The Harvard Square Hotel contemporary in decor is centrally located in the heart of Harvard Square. Just steps away from all that Harvard Square has to offer including the Harvard University Campus, Harvard T-Station, Charles River and the many eclectic stores and restaurants found in the Square. We are also only a few miles to downtown Boston. Our on the go Cafe is a big hit with our guests as the head out to start their day !! Stay tuned for updates as we plan out our hotel renovations scheduled for late 2018 !!

Our room was good size, comfortable and clean. Hotel staff was efficient and friendly. Many good restaurants to choose from that are walking distance. Close and convenient location to Harvard University and Mt. Auburn Hospital. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here the past three years. Always a pleasure-they never disappoint. Owner is a pleasure to deal with. Hotel clean, well appointed, walking distance to everything. Short train ride into Boston. There were a few things missed whe cleaning, a French fry on the floor and a shower cap over the smoke detector? The only real problem we had was how got the rooms were and no way to cool them down in winter, even after turning off thermostat. Our room was 80 and my daughters was 87 when she set it to 72.

Dear Valued Guest: Thank you very much for your review and also great constructive feedback. I will follow up on the shower curtain and housekeeping concerns. Also regarding the Air Conditioning system. We have the heat on in our building and the AC is actually turned off the winter months. We are currently replacing all of the heat and AC in room units this month in the hotel. The winter when you get to warm the best way to cool off the room is to shut off the heat and your room will cool down quickly. Thank yop for your feedback. We look forward to serving you again in the future for Harvard Debate Weekend. Sincerely , Richard Carbone Business Owner

I would highly recommend the Harvard Square Hotel. The owner and his team were very warm and provided me with personalized service. The rooms are newly updated and very clean. The location is excellent for everything in and around Harvard Square. It is a 5 minute walk to the Harvard Square T stop.

The hotel is in a wonderful spot. It's incredibly easy to get to Harvard and anywhere else in Cambridge. The updates the hotel has done in the past year have been a nice upgrade but they still need some work. There were only two pillows in the king bed and the floors were all laminate, not even a rug. There were scuff marks all over the walls. Things could have used a little attention to detail.
