    • 8.0.Very good

      Overall stay was satisfactory and would stay here again but couple of things that can be improved: 1. There were no bottles of water in room for customers. 2. The pillow was lumpy and not very comfortable to sleep.

      What a wonderful find in Cambridge! I needed a last minute place to stay after an emergency left me without accommodations and the three night stay here with my tiny dog was THE silver lining of an otherwise stressful trip. Immediately breathed a sigh of relief as soon as I stepped in. Very professional and modern space, yet cozy and homey at the same time. Brand new, super clean. Really lovely small touches in the rooms and great fixtures. The lobby is HUGE. Great for meeting folks, and you’re in a great location. Easy parking. 5 minutes to tufts or Harvard square. Walking distance from two big shopping plazas with a Whole Foods and a Trader Joes and small restaurants—and right next door to famous Ma Magoos! Even so centrally located the room was QUIET. Got amazing nights sleep. A perfect and amazing find in an area that can be tough for the affordable hotel market. High recommend

      Quick Trip

      We were there for two days. In someways the hotel looks like a converted youth hostel. The rooms are very spacious yet feel like something is missing. The bed was comfortable the bathroom was nice, except very small. The TV is on a satellite and it just doesn’t work very well at all and we were unable to get close captioning. The air conditioning system Was basic, but we could not get the room to a temperature that was comfortable for us. There are no amenities at the hotel at all at this point. There is a Starbucks in the lobby closes at 4:30 in the afternoon.

      Give me the bed type I reserved

      When I book a room type well in advance, I expect the hotel to hold that type of room for me. When I want a king bed that is what I want.

      Lots of problems with the room but helpful staff

      Fridge door was broken and hanging off on arrival. Phone did not work to reception. The window in the room could not be opened. I was woken by a carbon dioxide alarm on my last day in the morning.

      Stay Away

      The hotel is near Cambridge Fresh Pond, a beautiful place. The bed was comfy. That's it. The room was ugly. The tiny window showed an ugly parking lot. The bathroom was disgusting. So was the curtain behind which you had to hide everything. The television never worked properly. The fridge was crummy. Both the noise of the crummy fridge and the air conditioner and heater were loud. The room had no desk to work on or chairs to work on. This was a 4 star Hilton room! Very funny. Stay away!!

      Not my best stay

      Overall was not impressed. Due to COVID, there is no bar, room service nor are any of the very nicely pictured communal spaces open. Also, you need to ASK specifically for your room the be seviced otherwise no one even comes in to empty the trash or change towels. No one mentioned this to me when I checked in but it was printed on a tiny piece of paper you can't read without glasses! Also the toilet in my room ran the entire time despite several requests for maintenance to fix it. They said they tried, but there is something faulty with the way the toilets were installed. Won't stay again.

      Clean and Quiet

      The room was clean and very quiet. The room-darkening shades and loveseat were very useful. The bathroom was nice and had good water pressure. The only minor issue was that the person at the front desk didn't fully explain the parking situation. It's $16 per day, and there were plenty of spaces when I was there. There are a few fast food places and stores within walking distance, and the subway stop is close by. Overall, a really nice place and I will stay here again.
