About this area

Cambridge

In the city center and near a metro station, Harvard Square Hotel is in a walkable area with great shopping. Boston Harbor and Long Wharf are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Boston Public Garden and Boston Common. Check out an event or a game at Fenway Park, and consider making time for New England Aquarium, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests love the hotel's central location.

Undergoing some construction now so temperature was tough to manage, but quieter than expected. Bed was too soft for my taste. Otherwise clean and nice staff, can’t beat the location!

Everything is good except the room has a strong smell. Don’t know if it is from the cleaning chemical or what. We left the window open for a couple hours, still has the smell?
