Charming airy apartment in the heart of Cambridge. A quiet urban retreat in between Central square and Harvard, and a short walk from the Charles river. Come stay in a historic local landmark, initially built as a luxury apartment hotel in 1900.

Great for visiting academics, those looking for a break in the city, a place to stay while in town for sports events, or for those in the area hoping to experience New England charm.

As it says a wonderfully light apartment in a great location. You’ll need an eye mask if the light wakes you in the am as the main bedroom has no curtains, just blinds which don’t cut out the light. It’s lovely and quiet too. I’d recommend it.
