    The Best of Porter Square

    For the Porter Square area, this is the best hotel to select. Its filial, Hotel 1868, to the contrary has hideous décor and a largely absent staff. At PSH the staff is always on hand and are very friendly. The individual rooms are small and crowded, but the deluxe rooms are more spacious and there are deluxe two-room suites as well. The sliding doors of the bathrooms in all the rooms are an annoyance, since they don't retain closed position. You have to hold them closed if you're close enough. The location of the hotel is wonderful, with the T (metro) and bus service right outside. Many cafés and restaurants are nearby and the Porter Square shopping area across the street features a large and well-stocked Star Market, a CVS drugstore, a Tags Ace hardware store, and Porter Square Books, a fine bookstore with a separate Zing Café inside and outside seating.

    Convenient and comfortable boutique hotel

    Super conveniently located: good eats, the T, and shopping options are within a few minutes walk from the hotel. The staff was very helpful and I appreciated that the hotel was super quiet.

    Nondescript. Two twin beds, one less comfortable than the other. In/out no frills. Fine.

    Small but worth it.

    This hotel was located only 10-15 min from Boston and about 5-8 minutes from Harvard square.The Hotel room was extremely clean and safe. The rooms are small but that was not an issue for us since we stopped to shower, get dressed and sleep. Also valet parking was about 28 USD so if you’re driving in be aware of such but the staff was great ! Also, the hotel location is great ! Target was in walking distance,DD was across the street and there are restaurants in the area as well. I would stay here again.

    Everyone was helpful and pleasant and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Nice little restaurant downstairs, way more sophisticated than the usual hotel restaurant. The only complaint I have is that the room fan turned on and off noisily throughout the night, making it harder to sleep. My friend wasn’t bothered by this and I expect most people would not be. I am particularly noise sensitive.

    The hotel was very nice. However, the twin beds were not comfortable. I felt like I could feel the coils in the center of the bed.

    We booked late so they were only a few rooms left.

    We booked late so they were only a few rooms left. However the round room with all of the claim beautiful light and view we loved we are getting ready to book for more nights it’s a little tight but I loved that you had a safe in the room and that you were so eco-friendly we look forward to being there again in September
