B&B type hotel

Posted Jan 11, 2016
Free car parking a plus. Room was on 4th floor, clean but very warm.

ハーバード大学に近い民宿風ホテル

Posted Jan 3, 2016
大学や駅に近く、治安も問題ないエリアにあります。 日本でいう民宿に近いホテルです、ボストンに行く友人がいたら勧めてもいいかなと感じました。 但し、部屋間や廊下の遮音性が良くないので気にする方には勧めません。 個人的には、今後行く機会が有ればまた利用しても良いかなと思いました。

Another great stay at the Irving House!

Posted Dec 27, 2015
My kids and I wanted to spend Christmas day in Boston and we chose to stay at the Irving House again. It was JUST as nice as when we stayed in the summer. Our bed was super comfortable, the room was clean and the sheets smelled freshly laundered. The breakfast the next morning had a delightful assortment including baked goods, eggs and organic milk for the coffee and the cereal. It's reasonably priced and always a pleasure!

Cozy and very well located

Posted Nov 30, 2015
Pros: Location, breakfast, facilities
Cons: Since the B&B is located in an old house, it's important to check the rooms frequently to ensure everything is working as expected.
Location: Lots of shopping and dining options in Harvard Square as well as easy access to the T and other public transportation.
This B&B is perfect if you are not interested in a fancy hotel room but a comfortable, cozy place with a friendly home-like atmosphere. It is located within walking distance to Harvard Square and the T. The staff are wonderful. The breakfast is delicious. I highly recommend it.

Pros: Staff, price.
Location: A short, pleasant walk to Harvard Square and the T Station.
Free off-street parking and a friendly, helpful staff were the highlights. Room was simple but clean and comfortable. Free hot breakfast. Nothing extravagant, but like the hotel itself, it more than did the job.

Charming & Comfortable

Posted Nov 17, 2015
This place has the charm and updates that give a modern touch. This is not for those who will compare it to a large hotel chain property. The breakfast is outstanding with fresh home-baked goodies, gourmet coffees, teas, fresh juices, cereals, fruits, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, and so on. I loved it! Great bed, extra pillows and blankets and bathrobe! And a short walk to Harvard Square and the T line. Go for it!

Close to Harvard Square

Posted Nov 16, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: General updating to facility
Location: Within a mile or so from Harvard Square
Irving House is an old house that's been turned into a bed and breakfast. It's not fancy but it definitely meets the needs of most unassuming travelers. I had reasonable expectations and they were definitely met. If I were traveling alone again, I'd definitely stay here again. If I was traveling with my wife or family, I'd probably stay in a more traditional hotel with a private bathroom.

ボストンでリーズナブルに泊まるなら

Posted Nov 14, 2015
早朝発の飛行機に乗るためにボストンで1泊する必要があったのですが,ダウンタウンのホテルは高過ぎるので,地下鉄で移動できるハーバード周辺でこのB&Bを見つけました.駅から15分ほど歩きますが,閑静な住宅街にあってスタッフもフレンドリーなので安心して泊まれました.共同バストイレですが,他の宿泊者に出くわすことはありませんでした.
