Lovely exterior, but dusty and uncomfortable...

Posted May 13, 2015
Decided to stay here on a personal trip to the area, but was quickly disappointed once I lugged my suitcase up the 3 stories of the building on a rather warm Boston day. Similar to other reviews, the website invited me to belief that I would be staying at a clean, charming, B&B, with privacy and "antiques," but rather I experienced dusty, musty, creaky, invasive, and somewhat haunting of an experience. I had planned to stay three nights, but left after the first night because I couldn't sleep (due to the lack of AIR CONDITIONING and lack of a fan), uncomfortable bed, and the notion that a creepy crawly might crawl over my face while sleeping or showering (yes, there is a plant in the shower.) I've stayed at several B&Bs in the past and had lovely experiences when the hosts provide a clean, comfortable room and bathroom situation, along with friendly (not invasive and pushy) service, but unfortunately, my experience here was none of that. Once the uncomfortable night was over, I gave a chance to the breakfast served by the Innkeeper, however alongside my crepe, fruit, and bananas (no protein or bread), I received a political and religious lecture to start off my morning as well. If you're looking for a story to tell, then I'd recommend staying here, but if you're looking for a comfortable, private, quiet place to rest your head in Cambridge, I'd stay elsewhere.

Ignore B&B PHOTO

Posted Apr 2, 2015
Building has no resemblance to Expedia photo but it is well situated for visitors to Harvard. CAUTION no parking near by. I would stay there again.

The B&B is close to everything I wanted.

Pros: Location, comfort
Great location, very comfortable, nice plants, delicious breakfast, plus a warm homey feeling. Byron is interesting and we had some great conversations. Would definitely recommend, and would stay there again.

Misleading advertising

We booked for 6 nights but left after 5. B&B is old and shoddy. If you choose this place get some rose colored glasses like the ones used by other reviewers.

Byron is a considerate and hard-working host. Breakfast is excellent. Room is over-priced. Location is good.

Very good. Ideal location - just 5 mins walk from Harvard & 10 mins to the T. From there, was 15 mins into Park St (Boston Common). Byron the host was very friendly. Breakfast was usually freshly cooked pancakes; additional cereal would be nice. Only other thing is that the B&B is up 2 flights of stairs - not a problem for me but could be for some.

Loved my stay in "A Bed & Breakfast in Cambridge"! I felt warmly welcomed and carried for. Lord Byron was very helpful and always a lot of fun! :-)

ハーバードから徒歩10分

Posted Sep 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
B&BはBreakfast & Bedなのでホテルと違いバス・トイレ共用で朝食も管理人のおじさんが作ってくれるという形です。日本では見たこと無い業態なので、はじめはびっくり。しかし立地はRed LineのHarvard squareから徒歩10分と非常に便利がよかったですし、シャワールームなどもきれいでした。何日か泊まるには申し分無いと思います。
