    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.More

    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!
