A comfortable, no-fuss place to...
Liked: Bowers House was a great find. It is on a quiet street just three blocks from Davis Square, which has a bunch of great restaurants and a Red Line T stop with fast service to Harvard Sq., MIT, and downtown Boston. It also has the start of the Minuteman Trail, a charming walk/run/bike greenway that goes on for miles, all the way to Concord, MA -- great if you like to run a few miles every day, as I do. Prices are reasonable: we paid under $200/night, a bargain especially with free parking, which is a huge benefit if you came to Boston by car as we did (you don't really need a car in the Boston area otherwise). The owners are very nice and the breakfast was simple but nutritious (fruit, yogurt, cereal).
Disliked: The room was comfortable but a little chilly (we visited in late November, outdoor temps in the 20s-40s). I didn't ask if we could borrow a space heater or something like that, which would have solved the problem.

Nice and warm owners, generous...
Liked: Welcoming owner, nice and warm and generous. nice location, calm and at reach to many restaurants and supermarket same environment too and at a relatively close proximity to transport.
Disliked: I was suffocating from the carpets and the lack of sun. It triggered an allergy and coughing all the nights. I would never recommend this place for someone who has sensitivity to old carpets, dust and humidity with no son exposure.

Liked: The host was very nice and welcoming. The location is perfect, a very nice neighbourhood with family houses and many restaurants. Free parking directly on site which was very convenient. Public transport to the city center very close, so you´re in the city in about 20 minutes. What we absolutely disliked was the brown spider webs on the ceiling (showing they are there for a long time) and a lot of someone else`s hair on the bedding and blankets on the bed. It was not properly cleaned and we didn´t think it was cozy or relaxing at all because of that.
