I loved the attention to details...they have Frette bed and bath linen, Hermes shower gel, Moreover they have complementary juices an nespresso coffee 24h. The only downside is the room size, very small!! But the location ( very close... More

The people who run this hotel have put a lot of thought into ways of making guests comfortable, such as coffee, juice and bottled water available around the clock; a computer room and lounge with free wifi and free computer access; and an extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff.

We came up to Cambridge for a single overnight trip. Compared to the other possible hotels in the area of Harvard Square it was on the lower end of price and upper end of quality. It's a charming 1920s or 30s style hotel. the kind you see in old movies. The staff was friendly and very helpful. they offer onsite... More

We stayed for 3 nights. The building and the decor and structural details are beautiful (mouldings, furnishings, etc). Staff was very nice. The hotel advertises a lovely outdoor patio space, which was under construction when we were there and not available. That was disappointing, as there was no outdoor space to enjoy. Our room also had a balcony, but the... More

Although we live only a suburb away we had never stayed in Cambridge and needed "time away" from the daily grind of work. After much research we chose the Hotel Veritas and were very glad we did. The Cambridge River Arts Festival was held the weekend we stayed and the hotel was in easy walking distance to Central Square one... More

I recently spent 3 nights at Hotel Veritas. I chose the hotel based on (1) its location close to Harvard where I was taking a course (2) my understanding that it was on a quiet residential street in Cambridge and (3) what I thought was complimentary access to a gym across the street. I was very disappointed that my room... More

A very lovely boutique hotel located at an excellent neighborhood. We stayed 2 nights and loved our room and our own balcony. Coffee/tea available for free at the lobby. Staffs were excellent. Famous yogurt shop, berry-lime, is right across the street. Valet parking available at the hotel with additional charge. Room and bathroom are tiny but clean. The heated bathroom... More

Great hotel! Clean, new, and modern with friendly and helpful staff and complimentary coffee, tea, sodas, water, etc. I got the petite queen room, which was on the smaller side but not cramped, and still very nice with a nice bay window and plenty of light. Would definitely recommend this hotel!
