          I came with my high school age daughter to look at Harvard as a possible college for her. Having lived in Cambridge years ago as a graduate student I wanted her to get the feel of Harvard Square and I wanted to stay in a smaller facility that would enhance that experience. I was thrilled to have found Irving House on the internet - its ambiance and its location to Harvard Square was perfect for us. I also appreciated the free parking. Once we were there we didn't have to use the car once.

          The location is really good. The idea of being able to park the car and visit Cambridge and Boston by walk & subway was nice.

          A bit expensive, considering the size of rooms. It's really only to shower and sleep!

          proximity to Harvard Square, breakfast, cleanliness

          Excellent location, nice rooms, good breakfast, lovely porch, nice neighborhood feel but literally minutes from Harvard T, perfect temp, very quiet place & fast, free wireless. Common fridge was nice touch. From the quilt to the books, it really felt like I was staying in a guest room.

          not clear walking directions - I figured it out AFTER I lugged my bags a half mile out of the way.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Location was awesome-only 5-10 minute walk to Harvard Yard. Also, most of the staff were awesome: very helpful and friendly, and there was always someone at the desk who could help out, but 2 bad apples brought the rating down. The breakfast was quite good, with a lot of variety. And having iced coffee/iced tea available, and even more important, having just plain ice available all the time was such a blessing from the previous B&B I'd stayed at!

          The worst is parking: not having grown up in Boston, I'm not used to parking in very tight spaces with very little room to maneuver, and that's what the 14 available spots are like in their "parking lot" along the side and back of the B&B. It also would've been nice if there was an elevator. If you want to come here, pack light!!! And the rooms are very small although the bathroom in our room was disproportionately large.

          European feel, environmentally friendly, great breakfast, free books, great snacks. Very nice rooms, living room, outside areas, proximity to Harvard.

          Pricey, though very reasonable for area

          Irving House is such a special spot, definitely one of the best places I've ever stayed at. The location is ideal and the amenities are brilliant. The house has a wonderful, cosy atmosphere and grear attention to detail has been paid to make it a home away from home.

          The house is clean and cosy, very good location, near to Harvard. Free postcards delivery.

          A bit expensive for backpackers.

          Turner House has an excellent location for Harvard University, and a quiet area. Internet access is provided, although it is a bit slow. Staff are friendly and efficient, and room was clean.

          Facilities at Turner House were quite basic (no coffee provided), and the room decor was a bit aged. However, it was perfectly adequate in other respects.

          location, cleanliness, comfort

          price for the small room, no elevator - room on 4th floor

          Good location to visit sister at Harvard University & easy to travel by subway

          The room is to small.

          Pies of breakfast were excellent.

          Wall was thin and heard snoring of the next door.

          The b&b was fine, and I was happy with my stay, but I thought it was expensive for what is was. The rate I paid was $220 plus tax.

          6.4

          Excellent breakfast

          The price for a room with no en suite was very steep
