Nice hotel, great location, no food service.

Posted Sep 29, 2014
That the hotel has no food service made for some challenges. While there are plenty of options in the neighborhood once you leave the hotel, one doesn't always want to have to do that especially after a long work day. Apparently, they will deliver some cheeses to the room if you know to order them. The welcome page said these would be available in the lobby but, they weren't and until I asked I didn't know about this option. It seems they don't publicize that. There is coffee/tea/water/juice service for the taking at the concierge desk and complimentary water in the room which was nice.

The rooms are very small, noisy, and smells. We liked the location but that's it.

Amazing location, amazing staff!

Posted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: Complimentary water, teas, coffees and sodas. Amazing friendly attentive staff. Gorgeous clean decor. Location, location, location.
Cons: The shower is so gorgeous but the shower head and water pressure left much to be desired.
Location: This location is beyond amazing we walked everywhere, public transportation is also very close.
We arrived before check in and they quickly took our bags to hold. They promptly called a few hours later letting us know the room was ready. Once we checked in they let us know there was a complimentary beverage bar. They had hot coffees, teas, juices and cold sodas that you could grab whenever you wanted. I also loved they had free ice water bottles and the water in your room was free as well. There were amazing little places to hang out and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of the hotel in the lobby and patios upstairs and down. The room was gorgeous! Very tastefully decorated and beyond clean. They also had lovely bathroom goodies and lots of fluffy clean towels. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was attentive and sweet the location was perfection and the hotel itself was charming from top to bottom. Will defintly be staying again!

great boutique hotel close to harvard square

Posted Aug 27, 2014
great people, great facility / room quality, if you don't like smallish (i.e. euro style) bedrooms then this isn't the place for you, only minor issue was a very faint rumbling once in a while when the subway roles by under Mass Ave, no mini bar but love that there is awesome coffee, juice, water for free 24 hours in the lobby

Very close to Harvard and many, many good restaurants. Lovely room (if small). Staff couldn't be nicer. Gave me many good recommendations of places to eat.

Excellent stay by Harvard Square at a great price!

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Small and excellent without the big chain feel.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Lots of places to eat and Harvard Square and T stop also very nearby.
We needed a 1 night stay close by my daughters apartment and this satisfied our needs and price helped a lot also being by the square and really cute. It is a small boutique hotel but our king room was given as a upgrade thru my expedia rewards which surprised me that I had that level. Gorgeous room, bathroom spacious. The front desk gave us a call after we got to our room to check if everything was satisfactory , which it was. Drinks were offered to us as we checked in such as water, juice , coffee, available anytime he said. I had asked for them to arrange a taxi to take us to the airport the next morning at 6am and it showed up at 5:45am. Front desk also helped me print out my boarding passes also! Such a great staff! I will definitely stay here again when I visit my daughter.

Near Harvard, excellent staff, quaint but elegant

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Easy walk to Harvard and surrounding restaurants. The staff was attentive and professional.
Cons: Better info about parking ahead. I also prefer a coffee machine in my room instead of going to the lobby.
Location: Harvard
The hotel was very close to Harvard with many restaurants in walking distance. The hotel staff was very professional and courteous. Coffee was available in the lobby. Valet parking but GPS kept routing me to the wrong place to find the valet so that was confusing. The room was small but comfortable. The hotel is a quaint old building that has been remodeled into an elegant, small hotel.
