The furnishings are unique, antiques and antique reproductions. No two rooms are exactly alike. The location is perfect for those visiting any major attractions in Kendall Square, MIT, businesses, etc... The restaurant has good food, and the atmosphere is charming. This is a quaint hotel, but it is still large enough to be comfortable. Rooms are a good size, and... More

We wanted 4th of July in Boston. started a Hotel search in November, and decided on the Kendall Hotel. Way RIGHT decision! Converted Firehouse, so was themed that way. Wonderful room, with a most comfortable bed. Excellent and Friendly Staff. And, the breakfast in not your ordinary motel breakfast. As they say, Breakfast fit for a Fireman, and they mean... More

Our room was spacious and very clean. I liked that it was so close to the T and the Trolley Tour stop. The beds were comfortable. Although the breakfast wasn't spectacular, it was good (and definitely better than a chain hotel). It was also nice to be able to sit outside while eating breakfast. Just be careful getting in and...

I've stayed in a wide range of hotels now and this one really knocked my socks off. Wow! It's family owned and run and the staff are so friendly you can debate electoral polarities with them and it's a laugh. We had an attic room. It was clean, exceptionally comfortable with handmade quilts and lovely old furniture, and generous right... More

This hotel was great! Upon arrival we were greeted with a gift basket for elite members with T-shirts, tote bags, cookies, pretzels, jars of mustard, and toiletries. This was a very generous welcome package which was not expected but appreciated. The hotel room was amazing with a bed and breakfast type feel. The fireman's breakfast was a great way to... More

What a lovely hotel this was with a great quirky ambience. Lovely reception and bar area and beautiful bedrooms, altho a little dark but nonetheless, we loved ours. The bed was huge and comfortable in a large room with good sized bathroom, again with quirky decor and everything was spotlessly clean. Staff overall were very good, particularly the Brazilian waiter... More

Room was charming and extremely comfortable. Breakfast is included, and the variety and quality is impressive. Hotel hosts a hospitality hour every day at 5PM with free wine. Met some really...

An amazing little hotel right in Cambridge, which is right on the T-line and very close to Harvard and MIT, with easy access to the City. This part of town is very walkable. Perfect place for a couple of nights in Boston. Very nice rooms. Top notch linens, pillows, towels, robes, Starbucks coffee in the room. Excellent breakfast (so much... More

The Kendall is a small hotel where you feel like home: nice staff, cosy rooms, good breakfast. A family environment very well located in Main Street. I have stayed there a number of times and it's always a great choice. I do recommend it for leisure or for business.

We were in town to see a Red Sox game and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Walking distance to Fenway. Staff extremely helpful, kind and courteous. Breakfast is superb! Quiet and comfy sleeping😊 The hotel is decorated so nicely with folklore charm. This once firehouse is worth a try!!!!
