This apartment was very centrally located for Harvard, MIT and Cambridge in general. A very comfortable flat with everything you need in a safe building. Very good WIFI. A great space, with plenty of room to store suitcases and clothes. The hostess was very well organised with check-in and instructions for the apartment. She also gave us great tips on where to go for shopping and food in the neighborhood.

The location is perfect. We were able to walk to restaurants and even to our concert at the Berklee Performance Center and to Fenway Park. We were easily able to do everything we wanted during the day, return to our nest and have tea and a nap and be refreshed for our evening activities.

I recommend this apartment to anyone who needs a light-filled environment, within walking distance of Central and Harvard Squares. The features I most enjoyed include the massive storage space, the comfortable bed and the bath tub. Doriana obligingly and promptly responded to my concerns.

Doriana is a wonderful host. The location of the apartment could not be better for somebody who needs to be close to Harvard University. I am an academic and stayed in the apartment for approx 6 weeks. The thing that I felt was missing in the apartment is a working desk with space for a laptop and books. The other issue which surprised me was that the apartment was cleaned only twice and washing of linen and towels had to be taken care of by me, but these are probably the arrangements with airbnb which I was not aware of. I would definitely recomment the apartment. It is convenient, clean, contains all that one needs for a comfortable stay. Doriana is attentinve, available pleasant and prompt in replying when needed.

Response from Doriana:
Shosh, thanks for your review. I would like to clarify for future guests that typically there is no cleaning provided during a guest's stay. I had offered a promotion in December for the 2 cleanings but this is not typical. There is always thorough cleaning before a guest arrival and after departure. Laundry service is never provided. Thanks again for your visit.
