One of the other reviewers suggests that this is more like a small hotel than a typical B&B and I agree. The staff is accommodating, but impersonal. The rooms are clean and ours was small (201). There are none of the special amenities that typically one would expect in a bed and breakfast. The breakfast had hard boiled eggs, cereal,... More

Coming to cambridge can be sometimes annoying: few hotels and very expensibe. This b&b is a very good choice. The price is affordable, continental breakfast is included, wifi connection is included. You are 500 m from the metro. I will come likely.

This property is in a remote corner of Cambridge but is easily accessible to Harvard via Mass Ave. Use a map and not your GPS! It is clean and has free parking if you arrive early enough. If not, I don't know what you do. The "new" rooms lack character and the lobby of the main building needs all of... More

We stayed here the week end of our wedding, leaving our house to family and enjoying a little quiet time and luxury for ourselves. They offer both traditional and contemporary rooms. Our traditional room was beautifully decorated and had every possible convenience (except no bathtub-- but great shower). Breakfast is in another lovely room and was very diverse and of... More

Conveniently located on the main road to downtown Cambridge, 10 minutes to the Porter Square T. Nice upper-scale grocery store across the street and walking distance to Frank's steakhouse. More a hotel than a family-run B&B. Breakfast is OK (although they don't serve any yogurt).

My wife and I went to Cambridge/Somerville to see my cousin in a play in Davis Square, a ten-minute walk from the B&B (and Porter Square looks to be about the same going down Mass Ave). IDEAL LOCATION. We stayed in the contemporary building rather than the Victorian (where the very nice continental breakfast was laid out the next morning... More

I stayed for a few days here and I had no issues whatsoever during my stay. The rooms are a good value and very clean. I stayed in the part to the side and it was very quiet. I was most touched when my credit card was found by another guest after my departure and the owner immediately mailed it... More

I came from Asia, and I was surprised that the staffs who can speak Mandarin- that is very helpful for me- an international scholar who needs guidance about that region. The front desk staff did spend a great deal of time to help me determine the most inexpensive means to get to the Wrenthem shopping mall. I realize they do... More

We booked in to this B&B mindful of some of the reviews it had received especially in relation to the rudeness of one or more of the proprietors. We arrived after dark on a freezing evening, left at the driveway by our taxi. We knocked on the door and were 'welcomed' in by who I guess is one of the... More

Way overpriced for a tiny, poorly cleaned, stuffy room with no frig, very small TV, cheap amenities and abysmal cold breakfast offerings. Free parking and friendly desk clerks were the only redeeming features. Wouldn't stay there again.

ACambridgeHouse, Manager at A Cambridge House B & B Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for taking time to share your opinion. You did not mention when you stayed or which room you were in so it is difficult for us to determine the room you were not pleased with. A couple of our "contemporary" rooms are smaller than others, and yours may have been a last minute booking and a small room... More
