Barely acceptable

2.0 on September 23, 2012

I stayed at Lotus Place in Sept 2012. On the positive side, I was grateful to get a last minute reservation and the person who took my call was friendly and helpful. It was for a weekday night and I guess I was the only one there. There is no sign on the house - a legal B&B? The bedroom was basic but fine. Clean, reasonably roomy for 1-2 people and just what I needed for a 1 night stayover. A little noisy. A positive - I had my own entrance at the side of the house. On the other hand, breakfast was dismal and do it yourself. Had to sit at the kitchen counter - no table or anything. And I mean do it yourself literally. No coffee was made, I was supposed to do it. Breakfast was all packaged: cold cereal or instant oatmeal, packaged pastry, etc. And it wasn't laid out or served. I was just directed to the fridge (or kitchen cabinet for dishes and silverware). I won't go on... and I won't go back ... and don't recommend it. I would have been better off staying at a more conveniently located hotel for 25% more.

I would come back!

This B&B is very clean, very pleasant and very convenient to public transportation. The owners were delightful. This is not a fancy B&B but completely enjoyable and perfect for our needs while we were in the Boston area. We also appreciated the off street parking for the few days we needed a car. I would recommend Lotus Place without hesitation.

Very nice rooms and location, lovely host

My husband and I had a great experience staying at the Lotus Place. We had originally reserved a room on the 2nd floor, but my husband's leg was bothering him (we are an old couple!) and the very nice host quickly offered to move us and all our luggage to a more convenient room on the first floor even after we already settled in. The rooms were wonderful, very nicely furnished and clean and well equipped with all the amenities we needed. We will definitely be back to Lotus place next time we are back in Cambridge. Thank you!!

What a find

Usually a hotel stayer, I am very glad I gave bed and breakfasts a shot. Lotus Place is clean, comfortable in a very convenient location (walkable to Central and Harvard Squares) and with a price that is definately much cheaper than I expected. Dining was continental but they did have a wide selection of breakfast goodies. Will definately come back here again when I am in the Cambridge area.

Amazing Value, will stay again

Came to Cambridge/Boston area to visit some colleges and had the pleasure of staying at this inn. My room was very comfortable and furnished with a nice flat screen TV, free internet access and I even had the luxury of having my own bathroom. The host was very polite and nice, helped with my luggage and answered all my questions I had about the area patiently and informatively. Breakfast was pretty standard, continental style but still a wide range of selections. Amazing value for the price, would most definitely consider coming back if I decide to visit the Cambridge/Boston area again.
