I was not expecting too much but this small hotel impressed. Yes, they do not offer breakfast but the Nespresso machine for free is a piece of heaven for me! And you can find breakfast service outside in less than one block. Small room but very clean, new and decoration is unique. Very good customer service and you can reach... More

We stayed at the Hotel Veritas in December 2014 while in Cambridge for a friend's daughter's wedding. It is located right adjacent to Harvard Square. A lovely boutique hotel with small but very comfortable rooms, a friendly and pleasant staff, 24 hour coffee service with tasty rolls at breakfast time. Parking is difficult in Harvard Square but the hotel has... More

We had a delightful stay at this hotel. Service was fantastic, the bed was super comfy with really nice linens. We enjoyed the lobby with a nice fire going. Over all, a great place to hand in Cambridge at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

I have stayed at a number of lovely boutique hotels, but this was really one of the nicest. It's small, as one might expect in the general area, but quite luxe in all other respects. The staff were welcoming and helpful and helped manage parking, which is never easy in Harvard Square. They were accommodating of late check out (I... More

The hotel's website gives an accurate (if naturally glass-half-full) characterization of the hotel: small with small rooms, quirky, congenial, in a convenient location, with helpful staff. One big plus that the website doesn't mention is that the heat is under-floor radiant heat. A lifesaver in the frigid New England winter! The bathroom floor is comfortable to stand on barefoot, and... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2014

In summary Good: Helpful, friendly staff, conveniently located near parts of Harvard's campus, clean rooms, good on-site (valet) parking Bad: Oddly shaped rooms with quirky furnishing choices, some non-functioning lamps and phones, noise level of some rooms quite high. I've stayed twice at Hotel Veritas in recent weeks, as I have a student nearby. Seems to be a former apartment... More

Ideally placed for Harvard Square, only 5 minutes from the T. Comfortable rooms, great showers (by UK standards). The service is excellent and ever present. The Veritas does not offer breakfast but there is a supply of fresh, sweet, crisp pastries to go with a plentiful supply of tea/coffee/water and orange juice which are available all day. Later on guests... More

Like many other reviewers, we were impressed with the excellent location, helpful staff, and the appealing 24 hour availability of water, juice, and sodas. (In the morning, the hotel adds small breakfast pastries. These are not the typical American pastries, but Spanish sweet olive oil tortas. Delicious -- sweet and crispy like elephant ear pastries -- and just enough to... More

My husband and I stayed there in September for a Harvard reunion. The hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance to Harvard Square, the Yard and more. I agree with TravellarkFL, the noise is the only issue. Not from other guests, but outside noise. For those who normally live in the middle of big city will likely not notice, but... More
