Excellent location! Conveniently located at the edge of Harvard Square, within walking distance to the subway allowing easy access to all major attractions and universities in the area (Harvard, MIT, Tufts, Boston Univ, Boston College, etc).
Room has a brand new queen-size bed with brand new memory foam mattress, goose down comforter/duvet set, and 800 thread-count Egyptian cotton linens. Entire apartment is well heated and insulated. Apartment is on the first level and features hardwood floors throughout. Big empty walk in closet with plenty of wooden hangers is all yours as well. Guests are encouraged to make themselves at feel at home, and are free to use kitchen for cooking, refrigerator for groceries — in addition to the full-bath, laundry (coin operated, but inexpensive) and ultra-premium 100 mbps WIFI.
Guest will receive their own key upon check-in.
Host is a 30-year old Harvard Alumnus, who is extremely clean, neat, courteous, considerate and well-versed in matters of local scene.
Host sleeps elsewhere, but is nearby at all times and will be in the unit periodically throughout the day depending on schedule.
Neighborhood is very popular with Harvard Law School students. Plenty of coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance. Harvard Yard and Harvard Square are about a 5-7 minute walk.
Location has great access to public transit. In addition to the bus stop (on the corner of Mass Ave & Wendell St) there are two subway (MBTA) stops—Harvard & Porter—within walking distance (5-7 minutes).
great location. nice apartment. very comfy bed.
Felipe's flat is very conveniently located on an attractive street with good access to a useful bus route and subway. It was pleasant and warm and Felipe is a very easy person to get on with. It was a very enjoyable stay, thanks.
Overall a great experience and would highly recommend this place to others. Felipe was a great host and very responsive by email to coordinating my arrival. The apartment is nicely furnished, immaculately clean, and the bed was super comfortable. Despite the bitter cold outside, the space was always very comfortable. The radiator system in the bedroom could be individually controlled, which was nice to kick the temperature down a few degrees overnight. The location of the apartment is excellent directly between the Harvard and Porter Square T stations on Mass Ave. It would be an easy stroll in either direction during the warmer months, but it’s great that the #77 bus stops a half-block from the apartment and can carry you to either station in <5min while avoiding the winter cold and snowy sidewalks. I would recommend for anyone visiting the city and needing convenient access to the Red Line. I will definitely stay here again on future visits to Cambridge!
Felipe's place was excellent. Clean, conveniently located, great Wi-Fi, comfortable bed, plenty warm. He was a friendly and laid-back host. Would definitely stay there again.
Very convenient to Harvard Square and very pleasant. Recommended.
Felipe has been a fabulous host. The room and the huge bed are quiet, clean and very comfortable. Felipe was very concerned about my well-being and could assist me with every question I had about directions and other matters regarding my stay. I recommend this place to everyone who needs a quiet and peaceful place to stay in Cambridge.
Felipe's place is nice and clean, exactly as it looks in the pictures.
Felipe was a warm host, who made sure I had the instructions for my commute to the airport via subway to his place. The location is very convenient, a few minutes walk to harvard square station where you can get buses or trains to anywhere in the Boston/Cambridge area. There is also a bus stop right around the corner from the house, if you wanna skip the walk !
The neighborhood is safe and within walking distance to a few places to eat and a nice cafe ! And the house had everything you needed, right from closet space, clean bathroom, kitchen access and Felipe even left an ironing board so that I could have my clothes ready. All in all a great Airbnb experience and I would definitely come back and stay here if I happen to visit Cambridge again.
This is a really nice, clean and warm (very appreciated since it was December) apartment in 10 min walking distance to Harvard Square or Porter (bus available) with a super comfortable bed (++). Theres also a huge TV with tons of channels that can be used by guests. Kitchen has everything you need to cook or bake.
Felipe was rarely there but very kind and available in case of questions or issues.
We can only recommend staying here!
Felipe's apartment is a 5 minute walk from Harvard Law School and a 10-12 minute walk to the T-stop and hip restaurants and shops at Harvard Square.
The apartment was spotless. The bathroom, the living room table, and all the kitchen counters were squeaky clean. The bed was comfortable and the linens and bathroom towel were also fresh.
I would recommend this apartment without reservation and would stay another time.
Nice bedroom, big bathroom, and you can practice the piano if you want!
