Great location! Right in between Harvard and MIT, and close to the red line to get to downtown Boston. The place was clean, and Hannah was very easy to contact and acted immediately in fixing some issues we had with the apartment.

This Airbnb is in a fantastic location, truly a five-minute walk from Harvard Square. It's in an old brownstone, so if you have ever wondered what it would be like to stay in one, this is your chance. Be warned, it's an old building and the walls are thin. It's also close to the street so expect some traffic noise. The apartment has one bedroom; the hide-a-bed isn't the most comfortable so if you will be using it, be aware. Hannah is responsive and communicates often and clearly. It is apparent she wants her guests to have a good experience.

The apartment was clean and exactly as advertised. It was fully stocked with necessities. The location was about halfway between Harvard and Central Time stations with a lot of amenities on Massachusetts Ave. Hannah was an outstanding host - super communicative via texts.

Hannah made checking in very easy and periodically communicated with us via text during our stay. The apartment was clean and well supplied with toiletries, towels, and bed sheets. The kitchen is equipped with a large fridge/freezer. There was an extra mattress for the couch pullout bed which made it quite comfortable. Both the bedroom and living room are equipped with air conditioning units. The LG A/C unit in the living room was brand new and a greatly appreciated luxury. The parking pass was very helpful and we were able to consistently find parking on the street behind the building within a block or two. The building itself is quite beautiful from the outside and has a modern elevator. I found the location to be absolutely perfect. It's within 10 minutes of Harvard Square (with many excellent restaurants and shops). It's close to a train station, but also within walking distance of downtown Boston via Harvard Bridge. If arriving from the airport, I recommend familiarizing yourself with the Boston public transportation map before your trip and using the bus and train, since it is only $2.75. I was quite enamoured with Cambridge and the Boston area, and I highly recommend visiting. Thanks Hannah!

Hannah is a wonderful host. Her appartement is very well located and very clean. It was the perfect spot to recreate a xmas vibe with my parents. Close to Harvard and central square T station it allowed us to be downtown Boston in 20 Minutes. Having the possibility to park the car for free was also an enormous added bonus. Overall a lovely stay with a host Genuinely concerned with her guests well being !!

I love to cook, and nothing makes me happier than having friends and family share a meal and entertaining stories around my dinner table. I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, and learning about new cultures and ideas. I've been living in Cambridge - first as a student and now as a young working professional - for the last eight years, and I've loved every moment. I'm always eager to share my love of the city with visitors.
