Located nearby Harvard University, this guest house is in the middle of a variety of city amenities like shops, restaurants, and museums. The New England Aquarium is also nearby and a family favorite. The guest house has a family room especially for families. It has two double beds and can accommodate up to four guests. Since this guesthouse only has 12 rooms, larger families can book separate guestrooms and still feel like they are enjoying time together. There are several bathrooms in the hotel that are maintained and clean. The microwave and refrigerator are set in a common area, and a playground for children is onsite.

Our room was on the first floor and had no screen on the window. The room was hot and stuffy and we couldn't leave the window open as it had no screen and was right on the sidewalk. When I opened the front door to get some air, we received a chastising telephone call. Apparently, the invisible staff monitored the camera; they were never seen in person.
As elders, the bathroom on our floor was important. But there was no shower or tub. The half bath did not appear to have been cleaned during our four day stay.
Two lights were burnt out in our room and two of the three lights in the TV room were broken.
The kitchen was dirty. The frig and stove especially so. Neither
Were cleaned during our stay. The dishes were few and shabby. The breakfast food was eggs, white bread and really bad coffee. Fruit appeared, and quickly disappeared, twice during our four day stay.
It's a shame because it appears someone made a good effort to paint, decorate and furnish the house. It's the maintenance and cleaning that haven't been provided.
Despite it's relatively inexpensive price, I would not stay there again.
I stayed in the Amory Guest House in Nov 2017. Positive: the bed was really nice, and the location was (for me) just perfect, right in between MIT and Harvard. However, I find it heavily overpriced for what you get: it really is just a bed, as it has ahead bathrooms, and there is no staff available. It turned out I could not close the door of my room (literally, not that the door didn't lock, it didn't even close, unless someone would push it from the other side, i.e. the hallway) and despite frequent communication with the owner, there was clearly no sense of urgency to actually fix it. And indeed, it didn't get fixed and communication was unsatisfactory to say the least.
