Molly and Scott were through in giving directions. Also nice to receive a text 1/2 way through our stay, to check on us. Loved the neighborhood and proximity to trains and bike share. Apartment was homey and clean. Would recommend!
The appartment was great for exploring Cambridge and Boston as everything was just either walking distance away or could be easily reached via public transportation. The building was rather old, but it was comfortable to live there. Even though it was near to Central Station, it was a very quite neighborhood. If someone has a very bulky heavy luggage, might not be too easy to get to the apartment. But other than that, it was overall a pleasant stay. Additionally, Scott, Molly's friend, was also always responsive and very helpful.
I was in Boston last minute for a job interview in Cambridge, and they accommodated my weird check in and check out times, and we're so welcoming and helpful. The little apartment was adorable, bed was comfy, and neighborhood was perfectly quaint.
I'm planning on another trip to apartment hunt, and will be staying here again!
Great location! Was only a 15 minute walk to the MIT campus, and a short walk to catch the T red line. The apartment was more spacious than we had expected, and having the AC and excellent wifi helped make our week very enjoyable and productive. The building is old - walls are thin, water pressure low. Neighbors that I came across were very friendly.
All in all - excellent location for our needs and a great value!
We have had a great time, the apartment is very well located and there are everything around, transportation, shops....
Apartment clean and calm with all you need.
Molly is very helpful if you need information.
I booked Molly's place for my mom visit -- and am so happy I did! Molly's place is really clean, quiet and incredibly convenient! My mom couldn't stop raving about how comfortable the bed is and how at home she felt staying there. Such a positive experience - thanks Molly!
We had a great time at Scott and Molly's. The apartment, although old is comfortable and clean and the location in Cambridge is very convenient; walking distance from down town Boston. There are excellent supermarkets nearby as well as restaurants so one can either cook or go out for a meal.
Scott is a nice guy and always available when needed. Overall, worth staying there.
