Comfortable, chic hotel a stone’s throw from Harvard Yard. Small but unique. My room was not large but it was comfortable and had everything I needed. I really liked the coffee station in the lobby with the artisanal biscuits, and the fireplace was a nice touch.

Stayed for a night out for a concert. Great location for walking to many restaurants and venues. Rooms were nicely kept with great amenities. Complimentary drinks and coffee, light snacks. Staff are attentive and helpful at every turn.

I hesitated to book into this hotel because of complaints on Tripadvisor. One was noise. There can be a little bit of noise from outside, but only from traffic. There was none from the hall or other rooms. Another was weak wifi, but I had no trouble with it. Check in was easy. The staff were very helpful. I was upgraded to a king-sized bed and loved my room. The shower stall was kept warmer than the bathroom - great! The price was excellent $121. My one reservation was the tv, which had basic cable - no CNN as far as I could tell, and some stations didn’t fill the whole screen.

Nicely decorated hotel in an excellent location with a friendly front desk, although I would suggest avoiding if you suffer from allergies or have sensitivity to chemical and perfume smells. A minute or two after entering my room, my throat began to close up and my nose started running. I had a few asthma attacks over the course of the night. I am sensitive to chemical/perfume smells and this happens to me every once in a while when staying at a new hotel, although this experience was particularly bad. There was a strong perfume/chemical odor in the room and on the sheets and towels as well. It made for a very unpleasant and mostly sleepless evening. I left the hotel first thing in the morning at 6AM and my throat opened up a minute or two after stepping outside. Again, nice hotel, but I strongly suggest avoiding if you are sensitive to chemical/perfume smells and other allergens.

Very convenient to Harvard and Harvard Square. The rooms are small and have little in the way of electrical outlets let alone usb plugs. I was there on business and was disappointed by the lack of plugs or a comfortable place to work on my computer. Shower and bathroom are adequate. Bedside lamps weren’t working.
