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 get a chance to get to know the other guests. There is a shared bathroom, but it is very clean and organized. Rooms are very cosy, with great Wifi connection. The vegetarian/organic breakfast is amazing and gives you an opportunity to talk to the manager Byron who will make you feel that this is your home away from home.
The building is old, there is nothing luxurious about the rooms, and the walls are quite thin, but the hospitality is out of this world. Highly recommended.
