff
Everything is so small and cramped, and the beds were not very comfortable.
What hotel has TWIN BEDS?! Huge disappointment. Would not recommend
