Good location, Great Condition
Convenient to Porter Square and Davis Square. Close to a T Station, for quick access to Cambridge. Second stay here. Very clean, excellent condition. Rooms are very small, which keeps the price down. If you don't mind a small room, you can't get better than this for price, location, and quality.

Porter Square Hotel, Cambridge MA
Very convenient location - plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Staff was genuinely friendly and courteous. I'd recommend this for single travelers as well as couples or friends traveling. The room size was a bit smaller than US standards but It was well appointed and comfortable and should not be seen as a negative comment. I'd stay again.

Great location - adorable hotel
only issue was no shampoo in the shower - didn't realize until I was already in. But the room was very nice (small, but it is a city hotel). It didn't feel as small as it was. Great location...lots of food options in walking distance and across from a T stop.
