    Really nice modern rooms, in an area with great public transit connections, Blue Bike station, and lots of restaurants nearby.

    Cute, European style hotel. The housekeeping staff was exceptional!

    The front desk staff was iffy at best. Not very cheerful, and I didn't like how they were seated instead of standing. Unprofessional.

    Location is fabulous. We stayed here on two weekends and they allowed us to leave luggage behind inbetween free of charge. Nice restaurant downstairs, though breakfast is not included in the price. Complimentary coffee available at all times. Across the road from subway and lots of buses around, as well as shops and restaurants. 25 minute walk to Harvard Uni.

    Rooms are very, very small - with not adequate space for two suitcases.

    The Staff and the location were awesome! Steps to grocery, pharmacy, gym, the T and tons of restaurants. Rooms were well updated/new. Shower head / pointed in the the wrong direction just a bit, but too high to move. The showers door didn't completely close, but we loved our stay!
