Score from 406 reviews Wonderful
I appreciated the genuine friendliness of the staff without being overbearing.
The bed was a bit too soft for my taste.
The rooms are alot nicer than you would think when just looking from outside. The staff was helpful and the bed was very comfortable.
Tons of water leaks in the lobby. Didn't bother me much, but it was kind of weird.
Verrrry comfortable beds, free quality espresso in lobby and really helpful staff.
The room was very nice and clean.

Totally inadequate closet space
Excellent, friendly, helpful staff!
Such a beautiful hotel with the nicest staff, they are so sweet! Very close to Boston without being in the city. Lots of restaurants, parking and shops around.
The only thing I didn't love was the slow wifi and the outdated tv. My remote didn't work? Technology is unreliable of course so it's not a big deal.
A microwave in the room would be great
The location of this hotel is excellent, just steps from the T and near many shops and cafes. The staff was friendly and helpful. Being able to check our bags there before and after our stay was convenient.
The elevator broke and it was a long walk up to our 4th floor room.
decent room close to everything
long distance phone charges were put on the bill when no phone calls were made. the $20 was removed only after a few calls and the manager accused the occupant of making the calls
Location, price and cleanliness of room.
Was told reservation was for prior night when I checked in. I had to research and show that it was for correct night. Then I was told it was actually for next night. If I had not checked and verified, I would have been charged for an extra night for no reason. Staff should have figured out on their own. No apology from staff about mistake. TV remote didn't work.
Friendly staff. Free wifi. Great location. Complimentary coffee
I would have like a more adjustable showerhead and a better image on the tv. But these are just nice to haves
Location was great! The staff was very pleasant and helpful.
We had no control of the temp. in the room. That was a major negative for my family.
Cute, simple hotel. Can't beat the location
Room is small but very comfortable. Great for solo or couple.
This hotel is in the perfect location. A friend recommended this hotel while we were in Cambridge with a group of families because of the closeness to everything and she was correct. We loved the stay.
It was a little small but still worth the stay. Everything was very tight but knew this going in and we were more concerned with being close. Staff was extremely accommodations.
Great location. Nice bedroom. Good water pressure, shower. Compares to 3 1/2 star hotels in Cambridge in tems of the room. Lobby and front desk was pleasant and clean.
Nothing I did'nt really like. Bathroom could have a bit more counter space, but at least there was a shelf.
Stylish hotel located in the heart of Harvard Square. Perfect answer to see my Harvard student in a weekend. Over the last four years, I have tried at least 10 different B&Bs and hotels at varying distances away from Harvard's campus. They all end up costing me $ in taxis or precious time spent with my child. Never again. Harvard Square is my hotel from here forward.
Clean sheets, plenty of pillows, great location but not much more.
Not even a coffee maker in the room. Don't come here if you are looking for amenities, there are few. Also the staff commandeers the elevator during cleaning so we had to climb up and down the four flights of stairs with our luggage on both arrival and departure.
Location and price.
Slow elevators and compact rooms.
Maybe the proximity of the Harvard University allows to charge overrated prices. No chance to have a decent breakfast.
Faucet was broken
Trendy room with a window that opened for ventilation. Great location in Harvard Square. Tea and coffee in reception was free to guests. Friendly staff. Very convenient parking below hotel
Housekeeping staff are used to business guests departing early so will knock the door. Make sure you use privacy notice if you want to sleep in.
