Great boutique hotel. Neat, clean and comfortable. This is not a grand facility with a large lobby, bar and restaurant (in case you want to invite guests or set up for a large meeting). Rooms are rather small but well decorated. $34 per day for valet parking. Note that parking is tough in this part of town. Local residents usually... More

The room was lovely and very clean. We enjoyed the complimentary drinks and due to its location there was plenty of lovely eating options so not having a restaurant wasn't an issue. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, going out of their way to help. We were very comfortable and highly enjoyed our stay.

The hotel is in a great location and is a really beautiful, boutique hotel. The lobby is small but comfortable and there were small groups often gathered there. They offer coffee/tea/juice in the lobby at all times, which I really like. My room was a small Queen room that was a bit small, but it was clean and so pretty.... More

Gracious staff, a stone's throw from Harvard campus and Harvard Square. Rooms were refreshingly cold on a very hot weekend. Comfortable beds and bath amenities, enjoyed the balcony and patio. Complimentary coffee, water, juice and newspaper in lobby were a nice touch. Staff could not have been more helpful with recommendations on things to do, see and eat in the... More

I just completed a 2 day stay at the Hotel Veritas in Cambridge,MA. The stay was just wonderful. You could not have found a better place to stay that is just steps from the Harvard campus and in the heart of the funky cool college scene in Cambridge. The hotel is top notch, clean and cozy. Our room over looked... More

A wonderful, stylish hotel very conveniently located. Full price is more expensive than would normally pay but had a ~50% on booking.com so well worth it. The staff are friendly and the espresso machine is very handy!

My reservation was a last minute score! I had a traumatic airbnb experience in Allston and Veritas just happened to have had an available room when everything in Boston was sold out or more than I could dream of affording. The room was small, chic, clean, perfect! The staff was helpful and accommodating. I plan to stay here when ever... More
