Not a good experience

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: Nothing much.
Cons: Train the staff to be more helpful. Train the cooks to cook better food! Use better utensils and plates.
Location: There'a a market place about a block away if you need anything.
I was so disappointed with this B&B. Where do I begin? First of all, my room was on the 3rd floor and the staff didn't offer to help me with my luggage. The dining area looked old, dirty, and depressing. I couldn't eat anything! The walls are so thin! I could hear the person next door open the zipper of his luggage! It's creepy!

Great location, near Harvard and MIT.

Posted Apr 25, 2015
Pros: location
Cons: Breakfast should be taken up a level for a B&B and the price. Thicker rugs to cushion the noise from floor above.
Location: can walk to Harvard Square, walk to the subway to ride into Boston, walked to MIT and Harvard.
Charming B&B, friendly staff, and convenient location to Harvard and MIT.

Way too expensive for a 2 stars accommodation.

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: people
Cons: pricing, noise, pipes going through the rooms, no elevator
The price I was charged is far way too expensive. I payed the same amount I would have payed in a 4 to 5 stars hotel located in a better area, with far better services, better room, better services and better facilities. The people are very nice. The Bad Breakfast has no elevator, bathroom is ultra noisy, room has pipes going through roof and walls. The internet is slow and it is located in a secondary road. Even if the week-end was a busy one, I think the price I payed is far off a fair value.

Bed and breakfast near Harvard Square.

Posted Apr 13, 2015
This was a very pleasant little place, conveniently located. The staff was professional and pleasant. The breakfast was good. My room, however, was tiny - barely wider than the bed. Not that it mattered that much, but I thought the room price was high for what you got.

I wanted to check out the minute I checked in

Posted Apr 3, 2015
The room was crammed with no room to lay down luggage! We found someone's underwear hanging on bathroom door. Unable to adjust temperature. We had to sleep with window opened and bore with street noise. We could hear every little noise the next door tenants made.

Irving is Deserving of a Stay

By and large everything was fine. Small room, not the "Hilton" but all amenities were there; desk w lamp, cable TV, two lights above the bed, bookshelf & books, reading room with guest computer access, full breakfast, off street parking. No skimping on anything.
