Hotel Veritas is a 31-room independent upscale hotel located in Harvard Square offering intimate service in a hip Cantabrigian setting. The entire look and feel of the hotel is elegant and current, but with a respectful nod towards our traditional and historic neighborhood. The guest rooms are designed with the fine detailing of an old New England residence and furnishings that are interesting contemporary pieces with rich fabrics and textures.

This hotel has a great location and as a small boutique hotel offers simple convenience including downstairs gourmet coffee station. It is a basic hotel but it is more than sufficient for most people while traveling. Some of the rooms have small balconies which are fabulous take note that the street can be noisy at night

I love the charm of this hotel in the heart of Cambridge/Harvard. While the rooms are small, the bed is comfortable and the rooms have a unique charm not found in the chains nearby. It is conveniently located near all things Harvard. (Boston Burger and Zoe's are right across the street.) Very friendly staff. Nice coffee bar. Decently priced given location. The only downside is it can get a little loud with trucks unloading in the middle of the night (only one night and we were facing the restaurants).

Wonderful two night stay in a king room on the 3rd floor with a small balcony. The bed was very comfortable. Our room was a nice size, with a spacious bathroom that had a huge walk-in shower. The hotel is in a quiet location, easy walk to the Harvard T stop, with plenty of different restaurants in the area. The staff were all really friendly, knowledgable, and efficient. I spoke to Justin several times before we arrived, he was especially attentive and helpful. For the price and great location, this is a hotel I'll definitely stay in again.

excellent boutique hotel with friendly helpful staff. 10 min easy walk from T & Harvard Square. Plush bedding. King bed. Comfortable space if compact. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate bar downstairs. Even in blizzard, staff ran smoothly ... even shoveling snow at entrance and out to connecting sidewalk. Great uber pickup location. Sidenote: even in blizzard, rooms were warm and obviously well insulated.

The Hotel Veritas is a beautifully-designed boutique hotel in close proximity to Harvard Square. Upon arrival, we got a warm, friendly greeting from the front desk, help with our luggage, and information about our room status. While the room was not ready, we took a short walk and received a prompt call when it was ready and were informed our luggage was already in the room. The room decor is elegant and cozy, taking advantage of space well for being a tight room. The finishes are high-end. Overall we had a wonderful stay. I will say though, however, the hotel is showing some signs of needed TLC, from a cracked glass top on one of the nightstands in our room, from stained carpets and walls in the room and in the hall. The lobby furniture looks worn and could use to be replaced. The gas fireplace in the lobby was never turned on, despite it being in the 30s outside. The small outdoor space was littered with trash and is deemed useless in the winter as there are no heaters or firepits. I think a few special touches could elevate this hotel further, but generally, we had a great stay thanks to the warm staff, comfortable room and great location.

The front desk staff were friendly and efficient. We reserved a two twin bed room and it was quite small. Essentially the room contained the two beds, a small desk/table with a stool, and a closet with a rather large safe that could easily fit some laptops. The bathroom size was ok, but did not have a lot of counter space. I feel they could have added a shelf on the wall to the left of the sink for more space. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The location is great f you are visiting Harvard. There are plenty of restaurants and bakeries within walking distance. The Harvard T stop is less than a 10 minute walk and the Central T stop approx. a 12 minute walk. The hotel is on a side street off of Mass Ave in a fairly pretty neighborhood. However, if you get a room facing Mass Ave, you can slightly hear the truck noises in the morning. If this bothers you, bring earplugs or request a room not near the street side. All in all, we were quite happy with this hotel.

In the heart of it all!! A boutique hotel with a cozy, at-home atmosphere. The most thoughtful and kind staff, the front desk manager really made sure we had a great visit; he suggested places to go and things to do (we had two kids 2 and 5 yo’s with us). It was our first time traveling again since the pandemic started and seeing how clean and well-kept the entire hotel and room were really eased all our worries. 10/10 would recommend and come again!!!!! Thank you so much Hotel Veritas team!

I came to Veritas Hotel on a business trip and I could not have asked for a better experience. The place was clean, the staff was friendly, and I felt right at home. The food in the area was great and the front desk staff was very helpful in providing suggestions on places to visit and restaurants to eat at. Veritas is at the top of my list for places to stay when I come back.

I had a wonderful experience during my stay. This hotel is in the middle of bustling Cambridge. Clean, friendly staff, great location, budget friendly. That’s all I look for in a hotel. Will book again when I return to Boston.

Hotel Veritas exceeded our expectations during our two-week stay. We needed accommodations while our bathroom was being renovated at home but we never expected to fall in love with our temporary housing. Everything from the moment we checked in made us feel right at home. From the front desk staff to the comfortable mattress, we were completely stress-free. When it was time to checkout we didn't want to leave! We will surely return for staycations in the future. HIGHLY recommend!
