the property is right above the subway and next to a main street so it is noisy.

Terrific boutique alternative to the big brand hotels in the Harvard area, attentive staff, renovated to the best modern standards, yet in a beautiful old building, recommend highly. A few minutes walk to Harvard Square, to boot.

5 out of 5

Comfortable smaller property close to Harvard.

Pros: I like the smaller hotel option.
Cons: We didn't realize there was no bar or restaurant there. The city was subject to a blizzard and I didn't want to go outside.
Location: Close to Harvard, but the city was snow covered and did not explore surroundings.
Clean, comfortable, nice staff--no complaints there.
