I would highly recommend this apartment, for both long and short stays in Cambridge. We stayed here for 6 months (with our newborn!) while in town for a visiting professorship and found it suited our needs perfectly. Although very 'cosy' with the three of us in there, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This would be perfect for a single or couple and has all the conveniences you need for a comfortable stay - whether you choose to self cater or take advantage of the many cafes, restaurants and bars in the area. Doriana (owner) lives upstairs and was very helpful any time we had questions about the apartment or local services. The location is perfect, just 10 min walk to Central or Harvard Squares (T red line) and buses running along Mass Ave that can take you into town, over to Brookline or all the way to South Boston! Overall, we had an awesome time staying here and would do so again in a heartbeat if work bought us back to Boston.
