Very comfortable atmosphere. Nice neighborhood conveniently located to universities and public transit. Onsite parking. Helpful staff. All in all, a great find in Cambridge!
Breakfasts were fine, but nothing extraordinary.
Beautiful room and property, very comfortable bed in this lovely old house located on a quiet street in the Harvard district of Boston. Short walk from the local store and close to the buses and trains into town. Good breakfast and just very cozy.
Very expensive i felt, and the most exspensive guest house and hotel during our 17 day trip to the US, including New York & Niagara Falls Canada. A lovely place to stay but a good $300 over priced compared to other better guest houses we stayed in. Would love to stay again but the price would put me off unfortunately, otherwise a great stay.
Most of staff were very pleasant and helpful.Good location,but you must be careful at night if your going to Mass ave /Central square too many characters hanging around.
Stairs only to 2nd and 3 rd floors ,steep .
I liked the spacious rooms, the walkable, safe surroundings, the parking, and the public area.
The rooms can be noisy with voices outside the room and wooden floors overhead.
Boring breakfasts--too similar
We will probably return
- The room was beautiful (antiques) and very clean - The breakfast was delicious - The location (to visit Boston) was good -- near a T station
- A little costly
Right off of Harvard Street Close to a lot of things.
T station about 1.5 blocks away. In summer, this is kind of a big deal. AC was a window unit.
The staff was very helpful. Gave a map of Cambridge and gave advice on where to go and what to do. The buffet breakfast is very good. One hot entree and many other goodies. You won't go away hungary.
We could hear people above us. Get a room on a higher floor. Also, we heard those in the morning taking a shower. I strongly recommend bringing ear plugs and a mask for an enjoyable sleep.
Individuality, comfortable bed and room, congenial staff and excellent low key breakfast.
Perhaps some new pillows would be appreciated.
The staff was friendly and very helpful. It has on site parking, a real plus. Bathroom was very clean and the towels were good. I would recommend it to anyone.
The breakfast selections were strange and not very good. There were enough choices so we were not hungry.
Loved the variety and attention to quality for breakfast The place is charming.
The room and bathroom were clean, comfortable, quiet, and roomy. The breakfast was adequate with reasonable variety.
The location is excellent if you need to get to Harvard or MIT quickly.
The breakfast was terrible- My husband saw a staff member preparing an omelet, and asked if he could get one. He was told he had to "reserve" one in advance...If we had the time, we would have gone out to a restaurant, the food was that bad. We needed an advance degree to figure out the Direct TV, as well. If I had it to do over again, I would have figured out local restaurants for breakfast.
Beautiful house, clean and functional. Good breakfast. Personnel kind and helpful.
For a single person it gets rather expensive...
Everything was just right, from a spotless room and helpful staff to a hearty breakfast convenient location. The on-site parking was also much appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and would certainly recommend it to other Cambridge visitors.
interesting, historical, good value
Everything was great! Very quaint and cozy! Wonderful, helpful, and friendly staff. Centrally located and easy to find, I'd recommend it any visiter of Cambridge, whether you're using public transit or driving!
location was terrific
breakfast was fair
Location; Cosy accomodation with a homy feeling; Breakfast; Big room; Cost benefit
Could be a little noisy if other guest are roaming around, but this is to expect in old houses.
