We stayed at Veritas during our weekend visit to our daughter and were quite happy to find a friendly and homely environment so close to the Harvard University campus. Staff were cordial and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable albeit a little squeezed on space compared to mainstream hotel brands and chains. Bathroom and amenities were again clean and...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed July 31, 2016

Hotel Veritas is a small hotel, in converted townhouses, on the edge of the Harvard campus in the heart of Cambridge. Our room was small, but well appointed and laid out to make the best of the space available. The front desk service was excellent--we inquired about a local restaurant, by the time we came back downstairs from changing, they... More

We had a great stay at Hotel Veritas. Loved the boutique feeling with the clean, modern aesthetic. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Yes, it is smaller than big chain hotels but it was clean and cozy, plenty of space for my husband and me. Just a quick walk to the train station and the heart of Harvard. The free... More

Everything from check in to check out was easy and very pleasant. VERITAS is a boutique hotel a few minutes walk to the center of Harvard Square. It features wonderful amenities such as refreshments in the lobby round the clock. The standard queen room, though compact was perfect for our short stay and featured a balcony and radiant heated floors... More

We just had two of the worst nights we have ever had in the history of our hotel stays in 31 years of marriage. Months ago when I was looking to book a room for the Harvard Yale game the only hotel that had a vacancy was the Hotel Veritas. Now I know why. It started with our less than... More

Lots of restaurants well within walking distance. Definitely will repeat stay here - more affordable and nice and convenient compared to bigger names around Its pretty small hotel so you'd probably have... More

Other than the location, it's difficult to imagine why you'd stay here. The room is a bed with a small path around it. I can hear the woman in the next room arguing on the phone. Their parking garage can't handle an electric car, and it's really and truly expensive.

We could never score a room at the lovely Hotel Veritas while our daughter was a student in Cambridge. (It is a small hotel and fills up fast.) It's perfectly located for all college-related activities, and has a very accommodating staff. Book early!

This is one of the nicest boutique hotels we've stayed in. The staff were incredibly helpful, especially Laura and Megan, and couldn't help us enough. The hotel is in a quiet area of Cambridge and is within walking distance of two metro stations. The room was beautiful and clean. We had ample clean towels and the hotel provides complimentary hot/cold... More
