Clean and modern hotel close to train station
The hotel is located very close to the Porter Square train station, which makes it very easy to get to central Boston in about 20-30 minutes. The area also has many restaurants and convenience stores, so you can get anything you need within a few minutes walking distance. The hotel and the room were clean and modern. Wi-fi worked perfectly fine. I would be happy to stay here again if the opportunity arises.

This is a wonderful boutique hotel, nestled in the heart of Cambridge. It's location is perfect for every imaginable need: the subway station, markets, pharmacies, restaurants, a hospital, an urgent care facility. Harvard is a pleasant 15 minute walk. The staff (from front desk, to valet parking, to restaurant servers and hosts) is pleasant and knowledgeable of the area. Though the rooms are smaller than large, commercial hotels, they allow for plenty of movement. The water pressure is very good, the beds (and pillows!) are extremely comfortable, and temperature controls are easy to use. The hotel partners with a gym across the street, and there is plenty of outdoor space to run/exercise. I will stay there again when in the area.
