Hannah's apartment is in a great location in between central and Harvard. Very easy to get around, safe, and convenient. Hannah was extremely communicative, and made the trip so easy!

Hannah is incredibly quick to respond, and very accommodating. She worked to solve any problems we encountered during our trip. The apartment's location is ideal for Harvard University -- a quick walk takes you anywhere on campus or in the Square. The bed was very comfortable, too!

Coming to Boston? Need a cozy and comfortable place to hang your hat? Than this place might be just what you're looking for. Accessible to the T (10 minute walk) means the location can't be beat - lively streets, but not loud and shops, stores and food everywhere. Street parking with guest pass was surprisingly easy! The space itself is cozy and comfortable with a queen-sized bed in a nicely sized bedroom. Bed was comfortable and although there was a phantom door leading somewhere, it was secured and added to the charm of the space. The kitchen was well-equipped, with windows overlooking the street and even had a singing "teapot". Living/Dining area provided a relaxing couch, temperamental TV (but whose here to watch that!?), excellent WiFi service and spacious dining area. Hannah was responsive to all of our communications and we felt she genuinely cared about our comfort. Directions on accessing the unit were easy, on-street parking was unimaginably easy to locate and when we're next in Boston we'd come back to stay here - for sure!

Great location - easy walk to Harvard Yard and Square, but with lots of great restaurants and shops in the immediate area. We arrived late at night but had no problem checking in - emailed instructions were perfect. The apartment had everything we needed, including a mattress top for the sofa bed that made it very comfortable. The AC was most welcome after a long, hot, day of moving into the dorm. There were no problems, but I have no doubt that if there had been, our texts would have been answered immediately. We've done a lot of Airbnbs all over the world. This one rates as one of the easiest and most civilized experiences so far. Thank you, Hannah!

Apartment was small but clean and tidy. The location could not have been better for proximity to great bars, cafes and restaurants in Cambridge and public transportation very close as well. Hannah was so helpful with our request for a later checkout.

The apartment was clean and exactly as advertised. It was fully stocked with necessities. The location was about halfway between Harvard and Central Time stations with a lot of amenities on Massachusetts Ave. Hannah was an outstanding host - super communicative via texts.

Hannah User ProfileHannah is a superhost.

I love to cook, and nothing makes me happier than having friends and family share a meal and entertaining stories around my dinner table. I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, and learning about new cultures and ideas. I've been living in Cambridge - first as a student and now as a young working professional - for the last eight years, and I've loved every moment. I'm always eager to share my love of the city with visitors.
