“Top Quality Service”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Excellent service, comfortable room. I was delayed and didn't arrive until the very small hours but David was there to meet me and check me in. Very quiet location within easy walking distance of Harvard square.

I spent a week at Parkside On Ellery, very cozy, quiet and charming place. David, the owner, is very friendly and discrete. I also enjoyed breakfast, of continental type and healthy.

Our stay was lovely! The rooms are neat, clean, and all unique. David was very friendly and helpful and the value is terrific. About a five minute walk to Harvard Square it's super convenient. Highly recommended especially for parents visiting kids at Harvard or one of the many colleges in Boston.

The room, breakfast, and price were all very good, but the location was fabulous, opposite a small park, close to Harvard Square. There was a small grocery and many restaurants within a few blocks. On street parking was not a problem, much to my surprise.

Parkside on Ellery was a charming place to stay, and at a considerable discount to Cambridge-area hotels of the same quality. If you are there to visit Harvard it is an ideal location. My business was actually in Kendall Square, so it was somewhat less convenient, but I was easily able to get a cab in the mornings when I was pressed for time, and it was an enjoyable walk home (~1.5 miles) in the afternoons. The owner was friendly, but also respectful of privacy. Privacy was also aided by the fact that breakfast is delivered to the room, not served in a common area.

Room Tip: The mattress in the Victorian room was a bit firm for my liking, but iwas of high quality so if you...

Wow, words cannot describe how comfortable we were at our recent stay at Parkside On Ellery, David, the Owner, was incredibly friendly, the rooms were immaculate, and the common areas were very well kept. Besides the local, this B&B gave an incredible nights sleep. Upon getting our day started the next day we were treated to a really nice Breakfast that was generous and filling. I was referred to this B&B through colleagues and was pleasantly pleased that the reviews they gave were exactly what was experienced. I already booked for our Summer get-aways and am looking forward to our return to seeing David, and his Parkside on Ellery.

Room Tip: Only tip is to book early.....because I personally can't imagine staying anywhere else and am as...

If you enjoy style, homeyness, cleanliness, proximity to everything Cambridge has to offer, breakfasts served to your room, and a proprietor who cares about everyone who stays at his inn, this is for you. We have stayed there about 5 or 6 times and would not consider going anywhere else.
