What a charming and elegant boutique hotel in the heart of Cambridge. The rooms are beautiful and well-decorated. They are on the smaller side, as are most rooms in big cities, but very comfortable. We were upgraded to a room with a patio which was such a nice addition. Amenities were top notch and the front desk staff was more... More

Awesome location for visiting Harvard University. Clean, interesting décor. Friendly staff. Very strange bread-type items provided in the morning. Across the street from a great burger place with 29 kinds of burgers but also interesting salads (Boston Burger).

Small upscale hotel. Located perfectly for Harvard activities: 3 blocks from the museums, 4 from Tercentenary Theater and Widener. Lovely appointments. The "junior" and less pricey rooms are tight but comfortable. The lobby was congenial. The breakfast was modest in selection but elegant nevertheless. A gem both for comfort and location.

Had a perfect one night stay and this intimate hotel. The staff was caring, the location ideal, the room charming. Great service in terms of valet parking, front desk help, late check out when requested. Couldn't be better.

Love the proximity to Harvard University! The T-station is within walking distance which gives you access to the entire Boston area. The front desk staff is helpful and courteous, the rooms are beautifully decorated, and the bed is very comfortable. A bit expensive but worth every penny!

Most say I'm a big fan of hotel chains but this time we felt like taking something we don't know. Had wonderful service sweet staff. There was a problem with our fire alarm in our room and they fixed it asap and also gave us a small price adjustment. They where also very helpful in helping us get around

Appears to be an old house that has been converted, so rooms are small and a little different. My room had a bay window that overlooked Mass Ave, but noise was not an issue although you can hear the subway rumble below and church bells in the morning. No restaurant or bar, but plenty nearby. Great choice if you like... More

The hotel is definitely small on the size. But it's very charming and comfortable. Easy access to Harvard Sq, and the restaurants concierge recommended was great! The staff is very helpful and friendly! Would love to visit again if back to that area!

One word, Phenomenal! To start off, the staffs at the front desk is EXTREMELY helpful and understanding. The location is just perfect, right off Harvard Ave. and Harvard Yard and transportation can be set up by the staffs or a 5 minute walk to the train station. The rooms is outstanding; quiet and cozy. I would recommend this hotel to... More
