The room was more than adequate for just myself. Had everything I needed to make my stay comfortable. You share the one bathroom with another room but I never had any conflicts. The location was fantastic as there are plenty of places around it and the T stop was only a 5 minute walk. Karin was also a warm and... More

I recently spent four nights at this property, in the single room unit (not one of the apartments). Hotels in Cambridge can be expensive, but this guest house was a reasonably priced alternative in a convenient location. The room was located at the top of a flight of fire escape-style stairs, which may be a challenge with a lot of... More

My sister and I stayed in the second floor apartment while visiting my daughter in Boston. It appeared to be very clean if you didn't examine the corners too closely. I walk around in bare feet most of the time, so I appreciate when the floors are clean. The bedroom is large. I can't speak about the bed because I... More

We are appalled a the floor not being clean and will check on our maids to assure they clean thoroughly. We advertise the apartment for light cooking. Futon sleepers are meant to be firm. this is an extra thick mattress. We are sorry it is not as comfortable for this guest as others. The apartment is quite suitable for families... More

Karin greeted us and gave us the keys, She was very helpful and informative. The location of the property is perfect. It is in a quiet neighborhood but very close to coffee shops, bars, shopping, restaurants and the T. We chose an apartment because we like to prepare some of our own meals while traveling. In this apartment, we felt... More

Liked the location and the quiet neighborhood. Apartment was quite nice and suited out needs in fine fashion. It was clean and well kept. The shower head does need a thorough cleaning or replacement. I even made the short trip to Harvard, which I've wanted to do for quite some time. Would surely stay here again, but perhaps look for... More

We found this B&B last minute, but they were accommodating. Room was at top of fire escape stairs (definitely not for everyone and not handicap accessible that I could see). It was in a very quiet neighborhood, pleasant. No unnecessary amenities - the basics, but it's all we needed. We were out and about most of the time, so we... More

This was my second stay at the Gray House, which is very convenient to Lesley University and the Porter Square T stop. The apartment is clean and comfortable, with lovely tree-top views. Karin was welcoming and responded promptly to the few questions we had. Bed and Breakfast Associates has been so helpful during the reservation process each time - it... More

The Frost house was perfect for what we needed-a clean comfortable place to sleep. Karin even got a coffee maker for us! It was a short walk to the subway which eliminated the need for a car. On a neighborhood street which was quieter than ours at home! And at approximately 1/3 of the cost of a hotel in Boston!... More

Sorry that I did not review it earlier. My husband and I had the most wonderful experience here. The room is cozy, artistic and beautiful like our host, Karin.
