I stayed here one night for a job interview. It is expensive, but this is Boston. Everything is expensive. It is a small hotel, looks like a converted row house or apartment building. The room was larger than you average hotel room with a very large bath and a small balcony with table and chairs. Location is pretty good. You... More

This is a lovely boutique-style hotel right off of Mass. Ave. but giving more of a quiet, neighborhood feel. Yes, my room was small, but the hotel doesn't keep its room sizes a secret! Certainly large enough for one person, with a very comfortable bed, chair, desk, and nice bathroom. I probably interacted with 5-6 staff members, and they were... More

Lovely, immaculate and beautifully stylish boutique hotel. Amazing responsive staff. Just great little touches like the complimentary coffee and cappuccino bar, wonderful lounge to sit and relax in. Nice and quiet, no crowds or concrete mazes like the big chain hotels.

We came across this hotel by chance and how lucky we did. It was amazing! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the location was perfect and the rooms were stylish and comfortable. We opted for the petite room and it was small but big enough for a hotel stay. The bathroom was fantastic, very spacious and seemed brand new.... More

Yes, the rooms are on the small side, but they are perfectly comfortable; they have a great space in the lobby to hang out, enjoy their coffee or wine and spirits. They have a nice patio, weather permitting. And it's a fabulous location: away from the bustle of Harvard Sq, but just a few minutes walk. There's a great tea,... More

Hotel Veritas is a fashionable little boutique hotel conveniently located to Harvard and the Harvard train station. The decorating is chic and tasteful and the room are quite comfortable. The petite proportions of the hotel make it seem luxurious and cozy! The staff, such as concierge Brandon, from Boston, are extremely helpful and generous with dispensing information. The pricing really... More

We stayed for two nights in July, 2014. Can't say too much about this place, lovely clean rooms (202 had a wonderful deck off of it), nice neutral upscale decor, but the staff are what makes this place special. Not your typical hotel staff, but warm, helpful people who go the extra mile to assist you. We definitely recommend and... More
