Very Good 8.0
Clean, excellent location. Great hotel for biz
The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very modern. The location is perfect and really accessible. There are not a lot of bells and whistles but this is a perfect stay for business. The hallways can be a little noisy and you can hear a lot of noise in the rooms, but a part from that, it was perfect and I would definitely stay again.

Clean, comfortable and well-priced for Cambridge
Clean, comfortable, minimalist hotel. A lot better priced than most of the other hotels in the Cambridge area. One major missing item for me was a lack of a gym. There may be some private ones nearby that offer day passes - I did not look - although nothing is as convenient as having a gym inside the hotel itself. Perfect for a short stay.

GREAT location, but...
I chose this hotel based on location- right off Harvard Square. The location can’t be beat if you are there visiting Harvard - you can walk everywhere. The staff is helpful and friendly, but the hotel itself is not that great. The rooms are small, bathroom is small, ceilings are low, and they don’t have Hi Def TV’s or breakfast. They do have decent WiFi, it is not noisy, and it was clean. For the price, I expected more. That being said, if you care only about location, it is great and still cheaper than the (nicer) Hotel next door.

A great boutique hotel at the heart of Harvard Sq.
Very nice boutique hotel. The room was small but clean, modern and well designed. The location is fantastic, at the heart of Harvard Square with plenty to do, eat, and see within a 5 mins walk. The only part of my stay that was not totally positive was the lack of response from the front desk when we tried to contact them multiple times one evening to get some information. Even calling through the external line didn't lead to anyone answering our call. My only option was to get out of bed, get dressed and go downstairs in person to locate someone who could answer a simple question.

Basic hotel. Staff was rather indifferent towards guests. Comfy bed! No blackout curtains.
