I stayed in this B&B about a month ago. We booked it following great reviews, and the only thing I can say is that we were extremely disappointed. When we arrived at the address we were surprised at how shabby the house was. It looked like it hasn’t been renovated since the Victorian times. The interior proved to be much... More

I booked this B&B based on the great reviews and got seriously disappointed. The standard has obviously dropped since those reviews were written. The place was not clean, beds uncomfortable, bathroom not cleaned regularly. The towels were not changed in 5 days. This could be a great place because of the location (few minutes to Harvard Square) but because of... More

The only reason that this doesn't get 5 stars is that it is way overpriced. With those rates, one would expect a fancy hotel, but this B&B offers something quite different than that. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. Location is great, with a 10 minute walk to Harvard Square, metro, and restaurants. With only three rooms, you actually... More

A Bed & Breakfast in Cambridge is a lovely B&B set on the 3rd floor of a traditional home. My son & I spent 5 days there while exploring the city. - Room: our room felt smallish because we had 2 twin beds, however it was extremely comfortable. In particular the bedding is super nice with down comforters and pillows.... More

It is obvious that Byron's, Karen's and Doane's passion is hospitality. During our stay they listened, facilitated and helped us to find our way in the B&B, Cambridge, and the surroundings. We had booked the West-room which is on the back of the house next to the kitchen and in front of the bathroom. The rooms were very clean and... More

I had a great time here during my stay in September. Byron was very helpful and made sure that our stay was as good as it was. The breakfast was great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a place in Cambridge or Boston area. The public transit is also very good making it easy to get around... More

I spent a week staying at this B & B for a work trip- and I'd strongly recommend it to others. IT's a beautiful old building, located in one of the most picturesque parts of Boston, and walking distance from great restaurants and Harvard Sq. The owners and the manager also really care about you having a good experience, and... More

Having travelled for 24 hours in total from Ha Noi, Viet Nam to Cambridge, I finally landed in the small but cosy B&B late in the evening and was wellcomed by Byron Jordan. He gave me the opportunity to choose the room and advised me which room was less noisy. I immediately felt like I was at home with care... More

Suddenly without a place to stay, I was fortunate enough to get a room at "A B & B in Cambridge". The guesthouse exceeded my expectation, to say the least. The staff is super friendly and serves guests delicious crepés for breakfast! Everything is neat and clean; my room was good and the kitchen a clean and cozy place. While... More

Rooms are hard to come by during graduation month! Our daughter found this non-descript B&B, and they had a room available for our six-day stay! The outside of this B&B is very non-descript. You would not even know a B&B resided inside! The room we occupied was very comfy, as well as nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable (I... More
