perfect way to celebrate a 10 year anniversary!Posted Jul 27, 2014
My husband and I stayed at this B &B for three nights. Our room was beautiful. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was good......no hot options, but was good enough! They always had ice cold water and coffee available, which was wonderful after spending hours touring Boston! Good location. Many resturants nearby, our favorite being The Elephant Walk. SOOO good! We would def stay here again!

Considerate and thoughtful managementPosted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: We received wonderful, personalized service.
Location: Very close to Harvard Square and the T for easy travel into Boston.
We checked into A Cambridge House Inn on a Sunday and intended to stay 4 nights. However, my husband became ill and we left the next morning. It was so early we just left our key on a table in the lobby and asked the breakfast staff to pass on the information. Although the reservation stated non-refundable, once we arrived home and my husband was feeling better I contacted Expedia about the possibility of getting some type of credit. Expedia immediately contacted the inn and spoke to Victor, who had been so kind and gracious to us, and a refund was immediately issued. When I called the inn to say thanks, Victor replied that it was the right thing to do. We are grateful that in an era when many of us complain of substandard service, this gem of an inn exists. We will definitely be back in the future and we also thank Expedia for their assistance.

Great location near Porter Square and Davis SquarePosted Apr 25, 2014
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness, comfy bed, hot water in the shower, coffee in the am
Cons: I liked it just the way it was
Location: About a 5 minute walk from both Davis Square and Porter Square, with everything this area has to offer
I loved staying here during a business trip to Cambridge. The location was perfect for me, and the guest house is adorable. I was given the Victorian Room on the first floor in the back. Very comfortable canopy bed and a working gas fireplace. The room was spotless. Great for one person, possibly two; quite small and very cozy. Left too early in the morning to enjoy the continental breakfast, but was given a cup of hot coffee as I went out the door. Great staff with personality. I would absolutely stay there again (in fact I did not want to leave)!

Lovely placePosted Oct 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
I booked a Victorian room for my parents--mom "felt like a princess" when she woke up. The annex rooms are nice (brother stayed there), but def. not as nice as the main house. For a few bucks more I'd recommend upgrading to the main house.

Cambridge inn 3 night stayPosted Oct 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall good location - busy street but rooms we had sufficiently quiet, reasonable value, ok continental breakfast, interesting rooms but dark, ok upkeep, not a b&b experience but rather a small hotel. Staff business like rather than friendly/welcoming

Good locationPosted Sep 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Staff and location was great! Hotel room and bathroom was very clean. Only complaint was the quality of bed - it was not comfortable at all.

Nice bed and breakfast close to Harvard UniversityPosted Aug 3, 2013
Cons: Cleanliness of floor and shower
Location: Harvard University/Harvard Square
The inn is located less than two miles from Harvard Square. The neighborhood was nice and the train station was under half a mile away--easy walking distance. The room was nice, but needed some attention overall. The window coverings and bed skirt/bonnet had yellowed with age and had a musty smell. The bedding itself was soft and clean. The carpet had not been vacuumed and dirt and rocks could be felt underfoot when we walked over it barefooted. The shower had mildew around the edges, but the room was clean otherwise. Our stay was pleasant and quiet. The breakfast was nice and the coffee was good.
