My wife and I stayed at Parkside for a romantic/sightseeing weekend- Friday to Monday- and it was exactly what we hoped for. The location was outstanding, in walking distance to the heart of Harvard and Cambridge, in a very quiet neighborhood, and walking distance to the train. The hotel was very cozy, very clean, and the manager, David, was at... More

Excellent service, comfortable room. I was delayed and didn't arrive until the very small hours but David was there to meet me and check me in. Very quiet location within easy walking distance of Harvard square.

I spent a week at Parkside On Ellery, very cozy, quiet and charming place. David, the owner, is very friendly and discrete. I also enjoyed breakfast, of continental type and healthy. Stefano (from Italy)

Our stay was lovely! The rooms are neat, clean, and all unique. David was very friendly and helpful and the value is terrific. About a five minute walk to Harvard Square it's super convenient. Highly recommended especially for parents visiting kids at Harvard or one of the many colleges in Boston.

The room, breakfast, and price were all very good, but the location was fabulous, opposite a small park, close to Harvard Square. There was a small grocery and many restaurants within a few blocks. On street parking was not a problem, much to my surprise.

Parkside on Ellery was a charming place to stay, and at a considerable discount to Cambridge-area hotels of the same quality. If you are there to visit Harvard it is an ideal location. My business was actually in Kendall Square, so it was somewhat less convenient, but I was easily able to get a cab in the mornings when I... More

Wow, words cannot describe how comfortable we were at our recent stay at Parkside On Ellery, David, the Owner, was incredibly friendly, the rooms were immaculate, and the common areas were very well kept. Besides the local, this B&B gave an incredible nights sleep. Upon getting our day started the next day we were treated to a really nice Breakfast... More

If you enjoy style, homeyness, cleanliness, proximity to everything Cambridge has to offer, breakfasts served to your room, and a proprietor who cares about everyone who stays at his inn, this is for you. We have stayed there about 5 or 6 times and would not consider going anywhere else.

My husband and I traveled to Boston in October. The Parkside was the perfect location (within walking distance to Harvard Square). We stayed in the Victorian room upstairs. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The room is large and spacious and overlooks the street. It is a cozy and cute room. I was quite disappointed that the B&B... More

We stayed in the Victorian room for five nights as part of a visit to see our daughter at Harvard. We were in easy walking distance to the campus and the Cambridge cafés. The room is large with pretty views of wisteria and trees, which were in full autumn color. The gorgeous antique bed is small for a couple, however.... More
