In a great location just off the Harvard campus, this sprawling 1893 building—four stories, with no elevator—sits on a quiet residential street. In true down-to-earth Cambridge fashion, it’s convenient and welcoming but not luxurious or stylish: Think one crucial step up from a dorm, with smallish, comfortably appointed rooms. The price is right, the breakfast is tasty, the staff is friendly, and the parking is free. Note that single rooms are cheaper than doubles but share hallway bathrooms and don’t have TVs.
