Score from 405 reviews Wonderful
What's there not to like!! Location is good and only a 5 min walk to Harvard central station, some really good restaurants / bars around. The staff are attentive without being in your face. The hotel itself is very welcoming with a lovely reception area and the room is large and relaxing. If you're looking for a small hotel with personal service then you could do a lot worse than stay here and it's very well priced
What a wonderful experience!
Small complaint. Dingy towels and pillows should be double pillow cased ,pillows also too flat .
The location is convenient near Harvard Square
The room is too small, there is no breakfast
Small size with cozy room. Lovely decor & close to Harvard.
Elevator decor needs upgrade
Excellent free coffee in lobby as well as juice. Helpful staff. Intimate atmosphere. Comfortable bed. Attractive design.
Our room was a bit crowded; no good work area. Other rooms looked as though they had a better seating and work area.
The room, while small, was very comfortable and the bathroom was nice sized. Loved that the property was so close to Harvard Square and public transportation!
Not having a restaurant or at least breakfast provided.
Good beds, excellent linens and toiletries as well as tasteful decorations make this a great choice for staying in Cambridge. Ideally located for visiting Harvard. The original room we booked was pretty small, so we changed to a king room at the front which was excellent. Coffee, juice and soft drinks in the lobby were a pleasant treat after braving the storm that hit Boston during our stay.
Some rooms are very small-particularly if, like us, A few days in Boston is just part of a longer trip, so you have lots of luggage.
Wonderful location - close to the head of the Charles site, public transportation and many dining establishments. Complimentary soft drinks. Helpful and friendly staff. Beautifully appointed rooms.
No wine or beer available at this time - think it is temporary?
We stayed in the beginning of October, and were happy with everything we experienced related to the hotel. It is clean with friendly staff. It is convenient to everything Cambridge has to offer.
You could hear training passing beneath the building if you are a light sleeper. Ask for a room in a quieter part of the building. We were too tired each day and slept well without any problem.
felt like the subway was under my bed!!! Do not sleep on the first floor. There were many loud people next door and in the street.
Beautiful room with ambient heat in the bathroom floor. Lots of clothes hangers. Small patio off the room. Friendly staff willing to accommodate our needs (we checked in very late). Complementary water, juice, coffee, etc. available at all hours in the lobby. Fantastic location.
Awkwardly situated shower door made it hard to get in and out without either dousing yourself in potentially freezing or scalding water or soaking the floor. Small room overall, though it was well appointed and extremely clean.
Right beside Harvard. Short walk to T station
Noise from underground during operating hours on lower floors
We didn't stay long enough to form any other opinions.
It was quiet. The staff were very helpful, the hotel was comfortable to be in. The hotel atmosphere made it easy to relax.
I liked all.
Very clean, comfortable room; right near Harvard Square. Great, helpful staff, quiet, walking distance to public transportation, everywhere really. Very good shower.
No chest of drawers for clothes.
My boyfriend and I were meeting up with a friend who works at Harvard so the location was perfect. It's also really close to the Harvard T station (5 min walk). Very easy to get to, and didn't have to worry about parking because they have a valet garage under the building. That being said, valet parking for $34 is their only option on site. The room was very clean and I loved the decor. They have a nespresso machine in the lobby for guests. I would definitely stay here again.
I would have preferred to pay less for parking.
Very good localisation
Noise coming from the street, problems with parking, price a little bit too high
The staff was truly amazing and generous with suggestions and the location was perfect. The decor in the building was beautiful and serene.
The paper thin walls and windows made it impossible to sleep. Whether it was the garbage pickup in the morning, the people out on the street (who's conversations we could hear clear as a bell) or the constant hearing of other patrons go in and out of their rooms. Also, the rooms are quite teeny tiny. My husband and I commented that we would feel bad for anyone tall or of larger stature who had to stay in these rooms.
Complimentary drinks in lounge area, really makes a difference when travelling. Quiet, clean and 5 mins to Harvard Square.
Front desk exceptionally helpful and pleasant. Centrally located. Rooms well appointed, tastefully decorated and comfortable.
Parking until 10 pm after checkout with no extra charge was excellent and much appreciated!!
Microwave and/or fridge in rooms would have been convenient
