Friendly, comfortable - I'd go again
The room was clean and quiet, staff helpful and friendly, and breakfast provision fine. I particularly appreciated little touches like the small library of books in the room, and free water bottles at reception. Wi-fi worked well but I was surprised to find it unsecured. Minor niggles: the sink plug in the bathroom didn't fit well, allowing water to drain slowly out; overhead lighting in the breakfast room was a bit harsh; and 12 minutes walk to the metro is a bit optimistic on a hot day when you are towing a suitcase. Overall though, no complaints.

Cozy affordable place to stay in Harvard
Really pleasant and affordable place to stay near Harvard. Convenient location for Harvard University (5 minutes walk from Harvard Square, with a choice of shops and restaurants). Breakfast was well stocked and fresh. The shared bathrooms were kept very clean and there was always a free bathroom when I needed one. Wifi worked well and was relatively fast. Room was a bit on the small side but had good storage and desk with a couple nice lamps to make it feel cozy. Only downside was the walls are quite thin (as other reviews have also mentioned) so I could hear my neighbors quite a lot, although with some ear plugs I had no trouble sleeping. For me, overall I had a very comfortable stay and would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Zacca Rates it HIGH
We have been here before and enjoy it very much. The only negative is that we got a very small room, probably the smallest, Room 104 and though it didn't bother us before, it now seems very cramped with very little space to move about. We are in our late 70s and a larger room would have suited us much better. Not on a higher floor though. And as usual the food and the basement eating areas are top-notch.

Pleasant stay/dissapointing breakfast
This was a nice like place for our short trip. Though, for being sold as a B&B, it sorely lacks in the breakfast depart. It was the basic continental breakfast you would receive from the cheapest hotels.
