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.
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
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 location and the price. It is not really close to subway stations. If you are carrying large/heavy bags you will need a taxi.
The breakfast was very nice. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. Very pleasant all around.
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.
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 staff was wonderful. It was a pleasant surprise in the midst of Cambridge.
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.
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
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.
The hotel had Gorgeous decor, good breakfast food, parking available, and was a short walk to the T. More towel racks in the bathroom.
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.
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.
This hotel is well managed with a convevient location near Harvard University.
Walking distance to Porter sq and Harvard Sq. Poor breakfast
A beautifully restored 19th century mansion with period furnished rooms, friendly and helpful staff and an excellent cold buffet breakfast. The building is still in the process of being restored and could benefit from wardrobes and easy chairs in the bedrooms. Felt a bit too authentically Victorian at times.
Beautifully restored home. I loved the detail and the attention given to the integrity of the hope and keeping as much of the original work as possible. They have done a wonderful job. Bed was very comfortable and we had everything we needed in our rooms. The cookies at night were a nice touch as well. Very nice staff and breakfast was delicious! Would reccomend this place. location is a little further from boston than expected but traffic is not bad and Patriot Place is very close for dining and shopping.
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 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.
Pleasant welcome. Excellent breakfast
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.
Accessible to Harvard College. Charming historic home. Free parking. Great breakfast.
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.
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.
Individual 'feel' and great location
Lovely, friendly and perfectly located between Harvard Square and Porter Square.
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.
Location Bed was uncomfortable
Friendly service, location, very reasonable rate for that location, quaint room
Very clean inn. Good location walking distance to Harvard/ Boston. Close to MIT. small bathroom
Helping attitude of staffs. breakfast was too cold.
Staff The sheets and towels had way too much perfumed detergent.
Breakfast is poor, for such amount of stars should have been better, no warm food at all, just eggs
Although breakfast time is from 7:00, most foods and drinks were ready very early. It was nice for leaving early in the morning. And the location was very quiet. The room had no bath (only shower).
My account was debited twice, as of three days of checking out it has still not come off.
The location is excellent and the staff was perfectly friendly. Room was adequately clean. Room was very small and awkward, extremely basic appointments - would have been fine at a bargain price but for almost $200 per night after taxes, it was far from a bargain. To be fair i didn't find anything cheaper in Cambridge, but still i was disappointed - I should have stayed further out and taken the T in
The staff is extremely helpful. Rooms were very clean. The location is great with easy access to the T, Harvard Square, etc. The breakfast room is not very comfortable. Too small, no tables of appropriate height to eat off of. Food is mediocre; but not really any different than I would eat at home...
Location is pretty good, with 10 mins to Harvard square and 20 mins to Porter square; fairly stable internet. The room was tiny, so was the TV (and placed on a high cupboard); no option to not have towels replaced everyday; have to go out to the hallway to make tea/coffee; slow internet.
Location, close to Harvard Square and the the t Price, although Boston is an expensive city to visit
The front desk person was the most patient person I have ever met. Amazing service and great vibe.
Nice, clean place. Friendly proprietors and staff. Good breakfast. Would come back and recommend it to friends. Our room had its own bathroom, probably would go with that option the next time too. And yes, the location is terrific!
Room is clean, bathroom was just outside. In the past I've been in hostels all over the damn world and that's what this was to me – a hostel for adults. From other reviews I've seen people are expecting some full on BnB experience that is not, but they do offer a free continental breakfast if you're up early. If you're into documenting your luxurious accommodations to show off – this is not for you. If you're more into being in a clean place that's centrally located where you're going to sleep and refresh – 100% yes. The place was full and yet we saw no one and never waited for the bathroom. Friendly staff that got us in and out efficiently.
Not much Shared bathroom/shower, bed in a closet style lodging. Not a B&B.
Convenient location. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of street noise made it difficult to sleep. Decor was charming if outdated. Not worth the expense.
