“Delightful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

My weekend at Hotel Veritas was a pleasure. The concierge remembered my name throughout the visit and the other staff members were cheerful, responsive, and professional. Even though it's on a corner of Massachusetts Avenue, it's extremely quiet. I slept well and enjoyed my cozy and tastefully-furnished room. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when I'm in Cambridge.

I travel to Cambridge on business, and Hotel Veritas is my preferred place to stay if I need to be by Harvard (if I'm heading to MIT, I stay at Hotel Marlowe). It’s nice and quiet, the rooms are not particularly large but big enough, and the beds are very comfortable. There’s a nice little beverage center by the front desk, and a little self-serve business center if you need to print documents. The staff is terrific, consistently very helpful.

We recently stayed at this lovely little hotel and will definitely return. It is so unique and comfortable. Because this is an old Victorian home turned into a 32 room hotel, the space is crowded but used wisely. We loved our Queen room and found the bed and pillows very comfortable. The bathroom is not large but works efficiently. Our room was on the Mass Ave side but noise was not a problem. The staff was helpful, efficient, and pleasant. Every inch of space is used in the lobby and at the reception desk, but it is cozy and inviting. Coffee, tea, water,& juice are available all the time, and one can order wine, beer, or a cocktail (I think), although we did not partake on this trip. There is no food service but many choices nearby. The cinnamon tortas put out for breakfast are perfect with a cup of coffee. We wanted something close to Harvard Square and unique. This hotel was perfect!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Veritas. We stayed for two nights in November of 2013. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small but very comfortable and quiet. Even though we were on the first floor there was very little noise and we slept well. We loved the bath products they provided also! The complimentary coffee, juice and water is a very nice touch. The next time we are in Cambridge, this will be our first choice.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor and it was fine! Very quiet and private.

The service was fabulous --all the staff were warm, helpful, and responsive to our requests and questions. (We had asked for foam pillows, and the staff told us they had "de-feathered" the room.)The location is good -- not quite in the center of Harvard Square but very close. The room we had ( a queen balcony) was comfortable but not large. The bed, pillows, and bathrobe were all comfortable. There was no desk, so I think it might have been challenging if one planned to work in one's room.

Room Tip: Room descriptions include size of room, so pay attention to that since the rooms tend to be on the s...

Hotel Veritas has close proximity to public transportation, stores and restaurants in Harvard Square, and makes it an attractive lodging option. I had a petite Queen room designed in a quirky hexagonal shape. The limited space is made up for by its coziness and easy accessibility to power plugs, light switches and other amenities. The friendly service staff makes personal calls to the guest shortly after check-in to make sure everything is in order and the guest has no issue in settling in comfortably. The coffee, tea, hot water, soda and juices are all readily available to guest at any time, and the counter staff are professional in their service to make sure the guest's request is met. Great hotel for anyone who appreciates attentive services.

They were kind, the place was clean, beautiful, and convenient to everything! They didn't nickel and dime you for anything...bottled water, tea, coffee, and juice were available all day and free. The business service had printers and computers and printing was free. Overall I was very impressed! Would stay again when back. Oh, and price was reasonable!
