Lovely apartment in A+ location

Apartment was wonderful, and the location (about a 5 minute walk to Porter Square Red Line stop) was fantastic. We rented a car (and were provided with a temporary on-street parking permit by landlord), because we were visiting family in the suburbs. However, for vacation-goers who are looking tour in and around downtown Boston/Cambridge, a car is not necessary, given the apartment's proximity to public transportation. Porter Square is charming, with a wide array of restaurants, shopping (incl supermarket), etc. Our family consists of two adults and two teenagers. Our son took over the living room for his bedroom (landlord allowed him to borrow a comfortable, queen-sized air mattress), as we used the back door as our primary entrance thus affording our son some privacy. Landlord was nice and easy to deal with. Apartment was well decorated but not overly fragile or fussy. Apartment is ideal for a couple but works fine for a family with one or two children. Only negative was no central a/c (apartment has room units in each bedroom which worked fine for our visit, as it wasn't overly hot).
Tourists without a Car,
