Another good stay at Irving House

3.4 on July 25, 2013

I am an infrequent visitor to Harvard but have stayed as Irving House perhaps six or eight times in the last ten years. I like the place. Rather a strange building but it suits my needs, walking distance to Harvard Suuare, Harvard Yard etc.


Shared Bath Gets You a Good Deal

4.0 on February 08, 2013

Exceeded expectations in almost every way. Food was very decent; condition of the rooms was good; staff was pleasant; location was great. Accepting a shared bath got my price down and it wasn't an inconvenience. In almost every way I enjoyed my stay and it's well located for all things Harvard. The only down side was their public computer, an antiquated Mac which took forever to print my boarding pass. Regardless, this place is easily recommended!


Just what I was looking for

4.4 on December 21, 2012

For Cambridge they are distinguished because this is a quiet location with parking included, a good continental breakfast, all at a reasonable price.


Can't Beat the Location

4.0 on July 20, 2012

We were visiting our daughter, who is at Harvard for the summer, and couldn't have asked for a nicer place or a better location. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, and we were able to walk everwhere. We looked at the area hotels, but they were more expensive, charge for parking, don't include breakfast, and aren't nearly as convenient. The Irving House was the perfect choice. We would definitely stay there again.
