Whitman House Cambridge , Mass.Posted Apr 19, 2015
Pros: convience of location to the metro was important.. and was clean quiet and very pleasant
Cons: hangers for clothing in the open closet and you must be willing to use a communial bathroom .. not
Location: With it being so close to the metro subway line easy to explore many parts of Boston and Cambridge from Harvard and Mit to the Freedom Trail in Bosto
Whitman House is a pleasant bed and breakfast at Central Square convient walking, five short blocks from the metro, to allow one to explore from Harvard to Boston easily. Rooms are nice..clean and confortable. Would appreciate some hangers in the closet and you must be willing to share a communial bathroom with the upstairs rooms.. Staff is polite and open to helping any way they can. If stairs are a problem recommend requesting the one room downstairs..

Use the supplied bathrobe...Posted Dec 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Staying at the Whitman House with David was quite a pleasure. Breakfast is a cold buffet of cereals, breads, etc. The bathroom, although not shared, was down the hall. One morning I did make a run from the bathroom to the room in a towel and was caught by another guest, which made him feel more uncomfortable than it did me. Towels are kept in the room and not the bathroom so I'm lucky to have been wearing that much. David is extremely hospitable and made us feel comfortable. Just like staying at a family member's home.

Quiet street yet close to transportPosted Nov 19, 2014
Pros: Quiet street yet close to transport. Convivial hosts.
Cons: Maybe carpet on the stairs.
Location: One stop to Harvard Square and three to the city's centre.
I went to Boston on my own, yet staying at Whitman House was like visiting old friends. David and Robert maintain a congenial atmosphere, welcoming and being interested in everything about their guests. Yes, it is possible to keep to oneself, and they respect that, but I enjoyed talking with them and with their other guests over breakfast and after coming back in the evenings. The house is comfortable and clean and, most important for me, is in a quiet street. Yet, a five minute walk brings you to the 'T' station, enabling travel all over Boston. Running a Bed and Breakfast is a financial venture, of course, but David and Robert seem to view it as a lifestyle choice and a learning opportunity for them as they meet guests from all walks of life, and it is this attitude which sets Whitman House in a class of it's own, above the rest. Congratulations to both of them!!

Hübsche kleine Pension in guter Lage bei BostonPosted Sep 14, 2014
Pros: Sauberkeit, gute Kommunikationen mit den Hausherren.
Cons: Nein, ich denke es war alles wirklich in Ordnung.
Location: Es liegt ca. 3 Minuten zu Fuß von der Haltestelle Central von Cambridge (Red Line) entfernt. Mit der Red Line ist man in 5 Minuten Mitten in Boston.
Wir besuchten unsern Sohn in Boston und das Whitman House liegt ideal in seiner Wohngegend in Cambridge. Das Haus selbst ist tip top und sehr sauber. Parkplatz im Hof. Die beiden Hauseigentümer David und Robert sind immer ganz lieb bemüht, einem den Aufenthalt zu erleichtern. Wir haben uns sofort zu Hause gefühlt, wenn wir auch viel unterwegs waren. Wir waren im blauen Zimmer (EG neben Frühstücksraum) und hatten ein Badezimmer auf dem Flur (war nur für uns). Da wir Frühaufsteher sind war die direkte Nachbarschaft des Frühstücksraums kein Problem (sonst könnten die Gespräche der frühstückenden anderen Gäste stören). Das Frühstück konnte man sich in der Küche selbst bereiten (alles was man sich vorstellen kann, stand bereit, Kaffee aus Kapselmaschine: Toll!). Wir fanden das ideal!

not really a hotel, a very good B and B.Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Owners couldn't be more eager to help in any way. Everything very clean. Parking brill, own space at the back or permit in the street.
Cons: Can't think of anything off hand.
Location: Nothing much to do nearby as far as we could see.
Everything good, invited to a very pleasant BBQ at the house. Nice surprise! We weren't too happy about any of the eating places within 30 mins walk. Too ethnic and fast food for our liking as a senior couple. We did find a pretty decent restaurant near Harvard Square called Grafton Street. There are probably more around that area but we didn't have time to explore.
