    Flat, hard pillows that housekeeper replaced at our request second day. Mediocre breakfast, even continental can be much better than this. Bad shower, so used shared bath down the hall.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I did not stay because they had no parking available and I could not park my vehicle. They have very very limited parking and we arrived late and it was full. When I complained at the desk I was told the parking was my problem no theirs we looked for parking on the street and couldn’t find any so even though I had driven six hours from Maine I got back on the road and drove four more hours to home so we missed a sightseeing day in Boston.

    Enjoyed the House

    This is a small bed and breakfast. Breakfast was rather modest. The location is not on the Harvard Campus but abouot a 7 to 10 minute walk to Harvard and Harvard Square. Rooms are quite small but adequate. No refrigerator in the room but one is supplied for renters. The House was quiet and beds were comfortable. Beds were smaller than expected. Lighting was good and the room had only two electrical outlets. Showers were old school with a curtain and a prefab shower stall. All in all I enjoyed the House but it is not a high-end hotel. if you are looking for a high-end stay, you need to look elsewhere.

    Exactly as Promised

    The place is exactly as promised in the ads. Friendly staff, clean, good breakfast. Parking is very tight but appreciated as it is rare to find in Cambridge. Bedding and mattress were comfortable. Nice touches for comfort and convenience throughout property so you felt at home not like you were in a hotel.

    Tiny and clean

    Tiny hotel with tiny rooms and tiny parking which will take your parking skills to the limit (I saw people scratching their car). Yet it's cozy, well maintained, super clean and very welcoming. Nice small lobby with free coffee, fruits and cookies. 10 mins walk from Harvard yard which is a great location. Breakfast is also good. If you are ok with small places this is the place for you.

    Satisfactory stay...thank you!

    !I would say our i night stay was overall satisfactory. I would rate it as similar to a Motel 6 Plus. Few frills but certainly comfortable. Nice location for our needs in Cambridge. Clean, yet small room, small bathroom, very quiet inside and out.
