    Rooms were small, check in was lengthy, no many amenities, no coffee in the room, water flow was very low. Pillows and bed were less than comfortable. I will not be staying here again. I did like the proximity to the square.

    Hotel was easy to get to and in a prime location! Would definitely stay here again. Rooms were very clean, decor was eclectic and the staff was very friendly. Location is just steps away from Harvard.

    The hotel was very accommodating. Although the rooms are somewhat small, they are very clean and quiet. You can't beat the location. The lobby has free coffee and bottled water. They also provided umbrellas on rainy days.

    Had a ton of luggage and had no help with bringing though the front door of hotel or bags up to our room. Lobby bland. Hallways dark and shabby. Room mediocre with shabby carpet. Shower head had little water pressure.

    Hi, not sure what your question is, but, no we didn't have the opportunity to research it in advance. The stay in Boston was unexpected.

    I have not ever had odor issues. Last time I visited, elevator was broken, but no construction. Agree with other reply: just call and ask!
