Down the street from Harvard Square Hotel VERITAS offers a boutique hotel experience, while the rooms are not large we appreciated the balcony to soak up the morning sun with the excellent coffee and juices provided. The desk staff was quite helpful and rooms well cleaned

Hotel Veritas is a small, boutique hotel. Our room and the public hotel spaces seemed new and clean, and the staff was extremely helpful. Complimentary water, juice, soda, espresso and morning snacks were provided, too - a welcome change from larger hotel chains. The room was quite small; HVAC seemed a bit challenged although I am not sure why. Good... More

I spent two comfortable nights at the Hotel Veritas. The staff are quite friendly and helpful, and make you feel welcome. My "petite queen" was upgraded, so I don't know how small my room would have been but my regular queen was fine. As others have said, the amenities are great- free water, various juices & sodas, coffee & tea... More

We were excited to stay at Hotel Veritas for a recent Boston trip (casual business traveler). We needed a room with two beds, and the only one they could offer with a non-queen/king setup was a double twin bed. When we arrived the front desk attendant was very nice and offered us free coffee/iced coffee/water available any time. The lobby... More

Not a lot of room to spread out, but lots of caring touches like coffee and snacks downstairs, low-key but helpful staff, and good business center. The room was pretty tight, but had great sunlight and a lovely street view. Great location near all the Harvard Square spots.

Can't beat location. Lovely front desk folks.Helpful and lovely. Lots of nice little amenities from excellent espresso, to fresh water, free wifi, radiant heated bathroom floors. Just lovely. Easy parking. However, rooms felt dull and old. Cheap linens. LOUD especially if room is on Mass avenue. They offer earplugs at front desk. So this must be a common complaint. Go... More

Liked: location, quick coffee, water, snacks, helpful staff, clean rooms, heated bathroom floor, comfortable bed and pillows, electrical outlets by bedside tables, air temperature controls. Disliked: priciness, but we were there during the Marathon so it was somewhat to be expected

Little, cozy, chic, adorable. A gentle staff that will reply any of your requests with assertiveness. Better than Waldorf, almost a Fours Seasons. Just around the corner to the Harvard campus, you also will enjoy Zoe's, a restaurant to have a long and nice brunch.

I attended a conference in Harvard and stayed here for 3 nights. The location was convenient as it was only a few blocks away for Harvard Square. As many people have indicated, the rooms are very small, but they are nicely decorated. My room, in particular, had a large bathroom, a balcony and it was facing the street side. It... More

Situated right in the heart of lovely Cambridge, this is a sweet, chic hotel. There is a great lobby, front area, with a cozy fireplace where it is so comfortable to sit with friends or just hang out and read. Great expresso coffee, tea, all day long in the hotel lobby. Valet parking, (which was great in Boston's snowy streets... More
