Great location and cgarm

Posted Dec 7, 2015
The Kindle is in a great location, conveniently located next to the T station. The hotel was charming and my room was spacious. But the hotel Lex certain amenities, such as his own fitness facility. that makes it somewhat less convenient than other hotels that are located quite close by. If you're looking for charm, the Kendall is the ticket.

Location: Cambridge, next to MIT. Uhm ... be geeky? :)
The room was very comfortable and inviting. Looks like each of the rooms are a bit different in design and style, but the rooms were clean and tastefully done. The bed was very comfortable (what's the label??), and the wireless internet was fast and worked. The breakfast was also good. I didn't get a chance to try the restaurant, but will the next time. My only small complaint was that, while there were water bottles provided the first night, the next night only one was provide, and the night after that, none. Don't know if this is typical, but...

Very quaint and comfortable haven

Posted Dec 7, 2015
Cozy, reasonably intimate facility in the midst of a very commercial area. Staff is great and room has nice amenities. Only issue was the room thermostats need to be updated to allow for more precise temperature controls.

Charming hotel surrounded by MIT

Posted Dec 2, 2015
Pros: Charming folk art touches everywhere and the excellent staff made this a warm beacon amidst the surrounding institutional buildings of MIT.
Cons: Can't think of a thing.
Location: The hotel is close to all that downtown Boston has to offer, including transportation.
A lovely three-night stay in Cambridge while visiting family. The friendly staff and the excellent, included breakfast made it especially memorable.

Vintage flair in heart of city

Posted Nov 30, 2015
Pros: The firehouse feel, great staff, and splendid location.
Cons: Not an improvement suggestion, but potential guests should be aware that the Firehouse Rooms are smaller and quirky when compared to the new addition.
Location: MIT, short trip by T to Harvard Square and Central Square. Black Sheep restaurant in-house is excellent.
We spent 4 nights at The Kendall as part of a Thanksgiving visit to see kids and grandkids. The location on the T is excellent. It was our third visit.

クラシック・アットホームな雰囲気

Posted Nov 11, 2015
もともと消防署だったところを改修してホテルになったそうです。 高級な雰囲気とは違いますが、クラシック・アットホームな雰囲気で、清掃もきちんと行き届いています。 朝食もビュッフェ形式で充実しています。 また、ロビーにはフルーツを入れた水が置いてあったりと、大規模なホテルではないが故のちょっとした気配りやサービスが随所にちりばめられていました。 部屋も大きめでキングサイズベッド+ソファー+仕事机と十分な広さでした。 WiFiも無料です。 非常に満足したので、またボストンに来た際には利用したいと思います。
