We stayed at the Harding House for our first visit to the Boston area and were very pleased with our stay. For us, the location was a big selling point - we parked our car when we arrived and never touched it again until we left 2 days later. We walked to Fenway, walked to all major tourist attractions, and were always close enough to return home for some rest and be willing to head back out for dinner or more adventure. The staff was helpful in printing walking maps when we needed them or answering other questions that we had. The room did not feel small at all - we were in a deluxe queen and felt plenty happy with its size. Breakfast was a very nice layout and with good hours - even an option to get it to go on your last day if you leave early in the morning, which was yet another service we took advantage of. Overall we were very happy at the Harding House and would absolutely return there on our next visit.

Room was average, nothing special, clean and small. Front desk was friendly and accommodating. Sitting room and dining room were just....rooms. Buffet breakfast was average fare. There were no afternoon food offerings except on Thursdays. Location is very good, walkable to most points of interest.

Our stay was outstanding. The room was perfect, breakfast was great with lots of choices. This was our first trip to Boston and the staff offered great dining suggestions, maps of the area, and directions. Will certainly stay at the Harding House our next trip.

Harding house was very nice, and I will definitely consider staying there again next time I'm in town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is nice, the neighborhood quiet, and it's a 10-20 minute walk to almost anywhere in Cambridge (MIT, Harvard, Central Sq). The room was small-ish, as you'd expect from a house this era, but it served my needs just fine. Everything was clean and comfortable.

My 1st time staying at a bed and breakfast I enjoyed it much more than a hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly. And the house was very clean.

Stayed for a few nights in April '11. Excellent experience, location is not too far from Harvard Square and close to MIT. Great service, tasty breakfast, and probably roomier than a chain hotel. Definitely recommended.
