Room was on the small side, but 5 minutes walk to Harvard Yard. Parking $34 per nite but valet always prompt. Bathroom was nice and large. Free bottled water, soda, coffee and tea! Overall a good experience at a reasonable price in a great location!

The rooms are great value for money are very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The reception area is really nice and there is a fabulous hot drinks station with cold drinks available too. I would recommend...

We stay in Cambridge frequently and I was surprised that I had not found this hotel before. The location is perfect. The price for a petite queen is only slightly higher than some of the lower priced B&B's but the room and location are significantly better. Although breakfast is not included, they do provide orange juice, coffee and a biscuit...

A very affordable, upscale boutique hotel a few blocks from Harvard Square. The staff could not have been friendlier. The room was small, but adequate, and immaculate. The hotel offers valet parking for $34, which we found to be well worth it. Complimentary coffee, espresso, tea, soda, bottled water and juices, in the lounge 24 hours, was a nice touch.

What a delightful hotel find! The rooms are on the smaller side, but elegantly appointed with luxurious bath towels. The staff is friendly and courteous. Complementary lobby refreshments include Nespresso drinks, juices, soft drinks, water, and snacks. On cold days, the lobby fireplace is a great place to relax and "thaw out". The hotel is located near Harvard Square and...

We were visiting colleges and family in Cambridge for the weekend and needed a well-located hotel within walking distance from Harvard and from restaurants. We booked two rooms -- one had a queen bed with balcony and the other had two doubles with a balcony. Given that it is March, we certainly did not need the balconies, but we wanted...

My son is a student at Harvard, and my husband and I have stayed at a number of hotels in the Cambridge area. This week, we tried Hotel Veritas, and our search for a go-to hotel in the area is now over! It's a very friendly, charming hotel which is well-located right near Harvard Square. There are drinks and snacks...

Very welcoming hotel! Greeted warmly and had a great stay. Rooms are small but comfortable. Every person behind the front desk was lovely. Lobby offers complimentary coffee, tea and water - very nice touch! Frette linens in room were also a great touch. Location in Harvard square was terrific. Double beds are hard for a tall family of 3...but the...

If palatial rooms are your thing, the Veritas is not for you; rooms are very small, and the "petite" room is positively teeny. However, fixtures and fittings are high quality, rooms are clean, and beds are comfy. More importantly, the staff are super friendly and accommodating, there is a little area by reception with free bottles of water, fancy Spanish...
