    good, quiet location. very good breakfasts. helpful staff.

    The top floor seems a long way up with no elevator with a suitcase. perhaps staff could help those who are in this situation with a hand!

    Very pleasant atmosphere

    I had booked for 3 nights but needed 4 as had put 14th as arrival but was actually arriving on 13th. Was coming from Australia and rrror would have been due to adding a day to departure date as is over 20 hour journey, but dateline crossing means I arrived on 13th. In the event there was a free family room which was good. But I was charged full rate although as I arrived after 9pm it was not going to get rented, and I would have thought could have been done at about the same rate as for the 3 days. I was lucky there was an empty room. You were lucky to fill it at all.

    Beautiful, ecologically minded, clean Bed and Breakfast within waling distance to the Charler River, Harvard Square and the train into downton Boston. The staff were great.

    The complimentary breakfast at Irving House was great, and the hotel serves complimentary refreshments everyday from noon until 10 pm.

    Shared bathroom is quite spacious, clean, and well-managed.

    The location and the price.

    It is not really close to subway stations. If you are carrying large/heavy bags you will need a taxi.

  • Family with children

    The beds were comfortable and the TV large. I liked the free wireless.

    The first room offered was extremely small. Also, there was a musty smell to the room we did have.

  • Single
    10.0

    I liked the personal feel, the people and the location was great. I did have the one with the ensuite bathroom which I paid extra for that facility but for me it is worth it. My sharing bathrooms is over, I like my luxuries. I loved it and would recommend it.

    It was a struggle getting my luggage up two flights of stairs as I was at the top but really that is minor. One shouldn't travel with so much stuff as I do and it was what 2 minutes of inconvenience for a nice room and I felt safe which is important as I am a solo traveller.

    The location was very good, and the room was clean.

    This is not a b+b in the traditional sense: it could generously be called a "hostel," not so generously called "boarding house." When you spend $150/night for a room, you expect to have a private bath. You will have not have one at Irving House. In fact, there is only a single bath and toilet for the entire second floor. When you spend $150/night for a room, you expect that the "breakfast" advertised as having "many options" will not mean that there are eggs in the fridge downstairs that you can make for yourself, or pots of coffee that have been out since very early in the morning, or boxes of cereal in the cabinet that you can use. If I did not read something carefully enough, that is my fault. But do not make the mistake I did: pay $10 or $20 more and stay at a place with reasonable amenities and equivalent convenience. It will not be hard to find at all.

    I liked the very helpful staff. They tried to get our room ready quickly and let us check in early. They provided us with many answers to questions and directions to places. I liked the hotel's convenient location by the Boston T. The setting was pretty and I felt like I was experiencing Cambridge well. Traffic was very easy to handle at this location , but most things were is walking distance.

    I thought the price was a bit high when compared with what was offered (room size, king size bed, elaborate hot breakfast) for a lower rate at the Kendall Hotel the following day.

    Rooms and shared bathrooms were very clean and comfortable.

    Breakfast pastries could have been better.

    Great location. Friendly staff. Small, but cozy, room. Nice selection of complimentary breakfast foods.

  • Single

    It's cosy and charming

    Some of the things cookie-cutter hotel rooms offer, like powerpoints in useful places, are missing in the charming individuality.

    LOCATION. It is only 2 blocks away from the Harvard Graduate School of Design

    Its convenience is a bit expensive.

    It´s an excellent place for whom need to stay near to Harvard. The employees are very kind and I always get informations when I need.
