Exceptional 10.0
just one thing i did not understand, somebody wake up me at 0830 to check out but my check out was at 11:00... excepted that small incident, it is a great place.

Great location and so cozy feel like home!!
The location is amazing, perfect for our son to have a college tour the next day cause 10 min walk distance. No worry about breakfast...yet there is snack, coffee, and tea serve until 11pm.

Good 6.0
The Inn felt a bit outdated and the breakfast was not great. The location was perfect within walking distance of Harvard University and Harvard Square.

Fair 4.0
Expensive for what it is. Disappointing.
Make sure to pay close attention when booking - I didn't expect, at the price I paid, that I would not have a bathroom in my room. The staff were friendly and nice, but the BnB itself felt rundown. The small room I was given had a fire escape right at the window, where the bed was directly positioned, which made the room feel like it lacked privacy. The window was cracked open and it took me some maneuvering to actually get it closed so there wasn't a draft. There was no iron in the room, so it was really not appropriate for a business trip. All in all, of all of the places I've booked through, it was the most disappointing. It would have been bearable if it had been half the price. I couldn't stay there. Despite the cost, I forfeited the money and booked an amazing place through Hotwire.

The Irving House - A Warm Place in the Storm
The Irving House is well appointed, clean and cozy. I arrived at 1am in a snow storm but was able to park and was immediately serviced. The breakfast, and windowed basement room in which it is served, were outstanding. And the service, particularly by Zoia and the breakfast room staff, was even better! They made my experience exceptional. I immediately booked another trip and look forward to many stays there.
