I liked it
My room was a bit small (based on US experience) but fine. Charming hotel. Great breakfast. Great area. Would easily come back. (I was only there for a couple of nights - business trip).

Satisfied.
Rooms were very nice, spacious, with an interesting bathroom which had a rain fall shower. Very close to college, and nice area to stroll. Room rate included breakfast, it was just a continental, eggs were an extra cost. Nice view from restaurant on 6th floor.

Was a good hotel, but not great.
Only a couple small issues/nags with the hotel. First was the bed. It was way too firm for my liking. My bed at home is fairly firm, but this was almost too much for me. The fan for the heater sounded like it was going out and unfortunately did its part to keep me up. The view from the restaurant was amazing both at night and during the day. Overall it was a pretty descept hotel and would stay there again. I think the price was a bit high for the room and amenities.

Great Experience in Cambridge
A very nice hotel, the Six Bar is great for Breakfast and Dinner, the nearby spa has services for anyone looking to workout or relax. The location is the best in the city everything is a 10minute walk away.
