One great thing about Harvard Square is the high energy and bustle, especially when school is in session. What makes The Charles so perfect is that it is a tranquil respite right on the edge of all the happenings.
Best Hotel in Cambridge/ location is perfect
Location was excellent. The room was very nice and comfortable. Excellent farm to table restaurant and bar. Although they had a parking garage, the elevator to the lobby was out of order so you had to take the stairs and the stairs lead to outside the front entrance. Very inconvenient if carrying any bags from the car and also because of sub-zero temps that weekend. Also no in and out access for self parking at $40 per night. If you leave you have to pay again.
Everything is within walking distance as I enjoyed a glorious autumn afternoon. I browsed endless rows of books at the Coop, watched rowers glide along the Charles River and ran stairs at Harvard Stadium while the football team engaged in a spirited practice. When I returned to the hotel, the room smelled great. They must have a special scent. I enjoyed the organic soap, shampoo and lotion that came with the room. Henrietta's Table is great for breakfast / brunch, and I highly recommend The Harvest for dinner. A very nice stay.
The room was very drafty near the windows- lots of cold air coming in
The Charles Hotel is centrally located in Cambridge, so it's very easy to get around the town. We walked wherever we needed to go and got there quickly and easily. The hotel has several dining options and an actual fitness club, not just a room with some cardio equipment and universal equipment. The wifi works well and the staff were all very helpful. It's pretty expensive to stay here, but we found a good deal on one of the discount hotel sites. I'd return in a heart beat.
Great location near the center of Harvard Square. Rialto is an excellent restaurant. Regatta Bar is great if you like jazz. Hotel is in need of renovation. New England shabby-chic means it's just a basic hotel in terms of cleanliness and room amenities. Bathrooms are seriously dated and in need of complete redo. Service levels are mediocre. Business center is a joke (1 computer and an attached printer). Prices are very high: you are paying for the location.
The Charles is a perfect place to stay in Cambridge. It is well located, well designed with contemporary clean lines but still warm, and the Rialto is a fabulous restaurant in the hotel. We had a corner room which was quite spacious which we really appreciated as we were staying multiple nights.
Well decorated rooms. Convenient to Harvard square Officious front desk staff. Being told they couldn't change our departure and charges despite a family emergency because it was our fault we used a third party reservation service. Being told entirely dissimilar rooms were the same. Smelly comforter covered by clean sheets. No coffee maker in room. Ice available only on request from room service.
Excellent service and superior restaurant. Very friendly staff who facilitated the check in and out as well as the luggage. I was in and out many times with my 7 year old grandson and he was always greeting with a smile. My daughter belongs to your health club and so they are used to going to your hotel. Overall, a well located, efficient and very quiet hotel.
Location was great with excellent service and nice trait ants around in the plaza
Friendly staff went out of their way to see that we were taken care of. Not a thing
Good place, excellent service they did not leave any room for expectations. NA

The hotel is conveniently located to Harvard. Great location. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and I appreciated the complimentary coffee, tea, juice, etc. The staff was very polite and helpful. Unfortunately, I didn't know the subway ran right below the hotel on Mass Ave. This was pretty loud and interrupted sleep. I stayed on the first floor facing Mass Ave so a room on an upper floor near the rear of the hotel probably would have been better.
The hotel is very cute and very well run. In the lobby, they offer free coffee, tea, juice and water. I had to switch rooms, and they were very accommodating. The hotel is super noisy. You can feel and hear the T (subway) running under the hotel. And my first room had beautiful windows onto Mass Ave, but they were not soundproof. It was unbearably noisy.

WALKING DISTANCE FROM EVERYTHING, VERY FRIENDLY STAFF
Great location. Very pleasant staff. It was not really a hotel. More like a boarding house with short-term rooms. Almost a dump.
Very clean inn. Good location walking distance to Harvard/ Boston. Close to MIT. small bathroom
Breakfast is poor, for such amount of stars should have been better, no warm food at all, just eggs
Location Bed was uncomfortable
Although breakfast time is from 7:00, most foods and drinks were ready very early. It was nice for leaving early in the morning. And the location was very quiet. The room had no bath (only shower).
Location, close to Harvard Square and the the t Price, although Boston is an expensive city to visit
Helping attitude of staffs. breakfast was too cold.
Staff The sheets and towels had way too much perfumed detergent.
Friendly service, location, very reasonable rate for that location, quaint room
The staff is extremely helpful. Rooms were very clean. The location is great with easy access to the T, Harvard Square, etc. The breakfast room is not very comfortable. Too small, no tables of appropriate height to eat off of. Food is mediocre; but not really any different than I would eat at home...
The location is excellent and the staff was perfectly friendly. Room was adequately clean. Room was very small and awkward, extremely basic appointments - would have been fine at a bargain price but for almost $200 per night after taxes, it was far from a bargain. To be fair i didn't find anything cheaper in Cambridge, but still i was disappointed - I should have stayed further out and taken the T in
Location is pretty good, with 10 mins to Harvard square and 20 mins to Porter square; fairly stable internet. The room was tiny, so was the TV (and placed on a high cupboard); no option to not have towels replaced everyday; have to go out to the hallway to make tea/coffee; slow internet.
My account was debited twice, as of three days of checking out it has still not come off.
The staff was very friendly and the breakfasts were outstanding. The street directly outside the Inn was being worked on and was very noisy early in the morning. I think guests should have been warned of this work in advance which had been going on for some weeks.
We did not enjoy our stay - room was tiny - a single at most. Plumbing system started at 5.30 a.m. - our room was on top floor. Breakfast good. However we would not recommend.
Nice room well appointed clean and a very good breakfast. Each room was unique and the staff was very friendly b Construction noise but that was not the hotel's fault.
Pleasant welcome. Excellent breakfast
Accessible to Harvard College. Charming historic home. Free parking. Great breakfast.
Lovely, friendly and perfectly located between Harvard Square and Porter Square.
Individual 'feel' and great location
The breakfasts were absolutely fabulous. During our visit, there were some road works in front of the Inn, which may make it difficult for those with cars.
I have stayed there several times over the years and have found all the rooms comfrotable. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts and breakfast service are always special. Each room is unique.
