Harvard Square Hotel, Cambridge
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.

Great location.
The room is basic, updated and comfortable. The bathroom is pretty small with little space to but things. The bed was comfortable but pillows were all thick for side sleepers. It would have been nice to have variety. Awesome location in Harvard Square.

I found some hairs in the bathroom. Also, I could hear everything happening in the room next door to mine, it was like we were sharing a space. The rooms definitely need more soundproofing, please. For the price I paid I expected more.

Very clean.
The bed was super comfortable! Tons of restaurants around which is good since no restaurant. Complimentary coffee, tea, and water in the lobby were nice.
