      Lobby and corridors were very shabby and I was concerned when I checked in. The room was a pleasant suprise, though I had a corner room with great windows - not sure what other rooms are like. Room was very clean. It is an OK place to stay for business on a budget - no frills but economical - by Boston standards at least.

      The public spaces were rather grim.

      Wonderful staff. Extremely helpful

      Old, halls not clean, no exercise facilities

      Location right in the heart of shopping, dining and next to Harvard University.

      Rooms were a little small but comfortable.

      Room clean and quiet.

      No real hotel lobby, bar, or breakfast room.

      Location is this hotel's key feature. We did have nice views of the city. We were on the top floor with sweeping views. Free internet.

      Older, city hotel with very few amenities. Smaller rooms that could use some updating. Elevator was out of order one night and we came thru the basement and had to climb 5 flights after walking all over the city that day. Little things added up to make us unhappy for the high price that we paid. No breakfast, either.

      Friendly staff and very helpful

      Floors smell bad (room was fine) - air fresheners everywhere.

      The Hotel is very close to boston downtown.

      Spotless, clean rooms with very polite, efficient and helpful staff. Excellent location.

      Great location.

      Problems getting bill and receipt at check-out. I had to call the hotel financial department to get an email copy of the bill the next day. The financial people were fine, but front desk people said that they would send me the email.

      The hospitality was great and the room quite.

      The location was excellent for our visit. Because of our early arrival (6:00 am) I had booked the room for the previous night and it was available upon our arrival. Front desk was well staffed at all hours. Cab to airport at 5:30 am on Sunday morning was ready and waiting.Excellent service.

      Sound-proofing in the room was poor. Maybe because we stayed over a weekend and there were weddings in the area - it seemed that many of the party guests needed to talk (loudly) in the hotel corridors (i.e. outside our room) at midnight and one o'clock in the morning and I felt that ear-plugs would have been handy for a quiet nights uninterrupted sleep. Also the bath-tub in room 114 did not drain. so when taking a shower you were almost knee-deep in water.

      The best aspect of the hotel is its great location right in Harvard Square. Our room was fairly tight, but still comfortable and had everything we needed. The free WiFi was much appreciated.

      Really everything was fine with the hotel, but it is definitely a bit dated; bathrooms vintage 1960's tiles and fixtures, the whole hotel pretty basic. Considering the price, though, not a problem.

      The internet is convenient, and the bed is comfortable.

      No breakfast is a bit disappointing.

    • Family with children

      That it was in the middle of Harvard Square and Harvard University and thereby gave my son a feel of what college life was to some extent like

      No gym, restaurant

    • Family with children
      10.0

      Location, location, location. Everything was in within walking distance. Food, shopping, subway station and of course, the Harvard campus. Even though the room was tiny, it was cozy and clean, equipped with all the necessities, including an umbrella, that came handy during the rainy days we were there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
