A bedroom in a 3 bedroom apartment. Private lock on the bedroom door. This apartment shares a bathroom with one other room. The building is just two blocks from Harvard and provides easy access to the university as well as all the shopping and restaurants in Harvard Square. There is also a T stop (Boston's subway system) in Harvard Square that can take you directly into downtown Boston in under 15 minutes. This is a great central place to visit both Cambridge and Boston.

The space

This is the third bedroom of a 3 bedroom unit that is only two blocks away from Harvard University. It shares a bathroom with one other bedroom, if that bedroom is occupied. All bedrooms have private locks on them.

Guest access

You will also have access to the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The kitchen is small, but is good for quick meals like pasta or breakfast. The TV has cable and is a Roku TV, so you can watch Netflix or other app-based shows. And the wifi is very fast and reliable throughout the whole unit.

Interaction with guests

This is one bedroom in a three bedroom apartment. The other two bedrooms are also rented out, but each bedroom has a lock. I'll be available by phone or text 24/7 to address any needs or give any recommendations you need.

Other things to note

This place is thoroughly cleaned by professional cleaners between every stay. But it is an older unit, so some bathroom tiles are faded and there are some scruff marks on the walls from suitcases banging about. Please only book if you can give such a place 5 stars so long as it is clean and comfortable (which it indeed is)

It was friendly, quiet and good location place but shower doesn’t work this is the only issue. I spent 1 night even so I’m satisfied from Steve thank you :)

Response from Steve:
Glad you enjoyed it Oguzhan! You're welcome back any time. The shower does work and should be a simple turn of the knob. If you or any future guests have any issues with it, please call me immediately and I can advise.

Steve is a friendly guy, he responds quickly and has done his best to make it comfortable for you. The checkin was easy (just read the instructions well and you will be fine.) The room with private bathroom was good!

Hi Peter! Yes, you're renting a single room in a 3 bed, 2 bath apartment. If you find another guest has been particularly messy though, please let us know and we will communicate with them and send around a cleaner if necessary. We want you to feel 100% comfortable during your stay. You were a great guest and always welcome back!

Excellent stay in a great location only a couple of blocks from Harvard University. Check-in was smooth, and everything was as-described in the listing. Thank you!

Smooth and convenient check ins. Not completely Steve's fault; had to share the kitchen and bathroom with other guests, who some are college kids who made a mess with the trash and don't flush after using the toiler. No toilet paper in the bathroom. Bathroom is so small that it was inconvenient, water pressure of the shower was very weak. Elevator was broken so had to drag luggages up and down 6 floors. A practical place to stay if u are on a tight budget, but i will consider getting a hotel next time.
