1st time staying near porter square. Frost house was wonderful. Spacious, with plenty of room to just be. Small kitchen, but with everything we needed. Close to the T, Shaw's market, a very fine wine and beer store, as well as many ther percs. Everything worked as expected. Only thing we wished had been different: tv was in bedroom. Better...

We rented the room and bathroom unit, since we didn't need a kitchen, and it was very pleasant for our two nights. Lots of natural light, and it had a good window air conditioner. The mattress was very, very comfortable, even for us two old folks with bad backs! It's on a quiet, tree-lined street, yet very close to the...

I wanted to love this place. Karin and her associates were very friendly and helpful and the location is perfect for Cambridge and Harvard. Self-catering is always a plus, too. We stayed in apartment 7A for three nights and didn't sleep well the entire stay. There was noise from the yoga studio above from early in the morning until the...

BnBBay, Owner at Gray House Cambridge Accommodations, responded to this review

We are so sorry this guest did not sleep well. We do not typically get complaints about noise from the yoga studio or from surrounding apartments. The yoga studio classes are fairly small, students do not wear shoes, and there are no classes in the early morning (before 8:30) or late evening. Our neighbors are usually very courteous but we...

We loved our 4 days stay. We agree with all the positive comments. Tanji the caretaker was always gracious and ready to help. We stayed in the 2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath ground floor apartment. It was quiet and comfortable and quite near all services. The only reservation is that there are not enough kitchen utensils. We cannot really cook...

We currently have a child who is a student at Harvard and another one who is at Tufts and were up to visit both 10/20-10/23. We found Frost House to be a very good alternative to Harvard Sq. accommodations (where we usually stay). The two bedroom unit was larger than my wife and I needed, but it was what was...

My dad and I were visiting Boston for a week and needed a place to stay. Luckily we found this quiet apartment only a five minute walk from the Porter T-Stop. The apartment has two bedrooms, one just a bit roomier than the other, but both are very comfortable. It also has one and a half baths, and a very...
