Great place, great people - highly recommendedPosted Nov 17, 2013
I had a great stay at the Whitman House. It's ideally located in Cambridge, very close to a Subway stop, restaurants, cafes and food stores. It's a nice 20-minute walk to Harvard Square or one Subway stop if you don't feel like walking. The room, bathroom and kitchen were sparkling clean and generally the house is very comfortable. Breakfast was good with plenty of different things to eat. David and Robert are great hosts, really friendly and helpful. I felt at home instantly and will certainly come back if I'm coming to Cambridge again.

Fab Guest HousePosted Nov 2, 2013
Pros: Everything. Would certainly stay here again if ever we chose to visit Boston in the future.
Cons: Personally I liked it just the way that it is.
Location: Situated close to the tube station. We found it very easy to get around on public transport - no need to hire a car.
Fabulous guest house. Both Robert and David very friendly. This was nothing like I have stayed at before. It was like staying in someones home, you were made to feel so welcome. Very modern feel to the home, rooms very clean and comfortable.

Beautiful house in centre of CambridgePosted Oct 2, 2013
Felt we were in the heart of a local community rather than a tourist area but very central for t line and buses. Friendly owners but check if an en suite is important as not all rooms are en suite.

Pleasant StayPosted Aug 24, 2013
I had a great experience at Whitman House. Robert and David are friendly and personable, and as a late riser, I appreciated that they left the breakfast food out until noon. Whitman House is conveniently located, near a subway (only four stops from downtown Boston) and a short walk to many restaurants, shops, and bars. The room where I stayed (the gold room) was clean and spacious. The only complaint I might have would be the acoustics--as a late riser, I was awakened by other people in the hallway--but then again, that is probably true of the majority of hotels and bed and breakfasts.

Perfect for budget-minded travelersPosted Apr 30, 2013
I have nothing but positive things to say about my stay with Robert and David. They are very friendly and accommodating, and the location is very convenient to the Red Line. For a graduate student like me who was on a budget, this was the perfect choice.

Great place to acquainted with Cambridge areaPosted Feb 13, 2013
Pros: conversation with the owners, staff and other guests
Location: convenient from Central Square T station
Very accommodating and friendly service. We are moving to the Boston/ Cambridge area and this B&B was a good place to get acquainted with the area including information and advice from the owners, staff and other guests. The common area really makes it like a "home away from home."

Would not stay againPosted Oct 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
It's not an en-suite bathroom where we stayed, known either as Nathan's room or the Blue Room. I mentioned that it is advertised as such here, but they seemed unconcerned. The room is down the hall and "dedicated" though we found an adult diaper in our trash in the "dedicated" bathroom. I did not find the room comfortable. There was no furniture to speak of to lounge on. We lounged on the bed. We were not given "breakfast vouchers and had to ask for them. They are a $5 discount at the Cafe Luna which we found overpriced. There was not even water glasses in the room or bathroom and only tiny little 8 oz water bottles. Sorry, Robert and David were nice enough, but we would not stay again. The en-suite bath should at least be changed in the posting.

Home sweet homePosted Apr 11, 2011 on Hotels.com
Ease and grace. The hosts were absolutely wonderful: friendly, thoughtful, and helpful. There was also privacy. Very quiet neighborhood. The house itself was artful and aesthetically very pleasing, including the details of subtle lighting. The bed was fabulous. A -Plus!

Quirky Jem in the Heart of CambridgePosted Aug 11, 2010
After insisting on 5 stars for quite sometime, I'm ruined and will never be able to stay anywhere else in Boston! What a place - like a hostel, but for higher end adventurers. Robert and David are meticulous hosts - offering rides, directions and alot of laughs to guests. After remodeling their beautiful Cambridge home, they opened it as a Bed & Breakfast. The rooms are modern, bright and very well appointed - flat screen TV's and a movie collection to rival all. The common kitchen allows for nice interaction between the hosts and the few other guests (there are only 3 rooms here) and if you're up early enough, a friendly spread of fruits, yogurt, pastries, etc. await you. I stocked the fridge with Champagne and had a lovely morning with fellow guests - one of whom cooked breakfast for us all. Centrally located in Central Square, Cambridge, but off the main roads in a residential neighborhood, if you want to feel like a local who is living well, then this is your spot.
