We really enjoyed our weekend stay at Hotel Veritas. We were visiting our daughter at Harvard and the location was perfect - easy walks to everything wanted to do in Cambrige and easy access to public transit for going to Boston. The room was small but charming and immaculate. We enjoyed our snacks and espressos from the machine in the... More

A very nice hotel where the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. On tap complimentary water, soda juice, tea and coffee. Small rooms but immaculate . I had a petite queen which was lovely but my friends had a twin which was very small. Would definitely recommend .

This is a sweet, small, meticulously kept hotel. The staff service here is over-the-top helpful and friendly - I arrived early and they bent over backwards to get me into a room right then. The front desk offers fruit, juice, soft drinks and coffee 24/7. My small queen room was clean, cozy and nicely laid out. The bathroom and shower... More

Blowdryer is in the closet... More

I think I must have had a crappy room because I was located on the first level facing the street. You can imagine the noise coming through my windows. I guess if you have a better location in the hotel, then perhaps you'd have a better experience. Overall the room is terrific but ask for an upper level!

This is a nice boutique hotel just outside of Harvard Square in Cambridge, so the location can't be beat. Plenty of restaurants and things to do within walking distance. Check-in was easy, staff was very friendly, and there are free drinks (coffee, tea, soda, water) available in the lobby at any time. Room service is limited, but they do offer... More

I stayed here for two nights while visiting my son at Harvard. I loved the boutique feel of the hotel, which is wonderfully located 2 blocks from Harvard Yard on a quiet section of Massachusetts Ave. The hotel has been completely redone and is beautifully appointed. The rooms are very small, but the baths are modern and very functional. I... More

I was visiting my son who is working on his PhD at Harvard. I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. I had a king room which was a little small but well appointed. The front desk staff were fantastic. There's coffee and sweets in the lobby and a warm fireplace. I highly recommend this hotel which at around $200... More

I chose this hotel for my husband when he had a business trip to Cambridge. All I can say is that I can't wait to go back with him next time! He raved about the room, the personnel and the location..plus, the price was right! This will be our choice in Cambridge when we return to visit our son at... More
