I never stayed there. False advertisement. They never mentioned that I would have to share a bathroom with strangers. If I knew I would’ve never book the hotel. I’ve been trying to speak with someone regarding this issue because I need ny money back.

Very close to campus, nice breakfast and quiet environment.

College atmosphere. Picturesque environment near the campus.

The staff was exceptionally friendly, and there was delicious loose-leaf tea available at breakfast.

It is very close to Harvard and have a free peaking place

Historic building with pleasant rooms. Not inexpensive. Great breakfast choices and cool basement location.

Nice breakfast to help start the day. Location is convenient to the riches of Harvard’s neighborhood.

Short walk to Harvard Yard. Clean, cozy, and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Will be returning..

Tiny rooms. No elevator and assistance with luggage

Room was small but comfortable, ten minutes to downtown, great residential neighborhood, good breakfast included. Only negative is off-street parking, alongside & behind the B&B, extremely tight for anything but a small car... returned to lodging late at night, only one space left in rear of building; after trying to fit into it for 10 minutes, had to give up & park elsewhere.

Lovely, warm and inviting. We had a wonderful stay and have already booked rooms for move in and parents weekend!

Sorry we never had the opportunity to serve you. We have all kinds of room types, many with private baths. Sharing a bathroom while traveling is not for everyone but it can be an economical way to stay close to Harvard Sq at a lower rate.
